Same thing with MC WAYWRN. It's way better than whatever GQ/Esquire do. So much better, actually, that the GQ/Esquire advice in general often seems misleading on purpose. I see no reason why SW&D should be any different.

Are you f@ing kidding me ? You insult people left and right, say that they look like 5 year-olds or homeless people, try to push their buttons to make yourself feel good - and that's a civilized discussion? I call that being a douche. And then when everyone retorts, he pretends he's just trying to understand. wtf. Dude's gotta work on his attitude and show a little respect if he wants anyone to engage in a normal conversation with him (something I doubt).

First of all, every idiot and his dog is on my case no matter what I say. I like an outfit, people get pissed, I dislike one, people get pissed too. Huh?
Then, you're the one to talk about being a dick... If people get insulted over every little internet comment, they shouldn't be on a forum. I'd understand if people got pissed over my Target remarks or the 5-year old one (??? I didn't even say he dressed like one ???), but every point I've been trying to make, whether correct or not, has been met with snark and constant personal attacks on me, the way I dress, or a number of words arranged at will taken from random posts in several unrelated threads. I wouldn't say anything here that I wouldn't say to people's faces. And yes, I'm somewhat a dick in real life, although (I think) quite a lovable one. A few members, on the other hand, would have never said what they said to my face.

Because in a thread like this, people would only quote them. Repeatedly.

Cross-posted from the Yohji thread?

For example, I read a bit of the Yohji thread and I think I understand why people are obsessing with it. It's ridden with historical and cultural references to traditional Japanese way of life and dressing. I can clearly see that and I can respectfully disagree with that style. I still think it looks alien on the streets of New York, but I won't say it's baseless.

Yes, my clothes do reflect a set of conscious biases, and yes, I can articulate reasons for these biases. For one thing, I have very short arms, and I find long-sleeve anything draws attention to this fact. A solid-color long-sleeve top will make my entire top part look extremely blocky, since the sleeves of my shirt are so close to being flush with the hemline. I get many of my t-shirts shortened simply because they're apparently made for much taller people (American Apparel exacerbated this trend,) but also to mitigate the short-arms effect. I'll admit that I've shortened some shirts too much.
The 5EPs are too tight, I admit— an unfortunate result of a warm wash I gave them after accidentally sitting in a drunk fucktard's piss. I'm hoping a cold wash and a day of wearing them damp sometime this summer will help loosen them up. Those old washed Nudies I can't get within two inches of buttoning these days. Just as well, they've been through the washing machine so many times they started looking like stonewashed dad jeans under blacklight. I bought some cheap mid-blue straight leg Buffalo jeans to wear this summer until I can get a permanent solution in place (I have a huge store of 'summer color' t-shirts that I've been unable to wear with the noticeably greencast 5EPs and Nudies.)
Also, I moved into a second-story apartment about six months ago, and I seriously think just the act of walking up and down the flight of stairs is making my butt and thighs even bigger than they were before. This makes the shrinking jeans phenomenon even more problematic.
In clothing, form follows function- social function- and my only social functions these days are going out to bars and playing pool. So naturally t-shirts are the most functional and comfortable for this purpose. In the winter, I'll throw a hoodie over it and take it off once I get inside. V-necks help shorten my comparatively long torso.
Keep in mind I'm 5'8.5" and 190-something pounds. Drapey, experimental silhouettes would end up looking sloppy on me. I keep everything fitted by design, although I'll cop to some errors in judgement (overhemming shirts, shrinking jeans, etc.)

The only way you make you living is by playing pool?

I don't know what part of NYC you operate in... but Yohji disciples are on ever corner except Wall street and Times Square

laugh.gif Dude, those are old Asian men wearing their regular, fairly-priced old men clothes. That's like saying, I'm always seeing these surly goth kids at the mall, and with them, it's *all Rick, all the time*.

Maybe, I don't live in NY, I only visit. There's definitely not a lot of them in LA.
