A military sweater I said was Dior. :P Hell, 99% of the prized 'hobbyist' looks are just rehashes of other, cheaply available clothing anyway. You can look like a rail worker w/o spending $500. And Lane, the Colombine killers nailed your aesthetic for much less. It's a little dispiriting, seeing the kidz logging-on and being taught to revere the affiliate brands and dropping all their student loan money on these doll-sized ToJs indistinguishable from the Macy's house brand; it's even worse, a few months later, having to endure their sermons on 'quality', watching them become unpaid evangels for high-priced dreck, when all they might really need -- I'm looking at you, here, Lane -- is maybe just a hug and a cup of tea and perhaps a little tip-off that Evil BJ Novak is not a good look for *anyone*. Creativity: yes. Variety: yes. Unreflective brand-whoring: no.
bolded part is funny to me in certain instances its somewhat true. lol, eric and dylan nailed my aesthetic? You know thats quite insulting since all they wore was black pants, shoes, and band shirts with their gun holsters. I think you're simply displaying your ignorance about clothing in general. I really doubt you've actually seen any of the brands you are downplaying up close if you're willing to have such ignorant opinions. I'm also not just talking about my aesthetic here, visit barneys somehow and examine the cuts, the details, feel of the garment for christ sake. Its nothing like your everyday mall stuff at all. You can't accomplish bootleg versions of certain design unless you're part of some really simplistic/bottom of the barrel style. Also, every dime I spend on clothing is through my job. Yes, I work and go to school because its really important to me, and I even end up sacrificing much of a social life because of this. I like how you think you've got me figured out so well. Not to mention ToJ is not my thing because its too classic, and I don't even own any SF approved stuff. I'm considered a SZ nuthugger in these parts for your information. Plus, this is about appreciating design and style/fashion. Seeing fits contained with Hedi-era Dior , Cloak, Schneider, Rick, and etc because they have been crafted for reasons beyond simple functionality. There is a purpose to their design, and they are quite distinguishable. Saying you accomplish looks like this with garbage from the mall is not only ludicrious, but just plain ignorant. I won't say your jealous because judging by your fits you don't really aspire to anything past that, but I will say you're quite ignorant.

As I have posted many times before in the health and body section and in WAYWT I have a diagnosed medical condition called marfans disorder, which effects the forming of connective tissue, which as a side effect obviously impairs how much muscle I can gain. Even with steroids I wouldn't get big. I'm also 17, how fucking big do you want me to be? I've put on 58lb this year so no I don't think I'm wasting my time.

Not sure I feel about the tucked flannel under the leather. Opinions? ToJ A&F MxMJ Wolverine

GN your biggest problem is your stance in pictures. You look very uncomfortable in front of the camera, which is what (in my opinion) makes your fits not look that great. I know it's hard to look at your own pics and compare to others without going to an extreme, but look at the fits that get praise and look at how the photos are composed, the angles, and the stance of those being photographed. This one is a better pic compared to many others but still sort of suffers from what I've been saying.

Saying this all because I get the picture that you don't look as bad as the pics show. Also try not to lean to one side. That's probably your biggest stance problem.

That said, I think the tucked flannel doesn't work, no. I think when worn with streetwear/workwear it just makes one look really conservative and dad-ish. I can only really tuck flannel under a sportcoat.

This was needlessly crass, even for SW&D WAYWT

Thanks. I am very uncomfortable in front of the camera because i find waiting for the self timer on my camera really awkward, especially becuase i'm trying for a balance of "not too stiff" "not too slouchy" "no ILS" etc. (I kind of get why Japanese tourists do the two fingers thing now haha).

U should get wifey to capture u out and about

did lane really just say that he gives up a social life so he has money to buy clothes that he nerds out over and will aid in making him look more anti-social?
post #35320 of 116149
Aeg: ssense model pose. Any less awkward? Also, For the longest time, I couldn't figure out why i naturally lean to one side in my fitpics. Then I learned I have mild scoliosis and a slightly pelvic tilt. I'm in PT for it now.

Lane needs to refer back to that awesome kunk quote about Rick/Ed Hardy GN that actually looks decent though you should look up
post #35322 of 116149
Not quite sure why noobizor is even on this forum as he clearly doesn't know his head from his ass yet keeps waxing poetic like he does.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's still not really natural. Don't know how to tell you to take a picture without thinking you're taking a picture, but that's how you do it. Regardless, I can tell it looks like the fit is mostly fine despite the additional hate you'll get for a picture not looking that great. Crewneck might look better though.

I think a longer tee would like better as well. Second pic is better but still not perfect
post #35325 of 116149
