    Hello, I would like to know is there are differences between the sole of the 'Tractor Boots'.
    I bought a pair of 'sock tractors' online but the sole seems more massive on mine than on other pictures I have seen yet.
    The question is: Is that just an illusion or are there really tinier versions of that 'tractor soles'?
    Thanks for your advices

    Looking for info on the quality of Babel leather jackets in comparison to other seasons and in general, especially the blistered leathers. TIA

    So Kim & Kanye held a laudation for Rick Owens yesterday, who received the CFDA award for Menswear Designer of the Year. I will spare you the video, it might trigger some members, haha.

    Love Kanye’s “I’m rich and famous, so I can look like shit” outfit. Only outdone by Kim’s Las Vegas stripper dress.

    It’s a "custom" Rick dress, apparently.

    I loved Michele’s laugh when Rick mentioned her. They’re cuties!

    There’s one thing that’s starting to annoy me about the construction of some RO garments. On one hand, I think it’s a nice little act of rebellion to treat all silhouettes equally, e.g. same inside pockets on all jackets, buttons on all pants etc. But on the other hand, this is also what frustrates me sometimes.
    I think there are pieces where the actual garment should’ve been taken into consideration some more. For example, why should a down jacket have the signature high and narrow armholes? It’s not practical at all, but it’s a characteristic all RO jackets have, so it must be this way. Same goes for some fabrics that just don’t work with certain pieces or could work if the garment itself was altered (reinforced seams on stress points etc.).

    What do you think?

    I know what you are saying. I don't understand why the sleeves have to so damn long on everything. But that's Rick's vision. And I am sure sales are lost because of that. I kind of respect that.

    I don't know if this is the case but im sure some production people might know.
    lean manufacturing and lean principles, where it increases the quality and the efficiency of the product when parts of a garment, such as button fly, types of buttons, inner pocket construction etc are all the same across sizes and across seasons etc as much as possible
    in such a case you do not need to make a new pattern or teach production people a new way of making an inner pocket every season.
    as such production is more efficient in terms of time, better in quality because the repetition by the same people minimizes mistakes etc...

    A lot of car manufacturers do this, and Toyota perfected this philosophy to become the most successful car company around

    Not sure what is going on with QC of newer products lately I read some posts here and there about it having gone downhill then right when I got back home I noticed that the sole of my Tractor Dunks was beginning to seperate from the body of the shoe itself. Not mad...just sad.

    Honestly, it's always been all over the place, from fantastic to mediocre.

    I think it's like from four years ago. I love that jacket, but can never find it.

    I might be wrong, but I think that this may be from Moody or Faun. SUCH a sick jacket.

    That waxed version is from Sphinx, FW15. I've seen people describe it as the "lung" jacket so try that as a keyword. There's also one in size 48 on eBay that's been there forever.

    What part of the sole? Kind of shitty if it’s a design flaw.

    I haven’t worn mine yet, but I see Marc Jacobs running sprints on the runway in the red version on Instagram.
