The Sartorial Relevance of Rob Zombie

I hope that most are familiar with Dragula to some extent. It's rougly 15 years old now and shows it's age. However, perhaps there are some current sartorial cues for us to take a look at in this video that may "cement" their timelessness.

Eh, probably not. But would you rather have me write about Unionmade's new arrivals?

Black leather trench coats...

Well, this is going swimmingly already. How many "timeless" people wear black leather trench coats?

*the crowd goes silent*

It looks like a current Varvatos design. I'll have to look further into this. Or you can.

Rob wears a hat for a total of 1.5 seconds in this video. Perhaps it shows a level of uncertainty and self-conciousness when he puts outdated hats on his head.

Perhaps it also shows how dumb some of you guys look wearing hats. Perhaps.

Rob has a dope car. Would he outstunt RL in a vehicle like this? Not sure if Ralph Lauren has a car like this. Maybe.

Well if Rob doesn't wear Varvatos then his bandmates certainly do.

Except for his robots. They just wear metal.

Zombie crossfades video of children in BoO over bombs blowing up. People who wear BoO aren't hard at all. They eat OJ and Nilla Wafers and still think they're in high school; a private institution where everyone wears repp ties, too short jackets, and twee collars. I concur with Rob.

Is that Sternberg though? Looks like he's jammin'.

Come over to the dark side Sternberg. BoO collab with Zombie in the spring. Please?

RL may have a car like this but RL doesn't have a buncha' demon homies to roll deep with.

Even if he does, they don't jam out like Rob Zombie and company.

Rob Zombie guest post on Ivy-Style.

This is European minimalist. Slimane.

ROB ZOMBIE WAS ALREADY THERE. Y'ALL THINK YOU'RE HILLARY AND NORGAY. DESIGNERS ARE JUST SELLING YOU NOSTALGIA.

Does RL have a buncha' witches to roll around with?

Well, he does have a wife and daughter.

So count Rob Zombie and RL even.



CONCLUSION:

Rob Zombie is just Varvatos.

Gilt always seems to have a buncha' Varvatos on the extra sale rack.

If they have Rob Zombie curate a Varvatos sale I bet they move a lot more Varvatos than they are currently. It's a one time cash-in but I figure it could be worth it. Enough kids grew up with Twisted Metal that I'm sure they could sell Varvatos on a nostalgia byline.

Gilt, get Rob Zombie to curate a sale. Do it. Do it now.
