Code:
My wardrobe has everything from Rick Owens to Tricker's and Nigel Cabourn to Canali and Drakes. The variety makes me happy, I don't think a wardrobe needs a theme--it naturally evolves into an expression of one's personal likes and dislikes.

One of my biggest non-kop regrets ever was a Giorigo Brato leather. It looked and fit absolutely perfect.. Funny too as it was the single only Brato leather I have even ever remotely thought looked even decent.

Was unemployed at the time the time and felt like $1200 was a bit much to be spending... Really should have just bought it.

true flyness, when the "you" comes out despite wearing a variety of things and not looking like a mannequin mimic

love changing the game and shows personality to boot, used to know some steezy ass mofuckers in LA who could make anything look good

Not sure why the part about personality is true. I don't think having a diverse wardrobe is a really strong indicator of your overall personality. I'd say there are much stronger indicators of a persons personality, if anything it may reflect an openess and cultivation of fashion aesthetic but that's about it

I do agree that if your personality shines through no matter what you wear that is fantastic thing!

It's great until that one brand unexpectedly changes their look for the worse. Hope to fuck this never happens.

For example, Attachment's SS13 collection is a strong departure from their previous style. Because of this I don't see myself buying many pieces from this season's collection. Now if I wore exclusively 100% Attachment outfits, I imagine I'd feel pretty lost at this point. But I have 4 different labels I've been buying from lately. So while this is disappointing news, I have other labels I'm already invested in that I can rely on to fill the gap.

Also, buying from more than one label helps keep you honest. When you only buy from one label it's very easy to fall into the trap of believing your acing the MMM, Yohji, junhashimoto, or whatever look. This can lead to an oddly stale and/or mechanical look since you never really challenge yourself stylistically and instead fall into a rut of relying on the brand to supply you with style.

Agree so much! I mean for example I love yohji but I wouldn't want to buy his lines exclusively. Plus I think it's more fun to get a variety and get creative about how to combine different labels smile.gif

I don't think much about it really. I ask myself am I going to keep wearing this for the foreseeable future and if so I buy it, Margiela just seems to fit me, maybe I was just lucky or I am an idiot that has romanticized his own style either way I enjoy wearing it and that is what is important to me. I seldom copy what I see from Margiela usually its just how I want to wear it. I am oblivious to all of these rules and wanting creativeness or personality, that could be a reason why I never get bored with my stuff I guess

I think it's pretty obvious we're talking about personality in the stylistic sense here.

Haha, yeah, Attachment SS13 is ... interesting to say the least. My favourite brand KiryuyriK had a bad SS13 showing as well. Actually, there's very few SS13 collections I was impressed with, and not just in Japan, but pretty much everywhere. That sentiment seems to be common.
