beginner needs a new look - Page 2

post #16 of 29
It sounds like you're overly concerned about fitting in. If that's the case, then you've likely come to wrong place! Try carefully observing what you see your peer group wearing and then compare it to the fit pics that are celebrated in the WAYWT thread. I'll bet your peer group dresses in a manner totally at odds with this forum's opinions. So expecting this forum to teach you how to fit in and attract cute girls via your clothing is likely pointless. If you feel boots may make you look "gay", then I would argue you are likely reflecting the attitudes of your peer group. Where else would this opinion have likely come from? If you feel this way, then it is likely others in your group do too. Thus listening to advice here will only push you further away from the attitudes of your peers. And I do understand why you would fear that boots make you look "gay", even if I don't personally identify with the sentiment. Try discussing fashion with people both in and outside of your peer group and you will learn a lot about the attitudes of different groups. Yet someone will invariably post on here "Boots gay!? WTF are you talking about?!?" It's as if they live in an insulated world whereby they don't spend any time questioning and examining the attitudes of their own group vs. other groups. Rather, they act like sponges taking in the attitudes surrounding them, and will then defend those attitudes as if they were the truth. This forum provides steady supply of solvent for the sponge.

i'd worry less about style, and more about swag.

clothes play a part in that, but maybe not how you're thinking. maybe wait til you get there, and check out what the scene is. what you like is bound to change. go with what you like, not what you think other people will like.

i really don't understand the problem with chucks. i wore them at varsity, and i wore RM Williams boots as well. Neither worked for me...

its not so much fitting in as not not fitting in. i dont want to just be another guy, i want a style similar but different (and hopefuly better) than other people so that i stand out as the 'well dressed' or 'stylish' one in the group with a bit more individural flare than the others, just wearing what they see on manikins.

im not going to use fashion to try and attract girls, thats futile. im going to do exactly what i do now, talk to them. i just think being better dressed would help give a positive first impression and thats always good. + we all feel more confident when we think we look good, but more than this i dont want to put effort and time into a look that will activly drive girls (and guys) away.

leaving aside the shut-up comments (unless you want to dress like uncontrol), i really wouldn't worry about it that much. wear what you like.

Here are my suggestions for inspiration:

See Daniel Craig's style in Casino Royale, or Russell Wong in Romeo Must Die. Their styles are understated and leaning on classic, sleek but manly (and not 'nice guy'-ish). You can base your look off of them and tweak things to fit your environment.

you're in england right? from the picture you posted, you would very much like all saints spitalfield as a retail outlet. Just don't buy their leather jackets or shoes and don't pay retail

You should probably avoid wearing pants too, they might make you look ghey.
