N(N) must be the sort of clothing that must be seen in person to truly appreciate. I can never get past the "this is pretty cool" reaction to it. Given the devoted fanbase, I assume there are hidden details or qualities that aren't immediately apparent on the runway or due to the styling.

I do like the colors, skinny pants and most of the patterns from the collection, but at times it can be a little too grunge for me. BUT, that's probably the point.

Takahiro Miyashita is a man obsessed—with Johnny Cash. He called his new collection “Love, God, Murder,” after Johnny’s 2000 triple set. He also equated it with the second installment of a two-CD set, following on as it did from his Spring show, with its Cash ’n’ Cobain subtext. The Man in Black is a strong theme (the blasted soul in search of redemption isn’t an obvious reference point for men’s fashion), and Miyashita played it to the hilt.

The militarism that is one of the season’s subtexts made its presence felt in side-buttoning trousers, balaclavas, and officer’s coats, but the shaggy-haired, vacant-eyed models had the look of hell-haunted deserters, rather than heroes of the battlefield. And Miyashita kitted them out for their trek back to Cold Mountain with layers of patchwork checks, felted wools, and graded grays. Cash croaking “Personal Jesus” was the cue for a black-clad cavalcade of defrocked preachers (the big hats were straight out of The Night of the Hunter), while Willie Nelson’s “Highwayman” was the sound track for knee-boots with jacquard trim and the jabot that adorned a white shirt.

Miyashita is a designer in love with texture. That much is obvious from his treatment of skins—washed, waxed, turned inside out. But for his devotees, the real appeal of his work lies in the way he surrenders to his romantic vision of a wild and glamorous West. If there was a nightclub in Deadwood, the clientele would be wearing Number (N)ine.

I don't really like the way this has been comedically styled.....
But I think some of the stuff individually is quite nice...

at first glance, I thought it was Ann Dem, but after more looks I see more differences. I like the collection but then again I have absolutely no idea where to go to obtain any of the pieces (other than YOOX for older seasons) so it is not too exciting for me. My fav is the oversized hood/ short cloak?

I really love the black pieces, not really feeling the fannel?, or all the other folk elements for that matter.. some of them are a bit too reminiscent of cdg mens s/s 06 no?.

StrokesFan- I've never been to the store, but there's a N(N) shop in NY. I believe Atelier also stocks it. You may want to try calling them to see what your options are.

According to the Refinery29 site the contact infor is as follows:
N(N)
431 Washington Street
New York, NY 10013
212-431-8699
