So...any recs for some non-nylon, maybe tweed-like, fashunz adventure-wear that is actually suitable for adventure? (Or picnics -- maybe just a muddy picnic). Watching or reading a lot of 19th century stuff, recently, I long for this. I mean, I see a lot of Engineered Garments -type things, but without first-hand knowledge, it's hard to gauge what's truly up for adventure, and what will simply evanesce in your hands, that crunchy meadow, that brilly tree over there...
eg is pretty damn tough man. it may be a "fashion" brand, but the stuff is just as high quality as anything else. i'm better nigel is just as tough too.
i might get some hate for this but with the yohji, don't keep...
idk once in a while, if you really like leathers. you want to wear a leather jacket and jeans. Just make sure you love that leather more than any others. My giorgio brato keeps me 99% happy but it coulda been looser on the shoulders. Fuckin tightest 52 ever.
There's also nothing wrong with having items in your wardrobe that are "incongruous." Like who cares? If you like it, and if you like wearing it, then that's really all that needs to be said. To an extent, that sort of approach is fine. Myself, on the other hand, I have a lot of trouble figuring out exactly what it is that I like—for a while I was really into Yohji and Comme; then I wanted to do nothing but wear Rick; and then I thought dressing like a Parisian lout was my thing. And there's been other stuff too. I didn't get to try all of these out, but I do realize that some aspects of these different styles are more or less "me." I'm still trying to figure out what main theme(s) tie my wardrobe together. But you seem to have a pretty solid Yohji look put together, and this more "traditional" streetwear look seems fairly easy to figure out (if anything even needs to be figured out). You can reconcile two (or more) styles if you've got a handle on 'em and if you're ultimately comfortable in them.
My wardrobe has everything from Rick Owens to Tricker's and Nigel Cabourn to Canali and Drakes. The variety makes me happy, I don't think a wardrobe needs a theme--it naturally evolves into an expression of one's personal likes and dislikes. Warning: Spoiler!(Click to show)
