If. The guy doesn't say he's wearing Levi's and Jcrew. Some ppl may ask if the khaki and shirt is from other designer brand. As long as design works together nothing wrong.

cemented soles can be replaced...you just cement on another one. I get what you mean though. I'm just making the point that even on MC people revere things that aren't great value in terms of their quality:price ratio.

i only revere TEH BEST!!!!!

no, but in all seriousness, pretty much everything i have bought recently, has been up to par for me in terms of quality:price ratio. and not just what i may have payed, even at full retail (assuming one agrees the concept of full retail is ever justified. in many cases, i feel it is. but not in all cases).

yo stitch you're doing that thing again where you make multiple posts in a row instead of one larger one (and this time both posts are even about the exact same thing)

edit: thx, now I just look dumb redface.gif

because the items work together and you're not a fucking idiot who assigns value solely on price?

Most guys wear expensive or good-looking shit up top, but with crappy shoes.  That kills it for me.

I assume you're familiar with the whole "gemming" fiasco and subsequent collective MC mindsplode?

It wouldn't have been such a big deal if we didn't have this erroneous idea that MC items are quality and value for money and are somehow completely isolated from fashion.

Regarding Goodyear Welting, it is essentially a type of cemented construction as the upper and welt are held to the insole by cement. Now obviously EGs are stil better made than shitty mall brand cemented shoes, but there are also some very well made cemented shoes that are at least equal if not better constructed than GY welted. For example, here's a quality cemented shoe. Of course, handwelted is undoubtedly the best construction method, but we don't and should not buy things purely from a construction standpoint.

There's almost no way you can justify clothing by price:quality ratio. I suggest you stop trying to. I've been down that road and it doesn't end well.

why is everyone on this forum so "fucking" rude? terrible manners





in reply to what ronnel said: i don't really think the brand matters, per se. but more the textile and pattern of the article of clothing going into an outfit. personally, i think elis's shoes look silly with the rest of the stuff : stiff pants, button-up with t-shirt (no hate towards you, dude - i hate khakis and lanvin sneakers on their own). so i agree on the matter that when something like those lavinz look really expensive, and the other stuff paired with them look cheap-er and from a different aesthetic, then they do look incongruous.

but to characterize the combination of certain brands that are $$$ and others that are 0.0$ as always incongruous or un-pairable, then i find that disingenuous, especially when you compare them with fast-fashion "houses" that have a massive repertoire of different aesthetics - meaning you can find something from those brands that looks ok with fancier shit.

i think it's a hallmark of good style for a person to be able to pair the cheap with the expensive and make it look good. it's just that most of the time, on this forum, at least, they are done with such disparate brands or with little thought that the combinations end up looking a bit off...


meh....i'm saying this even though i typically never cheap stuff, so what do i know...

Or because you only bought the expensive shoes and accessories because you want people to recognize them as status symbols but you don't think it's worth putting any money into the rest of your clothes because you think no one else will know anyway and you don't care about the clothes themselves.

Sorry I'm with Ronnel on this one. I don't actually see what everyone's issue with the dude is

Elisix is more guilty of the shit that Ronnel is accused of than he is

edit: And everything Breezy said

I like the idea to keep shoes and outer/knitwear belt and the rest can be average.
