Favorite bombers available now? I've been putting off getting one for the past 3 years and I still want one so I guess I should shop around.
I might even bite the bullet on the rick owens bomber from pic related. Any fit pics involving the classic rick owens bomber?
Preferably some more low key looks, bonus points for ramones/no geobaskets.
Heres a pic that shows the fit of the bomber pretty well. found on somebodies grailed
>Alpha slim fit, really the only way to play it
yeah I agree. that's probably why he's selling. Still the details on this jacket just make it so ideal to me.
I just worry it'll be impossible to pull off casually, because I don't really pride myself on being the most avant-garde dressed person in the building. Especially considering where I live, I want to be well dressed but not that weird guy.
alpha industries vs rick is it even a competition
this season visvim is the best MA1 in awhile, gonna cost an arm and a leg tho
Suede rick owens ma-1
nice price as well
Daily reminder that wearing bombers with a long hair like this make you look like a backward ass redneck fuck.
Wear bombers with very short or militaristic haircut otherwise you look cringey as FUCK. You better off with wearing a peacoat lmao
i don't like these bomberjackets that are just copies of the real ones. i prefer sticking to the originals
srsly seeing people with these wannabe bombers makes me cringe.
>german luftwaffe bomber jacket, one of the best.
this is current grail
too bad sold out in XS in all shops
please take back what you said about ramones
AI Wainwright is my fav, although its sorta different. Only found on offhand websites at this point, but I love it.
i have the burgundy zara one
imo fits pretty tts but definitely slim
the hardware is garbage though
makes me want to go buy some zippers and redo them, can't really do anything about the snap button inside
If your gonna buy a bomber jacket buy a military made one, atleast your going to get both the quality and comfort out of it. Maybe pricey but worth it. When you buy one from a shitty faishon store your buying thin layers of scrap.
Just ordered Alpha Industries slim fit for pretty cheap, tag still attached. Stoked 2bh. Anyone have experience with this one in particular?
Lang never ever ever said anything about them being "bondage". Please find somewhere he referenced the carrying straps as bondage. That is only a term that has been given to his jackets with the straps by onlookers. Many of Langs pieces had cuts reminiscent of restraints and bondage, but I don't think Lang ever wanted them to be seen as overtly sexual. So no I was not "pretending to be retarded". You have no idea what you are talking about, just reforming the bullshit that pf and others have said before. So next time you try and act smart, keep that shit to yourself.
What is boring about carrying straps? It is true to the point of their function. It is much better than some untrue and fictional name like "bondage straps".
Like if you had a Lang bomber and you were walking down the street, carrying it on your back. Someone approaches you and asks you about it and the straps, are you going to say "err u-uhh they are b-bondage straps" and loom like a gimp fag, or are you just going to say "oh they are there to easily carry the jacket when I don't want to wear it"
>pic unrelated, only pic of a bomber I have on this phone and trying not to derail too much
fuck off you don't know shit
>caring about what people think
The xs from grailed?
Neat. Always wondered tho about the neck, do you roll it up or leave it as is? My bull bomber does the same thing and sometimes it feels like i need a longer neck to pull it off :s
Not him but I work in fashion and you have to realize how much published content is solely the work of a single, and often misinformed employee at the company. You see so many errors and points lost in translation being put forth as fact from fashion publications, and even more so with non - fashion oriented news companies like The Atlantic.
Not the most familiar with Helmut but I do recall reading about Helmut fanatics elsewhere saying that he was inspired by aerial / flight gear, and that the bondage label was given afterwards by observers. That probably was lost somewhere via word of mouth, and came to be interpreted as some by "He was inspired by bondage gear".
i'm in the industry also
this article was published on multiple websites by the author, not just The Atlantic
and yes HL was definitely, and obviously inspired by all aspects of the military.
Whether HL has commented directly on the bondage influence or not, fashion critics all refer to the straps as bondage straps and is the correct term when speaking on HL products
Basically what everyone else has said, anyone can look at pieces and how they are presented and guess at the designers influences. But in the end, even if the guesses (big emphasis on the fact that they are guesses) influences are nothing more than just that. I can look at a Rick mountain hoodie and say it looks like a nazgul hood, doesn't mean that suddenly Rick is inspired by Lord of the Rings.
I'm pretty confident that the bondage straps are sexual. The positions of the straps tend to be cupping ur ass and also he has tom of england t shirts, shirts with nipples hanging out and all sorts of naughty stuff
For some reason I highly doubt that you work in the industry.
Also the original argument was the provenance of Helmut's inspiration for the straps, not which term is more widespread.
got my degree in march and have been a technical designer for 8 months
didn't backpedal at all
stating that helmut hasn't commented on it publicly doesn't take away from my side at all
all his shows were sexual
not just in presentation but in detail
Don't know whether too go M or L... Got a feeling I'm the M will fit very nicely but come up a little short in the sleeves and length.Guess I'm gonna have to go find it in person
I have one of these and have slowly added patches and pins over time... One of my favourite jackets
Anyone know where to get some /prep/ bombers like this one?
This one is from J Crew but over priced and perpetually sold out.
Aww that's cute, you've seen the picture of pigfucks ass and now you think you're right. Sexual elements =/= Everything revolves around sex
Rick has shown ducks hanging out, breasts on obvious display below thin gauze. Margiela constantly had girls I'm tight as tops that would very obviously show off their breasts. As I said before: because they had those in their show, does that make the entire thing sexual? Do you really think rick was referencing glory holes when he did shit like that? Or when Dries displayed pic related on a runway, was he suddenly inspired by bondage and BDSM? Look at the rest of the show, even though the straps are featured throughout there is still very little sexual nature to it
>all his shows are sexual
>God look at all these fucking sluts, disgusting. Put some clothes on you degenerates
Even being completely clothed yoy can still make the cuts sexual, provocative, and displaying the body. That is simply not happening here, everything is fairly modest. Even the dresses that feature the cuffs high on the arm do not strike as sexual at all, more powerful than anything. Making everything revolve around sex is never something Helmut untended to do, again yes, he might have had some influences but not to the point of "every show he has done was sexual"
If you really did study and now work in the industry you really need to open up your mind and see what's real, and stop the blind consumption of information that isn't and has never been true.
goat from Saint Laurent
black is better but green is easier to see in pictures
I own an acne selo which is my 2nd favorite but if i could afford an slp bomber I'd have it
Can someone tell me where to find pic related please?
He's wearing it in this interview.
I wanted something soft for indoors, but not too thin like all the ones I've seen in shops. It looks like a nice balance between soft/puffy and durable. Any help appreciated
Thank god for that tag.
it's from BLK DNM. that's what their tags look like.
Which color should I get for my to-be winter jacket?
Unrelated: why does it say it's a parka when it's clearly a bomber?
Is Alpha Industries a meme now? never really being into bombers but just looking through their stuff I like their bombers a lot, want to cop both black and olive of this one.
and maybe this one too, the black one.
I only have an old ripped sweater I wear because it fits the style I go for (SLP harness boots and black skinny jeans)
Should I cop? How's the quality of AI?
Really considering this one, or the longer version. Thoughts /fa/ ?
