To be honest, arent you doing the exact same thing as all the things you expect to hear from a preppy wearing person? You are without a doubt an intelligent person so why all this?

What you didn't like the bad guy in Karate Kid or something? Date Rapist....waaa?. The all black wearing thing would be more akin to that. No disrespect (although you need to put down the thesaurus) intended but it's a style like everyone else's here. I don't understand the hate towards it. I am far from preppy but I still incorporate pieces of it in my wardrobe

It comes from insecurity, mainly the fact that they are a male interesting in dressing well. Oh my, will they think im gay if I put this on? Whatever will I do!

He's rightfully pissed that the folks who go on and on about how fitted jeans, oxfords and desert boots are the be-all-end-all of 'style' don't see any other possible way and has already tacitly acknowledged that others can still maintain these 'preppy' or 'workwear' based aesthetics but need to do so with edge and imagination for them to be worthy of his attention and praise (or tolerance?). It's just a shame that most people don't have the intelligence or the brooding self-confidence of a Fuuma or mellowfellow or whoever else is an internet-personality/minor celebrity to be able to construct or properly discuss these looks. To be honest, I blame the all-round lack of culture that many of our posters seem to be experiencing. Growing up in the suburbs being only surrounded by malls and made-in-China really make something seemingly as authentic as workwear or the old-money prep look appealing. It's borrowed nostalgia and while I see it as kinda empty, I don't think it's really worthy of the seething hate that it often gets on the forum. That said, a lot of those guys come on and blather on about how gay they thing Uncontrol looks or that the sleeves on someone's Jil suit is too fucking long and don't realize that they lack the self-awareness to be able to justifiably criticize those looks. They're future MCers, as Fuuma basically pointed out.

English isn't even my first language and I write 99% of what I post very quickly and without re-reading to validate it makes sense and is properly written. If you think what I write is too convoluted you need to pick up the thesaurus. Are you seriously asking me to write in a more mediocre manner? "it's a style" is a meaningless argument. Sure it is but styles are associated with certain things and generate some emotions and associations into their wearers and viewers (let's call this the "expressionism" angle) while also being a combination of textures, volumes and colours (let's call this the "formalism" angle-yeah I'm stealing from fine arts). I find the expressionist angle in preppy styles to go against my values to the point of being ideologically repugnant and the formalist angle to be stagnant, lacking in possibilities and too reliant on colour to the detriment of the other elements.

Lots of action tonight. Im going to interrupt with a noob fit- don't kill me... Ive posted 2 others and havent gotten ripped apart yet, haha. This is no where near what some of you are rocking... but Im trying. I guess its a poor man's take on Synthese's fit a couple pages back. Ha. Constructive crits would be great...
(Apologies for the iPhone pics, dont have a legit camera- grad school money is tight.)

I think the key here is the past tense. I can see how Humperdink would say this is a straw man, as posters like this don't really seem to take too much part in the discussions here anymore--and when they do, they're pretty quickly written off.

thanks to everyone who commented on my fit, yeah the pants probably could use a hem. i have like 6 pairs of pants that need a hem and these are the least offending of them all, too lazy to go to the tailor
