I have pretty much every Monocle issue since 2 years back.

Sure, the parts about fashion and their love for "traditional, artisan methods" are a bit too much, but I think it's generally an enjoying read.

I want to hope against hope that this is a trolling account... but you have too many posts ;(

Haha, I promise you that my posting in SW&D is not masochistic!  I really don't enjoy all the hate I get.  The fits I post here are the stuff that I wear day-to-day, so SW&D seems more appropriate for that.  Plus, while I often get a lot of hate, I sometimes get useful bits of advice - which is the main reason I post fits. 

 

Concerning my sense of style... I appreciate many different types of looks, but I really only utilize a couple of genres.  I suppose that, because of my background and upbringing, I've always looked up to a "refined" style of dress (the definition of "refined," of course, is in a way subjective, because what I regard as "refined" is based largely upon my own experiences and subconscious leanings).  I really like a good suit, and I'm willing to spend top-dollar on a suit even though I don't wear them much.  I respect and look up to (and perhaps also aspire to become) businessmen and attornies and whatnot - the type of people who wear suits every day - because I (somewhat subconsciously) view their place in society as being better than other's, and aspiration-worthy.   This is pretty much an ingrained part of who I am.  Because of this, I almost always prefer a collared shirt, and I only wear a tee/henley/something else when I know that a collared shirt (regardless of the collar type) would be out of place.  I think I have a certain aversion to anything too "casual," as I am always trying to look a little "nicer" than other people.  My friends, most of whom have no sense of style, often remark that I "look nice."  I think that, due to the experiences and normalities and history of Western society, most people of a Western culture would say that I "look nicer" than my peers. 

 

I have been trying to incorporate more casual items of clothing into my wardrobe.  As my sense of style evolves, I think I am beginning to understand that I would do well to look more casual on certain occasions.  I guess this casual look I'm developing is sort of #menswear.  It still harkens back to the traditional modes of dress of the 1800s and 1900s - which, as I've said, I look up to.  (E.g. lately I've been wearing chinos + tee + sneakers, instead of the usual chinos + OCBD + Bluchers).

 

The other genre of dress that I've been playing around with is sort of a minimalist Dior/rocker look

Like this (Click to show)

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).

 

So, yeah... sorry for the OCD response.  shog%5B1%5D.gif  It's just clothing.  My sense of will change naturally, and since it's an organic and analog process, I'm not too concerned about it.  My likes and dislikes will change, and I'll change my clothing to match.  C'est la vie!

 

BTW, check out my other recent purchases.  No blazers here!

Ya dood, it's terrible being 5% and overweight.  I've been doing the scarf-and-barf method to get back down to 2%.  Eventually, I hope to hit 0.5%!

Let me help you: I, above all else, appreciate the look of a nice suit, which is why I tend to dress more formally. However, I have been trying to dress more casually as of late.

Instead, we get this nonsense:

Seriously, that second paragraph makes no sense whatsoever.

Kid, I hate to tell you- you look like every other young guy at the mall. Try typing less and do something a little more creative.

All I did was post a few paragraphs of attempted self-analysis.  Just words and speculation and stuff.  I said nothing to deserve getting beat to shit.

Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.

So you've even made up a cutesy name for bulimia?

I posted my response out of sheer perplexity. If you are going to put it all out there, don't be surprised if someone tells you that it is nonsense.

Maybe I can make up for it:

Those are by and large the classics I remember my hippie elementary school teachers wearing with oversize tie-dye tees around 1990.
