^lol exactly what I was thinking




Shah post up some more Damir & Yohji fit pics. Gives me inspiration for what I might try to go for.

So I went to L'éclaireur in the Marais today to check out their collection of Damir and Rick and, just, whoa. Their shit is Awesome. It's waaay clearer what you guys mean when you talk about Rick's t's and what puts them in a completely different league than AA viscose jerseys (I think that should have been obvious before, but I just never had a reference for, or a means of discerning, that). Now, sadly, Rick t's and Damir Doma trousers cost far more than I could afford (for probably a long time)—but that just means I've got something cool to look forward to in the (admittedly distant) future. I took some photos on my phone too, but the quality is really shitty so it just looks like I'm wearing a shirt and sweatpants. Seriously incredible stuff though.

That's what it looks like to normal people, so the photos are pretty true-to-life

Mmm, I disagree. As much as such an outfit might have the same "shape" as, or basic elements of, a lounge-look, it's pretty clear that, in person, shit's waaaay beyond sweatpants+t-shirt. The construction of those clothes—their fabric, their volume, the cut, the "flair"—practically bellows at you. Someone once mentioned this before in a conversation about goth-ninja/sheik-sarabande: whereas most aesthetics that focus on "slimming" the wearer's silhouette rely primarily on color-matching and patterns to construct an interesting look, a Rick- or Damir- or Julius(?)-look is going to leave everything (mostly) monochrome, focusing instead on fabric and eccentricity as the locus of the fit's attitude. In other words, it looks way fucking cooler than a t-shirt and sweatpants, and it's really, really noticeable.
post #58551 of 109053
Ehh idk if I'd throw Julius in there, totally different IMO.


I do agree most of what you're saying though. I love the silhouette and it's harder (but not impossible) to create it with most other brands.

I really enjoy it as well and agree with both of you, I'm just saying that the Rick luxe-loungewear stuff looks very similar to a sweatpant and tee to most people

I've given it some thought but anyone consider becoming a personal shopper via setting up a blog/webpage of sorts and producing some consulting for interested people? I purchased the Photoshop suite 2 months ago and still yet to install the package. Need to get my alternative stream of income flowing ASAP.
post #58557 of 109053
yea gonna have to do better than that
post #58558 of 109053
our legacy has a pair the seem nice, COS probably has something.
post #58559 of 109053
Just look at my RP in thread and let me know. I've gotten several PMs.
I'll know personally this Tuesday when the shipment arrives.

FWIW, I searched through Yoox past couple of days and found a lot of worthwhile purchases of trousers and jackets around the $200 mark. I was pleasantly surprised, but did get "burned out" and bored (It got so easy)
post #58560 of 109053
toj slim trousers!! theyve got an elasticized waistband.
schneider, kva. more and more designers are doing it so you'll find a pair eventually.

shah, i dont think ill wear it out on its own. ive always intended to layer my siki im top over the kurta.
