SS16 will be everywhere soon, let's talk about it.
what are yall's favorite season from rick?
For me, FAUN was my favorite show. It left my jaw on the floor in a way no other presentation had, agender alien vibes.. However, LIMO had my favorite pieces to actually wear. The layering of tunics just does it for me.
although I do want one of the shorter tunics from FAUN to wear to art parties.
But there needs to be some desire for the item, as well as distinction from current seasons. Dunks still sell for 1k+ Because there's nothing similar on the market now. But people trying to sell plain tees and shorts from dustulator for the same price as stuff from sphinx because it's "archival" are doing it wrong.
>DRKSHDW Flight Jacket
>Double Layer Tee
>Julius Jeans / ILU Zespy's
>Guidi 988's / Tech Runners
What's your Rick Owens "uniform"?
Mine is high neck, I find it to be pretty versatile. I wear it as often with pods and drapey tees as I do with jeans and regular shirts.
Pic related, what I'm eyeing up at the moment.
Detroits are slim tapered I'm pretty sure. I always get confused between that and Torrence.
The tags attached to the belt loop look legit from that picture, and Rick jeans are very rarely targeted for replicas in my experience. It'll be something more recognizable. But if you want to be sure, get pictures of the interior tag!
I think anything that is specific to an older season and wont be made again.
Like the embroidered faun stuff, for example.
It depends if you view the term 'Archival' as directly related to time, or rarity.
Womens sphinx was my favourite visually, I cant lie about that. I also really loved Mens Sphinx, Plinth and Gleam (Gleam blazer is a grail)
Also guys, i'm still taking Codes and colours and stuff. Considered setting up an email but I think we're got all of the common ones so there shouldnt be so much shitting up the thread.
glad the list came so far didnt think people would commit to making a full list, heres a couple of my things
/wl - 57% wool 43% viscose
/wp - 100% cotton (waxed)
/mr - 100% cotton
0028 - bone
0024 - resin
i also got something from 2010 with 0018 as the colourcode for dark shad so maybe he expanded his colours at some point after
Anyone know a retailer where I can get some all black Ramones?
what pants do i wear with geos? all of my current pairs become untucked from the shoe even if I lace them around the back and they end up stacking and looking like parachute pants.
not same guy but
For example the vicious runners, they were released two seasons ago but were title "vicious runner" even though it had a slight thinner design and wasn't from the vicious collection but the original design came from that collection
Dang Rick looks v pretty in that pic <3
As for me
> chunky ass knit from moody
pic not related
Holy shit this is absolutely insane!
>wanting to wear chads leftovers
don't get dunks
you will pay way too much for already broken stinky old shoes
if you got the cash get new ones second hand otherwise go for a different shoe
I've never bought any used shoes, and I would generally advise against it unless they're very lightly used. Leather shoes in particlur break in to the shape of the wearer's foot, so they're likely to be much less comfortable if they've been heavily worn by someone else.
Oldest thing I bought was a jacket from 3 years ago. It was in pretty good condition and I don't even consider the fact that it was used when I wear it.
Do you people actually go out in these dastardly clothes? Shame on you. This is some serious Satanism at work.
Christ compels you.
Help me out /ROG/
Been working out and cycling alot lately and my legs are starting to get hueg. Now when I wear my Acne Aces I'm beginning to look more like a sausage than anything else. I've been wanting to get a pair of Rick denim for a while and I think this is a pretty good excuse to pull the trigger.
What would you recommend in terms of cut? Still want a skinnier fit but making my legs look like tubed meat is not something I enjoy
If they are leather then yes that's a fine price. If drkshdw then you could go way lower.
Undercover delivers notoriously late and sporadic in western countries.
Man what a beautiful shower.
Been thinking of copping a pair to go with rick stuff
Do you own the regular ones or joggers? How did you size on them, they looked really slim from the pics so I was thinking of sizing up. How's the quality?
And do you have any fit pics
Dunks were used in dustulator, IIRC. No other seasons since. And one of the 2012 seasons used ramones boots tucked in to trousers. Other than that, I don't think any non-adidas sneakers have been used on the runway.
Should I Jason Markk these or leave them be? They're pretty aged so I was gonna clean them up, but the age on it's starting to grow on me.
Clean them, sure! That won't get rid of the yellowness, in my experience, just the dirt. And then give them a good coat of some conditioner or oil, since the leather is probably a little dry. Just don't paint them back to white!
Plenty of non adidas shoes have been used on the runway since then. Only Faun, Sphinx, and now Mastodon have been exclusively adidas.
Moody weren't sock Ramones either, they were the cap toe and Goodyear welt mudder boots.
Cyclops, hook socks. Moody, Ramones mudder. Mountain, laceless Ramones. Release, turbo (hoof) dunks.
But yeah, Dustulator, Moog show off the dunks. Rest of the season focus on boots, or adidas sneakers.
The official color was Pearl. They've yellowed quite a bit, they definitely aren't the same Pearl that he produces now. They look like my "nipple" colored Rick tee from 06
I got these awhile ago now. I believe they are from Island. Purchased them new on sale for about $400, back when Ramones weren't so hyped. Idk what happened but now I see all these streetwear (read: China new money) kids wearing Ramones in place of Geos, now geos can be found for real cheap.
Yeah ramones have definitely gone through the roof.
Saw some newmoneyasian rocking reversed leather ones in town today.
Surely if they were Island they would have the shiny special racc pull?
So I've been wondering this as well. I haven't seen a pair of Ramones with the flat silver pull, unlike Plinth which did use them. I'm pretty sure they didn't make Ramones with the Island pull. I also know that these certainly aren't any earlier than that because Totokaelo didn't purchase men's clothing any sooner than Island. It's the old product code so it couldn't be any later than Island.
That's odd, I grant you. I'm pretty sure geo's had the island pull, and island clothing definitely did. I can't say I've seen ramones with that pull off the top of my head, so you may well be right.
I'm in love with deerskin geobaskets but I've never seen a pair that didn't get a huge crack along the toe box (see https://www.grailed.com/listings/362682-rick-owens-deerskin-geobasket as well as many other grailed listings). Is this just unavoidable on the more delicate leather? It's enough to put me off tracking down a pair, even though they're my dream geos. I really like the way they age in terms of color and texture but that rip is just too much for me.
I've thought about that being a possibility! I'm not entirely sure how easy the papery leather would be to condition, as I could see it absorbing any oils in a patchy sort of way.
what watches would you guys say go well with these ricky fits?
At the store the only ones I've seen employs wear are like silver/black-faced rolex's that aren't too overstated.
I very rarely wear watches with full rick fits, because I feel like they don't fit the look super well. But if I do, I prefer as minimal as possible - a silver timex weekender with a single-piece flat black leather strap. Like pic related except I made my own strap
I wear a black on black movado bold. its chunky, extremely minimalist, if you don't care about precision its perfect.
A similar but slimmer option is a murdered-out eco drive. If you prefer something a little more subtle in terms of watches.
There's a bunch of good colorways on grailed for 4 or 5 hundred in near new condition, various sizes. When I bought my Geos 6 months ago they were all above 600 for the most part, even the colors no one is in to. Also, a lot of the retail sales went as low as $400 recently, but with the start of the new season those are pretty much done now.
Vicious is the style not the season, like vicious socks or stuff like island dunks.
the piece looks legit but it would be best to get someone more experienced's opinion like nahk.
I believe RP is also unisex, not positive though.
could somone help me with a legit check? His pics are pretty shitty which makes me suspicious.
>Vicious is the style not the season
AFAIK this is true of some shoes but doesn't carry over to a lot of clothing. The vicious embroidery on bombers is specific to the season, where the on bombers from moody have "moody" embroidery and different lyrics on the inside. The bomber doesn't really have a name since it's a pretty long-running staple of his.
One last nail in the coffin, in case y'all needed it: I googled that code and it corresponds to a men's t shirt.
Damn good fake though.
You post this every day and get the same comment every time :/
People put the close to new ones up in the 1k range. I know the whole grailed thing of asking higher than you really want but you might need to pull back a lil more m8. There is a price where someone will buy your trashed dunks but it certainly isn't there.
I mean it's just a couple letters placed in a different orientation than normal... Is it bothering you enough that you don't want to wear it? I'll pay shipping if you send it my way. I like little imperfections like that. Rick is about that shit.
I don't mind but for the retail price they should have better quality control.
It's like if a Ferrari badge on the steering wheel was upside down in a new car. Doesn't really matter but how does this happen...
I mean, I guess it depends on how you define "defective." I'm sure Rick wouldn't let pods with the leg holes sewn up/mismatched out there, but a tag is such a small thing. I don't think many brands would scrap something over that, and I've found some pretty elitist brands at TK Maxx and the like before.
Are there any better photos of the brand new adidas stuff anywhere? I saw them on the runway but no site has mentioned them yet, and I haven't seen any clear photos. You can see the really exaggerative shell toes here, but there's also a really thin soled sneaker in the show that has to be Adidas.
