CKC L fit me perfectly so I dunno the issue Teg's.
post #76697 of 99918
There's a couple of fabrics that yoox stocks, I think. I have an L in the thinner fabric that's really too small, and I tried an XL in a different fabric that was too big.

also there's a good chance the sizing is just inconsistent from item to item. i got a blazer from gilt that fit huge compared to the one I have from yoox

One of the only instances where Uggs maybe ok for dudes is after a surfing session. I'm pretty sure that was their original, intended purpose.

Being into different styles is a good thing (assuming it's not just hype), it gives you different point of views, different ways of approaching the brands you like, outside of their usual setting. Take advantage of this, find a common thread between Rick and Schneider (or... or...), a backbone for what you want to do, something that allows you to integrate a wide variety of items without compromising the whole thing by making you look like a circus freak. As long as you're not trying to work repp ties into Rick outfits it's more than likely doable, brands don't need to overlap to be compatible (and most are). Imagine a coherent continuum between extreme dropcrotch and boring minimal tailoring, then own that continuum, live in it. The reward is in the process (too).

 

 

 

Great comment. I think sometimes we have a tendency to obsess over singular brand/designers that we lose sight of creating an original personal style. A lot of the best dress guys I see mix stuff from various places -- diff. designers, basics, some vintage stuff. It doesn't mean your look has to be all over the place, but a more eclectic approach gives you some freedom to still enjoy clothing and experiment without feeling like you have to totally bail on that avant-garde look if you feel like wearing something more soft or traditional.

I recently put together a grungy version of what might be a "Rick" out fit for someone using some very classic menswear/#menswear pieces. There was a grey Brunello Cucinelli down vest involved, um, some Drkshdw carrot leg jeans, some painted over Buttero hightops (actually, that was a really cool DIY project), a Dries van Noten skinny belt from last season, and a few tees layered - taupe longsleeve over a maroon thermal that was another DIY project - I think that it was a Buzz Rickson thermal, but it might have been Studio D'Artisan or something similar. An old but very classic menswear grey flannel shirt from Luciano Barbera was washed, wringed out and let dry thtat way, and tied at the waist. Sort of all in the melding of colors, textures, and proportions. I could have used most of the same pieces to do a sort of "generically handsome man" look, incidentally.

Also, I belt that a repp tie could be used in a Rick outfit. I could see it being overdyed and made into an double-O ring belt, for example

 

I think that's what I mean.

dunno bout when zara first had them but this misses the mark by a bit. Someone has to have a decent repro going for what something like that should be.

This. The white ckc hp shirt I have from yoox fits noticeably different from the grey stripe one I bought from yoox at the same time. Not a full size different or anything but just enough smaller in the chest and sleeves to be noticeable.
