My thoughts on the posters in this forum

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I been lurking for more than a year now, and decided to jump in and post. My feeling on this post, is that most in this forum are very knowledgeable and in the know when it comes to fashon. However, i notice that each individual in this forum belong to certain segments in the fashion spectrum. I noticed there are posters on this board take a page out of Flusser's book and wear the typical fashion of Brioni suits, Patek watches, and such. And Then there are people like Euro Interloper, who tend to follow more of the fashions of Paris, Milan, and such and follows more of the Haute couture culture. Then there are those, Like La Guy, who is in the know when it comes to obscure labels, street wear, and such, while maintaining and utilizing a grasp of the other types of fashion out there. I dont mean to generalize here, becasue im sure most in this board have versatile tastes in clothing andl wear what we want with no regard for a certain "image" or boundries. Many of us all fit into those three examples i listed above. However, we still favor a certain "look" more than others. For example, I love all types of clothings from Broni to marc jacobs to gucci to those obscure labels you only find in soho and Fred Segal. However, if i had to choose only one certain "look" given my point and sitatuion in life (college student and into creative design), i would rather choose the casual, street look; picking rare pair of Nike Dunks over ferregamo loafers, rogan jeans over cashmere Kiton Pants, and a silk gucci bomber over a brioni wool sportcoat. And you know what, this could all change 15 years from now. What do you guys think...Am i fair in making an assesment of you all...Besides Im new, so what the hell do i know

Hmmm, well I can't remember Flusser pushing Brioni and Patek but anyhow, if that is typical then I want to be typical so I can own a Patek (For a short while that is until I sold it for lotsa money.)

Sure, probably. You can generalize anything. I like action movies over horror movies... generally. Does it matter, though? We like what we like, that may change over time. I think you answered your own question.

i just goes to show that everyone has their own style and tastes

I think it is unfair to place someone in one single category. Profession dictates a lot. I for one must dress in the "Flusser" style for work. However, come night time or the weekends, you will not find a hint of Brioni, Patek, or otherwise on me. At that time, I prefer the "Haute couture culture." I am sure that others feel/dress the same.... for the place, audience, and event. Not because of a category they fit in.

I think that while the categories may be criticized as being overly broad, they nonetheless illustrate the diversity of the forum membership. Some of us are younger, some older. Some have more conservative, and some, more liberal, tendencies.

My guess is that you could somewhat correlate tastes with age. As I get older, my tastes are morphing into a more conservative style. At my age, I would feel silly wearing some of the trendier couture and street styles (and my wife and kids would mock me.)

...and some of are down-right broke college folks. That's my category.

I agree with taste correlating somewhat with age. Although my fashion sense has always been a bit conservative and "dressy," my wardrobe definitely reflects my academic and professional background (school, work, followed by more school, rinse, repeat). For example, even though I owe the "gov-ment" a lot of cash, I still need to wear a shirt, tie, and slacks for my preceptorships... oh, and then I have the weekend wardrobe for lounges, bars, theater, etc. Good luck to the college guys. Always buy quality, you might find yourself wearing high school shirts to your first job (I still wear my original pair of Cole Haan loafers). norcal

I just like looking nice, and appreciate fine clothing. I like a WIDE variety. I'm just as comfortable in a t shirt, jeans and sandals (that all fit the way I like of course) as I am in a suit and tie. I tend to like more classic looking things (Zegna, Purple Label, etc.) than 'current' (Prada, Boss, Gucci), but there are pieces I could pick from the latter that I love. I certainly don't fall into the category of Flusser-ite... I can't afford to
