You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense.

Everyone should download the album Summertime by The Drums. Reeeeally good. First album I've actually paid for in a long time. *Fashion related because they were mentioned by Slimane in his recent interview.

tried listening to the mike snow album.

Felt like the production (which is pretty excellent) props up pretty average, albeit catchy songs. The bass sound on "silvia" is very nice. And yeah, the electronics and production throughout is amazing which makes it very listenable. Just once you get past the frills it doesn't seem like there's all that much there.

I don't think wagthesam's recent outfits look so much awkward as they do bland. I understand he's still trying to find his style and hone in on proper fit. But it seems like his fits are made up of SF-approved items. That wouldn't be so much a problem if he did something (really, anything) to add some of his own personality to these fits.

I think that's my problem with the SF uniform. It isn't made up of crappy items. It's just we see it again and again without any of the person's "voice" thrown in the mix. I know I always call back upon him, but if you look at someone like JKISSI's outfits, you'll see how he avoids this pratfall with every outfit. Even though he's often wearing Clarks and button-downs, he'll throw a couple of small tweaks into the formula. That might mean a sleeve roll, pocket square, or boot tuck. Whatever it is, it helps keep him and others who do this from looking like something off the Dress By the Internet assembly line.

I don't think this is a problem with SF uniform, but uniforms in general. I feel like a lot of guys here figure that items x + y + z will make a good outfit. First there were the guys saying that it was BoO and desert boots, and of course now there's backlash against that. The problem obviously isn't with those items, because there are guys who make them look really nice. There's a lot of talk here about certain categories of "looks." There's workwear guys, gothninja guys, MC guys, streetwear guys, and so on. It's not just SF uniform; we seem to turn everything here into a uniform. The thing is, if you take any one of these categories and try to make it a uniform, it will look poor. It doesn't matter if you're going for a "normal guy" look or anything else. Trying to turn it into a formula limits creativity and gives people bad ideas of what looks good and what's acceptable. Guys like JKISSI look good, I think, because they don't try to fit their style into any type of uniform or category. They just wear clothes that work for them.

JKISSI is in the category of "tall black guys with slim clothing always look good"

I guess I should have mentioned that being attractive and in shape goes a long way.
