Fur Coats and Celebrities

Here’s a raw thread on the Kitmeout Fashion Forum – take a butchers

Here’s a snippet:

“I think in the main celebrities who wear fur do so out of ignorance. they are generally so out of touch with the real world and I genuinely believe that if they really did understand the suffering that takes place and just how unpopular it all is with the general public they wouldnt wear it. Lets be honest their whole career is based around their popularity after all.”.

Italian Fashion in Milan

There’s plenty of debate on the Kitmeout Fashion Forum concerning the top fashion cities in the world. Milan often comes up on top. Take a butchers at this thread:

Discount Stone Island Jackets

Stone Island is one of the most popular brands on the Kitmeout Fashion Forum. Here is a bunch of threads going back over the years. See Here >

Take a butchers at the kind of comments: “It’s all part of the brand mystique that Stone Island in Italy and the Fourmarketing boys in the UK try to generate. Have to say they have done an incredible job over the past decade keeping Stone Island in the consciousness of it’s target audience and maintaining incredible and consistent sales. If they cannot get a grip on all the fakes and parallels coming into the UK they could find the brand in trouble in the very near future.”.

Vivienne Westwood Fashion Model

From the Sex Pistols to Bondage, Viv likes to do it different. The cynics say it’s simply clever marketing, getting attention for nothing more than intellectually devoid fluff – perhaps? On the other hand, giving Viv the benefit, many see her as truly unique. Here we get a butchers of an atypical male model: an ordinary geezer who clearly likes a pint, a burger and an hour on the sunbed:

CP Company made in Indonesia

Kitmeout was selling CP Company back in 2000 and has long been a big fan of the brand and its father Massimo Osti.

Here’s an interesting thread on the Kitmeout Fashion Forum:

“Any of you lot know if CP Company have started making gear in countries other than Italy. I have got quite a bit of CP stuff and are all made in Italy. But recently i purchased a S.I demins t shirt from and when it arrived i noticed it was made in Rumania (or to us Romania) then just a few days ago i purchased a body warmer off ebay and this was made in Indonesia. It’s got the spa tag with art number etc.. so it’s real but i’m not used to seeing CP and Stoney gear made elsewhere. Do any of you have clothes made in any of these countries.”

“it’s partially true. soy bean production like any other farmed crop is a strain on the enviornment. however, it is nothing compared to the detrimental impact that livestock farming produces. cattle produce more carbon than all the cars in the world combined and here’s the big one, it takes 1 acre of livestock to produce 1lb or meat protein but the same 1 acre can produce 10lb of veg protein. so bean farming is not only more environmentally sound it also has the ability to feed the starving.”
