Max Studio

I ended up on Max Studio yesterday, and I fell in love: black, black-shiny, tuxedos, and trench coats. I even appreciate the clean unfussy way the clothes are presented. When I tell you with the sale this is all under 250 and not final, you will understand how great the pain is.

How a sleeve makes all the difference.

Very similar to a tuxedo coat I've been casually eying on ebay. Though this one is undoubtedly better made for the same price as the ebay one, there are some more unique design features on the ebay one that I like better.

The box pleat in the back is stunning.

I know it looks grey here, but it is black. I would be all over this trench, but taking care of first things first, I've already decided on the black DB trench I'm getting.

I'm really debating these boots in patent. They are very interesting, but they don't immediately strike me as "for me" as some other styles I'm eying. I have a certain vision and mood in my head and these don't quite fit it. They seem to have a more mod reference and that is a territory I don't like to go too far into. I think this is a case of where I can love something but not necessarily for myself...

  1. the boots really stand out, but i know the feeling of seeing something fantastic but not quite 'me' - made the mistake of bringing them home a few times!

    the coats are amazing.

  2. It really is all about the sleeves. I love making swooshy sounds in my head as I wave my billowing sleeves around. Sometimes people stare at me.

  3. i agree those shoes have an overt mod reference, particularly in patent leather.
    coat w/ back box pleat- ooooo! nice.
    i'd buy that first coat in a heartbeat! i like everything about this design, especially the sleeves and collar. it definitely looks very "you".

  5. HAH! that's so weird that you said that, -h: loving those shoes but for someone else. Do you know who that someone else is? Mr. DOT!!

    I swear: last winter, he was on a crusade to find them for himself. He called them 'Chelsea boots' (we also live in Chelsea) - I think that was the 60s term. I hated them - esp. on him - and he never got them (I'm sure that's not why).

    The funny thing is, knowing you - knowing your style - I think they'd be great for you. In either patent, or not.

    And I know what you mean about sleeves. They DO make all the difference. Those top ones are so you. So when do we get to see the DB trench? What is DB, anyway?

    Your post is next, -h! I just have to run photos by you, for approval. ; )

  6. great "wizard" sleeves on that first coat.

    i have a suit by max studio that fits really well, i've had it for several years now and it has held up nicely.

  7. Everything here is brilliant, and just how I see "you." Even the patent boots. Would they be an enjoyable departure for you?

  8. Loving the great sleeve. I'm intrigued by the boots. Sometimes things that aren't you turn out to be you after all....

  10. I'll never stop hoarding articles of clothing in black!

    This is a wonderful selection you've gathered. And women wearing shoes that resemble that of the men's is always interesting and fascinating to that extent.

  11. max studio has always been underrated. and i like that about the brand. its always nice to pick up something you know you won't see on few others.
    those patent boots are hot for you, me, the girl over there...we should all have a pair!

  12. I really like those boots. Although, more so in regular leather than patent. (And I NEVER like flats!) They'd look so good with black jeans or black tights...like a 10 mile long, black molded leg. And they didn't occur to me as "mod" until I read what you wrote...so I think it's in the styling. I'm with you, though, on generally avoiding excessive mod references. Get them, get them! Lauren
