>Show a girl Rick Owens garments
>She says "ew"
Not gonna lie, I almost cried.
So when I walk around in the real world with Rick people are thinking "EW" while looking at me?
I don't mind if people aren't IMPRESSED as such, but I don't want them to be physically repulsed by my presence.
yea, which is why i don't like rick, because my initial reaction to seeing goof was ew, and while it is slowly growing on me, I'm going to keep in the back of my mind how weird it is to everybody in real life.
Something must be wrong with you, all I know is when I cop Rick the hottest women swoon.
his face makes me think of pic related ever since his thread.
>wear lanvin paris shirt from recent collection with the iron maiden-esque printed letters that say 'lanvin'
>"whose that band anon, never heard of lanvin paris" constantly
honestly I dont even care. I wear the clothes I wear because I love running around in them and it makes me happy the whole time I wear them. Especially stuff like Rick & Ann. Sometimes I'll just go stand in my closet and stare at them.
story about how tricky ricky stole my shoes and stole my gf
Who's that guy?
Yes, there's something that feels good about owning something worth a lot of money. I like some Timex watches but I'm hesitant to cop because they don't have the "money" factor.
I too stare at my clothing.
I actually have a long clothing-store style rack in my bedroom with all my expensive stuff lined up in order of garment type and color. Sometimes I lay in bed just staring at them.
I would actually prefer to change /fa/ to Margiela and stuff like that. If you can afford MMM you can easily afford the extra $100 to $200 for Rick. My favorite style is wearable basic items with twists and re-invented basics.
Actually who am I kidding I fucking love Rick, I love him being posted on /fa/ and I love feeling like I have my own "style" rather than copying meme shit.
That's actually Milla Jovovich
>you will never make love to her 12 year old body
does anyone have the facebook screencap of a kid that looks like pic related and in the comments hes saying how he got an xbox with call of duty and someone replies and says 'woah thats cool'
yeah same for me. I still dont like all of rick's stuff that much, but some stuff i used to think was really weird looking doesn't look weird to me at all anymore and I'm afraid I'm losing my grasp on normal people reality or something.
You are... The thing is, when thousands of people tell you every single day (people who are part of your "tribe" as it were) that something is good, you will start to think it's good even when it's not.
>Calling others newfags and plebs
You guys do know that Rick started out as a joke on /fa/? People would post his fits and be like "just copped this, so cool" just like they do with yesstyle now. Then a bunch of people who hadn't been around long enough didn't realise it was sarcastic and thought it'd be effay to buy it. Then they started making actual, unironic threads and the even newer newfags got dragged in and now there are a lot of Rick wearing fuccbois here just cos they let /fa/ dress them
"gothninja" has been a part of the board since its inception, though in the early days it was mostly brands like julius, bbs, obscur, dbss, etc. it was mostly treated as an oddity because no one knew anything outside of aa and topman, and discussion fell dramatically after 2010
the proliferation of rick in /fa/ culture was mostly due to the push of avant trips like user and twerk in late 2012 and really thats all there is to it
pic related, one of the first pics i saved from 2008
its not a joke and i didnt imply either of those things, but rick certainly wasnt the focal point of the discussions back then
also 2009 was indisputably the year of the skytop; geobaskets didnt come into the picture until years later
it was discussed since a bit after the first year and when b rekt fa at the rl meetup. /fa/cist was posting pics of him n his bf in it a long time back. Then that song raf simons rick owens usually what im dressed in came out and everyone started dickriding. At first the dropcrotch pants in particular were kind of a joke, but then people started posting actual fits and inspo. then twerk and plebser came. basedfaggot changed his name to trunks and ordered those trapezium pants and shitted up the board. Initially user just parroted everything anyone else said, but he finally started actually doing halfway decent fits... still parroting everything twerk and facist and I said... somewhere in that time poet came as a emailfag and posted stupid 'profound statements' that meant nothing then he made a trip or name and lead the autists forth to lunarcore, which most of fa just laughed at except the newfriends who didnt know better, then I left and I dont know since then, but there are a ton of shitty trips now... like more shitty trips than ever before.
