    i think two tones are okay and i love zippers on sneakers but those are just kind of an awkward mix.

    I liked the single toned lowcut versions, and can see the appeal of the 2-tones. However, the two toned mid zips just seem stylistically incoherent. It's as though someone tried to mix a summery sneaker and a winter boot. If you like the mids, get a pair of the mid achilles instead.

    Haha. When I wrote that statement about conditioning a woman I was actually thinking "I bet Hendrix will disapprove."

    As long as you're careful to not attack her taste, why would sharing your opinion about clothing with a girl whom you are close to be a bad idea? If you had recently gained new insight regarding a non-clothing subject would you withhold those opinions from her too? Is this even a healthy attitude?

    Here's what I discovered.... By repeatedly sharing my new found passion for clothing with her and offering up ideas about what might look better on her, it gradually sparked a new interest in her too. At first I suggested new styles for her based on my understanding of her personality, but over time she's become more independent and started to actually cultivate her own unique style that makes her feel good.

    A lot of girls whom dress poorly likely lack the proper context-- e.g. her friends and co-workers likely dress poorly too. By attempting to dress better yourself and talking with her about how harmonious your two distinct styles are when together as a couple, you will have created a new context.


    This probably belongs somewhere else (I don't know where else), but how does R/O (and R/O Lilies) run for women? My girl is xs and 24 to 25 in. (waist) in most brands - if I was looking for a gift for her b'day, what size would I be looking for on yoox, etc.?

    haha, my comment was based upon $$$ not any objection, as AR said.



    i certainly see nothing wrong with discussing tastes and styles and shit with your girlfriend

    Do itttttt. Sans that scarf-thing of course.
    I'm guessing the scarf is actually part of the shirt collar. He played with a lot of shirt and collar variations throughout the whole collection, in a slightly similar vein to some of the things he did in ss98 - also, high collars like in aw08, as well as expanding on the shirt-vest hybrids he did for ss08. I think the shirt exploration in ss11 was one of the high points of that collection. The floral suit looks great on him, I'm sure it could look great on scott too. Though I'm also suspecting there might be even better floral prints, as well as cuts, in this collection.

    I think rick is better on women but there isn't much value in the products and people have been conditioned to paying those exorbitant prices since it's the flavor of the month. At least he's milking it while he can.

    The females can be conditioned too they're not idiots.


    lol 110 gbp for socks

    I am working on that as we speak horse dogg maniac. NYC this summer was great, I'm currently applying for some reasons to go back. I saw this old guy with a cannonball belly walking around in a wifebeater, short shorts, and Rick dunks; it was superb.

    Probably kunk on a bulk cycle

    this made me lol
    anyone own these or similar and care to comment? regardless of the two-tone which is pretty subtle, I think theyre versatile enough to be worth with jeans shorts or even chinos.. worst case wear with gray sweatpants.? [​IMG]
    i had these. i liked them. my first cp btw.
