Where is that coming from exactly? My critiques in MC WAYWRN? First of all, I try not to insult the persons with references to how clean their place is or whether they look like a child, woman or a bum. I don't hesitate to call a tie ugly or letting people know that their suit doesn't fit and why. Don't really see how that's telling them they look like shit but whatever.

Secondly, and most importantly, I only critique things that I understand and have learned enough about to be (a) informed, and (b) helpful. I don't go trolling the bodybuilding threads or the cars threads insulting people about how they look or what they drive. Learn first, teach second. Horse, carriage, you know....

Anduru: No offense meant, but you look kinda dumpy in your pic. Go to the gym and bulk up while you salivate over designer fashionz. It'll give you an excuse to throw away your 65 H&M shirts and start fresh.

acecow: I'm going to explain this clearly: SW&D judges things on a different aesthetic criteria that you are used to. It has a particular aesthetic niche within fashion (social) media, and that's what makes it unique. People gather here because they appreciate that set of aesthetic ideas, and wish to discuss them. As such, other posters, who understand this aesthetic criteria comment on these fits, either positively or negatively. For example, brad-t may come off as harsh, but people are cool with it because he gets it. He knows what he's talking about, and as such, his perspective is valued.

You, however, have demonstrated that you do not understand the aesthetic criteria, and so your comments, both positive and negative, are not useful or wanted. You do not get it, and as such, your comments are worthless. If you want to learn about what these vague aesthetic criteria are, feel free to ask 'why is this receiving such praise?" rather than "why is this receiving praise, you look like a homeless person," as nobody feels like the latter part is relevant.

You are not helping anybody with comments like that, only pissing people off.

That chick you're with in front of the Christmas tree has a hot body though.

EDIT: gdl got in before me basically to say the same thing. Oh well.

So, I was wandering aimlessly around the interwebs yesterday and stumbled across some constructive criticism AceCow wrote about other non-clothing things. Here's what I found:

None of his paintings look realistic! Mountains aren't fucking purple and orange. And where's the detail? There's no detail anywhere. My kid could paint that shit and he could make millions before he even gets to second grade! Why isn't he an artist? gosh

I still think it looks alien on the streets of New York, but I won't say it's baseless.

Not trying to flame, but I'm pretty sure that Yohji's inspiration for his menswear is Western dress of the late 19th century. His spring collection '12 collection is about European tailoring up top and Japanese traditional clothing on the bottom. Maybe you were looking at that collection.

(Yohji people please correct me if I'm wrong. I've wondered about this myself actually.)

i like the pants/ boots together. the sweater looks a bit dressy for the rest. switch it out for a rougher texture knit and this is great stuff bud!!

Nice dude. This looks really good. I'm glad you went with the crappy white vans. I think they look awesome.

Anduru, overall pieces aren't that bad but not gellin' together in terms of colors and "styles"
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nice boots, but the color's too similar to the pants IMO. Edit - maybe colors aren't that bad together. I suggest trying a pant roll and putting on some chunky mid-brown boots - see Aeglus or ManOfKent's pics since they do that a lot
Pants aren't actually that bad really. Little baggy in the crotch+waist area but wearable for sure at your stage
Sweater color's nice but too dressy because bottom half says military and top half says I want to look GQ but don't quite know how
shirt collar looks too small, could be the pulling from the sweater
also the black (?) shirt and blue sweater don't quite really work color-wise. Maybe there's a way to work these together but it'd be pretty advanced stuff.

keep pants and change boot color and then go with a chunky sweater or cardigan
or
keep sweater, swap shirt to white (go back to basics) and add casual wool pants with a casual leather shoe

Well, it is generally a combination of both. Late 19th century and early 20th century Western menswear (suits, shirts, Charlie Chaplin, early 20th century German rustic living, etc.) as well as varied Japanese influences (kimonos, drop-crotches, the concept of "ma" applied to clothing, use of silk in clothing, more recently the hakama pants etc.). That, I believe, is archetypal Yohji for men stuff.

I just did a post on the Yohji thread about one of Yohji's influences called August Sander, a German photographer. If you are interested, you should have a look in there.
