I am very hyped over Faun, I think everything is pretty great.
But has anyone gotten any of the bamboo shirts? I notice on darklands they seem cheaper than everything else while on luisaviaroma they are an average ~300. They appear less sheer, is that true? Do the double layer bamboo ones twist in the same way?
ricky has done it again
Bamboo is just a particular kind of viscose. The viscose/silk tends to be a little pilly, but it's stable, and I would suspect the same of the bamboo. Just a cheaper fabrication to penetrate a broader audience and maybe steal back some sales from the second hand market or from copies like T by Wang.
What's the deal with RO sizing?
I'm a UK extra small, I've never seen the '34' being used on UK clothes but according to these I would be that size.
On antonioli UK XS is a 44 in Italian, and on the RO site that's a 46 in Italian (and it even says UK XS is a 36).
Who's sizing do I go by here? Rick's seems to add 2 on everything.
Speaking of sizing, are you really supposed to size down on RO outerwear? That for a more "normal" non-tight look or because they literally are just weird and too small? Would love an explanation of this, would like to get a worker jacket and I'm generally a small, and eying one in a medium.
from a womenswear perspective a lot of the stuff is strangely forgiving in terms of sizing, but there's a huge variety in fit oweing to some wildly different dart manipulations.
on the other hand when the sizing is off you are brutally punished, and the measurements can be kind of misleading.
size up on the outerwear unless you're a skinny guy. if you're unsure then order from somewhere with a good return policy or try on in person. sizing has been a bit fickle with a number of factory changes.
oops, meant to say size up, so if you want a 48 TTS get a 50
denim jackets? size up. they're very slim, though obviously with quite long arms.
jeans? not the most consistent. typically size down, but your best bet is obviously to just get the measurements.
2nd person, thanks!
Copping the shoes Rick's wearing here, contacted RO customer service and they said they're coming out sometime early this year in a male specific version (p sure it's spring/summer).
Think it'd be best to size down? I'm worried they'll be baggy at the legs.
I've seen him wear various ones, but the socks they make are pretty great.
Is the classic bomber always available? Not him but I'm looking for the most "simple" looking cotton one, Idk if it's Drkshdw or not or if it has a specific name.
The bomber is available in DRKSHDW in rotating fabrics (e.g. waxed poplin, lightweight nylon), but the now standard cotton/nylon version has almost always been available in mainline, but I don't always keep tabs on it.
>tfw missed the RO slip-ons and most of them are out of stock in leather
Hey /fa/, I just copped some brown ass ramones (pic related) and I already have a fit planned but I need advice on pants, I was thinking something khaki colored but I have no idea. Can you help me out?
you should be fine as long as you don't throw in a lot of conflicting color, make the shoes stand out in the fit
tucked linen pants would look good as would basic black jeans with matching brown/tan outerwear
Does /fa/ love /fa/un?
I see it as a perfect complement to vicious in the whole sphere of Rick's work (that idea of looking at the same universe from different perspectives) with vicious as the external projection of that dark rebellious aesthetic, which the music and the aggressiveness of the models perfectly emphasised and then faun seems to literally peel away at this external projection revealing this softer, more colourful, compassionate, innocent idea (literal in the sense that I'm drawing this idea from the tunics with peeled away segments that reveal lighter colour, reminiscent of flesh/organs for me when i first watched the show) that kind of perfectly ties in with the Benoit embroideries and this gentle, paternal, loving side of Rick.
I think as a show and looking at the pieces Faun far surpasses Vicious but probably because I love that part of Rick, and don't like seeing it reduced to what it was in Vicious, which to me was almost like a caricature of his work.
Except for one thing, I fucking hated the shoes for Faun and loved the shoes for Vicious
ur seriously putting effort into "discussing" some furfags shrek costumes
i think its time to turn off the pc and go play outside for a bit bud
I like every collection to varying degrees. Unlike other designers who throw it all out and start totally from scratch, you can't appreciate Rick without seeing the shows as a continuum of ideas that are reworked and developed with time and thought.
Thanks for providing that pic I wanted to include it too but chose Rick's rationale instead. Sometimes 4chan is frustrating when you can't link to multiple images. You're a cool guy trunks never change
I'm completely in love with Faun, but I still really like Vicious.
Vicious was playful, I seem to remember Rick saying in an interview that it was an interpretation to a sort of concert going style he was never into but appreciated from afar. The show itself is what really got me into Rick in the first place, and it is very silly. I really liked how WOAH HERE I GO minimal it was, but I guess I can see how you can get "caricature" from that.
