    I'm on the search for a suit, a few pairs of trousers, the perfect black blazer, and probably a couple pairs of shoes.

    Probably won't pick up the suit or blazer though.

    I've got the Robert Geller M65 in brown preordered. I'll also pick up a few pieces from the upcoming Wings+Horns collection, which will have some standout pieces. I'll buy much more blue and brown this season, with some charcoals, but many fewer blacks and grey then I did last FW.

    NDG cadet shirt and frames.
    Few Geller outerwear pieces caught my eye, not sure what it's called but the short length M-65 looking jacket.
    EG Bedford, field jacket, some pants (sweats and Norwegian army)
    MANBAG. Frost River if I can ever find a picture, otherwise I hopefully can track down a EG haversack.

    add Geller to the list of brands I don't get the hype over
    -American designer who isn't just rehashing workwear or americana.
    -High production quality at a price point much lower than comparable lines
    -As a subset of the not americana point: non-work/streetwear silhouettes that are properly masculine while still being fairly dark. (http://supertalk.superfuture.com/sho...&postcount=117)
    -Outerwear is absurd, fabric sourcing, cut, and detailing, all spot on. Geller outerwear is the second coming of Cloak.

    It's hard to get excited about American designers lord knows I love BoO and Tim Hamilton, but I have to be honest about their being boring as hell. Geller is very fresh, reasonable, and the clothing (especially shirts and jackets) is very nicely cut. Maybe the best fitting shirts I've ever found.



    Regarding the "geller is the new hot shit" comment, of course I'm pleased that he's becoming popular, and I hope that his collections will continue to be successful, but it was a nice feeling when I was the only person I knew who was into Geller.

    ^ I only hope his S/S 09 collection will be decent this time. S/S 08 was a big let down compared to the other stuff he's done.

    Have you actually seen it in store? The runway barely shows half the collection, and the stuff available to buyers is much much better. I wouldn't pick up any of that California skate stuff. Even after buying a few things from S/S I still have a list of "wants" from this season a mile long.
