I have, however, seen people wear clothes with Yohji-like shapes and cut, but they tend to be women who are new immigrants from places like Yemen or Pakistan.

I agree with a lot of what you guys are saying, and obviously I'm open about my interest in clothing. However, it gets pretty obnoxious to have to defend myself, clothing is a hobby that lends itself to abuses.

And artishard, I think the concept of complete disregard for what others think is absurd. We're fundamentally social creatures, even people who live on the fringes are defined by normative values and practices and their personal reactions to them. To consider one exempt from or above social criticism or the social dynamic is ignorant, imo.

Plus, whenever I hear anyone say it, I think of those 7th grade scene girls on Myspace that would post along the lines of "Sometimes I'm a bitch but I don't give a F what you think! lol"

Probably not.  But then, the knowledge that the pants are Yohji fills in some of the gaps left by a static image that isn't completely representative.  People wondering if the fabric is good, or if the pants look good in motion, can find their answers by looking at the brand (yohji = looks better IRL/looks better in motion/etc.).  At least, that's how I see it.  There's probably a lot of brand-whoring going on too, though.

My friends are very accepting of my interest in fashion, and I don't catch any flak as long as I don't go too far over the edge.  I want to let my tastes in fashion evolve as they will, but I also don't want to get picked on because my clothing is too far from the norm.  As reedo and some philosopher (Socrates?) have both said: man is a social animal. 

 

And then, there's the stereotype that all fashion-y men are gay.  cloud.gif

How embarrassing.

No that is certainly not my shirt

whenever a friend or someone comments on my clothes in a way that sounds derisive (ie. snotty like a 7th grader) I explain briefly why I like my clothes or tell them something about the designer and their attitude changes pretty quickly. they suddenly find themselves interested and don't just think it's weird but look at the clothes as something that a real person thought up and made. what a concept!

yohji is not about whether people realize you're wearing yohji

People that shouldn't be wearing Yohji are the only ones that WANT people to know they're wearing it.

this goes for all clothes, no?

I think you're just reluctant to lay down the nuclear option, which goes as follows:

"Look at my outfit. I'm a bomb ass motherfucker. Now look at yours. See why I spend so much?"

If you ever decide clothing is more important than friends, say something like that.

I myself also try to conceal my fervent interest in clothing. Sadly, i do feel its demasculating to show a huge interest in such superficial ventures, and the point of swagger is to seem like you don't care what you're wearing, or that it was natural without much thought.

and I still feel dropping $735 on a jacket is exorbitant, and I rather keep it to myslef shog[1].gif

^^ See, though, everyone cares about clothing to a ridiculous degree, even folks who at a glance wouldn't seem to care at all.

I kind of wish the world would give fewer shits about the types of fabric people drape over their bodies so we can all have fun with our clothinz choices instead.
