    from what i've handled, his shoes are not complex at all. look at that pic, it's just folded leather and a rubber band. it's not produced in house (but i think i read somewhere his family has a tannery so its possible leathers come from there or i guess guidi which is where the cool kids get their leathers). i think his clothes are very interesting, if you get a chance to handle it you might notice the aggressiveness, and it kinda approaches the idea of fashion art. it's also the most formal antithesis to "saville row attire," which was the feature of that article i just read this morning, and probably another reason why i like it conceptually. i really don't think i could/would wear it, and i think a lot of it is nice just on its own, without a human being inside the garments. hell there are pants stand on the ground without the wearer present :eek:

    edit: to stay on topic, how many scarves is too many :embar:

    well i did like the grey/black mixes schneider did but didn't want alpaca or wool or angora, so i went with linen on linen. it's 9 feet long and 19" wide time for summa drape!

    why didn't you go by the tagged size and what you knew about the brand?

    a lot of people expect tailor quality measurements for sub $20 shirts here its ridiculous

    It was the first time I bought LUC pants so I was going by what he said...which he stated was a size 46 on his thread, but i asked for measurements etc.

    he didnt tell me that tag size and it doesnt even have it on the pants itself when it arrived. He told me they were a 46 cuz christian said so, and I believed him. My mistake is buying it from him when he gave me terrible measurements which didnt follow with the actual fit.

    anyways I got a new pair coming in from a store that actually tells me the correct info

    i would've kopped the Geller stefan pants from acrimony if I'd seen them in time

    i recently tried to renew my Brazilian passport, but voting is mandatory in Brazil and to renew your passport you have to provide proof that you voted. I didn't vote, so they're telling me I can't renew my passport. :fu: :fu: :fu:

    shah, if I were to buy and order a new pair its gonna be like $850+ taxes/customs and im gonna wait a month and a half for when I could get a good condition pair now? If used shoes bother you, I also bought rick sneaks for like $500 as well, and the staples were falling off, lmao.


    all my other footwear have been brand new though. I just dont wanna wait for these like I am with a current pair of guidi!
