The WAYWT Discussion Thread - Page 5658
right, but a cardigan is a type of sweater, no?
that's why I'm thinking (let's just keep it American, and menswear) that a sweater is a catch-all for any knit top for men (excluding jerseys and knit polos). types of sweaters including crewneck, vneck, turtleneck, cardigan, sweater-vest, even hooded, etc.. can be any type or combination of wools, cotton, linen, etc.
and that sweatshirt implies that it's woven. these come in crewneck and hooded forms that I know of. hooded can be zippered as well.
These are just guesses but it's how it works in my head.
Hmmm. I guess I have heard the term "Cardigan sweater"
So I guess sweater is the family.
pullover/jumper and cardigans are seperate genii.
and sweatshirt is a species in the pullover/jumper genus.
It was very late when I was posting last night, and some of my comments may have been out of line. I've woken this morning and read the past few pages twice to take it all in. There is a lot of good info there and I appreciate it.
It's obvious to me now, what this thread is intended for. I had been taking it literally as WAYWT as the title suggests. However I understand now that this is less about receiving individual daily critique, and more about showcasing your more refined looks based on earlier advice and your own progression. Of course there will be fits which are not to everyone's liking, but so long as it actually fits your body well, and you can pull it off, it will be admired.
And while I do feel like I have been taking in the advice being provided, and shown some degree of implementing this, there are some fits which are still getting the basics very wrong and have not yet been addressed. This in turn causes ongoing frustration and ultimately criticism. I will try to take on the advice being provided where I feel suitable, and participate more in line with what the thread is about.
I'll just finish by saying that it is not criticism which upsets or concerns me, it's the blatant rudeness of some people. That said, this is the internet, it's full of trolls and pricks and it to some extent expected. It's just a hell of a lot nicer around here when people provide great constructive feedback and talk specifics - I guess it's even nicer when people take on that advice.
people aren't being rude to you, we're just tired of you posting 50 different outfits that are virtually identical (and mediocre) and then ignoring almost all the justified criticism you receive because 'it's just my personal style' or some bullshit. we are not here to spend hours holding your hand and saying 'gee, perhaps maybe you should do this..!'
tegs, if you will not even acknowledge that sometimes people are rude, and even act like assholes, with their commentary, you are blind.
i am not saying that you are rude, and i am not saying that some peoples frustration with E is unwarranted. what i am saying is, that some people act like assholes on here. to deny that, is foolish and dishonest.
Actually WAYWT is for daily posts of your outfit except we gradually became such assholes about it that people now post their "best" outfits as if they wear on the daily. Actually some people even post outfits that are actually a result of playing dress up to solicit critiques/thumbs.
I don't know what's going on anymore but if this is true it's horribly depressing. I regularly wear everything I post and I share in hopes of some discussion which never ensues maybe my tastes are too divergent but hey at least I got manual focusing down quite well. Instead, it's just bunch of people cussing me out for no reason (just like that face book filled with thumbs which I don't care for either) ...
There are many little nuances to every culture that make it unique, and sometimes very funny. Perhaps one of the most misunderstood signs in Iran is the "Bilakh". Bilakh, a hand sign showing one thumb up, is made when one is upset and is trying to tell someone to buzz off, or is trying to get back at them. Unfortunately for the Western world, this sign is the equivalent of the "thumbs up" sign and is often misunderstood and mistaken for the wrong thing.
The origins of bilakh are very obscure and quite debatable. Some say it is what people would want you to sit on if they felt anger towards you. What the middle finger in the West does for telling the person to "f. this" then has a very similar meaning which is "sit on this thumb" (ouch!) and think about that for a while. It is thought that the origins of it also stem from practical jokes where people would place sharp or phalic objects on seats to have people sit on them by mistake and poke fun at the person. In Iran, a bilakh is "given" typically when:
1. One is upset at someone and needs to tell them to "stick it where the sun don't shine"
2. One is trying to prove a point or to get back at someone in the sense of "I told you so". Here the thumb is considered to be handed to them in their lap as a sign of defeat. This is the adult version of sticking your tongue out, which Iranians do all the time.
Word of caution: the bilakh is considered a very very rude gesture. The equivalent of the "thumbs up" then would be a victory sign, holding one hand up and making the V sign with it.
Maybe there should be a strict n00b WAYWT thread that's strictly for advice for newcomers?
