SS16 will be everywhere soon, let's talk about it.
Hmm, good question. I like the socks because they're much sleeker than the regular lowtop Rickdidas. But they still have the same Vicious sole. I find the bulbous split sole very different from other shoes and very interesting visually.
And, of course, the socks themselves are stretchy suede socks :)
Which y-3/yohji shoe would you prefer with this outfit?
At what point do you guys consider something to be archival? 5 years? 10 years?
What factors play into something being archival?
Do you consider dunks archival?
Just something to think about and a conversation starter, tell us what you think.
I have never formally studied fashion but I'd include pieces designed in an older, *different* era. There are some items that obviously have a certain designer's touch, but you still intuitively know that they are unlike anything they've done in recent times. That's where I'd draw the line between "newer" and "older" work.
I'd say anything from a previous season that is unique to it.
I'd consider the embroidered bombers, etc archive, even though they are only a couple of years old.
How is drkshdw jeans sizing? I wear either a 32 or 34 in most jeans. My waist size tends to fluctuate and Id rather go slightly bigger than too tight and uncomfortable. Help
>YFW you realize you can make everything they wear sans the shoes
Didn't get the chance to watch it but saw the stills when it first came out.
Wasn't impressed when I saw the stills, very "not my style" but the video definitely put forward the idea about "Mastodon" alot more, and I feel I get it more now
xs=30 at least in the aircut jeans I got.
People say the numbered sizes run big too, at least for memphis. Idk about jeans sized up but i wouldnt unless youve checked the measurements and youre sure
If you're a true 30 I would go with a small. I'm a true 29 and the XS is just a little tighter in the calves than I'd like, and the crotch area is not quite wide enough for my stride so if you're tall like me I would recommend a small.
I really dislike epaulets. The color also bums me out. Military clothing is not my thing.
Watching the show is important to understand the pants. Gave me a new appreciate for them seeing them move.
Should I pick these up? I really want a pair of pull on boots, but until they finally get reissued in new season, I'm thinking I should settle for these. And they'd look nice styled with just adidas track pants rather than always wearing out my prisoners.
Ive only recently started looking into preowned rick owens stuff, but was wondering how it is to find a intarsia mid collar in L from pre 2012? I almost bought a size S (measured larger apparently) from F/W Crust that was a mid collar similar to intarsia.
Definitely one of the trench coats. I love how the actual seams and stitchwork look like your grandpa's trench, but then it has that rick owens drape that causes it to look like robe.
I am very intrigued by the big, wooly, caveman shawls, but doubt I'll wanna spend as much as I bet they'll go for just to look like a fancy homeless person.
this mohair hooded tabard or the grey jersey hooded tabard from one of the earlier looks
Where are you seeing these? NAHK keeps saying the leather is disappointing. I've never seen in person by I love the style. Both heights and colorways are great, too. If I see a pair in my size for cheap I'll definitely cop. Then when they suck NAHK can say "I told you so".
it's the soles that are a real drag. they are light and ill-fitting. it's hard to explain, but other users here have felt the same way, it's not just me. they weren't popular when they were available either, most made it to full reductions. i've seen plenty get totally destroyed too... they don't feel very durable at all.
she is very old, and women don't age as gracefully as men. I don't think her age is public exactly, but she's much older than Rick and he's 53. Some people presume she's in her 70's.
shes a performance artist as well, her appeal is shes got a lovely voice and shes interesting and she dresses in full rick and shes beautiful??? thats not a nice question to ask also
Picked up these Mega Hoofbaskets yesterday for an insane price (<$300AU). I'm finding that it's best to wear them with simple clothing such as jeans / Prisoners and an extra long top - as anything too complex clashes with them. They work best when they are the stand-out piece rather than part of a more technical fit.
Any other advice / wisdom / tips I should consider with them?
I had to try and explain women strapped to women runway show to people tonight because it appeared on their facebook feed.
They didn't expect me to not just instantly laugh...then I explained my jacket was by that designer.
