    Goddamn, asobu just gets better and better. If you don't mind me asking - for how long now have you been doing yohjiyohjiyohji?

    different tack today, with weird pose as bonus:

    This is really cool, despite you looking like you're about to fall down

    I always like it when steezier folks do a more "normal" outfit. It's nice to see the subtle ways folks like Synth make OCBD/t-shirt/jeans/boots interesting

    Synth how did you get those like that? I know you shared a while ago but i can't find it.
    I folded up a pair of apcs and put them in a bucket of bleach and water. And then...science happened. And it's insanely windy here so I was definitely almost falling down/ readying myself to keep the camera from getting blown off the railing. I am ready for the wind to stop. Edit: thanks for the lurv guys [​IMG]

    Synth, I really dig that. It's pretty damn awesome to see you wear you "far out" stuff while at the same time bring it back to something really simple like that but still looking damn good.

    synth just looks very all american badass

    like I have a feeling that's how a lot of OCBD/APC/somevariationofboots guys want to look in their head.

    so it's pretty funny to see such a good example of it come from a guy with a more extreme direction typically

    reminds me that i have a pair of old bleached out RRL's i used to mow the lawn in a few summers back that I should bring out of storage

    FTFY. Floral is this season's chambray

    Yes, but luckily floral is better and more attractive and has a longer shelf life if you can pull it off. The imperial french didn't have to pass draconian sumptuary laws to keep people from wearing chambray. Plus floral silks look awesome and they are easy to come by.

    unlikely once everyone is wearing it.

    You guys just need to wear it better than everyone else. Chambray isn't inherently bad because a ton of people cream over it and wear it, and same thing applies to floral. Look at Synth, he's just wearing some random, non-descript uninteresting shirt but still swags on everyone.

    Overexposure doesn't matter if you just suck less.

    I think florals are dope but it's not in the aesthetic direction I'm interested in. It might get played out mainstream-wise SS12 once it's picked up by the crew and the fast fashioners and featured in GQ, but for now it's just passed nascent-stage of eg enthusiasts in terms of the interweb hype. BR has them, which should indicate how off the mainstream radar they are.

    fyi this is what happens if you take pics with no sun but didn't bother getting any accessories for your camera

    at least the girl interviewing me said I was the best looking person she's seen in a suit!

    You're like a blurred tomato, but the hair looks sick.

    Yeah, combination of sunburn and drunkenness. Wasn't that red in person though, iphone cameras can only do so much.
