    I think I've seen homeless people here in New York with those same pants and untucked shirt from a few seasons ago. They got them through salvation army.

    Marketing and perception are truly something to behold. Branding can convince people that anything looks good!

    Wrong. The look he was trying to go for was succesfully achieved. I don´t think you understand the appeal of dressing like that.
    Someone stated before that this look could be to try to hide one´s figure. I don´t see it that way. Most of the guys who wear a lot of yohji´s looser fit on SW&D are normal looking/slim guys. I´d give that look a try if I could afford a few Yohji pieces, and I´m a slender guy.

    The natural method takes 65 years--half of each year wearing socks to buff away all ankle hair, and the other half year tanning the bare ankles. Long distance road cycling is also a big help, but chain mishaps can leave unsightly scars that take years to tan over. All-in-all, I recommend:

    People who disagree with you on matters this completely subjective aren't "wrong". Lighten up.



    :facepalm: Someone should tell you what happens when you assume. (Or, as you would say, "Wrong.")

    Regardless, your friend's argument that, basically, we don't like it because we don't appreciate the brands he is wearing... well, you're repeating it, and it still doesn't hold water. There are plenty of ways to wear Yamamoto. Full-on slob isn't the only one.

    Acecow, who are showing off your rather fit body to at your opera concerts and fancy restaurants? I would think you would prefer some flowing Yohji Yamamoto to conceal your figure rather than make all the high society ladies swoon and cause an upset.

    what ? i said good taste + knowledge [of certain aesthetics] along with familiarity with the brands would help one understand what i am wearing, come on, if i was trying to name drop you think i would use yohji and damir hah 99.99% of people probably have no clue what that is, how can this be marketing hype when yohji in particular is not even marketed ... in any case, to those who think i've done it wrong, i suspect this is down to your perceptions of how wide cuts should be rather than anything inherently wrong with my fit--there are a couple of yohji enthusiasts on SF that have decades of experience and can probably assure of this.

    tl;dr: style is subjective. In other breaking news, earth still rotates around sun. More at 11.

    WE sorta had this argument in MC casual last week. Everyone's free to read all 200+ posts of that saga if they want.

    I dont care if you were doing double backflips while juggling as well Bud. It still looks horrible, why, because nothing fits, and the basis of all style is that the clothing fits.

    Yohji WTMB (whoever that may be) needs to go for immediate trauma debriefing and subsequent re-programming.
