    I've been on a polo shirt jag that I can't seem to stop. I'll even pick up the cheap ones. Saw a Chaps polo on sale for 10 bucks and so of course... I removed the pocket w/ the big-ass insignia, which in my mind immensely improved it.

    How's the guerilla store? Was going to make a point to visit it this past trip but ran out of time.

    I wasn't really too keen on going but my buddy wanted to check it out so I met him there before we headed to west LA. I have to say though it was pretty fucking cool and glad I went. Buddy dropped several bills then again he's an impulse buyer. The guy working there is Brett, really cool dude and unholy matrimony designer.

    They have archived pieces that Rei had stored in warehouses in japan over the years so it's possible to come across pieces that one missed out on or didn't appreciate until later like me never being into cdg much. Spent a good hour in there, Brett was a wealth of info and it's a lovely little space. There isn't a ton of clothes but enough to find something good. I just got a little turned off at full retail, should be somewhat discounted but that's another topic of discussion.

    Fade-designers don't go on sale until end of the month but my boy actually holds the shit for me for a week or two before sale time. I'm going to get some ricks too if they make it as well as a couple bless pieces.

    yeah when the CdG Guerrilla set up in HK it was more of a space for archival pieces from cdg (mostly the SHIRT line though as it seems to be its most popular line in HK along with 'Play') and junya, as well as some small accessories. wasn't too impressed with the space, the items were too basic mostly tees and shirts, not to mention it was really out of the way of places to set up a retail shop (i think the Undercover boutique has taken over that space, they're all spearheaded by the Silly Thing group).

    Thanks. $300. Gravity Pope in Edmonton. I believe there are only two stores in Canada carrying them. I am not sure about their availabilty in the States.

    Yes and no I guess. I've been in a bag craze lately though, and it seems like the perfect ones that I have in my mind don't exist in real life. [​IMG]

    They do exist, even if not yet. It took me 6 months to find the perfect black bag, and I did, just recently. You shouldn't settle!
