Me too actually. Still, same applies to Westwood/Malcolm Mclaren. They were totally cashing in on what the bands in New York were doing, and if you read about the New York scene you learn that they didn't use safety pins because they were cool. They used them because they had no money and their clothes were falling apart. Though Richard Hell, who was probably most influential in creating a punk look, did wear ripped up stuff just because he was weird. The English are the ones who really $old it as a uniform though.

Ultimately any super expensive clothes that mimic poverty have some inherent irony. I'm not set against it or anything. I still wear it sometimes. Well, if I can afford it.

True. But that was really straight grunge (you know, flannels, etc). Grunge was exactly when corporate America co-opted the underground, so it's kinda appropriate.

Sipang IS in the air. He is all around us. Like God. And no one has ever seen either.

Oh definitely. Was speaking more to the materials/quality aspect of the jean. But even japanese denim brands that model their stuff on the 19cm fit can't seem to nail it.

you could assemble an almost identical outfit from brands that are very good quality and about a tenth the cost. CCP is only really worth it if you have the cash and a hard-on for all the weird details

Selling my MDR, but I don't know what to replace it with.

SF hivemind... go.

like, what do you want? another leather jacket?
post #75135 of 109053
Something far les edgy, that's for sure. I like wearing black, and I like wearing a biker jacket; but I don't have the wardrobe to fully support that yet. Hell, I think a ToJ bball would be a nice replacement (it's more casual, looks better with blue jeans than a black leather does). However, I'm always interested to see if anyone might suggest something that hasn't come up on my radar yet.

Leather would be nice, but I'm open to suggestions for something wool as well.

This n(n) by number nine from f/w '12 is nice, but I'd have to proxy it from Japan (haven't done that before).
