    Yes. And at the end of the article I talk about how I have found the way to style it that suits me.

    Recent purchased a pair of Common Projects Chelsea Boots.







    I have also written a review of Common Projects Chelsea Boots. Thought it would be of interest to you guys.

    I've never been to London but I'd definitely check out Hostem/Hostem Archive/Blue Mountain School. They're sort of a store cum gallery cum museum. They are one of the few (maybe only) stockist for Amy Revier, whose textile work is closer to art than clothing. Other labels they stock include GBS, PR Patterson, and Casey Casey.

    It seems they also do periodic communal dinners and even have some accommodations for rent. The whole thing sounds very progressive, experimental, and thoughtful. I'd love to visit someday.

    I want to second Halibut's recommendation of Blue Mountain School. If you're looking for other stockists, I'd add Selfridge's, Harrod's, Layers London, Lab Store London, Browns, Liberty, Matches. Rick Owens has a shop in Mayfair. LN-CC also carries a lot of cool stuff, but I was never able to find the physical shop. Maybe you'll have better luck.

    Beyond shopping, the Christian Dior show at the V&A is spectacular. You must book tickets in advance, as it sells out every day. Also, I loved the Emma Kunz show at the Serpentine Gallery. It's in Hyde Park and is free, though closed on Mondays.

    I found last year a few Rick Owens-things in the 'Dover Street Market'-Store, don't know if they still have this Brand stocked. Beside of that, what a lovely shop, friendly and helpful staff and probably the most interesting selection of Comme des Garcons-Products i'm aware of in the UK. And the 'Rosemary's bakery' in the top floor is a nice spot with lovely cakes.
    ;p

    Bought BBS murex purple J3 (same as the brown one shown here) and then the purple bambas from AW18 and love both items. The jacket is my favorite of his yet. So much of a gradient in the palette and really happy with it.

    Insane how much of a deal it was on both with the sale....

    Really happy with all those NY store pieces that just wound up on Grailed? https://www.grailed.com/listings/982...sive-Oil-Brown

    That's the benefit of living in NYC. I just walked over and got mine before someone posted on Grailed. Mine was $1500 for the J3 yay.... haha. These people who think they're gonna sell for $4000 on Grailed are delusional. There's a beautiful red leather I'd buy for $1500-$2000 but it's up for like $8000 on there. LOL. Silly but fair game. Can't hate the player, but no one says we have to buy from them. Just sad to think great clothing is sitting in some person's closet not getting worn waiting to get bought when it never will. BBSNY had it all up online so anyone could have bought for like 60-70% off if they just logged into the website.

    I'm not sure about DSML, but the NY store had a small selection of Rick stuff when I stopped in a few months ago. Not sure if there's anything else in the DSM orbit that's on my radar currently, but I might pop into the London store for fun if it's not far out of the way.

    @halibut, jurrasicsnark-

    thank you both for the recs! hostem in particular sounds right up my alley, definitely going to check that out. advance tickets to the dior exhibit are already sold out, but it seems they do offer a small number in person every morning so i might try my luck there.

    So far in 2019:

    01 Harris Wharf • Oversized black spring/summer coat made from heavy jersey with slightly roughened up edges. Unfortunately, I can’t find an image online.


    02 Drkshdw • Waxed Detroit Jeans




    03 Rick Owens Astaires (new wool) with stripes (silk) – had a tailor reduce the drop in the crotch though.




    04 Drkshdw • Sock sneakers (ordered these an hour ago) – the smooth cotton version, not the denim one from the image:




    05 Prada Cloud Bust La Sportiva • Katana boulder shoes

    Just picked up this RO Tubeway coat. From SS17, for a good price. Its way too warm here now. Even for a fit pic.

    Congrats! One of the most underrated RO pieces. I've been wanting one for a couple of years now - can never find it at a good price in my size and in the wool fabrication. Amazing styling on that pic (facepalm...)
