Yes? Lunar core is the next hype. Look at how many big brands started making clothing based on this style.

@askme
lunarcore is part techwear, which is experiencing its moment right now, part milsurp, which is fairly timeless

i think one of the nice things about lunarcore is that it borrows from/is inspired by such a broad oeuvre from many decades, cultures, genres. so the style already has a story that's familiar to most and yet it's not confined to a strictly historical catalog...it's an evolving "costume" and one that is constantly redefined and very relevant to contemporary society.

now contrast that to americana, where the references are to an older era so it's more limited in it's space to experiment. that's not to say that backwards-looking styles are stale or don't allow for reinterpretation and creativity...it's more that this style accomplishes something cool, which is its very core quality of both looking backwards and forwards

I this user, tapered it and looks pretty exactly like which I posted before starting the project (pic rel). It absolutely does work tied off even with another jacket on the top, looking like exaggerated cargos but definitely workable. However with how bulky the top is, I don't think it'd work as full coveralls like @Evilember
said unless you have a VERY built upper body.

@Ignoramus
Damn bro, those have gotta be the coolest tees I've ever laid eyes on, but you're right about the price. I'd feel like an absolute fucking idiot wearing a tee shirt that expensive, even if I were a damn billionaire. A lot of people here might disagree, but I personally am in love with clothing that's both interesting/unusual looking AND cheap. If you're a model or whatever and you end up getting free swag through your job, yeah that's one thing, but forking over a hundred plus bucks for a fucking tee shirt, no matter how damn sweet it is, is just unthinkable. It's easily do-able for silver spoon millionaire faggot twinks to dress well, that's not even a fucking challenge, but the idea is to dress with STYLE, not simply with shit that costs a fortune. There are obviously talented designers only too happy to sell cool shit to dumb rich motherfuckers, but the rest of us have to figure out how to do it on the cheap. You wanna save the lion's share of your money for going out and enjoying life, after all

@lostmypassword
Can someone explain Lunarcore to me?

I don’t understand it as much. Is the point meant to look like you’re part astronaut part hype-beast? I don’t mean hype beast in a bad way, but it’s the only term I can drum up whenever I see the shoe choices.

Is there any underlying ideas for the choices? Whenever I think astronaut suits I think utilitarian. However, I cannot really connect these two together as well because of this. So I’m guessing it’s just based off of the color palettes and base theme? What’s up with all of the pockets in much of the clothing, and does it serve a purpose?

I’m confused.

SomethingNew
SomethingNew

@Carnalpleasure
Recently the look has become a bit more formulaic with bomber/jacket, cargos, boots being the norm. That's fine but pretty bland considering the initial intent of lunarcore was to make people think for themselves and develop a look based around ideas and nebulous feelings rather than a set of choices.

I think ideally lunarcore is meant to evoke crewmen on a space freighter or residents of a harsh alien planet. Blue collar is the goal rather than some sort of sterile future utopian colony, which has been done to death in the media.

As for the shoes, tall utilitarian boots tend to fit the aesthetic well. It just so happens that Nike released a few hyped up sneaker boots recently that work in lunarcore fits. Some more hypebeast designers like KTZ have also released very futuristic spacey footwear in the past few years. If these have been adopted by the lunarcore crowd I think it's more because they have design details (ribbing, buckles, straps, height, palette) that fit with the look we're going for.

Pockets are just another common feature of utilitarian military clothing, which a lot of sci-fi costuming is based around. John Mollo, the costume designer for the first three star wars movies, was a military history buff with no costuming history prior to the trilogy. His use of military gear and inspiration from all across history influenced at least one generation of designers and captured the minds of most people who saw the films. For better or for worse cargo pockets are now a key feature in most sci-fi works. Lunarcore may choose to incorporate a lot of pockets that are not actually used but that's not really any different from Tom Dick or Harry on the street rocking a pair of cargo pants. You think he actually fills all those pockets?

mostly its a look you can pull off without spending too much $$, with pieces that you can get dirty and abuse. i like that

@Carnalpleasure
because it's been like three or four years since lunarcore threads were a common thing here
this new wave of posters don't have the same kind of background and knowledge so they show up into these threads and say 'this sounds cool how do I into lunar? bomber and cargos? got it'

there are a few great people here discussing and providing inspo but it does take time and effort to build an outside the box wardrobe or even one fit
most of the actual fits posted here are from people trying to establish a basic starting point

