    you are very verbose.

    the "not notice you in NYC" was meant as a compliment, I do not dress to obviously stand out. My comment on the boots (and RO and the other shoes posted in SW&D) was not a comment on quality, just one on aesthetics which is obviously a personal issue. In terms of iammatt and vox, keep in mind what they spend on their wardrobes and how it is acquired. While I think it is harder to pull off SW&D fits, it can be pulled off much cheaper (yes, I know the high prices of alot of the brands there). Look at the Street Etiquette guys, an equivalent of the SE guys in MC would look really bad for the most part. Its hard to make a $300-500 full on MC outfit look very good, not impossible, but very, very hard. Not saying that vox/iammatt only look good because of their budgets, as there is a high degree of taste in both, just that to look similar to that requires money and access to certain people.

    I don't understand why anyone would tuck their pants into their boots if they're not forced to by AR 670-1 or a similar regulation.

    These are much more comfortable.

    does your lack of understanding make it an illegitimate aesthetic to aim for ? probably not...


    excuse the verbiage, i get fast fingers of fury after having coffee ... i agree it's easy to make casual fits look good even on the cheap (unfortunately the mc take on casual can be a rape and torment of all senses, for the most part, though an mc casual fit can still look fantastic -- in fact there are a few that do go for exactly that in swd) and it's quite easy to see the distinction in price when going from one side to the other, especially when it comes to footwear collections. there's even a thread on how to do it well with little expense there. ultra $$$ fits are rather rare, perhaps more common in another forum dedicated to darker designers anyway. so 100% agreed on the bolded, and I still think you've all lost a great contributor with hesstillmatt not being active in here anymore.

    Seems to me that SW&D understanding of style and fashion is much closer to a woman's mindset.

    This is a stupid argument. Let them play; let us play. We think they look foolish. They think we look like old men. And the cycle continues…

    is it actually. at least it is for me :eek:

    i like to see the new collections each season. while i dont jump on every trend like women (im just assuming here) i can still appreciate them.

    edit: fwiw there are a few posters that cross-post on swd that look great!! NOBD, Parker, MOK and Urban to name a few.

    i was going to write a legitimate reply, acecow, but it's become increasingly clear that you're just a bovine troll with no sense of what a style forum is for. i refuse to believe you are in any way representative of MC but just a sad vocal outlier.

    Careful now, some of those beautiful women at the organ concerts you pine for might now take kindly to sexist remarks.

    I'm a well-known sexist.


    No worries, this is all in good fun for me, as long as people don't get personal. I just have some time to kill on this and I do. I'll gladly listen to your opinion if it's an actual opinion and not just getting your panties in a bunch and trying to offend me. Which is impossible over the internet anyway.

    I think the European high civilisations viewed the draped clothing of Greece, and Minoan culture as an emblem of civilization and disdained trousers (Scythian) as the mark of barbarians for a long period.
    Maybe interesting to know is that certain types trousers were known in South Asia for a long period. A famous example are jodhpurs, that are actually a product of an ancient type of trouser. Now ofcourse commonly used for horse riding.

    Yeah, acecow, I'm not sure if you're legitimately interested in intelligent responses because if you are it isn't really coming off that way, you might want to tone down the snark a little bit.

    As far as women's fashion compared to a lot of SW&D, a lot of women I know really pay attention to trends (that's SO hot for spring) while I've never seen anyone do so on SF that I can recall. There's a lot of stuff from 10+ years ago that I'd absolutely love to own; it's more like MC in that regard.

    Though in the sense of experimenting with shape, fit, etc; definitely.

    There are things from 10+ years ago that women would love to own. Chanel purses come to mind, or classic dresses/shoes/boots, etc. At the same time women are keenly aware of brands and designers and often judge each other's outfits based on that. Seems to me that that's what a lot of SW&D people are doing. The similarities don't stop there, though that's the main one.

    By the way, I don't speak for all MC, only myself. And I am legitimately interested and prepared to hold a reasonable discussion. However, many people's responses leave me little room to maneuver, as they intentionally twist my words and try to offend me instead of logically arguing.
