    Levi's Men's "Ex Girlfriend Jeans" [​IMG] These look like a pair of tights...... I doubt they will sell well. Aren't skinny jeans a fad that has passed anyway? I don't see 95% of the male population wanting to wear jeans like this... I might be wrong though.

    The concept itself is funny. "Well, I broke up with my girl but at least she left a pair of her jeans around so I can wear those. Silver lining!"

    so sad, why doesn't levis stick to what they're good at. it's like marc jacob's anecdote about how his first grunge collection knocked off walmart and then walmart knocked off his collection which was inspired by them in the first place.

    kunk's comments in the baller sneaker thread today make me grateful that someone is verbalizing what's been on my brain, albeit in more polarizing terms.

    hes right, its so expensive to be wearing too many designers. I've been eyeing old Number (N)ine gear, but how am I suppose to take a plunge unless I can commit to spending a ton on a lot of their items in order to make a outfit with congruence.

    I was referring more to his comments about the shoes. I see both sides of the never-ending uniform versus variety debate.

    well, its mainly monetary reasons that keep me from being too eclectic, but it bothers me to see things incorporated into outfits which outright shouldn't.

    Blah blah blah

    I have mostly jil/raf, some mmm, dope ervell, silent, schneider, etc. I can pull off rick and band, its fun not to be consticted to one thing . Fuuma wears a wide range of things and does it well.

    Although it is dumb to mix the extremes together, what's wrong with having many different things in a wardrobe ?

    Kunk has some of the most mind numbingly boring fits on sf. I do understand what he is lashing out against but he's been going on tirades about all that shit forever and what he does is just as bad.

    i don't think number 9 would be too incongruent with what you wear.

    and your opinion obviously isn't biased whatsoever...especially considering your insightful comments about the recent RO collection. Plus, I'm talking about wearing like a julius/RO leather with shit that makes no fucking sense paired with it. Not badmouthing wearing a mesh of designer stuff. It just depends what it is being paired with what, imo.

    I dunno, I was really thinking about it. Well see...

    I've liked a lot of Rick Owens stuff and have owned a couple of pieces. I am not like Jet where I automatically dislike everything that Rick puts out just because it is Rick. I even understand his distaste for Julius now after seeing much more of it.

    My problem isn't with rick, it's with latching onto one designer.

    Yeah but I wasn't addressing anything that you said. My post just came right after yours, sorry if you got the wrong idea.

    I mean, I think its never gonna be possible for people to see eye to eye on this. I think your personality has a large role with who you feel comfortable with. I guess I'm the same way jet is, but with Ervell. That isn't to say I can't appreciate other designers that fit under this aesthetic. I'm currently latched onto one designer cuz its the only one who speaks to me however corny that may be. I almost feel dirty wearing anything else at this point.

    I have a couple of rick tees that I bought 3 years ago and almost bought a blistered lamb before.

    I didn't think anyone really took kunk's comments seriously did they? Some people who aren't drones like to create their own aesthetic instead of being a runway mimic. I don't think I've ever seen one dude dressed in one brand and thought wow that dude is stylin hard or my god how creative. You basically just purchased your aesthetic. I can understand how it's hard to break out of that mold when you're constantly on sf or in soho where everyone is a caricature but I've seen seriously stylish dudes on the streets of LA who don't really give a fuck.

    Kent I probably won't be in LA until monday but I have a commitment that day sorry brosef.

    I can appreciate both...but it has to make sense. Like if someone is wearing BoO with RO leathers or sneaks I'm guessing your eyebrows would raise as well, no? I dunno, RO just plain looks better with MORE RO. Same with Julius. They created something which warrants wearing the stuff head to toe. There is room for other names to come into play here, but its usually just a handful of other dark designers that wouldn't make it look dumb, imo. Plus, maybe people are creative, but they have such a tremendous love for a designer they are willing to cling to them. Don't get why you are always on this crusade about "creativity" when people are arranging outfits in the same manner. Its not like if you buy RO items you get a free guidebook inside the bag which tells you how to wear the stuff right.