I figure if productive discussion keeps up we'll eventually start to see more interesting fits from people

it's cool that you're voicing your ideas and opinions though
keep it up
that's what drives things forward

@BlogWobbles
for me, the jury rigging DIY and creative aspect of lunarcore is the most compelling part of this style. which is somewhat antithetical to a lot of these guides... i mean, they are ok as a launching off point but the style naturally invites imagination so it's a shame if people just stop after acquiring a bomber and cargo pants.

i would highly recommend thrift stores as a way to get into this style. in part because you can find some relevant 80's and 90's era pieces for dirt cheap in the forgotten pile, and a lot of influences came out of those periods. but also because recycling random pieces and figuring out how they all work together is, at least to me, essential to what i think lunarcore is all about

*Star wars primarily 4/5/6 but there's some inspo in 1/2/3 as well
*Elysium
*Treasure Planet
*Titan A.E

And ive seen little bits and hints of inspo in generic sci fi/action movies like Guardians of the galaxy, escape from NY and movies like that

Cowboy bebop had some cool stuff
As well as Trigun

Ummm and a plethora of 80s B-list sci fi movies and shows

Thnx but I have a feeling it's gonna start to become mainstream in the next few yrs.

I just like dressing like a space pirate and wondered why society hadn't caught up to the sci fi movies of old.

I also like the cross over between milspo and lunarcore, most of my pieces can be interchangeable with pure milspo outfits so I don't have to wear just one style

There was some stuff that I might still get like some of the jackets and women's vests

The white one is a womens white vest from joe fresh

I like how the women's vests are more cropped which shows the t-shirt or long sleeve and contrasts varying lengths giving a fit more dimensions

so i have pants that taper pretty similarly, meaning they are almost leggings in the calf area except that they're long enough to stack kind of like what you have going on here.

do you find that the stacks migrate throughout the day? i end up having all the stacks bunch up down at the cuff, and then this area between the calf and knee is like skintight and look pretty bad. how do you get the stacks to look like that?

Thanks dudes

They tend to work their way down throughout the day, but I just readjust every now and then. I have a couple other pairs of gas masks that are slimmer and have stiffer material and those stacks tend to stay where I want them. Gravity is going to do its thing, but I think the best best is a long inseam and stiff material.

There's also this imgur post I saw. Dude duct tapes the inside of his jeans to maintain stacks. Pretty damn goofy, but I'm sure it works.

lol that seems ridiculous but on second thought, i have a jacket with elasticated sleeves that stacks super nicely on the arms...and that's basically just an elastic band sewn inside the same way the tape is.

yeah my pants are long but stretchy, and i think short of starching the stacks or something, this structural hack will actually work. besides what is more lunarcore than duct tape and clothes lol. thanks for the suggestion!

lazy outfit with the pants in question. i think they're either too tapered or my calves are too big - so the stacking is pretty necessary to redeem the pants

@BlogWobbles
ok as per outlander's suggestion, i did a (very bad) tape job on one leg, and then moved around a little to see how well the taped stacks would hold up. pretty good! i used lab tape instead of duct tape (only thing around) and it didn't hold very well. ill try again with real duct tape when i get home

in case it's not obvious, the left leg in the picture is the taped one. the migrating stack issue is obvious on the right leg - i end up having my weirdly blocky calf (gf wont let me skip leg day) stick out once the stacks dissipate. but im calling it a success. i only taped along the seams, but im sure if i do the whole leg, it will be even more resistant to stack movement.

I'm with you. I've been meaning to distress some myself lately, but all my projects keep getting pushed back because of work and the holidays.

@VisualMaster
I think duct tape will definitely look better, but it's cool that it worked. Another thing you can do is tuck your pants into your socks when you wear boots. Looks cool and it'll push up the bottom of your pants a little bit higher so it will help with the stacks. I usually have my socks a little over an inch above the top of my boots.

Like the one user said, were getting to a point where most of us that were here a month or 2 ago are finally getting most of our pieces in and starting from the basic "lunarfit" and I think once most of us have our basics for this very specific wardrobe you'll start to see us getting funky weird pieces from milsurp and thrift stores

Actually I think I'm the only one here who went shopping and bought lunar vests
I don't like jackets as much and always liked the look of cargo or combat or space looking vests that are cropped with a med/long ish t-shirt or long sleeve and have that space pirate look

Like from Titan A.E, or Treasure Planet, etc.

