just wear them for a bit then post pics once you understand what to wear them with. I'm sure you can tell this doesn't look good. I'm thinking some type of loose as fuck wifebeater, colourblocked would be nice, and tapered grey or white jeans but i dunno if that would work in practise.

nah, leather can definitey work with sweats, I've seen it looks absolutely rad before.

but, jacket needs to fit looser and dare I say be longer? tank should also be looser and longer. sweats should have a little more taper.

Spring has officially sprung in Nebraska, busting out the thin clothes.

No, they aren't. I would say that most of them are in their 30s or 40s and a good many are much older. There are a few younger posters, but Liam_O is an oddity and no-one thinks he dresses well over in MC. He seems to think he's being true to himself and I guess anyone might feel like that the first time they are subjected to concerted criticism.

 

Anyway, as I said on that thread, the whole argument was stupid.  There's no way you can claim that an entire way of dressing is fundamentally better or worse (or more 'manly', FFS!) than another. It's all about that any fit works in the context in which it seeks to be judged, and that's influenced by a whole lot of really superficial or actually entirely irrelevant things (e.g. if a particular brand is mentioned then people will like it regardless of how it looks, or in the latter case, how well people know the person posting). People in both MC and SW&D are pretty forgiving of some entirely unremarkable fits if they are either brand-heavy or being worn by people who are liked... 

 

At the other end, however, there are a very small percentage of people in both subforums who actually dress consistently outstandingly, and I think most people in either place would have no trouble agreeing who those are (Parker being the clearest SW&D example of cross-forum consensus, but perhaps more surprisingly for those who think that MC posters wouldn't get SW&D I am guessing that none of the decent MCers would fail to see that Ivwri has the same kind of successful dedication to Yohji Yamamoto as SpooPoker has to Tom Ford). And personally, my favourite posters in MC tend to the more dandyish end of the spectrum and get plenty of love over here - Barims, being a prime example, who doesn't post enough these days. 

 

For me though, the WAYWRN threads are not the most interesting things on these forums. It's the wealth of specialist knowledge on both sides, whether it be about handmade shoes or obscure Japanese labels. That's what makes this place worth coming back to.

Not Purcells - those shoes hurt! 

 

When you say "sneaker/athletic shoe,"  I'm going to assume that you're including running shoes and trainers.  If you want the absolute best comfort for lots of walking, you should go to a specialty running store.  Any specialty athletic footwear store worth the name will be able to fit you for shoes, and find the best pair for you.  There's no absolute "most comfortable" athletic shoe - it's a subjective thing that depends on the shape of your foot and the way you walk.  A good running store will put you on a treadmill, take a video of your gait, and bring you the best pair of shoes for your foot shape and instep.  The shoes won't be pretty if you're pairing them with your typical TOJ or SNS, but they'll be comfortable.

reedo what happened to you getting frees? Or get some bucks and keep your American Boy steeze going

GN what size are those shoes. Sell them to me locally for cheap or at least let me have them for a few weeks and beat them up and then give them back to you biggrin.gif

Even people that know what they're doing often end up looking ridiculous in dunks. Works with sweatpants though.

mpc60 goes so freaking hard and it's because everything about him comes together to work with that. like his body size/shape, his buzzed hair, and of course the enviroment in his photos always seems to help. He has a great sense of proportion and context, which GN absolutely lacks. (by context I don't mean environment, I mean context of the pieces)

GN just looks like a goomba in the bad kind of white trash clothes with some freaky looking shoes. like wal*mart casual gone wrong. And I'm not saying your sweats have to be expensive to look good or work with it, you just had to find the right ones and wear them the right way, which takes a little more thought.
