So I finally bought some Edun gear...

I went out to Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills today and picked up the forest green military shirt/jacket


and a heather grey hoodie (don't have a picture).

They had a lot of stuff not shown on the website and the sales guy said Edun gear is presently their top-selling line.

Nice high-quality-to-the-extreme stuff and highly recommended.

It's the guys version of that hoodie. (I'm a guy). I checked out the ladies section and they had a lot of different pieces. But back to the guys section, they also had a bunch of t-shirts, jeans, etc. I didn't see any t-shirts that I liked, because they all had that euro-tight cut (not my thing).

Didn't mean to feminize you! My bad!


I really think their cloths are beautiful. The inside pocket poem looks sweet. What's it say?

No offense taken.

It's hard to make out what it says due to the cursive and messy stylistic silk-screening, but here's the best I can make out:

" ...'s gaze we ----ke the very you...
...e it around, so that it sees objects...
...which is so deep in the animals' fa...
...eth,. We, only see death; the free...
...decline in back of it, forever, and...
...and when it moves, it moves alon...
...eternity, like a fountain."

In other words, don't buy it for the poem.

Well, I bet you're looking spiffy in the new threads. I was actually going to go to Saks tommorow to look. Maybe at least try some stuff on. U2's got me tapped out for a while....

I just wanted to make the point that anyone who can afford Edun should go out buy some stuff to support their business model. Not to mention the stuff looks great and is quality too.

Its too bad its so expensive, but that's the probably the cost of using a big name designer and providing a living wage for the workers.

It is pricey but the principle behind it is something I'd totally be willing to pay for.

I hope other clothing makers will follow Edun's example.

Oh yeah, in an age when people are willing paying $200 for torn-up funky jeans, $215 for a nice shirt/jacket is not that bad. BTW, Edun jeans were $158.

It looks like the edge was wearing that Green Jacket in the GMA interview. I know I'm going to break down and buy some Edun gear soon but I have to fund the fall u2 tour fund first
