newfag here, im getting a job soon and would like to invest in at least one rick piece. aside from geobaskets/dunks and ramones, are there any other pieces i should concider buying? and if not other pieces, what colorway of the geos or ramones?
Hoping someone here has some idea on this:
Basically thinking about buying this Ricks Jacket leather from ss 2009 Strutter size L. I recently just went to try on a size 50 mollino from ss 2015 faun and it was wayyy too small, would likely fit 52 or 54 in new ricks best.
I know that his sizing has changed from his older years and now, and theres been constant confusion of what an L means in jacket size, and also what an L means compared to new rick size.
SO! If anyone know anything about this jacket, please lemme know if this will fit me. I heard new mainline rick jackets fit a size small, so i guess i realisitcally tried on a size 48. When I try suits on, 50 fits me pretty slim, 52 fits me just okay.
do you guys remember when rick said he wanted his runway shows to showcase something people would actually wear on the street vs being "artsy" for the sake of showing off an aesthetic?
i feel like he gets further away from that with every collection.
he says he's grown into the whole runway thing and looks forward to it now, so yeah he has definitely had a change of emphasis but I don't think there is much in his collections that aren't wearable
I have a Faun Mollino and a strutter intarsia. The Mollino is a 52 and fits perfectly. The intarsia is a large and it fits but I would ideally prefer more room in the shoulders.
Hope that helps? Basically L is very slightly smaller than 52 imo, but it could just be the different cuts.
Personal preference. Silk/viscose is slightly better than cotton in that it doesn't pill or fray as easily but I haven't tested that.
I love the double layer tees. Very unique. Longsleeves, short sleeves, tanks are all good for layering. I don't really like the deep v-necks myself. There are some tees I personally don't like, like the draped tees, the graphic tees etc
Its a bit of a mess, considering that a 52 in Faun might actually be slimmer and closer to a real 50. Do you mean to say that a L in strutter might be slightly smaller than a new rick 52? Realistically, meaning its closer to a real 50?
Any info on sizing for stretch ankle split-sole runner? I have a pair of the regular split runners and had to go a full size down but haven't heard anything definitive about these.
Just received a mid-neck mainline intarsia leather jacket w/ the strap from A/W 2010, RU1761.
It's a size large and it doesn't fit me :(
how much should I sell it for? If anyone wants to buy it email me
2 big 4 me, I must be a tts medium
drkshdw bombers are lower quality and not easier to wear. go for mainline if you have the funds, more luxe and pretty basic too if you're worried about that. they're pretty versatile, though I would recommend ramones/boots as a first piece.
thanks. is the quality that much lower? i've handled mainline but not the diffusion line. what brand would you compare it to quality wise?
honestly it's just a matter of me getting lucky on grailed/ebay, there just tends to be a lot more drkshdw, i guess it's for a reason.
I had a drkshdw bomber and honestly was not very pleased with the quality. Sold it and got a silent bomber which was much better imo, then eventually bought a mainline. Definitely avoid the drkshdw if possible.
got all white tech runners in US 11 for sale ( better suited for an 11.5) wore them once and came to grips with the fact that they're too big for me. asking 200 usd + shipping.
wish i could go lower but im already losing $100 on these. just wanna get rid of em ... bums me out just having them not being able to wear them.
Why did Rick have to create Tech Runners? They're so great-looking and I dream of owning a pair.
DAMN YOU, TRICKSTER!
Construction quality is identical, they're both made by Olmar & Mirta
DRKSHDW uses cottons and synthetics over leathers etc etc.
Not in alot of peoples experience, I went TTS my UK size (like the OP says) and they fit perfectly
These are real right?
It will fit slightly loose, and he will have to use the drawstrings to hold them.
30" is kind of the middle ground between XS and S, both will work, but I prefer going down to XS as the elastic will stretch a little over time etc etc
those would be so nice without the shell toe i absolutely love that shark tooth sole which is why i might cop some ann d lows when s/s sale hits
lol i was gonna buy two pairs when they hit sale but i told myself not to be a greedy fuck, anyways i ended up selling my all black pairs. Theyre very comfy and snug, kinda like roshes.
tees then pants then outerwear then shoes or tees then outerwear then pants then shoes. idk
My Geos are half size down from my CPs (7.5 and 8 respectively). I can also pretty comfortably fit an 8 without noticing much difference. I'm pretty sure dunk sizing is equivalent but I couldn't confirm 100.
