Yay, another Thom Browne circle jerk.
I don't think some of you guys get it; it's not so much that people here are seething with hatred for the guy; like I said, it's fine that the guy is doing his own thing, though it doesn't do anything for me. Some people like it; some people think it looks silly in comparison with the traditional and generally accepted guidelines of what a tailored fit should approach, and there's nothing wrong with arriving at either opinion and expressing it.
What is getting very annoying is the constant pushiness from some people who have to keep insisting that anyone who doesn't go nuts over the guy's designs is some kind of backward, boring tool who needs to be trolled until he "comes around." I'm no industry expert, but I've seen a lot of examples of men's clothing and of Thom Browne's clothing and his look. In my case, I'm a 20-something male who enjoys mixing fashion forward elements with traditional dress clothing, i.e. Browne's target demographic. Even then, I've still made my observations and come to the informed conclusion that I dislike his styling and cuts, and prefer a more classic silhouette. I don't see how that makes me (and I'm using myself as a representative of the people who here don't care for Browne's designs) some kind of uptight caricature of a 60 year old AA Trad poster, nor do I see any good case for an argument that is does being made; that just means my taste skews elsewhere. Are all the snide jabs really necessary?
Maybe I've been watching too much South Park lately, but it seems like Thom Browne suits are the hybrid cars of this forum; everytime people start promoting them, a massive cloud of smug forms overhead.
For the record, I also think that rock star fashion basically operates in its own little world without any of the practical bounds that would influence how a person would dress to fit in everyday life. I think it's for that reason that the majority of time people try to emulate rock star dress in their daily lives, they tend to look out of place and come off as posers.
