(Apologies for the iPhone pics, dont have a legit camera- grad school money is tight.) Deets on the boots: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
not bad, need better camera/angle/lighting BUTTTT i think the chunky oversized scarf needs to be all the way over your clothes. not half over half under as it looks in the pic, otherwise, a solid fit not a fan of the watch but w/e

But, styleforum SW&D has moved past that over a year ago. Only braidkid (rip) in absentia and chronoaug seem to still be railing against the infrequent "timeless style" debates on a forum populated with guys wearing Ann-D boots, drop-crotch wjk sweats, Julius and Rick O leathers, and who are praised in recent purchases for picking up an obscure Junya-collab blazer or CCP dip-dyed boots, etc. Despite all the asinine commentary, the current active contributers on SW&D WAYWTD have been the most diverse and interesting in the three years that I've lurked on this forum.
I'm probably unlucky then because I check this thread 1-2/week and, quite often I get to see someone bringing up that shit and I really can't stand it anymore. I dunno but, while I do check superfuture much more rarely, whenever I search for something like Nigel Cabourn or engineered garment there they seem to be more open minded about what they like vs what other people like. I just wish this stupid topic could be buried, I wonder what'll happen when heritage gets thrown out of the fashion spotlight and its proponents realize it wasn't any more timeless than goth drape (maybe less cause the later has been going on since the 80s). I'm guessing many will jump ship (and that's fine) and others will soldier on with a clearer sense of what they like about it. What's sad with all this and which might get lost in my posting is that I don't see a problem with liking some pics of James Dean or dudes in raw denim with big cuffs photographed in the 50s. I just think that right now it and the MC equivalent bring out the worst in less discerning minds.

Thanks. Ya the watch is a bit dated. Im trying to find better places to take pics, but my apt. has pretty dim lighting, esp. after dark. Thanks for the tip on the scarf.

Jesus. Fuuma, you might want to consider some real French intellectuals, some of the most creative, passionate, and un-bourgeois thinkers of the century...and how they dressed like what you would probably call a 'plebe'. Or a 'trad'. Or...whatever it is you need to make yourself feel worthwhile. Discerning. I mean, Holy Jesus-self-deluding-Christ, man.

Echoing the PinkPanster love. Everything looks really natural and I'm really digging the hair too.

Discerning.

I think fuuma is being needlessly pretentious, dismissive, and elitist but this is a terrible point.

Not really. There is a definitely a faction of (very nice, well-intentioned) folks here who try and cope with the inescapable narcissism of fashion by adopting this weird kind of soggy semiotics where any kind of prep style is judged elitist, or patriarchal, definitely oppressive in some non-specified way -- while at the same time displaying an obviously elitist and cult-like mentality in way they attempt to construct their own identity -- by drawing a circle around themselves and other internet fashionistas, labeling everyone else a 'plebe'.... It's just inconsistent. And it has no basis in reality. And if you examine it closely, it really just boils down to someone saying, I can tell who you are by how you dress. Which, AFAIK, is an attitude these same very well-intentioned folks would probably balk at.

I find it funny that you hate preppy style. All the syle icons from Steve Mcqueen to George Clooney wear preppy clothes. You don't see these people dressed in man leggings or cargo pants. Should one wrap a swan around his neck like Bjork, in order to please the high fashionistas of style forum?
