it's fine, wtf guys. just because one tailored yet casual outfit could have been improved by a "sluttier" shirt doesn't mean you need to apply that to every tailored casual look from here on out.
No catchall rule is being applied here. And I probably missed the "one" outfit you are referring to, but I think his outfit lacks punch which could very well be supplied by a more dramatic shirt. or a nice tailored one. Either way would work, pick a lane (I know I know "who's Ellaine?")
One of the interesting things happening in menswear IMO is the unraveling of the connection between tailoring and formality. Like, it's totally fine now to wear tailored stuff in "casual" contexts (though the opposite is much less true). Folks are discovering that things previously meant for specific contexts can be re-appropriated and still look good-- e.g. the presence of a blazer doesn't require all this other stuff that has traditionally accompanied it
yeah watch me raaaamble
Is it just me or has every non troll post you have ever made been about blazers and every fit you've ever posted included a blazer?
There's a second-wave feminist inside of me who, in a perverse reactionary sort of way, really loves the thought of describing men and their clothing as "slutty."
But then I remember that second-wave feminism is dumb.
Beats post-modern tumblr-wave feminism, where your fit is automatically bad because of your cis-privilege.
Obviously there's nothing crazy or even particularly unique about a raglan sleeve, mixed materials bomber-style jacket, and I'm sure there are plenty of designers who offer this or something similar. I'm not trying to imply that Kazuyuki Kumagai borrowed from ToJ, or is even necessarily aware of its existence. IIRC, Drew never claimed that his designs were unique at their most basic level, just refined and updated takes on classic styles (e.g., rider-style and bomber jackets with modern fits and high-quality materials and construction). The picture just kinda jumped out at me when I was scrolling through the collection.
Looks a lot like every other mixed wool and leather varsity-ish jacket to me, though obv with a zipper. They've been going strong for a few years -- earliest one I remember is Vince from around fw09 (though I'm sure they weren't first) and now Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Viktor & Rolf, Simon Spurr, etc ad infinitum are on the bandwagon every season.