Don't pay more than like 350 for prisoners. You can find them for 300 new from retailers if you're patient. And yes, there is a mainline wool cuffed jogger now though the pattern isn't quite the same, particularly in the wasteband.
no way. you have to have an 11-1/2 foot size at least. I wear 11 and and ignored the "go down half size" advice and paid for it. Tried a firend's10.5s and they fit like a glove
sorry bud just sold em...now time for me to search for 10.5 in all white
>impliying i was not talking about thinking of a beauty tricky girl as a cheap porn actress
You know tricky ricky was often in sex clubs
but why is warosu not working I wanted to share is cumshot pic :)
anybody know if the half size down is also true with this model or runner? dont want to buy too big and no retailer near me sells ricks
There are some sites that are cheaper than others. Namely seven helsinki and Hervia. I recommend coming here, usually people post coupon codes and deals. Otherwise, sign up for newsletters from boutiques.
no from helsinki but another finn here
love it as well
especially cause finland just doesn't have that many boutiques with designers in the first place all the support feels great
maybe in 10 years we will have respectable amount of places to shop designers
I'm not sure how they have access to the buys they do. I know that Seven is a subsidiary, usually a store that small wouldn't get access to a mainline buy list that easily, and still sell for as cheap as they do. It's pretty great. Inspiring, honestly, it's something I want to do but I just don't have the capital for it yet.
I feel like its much easier to buy a bunch of Rick and look cohesive (no matter the color, dark dust, black, white, etc.) than, say, if you went and picked up a bunch of Saint Laurent or MMM?
Lets narrow it down to what everyone who wears SLP chooses
>Wyatts in black leather, tan suede, walnut suede
>black denim, lightwash denim
>black slp moto leather, grey overcoat, tan duffle coat
Any combo of these looks fine.
If you dress in full SLP, all the proportion work is done for you pretty much.
With rick some stuff really doesnt go with other rick
Just bought my first Geobaskets and am over the moon
im not, im going to sell everything off and have one rack with a bunch of rick hanging from it and proudly display it next to my Rick table and Rick chair
CAN SOMEONE HELP ME ID THESE EXACT MODELS ON BLADEE
I'll definitely keep coming here. I love seeing all the fits, whether dope or cringe, the Ricky tidbits, and I can't wait to post my own fits and get lovingly critiqued.
qwanza high all whites :^)
This is why I'm thinking of switching to the SLP. It's pretty easy to dress in. No fucking with silhouettes. I have the proportions to pull it off, I'm skinny and tall.
Dressing in SLP:
> motor jacket
never wore the skinny tapered, pic of them attached. Keep in mind im a 36 waist
love em tho, way better than my black true skinnys
Tbqh senpai, wearing rick,julius,etc. Stresses me the fuck out. I always expect myself to look good, always trying to wear the best outfits I can come up with. If I can't come up with a good outfit, I feel like a cuck.
You're bringing up a great issue with rick in that a lot of what we see is extremely curated. You never see what a Rick fan is wearing day in day out, you just see pics of them wearing their ultra-layered. Rick is amazing in that he wears the least glamorous versions of his stuff.
yes, its the armpits, its extremely clear that you're just wearing a shirt thats too big for you
like those knits you see at secondhand shirts that have been worn way too much and are all stretched out, yknow?
good looks tho :)
I don't take pictures and its 1am and I'm in jammies at the moment lad.
Some days I lazy it with one size stuff, some days I go ricksuit core with a blazer and socks and some days I go fullblown runway with my dickhole
It is stretched to fuck i'll admit hah so its M verging on L
But the quality of the cashmere is pretty garbage, super thin and stretchy. And the first time I wore it it started pilling. Really wouldn't recommend.
But its my only 'Dress up' turtleneck
One of the comfiest things I've ever owned.
Massive pain in the ass though, it hasnt got any pocket slits to get access to pods or whatever underneath so you can't use your pod pockets unless you wanna do some acrobatics to get into them.
it's more creamy/dark in person desu
Yeah I'm not saying they're not lovely jumpers, they're luxe to the feel, I just dont get on with milk knits or outerwear.
I have a milk OS tank and thats about as far as I would go.
So what is /rog/'s opinion on the vicious linen/poly/silk blends? I was thinking of picking up a blazer in the fabric.
Uniqlo turtlenecks mesh surprisingly well with Rick fits - but I do have a lot of trouble with it pulling up (as it is in pic related)
They were out of cashmere in my size so I got merino, still pretty nice.
5'8", 135, size 8 feet.
Leggings/pods/ramones always looks massive to me. Prisoners are my next cop I think.
when did he say that? i saw a video of one of his collections from like 2000ish i want to say, and it was so tame compared to what he's known for today. i don't remember anything in it not being wearable. maybe he thought that in the past. but i agree not everything is wearable nowadays (sorry rick the dickholes are a deal breaker).
aint got the pic anymore, my HDD went pop.
