    just a word about black bird. They are dismantling the store and sent me the wrong trousers over a month ago. They haven't reacted on multiple e-mails, save for a "we'll answer tomorrow" two weeks or so back. Wouldn't give them business.

    I dealt with Blackbird a while ago and the service was good, but I'm pretty sure they've closed down though.

    Blackbird closed their store about a month ago.
    They are now making/selling their own products (soap, etc), primarily wholesale to other boutiques.
    Not sure what is going to happen with their site, but I wouldn't expect that anything listed 'in stock' is actually in stock beyond their own products.

    I don't believe they will be selling any clothing items again.
    There were whispers of some other types of items that we might be interested in, but I have no idea where all of that stuff landed . . .

    Anture got in a hat, zip scarves, and a sweater in two red and brown. Not the rubber stripe one I'm hoping to find though.

    Blackbird, RIP. I'll hate on them for their price markups and crappy sales, but they always provided good customer service to me.

    Plus they always supported Geller (from the very start) and stocked some of his more adventurous pieces.

    Although not on the site, 12345 has the Extended Vest in stock (2 sizes, 46 & 48). Seems the usual suspects didn't pick this piece up

    This one:

    edit:
    They also have the dress denim. which is really cool in person. But no more zip blazers

    Well, just got the good news back from Robert - we will be preselling 15 items. These are items that were prominent on the runway, but that traditional stockists are more reluctant to carry because of the risk involved, which means that we have a chance to help get these items put into production. I'm waiting for confirmation of the number needed to put each item into production, and for the runway pictures.

    Get ready to be part of history, gentlemen.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Do you know if this includes larger sizes of pieces that are strictly sold in the Japanese market?

    Yup. And most of this stuff are things that you usually have to scour the corners of the internet and learn how to read Japanese to find... only to find that you can never get it, because they never made it into production. Then you yelled out to the heaven's about the unfairness of it all.
