    this. I'd see him around T.O and I'd just chuckle. This was before he made it big, but had a shitload of mixtapes floating around haha.

    most of his pieces are actually very nice. nothing wrong with oxxford suits and brioni pants. most of his shoes are john lobb are brioni.

    so what if he has an eye for exotics?

    if you're gonna complain about something complain about the sea turtle.



    I'm all for exotic pieces, but it seems as if most of his clothes were purchased by a blind squirrel.

    Exactly, he owns what seems like hundreds of the things I most despise in clothing, i.e. leather blazers, square toed croc shoes, horrible prints, etc. etc. and then takes really ugly pictures of them daily. You would think that over the course of years of taking pictures of clothing, he would've learned how to make them at least seem appealing.

    Teger is not actually serious he is just conducting a psychological study on herd mentality.

    no i think kitonbrioni is pretty cool. he was a nice guy (when he posted) and he deserves at least some sort of acknowledgement for taking the time to post pictures every single day.. for years. also he has a lot of extremely nice clothing in his collection and examples of many pieces that are no longer made, and will never be again (see: 80s japanese runway items, sea turtle leather belts and shoes). for example these shoes rule http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_8SeHKkN-C5...1_edited-1.jpg

    yeah but just because he's nice, doesn't mean his shit can't look like ass. Shit, some of the nicest people have the ugliest clothes. You're telling me that you'd wear the hoodie I posted, with those shoes? (he actually did wear them together; that's the joke)

    nope, but if i was an old dude i'd wear al ot of his shit. are you telling me if someone gave you a cashmere and shearling lined leather brioni topcoat you wouldn't wear it? or john lubb bluchers? or brioni alligator balmorals?

    and his patek is awesome

    skip over the ugly shit and look at the really, really, really nice things.

    there are more ugly than nice, tbh. But I can tell you feel passionately about this, so I'm just gonna drop it.

    i just have an issue when people go OMG EVERYTHING FITS LIKE SHIT!!! when the dude was really ill and lost a lot of weight.

    it also underscores an issue a lot of people have on sf. just because you might want something doesn't mean that's what everyone wants.. it comes up a lot with shit like 'well why would you just buy j crew and not band???' yea there's arguments about quality/fit etc.. but they only go so far

    ohh. did not know that.

    on a separate note, did the other gilt thread get deleted too? how come the one in mc is still around

    this part I understand, although I have never commented on his fits. I've only ever commented on his choice of clothing.

    J cleared it up in the Mod thread saying that it wasn't an affiliate termination

    Here you go:
    The Gilt Groupe thread and banners have been taken down temporarily as we try to figure out what is going on with them. Their links have not been working for a while now and we are trying to iron out details. Neither they nor we have unilaterally cancelled our relationship and it doesn't have anything to do with the recent "Exclusive stuff made for Gilt" thread.
