What do you guys think about (allegedly) Marxist fashion designers like Carol christian Powell?


It's the first time I hear of this but considering he once said he intentionally makes his leather clothes as painful and uncomfortable as possible it sort of makes sense.


is this a pun on CCP


<I like artifice. I don’t mean lipstick and Botox — I’m talking exaggeration and enhancing ideas, rather than trying to look young. Think of Kabuki or the artifice of a room with a scroll on the wall and one flower arrangement. A tea ceremony: artifice as formalised ritual. Well, maybe it’s not that different from Botox and lipstick after all. Maybe it’s wrong of me to think that one is more sophisticated than the other — I don’t want to be the kind of person who claims to know what the rules really are. I hate sounding opinionated even though I probably am. The artifice I like is always exaggerated and borderline ridiculous. It’s challenging the codes of good taste and notions of conservative beauty in a good-humoured way. Humour is one of the most elegant things in the entire universe, you know.
<I’m a 55-year-old man with grey curly hair that has been chemically altered to be black, straight and long. I’m a 55-year-old man who has gone to the gym for twenty years: I’ve altered my body in a very calculated way through steroids and working out. I started going because I was drinking so much that I had to balance that out, but also because I wanted to change my body. I just wasn’t happy with it as it was. My wife was always going to the gym, and she pushed me to go too. Today it’s as regular as brushing my teeth, just something I do to feel right. A grooming habit. I’m not saying my body is perfect, but it’s as perfect as I can make it. I don’t need to rely on clothes to hide flaws or make it look better than it actually is. I’m also very comfortable with my feminine side now. I’m definitely an old queen.

>My father died this year so I’ve been thinking a lot about mortality. He was a very confrontational man, very analytical. He liked putting people into a corner intellectually — it was a form of bullying. He could be so critical of the way people live their lives and in the end he became very bitter. I never had the chance to ask him why he, after all those years of thinking, couldn’t find serenity. He wasn’t able to negotiate the ending of his life in a graceful way. He was so observant, and he believed in being a resolved human being — someone who thinks correctly — and still he never managed to make peace with the fact that he was dying. It made me think about the world and about how to find graceful ways to deal with threats. That’s what I would like to do. I’d like to end up in a garden with a wall around it, reading and playing with kittens. That’s probably the best I can hope for. I’m not going to have grandchildren. Well, I guess in a way I will because I surround myself with people, and some are having children. I love seeing babies around. So I suppose I will have the comfort of being in a garden and playing with kittens and babies. I don’t know what could possibly be better than that.
This hit hard :(


You should really cross dress if you're going to burn a lot cash. Men's clothes realistically are still kinda ugly after 400ish dollars.


being overly critical while being a dipshit yourself is a very unfortunate quality


Most high end fashion (excluding traditional gendered formal wear like fancy suits and dresses) is unisex anyways.


I'm here to find extremely toxic ways to express my masculinity, stop trying to make fashion gay


Fashion is inherently gay/feminine


what do you mean? we've been wearing clothes since the beginning of time, before gay even existed.


What's gay/feminine today was literally the norm for men not many centuries ago.


sadly being gay or a woman doesnt inherently make you look good


I'd agree if my favorite designers' lines for women weren't too ridicuously small for me, and I'm a skinny lanklet!


Best most retarded comment ITT.
Keep dressing like a moron.

list of taobao stores that sell high quality clothes, original or "inspired" by mainstream designers


Apparently all of inditex factories in Bangladesh are on strike with strong police repression.


I have the opposite problem cause I’m a 5’11” guy with a 23” waist so pretty much all standard men’s clothing just makes me look like a rectangle, which is fine for a layered or oversized fit but looks shit elsewise. Unisex works well though


Where did I say that it’s bad that it’s inherently feminine? I still love fashion, I just recognize what it is instead of coping


In the history and present of gender theory, femininity consistently demonstrates a societal predilection towards beauty, appearance, and fashion by proxy. There have never been societies wherein obsession with fashion and appearance was categorized as ostensibly masculine, yet there have been endless societies where it’s considered obviously feminine/effeminate in theory and practice.
To clarify, fashion is not “genetically” inherently feminine/effeminate, but societally inherent. And That’s not a bad thing, but a fact as of now nonetheless, so trying to purport it’s actually super alpha male to worry about what pretty cloth your wearing is dumb and likely only reflexively said out of internalized homophobia.

