Get some UU chinos. At the very least, they're designed for what you're going for, and it'll give you insight of how they're supposed to fit.

I dunno, if you just wear a blazer like that a few times you probably won't think of it as a big deal anymore. Obviously people are going to comment, but there's always SF to validate your potentially alienating and ridiculous sartorial decisions. That's real friendship.

Regarding pants, I tried these on in Zara today, but I wasn't totally sure about them. They're kinda blue-ish, and they're not bad, but it was really kinda disappointing knowing the difference between pants like these and pants like Rick, Damir, and Yohji. Still might pick them up at some point, but we'll see. I'll take a look at the UU chinos too—a lot of people were really digging those. (Also: that's a different blazer, plus a different white t (kinda lame layering I think) on top of the tank.)

Everyone in this thread has been recommending very specific fields of philosophy for people who want an intro to read. Like econ, or ethics. The others have gone off talking about continental theory. 

If you want an introduction, read an introductory book, "Modern Philosophy" by Roger Scruton is a good beginning, he covers the groundwork of most modern philosophy (continental philosophy and analytic philosophy). Once you get more into philosophy, you'll find that during the 1920's to about 1930's, a large gap between so called "analytics" and "continentals" began to form. Analytic philosophy essentially is about things that can be proven a priori, or through pure reason, without any sort of empirical data, or empirical anything. They talk about philosophy of mathematics, logic, linguistics etc. Russell, Wittgenstein, Frege, Quine, are analytics. The continentals are people who began to be increasingly interested in social phenomena, these people are like Lacan, Zizek, Derrida, Hegel, etc. and the "continental tradition" encompasses existentialism (which I feel doesn't actually define the so-called "existentialists", but simply denotes a common train of thought/interest in the self that was common for a certain time period). Continentals usually are pretty interesting but they usually use excessively complex sentence structures and generally introduce their own lexicon to describe phenomena that they observed, which leads to lots of debates about what they actually mean.

Declare yourself a master of texts; declare everything a text.

Continental philosophy in a nutshell.

i should take this over to the other thread, but can't resist: one of my philosophy tutors was taught by a pupil of wittgenstein's. after he finished his degree, he spent over 10 years working for British Rail, in line with Wittgenstein's belief that philosophers should do something of concrete value in the world (of course the great man himself worked as a schoolteacher).

and yeah tirailleur i think you are one of the 25% smile.gif

when scrolling down i liked it, but expected skinny jeans and boots or whatever. got to the wide trousers, and fucking loved them. what are they/what are the shoes?
post #69088 of 117677
shoes are just sandals.
post #69089 of 117677
lately I've gone back to variations on this (swapping out tees), which was pretty much last summers uniform. boots desperately need a resole, they're each missing an entire layer of leather on the heel now, and a good amount of each sole.
