    Serious question now: leather vests?

    Yes / Maybe / No / Are you fucking joking?

    I've seen some recent looks that carry off leather vests (see the picture), but I wonder if they are really always 'next level' only... if it doesn't derail the thread too much, if anyone has any pictures of what they consider good (or bad) examples, I wouldn't mind seeing them.

    Wait, there's two of you?

    I personally dislike the way these jackets look but I can see their place in the niche world of vintage enthusiasts who kiss Rin Tanaka's book every morning. There could be some good looks coming out of that but (a) it's obviously costumey, which is OK, and (b) looks stupid with flip flops (especially in Paris).

    Shuddup hipster, I got the autographied first print with traces of Carnegie's firstborn barfing on the last page, paid $75,000 for it at Swann galleries. Don't make me post a picture of myself in a speedo with Rush Limbaugh so I combine a non-sequitur with an appeal to illusory authority!!

    Yes, but do you have an evil twin who will pose with you for that picture?

    Only thing I could find

    by: kaneda
    To appease my hipster friend (sorry i can spend more on a jacket than your monthly rent)...here are some more shots of my "worn out" jacket that gets compliments every time i wear it. Going to start growing a mustache now and who knows, maybe I'll even bring my laptop to a coffee shop like that dbag and pretend to be working all day long.