Just said runway shows weren't for just showing off clothes but some designers try to be creative and push ideas.
Quickly followed by
>how much was your jacket
>it feels really nice
>I didn't think it was leather
do OG dunks fit big like current geos do, or TTS?
what pants are good with geos? any pants I try to tuck in eventually become untucked (even if i lace them around the back). Prisoners seem like a good option. Any suggestions? or fitpics of prisoners+geos
New to RO, is there any way to get started for <1,000 USD?
Geos on sale for ~$600 or used for ~$450
Ramones on sale for ~$400 or used for ~$300
then get some prisoners (~$400) or pods (~$300) and shirts.
best to wait for sale season tbqh.
It's always funny to me, but I don't really mind. People around get weird if I tell them what I'm wearing or how much it costs. Or they talk to me about their Michael Kors purses or love for Zara or whatever. I'm fine being stealthy.
Its far from comprehensive at the moment
Don't want to shit up the thread to much so I was thinking about just setting up an email and sticking it in the OP post for people to send info to.
Any other ideas to try and get info to me without spamming the thread guys?
Pretty slim on the calf, but roomy at the ankle.
Yeah I guess, which is why i'm hesitating. Have the Adisocks already and I will definitely will be getting Ramone Socks aswell.
I love the B. Creepers but I don't want 3 different shoes for the same role if you get me
Then I would advise against copping a pair.
If you already have the Adisocks and you want some Ramone socks, you'll get a very monotonous collection.
Same reason why I don't consider buying Ramone socks anymore
I feel you, if I find them for a steal it'll probably change my mind.
Its just frustrating that theyre so gorgeous ._.
The only thing they have over the R. Socks or A. Socks is that they work well with denim I guess, but I doubt thats enough to convince me to have all three.
Yeah definitely, thats what I was thinking of doing with denim. As they pull off more of a boot vibe than either of the Socks they're slightly more versatile, as they work great with pods and then again great with denim.
God damn now I'm conflicted.
>God damn now I'm conflicted
Know that feel.
This is the only pic I got with mine, but you gave me a reason to repost so fuck it.
>Let me find my pants and see if I can take a decent photo with jeans
>I don't dig the coat or the white layer though.
I always want some Damir in my fits and you just spotted the only two lel.
Keen eyes you got.
Thanks hunny, been thinking about copping a Raisins T, you think that might work?
Advice is always welcome
Anyways pic related is the best I could do, sorry.
I think you'll find its comfy af.
Of all the people to get the mustard colour in there :^^
Legit, the reflective heel looks like it should do.
It does have variations season to season i've found
i sold my hammered lamb stag geo for 1100$, did i fuck up?
What are some ricky haircuts? I'm hella bored with my shitty hair.
Thinking of something along the lines of Jera's here, never really had long hair though as mine is super thick and just turns into a massive blonde mushroom
thats all i needed to hear bruv, thanks for putting me in a good mood
heres a picture of our lord and saviour shitposting on styleforum
ok don't be nxtlvl then
A Whopland is cool, but a bit outdated
Now a cyclopse cut, that´s nxtlvl
I'm looking to buy RO leather jacket but I don't know which one to get. What would be the stable first choice in Rick leather jackets?
ay ricky g
considering copping this beautiful intarsia off rakuten, only issue is, i'm really not a fan of slim fit - i'm like 5'10 and skinny, would this fit baggy or slim?
dont think slim fit looks decent unless its done top and bottom half and all my trousers are pretty loose; cargos etc
Theyre Obscur jackets if im remembering correctly. I guess it comes down to personal preference but I think most of the jackets put out buy this label are incredible.
Ive heard mamma say really good things about his
oh shit i forgot to say its a small, yeah that was my thought, i do have slim trousers but it would restrict what i could wear it with
desu its a decent price i might have to yolo it m8s
What do you think of the cyclops season runners? Theyre going pretty cheap now. 1/2 size big i heard.
that picture of the Sphinx runners. Cyclops is grained leather:
I like the sphinx ones more, that adidas grained leather ages like shit.
