    No way is that Rick croc jacket only $10k. That seems way too low.

    Shit, when I was in college working at RL we had a womens croc moto style jacket that retailed for ~30k, so I would think the Rick would have to be somewhere around 25-35k.

    Edit- just found a cropped woman verision that is $25k

    yah you're probably right. i was thinking a python skin trench from prorsum for women that was 10k. the croc is probably even more. RL does have a habbit of ripping people off though so i wouldn't use them as a comparison. i'd also wager the men's is less than the women's, simply because women are willing to pay more.

    I don't really understand the love or hate for boat shoes. They're like the shoe version of a peacoat - most everyone has owned one at some point

    From SZ WAYWT Rick Owens x KitonBrioni I don't even know how to respond to this... my head asplode.
    Kills any drape. Should have paneled. Money for money's sake?
    The dude's turbo wedges are probably the best part of the fit though. MSRP on that jacket was like 10k I think. He will regret that shit fast fitting the way it does.
    Really? That's ridiculously cheap

    Hate is easy, they're ugly, clunky, and ubiquitous. The last part seems kind of shallow but not so when you consider how horribly they are styled most of the time (looks pretty ugly with any kind of tapered pant).

    Peacoat's issue is similar the last part, too common and badly styled most of the time but they still can at least look good.

    I'd definitely agree with the horrible styling bit. I don't understand why brands/magazines feel the need to pair them with everything; boat shoes with a suit? WTF. However, I think they generally can look pretty good with tapered pants... somewhere way back (like 2 years ago or something) chrono posted a fit w/ navy boat shoes and tapered A77 pants/chinos that received a lot of love. I'd disagree with the clunky... most of the ones I've ever owned aren't any more clunky than most lace-ups or loafers, though there's definitely some chunkier versions out there... but those seem to be mostly from brands that market themselves to older men etc.

    Do attachment jeans stretch at all? These curved legs I just got in fit but they're pretty skinny cut. Wouldn't mind a half inch.
