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...
because the items work together and you're not a fucking idiot who assigns value solely on price?
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
why do so many of you think it's ok do act like a total dick to someone just because you think they are shitty people? i mean, it's like the most obvious form of irony - brad do you really go around calling people "fucking idiots" in the material world, based on snap-judgments gleaned from a superficial amount of information?