there was a time where fa was predominantly menswear like mfa is now though. like way back. and also hedi dickriding dem diorhomme jawnz
flyover state posters i swear
rick garms are reasonably common
hes been had cult status for over a decade
but really only two types of people can wear rick and those are hyperglam or literally villain-ugly
its one of those things where u just have to born for it and besides, the whole point of it is to frighten and intimidate
DH MIJs are still fucking amazing jeans for the fashion forward. Better fit than SLP IMO, and the big leather SLP patch at the back doesn't help them fit snug. You could take the patch off, but really, does anybody here actually deface luxury designerwear?
mostly right except for everything about user. he wasnt very confrontational or even all that interesting personality wise, but he dropped hella knowledge and tbh thats what made him a good trip. nigga knew his shit and had been in the garm making game years before going on /fa/; he and twerk had good rapport cause they just happened to both be rickfriends before coming to /fa/
>implying turnleft was here before the tripfags I described, let alone the first year of /fa/
LOL. Leisuresuitlamy? Who the fuck are you?
user always used to do that shit, especially when he was just starting off in design school. he came around towards the end. Poet... poet was just obnoxious.
'gothninja' will be it for a long time because its pretty much just a synonym for dark artisinal clothes, which are the modern clothes of now. there have always been micro trends, and menswear still plays a decent part here, but there arent any vastly different clothes that have come out except stuff like iris van herpen's work which is still mostly experimental.
lelders? dat u?
twerk's mom worked in the industry...I think as a costumer and taught him.. He had a lot of experience and he had been on sz for quite a while. Most of those 'smart conversations' between him and user were just him teaching user's dumb ass.
No. he mentioned he was pattern drafting around this summer back when I left. whether he produced shitty clothes or great clothes or dressed like shit or dressed great wasnt my statement, though. He knew more about clothing design and deconstruction than user at the time.
xD nice argument faglord. Twerk didnt win best dressed but he was one of the more knowledgable trips. Definitely more than user.
>he's been on /fa/ for 6 years
>ask bf what he likes me in
"anything but your Helmut Lang skirt"
>show him Helmut Lang skirt
"No, not that one, the black one"
>"y-you mean my Rick Owens skirt."
"Yeah it's horrible. don't wear that."
>he's newfag cancer who pretends to know about things before his time and wants to feel important even though he's not so he has to tripfag
filtering on the double.
filtering on le doublé
carry on : )
How do you filter trips? I've never needed to before but the ones on /fa/ are awful sometimes and I just don't want to have to watch them shitposting when I wanna talk about fashion
Twerk had way more experience and lived in la. yea, i'm sure user posted on sufu because they r like 10x more knowledgable eben tho sz users actually created ways to care for certain leathers and had people in almost all areas of the industry xD
i'd berry my dick in that if you know what im sayan
Okay men of effay, gonna say a few things. I only recently started lurking hard on fa (I used to come for the tumblr threads and nothing else), so I think I count as a normal girl. All the fits in the inspo threads look really dumb to me. Rick looks absolutely stupid-- like a middle school goth getting swallowed by his dad's Matrix Halloween costume. No one cares if your jeans are Acne or not, because I'm not fuckin checking your tags. These Raf dip dye sweaters look like a diy that was all over Pinterest like two years ago, so all I wonder is "why did he take his sister's clothes"? And most of the stuff you wear- these black pants, black jacket, black shoes combos- look boring as fuck and wouldn't make me look at you twice. So if you're trying to dress fa for girls, you're doing it completely wrong. If you're trying to dress fa for yourself and other people on this board that love trying to look super fa too, then power to you. But you look dumb to outsiders.
You wouldn't know what's /fa/ even if it bite you in the ass.
>implying /fa/ wants normal gfs
>implying what you call "black" looks boring on inspo
So some tumbrl rainbow "so randum" chick is going to say to me that Yohji looks boring or dumb?
>implying you fuckin plebs wouldn't take any girl you could get
>You wouldn't know what's /fa/ even if it bite you in the ass.
That's kind of the point, dumbass. You think every girl walking the street keeps up with fashion? News flash. They don't. And last I checked, whether or not something looks boring is subjective. Wanna hear a secret? Just because it has a fancy name and big price tag, doesn't mean people are going to like or respect it. My "so randum" tumblr is an architecture blog.... And I'm telling you that a normal chick off the street doesn't just think Tohji looks boring and dumb.
