Deal with it.
I'm a theatre major (or was), if I disliked writing in that mode I would have hung myself in an overly dramatic fashion long before now. Given who you were addressing, however, I do feel your post was rather prolix and could have benefited from less academic verbiage.

Now someone post some CdG or Miyake photos and get this back on topic.

My prolix could use some seriously academic verbiage, if you know what I'm talking about.

What's great about FWK styling is the way it totally perverts the whole americana/workwear thing.





If this thread were about paintings, it wouldn't be the thread where you post about Thomas Kinkade (rip).

If I was a chick I'd probably wear nothing but FWK.

 

Even so I'm tempted to kop a wrap skirt.

 

But

I don´t see the point in coming here and criticizing the pictures posted.  We´re just people that appreciate fashion and the many different forms it can´t take, and it´s not just about the clothes we wear (i.e menswear) but everything.

Though not a contributor, partly for being lazy and also for not knowing where to look for pics to post, I enjoy coming here and looking at what others consider interesting in women´s fashion. If that happens to be girls in "unusual" outfits, so be it. The world is full of plain, ordinary looks to be seen, so why would I wanna more of that here?

Added thewho and hendrix to the first post, thank you guys for articulating the reason for this thread existing. To be honest, while what you guys described was and is my hope, I didn't imagine we'd actually manage get there. I do find the J Crew etc. style boringly predictable at this point, but my problem is first and foremost with people's justifications for posting pics of it than the style itself. I would settle for a thread where we never have that argument about "well the name of the thread is 'how would YOU like a girl to dress'" again, even if that thread includes said j crew pics.

But then again, in my mind the j crew look is a kind of patriarchal bargain, and we can all do better than that.

trying to find pictures of women of color on fashion sites is difficult and depressing.

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.

Tbh, very few girls dress like this irl, at least where I am from (Toronto, Canada). 

 

For example, I would not be surprised if our women's winter uniform was a repeat of last year: Canada Goose jacket + TNA / Lulu pants + UGGs boots. Not that I'm complaining of course satisfied.gif

None of us are saying that this is the kind of clothing we expect women to wear. This is a thread for sharing women's fashion, whereas the previous thread was turning into a DT wankfest.
