This'd be a really cool project, I'm actually going to send a coat away to be dyed soon (using sumi ink, not indigo) - I'll ask them about dyeing leather when I do. Maybe start with a natural belt. Could possibly inquire about sourcing horse leather from shinki, make an entirely "Made in Japan" jacket. I personally think an indigo horse type 3 would be killer

Goth-ninja is threatening in a 'I wonder if this weirdo trust fund kid is going to try to stab me because of some manifesto he read on the internet' kind of way.

Does goth ninja attract the ladies? I've seriously wondered this when considering the look. I have the personality, demeanor to do it, I just don't want to look like a freak (to the opposite sex). I'm thinking moto guy is more approachable?

I'd totally wear this, thanks for bringing info about the brand here.

Absolutely.

 

For bonus points, I'd also be sure to immediately mention to any prospective ladies that you go by the handle "clotheshorse69" on a men's internet forum.

I believe it's been said a number of times and in a number of ways that if this is your main concern, don't bother with what's discussed on SF.

 

Just go to the gym, get ripped, and wear whatever the hell you want.

 

Having said that, it's like any other aesthetic: depends on how you wear it, who you're trying to attract, and how good looking you are to start out with.

It really depends on the girl you're trying to attract. If she owns anything by Rick Owens Lilies, then yes. Unfortunately for you, if she owns anything by Rick Owens Lilies, then she will know you are faking it instantly.

Working out is modern couture. No outfit is going to make you look or feel as good as having a fit body. Buy less clothing and go to the gym instead. — Rick Owens

I just imagine Michelle Lamey feeding Rick croissants with that gold grill bite already out of them and then I do 50 more pull ups.

Personally dislike the belt, but it looks removable. Brand also looks very Hedi/ Kanye trendy, which may turn some people off.

Reminds me of the Acne Gibson, which doesn't have a belt.

 

 

Personally not my bag. Seems unbalanced to me without the upper lapel press studs. I find it to be way too cropped for my taste.

A friend just sold me an AllSaints DR for $100 so I couldn't pass it up. Have no idea what the story is behind this brand but although it feels cheap it fits pretty amazing.
