I'm thinking of something such as Fuuma's footwear collection, which isn't enormous for someone who's been into fashion for so long. Yet you see it, and everything seems to have its place. There's nothing excessive about it. These gigantic, box-fresh wardrobes bankrolled by some guy's sweet gig in finance usually lack that quality.

This was well put

Forward needs to stop using that model with the ridiculous tattoos and gauge piercings. Makes shopping unpleasant.

Corpus was underrated.

Bret Easton Ellis is annoying as fuck when it comes to that... from glamorama: 'the guy was wearing a BOO suit and sitting outside talking to blah blah blah, then so and so in an armani suit came blah blah blah'

I bought a thing that I was excited about, and It arrived today and it was too big and there is no more of it in other sizes. I hate that.

i always thought corpus was overrated

Shout outs to sipang et. al. for making those image-heavy, center-aligned posts. They take a lot of time and energy to make.

Also, was there ever a "recent streetwear looks" thread? Not the waywn but just one with random recent random looks like there is in the MC forum. It's nice for inspiration, making wisecracks, etc.

That is supposed to mean: I'm interested in authors who write fiction, use a narrative that employs fashion as a salient moteif or trope within said narrative, and preferably do not do it the way BEE has and does whereby the only existent fashion elements are the names of various esigners referenced.

thanks, that looks legit, but I'm after fiction!

That whole brand-names-as-character-shorthand-oh-this-crazy-modern-life grew out of 80's minimalism; it wasn't directly related to fashion, but my guess is you'd find more in the lesser imitators of that period....it's hard to remember anyone specifically because the work was so....forgettable.

@habitant: sweet. yeah, I love Corpus pants I've found, though I'm late to the party.
