Cheers, got them a while back. Some guy on styleforum was selling them right after last year's patrik ervell sample sale in nyc - there were loads there apparently.

looks good electrolux but i'd ditch the rolls, i think you're doing the whole OL look really well there but the rolls dont suit it.

What exactly is an OL look. I don't check for OL like that but from the lookbooks and store fits I have seen, it seems like mundane slouchcy bum wear, inspired by 50+ men who are divorcees/widowers/long time loners who live as hermits, occasionally going out to the grocery store to fill up on cans of tuna, or their pathetic part time job as an envolope inspector.

I do like wat dana lee is doing with laze wear tho

i dont even know. OL's a weird one, they dont seem to have a consistent source of inspiration with each collection, but there are a few characteristics that we see in every collection like the emphasis on fabric quality and patterns, particularly in their shirting (probably what they're most known for). i think you're right in one sense, part of it is the mundaneness because it is a very simple aesthetic in most cases.

It's just basics isn't it? Maybe with a bit of a heritage influence? Shirts, sweats, jackets etc. but with no real emphasis on a certain style or aesthetic (which in itself becomes an aesthetic).

Not everything has to have shite branding on it to make it interesting. Tender loin…O RLY.

Never claimed that was interesting. Note that it's in the classifieds. Plus it's a golf jacket…not exactly streetwear Eye-wink

Bit of both mate, it's slightly boxy which i like as it gives a smarter look than a standard denim jacket.

You still here then?

I don't think anyone actually said anything had to have visible branding to make it interesteing? Anyway, not all Tenderloin clothing has noticeable or obvious branding. Probably about half the stuff I own has no external branding whatsoever.