I had an argument with him once and he unironically thinks liberalism and capitalism are separate phenomena and that capitalism emerged from liberalism, like we literally willed it into existence or something. People always throw the term idealism around here a lot but this is actually a great example of it. Big pseud who should only stick to dissing neocons for their clothes instead of pretending he knows a thing about political or economic theory, but he can't help but still comment on them anyway.

I think what they're getting at is that it's silly to claim fashion is "inherently" feminine or gay just because cis men say so, especially when most designers are straight men. Even looking at the history of fashion the last century the only trend you could attribute to women/gays is skinny jeans? Maybe?

>trying to purport it’s actually super alpha male to worry about what pretty cloth your wearing is dumb

Doubt anyone here will disagree with your main point, but I think "positive stereotypes" are dumb too.

>yet there have been endless societies where it’s considered obviously feminine/effeminate in theory and practice
What? It wasn't until the French Revolution.
After the French Revolution, in France men being into fashion was seen as part of the old nobility and therefore bad. And France set fashion for the western world. So the western world adopted the idea that men should not be into fashion.
Then in the the late 19th century, anglo puritanism put the final nail in the coffin.


as an nb i never felt right identifying as male but watching his shows made me feel like i could have been a male in rick's world, idk


>23" waist

i like it when cool designers have collabs with mainstream brands so poor plebs like me have access to their stuff


That’s literally just how I’m built, I don’t think I need medical attention. I’m only slightly underweight (131lbs) for my height, and feel healthy.


Yeah, BMI isn't really a useful metric.


Yeah shit sucks. Having a really small waist and large hip-to-waist/shoulder-to-waist ratio is the dream body most women want for themselves, but having it as a cis guy means absolutely nothing unless you’re brave enough to wear cropped midriff / tight tops in public and almost definitely be called slurs.


so like a bodybuilder? what about heavily tapered tops?

>Until recently, fashion was considered the "F-word" in intellectual circles, dismissed as unworthy of serious attention. Yet no area of life, no individual moment, stands outside fashion's discourses. Intuitively, we all know that clothing is a language, incessantly communicating messages about its wearer. But who speaks this language, to whom is it addressed, what does it mean, and how are its meanings established and transformed? On Fashion explores the ways our material, political, psychological, sexual, even intellectual lives are woven into fashion's fabric.

>This stimulating collection of essays explores fashion's symbolic and figurative functions in photography, cinema, and video; in consumerism, postmodernism, and feminism; in political and material culture; and in self-definition and subjectivity. They demonstrate the pervasive reach of fashion and its expressions.

Interesting read.


>like a bodybuilder?
Proportion wise I guess?
but having a wide waist/obliques but even larger muscular shoulders is extremely different than a tiny waist and thin but broad shoulders.

Nothing about society is inherent you theorylet. You're arguing metaphysical positions instead of thinking dialectially about fashion. Under primitive communism and in the transition to clan society men and women equally decorated themselves. Early class societies like the Minoan exhibit this. It is only after capitalist society codifies gendered norms to enforce patriarchy that we associate inherently (as you put it) fashion with femininity or queerness. Once we abolish capitalism also fashion loses the shackles of capitalist society and is aufgehoben to socialist fashion. It will become one of the main points of communist society, since as Marx put it

>As a result, therefore, man (the worker) only feels himself freely active in his animal functions – eating, drinking, procreating, or at most in his dwelling and in dressing-up, etc.; and in his human functions he no longer feels himself to be anything but an animal. What is animal becomes human and what is human becomes animal.


