If they were wearing straight EG well, you wouldn't have anything to complain about.

They're wearing Jcrew and Gap and AE seconds and feeling "oh-so-crispy" or whatever the fuck the kids say these days.

i hate that that sounds elitist - but if you've seen WAYWT you'll understand i'm not saying this with any iota of ego or entitlement. It just has to fucking stop.

Thanks. I only knew of it from my brief stint at looking at MC when I first started so I always associated it with business.

I agree. I don't know, I like to tell myself that I don't care about what other people wear, but with any hobby if you get invested into it enough, I think slight elitism and judgment is inescapable.

Well, I wore BR because that's all I knew about, not because I chose it over EG, Alden, Cabourn, etc. I can't imagine what else I could possibly wear (that currently exists) when I'm older, as opposed to what I currently wear. Or. that I'd decide that Cabourn 'just isn't me' anymore.

I know my wardrobe is wear as hell, but I still think i can recognize when half of these guys look like fools. or maybe I'm 100% off base. I don't actually care.

this is a perfect example

sorry bro but you look terrible.


You know what ? As much as the #menswear schtick irritates the hell out of me, I dig this (gotta chop off the feet though), there are way more terrible # shit out there. Yes it's contrived, but so is 90% of the fashun stuff, which is ok btw. Visualize that fit into through a different lens (TheSoloist hat+Junya padded jacket etc...), it's fine.

Go ahead guys, call me on it. smile.gif

What are you talking about? He looks good...

WHere's the photo with the 3 sportscoats layered on top of each other? I want to try that look...

don't hate the du posted above. But those shoes were not a smart choice with the rest of the outfit. Could live without the huge glasses and the yellow scarf but it doesn't bother me too much.

I think a lot of it is the hat. Almost no one looks good with a hat imo.
