I hate when people enter threads just to cry about how good they have been, could be, etc. Crying about it wont change that. Its also not the "post pics of girls you like thread", so ter1413 gtfo.
The funny thing is, that this thread attracted the "pervs" from the beginning, yet you act as if it is some phenomenon of the last few pages. When people first became butthurt about these comments, I checked the first pages and lo and behold,
Warning: Spoiler!(Click to show)
and so on. If you want to change that, post good fits or explain why others are bad (again gtfo ter1413) or thumb up what you like. Or you can still start a new thread .
i have posted flicks dooosche!
less talking and moar poasting!
I'm sure we all value the aesthetic value of clothes and that's why we're on this forum in the first place. There is reason to believe that for the aesthetics some of us are going for, it imposes some limitations on the pieces that we can wear due to reasons such as latitude. For example i can't wear a leather where i am because where i live it's hot year round. But i see some people around here doing it even though it's hot as hell. In this case they're choosing to sacrifice comfort for the sake of aesthetics and i guess it's just freedom of choice. I'm sure there are clothes that look good and have both style and function, but they may not suit our aesthetics and that's where the dissonance comes in.
It's a spectrum isn't it? Obviously some things aren't going to be the most comfortable thing we've ever worn, but there's a limit to that sacrifice I think it crosses a line into affectation.
For me style is lost when you're doing it too much for people other than yourself. It seems less real, less personal.
I tend to enjoy it much more when it's real people, and something about the way she's wearing the clothes tells me it's for a photoshoot, not for herself.
Yeah I know, that means that all photoshoots aren't real, yadayada...I actually think that's most of the reason why people like the sartorialist do so well.
If you have issues with this thread, and the direction it's taken over the past month, why don't you educate us about how you think women should dress. Instead of complaining, why not contribute to the thread.
