    I’d have to go with Rogues Gallery or Robery Geller. I give major props to Andre 3stacks for being dropped in here though.

    Truth be told, I’d go with Rogues Gallery. Benjamin Bixby as runner up.

    I’m not going to lie although Andre 3000 is one of the stand out people in the hiphop scene as far as fashion goes. I didnt think he would release such good pieces he did work on this line for a long time, and is a pretty creative dude, he pretty blew me away. Too bad I dont have the funds cop out on most of the designer stuff, but a good sale always gets me to spend bread on it. I’m anxious to see who wins this.

    I’m going with Shipley & Halmos for the winner, they have evolved so amazing in my opinion if they really show the judges like Thom Browne that they have evolved in such a good way. Joshua I see where you would call by going with Rogues Gallery and such they are a good designers.

    Shipley & Halmos a lot of people are unaware of their collection , people will go with Benjamin Bixby because it’s head designer is a celebrity/rapper. But as far as real talent goes S & H has been designing crazy pieces. Im not going to take anything away from Andre Benjamin he has done a fabolous job .
