Free! Eternal Summer Outfit Appreciation: A Roundtable Discussion
↦ Episode 4 » Rin and Sousuke
Chet: Compared to their kouhai, both Sousuke and Rin dress rather tamely—less bright colors, less bold pairings, and less cutesy and daring in general.
Rin typically wears dark colors with a splash of red, as you can see with his black shirt (love the edgy graphic!) and red sneakers. The necklace is nothing new, but that anklet left me pleasantly surprised!
Mousuguame: I didn’t see the anklet! *swoon* Rin is too cool. I like that it can blend in with his shoe, not too risqué.
Otakubabe: Rin’s style is like Urban Outfitters meets Manic Panic Vampire Red. For Sousuke it’s more Sears meets… Sears. -_-
Chet: //brb crying
Mousuguame: Lol. The first thing I thought when I saw this set was: Sousuke is such a square. He seems to represent the regular guy with simple tastes. (I do so hope this is a jean shirt, it would really make my day!) I like to believe he buys clothes that has style built in, while Rin just has style. Their track suits are a good example of that.
Chet: Mousu, my first impression was that his shirt was denim as well. Sousuke is indeed a product of the 90s. (́一◞౪◟一‵) As for Rin, I agree that he has a certain je ne sais quoi, both with the way he carries and dresses himself, that attracts viewers.
Otakubabe: Now that I think about it, Sousuke’s clothes are so simple you really can’t tell what kind of person he is, which sorta works in his favor if he wants to throw shades. Rin wears his personality in his clothes while Sousuke can kinda blend in no matter where he is. He’s all smiles with Nitori one minute then flip flopped out on Haru the next.
Mousuguame: Very insightful point, Otakubabe. I love Sousuke’s classic hotness. Makoto is just the metro version of him (a la episode 5, o ho!).
TL;DR: Rin is sexy as fuck and Sousuke is a square.
