OK but he did make a cape out of dead birds which is fucking metal and all is forgiven

we have fought well! we perch on fallen goths
like eagles on a bough
Great is our fame; should we die now or tomorrow
No man lives out the evening after the decree of Norns!

It's like he went full retard.. You can't have both ill fitting un anatomical pieces and bizarre materials. Need one or the other.

Margiela Wallet is on eBay

Hehe, too late

I thought of bidding myself, but I probably would get bored with it after a week when the novelty wears off

I found exactly zero information on them online so I just took a punt on the sizing and ordered a medium, here's hoping they don't run small. I'll write something up when it arrives, should be a day or two.

they run small shog[1].gif

I ordered a size medium (I'm 5'10", 40" chest, 31" waist) and i can zip it up fine, slim in the chest and waist, but too tight in the shoulders and too short by a good 3 inches. I'm debating whether or not to try a large. A large should fit well in the shoulders and body, but I'm not sure it would be long enough.

Yoox also doesn't tell you about the bright orange lining with the giant elephant on it. (lining color i'm okay with, not so okay with the elephant though).

size tag is odd... says size medium but also says size 42 short, however fits more like a small/36 short.

pics of tag and lining: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



apart from whats mentioned above, the quality is pretty nice. heavy duty zipper, fabric is soft. 100% polyester with a slight sheen. Not much padding, so it isn't huge like a repro MA1.

I'll take some full pics tomorrow, its dark out right now and the florescent lighting in my house is terrible. I'm not sure if its worth taking a fit pic, because it just looks like a dude in a too-small jacket.

I ordered something in december, it never showed up / seller never issued tracking, I opened a case two weeks ago, won it last week, and today it arrived on my door.

 

I guess I should ship it back? Or what? I'm probably still going to get hit with customs and have to pay for shipping.

re: bomber-jackets

tried this weekday one today (though it was black), was really cool, fabric is almost shimmering in person, good fit too

140$ so pretty cheap, can PM fitpics if anyone is interested

Oh look it's a meteor ring! It's made of penis bone! I think a big part of his popularity is that he's been really courting the blogosphere.

 

I find most of the stuff a bit lacklustre or hideously overpriced (some of the tees are nice, but the pricing on them it literally insane).

 

I got bored and went to his website the other day and didn't mind some of the sweaters, or though I will admit a certain amount of what swayed me was that the photography is pretty, which is why I've not dropped $500 on a knit wear piece (on sale), because really, it might just fit badly, look strange and serve no purpose at all.

 

Or it might be cool, I don't know, I don't really want to pay $500 (I think).

Thos pieces right there, like you say, are not extreme. I´m sure they´d look good as long as you get the right size. Though oversized knits can be pulled off as well.

 

I can't ever imagine wearing or using the wooden panel top, but I can imagine using a woolen sweater in an interesting (for me) cut.

 

What's the appeal of the wooden panels?

I really don't want to go down the Alden route for a black dress shoe... so I was thinking maybe a black derby?  Would be different (I think?) and also fill a void in my closet--not really my style though--and I know next to nothing about them.

Anyone recommend anything?  Affordable too...

You could get a pair of Andrew Lock (CM side affiliate) black cap toe bals for < $300. It would be useful beyond the wedding, although in a CM kind of way. I have a brown pair that I'm happy with.
