Jacket is n(n) too, right? I think I would like it without the hat.
post #87589 of 115892
Yeah the hat is iffy for me too. I bought it to decorate my room really but I figured i'd give it a try in a fit.

Jacket is N(N) FW 04

Is color somehow not timeless? Is wearing some bright gingham/madras/poplin in spring somehow gauche? I don't get it. This thread is just as "uniform"-y as an equivalent thread over at Reddit MFA, but it's not acknowledged here. Even if that aesthetic was the most appealing to me, it's pretty scary for me also to appreciate how expensive that monochromacity is to build. (I totally don't understand the cost structure of that sort of fashion.)

It's an aesthetic trend, and one that is freely acknowledged. Someone like you points this out at least once a month like it's a huge fucking revelation. You're not that clever.

4 of the last 5 fits are not b/w

People who say that everyone here dresses is all black very clearly do not even pay attention to this thread. Someone like synth, who, dare I say, is one of the "poster children" of swd rarely wears all black.
post #87593 of 115892
"All black" is just as difficult to make look good as any other aesthetic. There is no magic pill.
post #87594 of 115892
Color fits are harder obviously because it opens up a huge array of variables to fuck up and if you want to see it done well see fuuma's and synth's fits.

Agree in obviously you haven't been lurking very long.
post #87595 of 115892

Fuuma also had a post a while ago about how black is also hard to do right because of textures. 

 

Who needs a calendar when you keep seeing the same comments...

I just really like monochromatic colors redface.gif

 

I wear plenty of color stuff too - but I enjoy the simplicity and sharp contrasts of grays/blacks/and whites.  I simply chose to post that fit because I really enjoy the cut of the toj and pants, I like the stark contrast between black and white, and I feel that it's fun to play with monochromatic colors and see if I can make them interesting and wearable without being too plain or boring.

Too much colour in this thread... /s

post #87598 of 115892
Some discussion on wearing mostly shades of black that might be interesting or repeated soon: http://www.styleforum.net/t/131495/random-fashion-thoughts/72735#post_6100044

Regarding quote I disagree.

I've always seen it as funny accepted and mentioned that many of us wear the SF-uniform 2013/12/11/10...

I just took a look at what he had available on the bolt and chose something that I thought would work well!!

Neither are you, you of 15,000 low-quality posts (Christ!) and a lot of money to burn. Here might be one reason I may have missed such apparently oft-asked question: The pictures in this thread are not exactly easy to keep up with, and it certainly isn't a pleasure to read. Too many times one can look forward to a poster of your calibre randomly flaming, or perhaps two other posters engaging in a truly epic five-page battle over some bullshit, that is when some other guy isn't giving a five-word "suck/fail" declaratory judgment. It tends to get tiring -- I'm sure someone of your patience can understand that -- so I stick to the WAYWT without words. I thought I might venture in here for a bit, but that was clearly a mistake.
