    is replay crappola???

    [​IMG]

    i didn't even know replay was a real store until corniche. i just assumed it was some one off store at the bev center that sold crap for overinflated prices that people would buy because it was at the bev center.

    i guess the latter can still be true.

    I like their stuff a lot better after my thread ripper is done with branding removal. Good fit/decent price.

    What ever happened to that line they were going to do with Dries Van Noten?
    The Dries Van Noten "Correct Line" is now available but not in large quantities. I have seen one small rack stocked at their Sydney store. The line is definitely cleaner than normal G-Star stuff but most pieces do still generally carry a G-star logo somewhere. Think small pony as opposed to large pony PRL. The stuff is very slim fit. I am normally a European 48 in jacket size. The 48 sportscoat I tried on in store was very fitted especially in the shoulders/arms and I don't have huge guns by any means. The line does not seem to be priced noticably higher than normal G-Star stuff.

    Personally, as long as it isn't drenched in tacky embrodiery and stiched lettering i'll consider a g-starr piece. I've seen some plan black/gray accessories, sweaters and jackets that I'l wear if the price were right.

    I could have sworn there was a replay, either under pinkberry or next to it.

    The sign is a really cheap light up one. Never give the store any time of day-it looks really crappola

    there's a Replay store upstairs across from Banana Republic on the Macy's side. IIRC it's a british denim brand (?), been around a long time

    Is it sad that you know the layout of the Bev Center so well? Survey says...: Yes.

    Is that the real story about your Rick that fell off the back of a truck?

    a friend of mine wears g-star all the time, and it always looks pretty good, especially the outerwear... and some of it doesnt really have a whole lot of obvious branding on it, so i think they are toning that down now. He has a jacket from the "correct line" and i think the only logo it has is on the hardware.

    I was under the impression that their denim is actually quite good and their logo-free (or at most, subtle/minimal corporate embroidery) jackets are decent and at least worth considering.

    I'm no apologist for serious douchewear, but G-star is one where I make an exception to. They are, after all, a business, so I'll excuse them for selling hordes of tacky garbage (the logo t-shirt, logo hoodie, etc) to fund their decent pieces. I apply the same line of thinking to designers such as J. Lindeberg.

    Really can't stand the name though... G-STAR... it seems to fit the profile of some rather undesirable persons.
