If we are faithful to lifting and fashion equally, we should be wearing Rick Owens. Here's one of the interviews where he discusses working out and such. I know he's done so other places as well. He also once said his coats are big enough to accommodate travel - I specifically remember him saying he made a lot of jackets with big pockets so people could fit, amongst other things, a sandwich. Gotta love it.

Vice: Most important question first. You are fantastically ripped. I mean, you’re shredded. Cut. Sculptural. What’s the deal?
Rick Owens: I’m not really into clothes. I wear one outfit like a uniform, and I have for years. Black sweatpants, black baggy shorts over them, a black or white cotton t-shirt, and a black cashmere t-shirt over that. I couldn’t imagine having to change outfits every day or having to change for the gym.

You wear the same thing to the gym too?

This outfit takes me to the gym, to work in the studio, and then to dinner with a mink coat over it.

So for you it’s more about working on your physique than worrying about what to wear?

Changing your body is so much more hardcore. The extreme sensation of working out has replaced the mosh pits of my earlier years and the sex clubs for years after that. It’s a great combo of discipline, joyous release, meditation, and vanity. Music never sounded as good as it does now, pounding through those earbud headphones into the pit of my stomach as I feel my muscles swell.

Your life in LA seemed like a bit of a dingy fairy tale full of fantastical characters and drugs and booze. Today, you’re ostensibly still living what we plebes see as kind of a fairy tale. There’s the five-story mansion on the Place du Palais-Bourbon and the sculpture of yourself pissing fake urine. What’s the biggest difference between the LA version of the Rick Owens mythology and the Paris version?

Probably not much. It’s still a triangle of gym, working at home, and dinner down the street. All the old faces come through Paris sooner or later, and other than that I’m on the road a lot more than I used to be.

So there you have it. We should all be wearing RO to the gym like Kunk. Seriously, though. That shit is comfy.

At what weight does chalk become appropriate said swag, say for DL's?

I'm slightly above ~300lb x 5 reps on DL and my grip is close to giving way. I've very against straps, but chalk might be ok. But I still feel I've gotta be 400+ to not look like a dumb dick using chalk.

It's unproductive to miss a pull because your hands are sweaty no matter what the weight, IMO.

Also, if you're going to miss reps due to grip, put on straps, then do a static hold with the weight. Why not work your whole body just because your grip sucks?

What's the sizing like on those Mag? (Also, if you get too swole want to get rid of them? haha)

If your gym allows chalk, use it. There are no rules for when it's appropriate or not. Fact of the matter is that if you indeed want to have a decent grip on deads, chalk is a must.

That happens to be my approach, and static holds with a thick bar are awesome

I can almost guarantee you I'm poorer then you. I just happen to have a few holdovers from my glory days as a Barneys SA. @GN. I will be thrilled if that happens anytime soon but don't hold your breath. Sizing is all over the map but my stuff fits my true 48 frame well.

Should been more specific, I'm not slipping because of grip/tendon strength, but from sweat.

I've got tons of chalk from my rock climbing days so I spose I may as well.
