    /\ Nice! I like the patchwork sleeves, although I'm not a big fan of s/s tshirt over a l/s tshirt look.





    I bought a camera, finally.

    love everything on this page....can't wait to see it in the WAYWT thread.



    I really adore those gloves, especially....

    I snagged this rayon Comme shirt on the bay. Should look good hanging out of some slacks.

    I bought gloves, too. Nothing crazy like Alberts. I gave up on the idea of buying expensive gloves, because mine last 1 season on the average. I got a pair at a local discount store, but they are nice, Italian made, black leather, lined with cashmere, and with a little tab with snaps to adjust how you want them to fit - all for a cool $40.

    Ah the CCP gloves were in the $500 range. The shearling ones were I think $20-30 less than the kangaroo leathers and the "frozen" gloves (only in size 46)are $650.



    As for sizes, I think they still have 46,48,50 for the shearling and now 46, 48 for the kangaroos since I bought the 50's. I think you can consider the 48's to be mediums (on the small side of medium). I ended up getting the 50's because the leather is kind of thin (but structured) and has a thin lining. I talked to JoJo and told him about how I planned on layering with some of those thin fingerless stretch-cotton gloves you can get on St. Mark's from those street peddlers. The 50's work perfectly both with them (snug!) and without (nicely spaced, not skin tight).



    Price-wise, they were definitely hefty. Very hefty, but I've been needing a pair of gloves for literally years now and kept putting it off, waiting for something timeless yet unique to come along and these were precisely it. I know that I'll be getting a lot of use out of these as the weather gets crisper. The girlfriend hates them too hahaha, says they freak her out! hahahahaha



    Now I'm on the hunt for:



    - CCP "frankenstein" patchwork fur lined gloves (did they make this in other colors aside from blue?)



    - CCP asymmetrical overlock jeans (no need for the twists, I'm off of that kick now haha) in raw denim



    - CCP overlock stitched leather jackets (without the $5k pricetag)



    - CCP overlock stitched blazers/dress shirts



    - CDiemmandarin collared blazer with extended sleeve linings (Bilzerian has these but... $1800 is too much)





    Happy tuesday everyone!

    Very narrow, indeed. The armholes are cut impossibly high.

    really? i'm a 48 and i fit a 48. sometimes i can even get into 46's in his blazers.





    and damn you for reminding me about missing out on those "frankenstein gloves" because of a stupid seller :(

    it perhaps depends on the particular jacket. certainly when i tried on a 48 from this summer's collection (with the yellow overlock stitching inside) it was very neat indeed. Faust is right about the armholes - very high and very narrow. The sleeves on that jacket were very severely tailored.HOw much do these things go for - Faust did you see anything nice in the Library?

    Not Faust but was at the Library recently; they had a couple of leather jackets (which means pretty much the most CCP leather you'll see at the same place) in camel (very cool)and black and one black "denim" jacket that was extremely structured. Blazers are cut slim but unless those I tried were off I'd advise against sizing up as his shoulders tend to be true to size on all garments I'veseen (seam placement on shirts/sweaters/leather jackets/blazers). The most misleading are, as you might expect, the leather jacket as they're designed to mold to your body and stretch a little over time which means you might be led to believe sizing up is a good idea. The coolest piece was IMHO a sweater with some sort of cables/wires inside that could be literally shaped to desired form. This is the only piece where I would size up as more drape gives you additional fabric to work with. Alas the smallest size they had was a 50 and I'd have taken a 48 or maybe 46(usual size=46). Oh and they had some boots left.

    I concur with Fuuma. We were at the Library about two weeks apart from each other. That sweater was great, wasn't it? The season before he did a dress shirt and a l/s top like that. I most loved the reversible pants, cotton jeans on one side, wool dress pants on the other side. $2k was a funny price to look at though.



    Johnny, I think you could get away without sizing up and settling for wear just one layer of fabric underneath (like a l/s tee or a dress shirt).

    Yeah I saw the other pieces with wire, I definitely think that when he made the sweater he made the leap from interesting/innovative idea to aesthetically pleasing, wearable piece. I personnally don't care too much about CCP prices as I like the concept/looking at the pieces and their make but aside from very few exceptions I'm not really interested in wearing/owning them and don't think they fit my wardrobe/style or compliment my look in any positive way.



    Some pieces I'd wear: the sweater w/wires, angled zip boots, hockeye boots. That's pretty much all I can think of. I think the gloves look like used leather gloves that were left in a cold car for too long, plus the joined fingers is gimmicky enough we'd laugh at it if it was from Dolce or hot topic. BTW since Chinorz mentionned he got them, no offense, you own some great pieces (including the aforementionned angled zip CCP boots) and if they work for you fine.

    No offense taken at all! I definitely understand there are individual tastes for designs/designers. I was having a discussion with Coldrice a couple days ago and talking about how I just didn't "get" Harnden clothes. I always found them (even after seeing the stuff in person at IF) to be very....amish/country.



    The lists of CCP stuff that people have seen at the Library makes me really really want to go. I can't believe I missed checking it out at the beginning of summer when I was in London! Grrr.



    I echo your sentiment Faust in regards to DH being dead (I barely read the msn forum anymore because it's just so ridiculous at this point), and few other designers putting out interesting pieces. I never really "got" Margiela either admittedly. Even after checking out his London boutique, the clothes just aren't mind-blowing.



    If I could only afford to buy tons and tons of Carpe, CCP and Demeulemeester hehehe. Ah well, I think the approach will be the same as it was for me when I got into DH. A couple pieces here and there, and just slowly build it up... waiting for good deals on good pieces.





    .....and waiting for sales timeat Atelier and IF!

    Completely agree with this. Those CCP leathers are beautiful things, but they would absolutely wear you, and not the other way around. Margiela is the way I think.....





    Actually my nexy purchase is likely to be a black cashmere and wool Kilgour overcoat for work. It too is really beautiful, but in a different way

    i agree for the most part, most of cpp's leathers are very costumey to the point where they wear the wearer. his short leather jackets this season (not the overlock one) looks very wearable as did the overlock bomber from a few seasons ago. i love ccp, but sometimes the things he makes are better to look at than to wear.



    cdiem on the other hand, i'd say you have to have the right personality/swagger to wear. even at lift the guy was telling me that this piece matched my personality well while another one didn't- and i think that's very true. i also find it amazing how much life there is in cdiem/lmaltieri pieces- they are pretty boring to look at on a computer screen - at least i think so - but they really have a unique aura about them in person but they really have to match up with the wearer.



    wow this thread got off track.. haha. these past few posts should be in the poell thread and the sizing thread!
