The moobs / slutty comment might have been stupid, but there's been much worse said about people in here.

elisX i think you're probably right. but i don't really care all that much about about the critqiue of my outfit per se - i've been posting pics here for a little while now so im generally pretty ok with how i look. was just soapboxing myself to make a point

plus i'm probably just being sensitive because i was up all night

I always like breezy fits because not only are the clothes cool but dude also always has an awesome grin or dumb ear-to-ear smile on his face and that always makes me feel good

what do you guys think about the other part of my rant? like...misrepresenting ourselves in a way to give off some whatever cool vibe instead of like a good ol' "what up internets"

low sodium donuts?

Breezy did you remove the fit pic?

Breezy, what do you expect? The internet makes it incredibly easy to create a facade. You're going to get fakers, tryhards, trolls, assholes, ihas9inchdickbutonlyontheinternet, and people like me as soon as you create the opportunity to wear a mask. smile.gif

That was a post that needed to be made, Breezy. And FWIW I've always thought you were one of the coolest dudes on this forum, both your clothes and your happy face/good persona.

 

I've always frowned to myself about the comments made on people's bodies in this thread, I mean this is a forum about clothes and how we wear them and someone's weight/body shape shouldn't ever be brought into question, IMO. But I guess it's more a societal problem rather than a problem with the forum itself. 

 

Yeah and as far as the creating an inaccurate image of yourself here, I mean, it's the internet, posting on here you get to pick and choose what people get to see of you, I'm not going to post shit I don't like about myself up on here and I doubt many other people would, so you're really only going to see the sides of people that they like, it's inevitable really..

 

*pat on the back for making a post I have never had the balls to make*

nahneun - yeah i know, dude. normally i don't care - but for some reason i was feeling cranky...must have been the donuts

hmmm... sometimes when we call regis an 80s drug cartel jeffe does that mean we are misrepresenting ourselves?

i think its kinda neat to make these comparisons. maybe if it was said that you looked like a sleazy rockstar (im sure synth can come up with something waaaaay better) would it be more of a compliment/more genuine?

...i dunno

HAPPY CANADA DAY BUDS!!!!!!!!!

Here's the thing though, slstr. Your body will obviously affect how your clothing ends up being worn. A fat guy wearing a BoO shirt a size too small or a skin tight Julius will look bad, no matter how you dice it. He might be oozing with the quintessential SWAGGGG that can make or break fits, but it'll still be bad. Your natural aura will affect how comfortable you look in your clothes, but a bad look is bad no matter what. Different clothes are made for different body types and there is no one size fits all solution (well...maybe Yohji is as close as you can get to this). If you're posting a fit on the internet and your body is negatively affecting the fit of the clothes, people will comment on it.

Wouldn't it be disingenuous if he had kept his mouth shut? Just imagine you had terribly bad breath, wouldn't you appreciate someone actually telling you about it?

We all have our insecurities and I think making comments about someones "gut" or about them looking "skinnyfat" or "fat" or "disproportionate" whatever the fuck can really fuck with how a guy feels about himself on the day to day.

Nobody here is criticising people's bodies, but rather their choice of clothes to go with that very same body. At some point you should just accept that a certain aesthetic might not work out for your body type and start dressing accordingly.


Also the internet as a whole might not be the best place for you if you can't take a little criticism.

you're right snow, it is cool to make these comparisons. i totally appreciate them and the place that they come from. i just wanted to point out how eventually the language that we use to describe those comparisons invariably just kind of inveigles itself into our vernacular, and that that's where we need to be careful - or rather just aware. like maybe just have your own check-in so that you can back up the extended comparison that you're making to rockstar/cokedealer/etc. and then it can be boiled down to a few words...get used and rinsed and repeated and enter the every-day use without the weight and reference it had before it and then it someone becomes disingenuous. my gf tells me i like that word because i use it so often. disingenuous. don't do it!
