Not related to men's clothing, but an amazing video on Rick Owen's FW03 collection. Video found via Rosenrot's Facebook page, which has a ton of great links, for those interested
Blowdrying helps add volume.
I know we're all in agreement that none of use are going to be riding motorcycles in this thing, but it should be noted that some of us are unlikely to even move.
Is it just me, or does anyone else find that "designer" clothes are more likely to come with loosely sewn-on buttons? I can't imagine that it's done intentionally, but I also don't understand why it's so common. I don't own anything by any of the more "avant garde" designers mentioned on this board, but among the heritagey, workweary labels, it seems unusually common (not just EG). I've had this happen on EG, WWM, Chimala, Buzz Rickson ... you name it. TBH, it's kind of...
FWIW, I think most of the value in EG is in the design, not small differences in quality. At least for me, as long as things are made "well enough," I just care about how the item looks (and will look over time). People underrate design on menswear forums, IMO, and overrate construction quality.
Unbel should buy a cotton hoodie and spray Allen Edmonds' Suede Protector all over it.
I have a grey zip up hoodie from Strike Gold. Truth be told, I think it was a waste of money, but FWIW, denimheads seem to highly regard it.http://www.selfedge.com/sweaters-hoodies?product_id=842Iron Heart also makes one.http://www.selfedge.com/sweaters-hoodiesAlso, these Army duffles aren't super-cutting edge or anything, but they go for $17 on eBay and I think would work well for a gym bag [[SPOILER]]
Though, it sounds like Synth is supposed to get a M? Would be nice to give it to someone who would normally take a L. I don't know if Synth's jacket just looks the way it does because it's not the right size.
