>>8654603 Thank you, also >this passes for discussion on /fa/ right now
I've never handled Stephan Schneider before so I can't comment on the quality of the tailoring but I assume that's the major draw? The designs don't seem particularly interesting and it really wouldn't fit with my current aesthetic. Then again I'm only really looking at what online retailers actually stock and not the collections as he's presented them, so almost any designer can be made uninteresting by a tentative buyer. I'll look into him a little more. Why should I wear Stephan Schneider, OP?
>>8654681 Well, the tailoring/level of finition is one aspect of Schneider that's great, but the true draw for Schneider is his textiles. I could take some pictures of some of mine to illustrate this, but he develops all his textiles in-house and has then has them done by a bigger textile company, and all his proprietary fabrcis are simply breath-taking - textured cotton twills that feel like wool, beautiful chainmail-esque knitwear, one of the most interesting linen blends I've ever handled. Honestly, I can't think of anyone else who uses better textiles, even Yamamoto Also his stuff is extremely affordable considering it's all made in belgium, his shirting is rarely over $300 and his trousers mostly fall below $400, even his heavyweight winter coats (like this season's Algae, pic related) is around $1000 - if you tried to get outerwear like that from a larger European or Japanese house, it'd be nearly impossible Also I find his designs to be quite interesting >>8654722 AW11, style name is "Merino" They come up for sale every now and then >>8654725 How so?
>>8655383 It honestly is, and I love Yamamoto, own a few pieces myself, and despite the level Yamamoto's textiles are at, Schneider's fabrics are honestly unrivaled in terms of his depth and breadth of experimentation Also his stuff is obviously cut a little less full than Yamamoto, which is why I prefer him In a lot of ways, Schneider takes the parts I like most about Yamamoto and even improves on them, he's honestly everything I want out of clothing
>>8655438 Because of cost and in turn profit margins, also, I think it is largely a matter of the designer's origins and training.
Some designers can't cut a pattern to save themselves whereas other designers have been heavily involved in the actual construction of garments their whole lives.
Those designers tend to be interested in the materials first and foremost and the design and runway looks come into play after that, whereas other designers have a vision in their head and want to transplant it into reality, and will use whatever material best serves creating that vision.
Pic unrelated I was going to include a cheap shot at raf somewhere and then forgot about it
>>8655433 No, I haven't, what boutique does a full buy, other than the actual flagships? I've never tried on an entire Schneider collection either But I'm still adamant that, in my personal experience, from all the Yohji and Schneider I've owned and tried on, Schneider's textiles are better than Yohji's >>8655446 Owens has some good and interesting textiles >>8655479 Fair enough, but he's German
