ITT: We post our grails
I would kill a man for this jacket.
>would kill someone for a trashbag with a patch on the back.
>being this boring
You literally have an piece of clothing ever made so what do you boring ass motherfuckers choose?The most bland boots ever made and some chelseas. The chelseas aren't even that bad but come on couldn't you pick something a little bit more interesting it is your holy grail of clothing after all.
I only see lace-up derby boots and strapped boots here. I kind of agree that it's silly to call one of the standard McQueen boots a grail, but I think that colorway was a seasonal iteration and the standard ones are burnished black and brown.
Aitor Throup Mongolian Horse Rider Jacket. I know I could never pull it off in the slightest but hey that's why it's a Grail...besides the fact that it was 20k.
Posting more Helmut because he is seriously underrated on almost everywhere.
Under-rated in what way? That his items still sell extremely well in the second hand market? That his influence is still felt in most modern menswear? That the current fashion calendar exists as we know it because of his decision to show in New York?
I can't say that I agree with your assessment.
undercoverism. 'paper doll' or 'arts n crafts'. cant seem to find a straight answer.
although i recently copped so grail acquired :3
People all to often forget Lang's equally impressive minimal side, which is just as impressive as all the straps and cutouts in my opinion.
Underrated was the wrong word to use. Maybe not talked about enough, obviously people still talk about him but not as much as I think he deserves especially here.this board is in love with "minimalism" and Helmut was amazing at doing minimal looks with hidden features the inside. To me it just seems like his designs fit with the aesthetic of many fashion sites but still he isn't as discussed as other designers
I ended up going on a family trip to sweden for a couple weeks to stay with my aunt and uncle, right before i left i posted on /fa/ asking what areas/shops of stockholm i should check out. i cant remember the trips name but he posted a ton of information mostly related to streetwear shops like i had asked. i had my eye on this jacket on the norse projects site since it had dropped and was hoping that i could find it. I had a screencap of that exact picture but didnt get the name in the picture or anything. so its my second last day before I was going to drive down to denmark and my dad and i decide to just go the two of us and spend some time in the city. I pulled out my phone and asked my dad if we could check out sneakers'n'stuff because it had been a recommendation and I was yet to find what i came looking for. I made it too the store about 45 minutes before they were closing and didnt see it on the racks. just before i was about to leave and check out the acne store which is just a few doors down i decided fuck it ill show one of the employees the screencap and ask if they can check the back for all their norse projects jackets. so the employee comes out with a rain coat and of course this parka in the beige colorway in my size. what was even better was the fact that they had just moved it too the back 2 days before as out of season stock and it was marked down 30%. unfortunately i didnt have enough myself to buy it but my dad stopped me from putting it back and pretty said something along the lines of "you came all the way to sweden looking for this jacket and to walk away from it would be a mistake" and pulled out his wallet and bought it for me.
honestly my favourite piece in my closet and it just brings back great memories of my trip and the great day i had with my dad. :^)
Those Ann D suede white hi-tops with the black tongues. I was really close to buying them new because I couldn't find them in my size second-hand, and they went deadstock the week before I planned to buy them.
If you're size 11 I have a pair that I'm so-so on keeping.Are these the ones you're talking about?
If anyone can grab me a link, I'd suck your dick.
That's not even really Helmut. He left in 2005 and if I'm not mistaken the split jersey tee is from this season. It still is nice clothing but no where near the level of 90s-00s Helmut Lang.
I've never handled pre 2005 Helmut so I can't speak on the quality, I just liked the shirt and didn't have to fuck around on Grailed to find my size.
If I get the chance I'll take a look at the earlier stuff, thanks for the info
Dude your being delusional all he's saying is that Old Helmut is on an entire different level from current Helmut. If you had tons of money and only bought new Helmut you would be a fucking idiot. The quality, design, cutting, almost everything went down hill once Lang left his brand.
theory owned helmut lang simply isn't comparable
they regularly put out failed abortions of garments
Why are all SLP fans such tasteless boring motherfuckers? Do you realize how boring this is. The construction isn't better the material may be slightly but it's certainly not special in any sense of the word besides the brand name on the tag. All SLP fans are degenerates and should be treated as such unless they forget all their transgressions and adopt more acceptable designers into their minds.
>they think this looks good
SLP fans, and I'd count myself one of them, want to wear clothes instead of drool over how different they are.
Sure, the clothing there isn't that creative in any dramatic way, but its just better than the other stuff, its simple, classic staples done in a style that appeals to a lot of people.
No is saying that Slimane is rocking the world of fashion to its core, just that we want to wear what he's making.
