  • Shearling Bauhaus is RO right?
  • MMM looks really boxy

Yup, Bauhaus = RO.

And yeah the Margiela looks boxy, model could probably use sizing down but it seems to be similarly cut to the 5zip which is still boxy by the shoulder but has a bit of taper?

Color of the Balmain is great.

You kidding right? where have you been lol? confused.gif

 

If anything Balmain to me has offered some of most sensible timeless leathers with a unique design compared to your other higher end designers out there, even though its price is almost double that of it's competitors.

 

Sure high necks/weird zipper placements/ excess zippers/ asymmetric designs are nice, but you aint gonna wear that gear when you're in your late 30s,early 40s, you'd look so out of place. But then again ...hey maybe when I reach that age I'll be one of those "guys" taking my kid out to get ice cream while looking like a baller, or "trying" to. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Having said, Balmain, BAM!.

^Lol

 

point accepted kind sir, worship.gif.

 

To discuss though, it is really a personal opinion anyway, I like to admit, I like buying specific items from higher end designers.

Regardless of my purpose for this instance it can be said by many, ones purchases are for the purpose of "appreciation of designer", "aesthetics/design", "I just want to be peacock" yadda yadda yadda. One really has to question, do I really fit into the category? does it suit me? this is where I think age comes to play.

 

It would be a complete lie for many to say, to drop 1k on a jacket and to say "I buy the clothes not caring what I look like"....but then of course this is a grey area.

 

So the question then... based on what I just said above, at what age should you learn to accept you are really too old? or maybe age will never come into play. I for one don't want to wear a leather jacket that literally covers half my face, paired with drop pants and Rick dunks when I'm 40, that is just me, but then who knows....only time will tell.

 

Sidenote: Could you imagine your father wearing all Avant Garde?

Just the thought of high tops with skinny jeans on a random old man with the hairline of a baby makes me cringe or just the thought of my friends fathers wearing what I consider clothing catered for younger people is kinda funny, it's like they are trying too hard to grasp hold of youth and not accepting the reality.

I think it's important to know your age - but moreso important to know what looks good on you and how you want to look.

 

It's easy to say now that you won't want to wear that when you're 50, but 50 year old you might not agree.

post #7886 of 12364
You're never too old to be well dressed, or have an interest in clothing. Particular styles lend themselves to different age brackets, but that shouldn't limit you. If you've got the swag, then why not?

While I couldn't see my dad wearing avant garde clothing, i can see him wearing an A2 leather quite easily at his age and beyond

Has RO done anything in suede?
post #7888 of 12364
Using Lenny Kravitz to illustrate how RO looks good on a 40 year old is akin to me saying angel wings and diamond encrusted bras look good on 40 year old moms (Heidi Klum)
post #7889 of 12364
Kravitz is actually 50 years old now (this year).
