This seasons t shirts from McQueen and Dior

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Those of you who know what I am talking about, which of the McQueen and Dior Homme t-shirts would you buy? Personally, I'm thinking that I'm going to go for the Dior white t with a black guitar on it, with a creased effect, and the McQueen yellow print t. What do you guys think of these. Would you go for any other brands, or any others from the same brands. I don't wear t-shirts much, I usually get 3-4 per summer season, and the price is not too important, because I'm only getting 3-4.

I like the Dior tee shirt you're refering too (- I thnk - there seem to be at least 2 variations on that shirt), but it seems really, well, David Beckham-esque (not a compliment, btw) to put down that type of money for a tee that has been all over the runways and in "look books". I guess the concept of "money is not an issue" just comes off very Euro-trashy to me, especially when it comes to streetwear stuff. Put on that tee, and match it with Dolce & Gabbana jeans, Tods loafers, and Paul Smith sunglasses, and I'd expect that you'd be hitting on a Lohan in the near future. Not a big fan of much of McQueen's stuff, I'm afraid. I would go with something a lot cheaper and less over-exposed. Check out the Yoko Devereaux tees for something in the designer range - and the label is an up and comer too, if you are interested in that type of thing.

Yes. Possibly, Its not that I am just blowing the money though. I will only buy the 2 t-shirts this season, as I have to spend most of the week in business wear. The only chance I will have to wear them is perhaps a walk in Hyde Park or round the Mountains in Geneva with my gf. So if you think they are nice, I will prob. go for it, because if I go for something cheaper, I will just end up buying several, and there is not much point to that IMO, because I could be wearing what I like better. Obviously, I'm not prepared to pay lpf prices though.

I believe he is referring to one Ms. Lindsey Lohan, an American actress. A.

Thanks Aaron, Lindsey Lohan is a B-list actress.  Maybe a more obvious reference would have been "And I might suspect that you are Kevin Federline (aka Mr. Britney Spears)." That said, if you are not going to over designer yourself, the Dior tees are pretty nice. If you want something a little more unconventional, why don't you try Wings and Horns, a Canadian company with some very interesting tees and hoodies and similar gear.

Any link to Wings and Horns, I'm in Canada and I've never heard about it. Original poster: Going with something this obvious will make you look like an old lady wearing a vuitton handbag and an hermes scarf. Nothing wrong with that but pretty stereotypical and won't get you noticed...

...wonderful. But it probably would get you noticed anyway. I hate how each time I see another girl with the GD LV bag, I still notice.

Out here, there is usually a Chihuahua peaking out from that LV bag. Hard not to notice.

This is my take on the McQueen T look:

It's pretty much a clubbing only ensemble, though I have worn it to convert venues, too.

I can never tell when people are joking on here.

The semaphores say "Get Jiggy Wit It" Sorry about the mess. Same kid?

Most people here seem to detest graphic Ts, so if thats your thing, this might not be the place to ask. I think the general concensus around here is to just buy cheap blank t-shirts and save your money for nicer jeans or button down shirts. If cost is truly not an obstacle, check out N. Hoolywood or Wings + Horns. Even for casual-wear many people from here opt for button down shirts in more of a classic americana style. If you're into more european Diorish labels, superfuture might be a place to check out. Dior was mega popular over there a year or two back, but there is still a little bit of a remnant following. Most people have moved onto labels that are a little more obscure but offer basically the same garments. http://www.superfuture.com/
