    I live in Beijing China and happen to know one of the most experienced cobblers here in town, but I guess that wouldn't help you much. So far the vibrammed bambas have worked perfectky fine for me, no sole issue ever occurred. The original sole has little resilience and is rigid af in the first place (which I like) so I wouldn't worry too much just to add yet another softer rubber layer to it. Of course it can't bend like asics running shoes.

    Any cobbler can do it, they usually just adding rubber sole and sand down the edges to perfectly fit the shoe silhouette.

    Default Outdoor Jacket

    Hello everyone! I'm pretty new here, so sorry if this question isn't posted on the right thread.. I'm about to purchased an Outdoor Jacket from AW17 and got several questions. First, is it warm enough for winter? Considering that i'm 186cm for 75kg and i'm not built as Rick Owens aha, i'll take it size L in order to wear ninjas or others hoodies under. What do you think about going size up? I also saw that there's different codes for the pretty same jacket. Future mine is F1601K but i saw another one in F1508K. What's the differences between these two?

    As for sizing ->
    I'm 187cm x 77kg, usually a 50/L and (if I want a fitted look) a 48/M on Boris, Rick, ecc...
    I bought Parka1 (winter) in size M and a Zipper3 in size M.
    I'll not size up on myself: a size XL will be way too large on me.

    Those are fabric codes, different fabrics of different composition and treatment, read the composition info but even the same fabric by the same code may vary and entail different treatments from season to season.

    My P13s button wore out and snapped the cord that holds all of the buttons. What do people here do for repairs? Does BBS do repairs? Do they send replacement parts?

    If you in US,you could ask BBSNY if they could repair it by replace new cord, but if your location not in US, i see your words not meet the logic because simply the cost of shipping to them and receiving it back may be higher than your BBS denim price as brand new

    Thanks for the quick response. I’ll reach out to BBSNY.

    Edit: Getting a 522. Is that store still around?

    The BBSNY store went out of business several months ago.

    My cord snapped too. I took the cord from a BBS garment bag to replace mine. Worked out perfectly! The only difficult part was threading the new cord through the steel buttons. I chose to use the bag cord because its basically the same cord used for the buttons. dm me for more thorough instructions.

    I wonder what happened to the human statue that was in the store?

    Ah yeah, just saw that. Wasnt even aware he was showing something in Barcelona.
    Did someone went to his FW20 showroom in Paris? Because if you didn't, it definitely explain why he's only showing old stuff and not his "new" FW20 collection.
    For the past few seasons, it looked like new ideas have dried up seriously. But the last one didnt offer anything except a new (beautiful though) shade of dark blue. Absolutely nothing new.
    Buyers warned me not to go. Well they were right...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but at some point in the show it seemed to transition from the retrospective into a few looks from the FW20 collection.

    it was ok

    there were plenty of deep blues, could be good to have in a normcore fit kind of thing, where your clothes are highly artisanal but the archetype is a classic silhouette, think moto, white tee, blue jeans and boots.

    The only new stuff I noticed if noticeable at all was a pair of boots and the one-shoulder vest, which was introduced 2 years ago but was nonetheless hightlighted in the fw20 showroom as "new". So there's no exaggeration on the retro part.

    Personally I don't mind slow self-evolution, as is the case with most designers in the artisanal camp. It's perfectly acceptable for me if the team took a 2 year vacation and just to relax themselves and then came back with some not-so-revolutionary ideas for their designs. I'd still buy bunch of them and look the same in their clothes day in day out. I mean I'm a bit too old for you know, off-white and Balenciaga's new ideas... I still believe in a lot more potential in the brand, slow meaning just that it has reached certain level of maturity and perfection. Take filmmakers or novelists, who don't have to submit to the rule of putting out a new work every 6 months that has to please the audience, or else out of the game.

    On a side note, I'm gradually amazed recently to find how many Chinese stores started carrying BBS in the past 1 year or 2. I can easily name 20 of them who mostly operate business via Taobao and WeChat, yet lacking international online presence. But shit there are an awful lot of them these days. I bet the idea of the "rainbow" color-way collection of the Salomon shoe exhibited in Leclaireur was suggested by some Chinese buyer. Hope my fellow Chinese kids' buying strength helps!

    13we2, I imagine a lot of those storefronts are selling fakes.
