Kanye is at it again.
Seriously. Can someone explain what's going on with the huge sweat shirts?
Fok is pretty much right. The fits are often meant to be generous because the fabrics have great drape. But you can sometimes size down for a more fitted look. Really depends on the piece though. But at that price, it's worth the gamble.
Oh yeah, sleeves run long.
Even with my degree in philosophy, I can't quite understand that there is a substantive debate here.
Of course, I never really studied Focault...
But I have studied slouchy-shoulder jackets. As I always say, see Transit Uomo. Great ones for sale at a steal on C21.
I like to avoid wearing dark colors on the bike. My bike itself is snow white. Especially in bad weather conditions, the number one thing people say when they wreck into a biker is "I didn't even see him!"
Over here in London, where the weather is less-than-optimal, full textile suits and fluorescent crossing guard vests are the norm. When you see people dressing for image, they're usually rocking a Learner plate.
Of course, there are those guys who have...
Never met anyone who took a slide wearing a cotton jacket. Curious to hear how that would turn out...
Actually I did crash once wearing just my Levi's denim jacket. Like a smashed fly into the back window of an SUV. Didn't slide though - thank god - 'cause my jacket was ok. Wearing it today actually.
Yeah, one really shouldn't pay more than like 50 bucks for them, and even that's a stretch.
But hey, call me curious. I don't expect them to be anywhere near the quality of the designer knockoffs improved versions. But let's see what happens when I dunk them in salt water, throw on two pairs of socks and take them on the treadmill for 30 minutes.
I know this older Triumph ridin' dude in the Boston area. Somewhere along the line he got himself a Roadcrafter suit from Aerostitch. Pretty sure he stopped buying gear after that. Tough to do much better.
However, I think that leather touring suits are overrated. Some of the newer stuff from Dainese with the technical fabrics, intelligent pocket placement, inserts for gadgets and for the airbag that's coming down the pike... really impressive stuff.
I guess it...
I was considering gray, but it just seemed like too much of a half measure.
So I ordered two pairs of sneakers:
CP Achiles Vintage Lows in black
And just in case I feel the urge to wear white shoes two or three times a year, some classic BW-Sport from a vendor of German Army surplus goods:
Yeah they're not the baller kind. But they're the authentic article.
An ironic purchase. I had a pair of MMM GATs, but sold them because I rarely wore them. No...
Need some help guys. I don't have a single pair of (non-athletic) sneakers in my wardrobe. I only want a single pair of do-it-all minimal sneakers that will last for years and go with most my wardrobe of muted earth tones and the odd pop of color. Alot of grays, blues, browns and some black.
Also, for some reason, I just can't stand white sneakers. Living in London, it's rainy and dirty all the time.
What's the most versitile, durable, comfortable, non-white,...
