The last conspiracy
what brands besides ricks drkshdw line and some of the jeans from boris make denim that would fit the rick aesthetic?
I'm thinking of matias, and fagassent(inb4gay jokes).
also i guess i should add obscur
barbara i gongini
and taichi murakami
Zam barrett is the best jeans maker at the moment
Sometimes, you can find a compatible Doma or transit pant. But for both it's rare and their wool pants are better
Lentrian makes some sweet (and cheap) denim. By the way, right now their online store sales at -80% with a code which I won't give you because I'm a cunt
>I've seen these brands posted on SZ so they are probably good to mention
You can't possibly think that most of the brands you people listed look good with Rick or even together right?
Wtf are you talking about?? Have you seen Zam's in person or even in pictures?? They look like garbage and the quality is not much better either, unless you're getting some of his first pieces he was putting out you're gonna be getting the old Scam Barett BBC. Seriously please inform yourself before posting, there is nothing worth buying when it comes to his pants or even his other clothing for that matter. There are so many similar brands doing exactly what he is doing but much better.
Are the bamboo Ts so shitty they aren't worth picking up for $80 or so?
Also, can anyone comment on the quality of current UC double layers? I've only ever handles pre-2012 iterations and was wondering if they're still as good.
Yeah what the hell is going on with Oak? Their store in LA had a giant clearance and anything that didn't sell wound up at the American Apparel flea market. Got a pair of Oak jeans at AA for $19 and a pair of The Last Conspiracy horse boots at the Oak store for $55.
Just checked out the collections. Not bad. SS16 is pretty solid albeit boring. Nothing that would jive especially well with Rick.
Really digging the red fit in FW16 though. Def work with rick, minus the shoes
Holy shit guys i love fashion so much. My mom said i shouldn't spend all my money on Rick but i can't help myself. Cool clothes are amazing
How do you deal with spending all your money on designer clothes?
Just ordered a milk double layer for super cheap, but it's coming from Italy so it'll be a couple weeks before I actually get it.
Woo lad, even after owning multiple pieces / a steep discount, I still feel a little guilty paying $200 for a t-shirt.
I spent all my money on clothes and now im getting a job so I can pay for more clothes.
Its probably not a problem, just an alternative set of priorities (fugg I need money)
If you want to make fashion a priority on a minimal budget:
Buy as cheap as you can (circuitbird tumblr has the best guide for this
Sell stuff you don't wear (see NAKH)
Don't eat out
Buy a travel pass xD
Massive salon bottles of shampoo/conditioner
Get a partner that will motivate you
Get a rich partner
Learn to live within your means.
Sure we all like buying nice stuff for ourselves, but you can't live at home forever, there are more important things than clothes.
At least 50% of my income goes towards my 'buying a house fund'. I'm lucky enough to earn quite a reasonable amount and have guaranteed overtime up until my my overtime limit, and I use my overtime money as spending money so most of my actual contracted salary goes towards my savings
I'm still in college, but basically all of my expenses are covered by scholarship. I work so that I can eat, but I have enough excess cash that I can buy the occasional Rick piece, and I flip the occasional item when I want to buy something bigger. I've built my collection relatively slow over the past year but now I have enough Rick + Supplementary brands to have the look pretty much every day.
another anon here, I have owned tricky ricky, bbs and barrett jeans and the best for much are BBS. however, taking into account sale price zambos are not bad, do not exaggerate in both sides
What shoes is Bladee wearing here?
hour long documentary talking about the rise of Winny Puhh and how they ended up performing at RO in Paris
wtf i didnt know theo was black, although now that i think about it, theo does sound like a black kids name
Of course no sane person would wear this mattress on a daily basis. That's some shit that's meant to stay at weird fashion events. But there are Rick Owens pieces that are easier to wear and that actually look good even to the eye of someone who isn't into this aesthetic
All the rick shit reeks of faggotry, u will always look like a fuccboi, there is no reality where u can wear rick shit and possibly not look like a wannabe dark wannabe cool pussyboy. You are completely deluded to think otherwise and just convey how poor ur grasp of fashion is.
But hey, do what u want, I'm not gonna stop u from looking like a faggggg
can you guys post some pics of people pulling off light wash jeans with rick stuff? not just streetwear outfits with rick sneakers but actual "rick style" if you know what i mean. lately i've been getting in to rick, but my grail jeans just popped up for a good price (dior homme ss04 bleu clair waxed, pic related) and now i'm conflicted about whether or not i could work them into a more avant garde-ish wardrobe
"Rick Style" doesn't really incorporate light wash jeans IMO. They immediately make a fit look a lot more streetwear.
