The point isn't that they're dressed horribly. The point is that they're being posted because the fit into the bizarre golden-age nostalgia that makes up a fair number of "MC" (for lack of a better word) posters, who are focused on times when "Men were Men and Women were Women" without paying attention to any of the problematic social constructs that structure such a view, or the fact that said golden age didn't really exist. I make things up too, and I don't want to shit on other people's dreams or anything, but there's some really unpleasant shit going down in the HWYLAGTD thread. None of my fantasies involve catching women at inopportune moments with street vents blowing their skirts up around their ears, or bending over to pick things up - and I'm well aware they're rose-colored.
Every time I read the word "gentleman" I feel like I'm going to barf.
Some people just don't and won't ever get it, save your breath and keystrokes.
i feel kind of like an outsider on sf these days...i just don't really like ma-1s
I like them well enough but don't see the reason for all the hype over the Attachment one. To me it really doesn't look that different from ones I've seen before. Then again I don't really understand why people so often flock to one item when so many others have it. You won't encounter these people in daily life but it still seems like it would get pretty boring if a bunch of users posted fits of these.
It's a sleek, nicely cut looking ma-1 that's likely of solid construction given my experience with the brand. For some people that and the placement/execution of the detail makes it ideal.
I have a few ma-1s and even the ones with the more modern cut are kind of puffy... which you could say is the point of an ma-1.
But like a sleek puffer, when done right, it can be a big deal for some. It may tempt some that have never been into ma-1s before and that has a certain cachet.
I recently bought a denim jacket where I was a self-avowed hater of all denim jackets, but this was perfect for me and made me want one. It expanded my horizons in a way and that's something i value.
Some people get excited about the perfect pair of indigo jeans. Shrug. Though I'm sure bandwagonism/groupthink bears some responsibility as well. Plus its Japanese, this attachment ma-1, and Japanese shit is cool[/quote]
