Benesyed- Your style is coming across as very "try-hard". For me it starts with the glasses and extends to everything else. If you have cash flow problems, stop buying yohji. I've been in the Yohji thread and pretty much everyone, including myself, who doesn't have a good grasp on their own personal style just looks bad in Yohji. It's a high degree of difficulty and it also happens to be very expensive.

This is just a hypothesis, but I think you might be choosing clothes based on how much you like them in a vacuum, regardless of how they might look on you or fit in with your wardrobe (a common mistake.) For example, why did you choose those glasses? You have decent features, but they are completely dominated by those goggles. Find something that fits your face. Then find a pair of trousers that fits your physique and so on...get to Yohji and unbuttoned double breasted blazer experiments later.

Okay I'm not usually a huge fan of your fits but ignore gt, dude is off his rocker lately. You're going to be an SF success story, just give it a minute. Also I usually have terrible pics and get a lot of thumbs, half of it is being a regular*.

What I have learned so far is that when I stick to very basic yohji inspired things, it fits me well and is pretty well received, issues of footwear non-withstanding. As I said before, I think my latest fit was a good basic fit and maybe the photo quality hamstrung me a little. What I was hoping for was feedback about maybe wearing a less slutty t shirt, maybe tighter fitting cuffs. Get a sense of how to do details in a basic fit so that it still looks great.

I think where you are right is with slimmer fit clothing. Part of it is I do not have a good ability to discern tacky t shirts from good t shirts but the feedback helps me with that. The other part is just what you said, I do not know what my personal style is when it comes to that sort of stuff.

This is such nitpicky stuff, and it's really hard to say exactly what tweaks will bring a decent fit to a great fit. I think this is where creating an inspiration folder/pinterest/whatever really helps. Not sure how slutty a tee you need w/ a look? Not sure how to cuff? Go to your inspiration folder, find similar fit. It's difficult to make really minor suggestions, especially when quality of photos is low.

A couple things benne:

you're not going to start posting good fits immediately, it doesn't work that way, no matter how much you spend. there are certain nuances which you will only really notice with time and it really does take some time to figure out what works on your body type, etc. i've been here for 2 or 3 years and still consider myself to be VERY early on in my "personal style journey." As much as I bitch, I actually think it has helped me having a limited budget, because it forces me to think a lot more about buying pieces and as a result i've had a pretty good success rate w/ things that I buy. Also, clothes look a lot better once they've been worn in, drunkenly slept it, thrown in a ball on the floor of your floor, etc. just makes them look much more natural. box fresh clothing generally looks bad.

bottom line is you'd probably be best served by a self imposed spending limit per month to force you to make more focused purchases. keep an inspiration folder as others have said, and learn to critique your own fits. To be honest, most of the time I post a fit here I'm not really looking for advice as I know what needs to be changed to fit the image of what I'm going for in my head. it's more for posterity and the sake of community. Also, you'll notice the best posters on here don't follow a single designer or aesthetic, but kind of synthesize something on their own. even the heroes of the yohji thread all have their own take on yohji. or, for example, tween spirit. it's less about fitting into someone else's vision and more about fitting into your own vision.

TC Walter should get exclusive access to thumbs comments.

I really dont understand the animosity some of you keep expressing. I feel like I take advice and try to make changes and improve my wardrobe and in response some of you think that its ok to be really mean or rude. If you really dont like my posts its easy enough to block me.

I am not sure exactly how people who want to learn what it is they do wrong when they put different outfits together are supposed to learn, or are trying to decide how to redirect their wardrobe are supposed to get better at it if they can't get feedback from people who have gone through it.

And what sort of pass do i get exactly? People post worse quality pics routinely but get tons of thumbs up when you cant tell the details at all! I feel like I get pretty little slack other than not being made fun of (which actually isnt the case since people do that sometimes anyway). I did not know that not being insulted was a privilege.

 

You're a nice guy, benesyed, but I think a lot of people are just tired of seeing a new benesyed fit every single day.

the purpose of this thread is not for us to guide you on your personal style journey - while this thread provides feedback, it's not your (or anyone's) blog. don't post every random outfit you happen to be wearing. try something a few times, and if you think it works THEN post it here.

Yes he PM'd me after one of my comments about 2 months ago and I tried to give advice. But since, almost none has been followed. Ben, not everything needs to be a statement piece. Your wardrobe is like half Yohji and half a mix of non SF approved cloths. And you can't really mix and match anything. That is why your fits and everything are all over the place. Like others have said, and I as well, buy more basic stuff that you can incorporate into more the style your going for. And that doesn't mean only by YY, how about some normal fitting trousers, better shoes since all of yours continue to suck, and no Zurric's, those are garbage.

I admire how you casually said you had ass last night like you are just describing what you ate last night. So jealous of you for that. Me, I just had pad Thai. By the way, you didn't by chance had pad Thai flavored ass last night didn't you? Yum yum...or may I say Tom yum yum soup spicy and delish
