Have you ever seen his goth-ninja fits?

im also not a fan of the kind of incestual relationship between some of the fashion blogs/brands and i think his stuff represents that. hard to remain objective when you're selling shit..
+1 million. great post. looks like that college education is paying off ben.

christ what are you smoking??!?
simple answer, yes, putting on a pair of jeans that has absolutely no color cohesion with anything else you are wearing is more natural and less contrived/costumey than a person that color matches every single piece of their outfit and stuffs newspapers into their backpack.

i think hyrcollective/inventory is a pretty huge joke

half the shit they hype is stuff produced by friends of the writers (hello 3sixteen) or stuff they're literally trying to sell

objectivity is a cornerstone of journalism which pretty much all these shitty blogs lack.

also copy editing...

Funny how all the people who think kixslf looks more "natural" (whatever that means) lean toward workwear/Americana themselves, while the people who think Socal looks more "natural" also adhere to various high-end designer aesthetics. And by funny, I mean completely unsurprising. I'm starting to see why this forum is so fun to troll.

thank you I'm not saying kix looks bad, it just seems like he puts too much effort into constructing his fits and more often than not, makes the fit less appealing.

i own a lot of workwear clothing and i don't think kixself has ever looked good. he's just another streetwear/skater kid who has realized you have to stop wearing brightly colored sneakers and hoodies in your 20s and has hopped into the workwear band wagon.

also he's a good example of how great photography is 99.99% of a fit pic.

For crying out loud, they both look great (Socal's swag, kix's attention to detail). Or they both look like shit (Socal's gheyness, kix's contrivedness/baggy fit).


Man, every time i see that otter picture i think the reason he blurred out his kids' faces is not to protect their identities, but to not let us see that they're crying with pain cos daddy is squeezing their hands' tight so someone on the forum might compliment him.

no hate.
post #2052 of 117666
aqhong, I compeltely agree with you. THUS, we must create two areas where each camp can thrive on their own.


Flamboyant Mens Wear

And

Contemporary Men's Wear

its all about creating an illusion

i have an acquaintance who after bulking up looked literally like a fuckin square..he was nearly 200 lbs

solution: i got him down to 168lbs (7% bf) , and concentrated on keeping his waist,especially his hips very lean, as this created an illusion of a somewhat aesthetically pleasing physique

its all about acquiring a desirable shoulder/chest/waist/hips/thigh/calves ratio

God. I used to kinda like you, Kent, and thought the pileon was an overreaction, but you're such an idiot now. Just shut up for a while.

i imagine that kixself is the type of dude who goes to clothing stores and tries to impress the SAs/show how much more he knows about the type of shit they sell ("uh, I think this is actually selvage denim") while socal just hangs out and smokes weed w/ you outside your shop
