post #21586 of 46966
It just feels to me that - with a couple of exceptions - a lot of the creativity in WAYWT has been replaced by celebrity-stylist "insert designer item here," and that no one's really giving a thought to what they're wearing, and now it's just about who. It's not so much experimentation as just mix 'n match.

So I put the MMM bag up in B&S for crazy cheap. Will donate half of whatever I get for it to the Styleforum McD fundraiser. Moo, I think you need this bag!

I really do enjoy that the forum in general has broadened its scope, and fewer people demand justification of value for big $$ purchases/wardrobes, but I really liked the days when dressing well and interestingly on a budget / getting value for money was more of a focus. I know this is hypocritical as fuck, but I still get grossed out by blatant conspicuous consumption (altho I admit, I like to watch...sometimes).

New SF is way better

AA / APC / CP got really boring after a while

New SF is getting just as boring, only it's costing a lot more money.

ok we apologize, we shall all shop at thrift stores for authenticity and creativity.


please oh creative one, shower me with a fit which consists of a ToJ and random other brands.

AA / APC / for sure gets boring, but the posters who did and do it well were more like

Surplus / thrift / AA / APC / weird yoox finds

I know hi/lo is arguably tired but those are still the wardrobes I appreciate most


Some of this stems from the oft-given and undisputable wisdom of not settling for cheap versions of "what you really want." But just b/c something is expensive or at full retail doesn't mean you should want it, and I think that's confusing for some people--myself included occasionally. I dunno I'm not feeling particularly articulate right now

Aren't you the one having a stroke over people not being authentic or creative with their Rick Owens?

I periodically feel sympathy for how you're treated here, but then you negate that by chiming in with comments that suggest an unawareness of how inane or delusional they are.

God lane, your posts read like such an elitist histrionic fashion queen sometimes

@ APK

I don't think so, this discussion is WAY better, more interesting threads and quite a few new good posters. People always romanticise the way things used to be, but real talk, it was pretty boring.

WAYWT doesn't equal the total of SF, sales thread is a goldmine (risk vs fail lulz) the baller sneakers thread was great (not really SF's fault thats its not so good anymore) the baller footwear thread is great, ToJ is great, Should Shouldn't I buy, Someone should kop threads are great.

Im pretty happy with SF, its a better mix now of workwear / streetwear / high fashion / avant garde components that mix well for the most part.

The thing I never liked about waywt is when people see the designer listing they immediately think that the subject fit must be soley aligned with that designer's vision and not thinking for themselves to see if it it actually meshes well, in a vacuum. That nike rick guy was an excellent example of this.

100% agree that the pace and depth of discussion on SW+ has improved in the last few years

+1 Sad that he rarely posts now. I liked his posts on 'are XX's price tag justifiable' (RIP Dayton) or nicer stuffs that aren't crazy expensive

Eh I never really liked thrift shopping and surplus is pretty bad too

Most of the time it was AA Hoody, AA T, APC NS / PS, Boots

Also, anyone that was interested in good design was ridiculed for spending money, it was unbelievably weird as an outsider to come to a conspicuous consumption forum and then watch people making fun of each other for spending too much

That would be like signing up for a weed forum and yelling "HAHA YOU STONER FUCKS" over and over

I agree, it seems the more expensive something is, the more you covet it. A few years ago I would spend 500$ on a jacket, and think it's almost too much.. Now I'm at a 1000$ minimum, it's bizarre.

that's why listing fabrics can make it more interesting and adds yet something else to consider when thinking to oneself if a fit meshes well.
