    Wow, david, pretty glad to see that jacket like this. Would not have known it had pleats at the back like that. Looks really cool I think.

    I completely missed seeing both the opening and closing ceremonies live which was pretty disappointing, but hopefully I can catch up on YouTube. Great to hear that Madness performed anyway even if they were not in Yohji :).

    shah that's pretty weird with justoneeye. I hope they put it back up for FW12. Have they started putting up their current season buys yet? Over on SZ I saw people complaining that the Barney's drop was just a more boring version of the Atelier drop which is disappointing. I will try and get the Maxfield's drop and post it on here if I can get them to send me pictures this season. Apparently they didn't pick up much last season but they told me they would be getting some stuff in this season. Will see.

    Oh yeah, Guy Burgess, you need to go into Eastern Market and do some recon, it is all for the greater good and at least, even if you can't pick up anything now, you will be able to later I am sure, so good to know what to keep an eye out for eh? :devil:

    the shah, I am almost positive justoneeye is keeping yohji. I was there recently and they said they like yohji a lot and he's one of their best men's designers (in terms of sales, obviously he's their best in terms of design...).

    The only thing funky about justoneeye is that yohji has required them to keep the line as an online brand only--no in-store purchases.
    I was at maxfield's recently and they had no yohji yet. They had recently received some cdg, which was a better offering than barneys, so most likely the yohji offering will to be better than barneys.

    Hmm, that's interesting that YY insisted that it be online-only. Most companies seem to want to keep their stuff offline. Good to hear that Yohji is doing well for them anyway.

    As for Maxfield's I actually really enjoyed the two times I was able to go to the store. The staff is interested in the clothing they stock and they tend to have really cool buys as well.

    Disagree. Just seems like someone with an interest in fashion buying clothes that he likes....

    Yeah the photography makes it seem a bit...fake, and the tumblr format is inherently fad-ish, but it still looks good, and I think it's a bit harsh to jump on someone's motive based on their tumblr and what brands they're wearing.
