they're not the same design of pocket but yes, it has side entry pockets
haha yeah, it's based on an old-timey grip bag, just an old style weekender type that people traveled with or something. I actually think it's a really beautiful design and would love to see a good reinterpration of it for a girls bag, mostly just made smaller of course but maintaining the copper tubing. I like bags that are between structured and floppy, like the chloe paraty and stuff.
Ever asked a woman what they think about Chloe bags though? They will tell you two things basically - cute, and heavy as fuck. The 5lb padlock adds to that, but yeah, tons of hardware.
I think it's more obvious in the lower end ones like the airs and macbooks where the screens are pretty lousy to start.
Looks great . Drew, why would you want to discontinue this??
Does look real good there tbf...
Yeah an ex had the Paraty in python but it was a major love-hate relationship. And she had that Chanel Caviar (classic flap) and with that serious metal chain strap it did like actual damage to her shoulder over time. All black and blue and shit, kind of gross really. So mostly she reached for the Bal. Arena even though it was like a Kelly green color, but that was my favorite.
She was a serious bag girl so that's the only reason I know anything about them. Not bad knowledge to have I guess around here since there is some good spotting to be done and it helps with identifying girls I might want to talk to just a little bit longer.
drew, what kind of furniture/design magazines do you read (if any)?
and whats the word on nylon/tech goodies
It looks fantastic but IDK if the collar really adds anything. It's the fit and the leather that make it look great.
it does look way less 'dad' in that context.
I dunno, it looks to me like it balances out the bottom zip pockets, drawing attention to the top and bottom of the jacket and away from the middle. Overall effect is slimming.
I get a lot of Japanese (surprise!!) interior mags and books as they function like catalogs, just like the fashion mags, sometimes I read the western ones like Wallpaper and Dwell, but the kind of spaces I'm used to in Asia are just not glamorous or big enough to suit anything in the world of Western glossy design mags. Those western design mags will come in handy if I win the lotto or something, I guess.
THere's a magazine here called 'Real Design' that focuses mostly on product/industrial design. Fun magazine.
Technical clothing is a headache, almost ready to give up on that idea. It's one of those things where you gotta throw a bunch of money at the preparations for it, it's for the big guys - we don't operate like that. We take leather, our paper patterns, turn them out on conventional industrial machines, it doesn't take going to a textile factory and starting from fibers of an idea. If I had money to run custom stuff like that, I'd probably be in a different business.
+1 for dwell and wallpaper.
thanks for the heads up too
Dwell always reminds me of unhappyhipsters.com and that fyeahmenswear post where the store stocks "negative space"
Dwell was alright, took a detour somewhere after it gained in popularity and got a little commanding and preachy (yeah yeah...) and I think one of my ex-gf's works there now. Couple strikes against it.