I’ve run into the problem recently of realizing a lot of creatives talk a lot and are truly emotionally intelligent people but don’t really do much of the things they say they do.

i once had a fedex package stalled because of some issue and when i had to call them the person on the other end hung up when i took too long to answer a question about the shipping code or whatever because i was trying to look for it

Thoughts on chelsea boots? Are they hard to pull off? I like how they look but I wonder if they aren't that versatile and I'm forced to go full SLP if I get a pair.


shinier = dressier, suede being the most casual


speaking of boots every goodyear welt boot comes in only two colorways: brown with red accents and yellow with black accents or whatever. just sell a full black boot it’s not that difficult


Depends on the style of the chelseas obv but you don't need to commit to the skinny rockstar aesthetic.

also long straight hair is high maintenance and gets frizzy without care too


I'm not saying only attractive people should wear nice clothing but sometimes I see insane fits with a head that simply doesn't fit with the aesthetic. At least change your haircut.

It's just a picture.


I bought some baggy pants on H&M. Really fucking great pants. I love them all and for a great price.

There were no good tops though (shirts, or otherwise). This is for the male section of the store.

Even baggier than picrel. They're elastic too. I wear them on top of my belly button to make myself look a bit taller, plus they're super long too. I've gotten a lot of compliments but it's a flamboyant style for the city I'm in currently. I stand out.


>I wear them on top of my belly button
So they're high rise or are you torturing your balls? If you're looking for suggestions look for wide cropped tops.


I think the only real offender is thin wire-frame glasses. Also most people won't even know them as incel glasses, though they might think they're out of style.


>look for wide cropped tops.
Nice, I'll check them out! I have a bit of a belly, so I'm self conscious about croptops. I'll buy one anyways just to see how I look. I wore these pants today with a short polo. It looked pretty nice.
My balls are fine lol, there's plenty of space left.

Any recommendations for casual shoes with big heels? I think it would go with this look and it would make me look a bit taller but I don't want to kill myself with boots, like doc martens style boots.


doesnt need to be a crop top necessarily, though thats definitely a power move


As in chunky? Doc Martens has derbies and oxfords with chunky soles too if you don't want to go for combat boots. Maybe look for cuban heel shoes too. Idk I don't got many cheap recs for shoes.


Are the pictures you attached what you meant? Because if I look online its mostly wide fitted belly button length tops. I have the pic rel nice asos oversized bomberjacket that looks pretty cool with the fit.
I was mostly looking for some "sport shoes" with chunky or large soles. But you're right that some docmartens would look good with this fit.

Bless this thread, fashion is something that I always wanted to try myself. But I can only salivate over those Balenciaga clothes (they're fuckin expensive) and watch JoJo.


Daaamn, the man's got a drip.


I like Demna but only confined to the runway. I don't think anything tops the DHL polo from when he was in Vetements. The overexposure thanks to rappers and celebrities and regular people desperately wanting to emulate them doesn't help.


The material it's made of doesn't really mean much. Not only are there many different quality tiers for each material including cotton but in this day and age 100% anything doesn't mean much for quality. Synthetic fabrics have come such a long way since the '40's and the idea that synthetic equates to inferior is dated. Rick Owens, for example, uses many synthetic blends to provide different textures and draping.

It's more important to judge a garment just by handling it. It sounds stupid but if you've handled lots of different fabrics it's pretty easy to tell the difference between high quality and low.

Then you look at the cut, seams, and stitching. Are the clothes cut in a boxy one size fits all manner or are they cut to conform to the body? Is the seam work logical? Is it anatomic or straight? Is the stitching reinforced at stress points? Are there loose threads?

It's kind of hard to explain in writing but go to a department store sometime and look at a high end designer shirt. Examine the details and look at the composition tags. Then do the same for a cheap basic shirt. Note the differences. You can read up on basic garment construction for a better idea but comparing and contrasting provides a good base level to judge quality.

terrible suggestion lmao
wool if you have the money
sportswear is synthetic for a reason too, gets rid of sweat faster


exactly. A cotton tshirt under a cotton button up, with a rucksack, means sweat. Quality cotton pieces turn to shit if they're washed all the time. Wool can be good but shapes we like usually aren't made of wool. I've been thinking about cotton things with underarm, chest and back zip vents. Maybe stretch panels too, like cotton pants with a stretch panel at the crotch for cycling.

