    I think the shirt has potential. At least it's not a short sleeve. S/S button-ups always reminds me of the dorky office guy everybody avoids talking to.

    Maybe under a neutral color cardigan?

    I don't know. That shirt mixed with the vibe wmmk has given off in the past made me instantly think of...


    That was my first thought too.

    Why would you pair your silver laceups with silver clothing? That's kinda what the street kids do who think you have to match the purple laces on your shoes with a white and purple sweatshirt and a purple hat or some lame shit like that. Just wear them with beat up skinny jeans like some trashed overdyed black ones and a slouchy but slim white tshirt (if you're kinda slim/skinny that is).

    ><

    well I pair my silver sneakers with silver clothing =P

    dunno just really dont like silver if its not matched with other silver things

    I pair silver with black or grey usually. I have a pair of metallic shoes (JV Chucks) but they don't really get much wear. So I guess basically what Chrono said.

    butteros obviously look great, RLs look ugly as hell I guess I have 12 hours to decide since they won't sell out, I shouldn't buy them, I'm poor, but after these I basically have every shoe and boot I need for a very long time: [​IMG]

    I have a ton of jackets and coats but I have never owned a leather jacket in my 29 years. I am considering this Rick Owens jacket and want some opinions. Its very pricey but if I pass on it, I will probably never be able to find another one. I found it in store and there is one left from the F/W. What do you guys think about the asymmetric look?

    I think that looks awesome, I'm waiting for a RO moto to pop up somewhere.

    I doubt you will be "set" for a very long time after buying just one more pair of footwear. Sooner or later you will find something far better and/or your style will evolve. I have often had similar thoughts and discovered it never holds true!

    I think that will look dated once the RO phase has passed it's at saturation now.

    I would opt for a more classic moto/bomber/etc style RO jacket or cop that if it's cheap so remorse level would be low.

    Here is another picture of the actual jacket im considering. I was a little concerned that it might look dated in a year or two. This is one of the more simple RO leathers that I have seen compared to some of his biker jackets.

    I was going to buy them too but chances are they will still be available next time around for cheaper. I bought some JV shoes from GILT and it was still available the second time around for cheaper so I'm taking a chance and waiting out on it.
