Re: Overexposure of Streetwear and the Principle of Rarity

Neither of those brands were ever founded on exclusivity - they can grow as much as they want, but their vision of authenticity is tied into the actual product. As long as they keep making relatively functional outdoor gear, they're 'authentic'. Plus, they're not working in a market that really valu...

Re: Random Rhetorical Hypebeast Fashion Thoughts

I'm not sure that s2w8 makes sense beyond their tote bags and tees. I'm a big fan, but I don't think their outerwear, for example, is ever going to be easy to find.

Of course, I just ordered a Article. No.9 tote, so I'm certainly encouraging it.

Re: trend forecasting is flaxy

Fleet Ilya has been doing stuff that hits a bit further on the BDSM side of the spectrum for a while - clutch bags with leather frames , corsets (and collars) , this - but also blindfolds and cuffs , saddles , and what are pretty clearly fetish masks . Plus, they brand themselves a bit differently. ...

Re: Wat-er polaver

The second you make it big enough to be useful, I bet it'll be too heavy to use - especially just on one arm.

This is still a bit more 'festival' style, as it were, but here are a few tumblrs that are kind of adjacent to this: rock hammer hard on http://67.media.tumblr.com/92350a0c8b880451ec3675a8cfa09184/tumblr_nsd8c64FbZ1qzdeofo1_1280.jpg go climb a rock http://67.media.tumblr.com/125bcb8098c66ae2605cf418...

Re: The Wanderset

I think that makes sense - with some brands like Manastash, you can draw a pretty straight line from their being an actual outdoor brand to being a 'festival' brand (a good term!), while most of the others I posted are trying to recapture that in a over-the-top way. Wild Things probably straddles th...

Re: The Wanderset

Some more hippie/hiking brands, closer to Manastash than the others above - all of whom, more or less, make things like bush & climbing pants, 'outdoor' hats, fleece everything, and the like. Phatee http://i1.wp.com/www.phatshop.jp/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/d1.jpg?resize=1000%2C531 Gowest/Gohem...

Re: tote bags

my S2W8 tote that I've had for ~2 years now. pretty much ideal - enough space for a few days' clothes, if necessary, but also good for school/work stuff. 3 pockets, heavy weight canvas (18oz). http://i.imgur.com/bhPR0Gf.jpg http://i.imgur.com/BqPrnZk.jpg http://i.imgur.com/G3y40Zz.jpg

Re: random fashion thoughts

I think maybe one factor in that hypothetical t-shirt buying scenario is how you're able to evaluate quality? I know I'd be reluctant to buy a high-end t-shirt without being able to handle it in person. There's also the confounding factor of there being both high-quality $100 tees and $100 tees that...

Re: Engineered Garments

Speaking of somewhat crazy pieces, I just got an EG/GB leather bedford. The quality is great, as far as I can tell, and I think it fits pretty well? Definitely going to take a lot of experimentation over the course of the fall to figure out how to wear it. A bad photo below. http://i.imgur.com/m5avS...
