It was an incredibly stupid comment, wasn't it?
I really wonder if people are unanimous in condemning current Rick Owens leather? I was lookign into getting a high end leather jacket, and was thinking about one of his--but now I'm wondering.
And, just to totally contradict what I just said, I just picked up a black lamb MMM T-3, more or less totally blind, on the basis that it is an MMM leather. This is generally not a good purchasing strategy. Shall see when it arrives whether it is a pass or fail...
justin beiber rocks RO as well if that makes any difference... don't read too much into my comment, women / men, RO makes great stuff, but catered to another audience nowadays. If you're looking for a 'bad ass' leather jacket, you can do much better with more interesting cuts for much cheaper. boris bidjan saberi makes awesome jackets if you want something wild or you can even go TOJ for something simple and minimal at an even better price. I tried on a few of the new RO jackets at maxfields the other day and i found most of the jackets rather boring and the sizing is not particularly flattering.
Yo, Reedo, if you're still looking for cheap basic derbies with slight toe bulbage, I found this pair on Yoox:
All I know about the company is they make their stuff in Italy, but the last looks pretty nice
Damn, these do look pretty nice. Wonder if they run TTS, smallest size is a 10...
If you just want to throw on a leather over t, black jeans and boots, you can do worse than a Rick leather, if you pick one of the better styles and get the fit right. A bad fitting Rick leather is a hot mess from hell.
those are cool whats the sizing like
