Lad Musician.
Image

History of Lad Musician:
Lad Musician was founded in 1991 by lead designer Yuichi Kuroda. Yuichi’s first show as a brand started in 1995 with his collection “Debut”, and is managed by FLOWERS. What inspires Yuichi to design his clothing is music and the musicians within the art form. Artists such as Bob Marley, The Sex Pistols, The Rolling Stones, The Smiths, and more are inspirations for the collections that are brought forth.

Lad Musician is known for having a tailored aesthetic with simple designs and fine-cut details. “Clothing fit for musicians” is the main driving force for the brand, as the collections and pieces that are sold are made for mobility and function. Each season Lad Musician brings forth new artist collaboration t-shirts (the past being The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, Bauhaus, Les Rallizes Dénudés, Spacemen 3, and the current being The Velvet Underground) which shows the homage to the musicians that inspire the entire season’s showcase.

Very simplistic, modern, and careful styling is what brings interest towards the brand. Recently with the introduction of the “Middle-Shirts”, interesting layering options that expose the cuff/shirt-tail are taken into consideration. Also, the short/long aprons when layered correctly add a further elongating illusion. Most of the clothing is fabric blended, which adds comfort to technicality. (Wool to Cotton, Rayon to Cotton, etc..)

__________________________________________________________


Purchasing:

I do most of my purchases either on:
1: Lad Musician Official Online Webshop.
2: COLLECT Shop Listings.
3: Rakuten Japan.
4: Yahoo! Japan Auctions.

Once I pick out the item I want, I shoot an e-mail over to SuToCorp,
(Which is my proxy service of choice; of course any will apply, with the item link, quantity, colour, size, and price).
They then respond and I send the payment for just the item itself.
From there I wait until they send me the amount for total shipping/fees.
Once they ship it out, it takes usually 3-4 days and it’s here.

__________________________________________________________


Sizing:

42 = XS/S.
44 = S/M.
46 = M/L.
In this case, sizing up to 44 or 46 is like a Longer S or a Longer M/L.
Generally Lad Musician is sized for taller/slim builds.
Usually the measurements posted on the site are accurate as well.
(But you should refer to a Japanese measuring guide for accuracy, as they measure differently than the U.S)

Personally, I am a size 42 in all Lad Musician pieces (aside from shoes).
I am currently 5’8 and 120lbs, so please refer to my outfit posts to see the fit on that sizing with my body build.
I own a few pieces in size 44, and they fit oversized on me (but not overly so). 44 is very versatile for a true Small to Medium.

As for shoes, I am a US9 around the board (41 in Common Projects) and my shoe size is 44.

For people with very specific questions, I honestly cannot answer all of those.
The best result is to just consult the measurements with your personal ones on the Japanese-scale.
Lad Musician is generally fit for a long build, and nothing is above 46 (and still fits fairly large/long at that point)

flintstone Links:

It’s best to get a feel when browsing through some stylings/pieces worn by others to get a general idea of how versatile the brand can be.
(Personally I find that the shop staff/people that wear the clothing put it together better than the runway stylings)
Here are a few links to some bookmarks I personally have and look through to get some flintstone :

Discussion:

Generally Lad Musician as a brand, Yuichi Kuroda as a designer, et al.
Also newer + older collections that are liked/that people find interesting and if anyone has ever owned/handled Lad Musician and their experiences.

i work at a consignment store and we got a lad musician shirt in one day (priced at $9 <_<) and no one acknowledged it until i stumbled on it. i honestly have no idea how it ended up in our store or who got rid of it, but it's pretty spectacular. it's a boxy faux leather t-shirt that fits me perfectly because i am a tall lanky doofus. i will share it with you all some day.

every season, lad tries to focus on tweaking various portions of the "staple" pieces. (such as button-ups, sweaters, etc...)
for example, this season the focus was on the "high-collar/loose collar" shirts, as opposed to last season which was straight up "collarless shirts".
each season brings out a staple/signature silhouette that sets the tone for the entire collection.

if you mean in GENERAL, the standard shirts, suiting, leather jackets, ma-1 jackets, "success rocker" t-shirts, and trousers/denim are always a constant.
fit/fabric also changes season to season, but standard things are usually getting the same run of fabrics.
(with maybe slight variations of fit, and with exception of the success rocker t-shirts, which are ALWAYS there)

this thread needs more pictures but it's fairly late over here.
tomorrow afternoon i shall flood in images.

okay guys, long overdue; but i have gone through and compiled essentially every image of the Lad Musician shop staff that has been uploaded.
i always feel as though the Lad Musician staff/editorials are better styled than the runway looks are (more often than not).
my next plans are to upload all the editorials they have been in as well as my own collection (probably in curatorial thread rather than here).

click here for the album.

also, here is one of my favorite editorials ever, modeled by Valter Torsleff for HUGE magazine :

@bela

(lol'd at george)

well I don't particularly see a specific "lad man".
but, i do believe being "tall", regardless of looks are a true fit for the clothing.

of course however, what i like about Lad Musician is that the pieces really are fit for all types of people.
usually on wear.jp, instagram or various blogs, lad musician pieces are put together with other designers/brands.
definitely there are also people that do the whole lad set-up, but the ability to mesh with other types of clothing is a strong point.

also even if you aren't tall, the sizing still works out where the fit is desired. so i'd think that various body shapes also work well.
of course like dior homme, and various japanese brands, the sizing is a little small/lanky/closer to the body (due to japanese general sizing).
also women that wear lad also style it very well and make it look good, so a+ to that as well.

