Physically, I'm mesomorphic in build so I have broad shoulders, small waist and strong calves . I use to swim competitively and now I do my daily Hatha Yoga practice. I've always enjoyed fitness. Wish you could return us the favor and post photos of yourself.

I wish I had a cool name like that. I think my name means something like "Light thought"...

I will post here when I feel like I have something worth sharing. My style isn't that exiting imo.

To add to this, AFAIK, they are only sold in Barneys inthe US, though someone feel free to say I'm wrong. And to reiterate, they *are* built like tanks, and weight about 3 lbs a shoe.

since when is there a rule that accessories MUST be functional? if it is, that is an added bonus, imo. i personally accessorize to have fun, and i don't think people on this thread dress mainly to be functional. quit hating.

Functional or not it still looks like shit.

I'm not saying ALL accessories. I'm saying baseball caps specifically. It's taking away the heart of something that was created as a very functional item.
Not that it really matters. Looks stupid no matter if you buy into my sentimental reasoning or not.
I'm a hata fo lyfe. What do you think this thread is about? People don't learn unless you tell them what works and what doesn't.

Savage - Someone finally posts a bandana picture I have no hate for. Thank you. Not digging the tucking the jeans behind the tongue, though.. Never have.
A Harris - Those boots look amazing.

This was posted a while ago, but I don't think I get the aesthetic. Apart from the double-layered shirt, this looks like fleece black sweatpants and airwalks. To me, it looks like you just rolled out of bed and are running to get the paper. I suppose if you were to wear this in the middle of the day, it would be a bit of a shock at how underdressed you are, but I can't decide if that makes it fashionable. This isn't meant as a rip post, just trying to understand better.

I think this silhouette is a strong indication of were things are going moving forward. It may look casual in the photograph but the whole point is for the wearer to benefit from the cut and feel of the outfit and fabrications. A photograph doesn't do justice to the outfit or quality of the garments worn. The Lanvin's are a little extravagant but they do look "very" nice in person. NOTE: Could Fade To Black be Chris after a regimen of steroids?

I do agree that the line between ftb's yohji esque outfits and too casual/ordinary is thin, but i think he walks it very well. I don't speak for ftb, but i believe his casual wear focuses more on material and silhouette rather than perfecting slim fits or GQ tailored looks. People say that certain looks seem like they might be $50 from the mall but i don't see people actually make it a reality very often. Most all of the waywt posts could probably be like that if you really tried. If i had no knowledge of other brands (mostly true, actually), i could assume that A Harris's outfit was all gap, save a pair of boots from somewhere. (i actually like the outfit a harris, i just used you because you were the last waywt that i noticed)