a fun little game you can play is to look up some turbo hype item like the crystal bullet belts on grailed, filter by sold, and scroll all the way to the bottom to see what whoever is bragging about owning one actually paid. in some cases they probably just bought it from a japanese site ten years ago and even the oldest grailed listings are fake inflated prices

if you ever paid half a rack for an issey sport bomber you are dumb as rocks


This is so fucking tacky. Literally random shit thrown together. This is even dumber than paying retail for designer clothes, this is paying absurd resell prices for stuff that you could get for $100 before this hypebeast garbage. Seeing Undercover and Duvet worn like that is painful, also.


this has to be fake right…


I know it makes complete sense under capitalism but it still amazes me that hypebeasts evolved from paying $1000 for Supreme t-shirts that originally cost under $100 to paying $8000 for 20-year-old second-hand designer clothes that you could get for under $400 before the hype.

Yeah why even try to emulate something you'd see on a Zara commercial but even more boring? I have a suit that's a men's style pantsuit in a woman's cut tailored to fit my waist, it's pretty damn androgynous, and I wear that to the opera and gala and such, the fact that a young person is there at all is a treat to the old rich fucks and middle aged NPR crowd who make up 99% of the patrons. I wear a couple long dresses that are cartoonishly gothic and have flowing hooded maxi open front cardigans aka sleeves cloaks, but it looks cool and it's expected anyone south of 40 is "youthful" so you can get away with a lot, people love that shit. The standards required for "formal wear" has tanked, our society isn't as strict on imposing complex formal wear rules, so it's more of a vibe at this point, so be adventurous.

Mods already did this once


anything you take from a fucking old navy catalog or whatever is going to be bad lmfao
regular blazers are boring, regular t-shirts are boring, no shit combining them is boring too


The issue isnt boring, its the combination of suit jacket + jeans and shirt. It looks like ass. I never seen it look good on anyone who wasnt 10/10 gigachad model, and that doesnt count.


i dont think youve looked at many outfits then, and why are you bringing up jeans now?
seriously youre complaining about a specific hypernormie thing and then pretending it or any variations cant be pulled off in any way whatsoever


So suit jacket + suit pants + t-shirt? Can look ok, but still cant escape the fact its a stepdown from shirt.


ok i give up lol. clothes beyond what you can find at a suburban mall exist too you know

Maybe you'll like this one better? Not visible but there are also french cuffs which makes it stand out a bit more and is not typical in work clothing these days.

What about lower waistcoats? Creates more of a V shape while still adding a bit of flair.


All right, so can you show any examples of what you have in mind?

I see the appeal, it makes the suit more visually rich I guess, but I find it too much. Too layered, you have jacket on top of waistcoat on top of tie on top of shirt, and if its cold ouside and you add coat, you have officially entered JRPG character design territory.


If this normie thing is what passes as "JRPG character design" to you then you must be incredibly boring.

It was just a fancy way of saying overdesigned. You start adding stuff to make it plain outfit look more interesting, and then forget to stop.
Ignore the JRPG comparison, the point was its too many layers. There is a reason suit, shirt and tie are such a popular combination, it works, looks good. Modifying it too much (waistcoat, t-shirt) can still look good and more eye catching, but I feel like its a step-down in terms of overall aesthetics.


Yeah I can definitely see what you mean, the super layered look feels a bit larpy even though it's socially acceptable.

> youre hyperventilating over a suit but with a coat (wow!!!!!)
I didn’t even say I hated it tho, and despite that you still lost your shit. This is 100% about weeb feelings being hurt.


Yeah, I personally like them but I only wear it if I’m going to an event. Otherwise it feels like overkill for some reason.


Parkas are very warm, efficient, and look great in winter.


It’s like depressed Harry after you shave him


I tried to, but cant find any I like. They all smell, I dont know, chemical I guess. Reminds me of driving in old family Škoda. Maybe because I only tried cheaper stuff.


That blazer and those pants are great.


Go to a mall and try fragrances out, even the expensive ones, just to find out what tones you like most. Idk if coffee beans do anything to actually reset your sense of smell so try out a few at a time.


In very broad strokes, there are four types of fragrances. One, which smell like woods. Two, which smell like flowers. Three, which smell like shower gels. And four, which smell like candies and chocolates. People will throw all those big words at you and that will only complicate it for you.

