Got my Black PH hightops from thecorner in today, fucking awesome
Just need my DR now
like how no one watched the movie on the rachel comey site last night with me.
the one on the splash page? that was cool but i only left it on for about 45 seconds.
what do you need? maybe I can get it if its not really heavy.
The corner and Mr. Porter are in an excessive-packaging face off.
If I'm going to get a pair of jeans tapered, is there anything in particular I should tell the tailor besides the desired amount of tapering? I don't wanna end up with reedojeans.
Keep in mind that I live in an area where a tailor seemed confused when I asked if she could slim the bodies of some button-down shirts I had.
I see what you're saying, but ... I think cultural imagery is pretty much free to anyone to do what they want with it, for better or worse. Certainly they shouldn't use the name Navajo, but "native-inspired" dress doesn't strike me as offensive, as an outsider looking in.
I gave the bag to my mom, since she loves shit like that. The holiday catalog is kind of cute, too.
artishard is on the case
but thanks for the offer lane. im looking for one of the ultra light down jackets. might splurge on the veilance tho
I'm hoping for something like this
Was gonna tell you to get one of these instead of like the patagonia nano puff that I think you were asking about. Hope you like it!

PK, if it's selvedge and you don't wanna fuck with that you should ask to taper the inseam, not the out seam. other than that, just make sure he pins it and it looks the way you want.
a quote from the article stuck out to me about a "hip hop vibe" in some American Indian clothing line.
Agree with Drew entirely.
For years corporations have been taking advantage of cultural designs without a) thinking about the significance of said designs b) providing any monetary/otherwise form of compensation for the use of distinct and recognisable design.
One of my "suitably ethnic" pendants that you may have seen has a cool little backstory behind it.
Through the 70s and 80s, Air New Zealand used plastic, made-in-china hei tiki as promotional goods; they would basically just give them away to their passengers like you would those flight socks. Not only was this done without any effort to pay, it was also done without consultation regarding the spiritual significance of such a design. Needless to say the result was not only cheap and tacky but, some might say, rape of culture. More reading if you're so inclined.
A couple of years ago a Maori artist decided to make 12 replicas of the Air NZ tiki.
Here is mine:
It gets interesting when you look at the back:
