Can I get a legit check on them? A friend of mine bought those, but I'm a little bit upset to the fact that he got some fakes. He bought those from a friend of him that works in a store. But buy a mainline pair of ramones at 240€ is even too good to be true
Found creeper boots for 250$ with such bottom. Is it fucking disgusting fake?
Is this pineapple legit?
Asking it here because it's literally every other comment
is 250$ shipped a good price for black prisoners?
Sorry if someone that doesn't know about Rick, tries to understand more about it asking to people that are more acknowledged.... Everybody starts from somewhere, also you have been a fucking ignorant so stop lolling
youre the guy trying to sell that bomber on grailed right, i would cop but not for the price you have it up for right now, you have to consdier that this thing isnt mainline and it has some serious damage.
If you want to learn more about Rick and his work, maybe you should ask about that. Instead of a legit check on your second hand Geo's
fit from a few months ago
long knit vest w/ basic AE thermal under
think a cropped jacket over it would make it better..
Never smelled it before but I'm about to cop some CdG Wonderwood. I like woody, masculine scents and figured it might go well with the Rick aesthetic.
Thoughts? What colognes or perfumes do you guys wear?
I ended up getting a different Rick blazer, same cut but 100% wool. I wear that with with wool tailored pods and sock Ramones. Works really well. I wouldn't wear drawstring pods with a blazer without hiding the strings at least.
Yeah i tuck the drawstrings on my pods, looks a bit sporty and casual with them out
looking at getting some tailored wool pods aswell actually.
Do you wear your adisocks in that fit?
I usually hate superstars but I don't hate these. The larger sole balances out the shell-toe which would otherwise be too bulky for my liking.
I really want to see what the other low-tops are. There are no clear pictures of them.
Oh man when the Farfetch pre-sale started they sold out for like 500, or maybe even lower? I don't remember. I just remember that iamwiliiam guy posting all his Farfetch pre-sale cops and he got EVERYTHING I wanted in my size, except those shoes i think -_-
Yeah I was eyeing these on Oki-ni recently actually. They're super nice.
Think I want ramone socks first though.
Thinking of selling alot of Rick actually.
Moved away from some of the casual stuff like cargos and ramones into more runway stuff and suiting.
41.5 ramones and xs cargos might be up on grailed soon, and some 41 limo creepers. I'll keep you updated rog
I actually like them more with the drawstring pods with the strings tied on hidden. I wear it with a long Raf coat from 98, it looks really cool like pilgrim goth haha. It's very one dimensional though, otherwise I only wear my guidis with slim bottoms because how slim the toe box is.
I've been kind of the same lately. Been eating up runway and tailored Rick.
First Rick type fit I've thrown together. How'd I do?
Bro I asked a legit check for my friend because I had the doubt that the shoes were fake, is probably the third time I write on ROG in 3 years that I'm into 4chan, is a board made also to question answers people have. I mean just skip the pic and u fine fucking hysterical old man
Price / interest check on this parka in dark dust cw? I have one that I don't wear too often and I wanna know what I can get for it
Going to be copping for gf I think
What cycops are people getting?
nothing exciting. I'm looking for easy Astaires and cropped Astaires in the 96/4 virgin wool elastane blend.
Secondly, the goat leather creepers are really cool.
I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the collection, namely the translucent leather bombers.
Also I've been thinking about constructing a rather in depth Leather jacket guide, the last one was err..a bit lackluster should I say.
Leather jacket advice gets called for quite a lot in here I've noticed.
Is it worth the undertaking? Are you guys gonna appreciate it?
yo, noricks here, thinking about buying my first piece since i need a pair of black shoes. Thinking about buying some used ramones boots after looking around a bit. My question is, will I be able to look good wearing these with normal clothes or will I have to blow more money on more rick in order to properly rock them without looking like an idiot?
If you want the Ramone boots, you'll need a wardrobe to accommodate that look. Or else you'll end up like pic related.
If you want mainline Ramones you need to work around the fact their really chunky. This might look a bit out off place in regular fits.
My advice, go for the canvas DRKSHDW ones. their not as chunky, expensive or hard to style
I've got the DRKSHDW Canvas Ramones and don't have a full Rick Wardrobe. They can be worked into almost any fit and they look great.
Thanks for giving me a starting point. At least on Grailed, the ramones boots are the cheapest I can find in my size, the canvas ramones are around 500 while the boots are around 300. I think I might just play it safe and get something a bit more basic, I saw some CPs for around $200 that looked nice or acnes. I could also probably work someone down to a better price selling island dunks, I kinda like those
>inb4 i'm a meme
Already bookmarked :)
I swear it depends on the store you buy from.