A fragrance has different notes and stages, too. On first spray, the smell will be a bit (or a lot) different than when it "dries down". So if you like a fragrance, spray yourself and give it a few hours to see what it smells like then.

Smell more and you'll see. Pretty much the only way to start understanding it.


That's fine. I try to take breaks every now and then to avoid nose blindness.


Personally I never liked fragrance but a few months ago it just clicked. I'd recommend trying out some of the really expensive stuff at a mall or something. You can find rip-off versions that are really cheap if you like the smell. I use knock offs of tom ford colognes and while it doesn't last very long it's fun while it's active.


Opinion on dressing above ones class? I want to buy a nice blazer for casual wearing outside, but I feel like its overdressing as a poor wagie. I dont want to seem like a pretender or something like that.


bro wear what you want, it's fine. not like people are gonna demand to check your wallet is it


No, but if I have a conversation with someone and they ask what so I do, answering "warehouse worker" is going to make me feel extra awkward while dressed as a hedge fund manager.


just say 'I'm in imports and exports' then B^)


>wearing a blazer is a "rich people" thing
lmfaooooooooooo rich people are wearing patagonia vests or balenciaga jeans dude


I dont mean rich rich, but shirt and blazer isnt typical blue collar outfit. Makes me self-conscious, so I am asking here opinions of other people to figure out if its just my own insecurity or not.


yeah it definitely is, i have a miserable retail job too and i wear stuff like this that i saved up to buy second hand


Remember with suits it's always tailoring over brand. Get your shit tailored.


this only really applies if you want that boring mfa look, if you get an interesting blazer it depends

what you dont understand is that theres more than one type of fit. not everything has to be slim. yohji, miyake, and kawakubo were renowned when they first entered the fashion scene by providing alternative, often chunky silhouettes to otherwise stoic menswear. clothes cant be pulled off in only one way and suits arent the exception


Where did I say suits can't come in different fits? What does a fit have to do with tailoring?


what about drop shoulders, intentionally long slim sleeves, cropped and wide, drop crotches, asymmetry, etc? "perfectly tailored" clothes arent the golden standard


That's literally the whole point of tailoring idiot. So everything falls where it's intended to.

r/MFA always looks silly because they have more money than sense. They focus on creating these perfectly manicured fits that are aesthetic but they have no style of their own. It's a mishmash of geeky guys wearing brand new workwear or autistic old-timey suits.

It's what happens when your concept of fashion comes exclusively from infographics. There's rarely any sense of personal edge, it's always some variation of a copy-pasted look they got off of the internet.


Wear an interesting jacket, or wear interesting pants/hat/jewelry or >>38043 if you don't want to add layers.


I hate having handled Guidi boots because their leather is insane but so are the prices and I will never be able to afford that, even second-hand (and second-hand leather footwear is eh…).

But seriously you can't even see anything


Rich people don't really wear suits anymore tbh. Blazers are super cheap second hand too. If you really don't want to seem like your overdressing you can wear the blazer with a sweater instead of a dress shirt.

your shitty takes are exactly what post-/pol/-infestation /fa/ sounds like


Yeah, wool, linen, tweed, leather, none of which should look brand new or current fashion. Old money hates spending money.


All the bourgeois and politicians dress like that in my country at least. Their children tend to dress like casual preppy until they hit 30 though.


rich people wear whatever they fuck they want because they have nobody to impress. youre hyperfocusing on celebrities who have hired people to tell them what to wear so they seem "trendy" and pay MSRP for mainstream designer pieces lol. people like gates or zuccerberg wear basic tshirts that cost $500 each for example


Black and white are the most neutral colors ever, it's no wonder.


If you want a casual blazer then look for loose unstructured blazers lol.


>that img


Something about this outfit is unnerving but I can't really pinpoint what


I like the 4th pic, looks like something out of scarface


I've once been to a private wealth management conference, where people from wealthy families showed up. Didn't really look that different from regular upper-middle class folks. Lots of chinos, polo shirts, button-down shirts and blazers, nice loafers. Only thing that really stood out were retardedly expensive watches and perfect pearly white teeth everywhere.


i love designer clothing but cant stand interviews with designers, theyre all so pretentious yet basic. shoutout to japanese designers who always have interviews that seem generated by chatgpt lmao


Appreciate the feedback, but I still feel like, I dont know, something is missing? Like the outfit is too basic. I am not jewelry fan (and dont want end up dressing like an arab immigrant), so maybe something on top, a jacket or something?

