    Isn't there a Vuitton shop etc., at Westfield?

    I remember it as being huge with an uniqlo and loads of mall brand women.

    It's easier to answer you last question and flip it around to "How many different threads does he NOT post in?"


    I hope you're in good with God and pray extra hard. Otherwise, heed the advice of others and buy/bring an umbrella.

    I must have missed uniqlo. I do remember seeing Dior.

    I just don't really like that kind of retail environment tbh.

    Yeah, it's definitely generic, but still pretty fun. Just make sure you go to the Sheps Bush one, not the Stratford one.

    DSM, Liberty and Selfridges are always worth checking out. As is Harrods if you're feeling masochistic. Lamb's Conduit Street also has some pretty good shops.

    I can't stand malls, so wasn't a fan.






    The whole Dover Street area is pretty good, Lamb's conduit street has a lot of SF approved brands definitely worth a visit, Spitalfields/Shoreditch is pretty good as well (from Spitalfields market up to Arnold Circus/Calvert Av./Redchurch street)

    That store leaves me cold. It way too designer/European trendy and too married to its own spectacle. I'm sure @Synthese knows what I'm talking about. I think that the core problem is that the store is too much a part of the fashion world, and the buyers and merchandisers don't ever have to leave their cocoon of mastabatory self-congratulation.

    It's the same shit that makes much of any industry, from fashion to academia to tech stagnant and boring. I'm glad that I get to visit a lot of fashion centers, but am not surrounded my likeminded people all the time.The lack of true challenge to your core ideas and ideals makes you complacent.

    LVR is a pretty reliable place to get certain things though. And they do ship duty paid. :embar: Wish we could see something on Antonioli.

    Sure. But the physical store is straight out of Zoolander. And a lot of the stuff sucks, by any standard.

    Their biggest buys are Givenchy and SLP so you know. I guess LVR is ok if you want to buy a pair of jeans or smthg but it's such a fucking terrible store, where fuccboi meets eurotrash and tight tight tight suits, also so many hoodies and tshirts.

    I just know they almost always have raws (DH/SLP) at a decent price. :embar: There's some pretty terrible other stuff too, but yeah.

    Barney's is stocking the Geller jumpsuit btw.

    OK guys here it goes I am so done with the skinny jeans!! My APCs are a form of CBT nowadays. Was thinking of replacing them with looser fitting denim, but times are a changing and I need an upgrade. My thighs are pretty meaty from 6th grade kickball league so nothing constricting. Ideally something casual that won't look out of place with tees and leather, but not sweatpants. Nothing too drawp crawtch either, shit is too 2009. Any suggestions? I can't describe it but I'll know when I see it.

    What does CBT mean? Computer-based training?
