hi guys.

due to a number of alarming and extremely basic posts in the RFT thread, my hand has been forced.

I open this emporium to beautiful, wild and strange shit. please feel free to join me in unleashing upon the simple befuddled dudes of this forum any and all examples of unconventional, enormous coats and jackets, old man steeze, flowing (but not goth-ninja) oversized garments, and potentially questionable vintage or recent prints, patterns, or styling.

This is the thread in which we explore the intersection of oversized silhouettes, streetwear, obscene bold and interesting graphics logos and labels, and unusual, silly, gross or sophisticated clothing details that would make responsible buyers gasp and leave your average fashion bro unimpressed, head-scratching and/or dumb founded.

While I welcome you guys to post some of the usual suspects (Yohji, Issey, Comme, mid 2000's Raf, some Dries etc) there are specific threads for most of that, so I'd like to encourage people to post relatively lesser known stuff. However I'm not gonna argue with some good Yohj in here so don't be shy!

I will start us off with some choice cuts. I also chose not to use any runway shots in this initial post but I welcome those as well.

That Acne fit above looks interesting from the side too.

80's Armani is so good. It's unreal. Does anyone make that silhouette these days? Real silent killer steez. Real ninjas would wear.

For a time, post backlash Damir had some similarities with 80s Armani, it's an avowed influence after all (much to the chagrin of many). Who knows what he's doing these days...


That Vanotti guy has some stuff that would look right at home in those Armani shoots.

oh man, then lucio vanotti has something for you as well-- for fw15 he made some oversized jackets and trousers using a really wide-wale cord fabric. the corner doesn't have any of it (yet?), but check out guya firenze
