    Thanks for the tip. I actually was in Kinokuniya recently checking out the magazines you recommended to me. Some really good stuff so thanks again for that. I think I might go back today to see if they have this though, and pick up a new copy of GO OUT as well.

    I don't know what the price will be of the CdG magazine but guys feel free to PM me if you want a copy. Before doing that make sure you are OK with paying up to $30 shipped since the magazines can get very pricey. Realistically it will be more like $22 shipped or so if the magazine is like $18, but I don't want to end up with a dozen copies of a bulky $25 magazine from people that flake on me when they get the sticker shock. I'm not going to gouge anyone on costs or something stupid, but I know how much people like CdG so if they actually have it, I would be happy to send it out.

    Because SF is its own fashion microculture, there are a lot of first posts in shitty threads that start 'hi i'm a guy who wants to become more stylish, right now i have some gap khakis but what do i do next' and then everyone bitches him out until he buys raw jeans and white sneakers. Which is a good place to start but it's also where people often stop.

    Also, the 'loud' designers tend to be fuckin expensive

    Also also, I would say the RO/Julius/Yohji stuff is all pretty 'loud', it's more a question of Jeremy Scott et al making clothes with a sense of humor, which people (myself included) are afraid of for various reasons.


    for sure

    Borneo 1834 is unfuckwithable as is Filles en Aiguille. What kind of non-exports?

    Only slightly rhetorical question - how the fuck do you sit through that entire movie? I can watch whatever quantity of Jarmusch or Cassavetes or whatever, but fuckin a Wim Wenders was insufferable. Maybe there's a huge change in the last 20 minutes but I thought he took a good Yohji movie and turned it into a movie all about Wim Wenders and accordion waltzes.

    BW has a studio in Paris, is a pothead and makes weird/artsy/uber gay presentations and clothes, his best bud is François Sagat. Wearers are more kokon to zai than little post-rave ravers.

    Caricaturing:
    WvB: old gen homo, into fun/fiunky designs but much more militant and intellectual approach. He teaches at the royal academy and is like, say, what your NYC prof would be if he was a bear wearing fluo designs.
    BW: new gen homo, decadent and hedonistic, art freaks crowd. They're like lads, except smarter, dressed weird and really gay.

    as far as I know, SL's Sarrasins and Bois Oriental are non-export. Was curious about Filles en Aiguilles but not sure if I like pine enough...
    I'm gonna try out some exports and perhaps if it works out get one of those two as well.

    But . . . .

    Select Size: One Size
    Size & Fit: "Comfortably fits US 7 to 9"

    Why can't teensy Japanese people make big clothes for export?

    This guy seems like a tool, and Kanye is obviously a tool, so wherein lies your confusion?

    These were available at oi polloi and inventory in the past. I strongly considered getting them cause they're so awesome looking (this was the color I was least a fan of though). Ultimately decided against it for that and the fact that it seems good in concept but I would have no fucking idea of how to actually integrate them into my wardrobe.

    Late pass, but I think fake fragrances are almost universally yucky. I use unscented deodorant and soap, and my shaving cream and aftershave lotion are as fragrance-free as I could find.
