I'm swagged out at the house, sometimes though when I'm out I don't want to come home because I feel like not enough people witnessed.

Yohji pants make for perfect jammies. I've also been wearing a giant Yohji robe at home lately for the cold mornings.
rft: today was like 75F. tomorrow even warmer. I have all this great winter stuff which I'm afraid will not see the light of day this year. geez wtf.post #104629 of 1090531/24/15 at 6:33pmQuote:
was looking at yohji ss15 this morning and so much awesome stuff, not sure how to integrate into current wardrobe unless I were going to buy an entire outfit thoughpost #104630 of 1090531/24/15 at 6:34pmpost #104631 of 1090531/24/15 at 6:41pm
yeah, I think there are just some brands which seem like "closed systems" and their clothes are harder to integrate into more generalist wardrobes. I guess it depends on the rest of your stuff and how close you want to hew to a prescribed look. the old Brand Synergy topic is still relevant I guess. Some of Yohji's stuff, esp the basic trousers, are fairly easy to integrate imo. the more unique or oversized stuff is tricker and just needs more Yohji stuff to complement it. I think kgfan does a great job of wearing different brands -- includeing yohji -- very well.
it's one reason I've not got more into Engineered Garments. I feel like it really looks best with more EG.post #104632 of 1090531/24/15 at 6:46pmpost #104633 of 1090531/24/15 at 7:12pmpost #104634 of 1090531/24/15 at 8:40pmpost #104635 of 1090531/24/15 at 10:24pm
Is it just me or does this pattern make an optical illusion. Pretty dope if it happens when you look at it in person. Too bad the colors aren't my thing.post #104636 of 1090531/24/15 at 11:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by thewho13
Good advice fellas, I appreciate the input. I used to do lots of yoga a couple years ago, but I had to give it up when I chose lifting (too much $$$). I think it would be realistic to keep lifting for another year or so, hit my strength goals, and then transition into yoga once again. KJ, I think you're right: mobility demands a lot of work if it's gonna be done right. I remember how strenuous yoga was when I wasn't even lifting. It would absolutely kick my ass if I tried to pick it up now.
Most importantly, I don't want to half-ass anything. If I'm gonna lift, I have to focus on lifting. I guess I'll wait until I've wrapped up this episode before obsessing about something that requires my full attention.
One last question for Fok: which would you recommend to a newbie, jiu jitsu or Muay Thai? All the MMA/defense stuff is starting to pique my curiosity lately, and I'm wondering how reasonable it would be for me to pick it up within the next five years (I'm 24 now).
do this before or after workout. i usualy do it after/off days

Maybe I'm just really slow and everyone else noticed this before, but the-site-that-shall-not-be-named (ie. g*****d) completely stole its layout (and font) from Mr Porter.
I was looking at Ann D sneakers on g*****d and the seller had used Mr P stock photos for his images, and clicking between tabs I had a moment where I thought was actually on Mr Porter. Except there was none of the fantastically awful copy "Pair with rolled-up chinos for a sophisticated off-duty look" etc., instead "Send offers" and I was confused.post #104639 of 1090531/25/15 at 8:31am[quote name="Parker" url="/t/131495/random-fashion-thoughts/104600_100#post_7644813"it's one reason I've not got more into Engineered Garments.

I'd love to see you take a run at EG some time.post #104640 of 1090531/25/15 at 8:47amQuote:
You can pick up jiujitsu more easily than you can pick up Thai boxing. I don't actually do Muy Thai - my background was in more traditional Chinese styles and then I did American kickboxing. For MMA, I picked up things like elbows and knees (though nearly all traditional martial arts have those in one form or another). It can take a long time, and you need a dedicated trainer, to learning proper footwork and defense (something I've never been good at), and unless you grew up punching and kicking, learning efficient technique, and being able to unhinge your knees and hips to kick well, is difficult. Plenty of top tier MMA guys from grapply backgrounds, who have lots of power, don't actually execute their kicks and punches properly. Also, you can't actually spar full strength (unless you hate life and want it to end fast), so you actually need to do competitions in order to actually get full power experience. And getting punched and kicked is not in most people's wheelhouse.
Jiujitsu is good because you can spar full strength from day 1. It will take a while (well, some people are prodigies, but don't count on it), to get the hang of things. A lot of things are by degrees. It's subtle differences in technique the differentiate your day 1 white belt from your world champion. You'll probably warmup, then do technique, and then do situational wrestling, which is designed to work on that specific technique.
The real test, though, is open mat, and be prepared, if you are in a top caliber gym of any size, to get crushed for about six months - if you are going up against experienced guys, it doesn't matter how big and strong you are, because you'll be wasting a ton of energy at the beginning, and be falling into all sorts of traps. People will generally be supportive, but unless you are at a McDojo, you are not going to get any passes. DO NOT QUIT! Everyone is seeing if you have the heart to tough out the first few months. It will be grueling, but it's doable. Also, you'll find yourself sore in a lot of ways that you never felt before. A combat sport taxes you in a way that lifting never will. It's a true full body exercise.
