He tries very hard to be neatly sloopy, too hard.

I am sorry I am all for american designers but there is nothing original at all here, to be honest it looks like tailored A & F.

Bravo, Mr. Bastian,
On an endeavor well done and a memorable first impression.
…and remember that these ‘armchair aesthetes’ and their disparaging critiques of another gentleman’s (meaning yours) means of personal expression (yawn) bring to mind the words of British author V. S. Naipaul, who said, after a year of teaching at Wesleyan University in the late 1970’s:
“Ignorant people in preppy clothes are more dangerous to America than oil embargoes.”

what are we all if not “armchair aesthetes”? deskchair aesthetes? a little coffee with your ego, sir?
the quality of ideas that designers put forward are always open to discussion, regardless of whether or not the ideas are fresh or controvesial or whatever etc etc. we all have ideas and opinions, how democratic.
in mr bastian’s case, well there doesnt seem to be too much here that hasnt been covered by ralph, tommy, a&f) before, BUT, for what it is, it’s a very sober and refined look at preppy-dom today. all wearable, all saleable, all american.

Have you misplaced your sense of humour?
The old cliche one “cannot judge a book… “still rings true.
And thanks very much, Sir, but I don’t care for coffee.

Mr. Flaneursfops(…) is great. Such an eloquent answer. He is great. I have to look at his blog, later.
ufff… the beginning of your blog was not easy, but you never stoped with talking about your thoughts. great.
Have you seen “Milk”? You would love the film!

Models are weird. With some, like this dude, you could wrap him in a garbage bag, tie it off with shoe laces and it would look interesting. He is an exceptionally good looking man, but would these clothes look extraordinary on someone less perfect. I don’t know.