Lad Musician S/S'15 : MINIMAL ART ROCK 20
(click the link for a view of the collection on fashionsnap)

released this morning/last night in Japan and was hosted at The Garden Hall/Yebisu Garden Place.
this year celebrates lad musician's 20th anniversary (hence the minimal art rock "20").
main theme seems to be "spacemen 3" once again (previously was in F/W'13), only built upon and expanded with prints.
the beginning of the show places a lot of emphasis on the prints regarding spacemen 3.
culottes pants make a resurgence and we're presented with a lot of interesting cuts in terms of outerwear pieces/knits/sweaters.

_________________________________________________

here are a few stand-out pieces/coordinations i really liked:

_________________________________________________

my first reaction and thoughts on this collection :

initially i was very surprised to see the beginning of the show full of printed sweaters/t-shirts depicting various spacemen 3 arrangements.
i didn't dislike it, since i like the band personally. i was afraid that this show was going to be nothing but printed pieces; but i was mistaken near the end.
the use of colour in this collection is very boldly highlighted and creates interesting colour palettes.
for example, i really really enjoy the red/blue combo shadow plaid.
it goes from HEAVY PRINTS to minimal white at the end of the show.
which to me is brilliant in going all-out flashy in the beginning and ending with clean, full white compositions.
i particularly really liked the printed parkas and the white ma-1 blouson.
those two pieces really did it for me, and will be a for-sure purchase i will make upon release.

overall, i really really enjoyed this collection.
it isn't overly strong to me, which is fine. the stark contrast from beginning to end, and the interesting cuts on the parkas made it.
i feel as though F/W'14 and F/W'13 were so strong to me initially which is why i'm not overwhelmed, but i think S/S'15 held it down in my opinion.

any other inputs/thoughts are encouraged!

thank you everyone for the comments, i appreciate it.
since this brand/designer is a big interest of mine, i try my best to convey how i feel about it and hope that others can understand what i mean.
i like to at least share my knowledge here since lad musician isn't covered much in western fashion editorials/features, but is slowly getting there i think.
although i dislike how ssense is carrying them with such a high mark-up. but of course, it's to be profitable.
seriously wonder how they did with the previous collection in terms of sales.
i would like to see others post as well with their thoughts and some images, so please feel free to put out some content here!
_______

also, i thought this look was so great, despite my aversion to the denim/denim-cut :

it seems that the A/W'14 releases are slowly coming to a close.
which means that it will go from sale seasons to the transition to the S/S'15 fairly soon.
i still have a fairly long list of things i want to purchase before this season is over, so hopefully some of them end up in sale when the time comes.
whenever i'm not busy, i will try my best to at least photograph a few of my stand-out pieces that i own and give some insight on those as well.
anyway, here are some recent editorials on lad musician a/w'14:

@gerogerigegege (or anyone else who owns this) how do you wash your Lad Musician rayon/cotton flannel?

Image

The care-tags on mine suggest that it shouldn't be washed in water or in the washing machine. Are you supposed to dry-clean it?... How often do you wash yours (if ever)?

It doesn't smell terrible or anything but I haven't washed it at all because I have no idea how.

For a shoesize of 8.5D should I go with Lad 42 or Lad 44? How's LM footwear in general? Worth it at MSRP? Worth only on sale? Worth only if you're part of the #ladlyfe?

^ sorry for the late reply; but speaking of shoe sizes:

gerogerigegege wrote:Image
Lad Musician A/W'14 Wool Trousers + Ankle Cut Shoes.

just received these A/W'14 Ankle Cut Shoes in, my first pair of shoes from Lad!
it's hard to really gauge the sizing of their shoes actually it seems.
i am a U.S. 9 in all shoes (Vans, Etc. Size UK 42 in Docs) and these size 44 shoes fit great.
there's a little bit of room in the toe, but nothing too drastic. fit overall is snug.
i'd definitely advise going to a 42, just due to the toebox.

to talk about the quality, the leather on these are very soft and comfortable.
it seems that it's fairly thin however, so it's very easy to crease (which i don't really mind too much).
walking on the raised creeper heel needs some time to get used to, but otherwise they are great.

@raags : pants are really great, fit is spot on and the adjustable waist is really useful to getting a perfect waist-fit.
the bottoms are actually cut so that you can finish-stitch them to the length you want, so i'm going to crop them as opposed to rolling them up.
thankfully the wool is fairly thin, so it's warm enough for winter and thin enough to wear for the warmer seasons.

