I dunno man I've never had an 'ideal form' I just buy good shit and it tends to work out. Not a matter of making ideal real, but of some organic / ongoing development. I guess what I'm saying is end goals are overrated, at least as far as a wardrobe is concerned.

Whatever you do, do not use any of the size charts on their website. I'm a true size 9 and size 40 is the best fit for me (slightly wide foot), which as you can see makes no fucking sense according to their size chart.

I was mocking your purchases by sarcastically suggesting that thewho13 just didn't "get" it

Can't believe you've never seen the fresh prince, what is this world coming to?

 

Ah.... So you were sarcastically implying that TheWho13 was being a parent?  Whatever the case, good to know that you were actually mocking my purchases.  That's totally ok. fing02[1].gif

You talking about "the Fresh Prince of Bellaire?"  If so, that sounds very familiar.  A TV show from the 90s/early 2000s?

Seriously? Bellaire?

Seriously, you don't know the show? Holy fuck.

anyone who doesn't know doesn't deserve the air on this planet of ours.

TLDR = I am highly self-conscious and have a massive inferiority complex so I play dress-up until people around me notice.

Black and white color palet, understated, slightly "rocker."  I think this look appeals to me because it is something of a manifestation of my darker side.  I think it's a cool look, and I like wearing it to parties and stuff, but I wouldn't really feel comfortable being a Dior rocker as a normal mode of dress, day to day, just going about my life.  It's the look I break out when I want some extra swag, and/or am feeling like a bad boy (nawmsayn).

Taking your would-be insouciant tone entirely into account, this is still some of the worst prose ever written on the subject of style, but thanks for the larf.

The quote in your signature is timeless laughs. It sounds like how I imagine a Monocle writer sees himself.
