Working from home today.

Would this qualify for the WAYWT challenge? Not sure if dip dye and a waxed coating count.

Damn, nice home library.

Not really sure how low ties are supposed to drop laf.

For s

 

For starters, unbutton before you're going to sit down!


I love that color though! Also, that fit flatters your body way more than anything else I've seen you post recently.

I would say I don't know why su-fu exists, but I guess its like a prison for all the misguided children.

as others said i don't think abraxis's issue is his body but rather the way he's taking pictures. Regardless he stays active with crossfit (which like, whatever as long as he doesn't hurt himself) and is happy with his body so good for him and everyone who feels good about the way they look even if they don't look "ideal."

i mean there is a difference between people who see clothing as an aspect of a "be as high status as you can be" (not the perfect phrase but still) lifestyle goal vs. people who are into clothing as a hobby (though i think there's shades in between those two polarities).

Think the former sees body type as being of paramount importance because it does make a huge difference on a purely "how you look" level and really fitness is one of those things you don't have a ton of excuses for save for lacking the willpower/being lazy. After all you'll "look the best" (in the eyes of society) by having well-fitting really nice basics on a nice body because after a certain point dressing in fashion shit alienates those around you rather than elevates your status (this, however, is really context dependent and some people have a bit more leeway in dressing "weird").

Then again there are the latter who resent the former because the body acolytes annoying as shit sometimes and being high status isn't as important as being interested in clothing. e.g. I don't think melon wears head to toe geller or benseyed fucks with yhoji because they thinks its going to get them laid or because they'll get dap from the bouncer i think they does it because they really enjoys the clothing. Which is cool for them and frankly, I think that those people make for better WAYWT content.

Of course as I said there are people in between, who are interested in both dressing-as-high-status signifier and dressing-as-hobby I actually like these posters the best because their shit is both "cool" and "wearable" but i digress.

Anyway, sorry fellow RHET-ers, I love you guys but I think you need to back off because this isn't a fight you guys should be having. Most of you brahs are in the former category while most of the dudes in WAYWT are in the latter category and that's totally cool because that's different priorities and it's not helpful to tell them to tell them that they need to bulk up/slim down.

It was one of those yoox treasure finds. It's the Fall 2012 version I believe. I went with a XL.

^^ You're right but at the same time its hilarious how I can't give a suggestion without getting shit for it. Jet boasts about how he lifts this and that and tells people the same thing I do laugh.gif

And no amount of angles and camera tricks are going to change the fact that the jacket simply doesn't flatter him. smile.gif
post #105850 of 116084
yeah but jet just posts about his pullups or whatever, you're actually posting critiques of other peoples' bodies.

and anyway yeah the jacket doesn't fit right but the fit is more the issue than his body. I'm not sure that jacket works with your body type (focus on clothes) vs. you need to lose weight if you're going to wear that jacket (focus on body).

I've spent years accumulating these books all with the goal of taking this one solitary picture. Now that I've successfully completed my mission, excuse me while I sell them all to a used book store for a paltry sum.

Stay tuned for my next WAWYT in 6-7 years featuring my massive collection of porcelain figurines that I will now begin to amass.

So... to achieve WAYWT equilibrium, every good fit must be followed by 2 pages of unrelated squabbling. Worth... I think?
