On the one hand, this is boring. On the other hand, the previous iteration had some interesting stuff but was niche enough that it wasn't really selling like gangbusters, so I guess you gotta make concessions. It probably feels nice but seems to be cut slim enough that I'll never fit my hamhocks anywhere near those pants. Anyway, I'll go back to ignoring this.

agreed overall. i'd be curious to see what a suit might look like sized up 1 (the fit model is apparently 6'1" and wearing size M for both jacket and trouser), and like i said in my initial rep comment it seems to be more of a textile focused project (so far? may be playing it safe, or maybe the lack of abasi's involvement is the deciding factor re: simpler patterns, who knows).
also seems to be targeted towards a techbro type, or something?
i'd be curious to hear more from a hands-on perspective, but i won't be buying any of it myself.

I feel like the blazer might be ok. Kind of like Uniqlo Jersey for people who don't want to buy from companies that exploit forced labour.

Could do with more info about the fabric though if they're going to go on about it like that.

I'm obviously not going to go near buying it.

will that phase of millennial fashion right before slim fit jeans come back? like when dudes wore lowrise bootcut jeans that were really slim through the thigh with slimfit tshirts and plaids and also sometimes a scarf?

My mum took my UC leather jacket to a drycleaner without me knowing and it shrunk I think. I can barely zip it up now.

Is it possible to stretch it out?

Leather can generally be stretched, yes, but there's also obviously a limit.

All I wear are APCs and Common Projects which exactly what I always wanted back in 2010. Took me long enough to get here, but we're finally happy

this is extremely familiar territory...

but also, i've been wearing lowrise slim thigh jeans (junya) with slightly shorter (depends) boxier tees and it's fun, i think it's a way to go back to that vibe without feeling like i've thrown myself into a time machine. other times i'm open to patterned buttondowns (still usually junya? or some thrifted bits).
(in other words, basically just junya or something)

now if only it was easier to find a fuller length bootcut fit from junya, instead of the inseam flare that seems prevalent among the bits i own

@julio been wearing the Jean Standard. Really nice straight let, room in the top block and solid length. I think APC's best cut tbh

every year on my birthday i tell myself i'm going to get myself a leather jacket, but because it's in september the colder weather rolls around and i lose my taste for them once i see how many people are wearing them in NYC. it's a weird cognitive dissonance but it feels like every fashion-conscious person in new york independently decides on the black leather double-rider biker jacket as the archetypal symbol of "cool" and oversaturates the look until it gives the opposite effect. i really try to avoid the "it's common therefore it's uncool" mentality and think that the biker jacket can look really good with the right wear and vintage fit but going into soho and seeing everyone in brand new-looking leathers from allsaints or aritzia or whatever really makes me want to swear off the look no matter how perfectly i could pull it off

that said, i still love the look of a leather jacket and i think maybe a more simple work jacket-style look (regular collar, center zip, slim fit, cropped cut, slash pockets) might be best. if anyone has any recommendations for nice black leathers similar to the lewis leathers corsair i'd love the input

I'm back in Sydney after being away for a few years and truly 90% of people here dress in exactly the same way they did in 2010.
