[Quote]The eye wear looks good smokeyface. if I didn't had a good pair of glasses I would of considered getting the non-sunglasses pair (I don't wear sunglasses for the most part and if I did, I'd get an Rx pair).

[Quote]While I don't own a pair of Track Zespys, I do however own 3 pairs of zespy pants as of now. Judging from the pictures on ILU's site and taking into account the fabric composed for both the track and regular zespys, the regulars are most likely more shorter than the tracks in calf lenght, especially since ILU changed manufactures a few seasons back with their zespy pants. Also, keep in mind that track zespys have a lot more stretch overall, so you go more room to work with ideally as oppose to their pants counterpart.

[Quote]With my Green Tea and Charcoal (old version, which were 100% cotton, no stretch) were somewhat stiff especially when lifting up your feet, walking up the stairs is a good example. After a week's worth of wearing them, it started to stretch and the colors faded around the pockets, which is a nice touch. Now, the new released Zespys in black, they weren't stiff upon first wear (thanks to the 5% stretch) but were tight around the legs for the first few wears. I'm sure this has something to do with it being manufactured in Vietnam as opposed to China this time around. After the break in time, I wear them a lot, Favorite pair of Zespys out of the three. The older version is still nice, but the newest one is more skinny and the drawstring is more durable which the older ones suffered from.

[Quote]In NYC, I've only seen one person wearing ILU, Chalk Series Zespy in Tan. I've been asked a few times at work where I got my pants (and watch) and when I tell them I Love Ugly, they look a bit confused until they visit the site [Image]

ILU's site changes it currency for you to view based on where you live. If you're in the U.S, it'll change the prices to USD. Japan? Then JPY. The prices are still in NZD upon final checkout but while you're viewing the garments on the site, the currency changes to reflect your world location.

[Quote]*Note that the fit of pants are not always the same to jeans. So comparing your jeans to Zespys may not be the best comparision but It's better than nothing. I'm a size 29-30 in jeans and I wear a size small (30 waist) in Zespys and it fits like a glove [Image] (after the break In time). Because of the fit, Zespy pants will be loose/roomy at the thighs and skinny from the knee down. If you want to be safe than sorry, get a medium. You'll still get the fit and the legs will be skinny with some room if that's what you prefer. P.S - I'm 5'11, 130 lbs and as for pants, I wear a 28-29, mostly 28

I was looking at the Spirit Collection today. You can tell that they took most of the pieces from the Wraith collection, such as the Undershirt and Biker Jeans and altered them to fit their women's customers. however, the collection overall Is solid for being the brand's first women's release. The hemline and dropped back length's done up great for both the Zip Up Shirt (Which should of been in the Wraith's Collection) and Undershirt and the Spirit's Biker Jeans will probably be most appreciated for the women who like the Wraith's Biker Jeans, but wasn't liking the Idea of having to settle for the men's size and general fit. I'm looking forward to their A/W collection and hopefully Represent keep making women's collection from time to time.  [Image]

[Quote]Represent's earlier collection were a hit and miss, overall a miss for me when I first discovered the brand. Ghost was a bit of an improvement but a lot of the garments became ruined by the big and bold branding. Fast forward to Wraith, and you have a line up that displays minimalism and elongated/extended shaped garments. Even though others have voiced their opinion that what Represent is doing is no different that ADYN, I believe that is very debatable as Represent and ADYN shares the same archetype, but the final product is a distinct reflection of each personal aesthetic.

[Quote]Not that ILU's boots would be shitty In terms of build and finish, but Muhstakes makes a valid point. If the boots are released at a certain High (price point), then you'd probably would be better off buying Red Wings or something of the same quality just because of It being a more sound purchase.

With Represent releasing the Wraith collection a little over two months ago and the Spirit collection coming out in a few weeks, what's you opinion about the brand this year and the garments that's been released. Unlike Ghost, Wraith had discrete branding which Is something I like to find with clothing which in turn got me more interested In their newest collection. I got my eyes on the Wraith Zip Up Hoodie and hopefully can purchase it this or next month, as I like the silhouette and and the overall elongated aesthetic of the piece smokeyface. I'm also Interested with what Represent's planning on doing for their Pre-Fall collection as well and the response they'll receive from Spirit once it's released.

[Quote]The Derbies are always cool every season they're released. I probably would of considered the boots but my Palladium's still has some life left in them so boots are not something I want/need this Winter.

Well, the Forest Green Zespys are out, So by the end of the month they'll hopefully be in my possession [Image]. I'm a little Interested In the Military Pants especially since the black ones got restocked and I'm liking the overall shape and functionality of It.

ILU's June/July editorial is out. Overall, I'm liking the aesthetics of the of the editorial and of the upcoming garments. They show more angles of the Zespy Jeans and while I'm still undecided about them, they do look good (even if it's distressed/ripped). Saw more shots of the Army Green Military Pants as well, the CW on those pants makes it very clean especially for the Fall/Winter [Image]

[Quote]The denim Zespys are okay, I would have to see additional images and also I'm not the biggest fan of light wash denim [Image]
