    I think a critique of his work is a separate point - regardless of his output, if he's supporting UK manufacturing in areas that have historically suffered from the effects of outsourcing, he should be praised. Hopefully others would then follow.

      Just been reading through all the anger regarding price hikes etc... i use to live in Brighton 9 years ago and use to see him about all the time.. had a couple of drunken conversations in the Evening Star (his drinking hole)... plus had a friend that worked for him.. and as u all know already, he is a pot smoking, paranoid, anti-fashion nut-job... and i have watched his fame grow over the years since i lived there ... for better and for worse... but i generally think he has hiked prices to somehow alienate and make his clothes more unattainable.. or probably to just be an arse..

        Here is the funny thing - IF boutique kept prices the same this season, so maybe I jumped the gun a bit and it's L'Eclaireur that's to blame? It would make sense since they've become world-famous for flinging Harnden.

            Special ordering a classic in wool/linen SS16 from IF and was quoted "around $2,900" depending on the exchange rate. So I guess they're not impervious.

                You are correct in this case! Just to make sure I am clear, you are talking about FW 14 vs FW 15 deliveries at IF vs L'Elaireur?? I recall in 2014 the GBP vs USD was quite high and in 2015 the GDP vs USD dropped about 15% in favor of USD, around the time that IF Boutique would be paying the remainder of their FW 15 deliveries. What this means for IF Boutique is that the goods in FW 15 would cost them 15% less in currency exchange vs the prior FW 14. They would have no issues keeping the prices the same because they are making a higher profit margin since the goods are costing them less.

                Where you speculated is correct. If you look at the GBP vs Euro in the same time frame FW 14 vs FW 15 deliveries there was the opposite effect where the Euro went down against the GBP. This means that a store like L'Eclaireur would be paying an extra 15% to 17% on their goods resulting in a increase in price for them at retail. To give a example a PH jacket 400.00GBP at cost would retail $1900 EURO in FW 14, same jacket at same cost would be $2195 EURO for FW 15. These are just estimates, I am not sure what shipping/import duties would be from Uk to France.

                    Right, this could be the case. I forgot that the old scrooge charges in pounds.

                      Currencies are a funny thing in the fashion business and how they affect retail prices. It can be quite frustrating or beneficial, its like playing the lottery sometimes. What's going to be interesting if/when the currencies level out is if the prices go down again. But I doubt that, once a retailer can sell brands at a higher price they tend not to reduce them back.

                      For PH he deals in one currency so the retailers don't have any options. The benefit is to have a option, many brands in market will offer multiple currencies to retailers either EURO and USD. The Japanese are great at that, always options.

                        Just received my 60% linen/40% wool classic from IF.

                        I took a large in the last two season's AW classic and the fit was perfect. The large for SS16 is running very snug, just an FYI.

                          These questions should go in the sizing thread. This thread is for discussing the work.

                            Sorry about that. Will do for next time.

                              @tabularasa I just recently acquired my first PH piece at IF. Usually his clothing runs too big for me but this season fits a size small. I think it may have been the one you are speaking of.
