Greetings. Long-time lurker, first time poster. I'll start out with some questions. You probably won't like me by the time I'm through.

What's the deal with white v-neck t-shirts? Some folks put these in their essentials lists, but I want to determine under what circumstances. My grandfather always wore one under his outer shirt. Are you using them, as I am accustomed, underneath button-ups and sweaters? Or are you rocking them as your "main" shirt? Please tell me we aren't using old man undershirts now as some sort of fashion-forward staple and thinking it is cool. When I see a guy out in public in a plain white t-shirt, especially v-neck, I always think, well that guy didn't finished getting dressed, or he must be going to the gym or to cut the grass. It looks like underwear, people. What gives?

Jeans - So the dark tight jeans like I remember kids making fun of when I was in grade school are now fashionable? And don't get me started on the cuffs. Are you really buying ridiculous inseams just so you can cuff them? Attention shoppers - it makes you look like a little kid.

You talk about the nuances of fit, and yet praise the unwashed, black, stacked and cuffed look that, to me, is completely anti-fit. I'm all for a dark straight-legged jean, but some of your WAYWT photos are hilarious with your denim man-tights and darling little cuffs.

So it seems the uniform here is a gray/white/black (maybe graphic) t-shirt, dark tight jeans, and blinding white sneakers. Oh, and maybe one of those juvenile hoodies with skulls on it like the the 6th graders down the street wear.

Really? Is that the best that the young fashion-forward community can come up with? I came here because someone said there were a lot of cool looks to sample. To me, Maharlika is just about the only one of you who posts photos that make me think, man, that is cool! As for most of the rest of you...yawn.

I don't think that styleforvm is a place you go to find cutting-edge fashion-forward avante-futuristic whatever-whatevs; it is more about altogether avoiding looking too much the victim, making it work with classic pieces without having to empty the coffers, while incorporating the more interesting offerings from the great beyond.

As deliciously naughty as that sounds, I'll pass. I'm not the style icon here, you guys are supposed to be. That's why I lurk - I want to educate myself and I'm constantly on the lookout for ideas I can incorporate. But this quest is frustrating because it seems like things have gotten really "uniform-y".

Uh, the people here aren't style icons, we're just people posting pictures of ourselves on the internet. It sounds to me you just wanted an excuse to bitch about something.

If we don't know how you dress as it is, why should we give a shit whether or not you think the people here dress poorly? For all we know, you look like garbage.
