    We do this exercise like every 6 months and it's pointless.

    Fuuma made a good post but in the end it comes down to taking the time and effort to figure out what you like.

    Otherwise you may as well just pay Alpha M.

    I think the draw is not in learning "what to buy" but in pulling on what we have - a stylish, knowledgable, and ultimately really interesting and really differentiated user base. A glimpse into the closet, if you will. I'd love to read that from zissou, parker, ghostface, etc.; these dudes who do such a good job of mixing clever buys alongside old and new pieces.

    True, that does sound interesting. I just assumed it would be another coplist but that sounds much more fun.

    The other thing that will need to be careful avoided is the almost inherent narcissism involved in those types of topics. Obviously you can't completely separate person from clothes but just something to be aware of.

    Do you know what narcissism means?

    Not sure I'm following you here - I think that the (very) short list of people I named above (there are others, of course) do a good job of understanding that the way they dress is not the way that everyone wants or "needs" to dress - which is why I think they're some of our best posters. Is that what you meant?

    Not really, bit yeah those posters are generally fine.

    Just talking about the self-gratifying way some of those types of posts happen. Makes for bad reading. The thumb button does not help matters.

    Just want it to be ideas-focused rather than user-focused as much as possible. I hope you understand. Just something to keep in mind.

    The $5k wardrobe thread had really nice posts from Fuuma and Drew.

    I've always thought CAVEMEN to be pretty terrible. I mean, they have some pretty pictures, but :uhoh:

    Gosh, mixed emotions on that. The guy is obviously an enthusiast and he's trying. Take a look at his group photos with other men and he's Dhaka's dapperest. He owns a lot of clothes, but most are ill-fitting and dull. There are some shots of him meeting his cutter working on his next suit; we see the same problems repeated again and again, so he isn't being well served. Looking at some of his photos from 2012 his camera was working then, but in 3 more years of posting daily his style hasn't improved and his photos are worse.

    This one boggles my mind.

    Just like the building he's standing in front of looks quite architectural.
