post #84766 of 117666
ugh, i think i am being misunderstood. i am not advocating buying brands as the only way to success. there is a lot of range here, and plenty of room for individuality, and there can be great success within that.

i am merely stating that buying things that are know to be liked here, will obviously garner some appreciation, and learning what that is, and then building your own style from there, figuring out what looks good on you.... is easier than just trying to all of a sudden be a style master who can pick out odd stuff and make it look great. that takes time. a lot of time.

this discussion sucks guys

What's that quote/story about how hard it actually is to look "effortless?" Some throwaway blurb, but the point was that style's a bit like writing, or riding a horse, or skiing - you work at it for a really long time, play your scales, practice your french fries, and eventually you don't have to think about it anymore. Elisex is just playing his scales!

...In a room full of people trying to listen to a concert.

Holy shit guys, SWD is so simple. Like, supremely easy. Here's how you win:

1. Suck less

Stop overcomplicating things, seriously. If you look good (no, only YOU thinking YOU look good does not count) people will enjoy your fit, regardless of brands.

i can appreciate barims' next level-ness but when i see his fits I feel like he is so punchable. I'm not about that life, jelly, etc.

In_sitches has a very good point, but needs to make it more lucidly and with concrete examples.

ok I can buy that. My disagreement stemmed from elisix's inital statement

I think you missed the point of his analogy, as it would still fit in well with your expansion of it

 

style can have it's own Etudes and WTC, just as it can have it's own Gymnopédie as it can have it's own [    ]

 

but no matter how you look at it, starting with the basic scales is not a bad place to start, even if the direction you pick is more elaborate and beautiful scales

This was a post i wrote that's my understanding of how SW&D WAYWT works.

You might find it useful and enlightening,or you might find it banal. At this point, I really don't give a shit either way I just like reading meta-discussions.

Sometimes this thread turns very bad very fast. Shoes not pictured but black slip-ons. I'm trying to post a fit to get it closer to normal. Left is how I feel when I read the thread like it is currently.
