If you had an unlimited budget and had to wear one designer for the rest of your life what would it be?
probably Engineered Garments or White Mountaineering
oh no I'm not saying that, I remember when I went to the Yohji store in London there was an older guy decked out in Yohji and he looked fly.
It's just a personal thing, I'd rather wear Burberry.
My unlimited budget fetching custom commission work? Aitor Throup, probably.
Off the rack? Jun Takahashi, easily. I could even just do Earmuff Maniac (F/W '09) if it didn't get too hot. Not sure what I'd add as an only S/S - probably Neoboy ('09) or Underman ('11).
Why did you steal my answer anon? Seriously though if I had literal endless funds I would have Aitor design me pieces for the strangest stuff, some of the clothing he does now is designed for the strangest situations.
>pic related is a jacket that is specially made for Mongolian horse riders
Otherwise yeah I would probably go with Jun, constantly is changing his style up but never letting go quality or aesthetic. Also are we allowed to hypothetically access every season of said designer or just what we can buy?
>tfw no no pleasures cloak
What the fuck are these faggots wearing? Is this what this bored considers fashionable?
Are you the guy who dropped serious knowledge on that thread about designers and shows pretty sure it was about Undercover, if it was, that was really impressive your knowledge of designers is what I aspire to have. If not I think you two would get along well. Thanks anyways tho :)
Yeah? That's rich, coming from somebody who's devoted their entire time - and piles of mommy and daddy's money - towards assembling and wearing a wardrobe of Helmut Lang and Raf because >muh strong, masculine image without even realising the queer/bondage influences, who unwittingly let himself be dressed in a queer/bondage uniform? Who had to have this explicitly pointed out to him rather than realising himself, no less. As if looking like a boiled fucking lobster and being utterly dependent on mom and dad wasn't bad enough for your vaunted >ultramasculine image
Someone who knows nothing about either designer or fashion that they didn't learn about and now regurgitate verbatim from smarter, more articulate and better people.
When people ask you about HL? timber's word, bastardized. About Raf?
>u-uh, I like how he used to make muh edgy youth clothing and now he's refined himself to produce regular clothes for the modern, fashion forward manly man
That's it, more shitposting. As if we don't have enough of it. You have no defence. You contribute nothing of value to this board or community, and detract from every 'discussion' in which you 'take part'. You've contributed massively to driving off some of the only people who actually had any knowledge at all about this subject, I don't know whether it's in some attempt to impress the new fuccbois who inevitably roll in with your vomitous posting to try and alleviate the crushing loneliness and feelings of being unwanted you get from your childhood or what. What's more, your shitposting isn't even funny, like sieg's, or educative like Bandit's. It's just terrible. A reflection of your life if ever there was one, I suppose.
No. This is going to stop.
One day, you're going to get the permaban you deserve, even if - so help me - I have to hold Moot at fucking knifepoint to do so.
Until then, tl;dr:
Fuck you. Sage goes in every field.
Probably J.Crew or something. They put out a bunch of shit, so I wouldn't feel limited although my style would certainly be the same aesthetic type over and over. Don't get me wrong I love the more expensive brands, (muh lad musician) but I'd run out of things to cop pretty fast imo.
pigfuck tryin so hard for damage control fucking lol
just get over it. realize that no one likes you and anyone who does is just as worthless as you are
or you know, keep trying to cultivate this bullshit internet persona that everyone can see through
So this is what autism is like. Who in their right mind would pick Jcrew if they have infinite funds. Your saying you want to look like every other guy out there I mean if you like that look at least go with something a little more interesting like Prorsum.
there he goes again. you know I used to think you at least had some imagination.
yeah it kind of annoys me to be called a Jew cuz ive been hearing it all my life but what annoys me more is the attitude of casual racism and spreading fucking retard ideas of what is right and what is logical
its really sad and it makes me wonder how a person could dig himself so deep
all u SJWs out there would be a lot better off taking a good ole listen to pigfuck
might benefit u seein something other than ur social activism cis shaming pro transfat tumblr
this thread =
Don't think he made more than one of those. So that should give you a little insight to its rarity. He makes a few pieces more than once but since his process for making pieces is so ridiculous and time consuming there is no way he can make more than like 10 of each one. You most likely won't be able to find a jacket like that from him for less than $7000. Also you will have to contact him/his workers directly. If you have the money for it, I honestly don't think you could buy a better piece of clothing for that amount. Aitor Throup is seriously on another level when it comes to process, cutting, material basically everything.
I think I'm (>>8605681, no other posts ITT) the guy you're talking about from the other thread. This one?
Honestly, I'm definitely not an expert; there's people who know far, far more about this stuff than I do. I'm just a natural fanboy with an aptitude for the kind of research conducive to thinking and writing about stuff.
This/that isn't the only time people have asked me "how the fuck do you know so much" on here, though, so at some point I'm going to make a research/resources thread. Hopefully/probably soon - things are just kind of a mess with me right now and I said elsewhere I'd scan and dump some stuff out of the Arcades Project, which seems like a good way to start the thread off. And for that I need to get to a library.
And it's possible to buy the Unknown Pleasures Cloak, sometimes. There was one for some not-as-insane-as-you'd-think 4-figure price BIN on eBay for a longass time.
Personally, I'd take the other cloaks from the collection any day - the Saville design just doesn't work on the cloak, for me. And my most-desired piece from the collection is probably actually the skirt in pic related.
Anyone know a place with these pictures over 600x900?
And I think the three of us probably get along well on this board all the time. I always like seeing your posts, Birthday.
