Volume III: Less AZN, No Leather, Stop Menstruating All Over My Thread EditionGa-vroche
No doubt you've spent at a few minutes wondering how to pronounce his user name. "Is "˜vroche' pronounced like Jim "˜Croce,' but with a V instead of a C? Man, how great was Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown?" some of you have probably asked yourselves at least once.
Well never mind that, because you should have been focusing on more important things, such as how Ga-vroche-croce managed to make a subtle, but effective stylistic transition with fewer than 100 posts in three years. In this instance, we can attribute this transformation to ga-vroche learning how to work with textures and also apparently buying stock in APC.March 2008
"Hmph, where oh where has my swag gone?"October 2010
And bam, a successful transformation without completely revamping aesthetic, killing a cow or moving to Asia. Yes, Ga, you're right. A salute IS in order.whodini
Today, a lot of whodini's posts can be paraphrased like "Lulz newbie, you have NO idea how the fashion industry works. *I* do, because I've had lunch and imported beers with some mid-tier designers and shop owners. But I'm not actually going to give you any details to show why you have no idea."
But in simpler times, Mr. Dini put together some pretty mediocre fits, presumably before those high-powered luncheons and brewski sessions.May 2008
whodini is still prone to some drab fits, but he's found some gold while experimenting with different silhouettes and footwear that aren't Chucks. Just don't misspeak about the inner-workings of the fashion biz around him.Augusto86
He doesn't post around these parts anymore, which is a shame, because his "˜net activity dropped off right after he made some significant aesthetic changes. My sources are unable to confirm why this is, but my expert analytical conclusion is: He started getting mad ass from the ladies and didn't have time to post pictures of himself for other dudes on the interwebz.November 2007
Now, Augusto86 had a leg-up in his transformation, since his "before" wasn't an abomination. Sambas and cafÃ© racers aren't advisable, especially as a tandem, but the ensemble is still more visually pleasing than the average person you see at a mall food court. Also, not everyone can simply trim their hair and do away with child molester facial hair to reveal a dashingly handsome face.
But the moral of this story is that the nuances such as hair and facial hair can make a world of difference. You don't need to run to your local barber/hairstylist with a fistful of Synthese pictures. However, if you're one of the people suffering from nosteezeitis, then you may want to consider if details such as your hair are playing a factor. Your smacked-ass haircut may be the only thing holding you back.Adam24
So initially, I had this entry reserved for user West24 after seeing some of his old WAYWT entries and then thinking about how good some of his more recent ones were. But then I realized that Batman had subconsciously caused me to waste time, because I was really thinking of Adam24
Thankfully, all was not lost, because Adam24 used to be pretty terrible, too!November 2008
So how did Adam24 distance himself from the child molester comparisons
Well, he stopped molesting children for one (I kid). But he also went for a cleaner palette. And as Adam(not West)24 shows, cleaner doesn't have to equal boring. A lot of his fits utilize muted colors, but in a manner where they compliment
He won't win any awards for boldness, but he's come a ways from running the risk of being arrested on sight any time he's near a playground.
