This is true of a fair number of posts in this thread, and I think that's the result of folks' not wanting to wade into SW&D who want some feedback on their non-suit-and-tie stuff. I followed WAYWT for a couple of months and saw lots of stuff I think looks good, but mostly not and certainly very little that I would want to wear given my age and milieu.
i was referring to your regular MC brouhahahs, such as in the good taste thread. and imo its a result of MCs rigidity in certain regards. and btw, sometimes, i think that rigidity is very important.
while synths outfit was certainly more SWD geared, he is an SWDer after all, i think that if fits like that were viewed with a little more openness, a lot could be gained. he is not someone who is afraid to go to SWD, he is
a SWD guy. he was posting here to share a fit, and presumably, to see how it was received here.
i think in the casual area SWD crushes MC, and not just in stuff that you would consider out of your milieu.
