The WAYWT Discussion Thread - Page 4789  

post #71821 of 117677

Yesterday I wore a vintage Peacoat, a Fred Perry button down shirt, chinos and brown boots. 

While walking in the city, someone moved out of my way and called me 'sir'. 

It made me feel mature and boring.

I'm going back to graphic tees, skinny jeans and anarchism for a while.

The problem is your misunderstanding the purpose of the thread; the WAYWT thread isn't really for "critique" of fits, it's about looking at other members and enjoying their sense of style, and then contributing back into it. It's basically like a photo-tumblr but with space for commentary and sometimes dumb semi-informed arguments about alcoholic beverages or electric cars. After all, a forum is social media that was created before social media was a "thing."

In that framework, all fit-pics are "content" that's being offered to the content-consuming members of the forum. Thumbs up/comments are only partly about the "quality" of the fit, but are more about the fit-pic as a piece of crowd-sourced content--judged by the standards of "is this interesting/engaging?" rather than "does this look good?" Things that make something interesting: Aesthetic quality of the fit, Interesting (and rare/expensive) pieces, photo quality, whether someone has particularly interesting challenges (knucks's huge ass), and context within posting history are all factors to making something seem "worth commenting on."

Critique is usually offered, but unless you ask a specific question (like "i'm not sure about this color pallet, what do you guys think?"), or people feel the need to comment on (sometimes due to post history, because it provides narrative context for your picture), it's generally not expected.

In that sense, unremarkable fits or painfully banal lifestyle shots do sometimes get commented on/complimented, because it feeds into the "character" of those posters. A fitpic/lifestyle shot from someone with an extensive posting history is inherently more interesting than some rando kid who looks fine, if unremarkable by the standards of the forum
Once you think about yourself in the ecosystem of content-generators and consumers, everything makes much, much more sense. Consider comments/feedback on this forum less about the quality of the way you dress, but more on your ability to generate interesting and engaging content.

TL;DR: It's a content economy, not a fitpic critique thread.

 

Nice extensive explanation, though I already understood most of what you wrote(for example your summary)

First of all, I would never have written that original post if I had understood that the color palette-comment was for me.
The thing I thought was weird was just that NOTHING happened (or so I thought) and I wanted some kind of answer why that was so.

tl;dr
I missed a comment, and failed to properly explain what I was wondering, and then it snowballed rolleyes.gif

tween don't be so worried about wearing socks without shoes!

You may feel insecure for a bit, and they will accumulate pebbles and nails and pigeon shit, but you gotta realize this is all expected when you're taking part in a clothing revolution, man. Keep your chin up. It gets better.

I think it's smart mixing high and low end. I wouldn't buy a $300 t shirt just to complete a designer look from head to toe. It makes sense to invest in key pieces and be economical with basic pieces
