I picked a pair up from La Garconne sale a few weeks ago. The waist is TTS with slim thighs.

Dude can do this (i'd be very content to own that jacket if it fit me like it fits that model)
and still make something like this, that could be in any goth ninja's wardrobe

I still maintain it's likely that the out of character SW&D landing image was chosen due to commercial interests. To quote Hudder's founder....
In order to get large companies to advertise on a forum, you have to provide them with the demographics and image they're looking for. What is this commercially desirable image? To help us answer that question, take a look at the front page images on these mainstream SW&D retailer's web sites....
Why do all these marketers purposefully display the same "dandy" suited style that does not match that of their average customer? Without being able to explain precisely why, it is safe to assume it is done out of commercial interests. Even if Fok had no explicit commercial thought behind the image, he may have chosen it unconsciously because it makes the site look similar to other commercially successful SW&D businesses. We call this "relevance", that is trying to look cool and current by being exactly like everyone else.
Thus as inaccurate as the current image is, it is not totally out of place. Just try to imagine Unilever selling their products on a site displaying the SZ banner.
er... nice analysis, but probably completely offbase. Here is what happened. It's actually pretty prosaic, and honestly, in all the projects I've worked on, stuff usually works this way for the last minute details.
The Huddler sent us some douchey Diesel like images. I was like "Not on my watch, dudes. So I decided that we should do a collage, like we did for SF10. I asked Parker to mock something up. Parker was like "Um, bad idea. That would be too busy." Good point. Then he sent me a bunch of images. Some (2?) were vaguely goth ninja. I actually liked one of them. One of them was of a RRL Gambler jacket. There was a picture of a dude with jeans and boots, waist down. Then there was this.
I dismissed the RRL jacket and the jeans picture right away, since Denim is already in the subforum name, and I didn't want it to seem to denimcentric. One of the "darker" pictures was cool. I thought that this was cool too (In the original mockup, with had fewer stickies, you couldn't even see the tie, just the sleeve and the hat. I decided on this one because there was some color, and I didn't want the page to look too drab. Plus, I really like how saturated was the blue in the picture, and I thought that it complemented the colors of the page best.Quote:
Actually, a lot of Brits do a chisel toe - pretty classic, really. For example, the iconic Edward Green 888 last is a chisel toe. The Tricker's Ghillie boot for women (my wife has a pair) has a chisel toe. Those are the two that come immediately to mind. Girling&Gaziano does one as well.
Well, at the last FW Pitti, he told me he stopped doing WJK because he wanted to do something more casual and wearable and not "so ponderous". And when I pointed out some boots and mentioned that they really resembled the classic C.Diem shape, he laughed and told me that he actually had copied the old style completely, just ripped off his own shit, because he wanted to wear them. Then he added that the only difference was that these were made in Japan rather than Italy. And after a pause... "and they are yellow." He is a serious designer, no doubt. And he knows all about the difference concepts, etc... but at the end of the day, he realizes that clothes are for wearing, and really, for fun. And sometimes, you want to express yourself through clothes. And sometimes, that expressions is just plain "I'm having a good time here." Also, we both joked that I was probably a size 4, or even a 5, for most of his designs, and that he was decidedly a 5 "when they even fit me". Maybe when he was 16, he was moping around being all gothy. But it doesn''t seem the case now, either in his clothes (which have terrific treatments and are very well thought out, especially the outerwear), or his manner.post #70852 of 1090531/5/13 at 7:17pmpost #70853 of 1090531/5/13 at 7:55pmpost #70854 of 1090531/5/13 at 7:57pmpost #70855 of 1090531/5/13 at 8:06pmQuote:
Thanks for the honest explanation, although it sounds like I was not completely off base in suggesting that Huddler might want to suggest imagery. Can you share with us these Diesel-like images? I'd be curious to see them.Quote:
In my opinion this nicely sums up the difference between junhashimoto and wjk. Jun is like wjk, but with the serious/dark elements mostly removed and replaced with a more sporty aesthetic. In this sense it directionally represents the antithesis of SZ: less serious, less heavy, less dark, and less full of self importance.
Brad has expressed disapproval of the sportiness that continues to creep into Jun's collections, but I actually like it. While you can still construct a "goth ninja lite" style outfit using some of the pieces in his collections, the majority of his pieces are no longer like this. I can honestly see someone who wears stuff like Stephan Schneider or forum members such as Hendrix wearing his stuff.
Perhaps you could do a styleforum exclusive interview with him and post it to the forum?post #70856 of 1090531/5/13 at 8:18pmpost #70857 of 1090531/5/13 at 8:20pmpost #70858 of 1090531/5/13 at 8:46pmpost #70859 of 1090531/5/13 at 8:50pmpost #70860 of 1090531/5/13 at 8:53pm
