The "new" Mr. Moo was freaking me the fuck out too, until he pulled out the old "you cretin, you have insulted my honor and I demand satisfaction!" routine when some dude criticized his waywt a couple of days ago, and I realized things haven't really changed that much after all.
I think when I got here, the W+H hoodie, BoO oxford, APC NS, and alden indy was the uniform of choice. I distinctly remember Fuuma posting a pair of plain white Margiela trainers, and people freaking out about "WTF 400$$ FOR A SENAKER???!???1." Now every other person in WAYWT has CP's as their baseline, and Moo is copping Rick Dunks.
