It was a rant, not an argument. I fully appreciate that many disagree here.

No, I get it. We all get tired of things in our closet at some point. I still don't like that critique - it irks me wink.gif As you've probably noticed, I'm more interested in things that look good and boring, than things that look innovative and edgy without looking that great. I do appreciate that people get bored with the former and like to see edgy outfits in the thread. It's natural.

OK but are clean sneakers and classic leather jackets really a trend? I don't see how you can become fatigued by that. I mean I guess if your only source of fashion is the WAYWT thread ...

Yeah I'm talking about WAYWT, not the real world, which WAYWT is not.

So basically you're complaining that on a fashion forum of (assumedly) similarly minded individuals, there are too many people who are adapting similar ideas and pieces. Just keep scrolling ...

DJ Craze is amazing. Probably one of the most fun nights I've had in Korea.

Craze is sick, probably one of the top 5 scratch DJs in the world.  If you're into that, George Lenton and Hudson Mohawke are similar - they're all a little too weird to really hit mainstream, but really talented & fun to see.  Awesome suit.

I'm in the industry but had no idea he was here; best surprised I've ever had. Walking into Answer on a Thursday night to 3 hours of intense scratch.

Thanks for the comments on Sunday's fit. I won't make a habit of the action shots - at my age my knees won't take it wink.gif

Like gdl - I've seen the jean cycle come and go. I think we're definitely heading for more washes and I wouldn't be surprised to see wider legs and higher rises coming back. Personally I don't have a problem with washed out jeans, so long as they look genuinely washed out - strong acid/snow wash jeans will remain on my list of 'fashion shouldn't have even gone there once'...
