    b)

    (pretty much guaranteed it'll look better on me than it does on the model)


    c)
    [​IMG]


    or d) none of the above


    It's pretty much guaranteed I'd get a ton of wear out of C now that it's 90 degrees in Philly nearly half the year. B is probably objectively the coolest, but A would be nice during the three months out of the year it never stops being below freezing, plus I've tried it on before and I know it'll fit me well..

    Todd Snyder. The collar looks a little more normal with the top button undone.

    would I ever wear a white MA-1? I like it conceptually but then I think how grungy it will get at my local dive bar or on the subway. although maybe that is the charm, like banged up white sneakers.

    Grunge it up and have Synthese pen you a quick backstory about being a deserter storm trooper who became disillusioned with imperial ideology and is now living the fear-and-loathing life on a distant star system.

    As a serial non blazer wearer i'm considering its time to right that wrong.

    I wear a lot of indigo denim so it needs to go with jeans.

    My first stabs are one of these, any preference for a 40 something smart kahj

    I like the idea, although I imagine it'll just get really grungy at the ribbing. Rick Owens DRKSHDW had a one a few seasons ago. Forum favorite Kanye wearing it: [​IMG]

    you could definitely work it. . . . . and, funny, I asked about this very thing a few pages back. I have some pics of myself wearing the one I was considering. it is gone now.

    but there is a white 5zip on yoox for too much money, and I been thinking about that instead.

    The biggest challenge will be accumulating the right kind of grunge. Ambiguous dirt smear like below? Cool. Mustard? Maaybe [​IMG]
    The texture on the first one is way more interesting.

    I like the first blazer better, but as your first blazer purchase I think number two would be better as you can mix and match it with more things. What about plain navy unstructured? I wear one with denim a lot.

    This would probably be kind of stupid, but I already have the matching pants for this jacket and I kinda want to go for the full suit:

    Color IRL is a bit more like this picture:

    Balenciaga SS11 lightweight quilted gilet, looks awesome but measurements provided by seller look very slim (sz44, chest 42cm!!!). Hoping to find someone who's actually tried this on in-person and can comment on the fit. Seller's measurement could have been taken at the bottom of the armhole though which looks quite low in pics.
    @conceptual 4est I somewhat remember you posting about this in the eBay thread at some point, any chance you ever got to try it on in-person?

    I remember that one!!!!! So dope, especially if you wear other cool tech stuff. Fits TTS but slim, - that model is probably wearing his correct size. I imagine you would have to be very skinny to wear a size 44...

    only thing I am concerned about is the front of the boot in the middle would that fill out and look normal with a foot in it?
