One thing I noticed reading the old WAYWT is how although neo's style has remained pretty constant, his SF-approval has dramatically changed.
Not really. He varies from having really nice outfits, posting pics of his karate uniform paired with laceups and a blazer, or wearing some of the most hideous shoes and other terribly mismatched outfits. He can have good looks he puts together but he used to be wildly inconsistent. SF approval is a myth. If you dress yourself well and are a decent enough poster people won't give your fits shit. If you dress kinda poorly but don't realize it, and then get defensive, bad things will happen (neo used to do this)
I'm trying to up my blazer game and sniped these two off of ebay for cheap. Marc Jacobs John Varvatos Both are from mainlines, not the respective brands' derivatives (i.e. Marc by Jacobs by MJ by Marc Jacobs by...)
I'm envisioning a white T, slim denim, and either a pair of Varvatos boots or Margiela shoes. We'll see once it arrives. With the addition of the Marc Jacobs blazer, I have black, grey and navy jackets down so I figured I'd try something a little flashier. If it doesn't work, it only ran me $100 so it wouldn't be a big loss.
I agree that the comment would be rude if he was informed that they were orthopedic shoes. I had no idea what they were either, and am frankly not convinced that they are. I also find it strange to post your new orthopedic shoes in the recent purchases thread. I would've kept that private, but hey, I guess they were recently purchased...
