What do you guys think about Duchamp's new site, shirts, new RTW suits and jackets?

I love their new shirt range but they didn't do the best job displaying possible combinations IMO. Some of the new accessories such as the bow ties and scarves are great.

What do you think?

I get bored with looking at Duchamp now. It's just the same bright stripe coloured shirts in different colour bands. There's only so much more "new" stuff they can come out with.

It's all too loud for me but I have a couple of their white shirts and I'm impressed with the construction and material.

Some of their new cufflinks are pretty interesting though:

I think the suits look really nice if you want something really LOUD. It's not quite my thing but I can see the appeal.

On the shirts; I was quite disappointed in the quality when I tried one on. They aren't as good as cheap Thomas Pink shirts IMHO...

That's the reason why Duchamp has so much appeal to middle-aged chavs: the brand is like the Duchess of York,
who was once memorably discribed as: "a vulgarian . . . vulgar, vulgar, vulgar".

It's for those, who secretly fancy 'Ed Hardy', but are not honest or bolshy enough to wear it.

As opposed to classy men like yourself. They're just shirts, ties and accessories that's all. You either like them or you do not, just like shoes made from 'exotic' skins for example. I know this is a difficult concept for you to understand given your sensitivities. You have my sympathies.

Couldn't that be called monotonous?

That's completely false. Two totally different things..?

45 to be exact. Now that's called pedantic.

If you don't like Duchamp, that's fine. They are too bold for some. However, I am curious as to why you think I hate Rubinacci? If anything, I've stuck up for them in the past, both on here and on FNB.com I don't like the cut, but that's a personal thing anyway.

I own a couple of Duchamp ties and I love them and I like (but not own) their cufflinks.

I found their socks wear through very quickly, even with delicate treatment. The pants look beautiful, but I cannot justify the expense for my nether regions. The rest of it, I'm too timid to wear.