My hypothesis is that the divide is between rich that do some managerial work, meaning they show in the office, meetings, conferences, so they dress like upper class professional, and those who completely outsourced all of that, not being in any way involved in actual day-today-day business operations, and dress like an unemployed NEET because thats what they effectively are.

I want to get a black suit but I'm not sure what pattern I should go for if any. Here are the main options I'm looking at which one should I go for. Thinking about normal, black on black mini-grid, and pinstripe. Which one would be best?


Hmm, what shirt and tie do you want to use?


White shirt with black, navy or burgundy tie, black/dark grey shirt with black tie, red shirt with black tie. Those are the combinations I'll be using most


Daring today, aren't we?


Yeah, is he even trying to look like an anime character?


Looking like an anime character hasn't even been a thing in mainstream fashion in over a decade.


all of those options are equally bland so just throw some dice to help you decide 👍


Stripped one for white shirt, plain for gray/black is what I would pick.


So you're not a fan of the black minigrid?


No, because the pattern is so small that unless someone is right next to you, its just gonna look like plain one with fading colour.


Yeah I had to enlarge the image to even notice it.

military gear is anything but practical, the fleeces, socks and compression gear are all pretty decent but most boots, jackets, pants and backpacks are too bulky, too heavy and uncomfortable. sure the shit is sturdy and won't break down but the benefit of its durability is far outweighed by everything else about it. and in the case of boots because theyre all used the leather has already molded to another persons feet

You won't get scammed, you're just going to get paper-thin garbage that's worse than even H&M in quality unless you pay up, and even then actual quality reps are very few. And even then I've seen plenty of people on reddit and fedcord who paid hundreds for seemingly well-made reps that fell apart a month in.


I've been watching some of Rick's interviews and he's ridiculously down to earth. He's not inspired by poetry or dead trees, he's inspired by body building and motorcyclists lmao. I guess it helps that he grew up near homeless until he was picked up by his now wife.


Hi, Damir. How are you doing?

Fine, thanks.

So how come after 3 years of doing menswear collections, you’ve decided to launch a womenswear collection?

I always wanted to do it, but it was much easier to start with men because I’m a man, and basically I design clothes for myself. Also it’s because I was assisting Dirk Schoenberger and Raf Simons before starting on my own stuff, and for me it was easier to start with something I already knew. Anyway, it was the right time to start the womenswear collection, because I don’t want to be just a menswear designer. If you want to build a fashion house, you need to cover menswear and womenswear.

Which designers are an inspiration for you?
I have always been inspired by Armani – his shapes and lines – and also by Miyake and Helmut Lang.

What was the inspiration for the collection?

It wasn’t easy at the beginning. I took some pieces from my menswear collection and reshaped them because I needed something to start from, but I’ve changed them for the next collection because I don’t want to do unisex. The shapes are more feminine now, and I’m also thinking about bringing more structure into the men’s side. At the moment my inspiration comes from my girlfriend – I’m doing the clothes for her. I normally start off by gathering images and things that trigger something in me, feelings and colors…and I stick them up on a big board, which just grows and grows. I’m a feeling designer. It is obvious that both my collections are going to have the same spirit. I am not someone who creates a concept then builds something around it, like Raf, for example. Raf has a concept and if you see him and his collection it’s like they’re two different worlds. I develop my own fabrics in Italy with Lyria for the different volumes and shapes…

You need to build up your own identity. All of the major women’s fashion houses already have one; you must have one, surely…

Yes – but it takes you years. Women’s fashion is so crowded; there are so many labels; too much shopping…

Yes, but everyone wants do design for women.

