That housing estate looks amazing. Is it fully gentrified out and filled with Our Legacy wearing Architect archetypes?

big fan of the bomber and the shorts (if they're actually as short as they look), poncho is also really neat

My grailed wardrobe is basically all of the HL outerwear on grailed right now, so this is very cool. In the market for a new zip-up hoodie type item after irreversibly trashing my gap zip.

Could it be?

After so many had lost hope?

A collab??!?!?

Oh it's just... sweats.

Cool I guess. Wonder how it'll compare with H&M x Alex Wang

i like the kangaroo pocket sweatskirt but other than that this is pretty much all forgettable.

if you need a hoodie for $40 you could do a lot worse than a couple of those tho

Muji Labo stuff we saw yesterday was pretty great. No idea why they don't stock it more widely or have a functional website?

it's an interesting question, i mean everyone in fashion/art rips off everyone else- that's what flintstone is, right? but it's only distasteful (to me and, i presume, others here) when a big conglomerate lifts from a small(er) independent. you can't escape from that question of power.
recent examples off the top of my head: karl lagerfeld/ new balance, marina abramovic/mary carroll

even if h&m has a nice design the shirt material is usually so scratchy (maybe i'm overly sensitive?) that it still isn't worth it to me, in past experience

also i'm not really a fan of that collar at all

some items from +j are coming back apparently?

i'll probably wait for the stuff to hit stores first to compare the quality to the +j stuff i have

Now I have a reason to go to the opening of the Philly store. I'll probably just buy a white slim fit shirt because I need one and I'm on a semi cop freeze, but I'm digging all that outerwear, particularly the vest. The suiting is neat too, and I like the turtleneck.

We're getting it a week early in Philly, I may try to snap a few pics of the stuff I try on, maybe including the Helmut Lang sweats.

I'll certainly pick up the vest, but I get the impression the rest will be too tailored for my body type/style. How much slimmer everything than normal qlo?

uniqlo cuts have slimmed up so much in the last few years you can probably wear your normal size

Stopped by H&M yesterday in a desperate search to get quick fix of casual pants while I get my cash game up, and was reminded why I hate the store -
BUT - I did find these suprisingly tacticool cargoes that I would totally recommend! Actually really neat stuff for a super affordable $30. Styled with Uniqlo flannel for fast fashion synergy

idk i guess if i needed some smart stuff i'd maybe cop but i find it difficult to get excited about cardigans, button down shirts and chester coats. i've never handled the stuff though... is the quality really good?

the vest is cool i guess.
