I have no idea why the following is a #menswear editor

This might be a good #style editor but #menswear?

Never knew that. I see many familiar names though.

Actually, it was valetineuhovski and champagneproblems that I had in mind when I suggested in the letter that perhaps tumblr was appointing some of its employees to act as editors for the menswear tag. Their choice does seem more than a little strange...and it wasn't long after they were added that there was a notable increase in the more fashion-oriented posts on the #menswear board.

Also, this is pretty interesting: tumblr's "Tag Editor Guidelines" page.

It includes policies like:

"Don't use your selections for personal purposes. Tag pages are for users to explore all the diverse content on Tumblr. Don't use your selections as a way to market your blog or your friends' content."

and

"Focus on original content. Choose posts with original content and commentary over links to headlines and photos without additional context."

This is a silly, idealistic rule since it goes on all the time and everyone knows it. For example, the #menswear editor who is an employee or partner in a very well known menswear store, who blogs about the store, the clothing, the vendors, the owners, and himself.

I like it because he does such an excellent job in content and photos. As long as the content is there, I'm cool with it.

Just checked in with the #menswear tag search. The first two that come up are Nick Wooster...coincidence? smile.gif

I 100% agree with all of this. How are us small timers with under 500 followers able to share our outfits if when you type #menswear you see the same picture over and over again. Less pictures to share means you will see the same picture on your dashboard multiple times.

 

It's a rich get richer, poor get poorer scheme so to speak. Tumblr need to revert back to their old tag system.

Interesting to check this out, I had no idea some of these guys were #menswear editors. And yeah very interesting to find out the likes of Ethan and Details magazine are editors, when like you said what they do goes exactly against the tumblr rules, but you can't fault them, if the tumblr staff let them do it then I'd milk it too. And you are right Ethan does do a great job with his content.

Anyway I had my own little victory today and passed 500 followers.. cheers.gif

Just checked Tumblr #menswear hash tags. NIck Wooster has four of the first twelve posts with no more than his name or a short phrase.

Hard to imagine that these are the directions given to editors by Tumblr:

"Tag pages are for users to explore all the diverse content on Tumblr.


Why don't they just have a separate #Nick Wooster hash tag and leave it at that smile.gif

I have no clue why that dude is so popular. He looks like a random tattooed Thom Brown model... who works at JC Penny...

Well, the girls and ladies like him. That's what matters. rotflmao.gif

It's not even about follower numbers, though. It's about who follows you/who you talk to outside of tumblr. It's benefited me, at times, I guess, but just doesn't seem to serve the purpose of exposing good blogs and good content.

I'd 86 over half of the menswear editors. The overwhelming majority of their blogs show neither an understanding nor appreciation of tailored menswear.
post #225 of 270
Why should #menswear be limited to an appreciation for tailored clothing?
