    I think it is all awesome, but my interest is in the shirt in this picture.

    Where can I get something similar?

    Or can I get it on their online store?

    How much does it cost?

    And what fabric is it made of of?



    Why not ask them? http://ovadiaandsons.tumblr.com/

    Awesome label, though I would love to touch and feel it. I just can't rationalize spending much more than a hundred bucks on a shirt with my meagre salary. One day........

    The new SS12 line looks really good. The fit is a little too shrunken for me, but the styling is pretty swell. A few pics from the Sartorially Inclined blog which has more images. Love the saddles.

    Figured the two-inch cuff/no sock look would be over by now, but I guess if you have your models wear socks and normal-sized cuffs then the fanboys won't fap to the pics.

    from what I hear the pants are going from $215 to $345. If this is true, FUCK O&S.

    Where did you get this info? Looks like some are actually going on sale.

    So here's what's funny: those pants were $215 until about 4 weeks ago. Then they arbitrarily just added $50 and now they are "on sale" for about $15 less than what they were available for all spring.

    As to winter flannels, I confirmed with O&S that they are $365.

    They have definitely lost my business.

    Has anyone successfully bought and obtained an item from them? I have had great difficulty communicating with the staff and it is discouraging.

    This is from the FW 11 lookbook of Ovadia & Sons:

    [​IMG]

    More

    The sensation around Ovadia I don't understand: it's a tightly edited Polo collection with a slightly modernized cut -- shorter coats, narrower trousers -- and some of the wider lapels that look fresh after the 60s revival cycle. So nu?

    The difference this fall is the styling. Their last look book was an anonymous model in a studio, a Polo-esqe rich boy.

    Ali, the model here, is the proprietor of his own styling/branding agency. He's not shaped like a runway model but he's a grown man, handsome and charismatic. Has an LA music industry background. Did production work on THE CHRONIC.

    Through him, and the photography of Justin Chung, Oviadia breaks out of the bell jar of the Poloverse and into the world of urban prep, like a more tailored version of what you might get at Brooklyn Circus.

    It's a neat bit of repositioning.