Paying ridiculously marked up prices for "classic" looks. Maybe if Hedi was using artisans to make his stuff and the best materials available I would feel differently. But the build quality is bad and the materials are nothing special. If you just want classics redone in a modern way why not go to A Wang, Robert Geller, or even Jil. I can understand the aesthetic SLP likes to emulate in their clothing and runways but paying so much for substandard clothing at least for that price point seems silly.
yes y!jp. got it for a steal too. cant wait to handle it. and still, ive never got a definitive answer on the season. but i do have my eye on some Arts & Crafts engineer boots as well :0
Jil and Geller yes, and T by Wang even Jil which was the nicest out of all of those and still cheaper was incredibly high quality. Hedi has dropped quality so much since he came from Dior. But keep defending the hack it makes me happy.
been looking everywhere for some reverse drips in my size, but no luck
I doubt he'll make another iteration
kind of lame, but this topcoat from Banana Republic. It costs $300 and I look pretty damn good in it, but I can't justify spending that much when I live in Southern California. If only I lived in New York, I'd buy it and walk around smoking cigars.
Aitors stuff cam seem a little over designed at times I think. But everything is there for a reason and my favorite thing about these jackets and almost everything he releases is it has a purpose that the piece was especially tailored for. The jacket is question was inspired for Mongolian horse riders. Everything is cut so perfectly and the fabrics are impeccable(or so I've read) . I long to own one of these pieces or really even try some on.
Herp derp. Guess I could have just googled that instead of asking. Sorry.
That coat looks pretty cool. I recall that the hood comes down pretty low and close on the forehead. His stuff does often look over designed, but that's part of what he's going for and the materials are usually simple, which plays against the complicated cuts, drapes, and seams. The coat would have to be worn as the statement piece of an outfit.
This plus the Raf Parka with all these edgy things
Sherlock's coat looks comfy as all fuck, but it's full-blown autism, so I can never wear it.
video related, the typical sherlock fan.
It's also "literally" not an MA-1 you fucking faggotron 5000
>Wrong colour sleeve cuffs
>Wrong zipper colour
>Wrong pocket placement
>Wrong fit (much puffier than in the pic)
>wrong waist elastic colour
>the AI MA-1 doesn't even HAVE the alpha industries tag like pic related
Are you daft?
>"literally" not an MA-1
you realise that ma-1 is an all encompassing term for that style of flight jacket
you realise it's an old edition of the alpha industries ma-1 tt
you realise you won't find one unless one happens to come up on ebay or grailed
it's just an ma-1 tt with different coloured ribbing and the flight tag on the ma-1 pocket you retard
I own two pairs of Ann sneakers and even after 2 years they're still in great shape. The soles got worn down pretty low on one pair so I paid $30 to get them replaced by a cobbler. The construction quality of high end sneakers in on another level to mall tier shoes that fall apart after 9-12 months.
Damir's Furo boots, I was about to get them, I swear to god the page in store was indicating the only available size which was mine, so I've made an order and everything went fine.
Until next day then I've got an email from DD store were they say it's out of stock.
What is wrong with you fucking site then?
It's Jil Sanders(designed by Raf Simons) fw08 ie: THE most talked about Jil show in the past ten years. There is no way you have been asking about this shirt for two years and not gotten a response. Everyone knows about this show. Here is even a thread from a year ago which I'm guessing must've been you where the answer was clearly stated. Either you stupid or this is a ruse.
i would do horrible horrible things to people i am very close to for these boots.
>2014 - 2008
>MOST TALKED ABOUT JIL SHOW IN THE PAST 10 YEARS
This show was years ago and it is one of if not the most popular show that the Jil Sanders brand has ever put out. So to wrap up: First off you're not finding this, second if you do manage to find it in your size you are obviously to stupid and poor to be able to buy it.
It has to be Vis, but I can't find a single fucking source for it.
literally so gross, 2012 x factor contestant core
available now at urban outfitters
archival stupid teenage boy with no taste
everybody sings his praises everywhere on the internet, is this your first day
end your life
here you go
>the most ordinary, never-not-available alpha bomber
looks just like old helmut lang
bullied at school and now lives in shoreditch core
please buy and wear this, you'll look hilarious
>raf by raf
this truly is the worst board
i'll never be enough rich to buy one, nor I will ever find something similar :(
i know they're not rare but god damn they're expensive. i love them, cant spend that much atm
Can't you just buy a plain pair of sneakers for like $50 and paint them yourself?
