I guess they had a little quip about Galliano but I think it was more anecdotal than anything else. The looks weren't based on aesthetics that were current or dominant but on how stupid, dsconnected and vacuous fashion people can be, about the culture in fashion circles.

On the other hand I don't see the link with the comment I made on Comme going counter to current aesthetics but having it relatively easy anyway due to borrowing from fine arts ideas and a public already familiar with them.

I think this discussion has occurred many times.

We all already know:

1. This stuff is largely contextual.
2. Architectural features can make you look good (including but not limited to MC rules) or interesting.
3. Playing with said architecture can make you look interesting in context.
4. Each of these things are somewhat subjective.

edit: nm du got banned
post #74945 of 116023
why did he get banned?
post #74946 of 116023
who cares
post #74947 of 116023
Because it was Xhale. It always is.
post #74948 of 116023
Actually, can Fok chime in and clear up what originally got Xhale banned? He seems easily agitated, but the mods seem to have a really quick trigger finger when it comes to zapping every new account he makes, especially since a few other people here seem to skate by despite regularly instigating conflict.

pretty sure ban evasion is grounds for a new ban

To hem or not to hem?
post #74955 of 116023
Don't hem! Inseam's really not that long.

The angle makes your torso look tiny though. Higher angle would be way more flattering.
