I didn't realise that picture was from your first post here KOY - and honestly, personally attacking you is not my intention. I apologise. However how long have I been in this thread? A month? Should I have learned to be a good, obedient WAYWT thread participant by now?

The fact that you claim there has been no journey is wrong IMO. I've asked a whole series of questions and am actively trying to implement some of the things I agree with. I'm not going to be told what to do, nor should you.

Nothing as interesting as that tworksheets, just a braided and marled belt.

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.

I don't know what to make of this

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

 

Scales can be beautiful.  Beautiful enough to be concert-worthy (Etudes, WTC).  ElisiX fits are practising his scales.  Hence EliseX fits can be beautiful.  Beautiful enough to be concert-worthy.  If he is not ready for a concert with his scales, that's between him and posters who reply to him.

Playing scales is repetititive.  If ElisiX is playing scales, he will be repetitive.  You can't indulge him playing scales and complain he is posting the same thing over and over again. 

That's all I was trying to say.  Not trying to join the jerk-circle.

 

ElisiX seems to be having difficulty finding a shirt that fits him and looks good.  I really don't get why this is worthy of a public and long-winded dressing down.  Tirailleur suggest MTM, which I think is the best and only good suggestion, so far.

No, I was saying if we all work at it, we can all move and live under the sea!!!!!!!!  Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.

the problem is that he keeps posting and promising to tailor his shirts etc, but its pointless to keep posting the same stuff without doing so.

also there are several threads which are more about making these small adjustments to style and working on stuff- affiliate threads for relevant brands, the quick question thread, the noob thread, etc.

its silly to post in the waywt thread, get critiques, then keep posting the same unchanged stuff and expect to not get called on it.

edit: fuck now ive been drawn into this dumb argument thing

Guys, let's be realistic: Me finally posting a fit was like when the two characters on a sitcom FINALLY get together. Whether or not it's satisfying to you, there's really nowhere for the show (or in this case, thread) to go but south.

Oh, ok, sorry.  I only pop in here every now and again so I didn't know this has been going on for a while now.

Last time I popped in here a few weeks back, another poor dude was being crucified for his glasses when it was clear he was just trying different shapes.  My bad.

 

But I agree that there is a definite aesthetic here that blindly heaps praise on certain brands, regardless of their absolute merit.

 

If I was owner of this forum, I would demand a tribute from Suspension Point, for all the free advertising, even shilling, that their merchandise gets on this forum teacha.gif
