the difference is that 2 years from now when a lot of people who are buying lanvin/margiela/zam b today are on to the next thing, me, shoreman and a few other people will still be posting the same workwear / j crew-esque aesthetic except the pieces will look even better because they have actual wear.

this is not in defense of ellisix though

FTFY

I can't be bothered to go back pages in a thread unless it's to see how many thumbs up old APK posts have gotten, but wasn't the main criticism there based on the example having a noticeably different body type compared to elisix?

i would wear a lot more actual vintage if it wasn't gigantic sized. have a few pieces that are pretty good -- old ass super heavyweight/oversized pringle cardi, a belt, and maybe some ll bean boots

the funny thing is i'm one of his chief critics in this thread, and it's not as if our style is remarkably different. i'm one of the few posters left who still posts workwear type stuff (including some j crew), it's just that elisix does it terribly.

Pringle... when I first started posting here, MC guys had the biggest hard-ons for that brand. Barely hear it mentioned any more for some reason.

That was mentioned, but several also pointed out that the examples he provided were too safe, too normal, too mainstream, too GQ uhoh.gif to ever be appreciated here.

I think he needs lighter colored shirts and some semblance of decent outerwear. And better shoes.

For the aesthetic he tries for, and the money he can presumably spend, a few Epaulet shirts (per recommendation earlier), a pair of Aldens, and 1-2 grey/navy sweaters + a Barbour jacket would go a long fucking way. Certainly further than another Kitsune thong.

Also, according to Malcolm Gladwell, elisix is doing everything right (tiny tweaks, continuous practice, non-stop feedback) -- he'll be an outlier fashionisto in 7,000 hours.

If someone here can pull up my thumbs-up formula, that would be greeeeeat.

Pretty much this. I own one thing from J.Crew (the chambray) because it's a great shirt to wear out to bars/pubs. Being a student, I would look silly going to a bar in Jil/Raf/Schneider.

My day to day wear consists mostly of things from those brands with some cheap basics mixed in. I tried the J.Crew/GQ look when I first joined the forum, but after a year you just get the hang of things and it becomes boring. It's all just matching colours. No cool details, silhouettes, etc...You don't really get to play around with things and experiment. To subscribe to that style of dress makes wearing clothes akin to wearing a uniform. It's not a bad thing to dress in that stuff...as a beginner. But once you get the basics down, it's quite unfulfilling to continue to stay content with dressing that way. Plus it's fun to look pleasantly different.
