Where is your style going? - Page 8

post #106 of 761
I've had an interesting sartorial journey. Started caring about the way I looked back in middle school when I began reading my brother's GQ and Details magazines, but got sucked into the neo-prep teenager and then the closely related fratty style up until my freshman year college. In my sophomore year, I skipped a generation and started investing in real clothes, with a lean towards "trad" staples. Now that I'm working on a collection of chinos, OCBDs, and loafers...not sure how else to evolve, but glad I found this wisdom early in my adulthood. The one constant is that I've always stayed more American in my clothing choices, but I also think I have two separate styles. The trad style for academic settings and then the cool city vibe for clubs and going out. I plan on never limiting myself to a single style, and open myself to anything that looks classical and non-trendy.

I'm really passionate about the romantic/poetic/elegant/medieval/vintage style, so I'm buying a bit of Ann Demeulemeester (favourite designer for me at the moment) and going to tons of op shops and vintage stores. I also practically live on eBay, looking for similar items. I also really like natural, subdued, delicate things, nothing too rigid/utilitarian, I pretty much no longer wear sneakers, tshirts or hoodies unless I'm in costume or exceptionally lazy when going to the milk bar.

This, but more trad than fop. I guess the same direction as my post last year indicated.

I'm moving away from an Americana/basic style towards a darker, more monochromatic color scheme with mostly black, grey, white, and a little blue. Robert Geller's F/W 08 and S/S 09 have really influenced my overall vision of what I want to head towards.

I can't deal with you Aussies and you alien language. Op Shop? Milk Bar? Learn to speak the Queen's English before you post on this board. For future reference, it's "thrift store" and "general store" or "corner store."

^^ Admit it. It's an op shop. Thrift store... PFFFT.

A kind of convenience store.

Where I come from, we don't say it either. It's only people who live in Victoria (rivalrously referred to as southerners by those of us living in superior northern regions). We like to insult each other over such differences

Op shop, however, is nation wide. On that, we stand united.

It's like a corner store or general store or deli. Only with a retarded name.

Sometimes the way people talk in England {or countries that still have the queen on their money and postage and such} makes me even more proud to be an American.

^^ Dont know if we should go there, but... what? Is that like "we showed those imperialist colonialists?" or analogue with "i get extra proud to be a sweed when I see how swarthy arabs are"?

There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.