Just picked up pic related for 150
Ik he flipped it but 150 isnt too bad for a wool turtleneck. From the mountain collection! Hopefully better than the sphinx ones i have.
asked this in the last thread but i don't think i got an answer (or maybe someone did between when i last checked and when it died)
are the thigh darts on drkshdw jeans supposed to be the same length? i had a pair of detroits a while ago and one of the darts hit my knee and the other one ended a good 2 inches above the knee. i see some pictures where they're clearly uneven and others where they look like they're the same length. is it something that older ones had but not current ones? (i don't know what season mine were from but they had the older style olmar + mirta tag that wasn't as long and they didn't have the "DS" tag and the tag with the cut on the pocket bag like current ones) does it just differ with the model?
i was thinking of getting another pair of rick jeans but the uneven darts on mine drove me insane, i know most people won't even notice but i'm legitimately autistic about things like that, especially when it comes to pants. once i had a pair of jeans that i got tapered and the tailor made one leg just ever so slightly tighter, like less than a quarter inch difference in width and it wasn't visible but just the feeling of one leg being tighter killed it for me.
I can't imagine the darts are supposed to be different lengths. Obviously human anatomy is such that peoples' right and left legs are about the same length, so there's no benefit in fit or feel to making the darts different lengths. You must have gotten an irregular pair of jeans.
Wholly unrelated (but I'm asking here because I like you guys) but did BBS ever make a drawstring bag? I've scoured Google but it's turned up nothing.
Asking because I'm currently looking for a small tote bag and am a sucker for designer shit.
Does someone have the fit picture of these pants with ramones
Please don't do this you can get them for free.
Typically the Large dust bag comes with outerwear and the smaller dust bag comes with footwear if you buy retail I believe. A lot of retailers ditch the bag and just send you the product which is annoying sometimes.
As far as I noticed, shirts do not get you a dust bag . Pants etc do but I guess it depends on where you're buying them from. Pretty sure most retailers have bags so you could just ask. Got 2 bags for free at a Rick store. Just ask.
thats a dust bag, I got one with a tee not even from BBS but stocked at the same store. The one I have is some nylon fabric and the eyelets are only breaking off and its never been used, literally been sitting on a hook since i got it
Not completely related
But I shipped out a jacket last Monday and the guy is claiming it's still not there. The real shit is when I shipped it, USPS never gave me a tracking number, so I have no way to confirm if it is actually there or not. For all I know he has it and is just trying to get his money back. I'm going to have to file a PayPal claim soon because he still "doesn't have it". Is there anyway I can not get completely fucked in this situation or am I going to have to bite the bullet and be down $400?
>I'm going to have to file a PayPal claim soon because he still "doesn't have it"
Are you fucking serious mate? Pray to god he doesn't open a case because you fucked up not getting tracking for a paypal payment. Also how are you expecting a $400 loss if he isn't threatening to open a case yet?
I paid with cash because I was broke af at the time, the guy forgot to give me one and then said he couldn't get it once I asked because the transaction was ocmpleted...
In the end it's still my fault, I just really fucking hope this guy is a decent human being.
Nah, mostly I just hate that kind of explode but the explode plus the patterned tunic is just off putting. Probably from the clashing lines that are made. I would say either drop one or the other, preferably the tunic
Personal prefer it without the coat but it's cold as fuck so what you gonna do
I rate u senpai, the only guy who posts fit pics here who has the balls to go with more outlandish-er pieces
kinda fed up with entry level geos and jeans/pods and ramones fit pics, boring as fuck.
Daily reminder that all fits look better in motion
Camera phones are good but no way near good enough to highlight the decent bits of fits, stuff like blistered lamb shit, in real life its incredible vs your Nokia selfie of it.
Here's a good example of LGE. My creepers are unlined, which probably only confirms that it's some kind of cow/calf.
I'm assuming LGE and LPO are both Calf, I haven't seen creepers in anything apart from Horse, Goat and Calf (off the top of my head) and I think you'll know if you bought one of those leathers.
Its probably a small alteration like a different tanning process or treatment.
I know what you're saying about the coat/tunic interaction I guess.
Was kind of a necessity thing more than anything, I prefer wearing it without anything on top (>>10943324) and I don't have any outerwear that works well with it.
Looks better when its zipped up though.
Definitely recommend them they're awesome, though this one is from like 06 or 07 i believe
How will rick live when michele dies(which is soon i guess)?
Yeah there cargo's.
(if you want some inspo)
