old news yet lofty on thought, i’m questioning kim jones’ transition at alfred dunhill. congrats to jones for overseeing product design and development across the brand, ie. leather and menswear, but that brand is as exciting as ben stein or my fathers concept of dressing, which ever is greater. truly ne ma tasse de thé.
although jones’ creative vision and talent is unabashed, i wonder if quality will become an issue for the house as my umbro by kim jones shoes buckled at the seams after two months of inconsistent wear. i really got owned. super glue & then goodwill perhaps. yes! for (conflict & resolution).