I think it looks absolutely retarded.
well, ost of us respect garment design as an art and not just for getting chicks, so you can rest assured that i dont give two fucks if some ugg slut thinks that i look retarded in my obscure designer rags.
Also, gentle reminder. You're dressing /fa/ for yourself and the rest of the people on this board. I said that if that's what you want and why you do it, then go for it. I ain't judgin. But if you're honestly thinking that dressing like this is going to help you get a girlfriend, you're just wasting your money.
You're gonna be a little surprised to hear that your super cool hidey hole is actually quite famous. Greentexts show up on Facebook and on sites like Buzzfeed pretty often. So getting to 4chan is nothing special.
I'm gonna explain how it goes down for you.
"Hahaha these stories are so weird and funny! Let me go check this /b/ board on 4chan"
"Oh my god it's just a bunch of porn of furry women with dicks that's disgusting"
"Oh I see I should go to a board that's not NSWF"
"Ah fashion that one is probably nice"
"What the fuck are these idiot wearing lol"
It's all about certain pieces.. The people that wear 100% rick outfits head to tow look like fools to me or even 100% outrageous designer outfits look ridiculous a lot of the time. but anyone who isn't trying too hard can wear 1 of his pieces with other stuff and look 'normal' without looking like a comic book character. You don't have to wear top to bottom outlandish shit to make believe you are 3l1t3 f4sh1oN1st4
>wear rick ann horikawa etc when i'm getting groceries or fucking off
>lanvin and loro for fancy dinners and events
its not that hard.
I live in fucking texas and people still mire rick. Even when I dress full rick. girls shitting on designer clothing have just never seen it irl done well.
I can't speak for all girls, but for me and a lot of girls I know, we've always thought the "fashionable" and attractive guys were the ones wearing stuff that looks like it's F21 mens or H&M. Compared to normal guys who are just in basketball shorts and stuff, this looks well put together and is still very approachable. It's also the kind of clothes we see in media-- guys in tv shows, movies, articles, etc. Which is why I'm saying you don't have to spend a lot of money to look fashionable to a girl, because these looks are comparatively cheap. Even just jeans + t shirt + cardigan is nice.
bruh i live in texas too. you must be in austin or something because if you're in full rick anywhere else you're going to look retarded. Especially since it's hot as fuck right now. No one is admiring your fit. They're watching to make sure you don't pass out from heat stroke.
basics are good, but c'mon, -f21? To be fair 80% of girls I know would have me wearing chinos and a f*ckin' bow tie or some 'kewt' chucks, skinnies and a blazer fit that would make me want to end it all immediately. the lesson is - rather /fit/ than /fa/ to get girls, and don't let them dress you unless they're pro
get outta here you lil shit
you don't settle for true love it just happens
lamy is a grail wife ;_;
helps out w/ furniture line
When I go to clubs girls like my fancy designerwear and approach me to comment. I get nonstop comments on my paint splatter MMMs... Both good and bad... From men AND women. The amount of people I've met thanks to them...
Nobody in Forever21 would stand out or be noticed.
OH also the ACNE Romantic top is "approach"bait too... If you want to get approached that is.
Let's also remember most of the guys on here aren't that attractive. If you're a hottie with a body then yeah, you'll get approached no matter what. But if you're just an average looking guy in head to toe rick, you're not gonna get any more attention than you would in cargo shorts and a marvel tshirt. Why? Because you're still dressing like an outsider. If you want to dress for girls, watch some shows targeted at women and see how those men are styled.
im a grill, and agree with this. it's hilarious to see all the effay fags here getting all butthurt mad because girls don't see the "fashion" in their hideous goofnigger fits and maymaybaskets.
if you dress for yourself, that is fine. but dont be posting your shitty "no gf" feels or "pls be in lundun" memes, because you refuse to admit most chicks think you dress like shit.
the equivalent would be like a girl dressing like tumblr-core soft grunge/goth retard, with pentagrams, black lipstick and unshaven armpits, and wondering why she's single and has no friends lol.
this post makes me think about how many trips we've lost just in the past year
all these guys were around when I first came here, now you see /fa/scist once in a while and that's pretty much it. Trunks is gone, poet is gone, ain't seen user in a while, twerk neither... fuck, man. what happened?
makes me think there's no reason that I'm still around. younger kids keep coming in and I feel like a relic now.
