Words

The knitwear from the Margiela collections is arguably the highlight each season, making fall one to look forward to. This fall, there are a number of fine looking items again. Using premium fabrics, simple details and a nice dull color palette, MMM offers just what I would be hoping for with these items.

too expensive for what it is. Why paying for the brand name and 4 little stitch details when you can get awesome traditional knitwear for a fraction of the price.

Slimmer fitz bro!

Because 'traditional knitwear' fits like shit more often than not and the wool it's made of pales in comparison 8 times out of 10.

If you can't afford it, don't buy it. We don't need to hear about it.

Do us all a favor and look past the price tag for once (or forever) and just appreciate the beautiful garments and products.

No one is making you read the comments. If you want to be gently lulled to sleep by ad copy just read the post and leave the comments to people with something to say other than "dope".

Also you're an idiot if you believe that overpriced somehow = unaffordable. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, the Ikea founder whose name escapes me..do you think they're dropping major cash on clothing? Jesus Christ.

Yeah word up.. Comments like that are about as tedious and relevant as whining about the prices of prominent abstract expressionist artworks. Obviously not the best analogy but you get my point.

You are all as tedious as each other.

MMM knitwear is awful quality, be lucky to get a season's wear out of it. I used to work for Staff International and we had loads of returns back from customers and retailers. Staff should stick to what they know best - making jeans for Diesel

Are you new to knit ?

These 2 margiela joints are simple modern fit crew and shawl collar sweatshirts. Tell me one relevant reason why I should spend tons more on these than on some SNS, Smedley etc ?

Because stop being poor-that's why! Derp derp.

Don't get me wrong dude, I get myself a semi dozen smedleyz for the price.

I was wondering, how would you compare the quality of a Margaret Howell knitwear piece to a Smedley one? Would you say Margaret Howell knitwear is overpriced?

David... Smedley knitwear is extremely good, and something I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. In my opinion though, and I'm someone who owns knitted pieces by Smedley and Margiela, Margaret's knitwear is the best around. It is expensive, but if there's one thing worth spending a little extra money on, it's a good knitted item.

I think Margaret Howell is very overpriced, Im a knitwear buff and frankly the quality is good, BUT not that good-especially this season winter 2013.

Used to love her, but her clothes are getting more and more depressing and samey every season, prices getting higher and quality lower and frankly they arent very flattering, cutwise and especially colourwise. And yes-to all her groupies, I am aware of what she is trying to achieve design wise. But this endless obsession with early seventies summers sandals/pleated skirts etc etc makes me think she might benefit from therapy.

I for one, am not buying the expensive mythology around Margaret Howell, anymore.
