Recently I did an interview with the well-written menswear blog – Something Bespoke – which you can view here. At around the same time I did a podcast too with a few people from the care-tags forum in which I prattled about Comme des Garçons. Due to the overlapping subject matters and both being done within the same period there were a few points which I repeated. Be warned that the podcast is 50 minutes long.

Disclaimer: I made a couple of mistakes in the podcast. One – I mentioned that I’ve never seen silk in CdG. Days after the podcast was recorded I found a CdG garment with silk content. Two – I said that CdG doesn’t rely on branding, but what I meant was advertising, especially in recent years. Talk about a proper brain fart eh.

Yes I’m aware that I’m very much overdue in posting my holiday photos. Bear with me as I try to churn them out as quickly as I can. It’s the middle of the summer in the northern hemisphere so I hope these photos will still be somewhat relevant down south. Then again the things I wear are always not in sync with the seasons half of you are experiencing at any point in time. So I guess it’s business as usual.
