    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Now open to talk about all unaffiliated retailers. The new S/S Tres Bien Shops website went up today. The store is based out of Sweden and they carry a pretty nice selection of European and American designers, my favorites being Vibskov, Wood Wood, Our Legacy, and Ervell....however they also will be stocking APC, BOO, Raf, Raf Simons, Rogues Gallery, OC and CP, and a slew of other forum favorites. They had a really great sale at the end of this past season. Right now, they only have part of the Ervell, Vibskov and CDG Play collections up, but according to an e-mail shit will be piling in real fast within the next week, so keep checking back.http://www.men.tresbienshop.net

    Yea, more will be up soon from all brands. I remain one of the few people who really like Vibskov stuff. His stuff is much more wearable in person than on the runway. Certain pieces that is. I like those silk pants, cut out tank top and tshirt a lot. The patched button ups are kinda cool

    good to see the store back up though I actually prefer the old website... the brand list has expanded though which is great. The vibskov "rich bux trousers" look like a better version of last seasons broke trousers which is cool. Also liking the geometric tee, and if the silk africa pants hit deep sale i'll have to grab them.

    And dont know if its just me but it looks like the model has done some serious coke sniffing between this and last seasons pictures.

    Yea, the broke trousers were definitely less wearable. I like these new ones. Come sales time, i may have to scour some overseas webstores. Lots of them carry vibskov

    Just noticed that their prices include 25% swedish tax. Since they take 25% all non-EU orders, CP's can actually be had for ~$220; that's got to be the best price around for the new season.

    I was actually considering buying a pair of the silk pants, but I'm a bit worried they will get wrinkled really quickly, and I hate ironing. I really like the cut though so I still may get a pair of them. I'm not 100% yet. ~$170 + shipping seems like a pretty good price though. Anyone happen to have measurements on those pants, or know where to find them?

    It would actually be $245 shipped to the US. Still not a bad price.

    Quick question, I've never bought from a store in another country before. How long can I expect it to be held up in customs if at all?

    I know Tres Bien Shop is hardly to blame, but CdG PLAY is a real travesty.

    I like some of the our legacy stuff. nice looking basics and reasonable pricing. only seen one sweater in real life @ blackbird and it was nice in quality and fit, imo. clothes are not very flattering on tres bien's "model", however.

    ^That's true, you have to use your imagination a bit if you're not built like that dude, hahah. But actually, I think he looks pretty decent in most of the stuff considering that he certainly isn't a model or whatever. Our Legacy this season looks like a nicer, better designed J Crew, not sure if that's good or bad, but hopefully it'll attract some forum members, prices are pretty reasonable this season. I imagine shit's gonna fly when sales start.

    I really want this shirt from our legacy. http://www.men.tresbienshop.net/en/a...t-ruby-red.php The model isn't making my decision very easy though

    This is soooooooooo true.

    I like the shoes from Our Legacy. They look like they're at a very good price point. Any ideas what the construction quality is like? Any sizing issues?

    I think he's fine, he actually looks like he's lost weight since last season. I don't what peoples deal is.

    The model is distracting from the clothes, thats the problem. half-assed mustache, pursed lips, etc. If people notice the model at all, you're doing something wrong. [​IMG]

    Dude looks like a pedophile. Or my 7th grade wood shop teacher (who, incidentally, was a pedophile). At least the weird Oki-Ni model looks "interesting." This guy just looks like a run-of-the-mill child rapist.

    That model is a bit creepy,
    but let's focus on the clothes and the website.
    If the shipping charge is not too pricey, there are some
    stuff I'd definitely buy.

    Good point. I bet this bag could fit a small child easily.

    Can anybody care to comment on the customs (have to pay??). Planning to have it shipped to somebody in the states.