Rick's show fit is always gorgeous. He sorta wears the same fit everywhere, but it's such a good look. As for the retail stuff - there's usually a good lag between runway shows and preview shots. Cyclops is only just hitting stores now.
There are plenty of seconds that make it to market. These are not bespoke small run goods. They are produced in a factory (albeit a reputable one). I've received plenty of defective designer garments, even Rick. The last pair of pods I bought were defective and needed an exchange. The butt pocket had two of the same side of Velcro sewn on, fortunately they were able to get a replacement directly from HQ.
My girlfriend and I were at a garage sell at Totokaelo this weekend where they had a number of defective Rick for really cheap, including a pair of the clog socks where the foot hole was sewn too small to fit a foot in. And everybody is aware of the vicious ankle boots that had SEVERE pink soles, they had a pair of those sell for $100.
/ROG/ is very fond of Rick shorts + leggings and Rick joggers. Elsewhere might have differing opinions, we're sort of a niche in this site.
Personally, whenever I see someone in regular shorts + leggings I assume they're going for a jog.
it's still a cool look but for the love of god stick to black shorts and leggings or otherwise you will look like this.
Thought Kanye might be wearing pods in that first pic but I think it's actually the Fear of God numbers that look exactly the same. I don't mind that fit at all, but I can see it not vibing too hard with ROG
Holy shit this is really starting to piss me off
The amount of people you see on Grailed who have literally just bought it all of yoox/spence or the like and are now selling it for 30% more.
Now that my rick footwear collection has grown pretty substantially, I dont find myself wearing much else apart from my Adisocks now.
How do I grow the bollocks to sell my other Ricks?
I've hardly worn my Geos or Ramones in months.
Can you guys help me find my shoe size in Rick?
I bought a pair of Geos a year ago that i now sold. They were a 42 and fit like 2 sizes too big on me
I'm a 41 in CP. Should i get my shoes in 40 or 41?
I hate insoles i already tried that and there are no insoles that fit a rick shoe all of them are too slim
Also i tried a 39 at a store and it was really tight but i got inside them.
I have milk ramones with synthetic upper. I like them, but I also like the black leather monochromes that no one else in ROG likes. The ss16 canvas milks look rad but will probably show every drop of piss you get on them.
You're like the only one. I think it looks like utter trash, which is why toto wasn't even able to get rid of those for 90% off. They were almost entirely pink, though, and there's nothing to be done for it. It's all because they have a super strong set of UV lights keeping their birds of paradise alive and it's near the shoes.
Pods and leggings are a staple right now. I don't wear my prisoners anymore because of it; joggers seem played out right now but whatever. Wear what you want.
It's annoying because most of that stuff is the leftovers that nobody wanted from other sale sites. Makes me sad, in a way. They'll never find a home :(
Dude the adidas are simply more comfortable. Mainline Rick sneakers are basically boots.
The honeymoon phase with my ramones is over, I'm finally able to wear my geobaskets again.
Yeah.. I guess it could be quite difficult.
My other idea would be to get them resoled with a creeper sole or a vibram or something. At the end of the day if you fuck up $100 you fuck up $100
Fabric man checking in again.
List is coming on great.
Im thinking of uploading it into imgur and have it copied into the /ROG/ header post?
cooped these my first drkshdw/rick piece got em cheap whited you think
Rick denim looks and feels very different to lots of others - not the longest lasting but it stacks beautifully, comfortable from second (if not first depending on cut) wear idk I think its fully worth it
Camo drkshdw one.
Wanted a black one but this was $30 so can't complain
fuck I bought these when I was drunk last night and couldn't cancel my order. are these fake, or just old stock?
If they're fake I can dispute through paypal, right?
I submitted a cancellation request but they shipped them anyways. Hopefully they can return or PayPal doesn't like that they shipped after I requested a cancellation.
Or the fact that they're not rick sold as Brand: Rick Owens.
Don't drink and shop.
If I get fucked worse case scenario I'll post some funny pictures of them here
holy fuck I bought these
NEW Bermuda Shorts RICK OWENS
almost full rick, feelsgoodman :^) i own a sweater but it wouldn't really work with this fit
also do my big calves + ankles make me look like a goober? used to cycle a lot but cant seem to get rid of huge calves even though my quads shrank a lot. Any ideas on how I can get em to shrink? Losing weight hasn't seemed to work; used to be 185-195lbs, now at 160 and still dropping to 140-150 range most likely.
feels v comfy/nice though, gonna look to finish this year with enough shit to wear all rick everyday if I want to
ignore all the ignorant fucks above
this is legit with a big BUT
those products are sold by dresspace.com a.k.a "rabaya" on ebay, they are part of the company "Vulpinari"
they had a lot of backstock Rick Owens when the items were NOT produced by Olmar and Mirta but by them, before 2004 (not sure what year)
the funky thing is that it seems (not 100% sure) they have the right to continue producing those particular items, with the old tags and so
quality is not that good and designs are old
so this pretty much means I'm stuck with those fucked prisoners and shitty bermuda shorts?
