"Low Level Character"
While you could try this basic outfit with any scoop neck tee I would worry that it would not have a drapey, exaggerated look and not really appear "gothninja" at all. The easiest place to skimp on spending in this outfit is the jeans. Any skinny black jeans will work with some decent boots and a drapey top.

parts 1 & 2 are even funnier

but despite using d&d archetypes to describe sub-aesthetics in gothninja/whatever you want to call it, it's really not a terrible introduction to the style..

do you guys use shoe trees in all your shoes? or just in ones that are more MC-ish?

in other words

should i use shoe trees in these F+B boots?
post #76851 of 100296
I'll use them on occasion in my non MC-ish shoes, but not religiously
post #76852 of 100296
No trees in your FB boots
post #76853 of 100296
I should probably get some shoe trees for my dress shoes.

but I probably wont.

There seem to be a lot of "why are these people dressed in such unflattering clothes" comments in this thread, and that's completely missing the point.

The unspoken MFA assumption about the clothes we choose to wear is that they look "good" and they will make us look "good", and that generally clothing ought to serve those two purposes.

But fashion exists on a spectrum between pragmatic ("I want clothes that will make people think highly of me") and artistic ("I want clothes that are interesting"). Not everyone is interested in wearing clothes that look "good" and will make them look "good". Some people are more interested in wearing clothes that are interesting.

Let's make an analogy to music.

People who wear distressed boot-cut jeans and Affliction shirts are like Katy Perry or Ke$ha - lacking any artistic merit, but massively popular and blending in to the cultural background. Most people don't notice (or choose to overlook) how shitty it is.

The MFA circlejerk style is like Mumford and Sons or the White Stripes - it's artistically accomplished, aesthetically pleasing, but also quite safe. People may disagree with your particular choices, but nobody's going to think you're an idiot.

The looks linked are like Nicolas Collins - 99% of people off the street will say, "What the fuck is this bullshit?" and walk away. The line between "crap" and "beautiful" isn't clear. We're not sure whether we're supposed to like it or not. That tension is incredibly interesting to some people.

Personally, I fall squarely into the MFA circlejerk style - just as I mostly listen to music that isn't complete crap but also isn't pushing the envelope too far. I enjoy the experience of wearing clothes that look "good", and of being perceived by others as looking "good".

But I understand why some people would put greater value on looking "interesting".

Edit: Aw, shucks, y'all are kind with this Comment of the Week shit. Glad it was helpful.

I try to keep trees in my f+b. Not keen on the creases they develop, unlike those of guidi,CCP,ect.

Eh, I'm not sure, it just feels like an example of blind leading the blind. MFA isn't the audience for that kind of styling and it doesn't seem like many people there, if anyone, has actual experience with gothninja brands. There's no way to say this without coming off elitist but I don't think gothninja is the kind of aesthetic you can half-ass, especially with lame analogies. I don't think the exposure comes off positively for the aesthetic, especially when so many people defending it aren't actually people who wear that kind of style. It ventures a bit too much into the "overthinking clothing" territory. It seems like MFA just likes to follow gothninja styling because it's trending and people enjoy sharing their newfound knowledge of 'fashion' and educating others (to be fair, we've all been guilty of this), not because people actually want to dress in that manner.

There's a couple people at MFA who do gothninja, but there does seem to be a large amount of "hypetrain" following, where MFA finds out about something "new" and just go crazy over it; see CPs, ToJ, Chore Coats, etc.