Well I'm a true S in non-rick tops, and I got my prisoners in XS. I guess you could call it "sizing down" then. But if you check the size chart on rickowens.eu, it says XS = 29. I'm a 28, and people say XS (at least in prisoners or pods) fits 28-30. So it's actually true to the size chart.
The last few seasons have fit more slim than earlier seasons. My previous prisoners from Vicious in an XS fit perfect, the Sphinx ones I have are too slim for my liking, mostly around the calves. They are also a touch shorter.
Are you talking about Astaires trousers, cropped or not? The smallest size produced is a 46 which in my experience fits 29 true in the past few seasons. Could work fine for a 28.
That being said that price is pretty low, I'll be lucky to find a new pair sub 300.
Hard to say. I'm seen aircuts in 32 that fit like a 30. Older model. I don't know what's up with those. I wear my pods and prisoners at the hips, fairly low, and do not need to cinch them at all. I'm a 29. They've been fitting like a 28.
46 sell out full price pretty much anywhere. You will not find them for 300 new unless you are very lucky. Especially the cropped Astaires.
Anything sub 400 is a good price for them. I had seen them occasionally reach the 290-350 range but rarely.
I asked a sales lead at the NY store about this and she said it always sells out quickly and they were lucky to even have them when I was there, and even then they only had the one pair of easy Astaires, not even cropped.
I was hoping the next few collections would focus on the tailored aesthetic again, unfortunately that's not the case. For the time being we'll have to hope more retailers realize how popular these are in this size instead of trying to buy the whacky runway stuff. Totokaelo is good about buying the tailored pieces but they always buy huge sizes - I'll be lucky if they even buy a 46.
I have these in white and they're great. Haven't seen the black ones in person, but /rog/ was griping about how shiny they are. The ebay pair are 2015's which look more plush than the 2016's, at least on the rick site. Can't beat that price tho. Here's a better image.
Wooooahhh, that explains. My XS FW14 pods are close to being too big on me, but I tried some S 2015 prisoners and they fit almost the same. So post-14 Xs Should be perfect for me.
Idk why certain people get shit regardless of their fits. Weird little butthurt hivemind that prevents y'all from being nice to like 3 of the people that actually show their face.
getting my tax refund next month and planning on buying some geobaskets.
which ones should i get?
Nike ones definitely don't, as they're a bit more techy. I have some women's leggings from a normie-tier clothing store made of a more cottony blend. They'r a little looser on the calves and they stack quite well.
Honestly every Rick piece on ssense right now is styled poorly. One of the problems I see is not choosing the right size for the model. Often they will pull all of the model's size and take it to the shoot, so it's a logistical nightmare either way if something fits poorly. Then they got a million other things to shoot. Not a lot of room to play around. Just pin it, move on.
Holy fuck yes
I've been pushed off buying stuff when the model looks like trash and then they give the measurements and what the model is wearing and im like what the fuck why is he sizing up
The past couple years they've totally boned the Julius sizing. It's clear that whoever pulled the sizing for those pieces had no idea what they were doing so the shots ended up with size 4 bottoms which are like a 34 waist. Looked like total garbage, all of those pants went to full reduction. This last collection they actually chose the correct sizing.
Right I'm starting my leather jacket guide thing because I have a bit of spare time, but its going to be a slow process, cause work and such, and I'm gonna have to do a bit of research. Maybe only 1 a week or something like that.
Any of you guys have a preference for what Jacket to go with first or want me to go by popularity?
I love looking at this, not sure if it gets posted often
Guys we need to post more inspos in these threads
been looking for a grungey, brown/green rick parka for a while and the search is getting wearing
considering copping this from cav empt instead, c/n? should i give up the search for now?
anyone know what leather this is? Not in the leather code
Yeah I think thats what Im seeing. Is that considerably a good leather compared to, say washed lamb? I can basically choose either this jacket or a washed lamb one in a similar cut (intarsia or ricks jacket)
This is the vege dyed one. I think its a mid, but I could be wrong.
It has a similar appearance (leather) to my Spring/Summer Stooges which is LPV and is a thin calf leather. The V may stand for vegetable but I've never worked it out as I bought from Vestiaire without tags and the Farfetch listing of the code only linked to thumbnails and no webpage.
I get told that stuff more than I think of it on my own. I own property that's paid off in full but people think I should invest the bit that I spend on Rick on a new house. I have a walk in closet and it is full. Can't even fit a tee without throwing another one out. So yeah I think about it.
