You're misinterpreting my words. Context has nothing to do with how one dresses.
If a random dude gives me medical advice, I would listen to it and discern if it was good or bad advice. Is it supported by scientific evidence or is it just random unsupported shit ?

i'm sure everyone has their own valid opinions, but people have poor ways of delivering - i.e. their social skills are shit. do you go to a party and start calling people you don't know by their nicknames, do you make fun of some dude you don't know because his friends are ribbing on him?

Actually, no, not every opinion is valid. I just told you I'm not a relativist.
And please, proceed to quote a post where I made fun of someone.

seriously, this is an online community with established people who are part of it. anybody with some social know-how, tact, and etiquette should be able to treat this forum just like a "real-life" social gathering. who the fuck is this random guy telling me shit like he knows me and knows shit i know i know? (speaking for the many) plenty of new posters have come in and were accepted readily, because they have good social skills and probably know a thing or do about interacting in groups. people get butthurt too easily - learn to have a thicker skin and not take things too seriously, or continue to be overly sensitive and think you can come in with the sense of entitlement others have earned (rightfully or not) - see how far that kind of attitude works in the real world...

You must be mistaking me for some other new forum member.

how am i to take advice from someone on something specialized when they themselves have established no credibility whatsovever?

Credibility has nothing to do with how good or bad the person's advice is. It might influence how much or how little attention you will pay to the advice but that's it.

Scientific evidence, critical thinking, reason, logic.

It's not ALL about post count; acecow had almost 4000 posts but nobody took anything he said seriously.

yes scientific evidence is a great way of measuring styling advice on an internet fashion forum

fashion is inherently subjective -- therefore, someone's commentary carries little weight without a context of that person's background

half of volchok's posts have now been spent trying to justify his own existence. this must be a first.

Until you post a fitpic and we can assess how you dress (ie, your credibility), things you say will be taken with a grain of salt. It doesn't help that everything you say comes off as authoritative.

Don't get this fit pic stuff, plenty of people who don't/rarely post fits here still are well-respected or at least considered. You can apply context to someone without photos.

fashion isn't entirely (or inherently) subjective. our fashion sense operates within a very narrow range. sure in the absolute theoretical vacuum (the conceptual forest?) fashion, like everything else, is subjective, but we don't live in a vacuum, and all of us who post here - even you - have rigidly delineated preconceived notions about what is acceptable and what's not.

We don't spend time here because we want to figure out how to get the world to like how we dress. Rather, we are here because we are obsessive hoarders who like to spend our children's futures on fancy clothing. Get in or get out.

First post here after lurking for a bit.

Suggestions would be great.

 

Abercrombie shirt I got on sale

Naked and famous skinny guys (size 28)

Beat up pair of red vans

post #74923 of 115991
uh it's hard to actually tell what you're wearing, but i guess it looks ok. i have a feeling the shirt is kind of tacky, and vans are always just meh -- there's so many better options out there -- but it's a lot better than most of the recent shit.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but this to me sounds like a confirmation that fashion is subjective -- it differs from individual to individual, and isn't based on external "facts" but rather on the thoughts of the subject.

Are you suggesting people listen to critiques which they think are invalid? Who does this, ever?

yes this is a big concern for me which is why i have a fashion mullet and flowing hooded cloaks

You do realize you're contradicting yourself within the same sentence, right?
