And if I never found sf I'd either still be wearing head to toe PAC sun/zumiez or dress in all jcrew like my roommates.
speaking of sufu, does anyone else find that the slang typing over there is way too prevelant? it drives me crazy. i know this is an insane thing to complain about
I was thinking about this since I read it this morning ...
Aside from the obvious current trendiness and versatility of black in menswear, I wonder if a lot of this has to do with most of us being internet-based enthusiasts and not buying our stuff at physical stores? Without the ability to try stuff on, examine materials and colors in person, color becomes a much bigger risk. Colors need to be coordinated well in order to not look odd. It's impossible to get a real feel for colors and coordinating them over the web. So black and grey become much more appealing choices.
I've thought about this too, and I wonder how much of it has to do with photography. It's much easier to take a good WAYWT fit pick with black and white than it is with color, since the focus is on the silhouette. Colors never show up correctly unless you're outside, in daylight, with a high-end camera. Even those of us with good cameras tend to get home from work after dark.
I only found the forum looking for info on APC jeans, and I was big into trying to look business casual for some reason back then, so I would probably be into some derivation of this menswear thing. But without the ties, i've always hated ties.
In fact, I would probably have spent all my money on suits and my casual wardrobe would look like the MC casual thread.
there was a thread about this ages ago, before my time. probably due for a reboot.
This is me in Fall 2005
not much has changed apparently