What about OG welted creepers? I slept on baskets and got the a pair of these. Considering that all the other rick shoes I'd like to pick up have sneaker soles, I think it'll good to have. They are a little plain tho, but solid. Ann D has some good boot alternatives too.
>condition is grood
'grood' describes these shits perfectly boy
all grood and nasty
been sweating in these jawns for damn near half a decade and u wanna swing them for over a grand? shits broken
i'm really like the vicious ankle boots rn
i don't own any RO though and don't particularly resonate with much of the clothing (or have the money to drop on a few pieces)
does anyone think the ankle boots are versatile enough to work with other designers or let's say more basic shit?
fyi would only be copping on sale and in black desu
can't tell if there's any useful info here for the list. These are the 2015 cotton/polyamide uppers (images of the cyclops version look slightly different). I don't know why it says neoprene, bc I'm pretty certain neoprene is the wetsuit material that the scuba socks are made from.
Color codes: 01 bleach
everyone here will disagree but I reckon you could get away with sock runners and skinny/slim black jeans rolled up high.
There's some ladies sizes for <$500 if you're feet are US10 or smaller. Also, these are the taller version. not ankle.
Where can i get one of these for cheap?
onyx is good enough i don't need a fucking asteroid for 1k
I see you changed your listing just now, where before it said not accepting offers under 1k it says not accepting under 750. That's much more reasonable. If that heel repair wasn't shoddy it would probably get more offers up there.
>slipped through the cracks
this man slick i'll give him that
also, search "Black Onyx Stone Pendant. 26mm. Sterling Silver Jump Ring. Add on Cord. Polished Natural Stone. Tear Drop Pendant. Chunky Pendant"
Looks pretty similar to what you posted for 0.4% of the price
Tried posting the link but spam filter didn't like it
sorry idk if it's my inexperience with the nomenclature but i mean pic related, i hope we're on the same page
i'm a US 7.5 in qasas if that helps at all with sizing (meant to ask if these run TTS or not in my last post)
appreciate the help and patience /ROG/
My friend told me there was a giant Rick book for cheap at my local store. I was hoping for the official one but it was pic related.
So "sock runner" is the officially name for these. Go TTS or a half size down, depending on the width of your feet. Not as easy to pull off without a Rick wardrobe as some other pieces (e.g. Ramones) but can work pretty well with any right black jeans/joggers and drapey t shirts.
My gf is very into not owning a lot of stuff/spending a lot of money on clothes but I've talked her around to liking Rick Owens/clothing as an art form, which I think is more important than the actual desire to wear it.
He looks so happy :^))
Honestly I couldn't picture a better match for him. Partly from seeing interviews of the two talking about each other but also because he clearly doesn't follow a standard idea of beauty in any aspect of his life.
honestly what is peoples beef with michelle shes got wrinkles get over it christ
shes honeslty the best dressed older lady ive ever seen, she seems like a creative and spiritual champion and she designs sick jewellery
good luck with your boring suburban bleached hair wives
The show was pretty nice imo. Lots of wide legged pants and over sized coats, it almost looked like a yohji collab or something. Where those short ramones I was seeing or were they some kind of rickdidas pro-models? I liked the bleach orange colors near the end.
Yes, we're on the same page. I forgot to add the link tho: http://www.mytheresa.com/en-us/suede-sneaker-boots.html
these more expensive than the ankle heights but a good price for them. UK6.5 might work but you may want to size down in which case there aren't any relevant sizes available.
Legit check on these rickdidas?
How is sizing on rick leathers? I'm 6' 160ish and was thinking about a 48-50? Usually a medium to large in most things and I have an old cotton Naska bomber style jacket in a 54 but it's definitely a little big
I'm living the real struggle.
