I'm sure the feeling was mutual.

True true, anyone that gets to know me hates me but I actually like a lot of people, never a Frenchman tho.

Masterpiece's philosophy is softening me to French stuff and their influence on American workwear. Basically back in the day Americans didn't want anything associated with England, even the clothes, so they looked to the french. A lot of similarities with US and French workwear. And is the name "paraboot" associated with the US and UK paratroopers that dropped into France in WW2??? I remember some advertising for PB with a US Paratrooper wearing em?

I just hate every French person I've ever met so much…

thats 'a closed feeling' his last collection under 'number (n)ine' in real life it as astounding how complex and intricute the work is its essentially courture and the perfect way to bow out of his label, he told no one he was finishing till after the show.

theres a lot of these elements in the soloist, but all round it has a slightly more wearable edge to it when you break it down piece by piece.
