Dior homme - Page 2  

post #16 of 31
I'm 28 and wouldn't consider myself a traditionalist in terms of dress, but do value quality of construction and longevity of style over the "newest" fashion designs that may be out of style within a season.

LA GUY, you misunderstand me. My blazer comment was in reference to someone's post on another thread (i think you were on it too) about jackets with jeans looking stupid unless it was a courduroy blazer with "loose-fitting 501's" i'm not saying blazers aren't "hip". i personally like tweeds and i realize fashionable heads scour thrift stores and markets for these--i do too. i would also even fuck with a pair of lobbs in like 10 years. i'm saying that alot of peeps on here are not really rocking watanabe blazers and dior-homme high tops, so i'm getting the response i deserve for posting here.

How would one proceed to fuck a pair of John Lobb's? Maybe if you fuck one of the sales associates, that I could comprehend...but sexual intercourse with a pair of shoes is simply inconceivable. Alas, I must ask (curiosity has gotten the better of me): how does one go about engaging in such an action (eh, fucking the shoe, not the sales associate)? Jon.

haha, imageWIS, you're definitely too old to be clicking on the dior-homme link i'm afraid. i imagine you're somewhat overweight, bald and you live out your fashion fantasies on the internet because they don't make hot shit in your size. you prolly wear abercrombie and bitch and old navy. i said i would "fuck with". i'm not going to translate slang for you. get back to your middle-management position.

Oh, man... welcome to the monkeyhouse, @riss. Not everyone in FLA retired there. Your opinions are welcome, derision less so.

I believe Jon is in his early 20's as well, so your colorful imagining of him is nothing more than that. Further, he has been a member here a lot longer than you (apparently you are "hip" enough to read the Times), and is also more civil. I suggest you pipe down the gunslinger routine if you wish to participate here, as that kind of stuff won't be tolerated. Regards, AJL

haha, if you read his post its antagonistic towards me. i was simply saying in my initial post that i like slimane's stuff. i did read about this in the times and i figured i'd check it out. its pretty much what i expected it to be. why would i care how long he's been a member? he's from florida and prolly doesn't have a clue. you have a cartoon icon. you should be in that "what are you wearing?" post.

@riss, You are welcome here. Ad hominem attacks are not. I've read the thread and feel you're taking comments made about Slimane and Dior Homme personally. They are comments about his clothes, not attacks on you.

Yeah, I wouldn't say this forum would be the greatest resource for Dior Homme information. There is defintely going to be a bias against such designer suits/items and that bias will (and clearly has) made its way into the thread. Understand that some people do not like designer items period and will remind people of their disdain for them in ever single thread...then go into the issues that people who buy designerwear have and the image they want to convey to the masses by wearing such brands......That's STILL no reason to get snippy with other board members..... Also, don't worry about someone calling you a anorexic male or a drug addict simply because you can wear Dior Homme. Oddly, (and a bit off topic) what's with all the constant attacks of thinner people these days? Anyways, it's become acceptable and encouraged to be fat in America (and the clothing reflects this) so take those comments from other forum members or people in the world with a grain of salt...... The cuts on Dior are severe and unforgiving and Hedi has managed to do some good work at Dior. As someone who is quite muscular, it's not an option for me, but I can appreciate the designs and style. My only thing is some of the items tend to be overstyled...and now they have Dior IPOD cases.....  Some of the stuff is downright silly. I agree about the McQueen line, I have been impressed so far. You may also like V&R, Cloak, Ann D (love her stuff&#33 and Dolce and Gabbana..... Don't knock the cord blazers either...

hey, i appreciate your comments, man. i really don't understand the attacks on thinner people either, it seems to me that most designer menswear, though not necessarily as skinny as lang or dior is a) european and b) for the taller/more slender male anyway. was living in france last year and the french tend to be thin and wear clothes to emphasize this, which i personally prefer.

I'm tired of you young punks making fun of my weight, damnit. Seriously though, If you did not understand my post, are obviously less familiar with the use of sarcasm, the English language or both. May you please elaborate as to what you consider hot shit? I consider Kiton, for instance "hot shit" (other than freshly dropped feces), but seeing as you were unaware as to what Kiton was (being the "hip" fashion-savvy New Yorker that you pose yourself out to be), how could you stipulate to myself or anyone else on the forum for that matter that, which you are unable to make a valid defense over due to your faux-sartorial-erudition. I would be amazed if you could even approach a middle-management position (on your own merits). And for your information (I guess "FYI" to you) if you check out the "HOF: What are you wearing right now?" thread, you will see several of my posts and you can judge for yourself. As well, you can check out my new shoes (which is of course further proof that I don't own / can wear "hot shit"), designed and made by both an unpopular company and unpopular designer: Y-3 Jon. P.S. What is "prolly"? P.P.S. Walk into Lobb in London and tell the sales associate that you wish to "fuck with" a pair of their shoes, see what kind of attention you get.

The reason I mention his tenure is that he has a track record here while you do not. It is like walking into someone's house who you've just met, and proceeding to critique their choice of furnishings, artwork, etc.--it's inappropriate. If you've come here just for a few laughs or to reconfirm what you already know to be true, then this probably isn't the place for you. However if you want to pick up a few style pointers from some pretty knowledgable folks, stick around. AJL

Tangent, but bear with me. Actually, French fashion is, interestingly enough, not body conscious, unlike Italian brands like Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Gucci, etc... which are very much about emphasizing the male or female form, albeit in different ways. Popular French brands like A.P.C. and Agnes B., for example, espouse a long, narrow, androgynous shape. The closest Italian equivalent is Prada. IMHO, and I am neither a fashion genius or visionary, Hedi Slimane's aesthetic is typically French. Yes, you have to be super skinny to wear his designs, but that is only because most fat people are not particularly suited to wearing clothes based on straight lines. @riss, it's nice to have someone else who rocks designer style on the forum. But seriously, dial it down. It's just uncool to lose it everytime someone riles you.

ajl and la guy, points taken.  imagewis, "prolly" is slang for probably, i'm not going to continuously break things down for you.  furthermore, you're hardly in a position to get into a discussion on semantics, grammar, or language in general--your last post is riddled with typos and the like. also, you can minimize the webster's dictionary window that i'm sure you must have had open in order to string all those multi-syllabic words, which i'm sure you're unfamiliar with, together.  i sincerely doubt that you own any kiton, though i do believe you have plenty old navy.  i shop at barney's regularly and have seen it in there for quite some time. my other thread was simply posted in order to understand why so many people on style forum like it so much.  whether its well made or not, i wouldn't really consider it to be the "coolest" shit out there.  you don't exactly have to be waif-like to wear d-homme either.  brad pitt got married in d-homme and will smith has rocked it to the VMA's.  neither of these cats are anorexic.  finally, the fact that you think y-3's are "unpopular" betrays your ignorance.  y-3 is yammamoto's collaboration with ADIDAS for crying out loud.  adidas=popular=mainstream.  and forget that, even yamamoto by himself is pretty popular these days.  but i guess not down in florida, huh?
how could you stipulate to myself or anyone else on the forum for that matter that, which you are unable to make a valid defense over due to your faux-sartorial-erudition.
