    I know. 5 months here maybe, 600+ posts. Unlike some posters who´ve been here 4 times longer than me and have 20 times my post count. they don´t really post that much, but I sure do.

    A couple of unrelated thoughts.

    1. A Electrical Engineering prof I know, is a huge Yamamoto proponent - believes that he was the last of the great menswear visionaries, and that no one, his contemporaries like Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo, included, even came close. Definitely no one from the Belgian school, much less any of the Italians or Brits.
    We had a 40 minute conversation in "downtown" Moscow ID about Yamamoto, me in my usual, but he in a knee length coat with a fur collar and a fedora and loop earrings - one of the more surreal sights of the day. If anyone really wants to know the genesis of Yamamoto, they need, need, need, to get and watch "Notebook on City and Clothing": http://www.wim-wenders.com/movies/m...tiesandclothes/notebookoncitiesandclothes.htm

    2. I got my Trickers chukkas today - and if I do say so myself, I did and bloody fine job of matching colors and textures. Visone repello suede (warm grey), navy lining, natural welt, and blue vibram gumlite sole. I like the Trickers in the Shoehealer MTO gallery a lot more than the stock ones. People in the Trickers thread, have a little more dare in your choices. I'm not saying make clown shoes. But how about some color, some contrast, some textures?

    Well I guess the thing is we are trying to get a group MTO and try to get maximum no. of people satisfied (or less dissatisfied). I would love to source a LOL paisley fabric just to have it lined for a Dark Grey Chukka with blue gumlite soles.

    edit: I realized that basically 90% of what I want is already done in your design. Pics?

    I guess it is no surprise that I agree with this point of view :D.

    Yohji's play on traditional western silhouettes for men, his use of materials and his inspirations all put him at the top of the game for menswear when it comes to innovation and pushing the envelope. He has mined (and possibly influenced) youth culture, sports, black American culture, military, old world (both east & west), blurred gender lines and loads more. Of course the same could be said for a few other designers but none of them come close to his body of work I feel. All I am waiting for now is for him to approach his men's collection in at least one season from the same angle as his women's. Abstract and with less of a foundation on established men's clothing templates.

    i used to, kinda got tired of it though. only significant buys i made were cdg frags, I used sequoia for a while and I bought two of the monocle collabos, hinoki and laurel. I used to get tons of samples from luckyscent but yeah I basicaly just got lazy/stopped caring a little. Always wanted to get some serge lutens or l'artisan parfumer. right now though i'd rather drop 3 or 3 hundo on clothes than scents. I dunno.