Trust me they are in good hands now :))
Photographer friend was at Trickys party
i know mate i honestly got a stress headache when that sold
gonna have to message the seller - my budget is pretty much exactly what it sold for
Jason hoodie or asymmetrical hoodie? Jason is a little plain and asymmetrical is a little gothwizard-try-hard. Already have gimp.
Gothwizard-try-hard was my nickname in college
I'm not sure what I think of Cableknit sweaters with Rick fits but I sure am doing it.
Do you guys have any inspo pics for pants like these?
ID on anything here?
only pic ive seen of someone wearing them online, can get more for you if you really want them
can also vouch for the fabric on these
Is that a Geobasket joke or do you actually recommend sk8 his with long sweats?
Did you buy these because they were cheap on grailed? They're comfortable but not super good for a lot of Rick looks. The bottom of the pants are so wide they have to be put over most shoes, not super easy to tuck.
Blistered lamb has always been my ultimate Grail, and something that definitely stands out - though possibly not the most durable option.
Im actually pretty keen on one of those too. I saw one on grailed in L but its dark shadow colour (grey). You think its worthwhile to dye it black professionally? or wold that fuck it up
Rick on sale right now, most 70-80% off.
some 90% off.
Mostly teens and pants.
Nah, don't dye something like a jacket. Especially not with how porous blistered lamb is, I think it would take dye in a really patchy way. Also, most home dyes are garbage and make leather super stiff and crackly.
this is a really good sale for basics. They've got pretty good colors and desirable sizes left in a lot of t shirts and all way cheaper than anyone will ever take for secondhand shit on grailed even.
Good job sneaking your reference code in there ;)
Yeah, 50 is a large in newer ones but they fit a size smaller at least. I'm a S/XS in Rick shirts but a 48 in jackets. 52 corresponds to XL, which is what you would want. I'm not even sure about how often 54/XXL is made but I've never seen one.
Yeah I agree! I was nervous when I got mine at first (in the pic) but it's definitely more durable than it feels.
Probably wouldn't put it through the same gauntlet I would take a heavy calf jacket through though. It's stronger than cotton/wool and relatively low on the leather strength scale - but still on the scale.
btw, in leathers, big sizes does not mean fatty friendly, but more muscular friendly. bigger back and shoulders and the change at the waist increases less than proportionally. so if you have big belly, taking 54 is not going to work
Weird, the hoodies are what got me into rick. I kept trying to find a really good but simple hoodie design. Most hoodies, designer or otherwise, or hoodies in fancy materials always look so generic. The pockets on rick hoodies really did it for me. At the time time the Jason hoodie would have been perfect but now it feels so plain.
You think $300 for a hoodie is a waste? How about $150 for a tank top?
Im actually still having trouble finding a good size since I dont really know if im L or XL. Suit size wise, 50 is a bit snug, 52 is more comfortable. However, When i try on outerwear (jackets), a 50 fits fine on me even if my chest is around 42'. I am a pretty wide and muscular build so not fat =)
Debating if I want to cop cargobaskets, otherwise I think I would save a little more and buy a Geo jacket
has anyone seen this photo from someone selling geos before? no tineye results.
just bought them for 280 but weary due to price with box and spare laces.
purchased through paypal so no real worry about being scammed except for the massive waste of time (had this happen 3 times already on rick items...)
can someone please post that rick reaction image where he kind of looks like this?
I found it
Thanks man I was looking for that one too.
exactly this style, but i have XS!! left contact details in pic
pretty big and explodey desu
another pic if anyone has seen...
one last. his cartier bracelet looks real so hopefully he just hooked me up
They're too chunky for lose pants imo. might pull out the converse
Might vans slip ons work? I'm gonna buy them anyways for summer because they work best with the cropped pants
Yeah, there are different versions. Both the mainline and DRKSHDW have bombers. And they come in lots of different materials. There are different styles of the ma-1 too like the embroidered ones and the reflective ones. I can't say I know which ones are the "grails" but i'm sure someone can share
Although >>10913624 Makes a point, The ones with embroidery (not just interior words like I was talking about) Are very very sought after and sell at pretty consistently high prices.
Basket creepers arrived today! So gorgeous.
Think I'm going to sell my ramones though to be replaced by them, into more of the runway look and I've found I only wear my ramones with prisoners.
>Although >>10913624 Makes a point, The ones with embroidery (not just interior words like I was talking about) Are very very sought after and sell at pretty consistently high prices.
I personally dont really care about that, more just about the material. Has he kept to the same material for his bombers? (mainline and dkshdw)
There's multiple leather variations, but AFAIK the non-leather ones are (nearly) alway cotton - there's some nylon ones out there but cotton is pretty common/best IMO. Most of what he does to differentiate is in the details like embroidery/straps etc.
