I think a lot of the objections stem from this being one of the more extreme fits you've posted. Drop an accessory or two, swap the shirt for an asymmetrical tee and/or throw on some outerwear - you've had some great outerwear in the fits I've seen - and it wouldn't ruffle so many feathers.
The shoes are fantastic, and the bag looks good. The sum total of everything else is just a little extreme.
Well the objections weren't very abnormal compared to what I usually hear here, and honestly I don't think the outfit is too extreme for my own contexts, but I do appreciate the feedback anyway
Actually I think it's respected, by me at least, because people suppress what they want and conform to what society deems acceptable kind of like people here telling someone that their shoes suck and to get some trickers or whatever and they go right out and buy it. Even if I had his style, I would not put one foot outside dressed like that becuase I know it would immediately make people think I am fag or a trany, however you look at it, takes balls/ovaries to wear that shit
You do realize that most subcultural teenage clothing styles are about shocking the (adult) world at large and showing belonging to a specific group? That uncontrol adopt some sort of whatever thefuckitis (prob glam rock, punk etc) uniform all garbled through the lense of Japanese and anime culture then further distorted by his own limited comprehension of it (he's white, not in japan, probably doesn't speak Japanese etc) and personal taste doesn't make it that exceptional an endeavor.
Unc: The last outfit could benefit from better colour cohesion; I'd switch the khaki strappy tee for a black one to go with the high tops, bag etc. Best would be white tee and short, black jacket IMHO, would def match the rest...
Another alternative would be a hairy mohair sweater, either black or with very wide black and white stripes.
Something like this (just the jumper, not the rest of the outfit)
Pale pants with dark isn't exactly kosher but it can work. If you wanna keep the tank find some white boots or something...
Nice sweater. Your jeans/posture is making you look like you have child bearing hips though. There is a 50% it camera angle/posture so no definite opinion here but otherwise a dif cut of pants would def get rid of that problem.
you do realize that your wardrobe choices are just as unique as theirs, right?
In what sense? Let us suppose that Uncontrol-like style is MORE common then clarksdb/whatever/yawn-style, would it be any less logical that a guy dressed like uncontrol would not care much about feedback from people dressed in that oh-so-rare clarksdb look? I mean in addition to the wild differences in appearance and references/inspirations the clarksdb brigade on sf is very often pontificating about timeless style in a way that would make anyone put them on ignore. I know not everyone who wears clarksdb is a douchebag but many here are deluded into thinking they are 69-ing James Dean into eternal stylishness. Meanwhile most of us age, relate to a society that transforms and change outlooks as we face diff experiences, very often our wardrobe/look changes as well.
so where did all the BoO / APC .... dudes go?
i've compiled measurements of various types of BoO shirts, past-season styles, list of stockists etc. and have been thinking about starting a band 'useful info' thread where things like that can be discussed. but no longer sure about the wisdom of doing that...
