Buffalo Bobs

Casual Dark Gyaru(o) Host/Onii Price: ¥¥¥ (Mid-End) Website: www.buffalobobs.co.jp
Monochrome draping and a looser silhouette aim to add an onii-kei appeal to dark designer trends.

About



Buffalo Bobs Noir is a splinter brand under the Buffalo Bobs Label. It was created in 2011 to strengthen the appeal of Buffalo Bobs' darker items.

Styling



The subtitle of "Noir" fits the brand perfectly, combining a decidedly monochrome colour palette with drapes and anti-fit items to create a feeling of fluid darkness. In a lot of ways it resembles a more domesticated version of Julius’ vision of a post-apocalyptic grungy Tokyo, with a price point that makes experimentation a bit easier to attempt (even though Buffalo Bobs is beginning to sell more and more “premium” items).

Typical Noir looks include drapey t-shirts and vests combined with distressed denim or cargos and high-top sneakers or boots.

Adding a bit to this brand discussion, some fall leathers from Buffalo Bob's Noir are being re-released today (7/22):


This one was re-released a couple days ago:


It's hard to pick a favorite, I like all of them! (There was also this one, but I didn't really care enough for the design to post pictures.)

None of those are new actually, just rebranding/re-release :);;;

Side note, rather liking these pants:


Would anyone wear them? The silhouette seems kind of interesting. :S

They look interesting but I think they lack something for me to actually want to buy them tought.

I'm thinking that's the point, though. Like Brad mentioned in his write up, it lets people get a similar look to brands like Julius but at a lower price point. I think that's great. Fashion and style shouldn't be prohibitive.

japanese brands tend to derive a lot from each other in general. julius has a lot of "borrowed ideas" in its portfolio, too.

I posted this in the buffalo bobs thread, but now I have realized that it is actually part of the Noir line.

2011 AW has a rather nice "Rider's Shirt"- a long sleeved button shirt with a rider's jacket cutting and zip instead of buttons. It's quite interesting.
I like it other than the black line down the sides under the arms. As mentioned in the other thread, it may be ribbing. Even so, I don't like how it appears visually, to me there's too much contrast against the rest of the shirt. That aside, I think it looks great.

I hate plaid on men's shirts :(

For me, style is about spirit and attitude. My style is not about “age,” it’s about having a little fun, opting for a bit of glamour, and not taking yourself so seriously.

We know, you say it every time someone posts plaid. If that makes you think of a lumberjack that's your own weird perception.

As for this piece in particular though, I don't really like it. The shirt-jacket hybrid look doesn't do it for me. Lots of brands doing good plaid right now but this isn't one of them.

You really should. I simply find this confusing to have a topic for the ''Noir'' line but not from the main line.

On another note, I just found this coat on a website. I deeply love it
I don't know if it's from Noir line... but anyway, Ilike I just said, I love it!
It is in goat leather.

I believe this is under the Noir line, yes. I also saw it. CC has good deals.
