My sources of inspiration vary a lot. SS lookbooks are somewhere in the mix, but they are definitely not the most important one. I'd rather say these are social media (including this forum, some blogs, portals, etc.) and books. I'm here because I think that some looks published here are easily among the best available. This includes both guys who steer towards more classic ways and those who dare to experiment a little. I'll definitely stick around, because that's my passion and I love discussing it with other people even when they point out my weaknesses or lacks in knowledge. I believe it's the best way to up my game.
Fair enough. I'd tend to say that most menswear social media aims to copy the ad-look anyway, so it's the same difference in that regard. I'm glad you will stick around because even the fits that are not SF approved do all of us some good. It gets us to think about why we believe the things we do. Explaining things to someone clarifies things in one's own mind as well. This isn't to say you look bad, btw. Again, a different aesthetic. Who knows, we may yet make you a nice little clone anyway.
