Depending on what you like, you can walk around the Gastown district. Neighbour, Haven, Roden Grey, Nouvelle Nouvelle, and NiftyDo are all around that area. Inventory used to be as well, but they unfortunately closed.

I've always thought John Mayer looked pretty good in his Visvim

She's a Hilton. Actually it's nice to see that she finally set about building her own little empire instead of leveraging her father's. 

 

As for trying to criticize a person like that in any substantial way... Well, the mice will always squeak.

Thanks for this! I generally head to Gastown and it will be nice to check out some other places.

Was up there on the weekend and tried this (relatively new) place: http://fezcafe.ca/
Lovely food and owners are great as well!

She is very good at self-branding and can leverage an immense amount of money, power and connections.

No one said she was part of Mensa, but she's certainly not an airhead, which was stated.

Strong analytical abilities is a very limited way of measuring intelligence.  I was at Caltech for my doctorate, and then at Harvard for a postdoc.  And from my personal experience, success, even in an academic setting, is as much about the political and diplomatic abilities, and the ambition, of the individual, as much as by the ability to think real good (and hard).

In the end you're just buying clothes, man.  Putting more """thought""" into it doesn't make you a better person than someone who doesn't.

 

i want to avoid turning the argument into whether or not I am a better human being than a$ap rocky, aka whether or not i am a "hater."

 

I'm merely not into rap celebrity fashion culture. I like rap itself and I like clothes but I don't like when the two mixes.

I agree, and it becomes clear quickly when people get in the workplace and have to perform in that environment. You definitely don't have to be a genius to be a success. Look at Sarah Palin.

Clothing and styling have always been inextricably tied to music cultures: punk, pop, rap, etc. Tommy Hilfiger was huge with rap stars in the 90's. I'm really not into the heavy cross branding/marketing going on with rap and fashion but it's really nothing new. 

 

In regards to the idea of what is a "legitimate" interest in fashion vs a false one, that's a fairly silly argument. ASAP or Kanye would be the stepping stones for a whole new group of young people to take their first dips into clothing. For some it will be a passing trend and for others, they may explore the fashion world deeper. 

 

Not attacking you as a "hater', but what specifically bothers you about it? 

post #107875 of 109053
you can definitely see their influence.

I live uptown and whenever my train rolls through harlem (especially on friday/saturday nights) it's a lot of kids wearing fast fashion versions of designer stuff mixed with streetwear. It's pretty cool actually, and a fairly recent development (past couple years).

RE. A$AP Rocky himself, he has definitely learned a lot in a few years.  I remember reading an interview in which he "analyzed" fashion with someone at GQ.com, a while back, and either he was punked, or he just didn't know wtf he was talking about.  I read like a fashion Rorsarch test.  These days, his answers seem much more informed and circumspect.

This makes me wonder what rap you like

It's called naked rap. Burgeoning underground movement. Response to the rap of never-nudes.

Not legitimate vs illegitimate, but "calculated vs. uncalculated." If the owner of a fashion forum suddenly starts repping a label he previously panned, for the rumored reason that the label provided him free clothes, then the sudden turn in judgment is "calculated" rather than due to some fashion epiphany. In this case I hope everyone is allowed to be skeptical. So when a rapper who came up in the age of internet hype and blogs turns on a label like HBA in the same way, but the rapper has much more influence, I hope I'm allowed to doubt whether the decision is political and not purely personal. In fact I will take a wild guess and say perhaps his decision to rep any label is political and maybe economical. hence calculated interest rather than personal.
