Absolutely! I also saw some Ann jeans... they were slim cut acid wash blue jeans with dark dark gray paint over the entire thing. Kinda weird to be honest with you.

Gonna try the items on tonight and see if the girlfriend likes them hahaha.

both purchases sound really nice Chinor1z. Would like to see pics from you too. Especially the pants.

faust - the Ann D. jkt you picked on the shopaholic is really cool. Would fit well in your wordrobe.

I liked the assymetric pale pink sweater best (I think that's the one on LVR or Aloha, don't remember which). It's $440, and it looks so effortless, yet complicated, with those assymetrical seams, and a little skewed fit. I saw lots of shirts, but shirts usually leave me cold. The laceless shoes rocked, and they actually come with the laces, so you can wear them either way. There was also a leather jacket/blazer, and the leather was incredibly light ($2.8k).
Thx Faust!
Anyone know where I can find the afformentioned sweater on Aloha Rag in another color?

... and I bought both items

The pants are just plain beautiful and the shirt rocks!
I almost bought the jacket of the same material as your shirt, with the high buttoned vent, and the really long sleeves. I just couldn't do the $1200 right then, though. I'm still thinking on it. I'd like to know what Atelier is selling it for, too..

I'm going to be in NYC this weekend so I can let you know. based on airboyair's general pricing info, it seems like Bilzerian prices on the same level as Barneys at least.

I didn't go in expecting to drop a g, but ah well... "retail therapy" right? makes you feel good I'm still thinking over that carpe jacket... uff if they only had my size it would be a seriously hard decision. Why can't it just be 30% cheaper?

I'm wearing the Ann shirt today. The girlfriend loves it and loves the pants

So Bilzerian has a new SA named Mook. Asian kid, very mellow. I like going through him since we're sort of on the same wavelength. Don't know if you are loyal to an SA there, but you should talk to him. Cool dude.

Oh, no, you are breaking my heart! Do you think I'd go to Jeffrey and not see you?!

I was at IF. I think they were $598 or $498. I don't remember exactly They had them both in black and off-white. And they apparently do come with laces, so you can wear them with or without the laces.

Um, what an unfortunate name.

I deal mostly with Alan. I'm also trying to eschew the "retail therapy" philosophy and not spend any money. OK, not quite as much money. Well, I'll just settle for spending less money, really.

Hahaha, yeah I thought that too. Alan has always been nice, but "flighty".

Anyways, I hear you on the retail therapy philosophy. Just needed some new pieces and to feel a bit better before med school interview on friday


Back on the topic... I wonder why aloharag picked up really odd/boring Ann pieces. The leather jacket is nice, but everything else is kinda blah.

Aloharag is getting the necklace version of that key pendant thingy Faust posted above within the next couple weeks. I might buy it. If anyone else wants one, be sure to snatch it up quickly, or it'll be gone.

It's $1075 at Barneys.

Arturo, Barneys has that sweater in the light blue palette. It feels really nice.

I want! But somehow I doubt Barney's has it in XXS like Aloharag does.
