No catchall rule is being applied here. And I probably missed the "one" outfit you are referring to, but I think his outfit lacks punch which could very well be supplied by a more dramatic shirt. or a nice tailored one. Either way would work, pick a lane (I know I know "who's Ellaine?")

yeah watch me raaaamble

Is it just me or has every non troll post you have ever made been about blazers and every fit you've ever posted included a blazer?

I was talking to a girl the other night who was wearing a blazer over nothing else.  Hendrix, I think you should go all-out.

But then I remember that second-wave feminism is dumb.

Beats post-modern tumblr-wave feminism, where your fit is automatically bad because of your cis-privilege.

You could say my aesthetic is Tumblr-core.

Something looks strangely familiar about one of their jackets. Something I can't quite put my finger on. patch[1].gif

Obviously there's nothing crazy or even particularly unique about a raglan sleeve, mixed materials bomber-style jacket, and I'm sure there are plenty of designers who offer this or something similar. I'm not trying to imply that Kazuyuki Kumagai borrowed from ToJ, or is even necessarily aware of its existence. IIRC, Drew never claimed that his designs were unique at their most basic level, just refined and updated takes on classic styles (e.g., rider-style and bomber jackets with modern fits and high-quality materials and construction). The picture just kinda jumped out at me when I was scrolling through the collection. peepwall[1].gif

Looks a lot like every other mixed wool and leather varsity-ish jacket to me, though obv with a zipper. They've been going strong for a few years -- earliest one I remember is Vince from around fw09 (though I'm sure they weren't first) and now Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Viktor & Rolf, Simon Spurr, etc ad infinitum are on the bandwagon every season.

Oh, and if you click on the pic, it's kind of a nostalgia trip.

Like, that's also around the time Blue Magic was posting. Anyone remember him? He was one of the few SFers I've actually met in person and was every bit what you'd expect him to be like.

Holy crap! Pg2g, I remember that guy.
He was like the black nil smile.gif
post #75612 of 115951
He and Xenox took many a beating here. Also remember wagthesam, the failed SF experiment. frown.gif

Whenever I'm really sure I look good, I need to look at that era of WAYWT threads for a little humility

Many could say the same thing. This pic was one page after the slutty t pic linked above, uploaded by someone with almost 7k posts now.
