Not a grail per se but I'm definitely eyeing it.
Ysl Chelseas are sold grails.
I've got several items on my list, like high-end Cordovan dress shoes for profession, slim cargos by some map brand for leisure, higher end outerwear for the cold months etc., lots stuff far beyond my spending capacity
God damn all of you suck so fucking much things that came out last year shouldn't be fucking grails. SLP puts out fucking Chelsea every season, Damir makes hightops every season, Y3 puts out qasas every season. Come back when you have actual interesting taste
everyone puts out chelseas every season, that doesn't mean that a specific season chelsea by a specific brand isn't a solid grail. things like construction, materials, design details, versatility, etc. can make an item a grail.
also, >interesting taste
what's so innovative about a joy division towel you edgelord
feels so bad man
I just want one physical classic vapor release.
You obviously have no Idea what you're talking about. Which is completely fine but when you act like you know shit then you're wrong. If everyone puts out Chelseas then why are SLP's the best? They are known to have shit quality footwear that is overpriced.
Says the kid who wants fucking chelsea boots.
lmao i have chelseas and they're not slp and i'm not the one who posted slps. but even if i were, the point is this: a grail is a grail because it's specifically and exactly what someone wants. it meets all of their requirements, it's perfect to them probably to the point of fetishization.
now, if a joy division towel is perfect to you, that's fine and cool, but don't act like it's edgier than someone's chelsea boots. because it's not.
Mother fucker do you know what the Holy grail is? It's a cup that has been sought after by almost all of humanity but had eluded everyone for millennium. A grail is something you have searched and searched for but still cannot find. It is rare and sought after by many. Not something that you can find from many different designers. You can go onto eBay/grailed/supermarket/sz right now and find tons of pairs of qasas or Chelseas. This "towel" is one of the most sought after and rare pieces from all of Jun Takahashi's career. It's rare like the actual grail, it's beautiful like the holy grail. If honestly think that just because you want to cop an item really bad or even if it's the perfect item for you, if it is readily fucking available it isn't a grail.
Euro usually only ever has hyped shit. He does sometimes get some really cool archival pieces but hes shit just like pigfuck. They both just charge crazy prices which just leads to the downward spiral of sellers charging higher and higher prices for archive pieces. I'm never going to buy a piece that may even be my grail if it's ridiculously marked up that's just fucking stupid. But not hate to Euro or Piggy they're making money doing it because they know silly little new money asain kids will buy their shit because the Internet told them to.
>tfw you can't find a varsity you like more or even slightly comparable
Fuccin' Hedi man...
>all of humanity
do you even history? or do you just eurocentric history u lernt in american high school?
1. the holy grail of jesus based christ
2. a thing being sought after
so if i seek a thing, that makes it a grail. it doesn't matter how many other people seek it or how rare it is. it doesn't matter if it's readily available. it just matters that i am seeking it. or that another person is.
Whatever you say buddy. Start up the damage control people this one is going to be big
is "lel damage control" a new meme for "my argument was just surgically deconstructed at the atomic level and i have so much of my self-esteem invested in said argument that i must do whatever i can to discredit the person who destroyed me so that i can maintain my own pathetic self-concept" ?
Haha OK buddy you seem to be getting a little heated here if you want to use your definition of the word have fun with that. I'm just going by my definition that I've seen many others use as well. What's your grail btw I am honestly intrigued
"cute jacket anon, did you get it at Urban Outfitters?"
Hahah, funny man, good joke I get it.
I already have it lol. From the first season, own it for almost 6 years now :) Shitty phone pic but whatev
A ToJ is next on my outerwear wishlist
>tfw visvim sheepskin robe costs more than my car
near 20K if i recall
>Come back when you have actual interesting taste
>posts the same shitass hot topic blanket that every 16 year old with a tumblr account has reblogged at least 1000 times
Actually, Paul Smith has been doing bombers in suiting fabrics every now and then. Nothing that I know of that's current, but it's a good place to start if you're after "tweaked tailoring".
What do you mean? By a $1000 a year do you mean that is your leisure money and the rest of your checks go to bills, or you actually make less then a hundred dollars every month? How are you even affording?
Honestly the price point was really high when it started out. There's not as much name recall and hype as an incentive to break the bank on an upstart Canadian brand (we don't really have that much history when it comes to upscale street/menswear) compared to say, an obscure Jap brand. But seeing the jacket in person and trying it on made me a believer.
These socks are harder to get than artwork from the real artist
also that convo with the 33 year old broke possibly disabled hypebeast is makin me sad
There's nothing. There are two noragis in straight denim on Rakuten for under $500, but as far as the one pictured, good luck, you'll never find anything remotely close.
I wouldn't even suggest finding a tailor to attempt something like this - most likely they'd fuck it up and you'd waste your money
I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll never have this
Feels bad man
Pic related my grail which I should be able to obtain at some point, if I can just keep saving.
>tfw ill never have vaginas
hold me bros
Been wanting these for a long time now, I originally passed them up whenever all the rafdidas were going on sale for like sub $200 because I told myself that I only wanted them because they were cheap and memeshoes or w/e. I've regretted it ever since, and finding the colorway I wanted and in my size was really, really hard.
>was really, really hard
I just bought a BNWT pair off Rakuten in pic related colorway and I'm the happiest man alive, maybe
That's the Holy Grail. "Grail" is just an antiquated term for a chalice-style cup.
The Holy Grail has endured as an object of desire for centuries, so the term "grail" is used as a common slang term for something one greatly desires. Here at /fa/, we use it like >>8850120 said; to describe an item we desperately want but can't find/afford
>Another piece of the puzzle :^)
not much of a grail
but I just wanted to buy a pair of dbss sneaks for myself
I've gotten memed and I cant get up
sold everywhere, tons of them in bst/grailed
>looney tunes raf

evreywhere + grailed/bst from fuccbois who bought them for cheap from that canadian store. they are creasing shit too, and numbers on derbies look retarded
