Diane Arbus gets extremely advanced
reminded me of this thread
I like the Soloist poncho thingys, not sure I'm advanced enough though
Any examples of it done with lighter fabric? I'd like to imagine how it could work in warmer climates.
I've always found that choice of fabric and fabric quality weight play a big part in making oversized clothing look awesome.
See everything the arabs wear
As for designers.. Maybe thamanyah?
someone get this and revive this thread
My fledgling attempt at advancing.
It's been pointed out to me, reasonably enough, that these trousers are khakis. And that may make them much less advanced than I was hoping. It's interesting to wear something so generously cut anyway. Funny looking through this thread though. I could clearly go even bigger/wider.
Yeah bigger! Wider! Maybe something like this. E. Tautz does a good voluminous khaki.
That guy looks skeptical. I like him.
Here's one from Mister Mort's instagram, with vintage khakis. I think the crop works, plus this guy's general vibe is cool. I was thinking of picking up a pair of repro style khaki's from what price glory, maybe sizing up a bit too, to get this look.
I think the crop does work well there. I like how the top half fits as well. They guy definitely has a vibe.
The khakis in my photo above are from WPG (hi @thefoxtooth). I might try getting them hemmed a little on the short side like this. They are plenty high rise as well, which I like.
The other thing is that cotton khaki's work better with warm weather looks, for the most part. I think could pair some full pleated flannels with that Moscow coat.
Looking good @FrankCowperwood ! It's funny, I got very little love for the WPGs but now everyone seems to be talking about them all of a sudden. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention before.
I like rolling mine up when I want a little floodwater vibe. I'm looking forward to wearing them with some dope-ass aloha shirts I got Boxing Day (tucked in of course to show off the rise).
