Two things: one, who's hating?  And two, what's "history" got to do with anything?  LK's form speaks for itself, but it doesn't have any bearing on what he puts up today or tomorrow.  "Lacking background" sums up exactly why so many new posters come in and leave immediately: they're made to feel that unless you're in some little club, you're not welcome.  

 

What's wrong with calling something as it is, regardless of who's posting?  I don't see any complaints from HF or Tirailleur or SB or anyone else when something new and different gets criticised, and nor should there be.  Trying different stuff is essential, as is criticism when it's not quite right.  Endless posts in here of CBD suits, soporific grenadines and plain white squares would make the thread useless, so I like to see some boundary-pushing.  But judging different posters differently for the same thing is ridiculous.  A shiny tight suit with no tie is not usually an SF-approved look.  And nor should it be.    That's not hate, it's consistency.  

 

Anyway, as I said, I'm looking forward to what's next.  All are welcome, and judged the same in my book.  I take plenty with equanimity, and I try to give it out fairly.

^Thanks! just picked it up from the tailor last week...I think it may need to be taken in just a smidge in the chest. But its perfect for summer...totally unlined and light as a feather.

This. An internet forum like this is a platform that makes discussion about something possible. If you feel like you are here to make actual friends with faceless users (who in your opinion have something like a history or background of posting pictures of themselves) I feel sorry for you.

 

Post a good fit - cool!

Post a bad one - booo!

 

No matter who you are.

 Stitch does in fact meet up with some of the forum members so they aren't "faceless" posters to him.

 

 Anyone can post pics of themselves if they want feedback. That's the way the internet is. Seems to me that it takes a lot of work to post good pics though.

No matter who you are.

sorry, but i have to disagree. when i said LK has history here, i didnt mean that because he has friends, or that because he has been here for a long time, that his style is beyond reproach. as a matter of fact, i have seen plenty of criticism on his fits.

however, while i usually agree 100% with the statement, "good is good and bad is bad" regarding fits, and that it makes no difference if the wearer has been here since 2002 or 2012, it is at times a little bit overly simplistic. especially when it comes to fits that are not your standard MC look.

what i meant was as follows. a fit like LKs on someone who has no past posting history here of such a style, would surely get an awkward reception. because lets face it, its not the norm here. however, for LK it is the norm, and he has proven many a time, that he knows how to wear that style of clothing.

anyone is welcome to try that style, and if they can pull it off well, with consistency, they will get their appreciation. dont think for a minute that LK waltzed into this place all shiny and sparkly and was beyond reproach. im sure he took his lumps when he first started, but he persevered through the knocks, he learned, and he showed that he knew how to dress.

anyone else is welcome to do the same. but when you buck the trend, and post fits here that are far beyond the norm, you can, and should, expect to get some flack until you can prove you have a handle on what you are doing.

iirc, it took people some time to appreciate Tril's look. there are others i cant think of off hand, but when you show up, and are dressing in a way that is clearly different from everyone else, it takes time for people to warm up to it, and for the wearer to show they have a clue as to what they are doing.

I wasn't refering to anyone in particular, just responding to a vibe I've been noticing around here. If people with mutual interests actually meet after posting here, that's really cool! But I don't think it's something a lot of people do.

Yes, that's why I haven't posted that many fits yet...

I think southernstyle probably fits into this category. He was pilloried.
