The Terrible Fashion Blog Thread - Page 16

post #226 of 783
I just found this thread. It amuses me greatly. There is a lot of absurd shit I can't defend, but I think I few people get some unnecessarily harsh ridicule (Welcome to Styleforum).

After reading this thread, my advice to you fearful style bloggers:

1. Type less shit

Or put more elegantly:

I don't need to know how classic and timeless it is or what it is reminiscent of. I want to know about the details of the item, how much it costs, and where I can get it. That's it.

2. Do not take pictures like this or really do anything that this guy does:

I hang my head low with embarrassment to have made this list, and ask of you gentlemen, whom I turn to for advice (chiefly lurking, I am but a pleb) rather than just laugh at my blog, can you tell me what I could do to improve it?

I understand my sense of style is not going to mesh with everyones, and I definitely have a long ways to go, especially when it comes to fit, but I would strongly appreciate the gentlemen of SF to give me some solid critiques I could work on, so as to become a better informed style writer? My target audience is not the already well dressed but rather friends and family who have pushed me to put my thoughts on style on paper (so to speak). I would rather not mislead them and would be forever in your debt if you could point me in the right direction.

I have posted similar queries on Reddit's MFA only to be met with sneering and abuse with no actual critiques of what to do better. I've already earned the disrespect of SF, so please, give me feedback on what I can do better?

Respectfully,

Dapper On A Dime

Don't post for maybe at least three months. Do nothing but read, Styleforum is an archive of information. A decent place to start is Best of WAYWT, The 5,000 wardrobe, quick questions and answers thread, browse WAYWT, search for older discussion threads. There's also older best of waywt threads that you can find with searching.

Ah. My bad. I thought you were just mocking the haircut, gold chain, and hand/gang (WTF are those supposed to signify?) signs.

I hate to make such a judgement, but I think it's more likely his parents are the ones that need a punch in the gut.

what about his parents' parents? and their parents?

His physical appearance is unfortunate and he bears no responsibility for that...
