post #76 of 255
It was when I went to visit some family in Taiwan in 09 that made me really self aware how god awful I was dressed. My outfits were completely devoid of any personality or creativity. SF approved brands looked like shit on me so I broadened my search and started experimenting. Found that not only did Japanese clothing fit me really well, but it was something that worked for me and that I felt good in. But it wasn't something that happened overnight, which I think, is what many people that come to SF believe will happen. I can't count the number of bad purchases and the amount of money wasted before I figured it all out.

yeah but it was only a year or so between the two pics APK posted? that's a pretty impressive transformation

I think the first pic was from November last year and the more recent one from this summer, August, I think. So a little under a year, if that's where you want to mark my moment of "transformation".

Yeah I think my style has generally stayed the same, only my stuffs way more expensive and fits a fuck of a lot better.

I'm not sure I've ever followed any advice that SF has given me, and I imagine that's very true for a lot of posters here. Honestly, brand exposure is probably the biggest plus on this site. Obviously, WAYWT has a lot to do with that, but I think that the "successful posters," rather than copying pieces or styles they see here, look for the romance in other people's pictures (and there ought to be romance in fashion, in the 19th century romantic sense. That's why posters like fuuma, kunk, gosurface, and Socal, to an extent, are seen as "inspirational." There's no search for the "perfect fit" (read: fuck wings + horns), rather there's a search for viable daily fantasy.

I've gotten more previous level with time. The world is cruel that way

People changing their styles completely after finding the internet fora does not suggest that they simply did what the internet told them. "Look at WAYWT and take cues from stuff you see that you like" is oft dispensed and perfectly acceptable advice.

lol, so true... Although its kinda good when experimenting in order to see if what you put together is coherent, and looks well put together.

LOL yah, this forum is definitely a good jump pad into learning about other brands. However, a lot of new people probably get too caught up in the "approved brands" and aren't branching out. I'm happy it took only myself to realize that jcrew sucks, and that I needed to find something else. That's why I went on the internet for teh fashiunz.

Lol, dude misses the point completely. I guess he doesn't realize that about no one in their second pictures is taking typical SF consensus advice. In fact, the Snake "transformation" s exactly the opposite of what this dude is saying, from SF style to personal style. Seriously, some people...

seriously dude? where did you learn about raf and ann and how is that any different from people online telling you about them? i'm sorry we didn't have access to fashunz like your younger self did. it's not like the internet said "go wear this" and the sheep went baahhh bahh. they wear shit they think looks nice and then when they realize it looks like shit they evolve. what the fuck is wrong with change? it's wrong for snake to change his style up to something he likes more and thinks suits him better? buncha hipster bullshit. "i heard about raf way before you did from my mom and not from some internet nobodies" "yeah well i was wearing raf diapers when i was a baby"

lol at this tool. you don't have to suck up for approval from strangers on the internet. in fact you dont have to do it for people in real life. and seriously what the fuck is an opinion or even an education except a collective of other people's opinions, your analysis on them, and occasionally original material? what, is everybody supposed to reinvent calculus on their own?
