    Yeah I don't think it really meshes with your current direction, snow.

    I liked the blazer on the video presentation last year but seeing it in the wild it kinda looks a very bland blazer with gimmicky zippers :confused:

    zippers on blazers are as good--both from utilitarian and aesthetic standpoints--as zippers on aeroplanes.

    Isn't that what Patrick Bateman wore to kill Paul Allen?

    For some reason I thought the zippers were on the elbow side which would've have made them appear at least pseudo-utilitarian, the actual zipper placement makes no sense for me though.

    Devoa SS12 is so on my radar after I saw the yoga video on their site. Such great fabrics and cuts. The detail shots make me want some pieces even more. Really like the pants with the extra long legs and the cream hoodie. Will definitely be buying.

    Dammit, I like the Sruli Recht stuff too as well (and he gets plus points for being based in Iceland - place I most want to go after Japan). This look shall be replicated this year -

    thanks for the links! Realise I had seen their stuff on some of those sites before. Crappy model pics kept me from paying attention.

    Devoa always looks good to me. It's a shame (imo) that it's been co-opted by the goth ninja crowd - yes, I know that it's not homogeneous, but the agglomerate attitude is extremely irritating to me, as are skinny dudes with no muscle tone acting generally gloomy. imo, if you can spend a few thousand on a ramie and linen jacket, you should be sporting a big, shit-eating grin.

    The construction, as with a lot of "artisanal" brands, is stone-aged, but the cutting and designs are pretty excellent. I'm looking forward to the jackets, especially. Some of those belts look nice as well in the pictures, but I have never actually seen them in person, so can't really have an opinion on those.

    Just curious-- could you go into more detail about what makes the construction methods of brands like Devoa "stone aged", what they're lacking, etc? 'specially for people like me who salivate over the brand but who have never handled a piece in person.

    People often layer black, which gets polarized reactions, but what about layering white? IMO you'd have to be careful to not look like a painter.

    never handled Devoa but I don't get why SZ loves it so much, tbh.


    its so boring and bland brand despite probably being some of the best constructed stuff out there for the human body. They usually also need to appreciate things for the drama as do I.


    guess its similar to why they like artisan brands and even schneider, attention to detail and good quality/construction.
