Not just "in a way". but exactly in the same way, then.

This article and the ensuing discussion is funny but let's parse what you're supposed to get out of it (Fuumawisdom edition-tm):

  • Even women in fashion tend to apply relatively mainstream criterias about gender roles when it comes to dressing (or so they say). Cause they know the topic they'll have developped a style taxonomy and a list of precise exclusions.
  • Make no mistake, they see normal (badly dressed) dude and they're not into it either.
  • A certain surface coherence between how you present yourself (lifestyle) and how you dress is appreciated, no one likes a poseur even though authenticity is an absurd concept.
  • No one here gives a damn because we're clothing enthousiasts. With that being said people tend to react positively when you have passions and present them in a compelling way.
  • Girls I know have made a list of what I and other guys are not supposed to wear, even busy people tend to free time when it is to be spent bitching.
  • LAGuy dresses like an asian cowboy on a kid's scooter and his wive forgives him, he should def stop for some flowers today and maybe the day after.peepwall[1].gif
  • Nothing in that list makes much sense, you shouldn't trust people on the internutz

Wow, someone made wooden fedoras





Apparently to match their wooden bow ties

Right now, do you wear full Engineered Garments (or full Edward Green?) or full Rick?

I wear full eg now. If I were dating I would definitely wear full APC or something inoffensive like that. It's like showing up for a date in an old lancia Delta vs. a sensible 3 series

Jesus, they have wooden pocket squares in case you want to match your wooden tie to your wooden square to your wooden lapel flower to your wood-brimmed fedora. Complete with folding instructions!:

How real is the speculation that Raf is going to takeover at Calvin Klein? If he is so bummed out about the current fashion schedule and everything how is CK going to be any better? I'm genuinely asking, I don't know enough about these things.
Overhauling CK actually seems right up Hedi's alley.