Yep that's the one. Sorry gonna need out for a second. The way he cuts his clothing like I said before I specially designed for specific tasks. Of course the rising jacket like I said before but he also designed an entire line for a marching band. His vision of the human anatomy is mainly what causes this. Aitor takes everything into account muscle mass the way a specific limb will be moving in said scenario. Many others have tried to replicate this with varying degrees of success but Aitor still wears the crown for this. If you haven't seen his sketches either I would highly recommend it. They give a really good view into his mind and the way he sees the body and all his prototypes. Lastly one of his lesser known works was his collaboration with Umbro wear he designed sportswear and running clothing. It was much more mild and accessible compared to his other work but with the same amazing cuts and material. Hopefully he keeps making clothing because it is a dream of mine to one day own a piece of his.
He's CD of G STAR RAW as of a few months ago.
I actually haven't figured out if he was involved with their S/S releases and it just got announced after the fact or if he's starting in the fall.
I haven't looked into it much at all because I haven't fucked with G STAR at all before this and I don't know enough about them yet to really get a handhold, but I'm hoping he's well at home there.
A mass market brand is definitely the right place for him, versus tiny little art runs, with his emphasis on product design, which the press releases really emphasized as being something present at G STAR, but then they're press releases.
Dumparoni of your favorite qt psychopath
>tfw no qt closeted bf
This is who calls you a faggot.
>m-muh Helmut Lang is the most masculine designer
>why do you g-guys think I'm gay
Just kidding I could never stay mad at him too cute
I guarantee you dude has spent 5x the time obsessing over poet that big P has spent even thinking about him.
Dude is probably an ant under P's field generals, not to mention clearly disturbed and maladjusted
I wouldn't doubt that those ponchos pop up every now and then but if you want anything under $1000 your out of luck. Not many designers or brands make then most likely because as cool as the look they are quite hard to pull off. If you live in Quebec( I think) Arc'teryx had a project wear they designed and gave out ponchos specially made for homeless people so you could maybe rob a homeless person. Craig Green also had one in his most recent season.
Best of luck to you
Probably either Rick, Jun, or Damir Doma.
Rick because he's my favorite, plus you get to rock drkshdw stuff too. I'd cop all the geos, Ramones, and dunks in ze world.
Jun because I've been infatuated with Undercover lately, and you get UCxGuy running gear, and John Undercover.
Damir Doma because I love his mainline designs, and he had the GOAT show (09AW). I think he consistently kills it, especially his upcoming AW and SS stuff. Also, Silent basics are probably the best basics IMO
Damir lately has really let me down and he is one of my favorite designers. For a couple seasons now it's just been rehashed pieces in different patterns and color. Old Damir is GOAT though, ss15 actually looks pretty promising. Fingers crossed
Oh and Gyakusou is just a collaboration between Undercover and Nike. Not its own separate brand.
Yeah I agree his last two years have been weak, but this years was incredible IMO. I still have a few pieces I would def cop from last years AW. However, while his main line was weak, Silent has stayed incredible, especially for what it is supposed to be.
Yeah I know it's just a collab but if we go by only buying from designers, I would assume anything Undercover related can be worn if I choose Jun? Or are we going by only the designers' main brands?
Ahh I see what you mean. And yeah Silent is amazing I know people shit on it because they see it as selling out but almost every other big name out there has diffusion lines Rick,Undercover,Yohji, like you said Silent has consistently put out fantastic pieces. Hopefully Damir will continue to improve because compared to many others he is still a new fairly designer,and has much of his career ahead of him. If the most recent shows are any proof I think he is still improving and branching out, I will definitely miss his nomadic style he used to have though.
When I find out I'll let you know.
Birthday you are the least knowledgeable and most active poster on this board, which is just a fucking excellent combination for the rest of us. Your opinions in this threaded are not needed. You don't know anything about fashion, and thinking regurgitating people's opinion on Damir Doma gives you any sort of credibility when you've been interested in fashion for two weeks is fucking laughable.
>being this retarded
first of all, no SLP is far from basic and no, the only garments ive seen with a shitton of zippers is the leather jacket and the bikers pants
get your shit straight, some pic to get you informed, go watch a runway before you talk shit about a brand
Nigga, I love Hedi but you posted one of the shittiest fits from him that I've ever seen. Shoulda posted this.
SLP is such shit tier.
"I absolutely fetishize this singular rocker look and endlessly recreate it. It's not an interesting aesthetic that I have created or anything like that. I'm seriously just recreating the same rocker cosplay year after year and people buy this shit up"
Young self- APC, Acne Studios or Maison Kitsune'
Old Self- Burberry Prorsum 100%

Disagree, you don't have to take huge risks in fashion to look or be fashionable. I am not talking about MFA shit tier fashion, I am talking simplicity which I believe APC and Acne do extremely well. No way, shape or form am I saying tshirt and jeans with wolverine 1ks is the way to go. Dat is pleb shit
birthday fucking stop
jesus christ trunks has been posting the exact same way since forever
Go back to regular shitposting and samefagging as anon while you jack off inside your new meme shoes
That's probably the only good look from that show. I liked a lot of the pieces but the way they were put together I just couldn't get behind. I know Raf loves the boyish/youth look but this was just to childlike. The next couple seasons after that I really enjoyed though
So much this.
Or White Mountaineering. Or Veilance.
Aw yes. They made new pieces like in their previous BLK line, but I think the older ones were much sleeker. I just like WM as a whole, the patterns and vests are nice.
