post #3301 of 109053
Whilst i somewhat agree i think in most cases the members are just offering their personal feelings on the piece, which is basically what people are asking for. They want opinions from people who they regard as more stylish than themselves so they'll generally heed the advice. In some cases it gets abit stupid but generally there's a wide range of responses and allot of the pieces will get bought anyway.

To me this is a big step backwards as far as fashion is concerned, and it's almost as big a step back as to warrant them start posting in MC (just kidding).

But really, if you're not here to find new, innovative, interesting clothing, what are you here for, to continually add to your list of high street brands that sell slim button downs where you've already written BoO twice? It just seems so counter-intuitive to me.

Well, the pieces that involve the word 'overdesigned' around here are usually leather jackets, and that is completely true. Most of the leather jackets that I've seen on here that people say are overdesigned are usually: a basis of a Dior Homme style pattern + a crazy/not so crazy aniline dyed color + a faux distressing treatment to leave it's DH roots and bring it into the cool guy Rick Owens camp + a few extra shits and bobbles to keep it from looking like a Black Scissors jacket.

Care to provide examples? People here usually wear pretty sedate leather jackets. In theory I'll agree with you that combining all these things is not going to end well.

Americans do casual and streetwear well. "Chic" is some foreign thing.

Surely you'll eventually spot some chic cenobite in NY somewhere...

Jack Purcell's look terrible on most of the people who wear them. You either look like a six year old kid, or a square dad wearing them.

People who complain about hipsters are way, way more annoying than hipsters.

I look like a square six-year-old Dad. Don't you know it's hip to be square. And six.
