    I'm pretty sure at least some and maybe all of these FoG supporters are shills. This is basically the exact same convo from a month ago with the exact same hyperbole about it being the best bomber in the world. Who says that kind of thing? Not even Rick or Yohji or Dries get that kind of praise.

    As for the bomber, I agree that it's just a really basic bomber that looks pedestrian from the front and ugly from the back, is way overpriced, and nowhere near good enough to convince me that all this praise is genuine.

    To each their own. I agree fog is way overpriced and I wouldn't drop a grand on it but people like to hate on the brand more than it deserved. You can line up all the bombers you mentioned, take the tags off and I still would take the fog. Why? The details. The weight, sleeve detail and puffiness of it is perfect. I mean come on, the ones you mentioned are over priced and even more basic.

    OG Helmut Lang bondage one probably gets the most "love" here.

    Probably a lot of new KTT, NT, HB posters.

    ETA: dude just called Rick, Yohji and Dries basic relative to FoG... srs?

    My apologies for the dirty dirty mirror. I whipped this picture up from 1.5 years ago when I grabbed onto this bomber, it was $675 I think. It's more like JE in a sense that it's thin, rather than a true bomber like FoG. Love this bomber and have gotten a TON of wear out of it that I have no regret spending the large lump some of money on it. The YKK zippers just don't do it for me anymore though, JEs got me soiled with the riris -.-
    Anyways, $995 for the FoG is mad pricey, but if you buy a legit piece, you'll be beating it to death for the next several years without wanting to/having the urge to upgrade. [​IMG]

    They look like Lebron 12 IDs. Correct me if I'm mistaken

    Those are LeBron 12 IDs.

    The other shoes in the previous picture are the premium AF1 Mids. They released in both the black and white colorways.

    For anyone who owns the co-mix tee in white, care to share your opinions on it? Thinking of pulling the trigger but no stockists near me to try it on. TIA

    It has a very slub appearance to the material. Which means you may be able to see your skin tone through the shirt in blouches. I personally love that look and I am a big fan of it. And this is coming from someone who never buys white t shirts

    If you remember john Elliott's prison tee, it's the closest thing that we have gotten to that IMO

    It's a raincoat. The AF1s are available on NikeLab.
