    I don't get how you guys can deem WvB stuff categorically unwearable based on those three shows, most of the pieces taken separately are pretty subdued (relatively speaking) and the most garish stuff isn't more out there than what Junya puts out every year. You just have to distinguish between runway theatrics and the garments themselves.

    i think you need some tapered pants of any kind. lets address why you dont like a clean pair of wool trousers, shall we?

    is it the hem and the way it falls on your shoes?
    is it the material itself?

    my fee is 160 per session btw

    i didnt have one yet :eek: ...thats why

    im trying to help KJ complete his look. i dont want to see ann d paired with raw denimz, do you? :laugh:

    my own problem with trousers is how the hem hits the shoe (hence boot tucks and elastics) but im working on it. im having the shcneiders hemmed to go with my sandals :satisfied:
    i figured that id pass on some advice or "tricks" to wearing trousers in a different cut than a reg 7.5 straight leg

    snow, i'm behind your attempt to get KingJ into trousers. i don't like when trousers fall to my foot either, so I wear them slightly cropped with boots typically. Like so:

    Are there any online stockists of Walter van Beirendonck with ss12 stuff?

    The pattern 'splicing' on these jackets is insane:

    I'm not against them categorically, but they're generally more formal which is a little harder for me to pull off. Actually, maybe not harder to pull off, but just outside my comfort zone. I pretty much exclusively hang out at hipster raves. Also, they're expensive! I have a few nice items from good brands but for the most part I got that stuff pretty cheaply which is why a lot of my looks tend to be sort of half complete - though I occasionally spoil myself I have price barriers for things which makes the process of building a wardrobe pretty slow. However, you're right, so I'm doing a yooxperiment [​IMG] (in cotton, sorry shah!):
