    The pic is amusing enough on its own, I suppose, but it's the socks that transcend it to a work of art.

    i can't believe rambo's bullshit is slowly creeping into the SW&D thread. just a strange mix of self-effacement, really depressing tone and polyanna-esque negativity. there are literally DOZENS of high end brands that will make a jacket for your frame - just read the entire SUFU forum. you can probably just buy a fucking A1 repro jacket from the us navy store and that'll fit fine too.

    Haaa. A little background on the fit: I took the pic after work once I received the package. I was initially wearing boots and a sweater so the penguin shirt was just an undershirt. Non visible. Once I took the first pic I decided to unzip the leather and also take my shoes off because I was getting ready to head out again. Hence the penguin shirt and green/gray socks. For what it's worth, the socks and shirt match. :slayer:

    Namor, I'm going to give you one simple piece of advice - barring something fleece, nothing Rick Owens is going to fit your frame. Rick's stuff looks best, or rather, only looks good, on people with zero ass. You can compromise with everything else, but having any booty, that will not do, no unless you are trying to accentuate it. The cuts of his jackets are elongated in the front, and often quite short in the back.

    I'm not sure why you are obsessed with his shit. Seriously, even the other "goth ninja" brands would suit you better. MA+ will look fine, if you can find a size big enough. Incarnation, if they make a XXXXXXL, will fit you. (I am a 48-50EU, and the XL is tight on me). Backlash will fit you (not really "goth ninja," but close enough. If you can find the size, Viridi-Ann stuff, might work. Isaac Sellaam (sp?) will fit you. Haute would fit you. However, not because they don't make your size, but because of your shape, Rick will never fit you. You know what? It's cool. Rick will not fit me either. Now go get some Margiela or something.

    I suggest he take a hint from the MC guys, who often justify any outfit lacking a pocket square by using terms such as "Casual Friday" or "Saturday Errands". Perhaps similar terminology could be applied to aid his inner ninja into accepting a proper biz casual outfit while at work.


    As I see it, you have three choices: gay fashion model, ninja, or lobotomized cubicle drone.

    From reading your posts, I feel it's likely your co-workers already think you're gay. But if you go full RO on them, then you'll be seen as a ninja. How cool is that?! Cubicle drone, let's not go there.

    just because you buy RO doesnt mean your dress sense has to fit the RO aesthetic...it looks like just another leather jacket if you dress ordinarily, but meh, it's your money
    personally i don't see anything outrageously wrong with that pic although it would help if you hid your butt lol

    nicely: did u get the latest elmendorf? the leather looked great on that one!

    Nah man. I'm skipping the goth ninja phase and going straight to Star Wars shit. Look for a cape and light saber. You'll know it's me when you see the Ravello colored light saber. Bbbzzzzzing