I know, because women’s fashion is where the money is. That’s where you can cover your costs, and that’s what it’s all about in this crazy business. It’s very emotional – there’s no other business where you would invest your money for such a small return. You’d just say, “Fuck it” (Laughs). In fact it is so emotional that people in the big houses will just throw all their money into a small collection, but at the end of the day they still have to cover their own costs, so that’s why you make the money with womenswear collections. That’s the long-term plan for all of us, otherwise you just can’t do fashion shows. I’d say that [sic] is almost no one, except maybe Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, who actually make money out of their clothing, and these days even they are selling a lot of shoes and bags. Do you really think Balenciaga makes money from the clothing?


I don’t think so. And in men’s fashion, that potential just isn’t there.

I think it’s also because there was a long period of time when men’s fashion was completely like… dead… and now it’s flowing again, and it’s really good because there used to be nothing…

Yes, it is interesting. I also think that the atmosphere during men’s fashion week is better than during women’s. It is lighter, easier, but in a positive way. Everyone is cool, everyone’s open to things; there’s a lot of communication… Things are much more open during men’s week. During women’s week it’s like everybody’s in a hurry.


And you can spend the money on a perfume line, on a shoe line…

That’s what holds the whole business together. Also, the magazines need advertisers, and all of that kind of thing comes from the bags and perfumes, which is absolutely ridiculous while we’re all making this huge effort. That’s what I’m saying: it’s all about emotions. We really go to a lot of trouble…

You had your own perfume, didn’t you?

Yes, but it was only a project. I don’t even have it myself anymore, because it sold out in a month.


They only did a limited edition – two or three thousand bottles – and didn’t bring it out it [sic] again. It’s very sad because we spent all that money, and developing a perfume is extremely expensive, and then they don’t use it again. Because they do a new group of designers each year.

Are you thinking about doing a new one?

I would love to. I think creating a perfume is such a great experience, not just for designers but for all human beings. I was working with a perfumer from New York, and I kind of wrote a story for him, and he made the scent from my story. So it’s really a lot fo fun; it’s just great that you can create your own perfume. But it’s complicated for a label; you have to be very big to do perfume. There are also other examples, like Victor & Rolf; I don’t think they make any money from their collection, they just have to do the collection to sell the perfume.

Comme des Garçons is the best example of that.

But Comme des Garçons is my business role model. If I’m thinking about the business and how we should do things, I always look at Comme des Garçons, because to me they are the only ones who manage to maintain a really, really strong image – actually the strongest in the whole market – and do so much cheesy stuff and it doesn’t hurt their image. I have friends in Germany who have nothing to do with fashion, and they’ve got a Comme des Garçons wallet, and if you ask them what Comme des Garçons is, they don’ t know! (Laughs) They’ve never heard of it, and they do not know who Rei Kawakubo is, which is fantastic. What they did in the perfume business is just amazing, because the scents are the best; they do the best perfumes in really cool packaging and the price is OK, too. I think they now have about 50 different scents, and five years ago they only had a couple. And they do it in such a clever way, because they do not invest all the money in special flacons.

Yes, it is really cool.

Yes, it is cool.

What do you think about Zara, H&M etc.?

I think that what they are doing is good. Of course they copy, but I wouldn’t be angry if I saw a copied piece hanging there, because that means that someone who can’t afford my clothing or stuff from other high-end designers can buy something similar there, and that also teaches the general public how to dress. I also launched a second line called Silent, which is reasonably priced because I don’t have to develop fabrics especially for that collection.

Does anyone know where I can get a three-piece suit for less than $1,000? I want it to be at least half canvas, 100% wool (super 130 would be perfect but not required). I've been looking at ebay for used suits but finding a 3 piece that isn't polyester garbage and is the color I want is pretty hard. I've heard good things about suitsupply but they seem to have raised their prices so I wonder if it's still the steal everyone says it is.


Ebay is your best bet. You might get lucky browsing grailed and the sort.

Unfortunately high rise pants have not been popular with men for over half a century.
I have a few pairs from a japanese designer brand but designer brands might be iffy since a lot of their stock is seasonal.
There is low demand and low supply for this style of pant. Repros of trousers pre WWII fill the niche but often some details are wrong. Scavini and Kit Blake are european brands that offer RTW high rise trousers but I think they are online only. You can also get a tailor to make them for you, or look for a MTM brand that offers a high rise customization for their trousers.
I have no idea how you're going to try one on before you buy, unless your city is big enough to have a number of designer boutiques that happen to carry what you're looking for this season. Or maybe Uniqlo U if you're lucky.

