    Could we get some more pictures of the actual work of the man in this thread? Textures, materials, close-ups, details... From what I've seen this far I really like his work but good pictures are rare.

    Yep what SNAFU said is true!
    He would only deal with REI personally! And it most def will be in DSM next season.

    There is another funny little story about a store approaching him,but i will leave that for now.
    Although the outcome was bloody hilarious! A true eccentric character to say the leats.

    tough label to get, heard crazy stories as well. ph are more exclusive than ccp.

    As eccentricity goes, I don't think he's eccentric. Far from it. It's very likely more to do with how little regard he has for the way the "industry" works its machinery, even at its most niche and marginal. I believe fundamentally he has a problem with representation: of how his vision and garments are being represented, especially in the way they're being contextualised historically, aesthetically, philosophically, effectually, and so on and so forth. It could be as simple as that. Pure speculation on my part of course.

The oft-repeated and cliched, maybe even tired, truism of "first-hand experience as the best form of experience", ie. handling garments in real-life, undoubtedly holds more truth for PH garments than any other celebrated in this forum.

    With all the posted photos, I can see why he doesn't want to sell via the internet.

    have to agree, even looking at the clothes across a room, doesn't really compare to touching and inspecting them.

    can't help but disagreeing on these dogmatic views on hardnen... of course his work is better IRL than in pics on the web, but can't we say the same with every single designer, and especially those that value research on materials? Think of Amadei, who doesn't seem to care about the retailing of his pieces on the web.

    todestrieb, i see what you mean, ph work needs a context to be seen properly. but consider that 1) it's the case for most of the designers again and 2) 99% of ph's clients won't espouse the intended context with buying a jacket, quite the contrary...

    to me ph's distrust and contempt over the web, and more generally over the modern world is a bit cliché, his designs don't need all this cheap bucolic mythology, they are truly original in their shape and feeling and deserve to be paired as well with more urban/edgy clothes for the achievement of nicely contrasted outfits.

    BTW, despite all his aside civilization ethos, harnden is sold at the most civilized shops worldwide... and no one seems shocked to see PH sold with CCP, MA+ and other 'artisanal' top $$$ brands.