That being said, they do look real good with some Milk dunks/geos. Could probably be worn with a double layer tee in the right color for something a little more avant garde-ish. I can't really think of it fitting into a characteristically Rick Owens fit though.
Oh man, can we talk about people not pulling Rick fits off well?
This makes me so sad for Rick.
not even a Wayans brother can make brown geos look good
i hate how geos(/dunks) look when they're laced up loose like how the guy on the right has them, moving down the leg there's a fairly smooth line until BAM you hit the top of the sneakers just splayed out and it looks so sloppy. it can be pulled off but IMO it's almost always better to lace them up tight like this
i had a pair of detroits a while ago and one of the thigh darts was a good inch or two longer than the other, are they supposed to be like this or did i just have a bad pair?
fuck you m80
just because of that, I'm raising the price to 1 million USD
SS15, have a feeling they might be fake, but all the exterior shots seem to be on point with various product shots. And I know that Rick definitely makes changes from season to season so
That's the only one I have on the phone now>>10931404
I think theyre real. Looking at sz there are some real ugly fakes there, this looks legit. Draws are correct length, sku is correct, material inside and out checks out, dots on the image tag. Would love to get a second opinion tho. Good looks man.
What shoes do you wear with them. I'll have to just stick with normie tees for now. I have cdg and some other high end stuff but for draped tees all I have is void. I also have a pacsun fog tee and thermal, the thermal will be nice. But I'm shoe challenged.
Like >>10931490 said, they're all almost great.
I really don't dig the big Parts of Four stuff, they make some really good minimalist stuff but the massive chains and whatnot just don't appeal to me.
That being said the far left is an awesome fit. Would wear/10. I need that tabard.
Seriously though, just look at some collections. Julius, yohji, boris, and CDGH+ all offer fairly different takes on drop crotch which should offer a pretty good spectrum of styles.
I think he wants non-designer, sounds like he's saving for some ricks.
My advice: if you have converse or color-appropriate boots, try those. Maybe not work boots, but any sort of slimmer profile black boots should do.
The next evolution in Rick.
And Boris Bidjan copying, maybe -- which is funny, since it's copying Rick!
guys I know my question isnt rick related but i feel like this thread contains the most knowledgeable users of /fa/. anyways, do any of you know how much the undercover ss15 television jeans retailed for?
sage for off topic
Jacket is a blistered lamb intarsia
Sweater was knitted by my mother
First shirt is a Rick silk/viscose
Small bit of shredded shirt showing through is from an Alexander wang tee I've worn to death.
Parts of 4
first rick pieces, pretty satisfied
camera angle makes proportions look kinda off
>"Rick Style" doesn't really incorporate light wash jeans IMO. They immediately make a fit look a lot more streetwear.
someone should probably have told rick that before he spent two decades making heavily distressed denim
Zamb's aren't that bad, considering you can get a pair for 100 bucks on a sale. But it doesn't really fit the Rick aesthetic that well, It's more in line with the victorian look that a lot of the guys on SZ is going for.
1k to spend on clothes, any advice?
Just keep my prisoners
Already own a pair of ramones, but it doesnt have the toecap and I really dislike that. Maybe I could sell it for ~300-400.
Creepers if I can find a good deal
???, I like ccp and yohji.
As thank you, here is one of my favorite inspo.
Bless Hoodcoat. Suspension Point has a cashmere version up right now. They occasionally pop up on Grailed or Y!JP, too.
Gareth Pugh scythe rings.
Sole might be whack but it's hard to tell. Can you ask him to post more detailed photos?
At least get the gimp hoodie over the other one (Jason?). I've always found the simple ones kinda boring.
So cool. ID on pants?
I have pics wearing both on my Instagram (3rd one listed in the OP). I'm exactly that height.
I think the springblade boots are pretty cool
memphises aren't worth $400. cop some mineral coated torrences/detroits on sale, you can get them for about $150-$200. buy some creepers or any of the boots in general as long as they have a slim shaft.
Fuck you, Dom. They're real.
I was at H&M with >>10934304 earlier today. I occasionally buy basics there if I can find stuff that fits to my liking and would be good for layering.
Nothing in that picture is H&M save the socks which you can't even see. I pair Rick with normie clothes for now as I slowly buy more Rick pieces and work them into my wardrobe.
