StyleFourm vs. Hypebeast vs. SuFu

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

I'm pretty new to these 3 forums but I'm only active on here so I was wondering if anyone could try to explain the differences between the 3 forums.  Maybe a general stereotype of each forum would ever help.  

 

Thanks!

What does he mean by Nikes and "Whites"?  What are whites?

All the other ones have an even more exaggerated heel that makes you look like the Wicked Witch of the West.

What a crap.

eh, I'm not overly familiar with them but I'll take a stab.

SF (ignoring MC) is mostly a mix of traditional mid-western USA workwear and vintage style clothes, with a more recent bend towards minimalist high end designer-wear, often asian, etc. It's mostly about slim trim fits and textures, etc. SuFu is a bit more like the latter part of SF, probably edging more over to the runway/fashiony side of things, I'd say it's more trendy small designer wear stuff, where SF still has some MC influence in there. Hypebeast tends to be about very over-the-top, if I may say somewhat obnoxious items, typically random mixes of bright colored shoes, large logos, somewhat baggy fits, more of an urban street look, but at times with rather expensive items. There's also a strong interest in retro and vintage wear, but where SF is more about the chucks and common projects, Hypebeast is more about vintage nikes and new balance.


at least based on visiting each of the sites a few times... that's my general impression.

(and yes, I'm sure someone will quote me and make fun of it and say I'm way off base without giving a better explanation)

In all fairness, the semi-dress is a nicer looking boot than the one I posted a pic of but still not a fan of the heel:

Free & Easy had some pics of some collabs Rugged Museum did with White's to produce a sharkskin smoke jumper boot a year or two back that looked interesting. Not sure I'd wear it, but it looked interesting. I'll see if I scan a pic or two (nevermind, found one)

And I think Master-Classter's comparisons/descriptions are pretty accurate too.

This is quite accurate actually, though both SF SW&D and SuFu sometimes seem to consist of two completely different groups of users that coexist on the same forum (one part denim/workwear/americana and one part designer stuff (please forgive the rather inadequate descriptions)), yet they never seem to meet... On a related note, why don't any of the J-Crew and Clarks lovers on SF ever post in the WAYWT thread?

Sufu seems to have a really good denim section.  The APC thread on SuFu is all pictures and fir pictures where as the APC thread on SF is all the same sizing question over and over again.  

 

I really dont post on either of the forums much, as I lurk more to see whats out there.
