no it does not. looks great nicely nice
Yeah I just wanted to show you can wear Rick outside of "Rick" situations. I don't wear Chinos, but I wear it with BoO and blue jeans or whatever
honestly, rick goes really well with rick and thats about it.
How nasty are Jofama's jackets? I'm not sure I'd wear a leather that often so don't want to drop too much cash, but I'm semi-tempted.
dude, Man of Kent, people recommend each other brands ranging from ToJ, Aero, to Rick in this thread - if there was anybody who should get an Aero, it's you. It's gonna fit your frame well, match with your wardrobe, be of the right weight and detailing to really look right, and it's a brand from your part of the world....
^ +1, but Aeros are 350-500 pounds, and MoK seems like he doesn't want to drop that kind of coin on something he may not wear often. Leather used by Aero, LW, Goodwear, etc. needs to be worn daily/almost daily to feel and look right.
i see that I guess, but I checked out Jofama, never even heard of it before, but they're all pretty nasty looking and overdetailed, and from the styles I saw, MoK wearing one of them would look worse than the Rick Intarsia over chinos and Aldens. I would think if he bought something like that as an experiment it might turn him off leather jackets for good, whereas if he got something that really meshed with his style he'd find his niche... I can see it working nicely.
Thanks (and Moo) - yes comparing the Aero stuff with the Jofama there's no contest. I probably need to think about how much wear I would give one and not go cheap if I decide it's enough...
an ugly red leather blazer? no thx
Having met Mr. Kunk I can say that now that he's lost some muscle mass he wears RO very well. Problem with his picture is they're taken at a weird angle and don't show he's quite tall.
WTF, did the guy re-do his entire wardrobe? Even then it's more like a shopping addiction...
I understand when people get a lot of pieces because they're, say stylists or designers or whatever and they archive, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.
Rule 23 of the Fuuma guide to dressing well: don't buy too much stuff or you'll end up being barbies with her 10,000 costumes. Am I a lumberjack today or a WWII pilot or a ninja assassin?
I like this one a lot right now
This is dumb, very dumb. You need to think a little about how a certain item fits with other stuff you own. You do this through two main dimensions:
1) Connotations: you categorize it so you know what it makes you and other people think of. It will never be the exact same thing but you want to identify a certain area.
2) Physical characteristics: is it a leather or what, what ae its proportions, how does it go with my body and other articles of clothing.
If you don't do that (it doesn't need to be a formal exercise) chances are you dress like shit.
That's cool, gdl. Very minimal. so, no snaps on the lapels, no breast zip pocket. what else is gone from the regular DR?
