    based on quality - adam. based on creativity - neither. my opinion. casem will tell you otherwise, and he may be right. the important thing is what you think.

    i'm very familiar w adam's clothes, and the approach is utilitarian, everyday, baggy, huge arms, huge cuts. its hard for me to adjust to it after wearing ccp, but he's got some good pieces and the quality is super good, tempering the designs which are redux and not too clever. he's a straight ahead rough guy working man artist guy dude.



    if you're not a slim guy, you might find this stuff really suits you...

    One wonders where it will end, when everything has become gay.

    The quality is pretty good, but not good enough to justify the prices...and there isn't enough "design" there to justify the prices, either. The clothing that's unique - linen jumpsuits, etc... - no one carries. I tried e-mailing the website to find out how much this season's gray linen jumpsuit costs (I like jumpsuits, I don't know), but no one wrote me back.

    Margiela does some great leather bags from time to time. (specifically there were some from FW 07 that I liked)



    You'd probably have to find these on ebay or Yoox.

    Personally, I never got Kimmel's clothes. Ervell to me is more interesting design wise, but I still think he has to grow as a designer a bit more. Essentially this means that I don't think his clothes are worth the money. I have an Ervell jacket from 2 seasons ago and the quality is just okay. Maybe the current season is better, but I haven't checked it out enough.

    yeah, that's my problem with both of them-the quality. it seems both use okay fabrics but charge more than okay fabrics prices.
    i am really tempted to buy from both but the fabrics just arent worth it for the money. i've actually opted to not buy from either...still wanting
    something new this season to come along and blow me away, cause daddy wants to purchase, but lately most stuff is just blah from everybody-so it's back to buying more cologne i don't need and another bag or two.

    Kimmel needs to get his quality up to 45rpm level (or work with them for production). It seems like he's trying to work with the same niche as 45rpm, just with a different aesthetic. Way things are right now, though, I just don't get it.



    Also - Kimmel's fabrics are good, for what he's trying to do. The problem is that his construction is not good enough to make his stuff covetable or to justify the prices he's charging. If he's going to make a dinner jacket out of sweatshirt material, cut it correctly, give it bespoke-level detailing (at the level of what Thom Browne is doing), and then charge a semi-reasonable price for it, because the fabric cost him a couple of bucks. He's not doing that.

    If you can find them, Julius bags are really quite something... they show up on Yahoo pretty regularly. Expect to pay in the $400-700 range for them but they look really nice!

    Any fellow os x users tell me what browser I need to be using/ what I need to do to in order to:



    1. Copy images into body of email



    2. Create a hypertext link?



    I can do all of the above on PC but firefox/safari on OS X shut me down.