Saw tooth lacing is tight/best look for ramones. I don't think it belongs on every single pair of Rick shoes (Geos especially) But IDK why there's always one dude who thinks it's massively original to switch over to a criss-cross lacing.
where to cop this dude's shirt. help plox
i'm buying a l/s level tee and i don't want to end up looking like >>10933553 but i also don't want to look like i just bought an XXL hanes shirt like this kid. i'm 6'1 and ~145lbs and usually wear a medium, do you guys reckon i should size up to a large or just go tts?
You won't look like this kid in any size of Rick shirt really. His Represent Co. garms just can't handle any amount of draping, and even a size up in a Rick shirt will sit nicely on your body.
Also, wear it with oversized/flowy bottoms to avoid the r/streetwear long-tee-and-skinny-jeans look.
reminder you can get the same look from zara
I love this pic. I want the tabard on the left. In fact I want every tabard Rick makes.
I would happily own everything from Sphinx, by far my favorite season for both men and women
They look fine
rick would be disappointed in you
rick is big and gay and brash
wearing rick tamely means you are cucked 3 ways (at least)
1) yourself, for being a wimp
2) society, for making you scared
3) fast-fashion, for looking like a boring mallninja
Those fits are big, gay, brash, and poorly executed though. Disliking 4 fits for specific reasons does not mean we only like tame Rick.
The that a list of brands is even being made at all. Also m_moria does not fit the aesthetic at all in my opinion. Beautiful shoes, but even guidi is a stretch.
Maybe he meant Maurizio Amadei.
Tbh really skinny people work with rick stuff, even with the bare armed tanks and tabards
Infact I think I prefer slimmer skeletons in rick than built people, but it can be done wrong.
You just have to play to your strengths
Always wondered if Pod shorts were the only reoccurring thing to be in runway shows?
Albeit in different materials the pod short has been used quite alot recently (sphinx and cyclops off the top of my head)
Just wondered if any other season repeating item, like prisoners etc etc, was used in a season
it actually stands for geology, little known fact is ricks interest in rocks and minerals. rick is actually such a huge fan of rocks that he used a rock band in one of his runway shows
im attempting to get into rick and im on the bigger end
ive been looking for pictures of bigger guys in Rick but I can't seem to find them, would really like to see this. Otherwise I might become the first
5'9 200 lbs
its not really all in one place
my shoulders are wide, my thighs are large, I wear a 35/36 pant and L tee's
lmao lose weight im 200 right now from a bulk but im 6'1 and most likely have a less bf% than you
was 208 and cutting to 185 maybe less
difference is his sheer type t's and his tops (which always fit slim) are going to look better on pecs than flabby man tits. physique should come before clothes always
you probably do, pics of you wearing rick?
im not somebody who would wear sheer stuff anyways, I'm more interested in double layer, knits, longsleeves, etc.
Maybe if I was 40lbs lighter i'd wear sheer clothing, but i am not oblivious
DRKSHDW doesn't quite give the incredible stackage of mainline IMO. The fabric isn't twisted in the same way, just kind of folded over - so it will stack better than a regular tee, but not quite the incredible look of mainline. Worth it at the right cost though, and not a lot of mainline DL on the market at the moment (even fewer in unstable cotton, the ultimate shirt)
im pretty sure these are legit but just making sure, my first pair of rick bottoms, theyre supposed to be black prisoner pants in jersey, but the colour code says dark dust, is that fishy? the material seem ok, but there is another issue, the seller said that these are like new with no holes, but there are two holes next to the back pockets, wht do i do in that situation, i dont want to send them back as i got them quite cheap.
The code is legit for Prisoners. I would be suspicious of the colour change though, its possible that he dyed them. I cant tell for certain cause the image aint great but the actual tag looks legit.
Either way hes listed an item with false information, which I wouldn't be happy about. Especially if he has dyed them and they're damaged.
Contact him about said issues and see what he says about it, I would want them changed.
they dont look dyed to me, how does dark dust normally look? i was under the impression its a darker greyish brown,
i would contact him but hes been pretty unresponsive so far, ill just contact grailed with the issues and ask them what the best course of action would be.
yeah, i have just noticed that he has previouslly listed dark dust prisoner, with the axact same tag and hasent shipped them out even tho he recieved the payment from the buyer so he got a negative rating, im now pretty much sure these are dyed, even tho they look ok, ill try to get a partial refund.
thanks for the help.
I just ordered dark dust prisoners from grailed
heres the tag for comparison
