Aged fabric cannot be emulated...

There are one of a kind pieces that really and trully capture my eye. I love this coat because it has a real story behind it and the aging shows clearly with the colour it has become. Alot of designers try to get this look perfected but cannot, as what they produce is not an original garment with history. Its been dyed to look old and has/was made a week or month before put on your body. I feel, and a few others will agree with me that a garment should be worn in by the wearer. Unless its vintage. End of.
Again, im sorry, this is only a one mans opinion...

Funny you should say that because you aren't alone in this view. It's absolutely ridiculous to me that I should pay for someone to "distress" my clothing.

Are you serious? I've never understood it and never will.
