I think this is the issue here. Nothing wrong with buying cheap stuff but don't do so because of this.

I have alot of jackets from Uniqlo...

But  I have also passed over alot of great deals at Uniqlo because the jackets/shirt/pants were too short or fit terribly. No matter how cheap I will be (Trust me.. I am CHEAP... I find excuses to not buy stuff for myself everytime) I will never compromise fit... unless it is on purpose.

 

and if you can thrift well or use ebay efficiently you can find things that work for you. I don't think anyone is telling you to pay like a BOSS and get NSM. I can't afford that either and wouldn't advise anyone to do so if they don't have a king's budget. But please don't fall into the trap of copping things because they are cheap.

Actually, probably SW&D?

Rarely. I don't get it. A bunch of people admiring street-wear. Some stuff is cool. Some of the leather jackets. 

 

That thing doesn't belong to SW&D and CM, do we need a 3rd subforum? "Purgatory"?

No, japanese denim, leather jackets, and 400 dollar sneakers are completely foreign to me.

That would explain the success of the American public school system...

I do that, too. It is how I was taught using a program called, "All The Write Type" in elementary school.

It's standard English usage.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
SF has a groupthink to a degree, and there are no more assh@les to snark the f*ck out of some of these ridiculous fits, and on the rare occasion someone provides critique, the received tends to get all butthurt, OH BUT I LIKE MY LOOK!!! WAH WAH WAH... someone call the f%cking wahmbulance already.

i mean, seriously, is it so hard to look at the forum and see what is considered good and realize you aint it, and if you want to be it, you need to make serious changes. i get that anyone who gives a crap about how they look is usually the best dressed dude in their IRL group of friends, i know i was. and when i posted my first few fits i was like f^ck yeah, look at me, im hot sh#t!! BALLER!! but after like a day of getting feedback on all the myriad issues i had, and looking at what other people were posting, i was like, wow, i suck. so i spent the next year on fixing things and literally changed my entire wardrobe and im still on the outside getting in. open your freaking eyes people, and realize that just because you are happy with your clothing does not mean its great.

one more thing, dont give me your sob story that you only like to spend under X bucks per items. then you are in the wrong damn place. im not rich by any means, but on SF, you have to pay to play, to a degree. every time you buy something on the cheap and knowingly sacrifice something, whether its the fit, or outdated details...., you are going to look off, or even flat out bad. if you are deciding that you wont pony up, you will most likely end up with mediocre to poor results.

now, it can be done. big O is a mad thrifter, but he does it carefully, and i think he is the only one i can think of that manages not to make sacrifices for silly deals and sales, and finds stuff that consistently looks good. but its no easy ask, and you have to be fastidious with what you choose, but the odds for success are stacked against you.

chin up, accept you have a lot to learn, and get with the program. and if you cant stomach that, go to plebeforum or something.

Good rant, Stitcheroo.
