    Well, in her conference, the woman says that fast fashion actually "encourages",(or pushes) designer to be very creative and innovative (thus the weird runway shows for instance)... I actually see it as "overproducing" + consumerism at its worst. Back in the day, l thought theres only men and women fall winter / spring summer seasons (4 shows a year) and l recently learned that in the women section, there are actually a RTW collection, sometimes a pre-collection... Honestly, what's the point of this? Zara, thanks to their business model, operates really fast (i rean it takes them 2 weeks from seeing an item on a runway to have it in their stores) and having 4 to 6 collection a year is the reason it's called "fast fashion"... But when a Designer's brand do the same, l see it as useless overproduced stuff, no matter the quality.

    everything is derivative. wear cool shit that you like. try to understand the design philosophy behind the shit you're wearing.

    That is not talking about young labels. in the present climate, entrepreneurialship is rewarded. In addition, a lot of people are getting into fashion via non-traditional avenues, which is fine. This shit is not rocket science. No one dies if you make a few shitty shirts.

    I think I can wear some of the EG blazers inside out. Some of their inner lining is amazing (Black viscose with silk paisley sleeve/ colorful floral, etc)

    edit: I had this thought after seeing some Yohji and CDG stuff from the past that had the inside-out detail. Now I wonder what their inside look like

    F/W York St at J Press had a great grey flannel suit which for some reason still had a full size range left in stock at 50% off or something so maybe wait for next year's F/W season?

    Current BBBF cut looks way too awkward and the price is just getting ridiculous. If you have the dime I would save for a suit from Thom Browne's 'new' line which is actually a nod back to his classic designs.

    If you want something 'minimalist' then Yang Li has had some decent ones.

    What do you guys think about combining light wash denim jacket with a dark dress shirt(black/navy)?
    For example:

    Dark dress shirts are almost always ugly, and it will look godawful with a light wash denim jacket

    I want this $2000 coat.

    It's so rad, but so expensive.

    That's like 1.5 trips to an exotic location.

    But the coat is just so glorious.

    ^ What KoY said.
    It's actually hard to pull off dark shirts well, but with very few exceptions, light blue doesn't look good with black, especially as a jacket.
    If you want to wear that washed denim jacket anyway, keep it simple : a white t shirt (or a discreet graphic white tee), or a checkered shirt for a more 'Americana'/ trucker look.
    Regarding dark shirts,I own only one black shirt with white polka dots. Though beautiful and nicely cut, I rarely wear it (seems to work only with black trousers -waiter/bouncer look- and a grey or red jacket).
    Actually, though less mentioned here, I find navy shirts way hard to pull off... Anyone agrees?
