Tobi sometimes has them for 30% off or TBS with codes is not bad price either. I wouldn't pay rrp because as rfx said they are just chucks with hearts painted on but they are hypnotic eyes for sure
these are exactly what I had in mind when I saw this thread hah I wore them in a few fits (and quite regularly over the summer, to be honest). I almost feel like getting a second pair just in case they stop production and mine fall apart, inevitable, as they are already showing wear vs mmm/cp
other brands I shan't mention.
a few very cheap to mid level fits with those:
i think backpack was most expensive item in these shots
(1st: dunno shirt, aa tank, uniqlo oversized+tapered trousers)
(2nd: brookbros xslim, random yoox trousers i love to wear always)
(3rd: not really plebe but duckshadow shorts i ended up selling but got in black now hehe)
but any aesthetic can be explored with little investment. f+b is i guess mid-level, despite higher retail (4-500) they are always on super discount end of season. NCB (long shirt / tunic, as well as coat) can be found for embarrassingly low prices on yoox, I think there may be 1 stockist in NYC but beware of the flair, he loves the dress-like exaggerations on all longer items. some good oversized shirts to be had for sure. and trousers, I have absolutely no idea, some short but not necessarily intentionally cropped unlined linen with busted zipper that i wear with longer shirts only
I think this is ok ?
i didn't mean for this to be a repository of ugly plebe fits by shah
just wanted to share some ideas about being creative with little expense. it's not hard (well, if you don't think those pics are hideous then it's not hard) to get some cohesion if you keep in mind what kind of fit you want, how fabrics can work together (of course will be more limited here since not dealing with weird things like boiled ___, or luxuriously soft alpaca, etc). and sticking to a certain number of colors and/or patterns -- I believe the fuuma rule is no more than 5 different ones.
anyway, just must long-winded two cents
edit: the thread title is no fun, it should include something with the poor pauper's sartorial adventures: we are the 99%
and not ever have anything to do with swag. Edited by the shah - 12/19/11 at 6:17pm
