Clothing, the way people on Styleforum approach it, is just a hobby. Hobbyists tend to have this childlike need to question why everybody else doesn't share their hobby, and view them as inferior for not sharing it. I don't really give a shit what other people wear - they probably have better ways to spend their money, and I'll just look better in comparison.
Lol, agreed.

ur doing it wrong Also, I don't think people here really question why everyone else doesn't share our interest to the extent we do. People on SF don't think that everyone should go out and buy $$$ worth of Jil or something. They just wish that people would dress a little less shitty. Actually as to furniture - some of the MC guys have some pretty baller homes and furniture... people in SW&D don't mostly b/c this side of the forum is generally younger and guys are still moving around a lot and so aren't yet ready to invest in nicer furniture even if they're interested in doing so

If everyone dressed less shitty, we wouldn't look so exceptionally fucking gorgeous. Amiright?

In Bruges was a fantastic movie. For extra fun, watch it while pretending all the characters are actually the people their actors played in Harry Potter, masquerading as muggles (Colin Farrell and Jordan Prentice are two muggles who don't know what they're getting into). SPOILER: The fight between Voldemort and Mad-Eye Moody acquires just layers and layers of wizarding subtext.

Before making the following comment I will draw your attention to the fact that not too long ago we had a reasonably protracted discussion about the relative quality of sountracks from various Final Fantasy games.

Now then.

This is quite simply the geekiest, nerdiest thing ever posted on styleforum.

All, please resume posting stuff about how people should generally dress better.

Last night at the thrift store where I volunteer, the soundtrack to one of the Sonic the Hedgehog games (2, maybe?) came up in the mix of however many bajillion CDs they have in rotation. It was like the part where you beat the game and they play the theme from each one of the levels in sequence. It was pretty awesome.

I don't have a problem with normal people not sharing an interest for clothing but i always find it odd on a hobbyist fashion forum (and not a general honestforum safe type thing but more of an in depth niche fashion/style/clothing forum) that there are always so many people who poo poo the idea of spending money on clothes and try to break other people down for doing so. Like joining a hot rod forum and talking about how building, racing, and spending money on hot rods is a waste of time and the money could be better spent elsewhere. Generally, it comes from people who are either cheap or don't have the money or want to put in the extra time that the other poorer chaps do to make up for not spending much on clothes. edit: some energetic trolls should start joining hot rod forums and convince them to buy rick owens and raf simons. would be low to mild entertainment at least

Read my post again dawg, you're proving my point exactly.

To get this thread back on track: holy shit at those shoes.
