Given the title, I expected this thread to be a place in which people mainly have a discussion about, well, in which way the sartorial is political. Especially because this is supposed to be the backlash to the "What you d like a girl to wear" thread. Instead, it is exactly the same. The only difference is, that certain styles are not welcome, because they do not fit the queer/not mainstream taste
of OP and his friends. This would be fine, if the thread title would be "queer/non mainstream stuff". It is just ironic that (some of) you try to justify this as being non-sexist in contrast to jcrew/mainstream, even though there is nothing more sexist then a group of guys who decide what is acceptable for a woman to wear -- doesn't matter what you come up with and for what reason. Right, the WYLAGTW thread was exactly this, but it did not try to to be something else and at least for a while was open to all sort of styles, until people were getting bashed because what they posted was not SFstream enough.
I agree with Hendrix. People want to see nice fits. If it is repetition nr 1000 of whatever style it becomes boring. Its just the double standards applied here (which some of you fail or do not want to see) that
put me off.