Tfw you like clothes that fit a more futuristic wardrobe and also clothes that fit an arte povera one.


Trying to fit an outift into whatever terrible buzzwords people made up is a pointless pursuit.

One thing I love about fashion in general, is how it is fluid, there are no boundaries, no limits, no boxes to tick off. Only inspiration and cloth. I understand that the STEM types that venture on the internet are used to that kind of engineered approach to something like fashion. The gossamer of fashion is not something you can put in a neat little box and attach a label to.

Knowing how to dress conservatively and knowing how clothes should fit (something that should be a basic human skill and that your parents should have thought you when you were still a kid) =/= fashion

Look at how designers tame their more romantic impulses. Restraint can make one romantic detail as interesting as a dress full of them. Veronique Branquinho, Chloe, Simone Rocha, Dries Van Noten all take inspiration from opulent, elaborate fabrics and historical references, but they channel it in a way where it becomes a modern flourish and not an anachronistic affectation. You can also look at how certain fashion eras have tapped into older styles to give them a contemporary context. When the bohos and hippies repurposed lace and frills, they did so to contrast themselves with the straight-laced styles that dominated post-war America and Europe. But by pairing it with jeans and clogs, they weren't just reusing a historical style; they were recontextualizing it.

While it never got adopted, T-Block has captivated camouflage enthusiasts ever since.

I wear a DDR jacket and sometimes boomers stare at me wide-eyed and fucking salute me thinking I'm a veteran.

What clothes should fat people wear?


For anyone in 99% of cases clothes that fit and don't look tight on them.

There's a lot more to suiting than the modern trend of clothes that stick to your body. Shout out to Edwardian suiting.


Some days I want to dress like a billowy mass of old-timer fabrics and other days I want to dress like a post-gender android from the future…


I'm here to find extremely toxic ways to express my masculinity, stop trying to make fashion gay

I went shopping today and found a nice shirt! All of my other shirts are bright colours, which is why I picked them, wanted something cheerful, but a dark colour scheme meshes much better with my skintone and hair.
Was also looking for some suit jackets, but the only one that was within my budget was made out of, I dont even know how to describe it, it felt like sweatpants texture. Not very classy. Since new season is starting some thrift shops are bound to have new stocks, I gotta go check them out, hopefully Ill find a preserved grey suit that actually fits me.



good vascularity, looking juicy for summer bro no homo.

Corbyn should have rebelled and went full streetwear.


>until he gave in
Didn't they still give him shit for wearing a tie anyway?


Yeah, but black-on-black is also an incredibly safe combination. I would expect more.

It's easier to look good with colors. Like I already said, when you're wearing all black you emphasize the silhouette and textures used (because you'd "expect more" indeed). You can get away with a lot more when using colors. For some reason all those shitty fashion guides online place way too much importance on color coordination when it's one of the least important aspects of an outfit in practice.

Is the black thick frame glasses trend finally over?


It's been for like a decade now, man.


Any of you got the hookup for a pair of decently priced japanese selvedge denim jeans?


Does Uniqlo still sell selvedge denim from Japanese mills?


god saw me wearing a crop top with leather pants and said you cannot dress like an 80s movie gang member


watching people make clothes is strangely soothing.


shit she's gorgeous here


Men in croptops is like women with short skirts. Very hot.
I'll take it.


Is he right about Hasan?
Is he breaking us out of the “NPC” matrix?


>youtuber slop
>outdated meme thumbnail


Yeah, I think dressing in a personalized unique way is more important than dressing "good".


>tfw you can be a fashion icon simply by mixing two things that don’t typically go together


i think the opposite, that "unique" doesnt automatically mean good, or rather, its not as clear cut as that. i disagree with the idea of "expressing yourself" via your clothes too tbh


Does this mean that I can detectivemaxx and engage in tactical espionage action in the same fit?

thicc frames have always been seen as dorky i think
wire frames have the benefit of metal=shiny and being more understated i think


The more fashion conscious prefer thick frames while wire frames are nowadays associated to self-conscious nerds
