As for having an opinion, hey, we all have them. And it's definitely not closeminded to hold them. However, it's closeminded to reject something just because it doesn't fit your own aesthetic. That's pretty much the definition of being closeminded - the inability to make paradigm shifts in your thinking. And it is just ignorant to state opinions without basis. Check out the "What do you think of my outfit" thread if you can't figure out how to articulate an opinion.

if i rejected everything because it didn't fit my aesthetic then i would have left this forum the day i started. there's things that don't fit my style and i accept it (ex. nut-crushers). Then there's things that make me think "WTF!?!? ARE YOU EVEN TRYING?". guess which this helsinki style falls into? Somethings just go too far into my patented "WTF-o-METER". If that is fashion then i don't know what isn't fashionable. the funny thing is that these guys who like this "style" are the sameones who say evisu calls too much attention.

actually i seem to remember you not being so accepting of nuthuggers either (a little comment about male ballerinas comes to mind).

Lesson: the trained eye can judge whether a person understands that true uniqueness comes not from clothing, but from within. By looking at the person's clothing.

so by accepting you mean insulting to those who wear them.

i get it now.

I would have left this forum long ago if people didn't present interesting styles and brands. I could just walk into Macy's and get all the fashion style I needed there.

Blackplatano, you do bring the frat boy point of view in here though. So i guess that's something.

I do like the different perspectives, too. Speaking of which, I'm finding that my tastes really run toward the early 20th century, like working class wear. I love the reproductions that EG make, and really wish there were more companies of that ilk around that actually sold their stuff in the US, and not solely in Japan.
