Ha it's sort of tween's signature, he was inspired by Japanese streetwear lookbooks, iirc.

You're one of the first MCers to come here in a while with an actually positive approach, it seems like you're interested in what we do here which is cool. It takes a while to get accustomed to some of the styles here, but soon enough they'll have you inspired to branch out a bit yourself, you'll see biggrin.gif

I think people forget that GDL is a MC superstar also - yet people who respect his opinion there couldn't give two shits about anything here.

What was most telling about that experimental thread that Fok created was the difference in mindset.

While we're doing glasses talk, anybody know of frames like these that aren't like $700? Really into the metal / tort combo. Linda farrow does a similar one, but the pricing is not much better.

The first rule here is forget everything you know about rules.

it's gonna be hard to find something like that, but you might find something on warby parker or a similar site. if you have health insurance that can cover, maybe mykita.

Look for the Gregory Peck model by Oliver Peoples.

OP is just as expensive. glasses prices are so fucking whack, no appreciable difference between $100 frames and $700 ones.
post #79000 of 115955

Dude OP is like half the price and can be had on ebay for $200

 

I've bought OP sunglasses direct for $350

idk, to me only the jacket looks shiny, which i think is fine. small gleam on the thigh of the jeans, but i bet thats the lighting.

not sure how persols are considered around here, but i have a pair and i love em. these are kinda similar, and can probably be found for anywhere from 129 to whatever full retail is, maybe 300 or so. they have other too, but nothing EXACTLY like what was in your link.

yeah, i guess that too, but it kinda goes along with the jacket. i think there is enough separation from the shirt and pants that it didnt strike me as a "shiny" look.
