    I went to Atelier yesterday to check out the jeans (and other things). They are extremely long - I don't know how a person under 6ft could pull it off without major tailoring. Also, because they are quite volumnous, you'd have to be really lanky, I imagine. They had this black deer leather jacket (it's in the new slideshow) with white stitching, goddamn, it was beautiful. Poell is a real master.



    I also so Amadei bags - they were very nice - I liked the harmonica effect. The hardware is actually antiqued silver. I was scared to ask about the prices, brrrr....



    BTW, Label Under Construction coming to Atelier next season.

    Yep, that's the one. $5k,wow. My estimate was $4k. Well, I'm sure
    Jude will pick one up. Amadei bag is also in that picture.

    good to know that Joyce is carrying some CCP in HK. I will be there in Nov. hopefully I will be able to go and see what they have. Don't think I will be getting anything with the crazy price tag.

    actually probably in between. i remember his last season leather shirt/jackets being 480,000 yen. then again those are japanese prices too, may be marked up.

    European leather prices are slightly better, but not by much from what I can remember...

    Am i the only one here who finds that leather jacket a little creepy?.........a little Buffalo Bill/Leatherface? It's very shaped to the body, and those stiches look so hand-done.... There's something about it gives me the heeby-jeebies.

    yeah, but i like it :) i think the mummified lamb leather was much creepier... since it looked like it could be dried human skin.

    4...5K?! i had a hard time deciding on the twist jeans. thats like buying a reallyold honda civic [:D]



    cant deny that its a great looking jacket. the stitching looks beautiful in white. looks great on the model but to be honest i think it would be hard to pull off. which is why i hate models....everything looks good on them.



    maxfields has the gaunlet glovesand areversible leather jacket. they are so rude on the phone. its irritating!

    bella, do you happen to have a camera? i would really like to see the twist jeans worn by someone!



    yeah, that's why i never call maxfields and i didn't even have a chance to go to the store since they were closed the day i drove out to see it =\

    I'm sure nobody minds, especially considering there are many Poell fans posting here. By the way there's a section for classified, feel free to post info about the item there, you might sell it outside ebay and save up on related costs.

    Man, I don't mean to bust your balls, but time after time I have come across you selling high-ticket items days or weeks after you bought them at Atelier and such, and there is always a story behind it. Why are you so fickle? Would it not save you a lot of emotional anguish and overall hassle to just not buy the things you cannot afford? Why not simply appreciate them without having to buy them? We all want things we cannot afford - I understand that, but why go through with these purchases if you have to let them go and lose money on them? I am asking in good faith, not trying to be mean. Anyway, I hope it works out for you, and feel free to post the jeans in the classifieds - maybe someone will help you out.

    I feel your pain bella. I had the same exact jeans but returned them for credit towards another item. Your listing is very tempting.

    reply appreciated faust. it really isnt a financial situation when it comes to selling them. i purchase items that i love, appreciate, and sometimes as an impulse. i have alot of ccp items and i sell items that i dont necessary need. i love each and everyone one of my ccp items and sometimes find that i have a surplus of them. for instance, if i havent worn an item for a long time and find that i do not necessarily need it in my wardrobe or have to sell it for personal reasons than i am willing to sell the item. same goes for newly bought ones as well. if i have items that i have outgrown in regards to appreciation andwillingness to havewhether it being a day or a month i will sell them. i really dont see whats wrong. people buy things all the time and return them for reasons only fit to themselves. i bought these jeans because i really liked them the first time i saw and tried them on. i still love them. i just dont seem it necessary to keep them when i can sell them to add to my sisters wedding present. i have enough money but why not sell them if i want. you only get married once and whats worth more... making your sister happy on the happiest of days or wearing these jeans for my own sake. i can sell alot more ccp items if i wantbut i do not want to. i want to sell these. its not about gaining or losing money. i purchase ccpitems for the love and creation of them. i can sacrifice my happiness for my sisters or any other reason i see fit. i dont know why i am really explaining myself to you. its no concern of yours but i did feel that you came on a little strong. i do not want to come off asan absolutearrogant and smugbrat. i am only a college student and work hard for everything that i have. i hope that i did not come off as a person whois over jealous and boastful, i am simply explaining. i am sorry for this very long reply and for numerous systematic spelling errors. it is very late.

    It's not a problem, really. I was just wondering what it was. Sorry if it came off as an insult. Peace.

    Yeah, I opted out of getting the jeans at A... one of the reasons being the price tag. I mean, I can get almost two laptops for that price these days! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the way they look, I'm just balking at the price.




    Bellapietra, I sent you an e-mail via ebay inquiring about the exact measurements (especially the waist) as i'm not completely familiar with CCP clothing. I may pop a bid in for your jeans.... this will require me to liberate my closet of some other clothes. I'm trying to operate on a one in one out policy.





    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Man, don't you sometimes wish you had all the money in the world to spend on some of these pieces?





    .... or at least have CCP go on sale? hahaha



    If I could have that jacket, the twist jeans, and a few more ccp pieces (I do regret not getting the dress shirts with the wires in it). I'd be a happy (and stylish!) man!
