I feel like the thumbs up section adds to the intimidating atmosphere cause it doesn't seem to encourage the discussion of fits as much. I don't mind a nice fit being reqouted or even a bad one given that there are legitimate advice along with it.

Agree. SF isn't always the most welcoming community but unveiled criticisms bring great perspective. I've browsed SF frequently for a little over a year now and the snark in WAYWT has made me question the way I view clothing.

SF is pretty welcoming compared to most other forums. Most messy introductions are the fault of the user (myself included haha).

I think that SW&D has done a great job of carving out its "niche" within a much larger universe of men's fashion blogs/fora/websites.

Part of the things that tautcow shits on it for are what makes it a unique place--the interest in a fairly wide yet particular set of designers and aesthetics (that are generally more upscale) isn't really mirrored anywhere else.

It's groupthinky in the sense that there's a certain set of aesthetic considerations that people here value, but the alternative is wishy washy "everything is subjective!" sort of reasoning which I hate even more.

Then again, I wish people were more honest about the fact that nobody here really wants to help a n00b learn the basics and that there are other places that would be better for them in a "here is information/advice you can use in a distilled format" sort of way (tone/snarkiness of responses notwithstanding).

unfortunately, I have some big black stains on my red leather, is there anything I could do to fix this? Could bringing it to a leather expert serve me well?

This is true, and I agree the more involved critiques are helpful, but at the same time the thumbs up area gives more people the chance to say "I like that" without a ton of photo requote-ing. I like the tweet-size space too, so if you want to make a point you have to do it as concisely and creatively as possible. plus, without the thumbs up field we wouldn't have tcwalter's fine, fine commentary.

If you start off knowing nothing at all about the subject it is definitely intimidating - there is a vocabulary you have to possess to participate - but that's no different than any other forum. Once that hurdle is cleared, and provided you post in the proper place (i.e don't ask about MMM in the Geller thread or Vans in the baller sneaks thread) people are on the whole happy to offer advice, knowledge, and criticism.

 

I will echo Milano's complaint that the thumbs system does make WAYWT a bit harder to follow and has stymied discussion significantly. As is the discussion of fits feels less substantial than it has been in the past.

Good question -- I've been wondering this too.

 

Perhaps he has gone into hiding and will re-emerge in head-to-toe Yohji after a few months...

i'm not a fan of the thumbs up/thumbs down system at all. also again, where's that tagut post?

Back on the Etsy tangent, I would love to see a company use Everlane's biz model for minimalist/architectural/gothy stuff. Very few mid level designers are rocking that aesthetic (Kai Aakmann? pshhh), and it's really a shame.

Gosh if I had some VC I'd start that shit right now

Investors usually like to see an investment horizon longer than 18 months... tongue.gif

Not a big enough customer base for weird gothninja basics for that model. I would be also be willing to assume that from the target demographic, a good portion wouldn't deign to buy non-brand name "visionless" basics.
post #58155 of 109053
^^ lols. But seriously, minimalism has been around a while, and it's marketable in a way that appeals beyond the uber niche gothy crowd.

Now that fashion at the middling tier is still all over #menswear and workwear, I'd be curious to see how much really strict structured "darker" clothing could catch on