But then, you'd totally catch me in that nylon onesie.
ugly gash shit, faux fur jackets and shit
was mostly denim, only partially designed by rick, turned into drkshdw (still mostly denim), drkshdw eventually became pretty much the same as mainline
LA label when rick lived out here, back when he was producing fakes
a couple of the guys here bought the stuff when it was cheap $45 denim jackets and $35 shirts
but it was really baggy and poorly made (even for rick)
i bought the grey long sleeve in L and it was still big on ME
someone told me it was alot like james perse....was NOTHING like james perse
thought that shit was going to be a good deal since over $100 savings ea item NOPE
i couldn't sell it....i had it for like $5 and $5 ship in conUS no bites
donated to goodwill
what is your opinion on james perse? i always pick up a few discount shirtx whenever im at the barneys outlet store. their sizing is fucked at times but the fabric seems nice for plain cotton
Get this shit out of my Rick thread
Maybe he meant to attach this.
> in a nordstrom outlet
What are those assumptions for? I'm the original poster btw, maybe you have some recommendations for less sought after and more easily available leather pieces? Would be greatly appreciated. The climate here is pretty warm and winter is like autumn in cold places, and I always wanted a rick outerwear piece.
it was such a moronic post
its like recommending a lamborghini to somebody about to buy their first car
just get a run of the mill drkshdw ma-1 from a s/s release
make sure u check the the fabric density first and watch ebay/grailed there's always some popping up
Make sure the undershirt is longer and has shorter sleeves/a lower neckline (you can cut rick shirts freely to ensure this cos of the raw hems), different textures help too I believe. I also don't go with too stark a colour contrast between each layer i.e. I'll go black silkviscose/unstable dust or grey silkviscose/unstable white, that's a personal preference though.
rick tanks/tees are perfect because of how lithe the material is, they're great length too
if you can't afford it, just size up on normal tees but be warned it's not going to look very good, nothing like the layering inspo pics posted all the time
cut it and wear a longer, preferably unstable cotton t-shirt underneath it
You don't need to layer and it often comes off as incredibly forced when the pieces aren't right for it. It also somewhat requires more constant attention throughout the day to make sure your undershirt is showing or your top shirt hasn't ridden up too much etc. Sometimes it's more effort than it's worth especially if you're so unsure with what you're doing. Just experiment a little with different colours and lengths.
I only do it to break up monotony in some fits where I'm wearing all black top, shorts/sweats/jeans, ramones but often having different textures in your outfit serves the same purpose, though not from afar.
Yeah this mentality is why some people, usually teenagers or kids in their early twenties, look retarded in rick and other designers. Because the purchases represent a sizeable portion of their wealth and they're too apprehensive to have the garments altered, and that's probably compounded by the fact some of their pre purchase rationalisation involves resale considerations. Always your clothes (or have them professionally altered) so they fit you. This is the first lesson to learn.
Being too scared to take a pair of fabric scissors to your precious cotton t-shirt is a lot more of a sissy act then wanting your clothes to fit you.
or maybe some people prefer the length. it's one of the special and defining characteristics of rick's basics, if you're just going to chop them down then i wonder why you're buying him at all.
I'm not saying to cut them to the point where they hang at your middrift, it's merely a matter of centimetres so they're not ending at the bottom of your thighs and you can layer longer shirts underneath. If you think that you buy Rick tees for the length please don't ever talk to me about fashion.
*I* buy Rick tees for the length. Quite a lot of them fit perfectly from the factory because I look like the models, but even the bizarrely long ones I love specifically for that elegant, robe like appearance.
So fuck off with this attitude you soggy git.
You can't generalise the double layer's draping/stacking effect to all of the mainline t-shirts when none of the others are constructed that way. So no, you're wrong. You can twist the shirt to create that effect temporarily with the other t-shirts but it will eventually unfurl and go out to its full length when you're getting around
hey morons ur supposed to fold and tuck
that creates ruching drape along the waist
xs-m cling like polyprop thermals
they stretch fast
cut them if u want
do not wear them long like a fucking dress or u will look like every other memeninja teenage piece of shit from www.4chan.org/fa/ who bought rick without a clue how to wear it
is it worth getting a woman's size to cut down on the clowny-ness of geos? and if so, should you size down for those too?
A lovely Rick thread, it feels good being the masterrace of /fa/
How are you all doing? Any recent cops?
stocked up on some Rick tees from the end of the year sales
They sold out in so fast you probably had to refresh like a motherfucker and even then had to process the order faster than every other Ramones hungry professional window shopping Rick fan out there
hnnnnng that's probably my favorite reposted pic in /fa/ history
I don't think they're that bad, pretty cool if anything. This model is much more accessible, looking forward to fits using these
>size up. even if it fits everywhere else the armholes are too high and restrict movement at tts. ie tts 38/48/m is really a 40/50/l
if u have to size up on rick u are not supposed to be wearing it in the first place
high armholes/narrow shoulders are the whole appeal
do you think rick goes tts on his outerwear
not everybody is a translucent unfuckable jellyfish
Bought some rick shorts, although USPS is fucking up and taking extra time to get them here. Probably about another week.
Also trying to see if I can get some sweatpants as well.
idk mane he's killing it here. most of his stuff I'm not a huge fan of.
mmm first good decision kanye ever made was putting that bitch into the tricky rick.
