Not at all, I dress because I want to look cool (fitting my idea of cool, that is). But if I'm walking around in a forest my focus is going to be on being able to easily move and enjoy the nature without worrying about my clothes getting dirty or snagged on trees.

i don't think you know what rural means eh.gif

how is it different than if you are, say, alone in your office. of course there's the time in transit when you may encounter people, but then it seems you are dressing for the sake of others and not your own appreciation for the garments.

and why is rural environment necessarily = alone in woods ?

i don't think most here care how they are perceived by others, or in the case of some, perceived by others outside the forum.

Obviously everyone here is just caught up in the wonder of my post making fun of A Restless Transplant and the glory of the woods and dismissing other non-urban enviroments.

FWIW that actually started off as a sincere effort to take some photos of the changes to our land in NH for my mom to see, then I decided to include a WAYWT, then I thought hey I can make a little series on SF like Shah, then I said fuck it and went all the way to get some content ready for my new site.

The Soloist stuff is wonderful. I'm not sure how many of the individual pieces I'd want, but the layering and accessories are inspiring, and the way he models the clothes himself is charming and cool.

Yeah I went to IF tonight to check out the stuff again after work before meeting up with a friend down there, and it's truly incredible. The pieces are great on their own but it's the styling in his lookbooks that makes it so perfect. It's just one of those lines that begs for more of itself, which means $$$

I'm trying to think of other ways of wearing it and I can see how most of it would work with Kolor, and maybe a few things with like Paul Harnden but I'm not sure what else beyond that.

Only thing less than $1k there was a certain sweater ($800), and some $450 pocket tees.

I wanted it all though so baddd

Honestly I think it's kind of comparable to a lot of the other stuff we gush about on here.

I mean those Julius and attachment jeans are $1000, right? So these $1000 pants aren't totally absurd, comparatively at least. I mean I think it's crazy but whatever. Outerwear was from 1500-2400 and that's kind of in the same league as a lot of other stuff.

I think the issue is that it benefits from more of the same, and layering too.

Hopefully if stores like oki-ni start carrying it, it'll become almost accessible during the sales. They probably won't stock the larger sizes though confused.gif

if you're stupidly rich and buy them in the US, yes. julius jeans are like $3-400 and attachment are anywhere from $150-350 in Japan.

I dont wanna detract from this threads purpose, but julius is probably the cheapest "goth-ninja" brand. If you proxy, which is brain dead easy. You have mbok and yahoo japan where I kop basics for around the same people pay for BoO basics, etc. Outerwear and shoes are up there, yes, but overall you can do ninja for the same amount people splurge on mr porter stuff..

Cool, good to know. I checked out prices on Japanese retailers and The Soloist stuff seems to be a bit less than the prices at IF, about 20-25% less. That seems par for the course for this sort of thing though. There is some used stuff on Rakuten for relatively cheap as well.

I want the beethoven sweatshirt so bad icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I think it would look good with what I wear
