    Agreed.

    I also know there will come a day when level-headed and laid-back Chant will get angry :-)

    Speaking of duels, just read a funny joke (hope it does not lose in translation).

    One duelist asks another,

    "What shall you choose - pistol or rapier?"
    "The rapier."
    "Then I shall take the pistol."

    Don't try to broad my vocabulary too fast : I'm still a beginner.

    Btw the DD Paris store is taking international orders : send all inquiries to Frol (frol@damirdoma.com) and please say hello to him from my side.

    But if you want to pay 10% more, you can still use my Proxy service.

    I bought the ankle boots and I'm still bothered by the pull at the back. Besides that it does become a hazard especially walking along 34th St in Midtown and hoping nobody step on the damn thing.

    These boots are not meant to be worn, but admired. Your fault.

    Actually, there's no anti-theft system at the Paris store, so this is the only idea Damir had. Frol, the SA, has been trained to step on the pull just before the thief could rush out the store.
    De rien.

    Just wanted to add my pictures to the fold...





    Will probably sell these as soon as i get off my lazy ass and start a sale thread. They are too narrow for me.

    Truer words have never been spoken. Lord knows how many Ann Dem bargains I've gotten because I knew what they were and others did not.

    Just dropped and the black and white tees are already gone! I can't tell the difference between the two pairs of 100% cotton double layer shorts(one version is sold out). The version still available says "textured cotton" and is $55 less.

    Alot of people are starting to carry DD this season it seems

    Spent again 2.30 hours in the shop yesterday trying each and everything with Mail-Moth, and I'm going more an more deeply into the understanding/feeling of his work, which is very interesting and subtle. Fabric's choices are very nice too.
    Will post some pictures and feedback soon.

    It's no more blind love, but deep attachment - as often in a couple .
    The more I look at/try on his clothes, the more I understand the meaning of what he's doing, and the very consistency of his grammar. And I've seen beautifull pieces from SS 09 that nobody has seen yet, I don't know why.

    i think that if you submit to the entire look - octopus scarf down to the cork sole shoes all at once - the result is interesting enough but as individual components this collection just doesn't work for me.

    Disagree. Each piece is self sufficient, with a lot a details (sometimes too many ) and has always a very interesting and, I'd say, clever cut. And every piece is versatile and easily mixable - you don't need to wear DD from head to toe.

    Faust, you'll jump to the ceiling (direct translation from French : sauter au plafond = be shocked), but some pieces remind me a sort of Ann's work (asymetrical cut - vertically : the lapels - and horizontaly - the pockets and the tails -, curved anatomical cut, layered lapels, etc.).




    And with this jacket, you can see that Damir is not only an unformal clothes designer, but that he likes as well to cut an almost formal, very well fitted jacket.