I wish they were fakes...
Thanks for the info tho, this will be an expensive lesson in staying off auction sites
source? "inside trading"
my advice? do not purchase old and ugly rick just because it is (or seems to be) tricky ricky, but you can do whatever you want
they have returns mate
I ordered my geos when I was drunk, but instead of fucking up I helped myself immensely. It was one of those places that includes customs in the fees for most countries, but not some smaller ones. So In america it was $800, but I accidentally overshot and selected "Vanuatu", which made the price $300 less (with expected import fees). But They shipped to my zip code so the country didn't affect anything, and I didn't get customs charged since it went to america.
I don't think it works like that anymore though.
Looks pretty good! Definitely build up some shirts now though, the one you have on isn't drapey enough for a true Rick look. I don't think big calves are super noticeable when the crotch of the pants covers most of them!
Adding to this, if you're in dire need there's a grip of silk/viscose tees on Myhabit right now, and all in normal colors (sand, dust, white, a few black). About $80 or less each, really good price!
Heck yeah, It's just last season stuff - which doesn't really matter since you're looking at staples that rick makes the same each season. They're an amazon spinoff for fashion.
One dude in this thread was complaining because a tag was sewn on in a different direction than normal, but that's a rarity you see in stores anyways.
Lmao why is that guy with all the Ramone socks selling them for a higher price than the new season retail
zz people neeed to l2grailed
Fucks me off when cunts buy one of every size from stores, and then I kek when the fuckers cant shift them and have lost a load of money
Like whoever bought the whole stock of mohair sweater from Yoox and is trying to flip them on grailed for more. They went to Yoox super sale for a reason.
I don't go to the gym really, but I bike ~6 or so miles a day to/from/around campus. And I wear Rick most days.
>tfw no Neo Bomber
How did he angle the zipper, yo?
>Womens shoes are narrower than mens.
In general yes, but I sort of doubt that any rick sneakers or rickdidas are different. Same with margom soles- no narrow widths. The sock runners for example would need double the number of lasts and patterns and molds for all women's and men's sizes that overlap. Even geos and welted creepers are super wide in women's sizes.
The seller is a friend of mine. They are real. It's a good price, I just wrote that because I don't think he knows my username and I encouraged him to buy them. I would have bought them if I didn't buy the black and white socks for myself; having two pairs of sock sneakers feels a little unnecessary as it is, let alone three.
Geobaskets are a grail of mine, what got me into Rick Owens initially, and next paycheck I'll have enough to cop. Two questions:
1. Is it a bad idea to buy Geos as my first Rick piece? They don't seem too hard to work with, but I'd like some second opinions. (Planning on the classic black/milk colorway, by the way.)
2. Should I wait for a sale? If so, when's the next sale period? I always miss out because I'm not in the know of when clothing goes on sale besides the winter holidays.
What's considered a good price for (allegedly) brand new drkshdw detroit? I have someone selling for SGD290, which is about USD200.
1) I got geobaskets as my first piece, and it worked out really well for me. Make sure you have slim black jeans and some looser fitting tops, that's most of what it takes. They do mesh better with full Rick, but I think it's best to start with footwear - you can't really wear pods and a double layer with anything but ricks, but you can wear Rick shoes with other fits.
2) I definitely wouldn't pay full price for them, with where sale prices have been going. Grailed has a few pairs up, and there might be some leftover from the previous winter sale if you scout around. But otherwise, next sale season won't be for a few months at least.
I might get flamed for this, but does anyone know where I can find a pair of replica Ramone lows?
This is my first foray into Rick, and I don't feel like the Ramones are worth the several hundred it will cost to pick up a legit pair, especially if I'm not even sure that I'll like the aesthetic.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
If you don't look at ramones lows long enough and eventually concede that you would pay at least 3 or 4 hundred, don't get them. But also, don't fuck around with fakes because they're not worth it, and you might as well just get some leather 70s converse or something.
Cheapest I've been able to find some is ~$350 which I'm not really trying to invest if I'm not 100% sure that I'll like them. I don't really care about being recognized as fakes, and I don't intend to pass them off as real. I just like the look but am not yet ready to pay the price (which I don't think is actually worth it).
Having no laces in my geo's is my thing St the moment.
Remember to mix it up guys :^)
