Lando, that was excellent reading.  From when I first encountered MF's designs around 3 years ago I always got the impression that whoever it was behind it (now I know it's Christophe Loiron) forged their own path.  That kind of sensibility appeals to me, much like IH's does.  Each approaches what they do with a solidity that isn't totally absent from the rest of the design community, but it's certainly not common.  I'd like it even more it were common.  I guess that's a long term goal.

Would really like to know if the story behind this SS collection is really true as it just seems a tad surreal......then again truth is stranger than fiction.

hectic - Jared from MF said they're going to do them again this fall.  want to say the lining will be a bit different but otherwise the same.  i know i'll be snagging one.  i'm sure Lando & PeteRock can tell you, that is one hell of a jacket.  should last you a lifetime.

Thanks, nameness. I did email them and they did not mention this (but did confirm that the jacket was not currently available). :(

That's rad, Lando.  I like a lot of the MF printed graphics on vintage gear, it's just hard to shell out for some reason.  I did snag a sweatshirt a while back and cut off the sleeves...

YOU WHAT?!?!?! Why not just get a cheap crewneck and cut that? If you want to save cash, that does not seem like the best way to go about it... IMHO

Not worried about saving cash as much as my own weird mental balance system of spending the money for a sweat vs. a tee because I wreck tees.  The sweatshirt was vintage and the cuffs were so short & tight they cut off circulation to my hands.  Cut 'em off to make a short sleeve sweat, beach style.  I know you've been to the store, they have a whole section of similar sweats that they've slashed up.

Oh that looks great. For some odd reason I flashed on a cut off version as in no sleeves at all... My bad!
