acne a-pant

Acne A-Pant

Acne A-Pant

jon and i made an impromptu trip to gravity pope today to check out some things. though they carry a couple good brands (acne, fifth ave. shoe repair, linda farrow vintage, karen walker, alexander wang, MM6, etc), unfortunately i've never been impressed with that store. even though the brands they carry are good, the selection isn't all that great. maybe when their fall stuff comes in it will be better. i also think the actual store design is lacking quite a bit. i don't know what it is- it just doesn't mesh well with the clothing, if that makes sense. anyway....

i've already purchased a pair of 18th amendment colbert jeans from shopbop (they were on sale for $69!) but i decided to try on the acne a-pant jeans to see how they fit. the leg was good (they would have to be hemmed quite a bit) but the bum area was not good. i did like them overall though, so if you are more ample in the posterior, i think these would be great!

please excuse the crappy quality of these phone pictures- i know, i know- i need an iphone....

As former staff of GP, I'd have to agree with your observations. The buying is not edgy enough... but I'll shut up before my friends still there catch this.

yeah, some of the brands they have are great, but as you said, I think their buying is a bit too conservative. maybe they should hire me as a buyer (i realized recently that I miss being a buyer! Love spending other people's money!) I am hopeful for fall, but another reason I don't go there very often is because they are in Kits. Kits isn't my bag. I only go there if I have to. ;)

I think what you're describing is a problem with Canadian stores generally...I bought the 18th amendment wide legged jeans in the Gatsby wash, which is a sort of 70's color and I totally love them. The sizing is crazily off though, I had to return the first pair and order two sizes up from my usual.
