(Old) What Are You Wearing Now/Today? Part II - pictures only - no discussion - Page 597  

post #8941 of 38322
thanks redgrail - nope they're not raws, they're 21 cm black overdyed blue jeans. they did turn out a bit baggier than my other 21 cms, but apparently men.style.com in their Dior jean review cleared up that for Hedi's last season DH jeans became fuller cut...so i guess the dior silhouette isn't really there anymore, it's just a regular jean but i like the effect of the treatment... thanks jet - the texture is a very soft wool gabardine, perfect for spring (and i'm pretty sure summer as well since you're in LA where it's mostly mild). if i take 10 different pics of the pants it'll look different in every one because they flow around with the slightest movement...makes for a nice effect when you're walking, as if you were on the runway or something - not quite as feminine/flowy as silk, but as far as wool gab goes i've yet to see one softer to the touch. Yohji does a similar pant pretty much every spring/summer so if you were to get in touch with the Japan shop i'm sure you'd find something similar. hope this helps.

The last two posts I have seen by you I have thought "he looks pleasant".

More younger people should dress like this.

What I am saying is that if those were forum-approved clothes, posters would react differently. I mean, the fit on the shirt wasn't bad.

no
that looked like a typical college bro pic
it is horrible regardless of the brands
the cut/distressting of those jeans is horrible
the shirt was horrible
the overall styling is horrible
the white sneakers seemed OKAY... upon closer inspection im sure they'd be horrible too

The proportions of the clothes are clearly not terrible.

However... the t-shirt and necklace in the second pic are terrible, and the combination of the "Trigger" with the New Era cap make me want to break your index fingers off. Also, 1997 called and wants its black shirt with faded jeans back.

Yes, wearing a New Era fitted baseball hat at a retarded angle with stickers intact makes you a hypebeast/tool. I'm not anti fitted caps. I own one from my favorite NCAA school. It's a solid red and the brim has been lovingly curved using the old baseball/water/belt method. I wear it when playing or watching sports.
Hats at dumb angles with loud patterns and flat brims are baseball caps reduced to something completely non-functional. I hate everything it stands for. It's taking an item that is completely rooted in functionality, something that moulds to the wearers head, and turning it into a peacock feather. It's the antithesis of what people like Margiela are doing with deconstructing traditional items and making them new, for example. It's not recreation - it's destruction.

And those honeycombs are wack. I'm sorry. They look visibly fake and stupid.

PS: I want to see those 9 month old SDAs
PPS: Fade to Black - I would love to see that treatment up close, if that's possible. I haven't seen the black overdyes. Sounds pretty cool.

Interesting shoes. I've not heard of that brand before; do you know anything about it?
post #8951 of 38322
Yes- They're a family owned company in Northern Italy that makes hand crafted shoes.. I like their aesthetics because it's unique. They're built like tanks. http://www.bettaninshoes.com/en/storia00.html

I like the shoes, also I have to ask Maharlika are you of asian heritage? You are built quite roboust but you look a bit like an asian from time to time. I understand if you don't want to answer the question.
post #8953 of 38322
Hugo-- Thanks for your shoe compliment. No, I don't mind at all, I'm proud of my Asian heritage. Yes, I am of Asian heritage hence my name Maharlika Maha is a Sanskrit word that means 'high' as in Maha Yoga. Lika means birth. Physically, I'm mesomorphic in build so I have broad shoulders, small waist and strong calves . I use to swim competitively and now I do my daily Hatha Yoga practice. I've always enjoyed fitness. Wish you could return us the favor and post photos of yourself.

It's all in the name of STYLE and how we like to interpret it.

I really like this post.

I can't wait to finally start posting fits to see what Maharlika (and the rest of you) thinks
post #8955 of 38322
Maharlika is also one of the best dressed and nicest SF'ers to boot. I only wish i knew what he did for a living so I could do it and gain his money hat ; )
