They didn't renew leases on the California plant, so I don't think there will be a return to the Supreme quality tubular construction they were known for. Looks like there's just a very small 'capsule' USA collection online.

But Dov Charney started up his new Los Angeles Apparel company so I assume the quality is there if you want the authentic clothing made in LA.

does anyone even buy apc any more

haven't in years. the quality isn't even there anymore imo. hardly justifies the price

APC, outside of the denim, was more about a boxy 70's/80' vibe, especially the women's side, but then when tech became popular, it didn't know what to do, so made a few bombers and formal shirts and occasionally printed the logo on a sweat.
I've still got a few nice early things by them.

Gant rugger. Pretty much gone hasn't it? Hardly anything on the website and believe all the actual stores have closed. Saying that, the mainline Gant, outside of the branded stuff, has come up in my estimation. Tailoring, both winter and summer fabrics are excellent.

What the fuck just what the fuck
The models, the prices, what is it all about anymore ?
Does their quality justify jacket pricing of £300-£500 as the norm? Or £250 a shirt?

Still buy apc. Like what they are doing currently. Guess it's not for everyone anymore. Our legacy is getting stupid. Almost feel as if they are doing it an ironic sense just to see how far they push the consumer

i'd like to add acne studios to that list…
2 years ago, i thought that i will never buy sth. from another brand again and today i feel ashamed just lookin' at the new collections…the new cut of that bla konst bullshit is just wrong, their shoes are maybe the worst in the game?, cheapish prints/details, oversized just for the sake of it and not to create wearable new aesthetics with a twist (…like they used to), etc…Anyone on here still feels their stuff? Maybe i'm wrong and it sells great?
I think our legacy created their own thing. It's not for me anymore, but i can feel their direction and clearly see the idea and aesthetic. Same goes for apc, which is pretty much what it used to be, right? Still like them.

Agree with all of the above.
What the ol/acne fans now wearing since they’ve generally lost it (apart from the odd item)? Just simple arket/cos etc?

If anything OL taught me to look beyond brands and more towards construction, where it's made, what it's made from. Came across a relatively cheap shirt by Jean.Machine the other day, made in portugal, light yellow. Could be from a Splash OL season minus the tag.
