post #91696 of 115732
Stitchy my statement stems from the belief that swd is muvh more accepting of various styles. The fact that Shoreman decided to post an mc worthy fit in here first than MC is proof. I mean you have seen the reaction at mc when Shah posts a fit there? Mothafokkas be like "collargap, high button point and closed quarters? How dare you post such a bile fit sir? Tis not in good taste"

Two things I always think of in this argument:
1. SW&D members are much better at dressing CM than the other way around.
2. CM is much easier to throw money at the problem.

First time I came here I spent my time mostly in CM. Never went there in the last year besides shoe talk (Vass, Meermin)... just too cluttered, pendantic, daddy-ish... and getting less fun since PG and vox left

to this, i agree. i think within MC, there is a fair amount of allowance for different styles. for example, you, barims, LK, TTO... and others as well that fall outside the standard MC fit, but people still appreciate it. but when it comes to MC guys looking at fits that really fall outside of MC, like the shah example you gave, its pretty much always a disaster. this side of the wall seems much more open to appreciating both genres, and allowing more room for personal style and expression.

basically, i think people here have an easier time looking at something, and appreciating it aesthetically, regardless of any preconceived rules or regulations, that they may or may not even understand to begin with.

imo, for the most part, this side of the wall is just more chill. i chalk it up to youth. dont worry, a bunch of ya'll will hit 40 and turn onto stuffy windbags too.

oh god thats not how it works, is it?!

Also, isn't alot of MC actually mid to late 20's? I seem to remember someone conducting an age survey at some point that put the median age surprisingly lower than I thought it was.

To a point. I haven't been around long so from my perspective there are some accepted styles that the group-think-consensus has deemed good and others not as good, and this has everything to do with preconceived rules and regulations.

 

You could certainly point out some styles of "acceptable" swd fits and a formulae for achieving said look. Lets see... slutty white tee, jeans that fit just so, etc... satisfied.gif

 

 

To stir the pot a bit, I would also add that these preconceived rules are malleable and don't apply as rigidly to veteran posters and even less so for the more popular designers' runway looks. Less experienced members are driven towards a particular style of fit and variation is much less acceptable, if at all.         stirpot.gif

I'm not trying to start anything but, well, you haven't been here very long. While there's usually an SWD "look" that's in favor, it has been pretty variable over the years. Heck, even I remember the workwear heyday, and I'm by no means an old-timer. Raf, Jil and Hedi were the forum darlings for a long time, and it's only pretty recently that the golf ninja and blazer/tee looks have become more prevalent. Rick looks used to get dismissed pretty handily, to say nothing of Damir's early stuff.

If you take a look at what's being posted these days, it really runs the gamut from updated "workwear" to a nouveau grunge to tech-ninja to the SZ-look,however you want to describe it, to the sort of generic slim-casual Euro stuff that's been inspiring new posters recently. Where the beginner's outfit used to be CP's, Dior, BoO and Sterlingwear, now we've got people yelling about side zips, blazers and leather. We're edging closer to golf ninja at the moment, too, although I suppose we'll see how long that lasts.

What's notable is that it's a lot of the same posters (we've lost plenty, of course) who have been here the whole time, and who appreciate all the diverse styles of SWD without bitching about change or whatever. Frankly, I think the best posters on the forum are those who have an interest in "both sides of the wall. As Dlester pointed out in the suits and blazers thread, what's interesting about SWD is that there isn't a hard and fast set of rules to follow, and things are judged on whether or not they 'look good' vs 'looking like an idiot.'

I guess what I'm saying is that a lot of new posters tend to lament the narrow-minded ness of SWD when really, they just don't look very good. Again, not a personal slight at all, but something I've noticed generally. SWD is a whole lot more accepting than people make it out to be.
