1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Nataku, thank you for reviving this thread to its true glory...even if it was SW&D!

    (and I was wondering why the new posts were 100+ when I logged on!)

    Thanks guys for all the props! Really excited about this haul and even more so because most of the stuff fits me so I can keep some as trophy finds. Seriously though, $10k?! Wow!! I can't even imagine retail value.

    Easy - I'm willing to bet the same as you, this stuff screams professional musician. Minneapolis is a big music city and I know of a lot of big-time musicians are from Minnesota. Bob Dylan, Prince, Eddie Cochran and a few others are from bunch of others all hail from here.



    I'll ease your mind; it wasn't even close. If they had been there they wouldn't have even made it out onto the floor! Haha!

    So awesome, Nataku. That you can keep and wear some of it makes it even sweeter. Looks like that stuff came straight off the runway. I'd love to know who it came from—musician was my first thought too.

    I'd say you're having a pretty great week!

    I've only seen 2 pieces of his stuff and they are all cut kinda baggy. It's kinda shocking to see him design with so many muted colors and create different shapes when everyone else was doing the form fitting look. I once read in an interview he drew inspiration from Japanese kimono shapes to give his clothes energy. I guess that explains it.
    I can see myself wearing that HL jacket with the thingy on the cuffs.

    Wow, thanks for the info! As a new comer to the world of fashion, I've always stuck to the classic men's wear because it's safe. I've always wondered and was curious about the more adventurous side of fashion and design but never had the courage to venture to that side. Thanks again for hooking it up!

    Just read this interview which helped me to understand his design philosophy. Good informative stuff.

    Also watched this interview.

    I want to congratulate Nat, too. Although it's by far the ugliest haul I've ever seen--and although I know circus-folk who wouldn't wear that stuff in their act--it's an amazing find. Probably the best ever on this thread.

    I haven't had a lot of time to post this week, but I wanted to join the chorus in saying that was an incredible haul, Nat. Not only the one from yesterday, but also all of the Hermés et al that you posted a couple of days ago!

    Incredibly fun to see this stuff posted, whether I'd wear/use it or not. Keep it coming! :slayer:

    Like Tirailleur1 said, there are many guys who could rock that stuff like a baws.

    You dudes need to spend some time on WAYWT, or one of the many Yohji threads on the SWD side. There's an entire world of clothing diversity going on out there.
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/164384/the-waywt-discussion-thread/95415

    I would rock the everloving FUCK out of some of those pieces. So glad Nat, of all people, scored that stuff. Such an exceptional dude.

    Nat, please please please do an epic level SWD thrift fit with some of the pieces that you decide to keep.

    Phenomenal. Should we PM you if we want something or are you just going to put it all on Ebay? Will you be giving us a heads up?