What happened to Denim Dan? Where did he go? I actually liked him
yes, sir. girls love you. that's why you're single and on 4chinz
nigga, give it a rest. you're embarassing your mom.
most guys on internet- fedoras and elliot rodger-level "nice guys"
guys on fa- basic af "minimalist" shit and autistic tards that want to dress like their favorite animus
I'm not a virgin tho, I don't want a gf ever even a pretty one. I'm copping a dog. Girls approach and say things like "I like your jumper" they like my DRKSHDW. Also comments on shoes. Women do like Rick.
Time to deal with it.
i think if you reach a certain amount of knowledge (read slightly above superficial) /fa/ is useless. I feel at this point it doesnt offer me any new insights other than a bunch of fuccbois posting w2c, fake shoes and attempted essays on clothing that are so cringe inducing.
i think i'm going to leave soon. (inb4 see u tomorrow)
Yea I thought it was his sister too. A lot of couples in high school were like that though. Poor kids probably become a meme now huh. I was bored and haven't really played with photoshop in a while so I make them look good.
like >>8410423 said, it's because of how you are wearing. and it's not "avant garde" unapprochable shit. what i'm really talking about is that it is retarded to think that women will flock to you, just because you're full goof mode, or soly because you are wearing rick. like it or not, most women dont give a flying fuck about fashion, because most people don't give a flying fuck abour fashion.
the only time you'll ever hear a "ooh i love your rick" from a chick is if she's hardcore into fashion herself. most don't even know who the fuck rick is.
don't think copping expensive designer shit will automatically make you a chick magnet. if you're well dressed and good looking, you'll get girls regardless if you're wearing designer or cheap shit mall-tier
i also laugh my ass off at the people here that complain about being single, yet go around dressing like tacky cartoons. do you even social norms 101?
Trash like you that say fag and retard understand nothing about culture. There are women out there, women that are a pedigree well above yours that have taste. They actually understand and enjoy fashion and they run with groups of men that also share that. A poor inbred worm like yourself probably has a hard time realizing that.
Lol. Okay, so you're placing your bets on your ability to get one of these women to actually look your way? I'm going to let you in on a secret... They won't. Your dream girl that loves fashion and hangs with guys that also love fashion? She's going to be fucking one of them because they're hotter, richer, smarter, and cooler than you. Let me remind you that while your dream girl may exist somewhere in the world, she's got far better things (and men) to do than some lame kid that sits on 4chan trying to convince anonymous women that he's actually worth something, and they're just not good enough to see it.
what /fa/ thinks happens when you go out in geos:
>"omg those are clown shoes!"
>"you have autism!"
>"lel nice converse!"
what actually happens:
>"wow those shoes look really crazy I like them a lot"
>"those shoes are cool I don't think i've seen anything like them before"
>"yo nigga those kicks are fresh my nigga"
>"I can tell you're one of those people that's super cool and hip because you're in Rick Owens"
sorry fuccbois but bitches love the rick
I have that "dream girl" I have had her for many years, and before that I had many more women. I like that to you having money, nice clothes, taste, skill and a real life are unobtainable. I assume college and a job that has a wage cap of more then 10 dollars a hour must be something that only people on T.V. have.
>goes on about "culture" when people don't "understand" why you bought some overpriced designer shit
>doesn't realize copping designer is a personal choice, and not everyone will like it
>doesn't realize just because it's designer means it looks good or high quality
>rants like edgy 12 year old when an actual woman tells him it looks like crap
>b-but mah rick owenz, you inbred :(
ho-ley fuck man. you're riding owens' dick so hard right now. my only question is, is it painful when you go to take a shit?
I'm also a George Foreman Grill. TBH, I give zero fucks about what guys wear unless they are wearing:
1. A fitted suit (Only positive thing I notice/admire/fawn over.)
3. Ghetto, gang attire
4. Literal shit
5. PJs outside
Everything else guys wear doesn't matter to me. Just wear what you want. Goofnigga or tumblrcore or normcore. Just be a cool human-being. Get qts.
>only people on tv have money and nice clothes and a real life
why would you come on this board then? The female inspo threads are shit and if you enjoy anonymous men on the Internet drooling over your waywts then you're probably a loser irl tbh