>been trying hard
>cant decide what style I want
>end up accumulating so many random style clothes
>No proper fits
>half my clothes don't work together
>pretty much gave up and dress like shit
>feel bad all the time
>hips too wide
>need to be buff if I want hips to look normal
>to this day continue lurking hoping for inspiration
half that can be solved with just eating more and working out everyday to put on some muscle.
i suffered with my /fa/ identity for a long time and lost sleep over what kind of aesthetic I wanted to commit it. it just took time and honesty with myself to decide, don't stress over it. work out more.
Keep doing that until you have multiple wardrobes depending on the day. I switch back and forth between what style I like most a lot, so over the years I've built up a solid wardrobe for prep/normcore/Rick/workwear/streetwear. I can be a different person every day!
He's polyamorous for sure. Monogamy isn't very suited to Rick's ethos. But she is definitely his wife, which is a special bond regardless of sex.

Has anyone here bought Geobaskets for retail?
I've been trying to find sales on black and white Geo's since Christmas but I've had no luck and am starting to think about pulling the trigger and buying them for retail off of Rick's site. Should I just be patient?
does anyone have any other pics of ramone boots with laces? i saw this on google images and i like how the tight laces are sort of squeezing them around the ankle/calf
I got some up on grailed for $500
Bought them retail for 850 euros and they fit too big
Shit sucks hard and this is probably the best deal you will get on the net senpai
I wore them a few times bc they look amazing but i came to realise that i should rather sell them and get another pair in my size
Mostly rick today
Still cant decide if I should keep these pants or not. In a perfect world I would just trade them with someone who has a smaller size.
Devoa Bison Leather, so fucking nice. They have aged incredibly. Honestly prefer these to the guidi derbies I've seen, have a much more matte finish.
Agreed on the pants. I cuffed them to fit that high, would cuff them lower but they start to flair out which is not a good look at all
Cropped Swingers from Anthem
Undercover Shawl Neck from T
Fits very oddly in places and the fabric isn't the best but it's still such a great coat
Mexican guy with the Ankle runners here once again.
What do you guys think of my all Rick fit? It's a little incomplete right now but I will get there one day.
always size up on rick leather. i fit a medium in every top on the planet and my size 50 stooges fits me perfectly. if you fail to size up you'll rip the armpits pretty much immediately
I spend too much time on second hand sites, thats basically what it comes down to. If you pay close attention you can find some great pieces for the low low
personally i wear basically nothing but rick and i think cdg fragrances go best with my aesthetic. they're always subtle and weird and occasionally a little bit off-putting but generally really good smelling anyway. avignon in particular feels somehow very appropriate
why do you want geobaskets? what is your budget like? if you're just hypnotized by the hype and flashy photosets and you think they'll make you look incredible and you're scraping money together for the purchase, don't do it- you'll be wasting your money. on the other hand, if you have thousands of dollars sitting around burning a whole through your pocket, buy them.
if you think they're cool but you're not totally sure if they're for you, buy a pair secondhand. that way if you get tired of them you can do what i do and get your money back by selling them for what you paid to some rando on grailed. (i would be cautious doing this because there are a lot of fake black and white geos out there)
if you just want rick shoes to go with rick-heavy fits, you can find much cheaper and frankly cooler options than geos. all sorts of rick boots regularly sell in deadstock condition on ebay for as low as 300 usd even in the most expensive sizes.
Can someone give me a lowdown on DRKSHDW Detroits? What is the measurements for a size 30?
Controversial opinion, FAUN was my favorite season of recent years.
Is anyone lurking?
Found an old Grailed listing with measurements: https://www.grailed.com/listings/55545-rick-owens-drkshdw-skinny-detroit-cut-jeans
I know SSENSE and some other sites also have measurements for products
Yes people are always lurking
Thanks for sharing!
i think this would be better suited for someone with bigger arms, you kind of look like youre wearing a runway look, while not being on a runway, can def see it working with a jacket or coat tho.
Yeah that's my point. drkshdw = 8 eyelets, main line = 7 eyelets. main line (afaik) is only leather. Shoes in the vid do not look like leather, but have 7 eyelets, hence my question "what's up with that?"