What are these sneakers in this thread at $500 or more? They seem like white sneakers. Can't you find similar from another brand for $100?
I mean he was one of the most influential and talked about designers of the 90s and 2000s so yeah you'll see him talked about oftenly. All I was saying is that I think much of his work is often forgotten about becuase of all the bondage stuff he did. It was a very prevalent design inspiration but he did so much more than that. I'll revise my original statement and say that minimal understated Helmut is underrated.
But it's still for sale on his site for a pretty reasonable price. Am I missing something?
Does anyone even wear this shit? I'm starting to think this board takes itself way too seriously and just wants to stand out and feel better by buying expensive and non conformist stuff. I just wanted to dress better instead of wearing cargo pants and sneakers everywhere. I'm starting to think I'm taking this shit too seriously now and if I keep going will start to want to buy stuff people have posted in this thread
If you want to dress "normally", then do so. I am of similar mind, I just admire Sruli's work. Part of the reason it is my grail is precisely because it is so out there. That is also the main reason why I will almost certainly never buy it.
>You will never have the confidence to pull off wizardcore.
>tfw too poor to cop this and go nxt lvl bussinessman
People like you are why this board is dying. It's not a fucking " I just wanted to dress better board" it's a fashion board. If you dont like it when people post actual amazing pieces if fashion then I politely ask you to go back to where you came from or if you sincerely want to dress better and don't want the fashion byproduct go to reddit seriously they can help you out a lot more than here.
That store looks dope AF, like everything there looks tight yet the atmosphere makes me feel like my anti-cool vibes wouldn't force me out yet welcome me anyway until i could buy all their stuff and become a better person.
Maybe he does but its his fantasy to be in the MC or maybe take the coat off a dead SS and wear it never wash it and smell the blood and brimstone.
Someday he will die in the coat and as Satans cold claws drag him to hell, he will take special care of him.
>contributing positively by adding something or even voicing constructive criticism
>whatever the fuck you just said
pick one troll. then post your grail rather than just sucking cock all night.
pic related is one of my grails. Probably would only wear around the house.
this coat from Project #2 - Proceed
this is felted wool, but i'm after the worsted linen one
the felted wool is the "cheap" version, @ about ~$2000, the manufacturing cost of the worsted linen version was apparently so much more, to the point that only 2 were made, one owned by Jan Jan himself, another sold to one boutique
So, a true grail, essentially unobtainable in my life time :(
would still be happy with the felted wool version if i had $2000 to spend, im just worried it might be too hot here to ever wear it
Pretty much uncoppable in the UK in my size :(
Not terribly hard to find, just too expensive for me right now
>>tfw no grail
that's just more of a sign of emotional maturity/fiscal responsibility.
in college $1500 leather jacket is pretty impressive when people can barely swing books.
but at 24-26, you can afford to but most everything on this list that is widely available at a retail location, you just don't because its not too impressive to be wearing rick owens when all your friends are married, having children, moving out of starter homes and buying their first $65k+ suv's to make sure said kids are "safe"
there are people on here my age that are retarded and spend a large sum of money on their clothing because there is literally nothing else to spend it on due to being single, so theres that
and the brands/grails are different.
cop a $350+ shirt because you had nothing going on a friday night vs some kid saving up for pod shorts...
they will look good on pale skinned women that are like 5'8-5'11" IE basic bitch model tier
you tend to look better in foot wear that covers as little of your leg as possible and tighter clothing which shoes of the leg shape rather than just have 26" of fabric draping from your crotch/inseam
you literally just sound like you're being contradictory for the sake of it. like you're opposing the point just for the sake of it, and then justifying it as best as you can.
do you ever consider toning it down just to sound more genuine?
>you literally just sound like you're being contradictory for the sake of it
welcome to sieg 101
he's morbidly overweight, blatantly never knows what the fuck he's talking about, moves goalposts transparently, and always acts bitchy about everything. he only talks to visibly new posters, never anyone he knows is informed. he never stops trying to remind people about how mid-tier/expensive shit is cheap to him, especially when that's not even what people are talking about in the thread. when someone calls him out he'll stick around to defend himself as anon for a while, then leave quietly.
just filter him and move on.
Just started lurking here for the same reasons as the guy you're responding to and you just saved me a lot of trouble. I can actually see where you're coming from and I think I understand /fa/ better now. Thanks anon.
I know and they'd probably even be worth it but I'm still at a phase in my life where I move and travel a lot. One of my former ten housemates stole the left side of my last Ann Demeuleemester boots while I was on vacation and I have no idea who it is. Now I have one useless right boot reminding me of the pair I once had.