@pips : they do have womens sizes actually! only for a few shoe styles, but for the shoes i have and the low version they have sizes 38-40.
the sizing is on the website in terms of the sizes they cover, just convert it to japanese -> american sizing.

@troy : i heard the sale seasons started awhile ago in-stores actually, shame that they didn't come to the webshop as quickly/heavily.
sizing is variable, i think you just have a versatile build that can fit all the sizes (which is great).
since i'm fairly mid-range height (5'8) and skinny/lanky, taking anything other than a 42 is pretty baggy on me.

resurrecting this thread with:

Lad Musician A/W'15-16.

here's the description found on the page with my translation:

黒田雄一が手がける「ラッド ミュージシャン(LAD MUSICIAN)」の2015-16年秋冬コレクション。"曖昧さ"を追求して、性別やモードやストリートのジャンルにも捕われないジェンダーレスでミステリアスな人物像を表現したアイテムを提案。Tシャツやスウェット、ピック型ネックレスでは、ブランド創立20周年を記念して楽器メーカー「フェンダー(Fender)」とコラボレーションしたロゴデザインを採用した。

Yuichi Kuroda's work on Lad Musician's 2015-16 Autumn/Winter Collection.
He pursues "gender ambiguity", without the preconception of "Mode" and "Street Style";
he proposes that it's more-so genderless and perceives a "mysterious person/aura" through the facial expressions and garments worn.
The T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, and Guitar Pick Necklace are representative of the brand's 20th anniversary as well as the brands collaboration with Fender.

___________________________________________________________

my thoughts:

i think it's really strange to see that lad didn't do an official "runway" this time around.
i'd have to do some asking and snooping around to ask as to why this is, but it struck me as a little odd.
regardless, overall i'm very lukewarm on this collection as a whole.
i'm not a huge fan of the really clunky boots/sneakers this time around, a lot of it just seemed too "much" i think.
there are a lot of pieces here that have potential; and i know that when they're styled on the shop staff/editorials it'll shine through much better.
i do like the mix of dark colours (as usual) and tartan plaid prints; however some of the graphics seem a bit corny.
THAT LONG MA-1 THOUGH, real nice. the layering this time around seems to be really overboard, but i think a lot of the time it works well.

that was my first reaction and maybe it'll take me some time to warm up to it.
however there are a lot of pieces that caught my eye, and it looks like layering might be fun next time around for the a/w season.

____________________________________________________

my personal favorite looks:

THIS one, stood out to me the most i think. the colours/silhouette is nice.

Not the kind of stuff I normally associate with DAD but quite fun. Looks like a ss collection in some places. Bare ankles in winter is for the hard man.

i see the gender ambiguity, seems more skewed toward the "feminine" which is not really my thing but i like a few pieces. i haven't really delved outside of the staples (lad trousers (love)). hopefully i can catch some of the ss15 spacemen 3 and rayon shirts on sale somewhere, totally missed during the ssense sale.

the trousers here look super interesting though, along with the bball-esque sneakers.

i definitely see what you mean.
i think lad is very accustomed to being called a "mode" brand, which is sleek silhouettes and usually very straightforward.
this collection seemed to show that kuroda wants to expand himself again and show in a more "fashion" mindset than previous seasons it seems.
definitely think that it's also the reason why it ended up showing very late in the A/W'15 showing season.

that being said, i'm curious to check on the lad musician-interested people over in japan and their thoughts on the collection.
generally when you see lad on social media sites and stuff, it's styled very mode-style; so this change might off-put or further put interest in people.
sale season should be fairly soon though, they released the "out of order" hats already from the A/W'15, so they might start churning out simple pieces from A/W'15 first.

^ yeah this collection is definitely a break from the tight features and mode style, seems like he's been slowly putting out pieces like this too once in a while (i'm thinking aw10) but this is full out. i doubt it will continue for ss16 but we'll see! definitely interested in reading others reactions like you said.

looking over it again my favorites are:

Spoiler:
Image

Image

wasn't too into these at first but that first styling is great.

Image

if this wasn't on a sweater i would probably hate it lol.

Image

consider it copped.

Image

the trousers.. really hope they come in burgundy.

Image

i really really need to see this shirt styled differently.

Image

is that an attachment that can be removed? interested. sneakers are great too.

Anyone own the "sneakers" like these: https://www.ladmusician.com/webshop/pro ... 2&color=25 ? Pretty much a derby with a wedge sole, it seems. Blake stitched sole or something? Can't tell. Taking a gander and saying no because I don't see any visible stitches though?

i own the ankle-cut version, and i can't really tell you in terms of how it's connected since it's seamless without stitching and hard to tell.
the wedge is very soft and almost cushion-like though, it keeps them really comfortable to walk in.

Semi-accidentally won a Lad tee for $9 on yahoo auctions, excited to try them out. My lanky body might be too big, but considering they're somewhat difficult to get in the west (only real stockists are ssense and oc, both pretty limited?) I'm excited to at least give it a shot.

Also have a flannel coming from Grailed.
