I been out of the fashion game for a while.

    I barely see it at all anymore, people even stopped wearing the meme Converse. Their fragrances are god tier and worth checking out if you’re into that, I can’t speak on clothing quality myself though.

      I went to SJSU 10 years ago. I remember my friend’s roommate did some kind of modeling gig and showed up with a pair of CDG Converse one time.

        They had a decently long run, I’m a zoomer and my more hypebeast friends were rocking them in high school into 2019 because it was "designer" but cheap. I think they’re just a 2010s trend that phased out with the end of the decade, haven’t seen them once since covid first hit

    fragrances good
    cdg shirt line is decent but overpriced
    everything else is just a mix of interesting or cute heart logo

    used to have a shirt from them before it got hecked in the wash
    they’re pretty nice quality but you can get better shit for the money

    There’s so much cheap and interesting second hand CDG floating around that there’s no excuse to have a boring wardrobe. I will say however that shopping online for CDG can be a bit difficult because many of the details can’t be appreciated without inspecting the item in person and it’s easy to gloss over unique items because of this. Probably 1/3 of my wardrobe is made up of mainline CDG with a small amount of CDGCDG, Tricot and Homme Plus.

        What the sizing like? You’re suppose to size up right?

        In the past couple of years I’ve come to the conclusion that sizing doesn’t really matter and should just be used as guidelines for how the clothes should fit, but going off the physical measurements of each item and wearing them so that they’re in the correct (or incorrect if you’re doing something weird) proportions to each other. I generally find that XS or S pants fit me fine, M is acceptable, L is too big but can be made to work. At the same time, tshirts and shirts tend to be sized quite small unless intentionally oversized.

      good post. i’m not a huge cdg-head really but i probably have a dozen pieces of theirs that i’ve cobbled together from y!j/mercari through the years for dirt cheap.

      where do you buy cdg? i’m either stupid or the website is unnavigable nonsense. either way im very fond of their stuff

      yahoo japan or mercari. you should pretty much never buy brands directly from the designer themself as it will be more expensive (obviously if you see a good deal then this changes).

      What the sizing like? You’re suppose to size up right?

      definitely don’t size down but you don’t necessarily need to size up. as other anon said just check measurements.

      i haven’t followed what the recent seasons are like but there’s an absolute shitload of secondhand comme on the market and probably will be forever, so take the plunge and buy some of it if you enjoy the style.

    rei is old and her shows are her existing instead of trying these days.
    tao/tricot is still the same shit it has been.
    junya is goofy gimmicky bullshit.
    cdg black is low quality, especially for the price.
    noir kei ninomiya has been doing cool shit and has been improving with time.
    the cdg wallets are cool but heck graphic tees honestly. even for graphics, there’s more interesting places

    When you see the heart logo, the brand is cdg play, which is basically their accessible line of clothing for trendy zoomers so the brand can get some money to help pay for their other shit. cd play isn’t exactly respected, but fans know its akin to box logo shirts.
    cdg as a whole is an extremely experimental and respected brand in the actual fashion community. If you want a better idea, look up clothing by Junya Watanab or Rei Kawakubo, or just watch a runway show.
    The consensus among people who actually know what’s up is that it’s a top tier brand with an extremely loyal following.

    it’s sad that cdg play clothes are considered hypebeast and in poor taste because i like how the logo looks and the simple designs are very comfy. i would enjoy it more if it was cheap h&m tier clothing but looked the same. i dont like how i look like im trying to flex when wearing it, i wish it was just a normal, low key brand. i own picrel t-shirt, and the material is good quality, but it’s really thick. also i should’ve bought a size L, M is still wearable, but i don’t like its slim fit, which combined with the thicker material makes the shirt unpleasantly warm.
