White Belt - Page 2

post #16 of 41
Yeah, irritating scene kid belt. That sort of thing just screams "I have several online journals and hundreds, if not thousands of friends on MySpace" to me.

I have a white belt by Valentino Garavani. I wear it sometimes with an all black ensemble, and a Verri Uomo shirt with a distressed brown tweed Junya Watanabe trench coat.

Smells like teen spirit to me. Okay in a crowd of similarly-dressed individuals, but I think it would lack the necessary dignity for staggering home at 4:30 am.

You would have received less hostile responses in the streetwear forum. Patrick06790: In what should one be attired for such an occasion?

It was a streetwear look a year or two ago. It might have played out. I don't know. I saw more women do it than men. I think the idea is to be sure you don't wear them with white shoes.

Dior Homme really pushed the look a few seasons ago - with tight distressed black jeans and a black blazer. Hightops to match. Either very scenester circa 2001-2002 or very New Wave circa 1983. Take your pick.

Kent - It's been a long time since I found it necessary to stagger home in the wee hours, but I always preferred whatever I wore to the office the previous day. That way I could go straight back to work and hope nobody noticed.

Ha. That's a fine white belt, in my opinion. As has been said, it's a rocker, scenester look, and takes some panache to pull off - you don't want to look like the touring bassist for Taking Back Sunday. Easier than tie-as-belt, though. The prep whale belt is definitely more difficult, though. That's so far gone, I'm not sure it can be done ironically. "Look Muffy, a belt for us." Quick Urban Outfitters rant: I stopped by the UO in Georgetwon last week. Mob scene. And they have some alright stuff. Just makes me angry. Seal Kay, Wrangler, Fred Perry, Duffer - this goes back to the exclusivity as currency argument hashed out in streetwear (or music?) awhile back. Essentially, when people put some effort in (like almost everyone on this forum), it's frustrating when someone just hunts it down, packages it nicely, and hands it to the credit card waving masses. On the other hand, I'd like that job. To fuel my anger, I saw this Duffer sweatshirt on sale. Desc includes this gem "From the same people who brought you the eponymous Duffer toggle coat" I assume they mean "duffel" coat??? WHO WRITES FOR THESE PEOPLE?

White belts on men are a sin against God. Pink belts I won't even address.

Then I assume you are anti-karate?

Obviously the only way to become a karate master without offending God is to be such a badass that you skip the white belt rank altogether.

We're discussing fashion, not athletics.

The UO model you linked to is remarkably punchable.

So is spending $1000 on a suit while 11 million people face starvation in Ethiopia. We're a group of selfish, elitist bastards. And we sure as hell don't want to hear your sartorial dogma.
