    The site models could be building a canoe for all I care, so long as there's accompanying measurements of the garment in question. Being in between sizes for most brands has made me treasure the few websites that have actual measurements for each item and not some stupid generic chart for what constitutes a mens medium. Why bother with sizing "help" at all if that's all you're going to provide to the buyer.

    "OK, so this chart says that at 40" in the chest, I'm a large. So that means I'm a large in Geller and FUBU, right?"

    Gramps paid about $1,000 too much for those Converse.

    You know what, I'm going to have to say "like" to that. Nothing like repurposing clothing. Never seen Rick Owens worn in wierd pseudo rockabilly style before.

    before your post I was going to say I wished I hated that, but I don't for some reason despite the obvious risks he is taking. I wouldn't try it though.

    I think it's the stupid wallet chain that kills it for me. He rocks his weight surprisingly well

    Pardon if this is the incorrect place to express my surprise, but...allow me to express my surprise. I mean, I just don't get it. That's an iconic design, right? One perfectly at home with the rockabilly/Americana/whatever look? If they were Converse (and they sorta are), the remaining 1% of people wouldn't bat an eye. Someone explain why it's shocking just because RO marked-up the look (or, more generously, 'appropriated' or 'tributed' or applied his unique vision to, etc.) Just not seeing the imagination there.

    Honest, non-troll-y confused face: :confused:

    Teegs, help me out.

    I almost like that. Or something. Maybe without the roll, and with fuller jeans. Why not?
