mellowfellow, my personal favorite fit poster, consistently kills it and he does it without rick/yohji/schneider/guidi. I think Ervell is almost as baller/SF-approved as he gets (Besides that boo jacket he has), and imo Ervell's status on this forum is at least partly driven by the quality of his fits.
Who would disagree that mellowfellow has a refined and consistent style? Or I guess "style identity."

Mellow has quite a few baller pieces, and I think you're romanticizing his fits or something just because he has been known to wear a lot of cheaper stuff as well (he was always the "Uniqlo can look good" posterchild). Inverallan, CP, BoO, Ervell, all super SF approved. His fits are amazing, but I don't have any idea why you're calling baller purchases crutches. If you're lumping in Schneider with your category then Ervell most definitely belongs there, and has been hyped since before Schneider made it really big on the forums.

As a newbie, I'll just say that I don't post stuff because I run between maybe 5 outfits total- post burning XXL shirts I haven't had much time to buy much of anything. My posts are what I wear, but after posting 4 times or so, that's it that I have for now.

Actually I just like his fits a lot.

I'm calling baller purchases crutches in response to Brothersport mentioning how critical those things are to wywt and building a style identity. Notice I also mentioned that they need to fit well and be styled at least somewhat not terribly for them to be effective.

I also never mentioned that he doesn't wear SF approved things.. just not heavy into the baller brands (Which are also SF approved a lot of the time).

Again, it's not my category I took that list of brands from Brothersport's post. And imo CP is not on the same price point as guidi and neither is is Ervell in relation to Schneider. I'm not using the concepts of "baller" and "SF-approved/hyped" interchangeably.

My most thumbed up fit ever (>30 or something) was Uniqlo and Clarks. It's possible to cobble together things that are interesting, well-designed, and fit an aesthetic (~*~*~*~personal style~*~*~*~) cheaply, it's just much more challenging.

 

There's a marked SF groupthink, but it's no different than what you find on cycling forums, programming boards, etc...enthusiasts tend to have their predilections and those who vehemently disagree don't tend to stick around. SF at least, is accepting (on the whole) of a more disparate variety than most other places; there's far more variation between say, brad-t and regis than anything you'd find on SZ or SuFu

Did I do something to you in a past life? I'm not XHale. The jackets are different... I'm sorry if I offended at some point
post #69683 of 94438
btw i actually don't think that's xhale. xhale pm'd me looking to buy something awhile ago as "12345678910" or something like that and told me to gmail him instead. we spoke, he said he would buy it, and i didn't hear back from him for days until i asked him what the deal was and he went "o i decided to get something else and forgot to respond."

Pretty funny thing just happened.

 

I had ordered pickup from UPS for returning a package and accidentally gave them the wrong street number when asked for my address. The pick-up guy called me 5 minutes later correcting me, saying I must be wrong because that's not where I live, lol. 

 

Funny when you always have the same guy delivering stuff to you.
