a list of posters who don't adhere to the SWD aesthetics and STILL get love
and I guess I can add myself
noone is telling him to wear SS and RO... all we are saying is that there is obviously an issue with his fit... MC or SWD. Many people have noted it. He should either take the advice OR somehow overcome the deficiency plaguing his fits. maybe adding some dimension to his style would work.. but at this pt it looks like We are watching elisix reruns.
you missed this part of my post
i really should have elaborated on that more. certainly one get look great without the brands, but its hard to deny that that is much harder for most people to accomplish than sticking with brands people like. it requires a really good sense of style, knowing how to find odd pieces that look great, and put it all together.
Barims is one in a million, no question. id put you near there too. you both have your own look. are consistent with it, know what works with it, and have a unique style knack that is not something most people have.
GDL - mostly branded stuff and custom stuff and is all around one of the best dressed guys i have ever seen. hard to use his as en example for mere style regular level dudes. also, you need some coin to dress that way.
MOK - i think he has a decent amount of branded stuff, and is pretty doen with the current SWD look i think.
NYI - really mostly an MC guy, also with a lot of branded stuff plus a good consistent sense of his own style
Shoreman - have not seen/do not remember enough, but he does dress quite well.
i am not telling him to buy branded stuff, i was just stating what i perceived to be for the most part, what is liked around here. and i think starting with some of the liked brands is often a good stepping stone to heading in a direction that will be appreciated here.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Barims is swaggy as fuck, breaks all the rules and looks like a boss - individual panache, not even slightly #menswear
GDL is basically at the forefront of being "SF-approved" (in a good way) - junya, schneider, TOJ, high tops, boots, the whole shebang
MOK is our friendly heritage icon
NYR doesn't really get much love, he just wears jeans
Shore is what SWD was 5 years ago, and he's still going strong. He keeps the dream alive.
What, exactly, is the "SWD aesthetic?"
its all the looks that get 25+ likes every time they are posted. many are yours.
