Outfit of the day: »What have you got?«

Let's talk about lasting effects. Marlon Brando achieved this not only with the sentence above in the film "The Wild One" - it was Brando's dry answer to the question of what he was rebelling against - but also with his look.

And since 1953, when the film was released, the combination of leather jacket, jeans and T-shirt seen there has always been associated with an understanding of coolness. The look has been deconstructed and reinterpreted again and again, but the effect of the casual and non-conformist remains. We briefly break it down. The leather jacket: one for all, it is the lowest common denominator of all fashion and political camps.

Pop stars choose them, rebels anyway - so Che Guevara also wore a legendary leather jacket - but not this wonderful model by Tom Ford. But now to the basic T-shirt, or how we sum it up succinctly: All for one. What does that mean? We at the ramp don't always agree. But the fact that the T-shirt SCT04 from the Good Basics line by Merz b. Schwanen is now also available in our shop is something everyone is really happy about.
