Yeah I feel ya. I'm a little weary of double layer shirts myself. Years ago I had a double layer james perse shirt (not that it's the same as a rick tee) that was great until it started pilling...in space between the layers....and then i was like wtf do you do about this lol

Really thin, single knit, long staple jersey like most Rick shirts tends to develop holes rather than pilling.

Finally got my grail python Geobasket, been wanting this for a while.

What's the name of the basic long sleeve fleece sweatshirts with the ribbed cuff? Is that the baseball sweatshirt? And was there a white/milk one this season? I thought I'd seen one on Ssense but it must have sold out. My Rick knowledge is super basic...

Someone on /fa/ said it was "Walrus" but no one (including me) believed it. A video posted on Rick's IG makes me think the person was right though haha.

They look amazing, nice pickup!

post #1867 of 2754

Could someone help me figure out which season my Geobaskets are from? I ordered them from Farfetch so the season wasn't listed. They're brand new with RiRi zips and the code inside is W16 1951. Does that mean they are from FW16?

post #1868 of 2754
They're definitely from '16. I'm not sure exactly what the letter indicates, as my Faun baskets say U 15. The easiest way is to look at the label on the barcode, which gives full information - top left of this one you can see RU15S.... Which indicates men's mainline 2015 SS. Mastodon will be _U16F

Also, riri zips?? This is the first time I've heard of Rick using those. That would be incredible.

Do you have any pictures of Rick items with RiRi zips? As far as I'm aware, he was strictly Raccagni up until around Plinth (with the massive Racc zips) and then switched over to mostly YKK on footwear and Racc on some DRKSHDW jackets. I heard that some mainline jackets from Mastodon had Racc again, but I've never heard of Rick & RiRi together.

Wow those look so much better than my YKK frown.gif (or is that just oxidation?)

post #1873 of 2754
It's just that one season of shoes really. Every season pre-plinth used regular sized Raccagnis (pic related), which don't look much different from the new YKK zips.

The biggest difference without looking at the logo is the rounder shape of the Raccs and the notch in the pull tab.

post #1874 of 2754
ah cool you're right those look almost identical. On another note, I wish they didn't supersize the tongues so much makes them even less wearable than they already were
post #1875 of 2754
I like the big 'ol tongue! It's so perfectly Ricky. Oversized is his thing, and the geobasket silhouette flows so well with that.

If you want a less bulky pair, look for short tongue geos (released in '12 and '09) - personally I don't think they work as well with full Rick, but they are better in more casual fits.
