    Thank you guys for the compliments, guys! DDOH, I am not sure - I know they are dyed with indigo (must tell my wife not to wash them with other clothes) - I'll tell you the exact color once I get them (today, hopefully).



    Laika, the top looks really lovely - would be nice to see how it looks in real life. Nice to see you back!

    faust, they're dyed with synthetic indigo then overdyed with japanese ink (suminando) - when they fade you'll see the indigo undertones amongst the white fibers. really nice.

    Sounds cool. One day maybe I'll read the entire SuperFuture denim section... although that will probably require me to quit my job for half a year. [:)]



    Laika, congratulations on the move!!! I'm glad everything worked out. And what a nice boyfriend you have!

    Just got the jeans - damn, they are sweet. Can't wait to get home and try them on. I thought they'd be harder, but they are very soft!

    yeah 45rpm's are one washed and are softer than most of the other japanese denim brands.



    i just got a pair of the "stiff-like-cardboard, will-stand-up-on-their-own" variety

    So, I did not like the way the jeans fit [:(] . As much as I love the denim, up on classifieds (here and on SF) they go.

    That's a shame about the jeans, Faust.



    Some real pics of the Margiela top, as promised. Not the best pics, but my camera is absolute crap. Sorry for the jeans--I won't be wearing it like this, but it was the best way to get the details to show up in the pic. Sorry also for cutting off my legs!



    This is two of the ways the top can be worn--I'm still playing with it.





    I'll post better ones in the WAYWT thread soon...

    Awesome, laika! I like it with the jeans, too!



    So, I decided to go to Uniqlo yesterday - I figured a field report is due, especially after I blogged about people mobbing the place. So, it wasn't a bad experience. I think it's better than H&M and such, although there is obviously a lot of shit there. It's good for casual office wear and for filler stuff. I bought a pair of cordurory jeans and a pair of moleskin jeans, which is as far as I can stretch the business casual look.

    Couldn't you just have gone to the store in Soho to try them on before ordering?

    I returned a few items but found that the outerwear isn't really bad at all. I kept a nylon puffer jacket which was perfectly styled (no logos, no excessive padding, nice fit) which cost a mere $50, and gave the single-breasted black trench to a friend because it looked good on him but the Medium was too large for me to wear without an underlying layer. Overall, for the money, it isn't bad for basics. And better quality than H&M for some things for sure. Some of the fashion items had great construction details, I must say.

    I guess I should've. SF = superfuture.com = denim heaven (and hell).

    Not a fashion purchase, but I just bought a Playstation 3 from my local Target. Don't even ask me how long I waited outside for it... [:$]

    Got an APC black tuxedo-style shirt with pintucks instead of pleats at Camouflage... really simple, sharp, and ironically, I didn't see this style at APC in the past dozen or so times I've been to the store. Also, there's an APC puffer vest in cotton that I've never seen. Weird.

    No wonder you haven't been posting for the past TWO WEEKS! [:P] . Now sell it on Ebay for $3.5k and buy yourself a Carpe Diem leather shirt.

    Neither of them are, as I wanted to get pics from there to post here. I can only take a pic of the shirt but not the vest. Which one did you mean?

    It's really just very simple, but the cotton is great, the pintucks give the front a nice amount of body, the collar is on the small side so it's a bit trendy, and I like the detail of the button placement at the throat - it allows for the shirt to remain quite closed and to drape properly. And it's a very nice fit - I'm a 46, but I had to get a size 2 / Medium. It'll be a nice easy shirt for the office.

    I love it Bakla. It is just the thing for me to wear to work too. I think I'll have to ask a friend in Paris to hunt it down for me.

    Shame about the jeans, faust. Were they just not cut to your liking?
    Haha always expanding the definition business casual! Wish I could. What were the prices like at Uniqlo? I'm wondering if there's any markup there in the US (e.g. ~7000 yen for a cashmere jumper in Japan) I find it's great for basics. Last time I was in HK I bought a whole heap of tees and tanks to wear for working out..

    Laika that is an great dress.



    Bakla I like the pintucks. That reminds me I need to get some business shirts..

    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.
