    Some of you may be familiar with New York Magazine's hype cycle. Here's the SF version, and you fill in the boxes:

    Some of my own impressions:

    --------- Pre-Buzz: Structured shoulders
    --------------------- Buzz: Non-silk ties
    --------------------------------- Rave Reviews: Loud sport coats
    --------------------------------------------- Saturation Point: Knit ties
    --------------------------------------------------------- Overhyped: Longwings
    --------------------------------------------------------------------- Backlash: RL Black Label
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Backlash to the Backlash: mafoofan


    What's your hype curve?

    ugh i bought my rlbl when it was at rave reviews, so sad that its at backlash now. kinda want to sell it but know no one will buy it cuz its black. i think black is going to make a comeback soon though, and hopefully when it does itll comeback along with rlbl.

    I don't do hype- and I laugh at those that do.

    Saturation Point: Double breasted

    Actually, that should probably be "Overhyped," but there's still some time left. Spring 2010 menswear lines have still been showing DB in abundance.

    Pre buzz: Standard four fold ties

    Saturation point: patch pockets

    Backlash: Big tie knots, contrast collars, pick stitching

    Not sure if we're in the "backlash to the backlash" stage yet for some of those
