Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2829

Both are great.
I would go with the first ones judging from those pictures. It looks like the frame is slightly thinner with not as round shape. They look more oval. But maybe it is just the angle.

Have you tried them or a similar style on? With eyewear I have found that what I like is not necessarily what I look good in, because of face shape, features, etc.

If your morphology makes it so that that slim jeans cling to you, well, get larger jeans. I'm slim enough that if I wear slim jeans the fabric isn't molding my calves or whatever. SLP users frequently fall in that trap and the result is sad to behold.


Note: Slim jeans are kinda uncool now too but hey, I was speaking in more generic terms about how well they'd fit body types.

@conceptionist

thanks, to be honest I haven't, don't know much about sunglasses.  I have high-ish cheekbones, low nose bridge (hence nose pads), smallish face that is apparently somewhat square.   There's a ton of (an overwhelming amt actually) of options from Mykita and I haven't really seriously looked into other makers.  

 

I gravitated towards the Margiela collab since the prices are basically the same and it looks like a slightly updated aviator which seems like it would work for a lot of people but I don't know really

Round frames are said to generally be well suited for people with sharp face structures, such as high cheekbones, square jaw, etc, so it sounds like those could fit you. With that said I think it would be best for you to first visit a regular shop to just try some different shapes. I was for instance surprised that wide square frames were the most flattering on me.

Sure but then you're left with a pretty flimsy generic black/white fishtail, no ?

If by flimsy you mean its fabric, as I said I tried on the black version of that coat in store. Didn't feel flimsy to me, or anyway not any more than what you would expect (and want) from an unlined cotton spring/summer piece. In fact, while I don't think Raf is always very successful with fabrics, I think he tends to do best with cotton.

It's a bit of a lost cause around here to advocate later-period Raf Simons, but I still think that he does silhouettes and colors better than just about any other currently active designer, which is what I liked about this coat (and also patterns, but that doesn't apply here). If you think it's generic, how many other pure white fishtail parkas have you seen this summer in other designers' collections, or in high-street store windows? I don't remember seeing a single one, to me that doesn't say generic. I'm not sure however that what makes Raf's garments stand out IRL always translates very well in a photo, or maybe the models the retailers' stylists throw these items on don't have the bodies to wear them well, I don't know. I have noticed though that almost all my Raf items attract (positive) looks IRL, including those that look plain, pointless or outright silly online. Flared pants for instance, which nobody does better than Raf. I wore a pair of flared dress pants to work yesterday and never felt self-conscious or out-of-place for a second, which is quite a feat for a designer to perform in an age when literally every guy around you wears the same tapered-below-the-knee silhouette, whether it's jeans, suit pants, slacks, chinos, whatever.

Raf fishtails are, as a rule, pretty light and not that nice TBH.
