What/how many pieces do you have?
Asymmetrical elbow strap trench
Black sample dress shirt with collar and shoulder detail
and then non-fw04 I have:
SS04 star tee
and SS05 Sic transit gloria mundi tee
Slim top and really slouchy jeans with a cool belt? Welcome to my world.
So yeah, won the petrol leather Yahoo!Auctions with a low-ball bid ($175)... don't need another leather so will likely try it out in the Spring and then flip it. Always wanted one of these petroleum leathers, though. Too bad the leather on them feels so thin and flimsy. I'll put up fit pics when it arrives, etc. etc.
^ looks great, but the question is...black or khaki? too bad they didn't redo the olive, which is the one that Geller has himself...
Quick fitpic of the leather, arrived quick. It looks pretty decent fully zipped and buttoned, but the flap is a lot more obnoxious than I thought it might be. It's light and comfy as hell due to the soft, thin lamb that I'm usually not a huge fan of, but it works for this jacket.
Not sure if I like it or the color/design is too loud for me
That's great and everything, but tell me more about your sweats and slippers
(I think the jacket is fun)
Yeah, been awhile since I've had a "fun" piece of clothing, not sure if it's fun or gaudy, though, haha - could easily be something you'd see on the discount rack at Zara these days. I think it'll look good with some relaxed pants and sneakers, though
Sweats and slippers are the 1-2 knockout punch Wings + Horns / LL Bean combo, best clothing purchases of all time.
Looks like it needs a rinse
It's funny you mention that because I've been wanting this jacket since 2009 after seeing this blog post:
Looks good man, just need to layer a vest over a mesh shirt and some relaxed richard pants lol.
On another note, acrimony got some more goods in, grey wash denim looks great
Kinda hilarious that Acrimony got the YELLOW bomber, but not the black.
Cuz black never sells, right?
Here's a shitty cell phone comparison between fw13 sepia and ss13 sepia
the fall version is a bit thicker and stiff, but I guess they will break in
the denim is darker but the spray is lighter
the calf area is not as skinny
the waist is tighter
here's an even shittier pic of the fw10 bomber. it's pretty great but I'm not sure how well suited it is for me so I might sell it on
I also got a pair of dot gloves and the retail version is a hilarious imitation of the runway version from the sample sale
The fw13 purple Richard jacket is also a very sad take compared to the fw11 one.
It fits nicely though, color is great and all that poly and acrylic make it very structured. I'll keep it for a while at least
Lastly, I decided (after placing a non-returnable order for the BRIGHT RED one also in a 46) that I would have preferred a 44 in the fw13 mesh tanks. I like the body to be looser but the corners of the hem flare out unpleasantly
Anyone ever buy anything from tikwid?...I find the way they sell stuff a bit odd...
