    That Juun J shows how oversized fits shine when there is movement.

    my problem with oversized clothing is that you generally need to be really good looking and in good physical shape for it to work. Like anything (and why there are models to help sell the clothing), but I think its particularly hard to pull off otherwise. I've taken a huge liking to lemaire recently because the look is very striking but i know in reality it won't come off as cool (ala yohji)

    This is sort of a useless aside, but 2/3 years ago I remember seeing Juun J in person for the first time and just being blown away by how cool it looked in the flesh. The giant weird stuff just looks so awesome when it's on a person. I would love a massive MA-1, but I really don't have the wardrobe for it. Cool stuff, for sure.

    Also, Final Home.???

    I remember a guy with the user name Neofinitia used to post on here who had a lot of cool loose-fit stuff like this, some Juun.J pieces too. Would like to see what he is up to these days.

    I like Final Home, but the quality is nowhere near as good as any of my designer stuff. I want to try that perforated air jacket they made last year (I think it was their last collection?).

    Enjoying all the photos people are posting here.

    Back in my "streetwear" days, Final Home and Griffin (do you guys remember that brand?) were my jam. The external label with the logo that looks vaguely like a "Danger: radioactivity" is right for a post apocalypse tech warrior.

    great stuff everybody.

    I disagree with this. Nick Wooster is a tiny guy, Justin Dean is not very tall...Just look at basically any Japanese buyer/blogger/fashion person. A lot don't have model proportions (and most are not particularly conventionally handsome) but they rock the fuck out of this stuff.

    If you are short/stocky/burly but understand your sizing and proportions, give some ovesized stuff a try. Granted I am 5'11 and on the skinnier side, but I think you'll find that this stuff is actually way less difficult than you might think.

    basic bros gonna base

    one thing though, bigger garments are deff more comfy. thicker, heavier fabrics help the drape and shape too.

    Wasn't that long ago when oversized everything wasn't just for the runway and lookbooks.
