Thanks for posting, i'm glad black is back in the spotlight even though it never really left my style philosophy. I do agree with the bit about being easily typecasted by wearing too much black though...it seems i'm the only kid a lot of times in class who is wearing clothes of a darker palette, everyone is in their bright colored polos and college sweatshirts with splashes of yellow and whatnot. Still, I find it suits my general mood and character best, so I stick with it, despite possibly alienating my peers (hmm...maybe that isn't a good thing ).

i really like the outfit styled with the rick owens jacket, black levi's and CCP boots.

yea, the model is too Gucci for this, isn't he?

I love almost all of it. I don't like the last look, and I don't like the velvet blazer - I'm afraid Tom Ford has ruined the velvet blazer for me forever.

Hehe.. yeah he has ruined it for me too.. when i saw him in some article from GQ, wearing a velvet blazer and white button down shirt.. with like 4 buttons undone, so that his chest hair would be visible

Those CCCP boots are available at L'eclaireur in Paris, right??

go-mo I love that everything has to be labeled..........

great article though.....agreed that the model isn't dirty enough.....looks like one of those architects/art star holdovers the article references.

I've attached a picture (From Y! auctions) of what I think is the most brilliant and mind boggling item of black men's clothing I've seen in recent memory, or perhaps ever. I dunno...there's just something so sinister, dirty and menacing about this jacket, I couldn't stop returning to stare it at every few minutes for the past half hour. It almost has an element of evil, definitely got a very dangerous edge. Maybe it's the lighting, but if the jacket has that kind of psychological effect in real life then I am simply blown away. I'd love to own and wear this if I could afford it, it is such a true work of art, what a powerful statement that would be!

Mmm, those looks are all perfect. That is all black done extremely well, imo...especially that first look, with the jacket's pitch black next to the texture of the shirt which gives it an almost charcoal grey appearence, it looks amazing.

and that fourth look, I could live in that and be quite content.

Agree with FtB and Spike, the Rick Owens/Levis/CCP outfit is pretty close to perfect.

FtB, I like that danger jacket too, who makes it? Pardon my ignorance

faust, thanks for posting!

Ah my bad for not putting the designer in my post. The jacket is by CCP...going on Y! now for 270,000 yen (about $2,300 USD), and if my reasoning skills are correct, from the description it says there's only 18 copies of that jacket in the world.

Fade to Black, I think this jacket is part of your soul now. May I respectfully suggest you buy it. Find a way. Discovering this jacket is like finding a true love, I feel this coming through in your post. In life you must always grab true true love when you find it.
