Previous level -- but dope.
Hopping in late here (and I am a rare poster) but a big fan of the oversized look. Some additions:
Comme Des Garcons Hommes Plus 1985 S/S
Women do this so well:
This thread is hella good! Thanks Toothsome!
Raf SS04 (May the circle remain unbroken)
(I know you said no to Raf, but this is one of my favs so I posted anyway. I don't like Raf anymore so I don't read the thread.)
And some Bernhard Willhelm for kicks:
This thread is making me regret not buying the photo history book of fishing in Maine I looked at over the summer.
x-post from waywt, featuring oversized coat and wide trousers (though you can't really tell about the pants from the picture)
you call that wide psshh
Hah compared to most of my other pants, definitely.
I'll try and get a better pic of that outfit someday soon with derbies instead (and probably a turtleneck too)
Official Slim Straight Thread
Maybe I'm off base here but I was watching this video today and thought of this thread.
It's pretty standard rap style I suppose, I know there were some images of wu-tang posted last page, but Diplomats always represented a very specific time (early to mid 00's) and place (NYC, Harlem) for me, and I think they really owned the look in a much more significant and unified way. They pushed it to it's peak to the point that right after these guys fell from grace everyone in rap changed to much more "fashion-y" designers; as if they were saying, "OK, Dipset owned that look and we'll never be as on-point as them, so let's try something different from now on..."
And to me, that's a very strong statement for their power in their aesthetic; a thing that many professional (even successful) designers struggle achieving in their careers, so credit must be given where credit is due.
Again, maybe my head isn't on straight.
PS Make sure you watch the vid to the end. It's a 2-in-1 and the second part features Cam wrapped in a pink bandana bomber that's just beautiful.
ha I think I have those white ones on the left, inseam 40" leg opening over 20". strong proportions
oversize rap style totally on topic per original post. same with supergraphics and giant logos.
