    everytime I see this I get very sad.

    now people can attempt the junya without going bankrupt! it is genius and made for Mikey! The old Shades stuff actually fit nice too but I haven't tried anything on in a few years.

    The Dries shirt I got has such a bizarre cut. Shoulder seams hit right, but then the chest is H U G E. Looks like a poncho. It's like it was cut with extra fabric deliberately with the intention of the buyer having it tailored. Fabric is awesome though so rather than return it I am just gonna get it tailored. Shouldn't cost too much. I should send the leftovers to kgmessier so he can make a tiny shirt (if you haven't seen his second life of a jacket thread you should check it out).

    I just meant there is far too much volume. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to have been designed to be worn this way—it really just looks like a formless, ill-fitting shirt. Luckily the shoulders fit appropriately, so it should be salvageable. Even with the alterations it's a good deal, so I'm not particularly upset.


    Ah, yes, you're right. My bad. That thread is incredible though. Wish I had those sort of skills.

    Haha. Alright. Pic will have to wait a bit as shirt/camera are at home.

    In other news, still recovering from dinner last night: brandade de morue; duck breast; tarte tatin; lots and lots of wine...some pleasures are worth their pain
