Till now, the American label hasn’t been present in the street where Prince Charles, Winston Churchill, Napoleon and probably every stylish Englishman bought their suits.
According to the British Vogue, city government has already spoken out against the establishment of A&F:
“Savile Row has a unique character — currently there are no high-street chains present (…). A management plan should be put in place to ensure this character is retained.”
To see half-naked A&F sellers, teenage-girls taking cell-phone pictures, and even louder screaming fags, in the “Golden Mile of Tailoring” would be a terrible stylistic inconsistency. Still, we can’t consider the management plan against new high-street reatailers new advocates of libertarian values.
We would be way more excited if the long-established menswear specialists put the new ABERCROMBIE-stores on fire in old-fashioned hooligan manner and, true to style, wearing three-piece suits, of course.
For years, I have been having sleeping problems. Every single night, one question haunts me, keeps me awake and simply leeds my into the already open arms of insanity: What would I wear, in case I am invited to the funeral of a beloved person from the Amish community? You know how it is, with those questions. Everybody has them.
Last night, after a long time, I could sleep (and then correctly: twelve-and-a-half hours).
You can not imagine, how relieved I am. Sometimes it is as easy, this real life in the fake one.
Opel-Gang in Riga!

Two classics have been dared by Pharrell: the super-star training-jacket with the iconic Adidas-stripes and the Stan Smith – both items are going to be available in red, blue and black.
The jacket will cost about 1000 Dollar, the Stan Smith 150 Dollar. From the 20th of september on, the first pieces of the collaboration will be delivered to selected sneaker-stores, concept-stores and adidas originals flagship stores.
