What makes pieces by Rick Owens and Visvim so expensive? And what makes it so special that a lot of people actually buy it? I've been wondering for a while now. I mean, their stuff is nice but what justifies the price tag? Quality goes up when changing from cheap brands to expensive brands, but I can't imagine quality going up that much more when changing from expensive brands (Acne, Our Legacy, Engineered Garments) to super expensive brands like RO, Visvim, Saint Laurent.

Not trying to be a dick or anything, just asking because I'm genuinely curious.

Can anyone suggest very slim chinos without a crazy long inseam? Some of the best slim fitting ones I've ever found were the Norse Project Arknell chinos and I haven't really found anything equivalent since.

What do you guys do when the suede gets all rugged.

How do you make it smooth again?

Most of my suede shoes are getting long "hairs" or just getting rough.

What to do?

 

thanks in advance.

Does anyone have any experience with lad musician blazers? I've been eyeing some of the single button ones and I was wondering how the sizing works. I usually take a 34/44 in blazers but I know lad's sizing can be kinda weird.

I'm a pretty true 36 and I fit well in the 44, but I've seen some 44s on the second-hand market that would be too tiny.  I could probably have gotten in a 46 without it looking odd too (besides the long sleeves).

I've tried on Lad Musician blazers from pretty much every single season since fall '09 and can say the sizing is incredibly consistent across many variations in shape and style. Some outliers do exist (think the drop shoulder ones from a season or two ago) but those are deliberate in design and easy to spot.

 

Lad 42 = small, boxy 44

 

The shoulders are somewhat wide with respect to size. I would not compare with the narrow shouldered, glove-like tailoring typical of Dior Homme and Saint Laurent. 

 

The combination of high armholes and Lad Musician's choice of thin, soft suiting fabrics make for something that is meant to drape (read: looks bad if filled out like a Band of Outsiders or Thom Browne jacket). If you are not particularly flat chested or trim in the body, you may want to size up. I am a slim 44. Lad 42's fit well and feel slightly more forgiving (roomier) than the Juun.J 44's I wear, to give you a better idea of the fit. 

 

Hope this helps!

Looking information of the pants pictured below. What are they? All I know this far is that they might be DRKSHDW, but that's about all I know of them despite the frantic web search.
