So I'll start with a intro. My name is Max. I'm 18 and a freshman in college. I have always cared about my appearance and liked dressing nice. But I am terrible with "fashion" and figuring out what goes with what. I've had a subscription to GQ for a year now and have been catching onto a few things from reading it, but I still find myself getting confused. Mainly at pairing, what colors go together, when and how to wear something, etc. Are these things that are constantly changing in the Mens Fashion world and the only way to know the answer is to read magazines and visit sites like this? Or are they all mostly set in stone rules that can be bent and tweaked through the years?
Sorry if this is a confusing post. I am just trying to figure somethings out so that it will be easier for me to continue learning.
Here are a couple small questions:
1. When it comes to your style "genre", do you have to only dress a certain way? Or can you have multiple styles. My example: I am more into the preppy look. But I also like the street wear style these days that rappers and people like that have. Like Diamond Supply, Supreme, etc. Is it ok to dress in either "genre" depending on how you're feeling that day? Or is it best to chose a "genre" and stick to it.
2. Do you guys find GQ, Details, Esquire, etc. to be reputable fashion sources? Or are they too "sponsered"? If so, what are some other places I can find whats trending?
3. Does Mens Fashion really from season to season? Like is the spring 2012 style trend going to be the same this spring 2013? Or does it change up?
4. Is there any yearly mens fashion books or large magazines that "forecast" the upcoming trends for the year? Or are there any mens fashion books that have a lot of info on styles that never really change in mens fashion? Like a fashion bible or something? LOL
I'm sure some of you will find these questions funny or weird, but I would really appreciate your answers on them.
