Kunk actually breeds dogs for pet stores, and has a large number of litters delivered weekly by breeding stock. As a result of one of the greatest coincidences in cosmic history every fitpic ever taken of him is taken precisely 17.7 seconds after someone kills his puppy.

Volume III: Less AZN, No Leather, Stop Menstruating All Over My Thread Edition

Ga-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:



October 2009:



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:



November 2008:



Now, Augusto86 had a leg-up in his transformation, since his "before" wasn't an abomination. Sambas and café 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:



December 2009:



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 the other.

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.

I get into NYC (assuming there's no "Day After Tomorrow") the 13th. Capsule's that Mon/Tues and then I leave Thurs morning. We'll be working Mon and Tues during the day so Sun, Tues, or Weds night would work best for me for drinks. My description was pretty dead on. This forum can be a great place for information and unfortunately misinformation sometimes. There aren't so much rumors or lies as there are misguided or poorly-reached assumptions that tend to spread fairly quickly and soon almost become fact. We're better than that. When it's convenient to set a record straight, I'm happy to do so; the cost, however, is in the details. So to paint a picture, talking about "A" can be harmless, talking about "B" might get someone in trouble, talking about "C" would cost me a brunch at Balthazar, and talking about "D" would cut the source at the spot and put this forum in a needlessly-bad light. If "A" was enough to clear up some doubt, I don't know why anyone here would feel entitled to the rest of the goddamn alphabet. It's just fashion, nothing's that juicy save for the steaks at Macelleria.
