At this point, and being a foreign (EE) transplant, I'd like to ask - what is the definition of a douche-bag and associated clothing / lifestyle?
Why are Diesel, 74AM, Puma getting no love? If they have no garish logos / stitching - I am struggling to understand. I have / wear them, and right now my black 74AM Standard jeans w/ minimal black stitching are probably my best fit. My current daily beater jeans are Paper, Denim and Cloth japanese ring x ring - are these "approved"? I am waiting on a pair of Sugar Canes to replace them - since they have a python patch I think they are a bit douchey, but I don't tuck so it won't be seen.
For reference - never wear polos from Lacoste or RL with the ubiquitous logo, as well as their button downs, same for Penguin, etc. Also - and this may be heresy here: the bright and prominent stitching on some Nudies turns me off too
As for my pieces for this thread: I guess A&F Bar Star or something straight wide leg pre-distressed jeans and some huge-soled KCole slip-ons from 6 or so years ago. Glad to say haven't worn either in 5 years. Oh, sure - the occasional Versace shirt gift - worn once... Ops, French Connection - I have some of this, bought several years ago (sans the stupid prints and logos) Oh, one more - A/X black Pima T with A/X nailhead logo, this would surely be considered douchey...
Crap, I seem to have lots of this stuff
Haha - just found my ultimate piece (year is 2005) - this is a Custo Barcelona wife-beater T with naked ladies and fish scales in foil in the background
