How do your friends dress - Page 11

post #151 of 219
My friends wear mall brands and they are happy with it. They are car hobbyists so they drive $100k+ cars with mods that cost more than a new Honda Accord.

My friends typically wear raw selvedge denim, Vans Authentics and/or Chuck Taylors, and a band tee. We all have similar tastes in music (Boards of Canada, Flying Lotus, Bibio, Aphex Twin, etc) so a lot of them own different copies of the same shirt, but in different colors. It's a little bit amusing.

Years ago in HS, my friends and I gravitated towards eachother with a lot of similar cultural background (similar social class, neighborhoods, school activities, etc) so we all started out looking a lot like eachother. Usual fair was Hollister with a bit of GAP thrown in for a more "traditional" side of it. All steered clear of obnoxious branding either way, so the biggest cardinal sin was the little seagull logo on our button ups.

As we all hit college together, a lot of us parted ways sartorially. Neutrals became the big thing, and a lot of the more bright colors we had embraced in HS disappeared, giving way to black, white, and grey. One went the way of the "classy" hipster, so to speak, with a decent looking blend of H+M with some classic Americana sort of influence. Another embraced a slightly more "geek rock" inspired image. One went a bit more sporty (and I mean sporty by Air Force 1s and tall tees), and my best friend frankly just went to hell (cargo shorts and a white tee with flipflops everywhere, no matter what the season).

I've managed to share my SF-learnings with the last one. He's become a computer geek and will easily throw down 2 grand on Apple products every 6 months, so he's accepted he has no room to criticize me when a new package arrives from BiG. I've tried to get him a bit more concerned about his appearance, and have even let him "test drive" some of my nicer denims (convenience of being about the same build). He tells me he can notice a legitimate difference when he wears my stuff as opposed to the things his Dad will stock his closet with - ex. running to my house and saying he has to be a funeral in an hour and if he can borrow a suit, or this summer I left a pair of PBJs with him to wear in a bit while I broke in a new pair of raws on my internship. But he still can't "bring himself" to pay for the stuff I get.

My wife takes care of herself, and has a lot of things that fit really well. She's not one to buy into any specific brand though, which is nice for our checkbook.

absolutely terrible, but even though I judge them for it I accept them for what they are. Plus, I became their friends because of more than those reasons. Plus, I started shittyly dressed as well... I think I get more flak from people in general more so than most of you because for one I wear black heavily, and also I have a more aggressive style. Sometimes overly feminine and I'm always wearing combat boots. So, I am quite misunderstood by most, and rejected because of it. My friends usually just study my attire, but some I unfortunately shared too much and they bring it up to others.... but the usual is: videogamer look or overly academic type of dude who tries hard at looking presentable and smart. Or the hipster/punkish type attire friends who dress with random shit I dunno where they got from.

My friend kelvin dresses pretty good.

My other boy dresses all grey with mostly geller, apc, cp but he sells the stuff so he knows.

My best friend is always prep.

Girls I know dress cute, noting tacky.

My cousin dresses well for mall brands, no logos, nice fit and does well with the ladies so he's good.

My other boy is a former greaser, good guy.

My peoples definitely aren't into style as much... mostly the faded t-shirt, shorts, flip-flop/beat up sneaker combo. When we do something kinda relatively fancy, a polo/dress shirt and some cheaper jeans. Ex-best friend used to dress really douchey, Affliction shirts/Prada shades/G-Star jeans, etc. but still different from what the rest of the comrades rock. One of my friends dresses kinda feminine hipster-ish, skinny jeans with boot-tuck + scoop necks or tank tops. Another one of my friends is a complete Urban Outfitters hipster lol which is weird because her personality is not hipsterish at all. Honestly I'm kinda a lazy dresser when I'm around the main crew myself... V-neck + APC NS + old ass Alifes/Nikes even though my closet is full of fly shit -_- My brother on the other hand spends like ALL his money on clothes. Kinda addicted. Japanese streetwear mostly... Neighborhood, Visvim and some Prada, Dolce, etc. He also collects outdoor apparel... Patagonia, Arc'teryx, etc. We talk about recent purchases once in a while but our styles are kind of different so not much. As for the second question, I get a lot of flak for my sneaker collection (30+... always was and still am kinda an ISSer TBH) but that's about it.

None of my friends dress particularly well, but this winter i've stepped it up a bit and i think they've noticed. One of them has started to buy more stuff and he's copying my cologne collection. Still dresses very 'Australian young 20 something' though. Plaid hoodie, plain vneck, black skinnies and volleys. Another one wears random mall brand stuff with graphic tees. Although after one drunken night i started blabbing about raw denim and i think i got him interested in buying a pair so who knows... They mostly think i'm nuts for spending so much - My cousin in the US especially. My parents fly to the US each year so sometimes i send stuff sent to her house for my parents to pick up, where of course, they see the receipts. I don't discuss prices with most of my friends, but occasionally they'll comment on how expensive everything looks.

Out of my 3 closest friends, two dress well, with one being a bit more fashion concious (about as I am) while the second cares slighly less but still got into raw denim once I introduced them both to APC and other raw brands. Third one is a lost cause; camo print cargos, AX gear and sweat pants.

Almost every guy in my group dresses differently, as far as girls go they are either Forever21 style or A&F/coach stuff. Its ok and when I do dress nicely they comment on it and a couple of them know I do buy expensive stuff buy numbers are never revealed.
