Others who are less known/accepted on this forum have much less leeway for variation away from accepted standards or types of fits and are expected to fit into a current kind of "standard fit".

There is definitely a group-think-consensus about what works that is more or less maleable depending on who is presenting the content. What "looks good" depends on who is presenting it... to a large degree. People have posted fits here that get 50 thumbs that I think look like shit or are just average at best. And no, I won't give examples. smile.gif

Anyway, just my own humble opinion and observations...

Ann has caught a lot of criticism over the past few seasons for straying, perhaps unsuccessfully, from her look. The most recent season (f/w 13?) was sort of a return to form for her. Damir's past few seasons have been pretty negatively received here. Not many people care for Rick's runway shows, they just like the leathers. I don't pay any attention to Devoa so I can't comment there.

Anyway here's a fit, it's nice and breezy/warm today.



Brooklyn Tailors / Acne / Nike

Now please give me 50+ thumbs for this decidedly average fit.

IDK, orange shoelaces? wink.gif

 

 

 

I also want to point out I'm NOT saying there is no objective basis for what looks good, I think there is, and opinions here do reflect that as well.

 

I am also under no illusion that any fits I've posted are objectively good, maybe to some varying degrees, but not nearly as good as many people posting fits here.

OK, I will say it.

If you post a good MC fit here in SWD, you will get ~5-7x the thumbs that you would get in MC, at least.

Getting to 20 thumbs in MC is damn near impossible, while here it's pretty much par for the course.

And we all post to get thumbs.

So there's that.

MCers don't know there is a thumb up system, they quote the post right above and say "wonderful outfit, old chap!"

i will admit to being guilty of that to a degree. some fits though, deserve more than a thumb, imo. especially if there is something specific i like about it and want to comment on. back when there were thumb comments.....

for example, koy, great fit. i need to find shirts of that length to wear untucked.

I never understood the faux-english-gentleman-speak-when-you-really-from-Ohio that goes on in MC confused.gif

Until now I thought kindofyoung would give me up. That he would let me down. That he would run around and desert me. But his latest fit shows he's never gonna do such a thing.