"A pregnant Kim Kardashian was seen arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles surrounded by her posse and paparazzi. The reality TV star was rocking a Rick Owens Fur Coat (mink: $39,875) with a pair of Celine sunglasses." 2013
>Kim K wearing ricky dick
well that's it boys, pack it in. I have nothing against Kim and her family, but the fact that she is wearing tricky rick just shows how "mainstream" he is about to get (if he isn't already)
well duh he's mainstream, I wasn't really arguring that
I mean he's in selfridges for god's sake
i was just making a point that even Kim K is wearing it now, that's how mainstream he has become
thank you for replying to my comment
it makes me feel so relevant to the discussion
>well duh he's mainstream, I wasn't really arguring that
>the fact that she is wearing tricky rick just shows how "mainstream" he is about to get
but really he has been ultra famous for ages and if your delayed knowledge of that makes you go 'oh jeez i aint interested no more' you are the worst kind of person
are u retarded? ricky was always popular among celebrities
also, here is a pic of brad pitt wearing guess who (seen a jude law in one also)
>how "mainstream" he is about to get

Why you gotta be so mean?
okay one of these references is a lie
but she does wear rick too
>so like i like to wear edgy designers with cat print skirts, because fuck tumblr LEWL
you're obviously a ccp conisour. how is it meant to be worn?
i'm sure if we asked ccp he'd ask someone to animate some schiele corpses to adorn.
yes, some celebrities have stylists, but at the bgeinning of the day when they're staring into their bottomless wardrobe they choose what to trawl
does brad not wear ccp correctly?

I copped a new rick leather on sale
Stooges in full grain calf.
okni selling a new one for less than a used one would have went for back in the day.
even though im sure trunks can find one NWT from fw09 CRUST for $250 shipped from japan or someshit
Always found it difficult to find a pair of geos in my size for cheap, would sizing down from a 12 to an 11 for a reasonably priced pair be too risky?
One of her girlfriends didn't bring it up over lattes, Kim K wears it because of Kanye, who is basically her self appointed personal stylist. I don't know if you know, but Kanye is very into fashion.
You seem pretty nice, but in this instance you do not know what you are talking about.
Are these worth the pricetag? How much would you pay for one?
You can tell. Pick them up in person and the different textiles have rough edges and sloppy stitching. The later model seems better, the original manta ray looks worse.
Saw the original as an on sale floor model from self ridges with creasing and it looked like complete shit. Not sure if it was the toe box design or the leather quality.
I never really how that looks. I'm not against dickflaps, but they have to have a lot of flap. The little cloth dip peekimg out just looks off to me.
Im more interested in the t -shirt stacking. How the unstable cotton and viscose shirts behave. Now also the bamboo. Someone before was saying tuck and roll, what does that mean?
yeah that was me
the racer back wife beaters on their own are fucking great tbt i love feeling like redneck gone goth
i usually wear the longsleeves like i would hypothetically pinroll pants
only on one side
pinch and pull it out at the hip
fold it back against the hip
tuck the excess behind belt
i had other ways of doing it but thats my preferred now
really just shut up and buy some ull figure ur own way to wear urs and what should sit where
unstable cotton is ""ok"" i think they are awful things honestly they stretch so fucking much no matter what size + u end up with monkey arms that fall miles past ur finger tips its stupid
love silk blends
hate the pilling but cold washing helps delay it
sheer cotton is nice too
never bought bamboo
looks sus re:owenscorp 2014 shilling
u have to have a relatively good figure whether ur shredded or cole mohr anorexic
newer season ones are a bit different and dont loosen as fast as they used to nor does the neck loosen into that really nice scoop
dont buy if ur like skinny fat and conscious of it because they will cling to ur bitch hips and fat stomach lmao
Would agree with this if i didn't own the Jason in dust. Seriously so light that you can wear it with a tee in spring/summers more mild days to make a fit more top heavy to balance out his chunky shoes/wide shorts. I get more use out of my dust Jason than my black gimp tbh
>hear about shooting at chris brown concert near my city
>end up on tmz
>see this comment under the video
Get a size smaller than you normally wear, this is a safe bet with most items with elastic waistbands since they stretch. Learned the hard way on going tts in prisoner drawstrings that I eventually had to bring in the waist and as a result shorten the draw strings so they're not visible under long ro tees, which I always liked the look of.
recently sold some stuff, but im looking for ramones or reverse leather geos
what do you guys think of the new ramoes with black toebox? i cant decide if i like them or not
anyone got that pic of lenny kravitz (sp) with the giant scarf?
He had on a pair of tan Rick side pouch boots if I'm not mistaken.
Hopefully pic doesn't rotate like last time smh
also, is that a casio & violin stand in the background? Invest in better instruments. I don't have any rick (mostly Siki Im, Yohji, & Issey Miyake), but at least I invest in good equipment. Get like a distortion pedal or synth or something
read the description
has anyone else had enough of the new mainline zipper pullers yet? mainline items with zippers unbuyable for third season in a row for me now.