Heavy squater here to bro. Why are you cutting? Why would anyone cut? Get huge and hit PRs m8. seems like you have a fashion victim mentality of having to wear tight slim clothing but since you are built that is really not flattering. Go up a size in pants you probably have developed glutes and your ass in those cargos make you look like your are presenting for actual /fa/ggots.

The color scheme on those AF1s is nice but AF1 have been played out since like 2003 m8. The cringiest shit ever is how hard they are pushed on this site. I am convinced it was a forced meme troll that caught on.

@Garbage Can Lid
goofy vests. maybe you can make them work. a long t shirt underneath would look shit. go high waisted pants with a short t shirt. you don't want the vest to layer over the shirt or sweater that will look goofninja rickfag shit. here is some inspo.

@Carnalpleasure
Got any lunar mid-rise sneaker alternatives?
no help there sorry. I would avoid the AF1s also because you are a big guy and they will make you look bigger and shorter since they are big. I would say just really dial in those palladiums. tighten the laces really tighh. something about how you are wearing them with your pants just doesn't look right. might be your passive cucky hand in pocket stance. since you are a bulky guy you need to stand in a powerful stance. you want to convey a message that you could put a beating on someone. that is the key to all menswear.

Cropped vests helps to play with dimensions and feel

I'd like to get more "out there" and "sci fi" pieces instead of just cargo stuff

More Starwars and less Alien for me even though I live gasmasks and boots

It might be a kinda weird question, but...
Could one pull off a Hawaiian shirt+ T-shirt combo in a lunar fit? If yes, then how so?

New_Cliche
New_Cliche

@Playboyize
i suppose a question you should be asking is, why are you attempting this combo? on the surface, i'd say no, that shirt wouldn't make much sense with a lunar style. hawaiian shirts just kind of connote a very different time/sensibility than a stereotypical lunar outfit.

now if you were doing it to purposefully play on the contrast, then maybe...but you'd have to really be very clearly contrasting it with pants/boots that are super lunar and distant from the hawaiian theme. there's always the risk that people won't "get it" and just see the outfit as disjointed.

that being said, i think this shirt would work lol. if it's good enough for the ESA, it's good enough for lunar

girlDog

@New_Cliche
Because I love that space tourist feel, I was thinking that maybe with a standard lunarcore backpack, baggy cargo pants/ nylon pants or shorts and a patch or two on the T-shirt it'll create a nice functional lunar fit for summer, idk tho

Harmless_Venom

hmm now how to pull it off with a hawaiian shirt, specifically? really depends on the pattern and color, and hawaiian shirts can be quite restrained to insanely campy, so it's tough to say without having an image of the shirt. i think the buttons may be problematic...haven't found many reference images from that era with button up shirts. a lot more of them had like this polo shirt looking thing, that's very fitted. if you can find a hawaiian polo it might be easier to adapt. but again, the pattern is important, and tricky. it shouldn't be so bold as to become the focal point of the outfit, but more like an element that adds to the mood, i think?

it's a good challenge to think about...i can definitely see where the influences cross. now i have a thousand tabs open with retro space pictures!

Its kinda more on the techwear side but it looks kinda spacey.
Other than sand there is olive which Im mostly also thinking about as well as black, dark blue and dark grey.

Also what color hoody would you recommend with this if Im wearing black trackpants and white sneaker/boots? Rather go white for more contrast or black to match the pants?

i think it's because we nerds who dabble in this actually have an authentic interest and literacy in this "culture" whereas techwear is mostly...hype? unless you are really into textiles and sewing, i feel like most techwear fans just are enamored with the idea of doing urban taekwondo with errolson hugh and so that's not the strongest foundation for an enduring interest

but then again i probably take "lunarcore" why so seriously ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

there's a hint of self-aware irony in it. but we'll be the ones laughing when we're all forced offworld and we've already gotten a leg up (except prosthetic dude, sorry) on wardrobe over the rest of you!

i think it looks okay

its most spacey feature, to me, is its high collar (from the hood). pic related. but careful, a lot of these product images are propped up and pinned to give the illusion of structure. but when it's on body, it kind of ends up looking floppy.

So I figure if they can play dress up as a cowboy why cant i do the opposite and dress up as an industrial utilitarian citizen from a distant future?

In some cases it looks alot less out of place than a full blown cowboy larp imo.
