    Pretty nice but not really SWD. I really like maroon/white/grey combo.

    Cheers, mates! That's three aussie posts in a row [​IMG]

    Yeh, I thought about posting in MC, but those guys are mostly twats and I figured TaT is more of a SWD brand, so decided to stay here.

    Sifr pima cotton sweats actually, so more friendly for tropical weather in Singapore, Sifr being a local brand (US 60 bucks for butter soft cotton sweats!)

    Lol I don't care how silly i look, i can rock that shit with swagz...wore drop crotch to a electro party and got mad chicks...seriously if you gonna wear contrived-looking clothes you got to have that "i dont give a fuck" swagz. Forreal.


    Oh shit, I need to look into some lighter drop crotch pants; my corpus sweats are a little much in Texas during the spring. You know if Sifr does any online sales?

    Yea, it looked good. I wore something similar but with more colors awhile back. I think i got mixed reviews on here as well. Keep on keepin' on. Fun to mix it up occasionally

    I think you would have had good reviews in MC. I like the fit.

    Your imagination has darn gone and fucked you in your fat pimply ass again, you just don't learn homey. This looks great and much more wearable than the SoCal's styled by Stevie Wonder for Obi Wan Kenobi ensembles of late.

    +infinity.

    I think that the leggings would look better (on Flame) if they were long and bunched up instead of being cut short like that. I feel like the bottom half lacks texture and it makes him look a bit short. Looks fine to me as is.

    But yeah, I don't get the love for SoCal's current style. If not for the labels, he'd get no praise. It seems so ironic that a board so focused on looking good at minimal cost would fap fap fap over the gaudy spending he represents.

    Moo - I'd prefer that outfit more without such an awkward cuff (hem your jeans!), but it's not bad by any means.
    How it that an awkard cuff? The single thin cuff is awesome.
    A thicker cuff would compliment the thicker midriff, "serious".
    dunno, cuff looks fine to me, although larger would be better as Rye says. I cuff my jeans so I am biased.
    Thanks guys. [​IMG] So what's the consensus? I am a jean newbie, really, as these GAP 1969 Authentics are my only raw jean (and the only jean I wear now). They came "pre-cuffed" and the length worked perfectly, so I just kept them like that. I don't really want a much larger (say 2") cuff. Should I re-cuff? Also, the jeans have a tag inside and I think it says something like "rinsed selvage" or something like that. I've worn the jeans for about 3 months with no washes - should I wash them now? Will I get any fades? I know these aren't truly raw/unwashed jeans like most on the forum, but will they still get fades?

    I'd go with the larger cuff, personally. Oh, and I'm a big fan of cricket and cricket jumpers, so big props on that! [​IMG]

    socal gets praise not because people like what he wears, but because he is super comfortable in what he wears and doesn't give a fuck

    I think that the "don't give a fuck" argument is stupid. If you don't give a fuck, you end up looking like my dad. Or an engineer. Or your local Best Buy manager. Everyone who seems stylish cares.

    I dunno so much about the others, but I like SoCal's stuff mainly because he seems to be having fun with fashion. I think that when you look at "Stylish people", you automatically differentiate that group into 2 subgroups. The first is comprised of people like Steve McQueen - he is really comfortable with a particular style. He has a very well formed self image. I'm like this - I've worn pretty much the same thing for over a decade now (but am much less cool than Steve McQueen was). Rye is like this. He sometimes comes up with outlandish stuff, but mainly, he is very comfortable with a particular set of silhouettes, color combinations, etc... Saucemaster was an extreme example of this. Actually, pretty much every straight guy I know who comes off stylish is in this group.

    The second group are guys like Justin. They like to play. I don't think that he pulls everything off, and I'm pretty sure that he knows this too, but he has fun pushing his boundaries and trying (really) different things. Me, I don't feel comfortable doing this, and it shows when I try. But there's no need to hate.
