    Jesus, what have I done...I'll try responding to everyone so as to not derail any further.
    I wonder if lance missed Uncontrol's WAYWT.
    Actually I assumed he was gay or in a band. Either way, it was so over the top I had to give him props.
    Lance is right, dudes are bitches these days and bitches agree. Let's get back on topic you queens.
    Ha, thanks. We're all suspect here just for frequenting this web board. I'm sure many of you have experienced some raised eyebrows and questions from ladyfriends when they find out about your "styleforum secret." If that doesn't clue you in about gender differences, I'm not sure what will.
    "De-masculinization" is the spearhead of the misogynist ethos. Just a couple days ago a guy who was hitting on my ladyfriend went off on a tangent about how I dress like a "fag" and that if she liked me she should just bang a woman.
    Nonsense. Just the mere fact that people here have used extreme masculine cliches to insult me is proof that masculinity has numerous negative associations in our culture. When women complain that there aren't any real men left in the world, it's no longer in the realm of your imaginary misogynist ethos. It's a legitimate problem worth looking into.
    Retarded claptrap.
    This is beyond ridiculous. The fact that you play the Sociologist card a couple responses later makes it even more mind-numbing. It's as if you've never really studied Sociology, but want to pay lip service to the discipline as if show you have some sort of authority on the topic. You'd be lucky to find a Sociologist that would go along with what you said.
    "Play the sociologist card?" I was offering the angle of where I'm coming from. I like to look at cultural and sexual differences and try to understand certain things from an evolutionary point of view. Clothes have evolved primarily to help attract the opposite sex and to help protect us from the elements since shedding our fleece thousands of years ago. Every single one of you dress to impress the opposite (or same) sex, whether or not you are in a relationship, consciously aware or not. My comment that you were so offended by might be politically incorrect, but hey, it does reflect what is accepted in our culture. Gay dudes dressing in drag and people in a band are given a free pass.
    Sorry, have to comment here: Why are you so concerned with the public's exposure to androgyny? Isn't it easier to lose muscle than gain it? get to work fella, less weights more anxiety and you'll be like the rest of us in no time.
    I'm really sure I follow you here, but to answer your question I think it sends the wrong message to the public. Hammering feminized males into the public consciousness is akin to hammering the public with images of extremely thin and impossible ideals of beautiful women. The message to women is usually "you are not pretty enough - buy more cosmetics and get this surgery so you can be pretty" and the message to men now is becoming "being masculine is not good, you need to get rid of your masculinity and be more like women."
    Honestly, I don't agree with most of what LK is saying here, but if he has this particular perspective on clothing, let him dress how he likes. If he makes a comment about your outfit, you know the perspective it's coming from and can read it accordingly. I don't see why the multi-page drama has to continue.
    Thank you.
    Shit guys, woman have been eating and sleeping for a long while now too, I guess we can't do that without being feminine.
    More idiocy. Styleforum logic courtesy of the new guy.
    Centuries, in fact. The problem with your post is this MORE business. It may very well be true that fashion is making men androgynous but how has this been more or less what has already existed?
    Now this is a good point. Great question.
    That's true. It's all relative. The glam rock thing is pretty fascinating to me as well as the victorian era. But glam was really just an experimental fad for rockstars. Are men who dress like that these days taken seriously? Men have long been users of cosmetics but that realm has always been a predominantly female thing, for sure. But yes, you do have to take current social norms into consideration.

    Whoah now. You can hold whatever opinion on this you want, but do not start dragging in lazy pseudoscience pop psych and pretend anthropology into this. Your analysis of clothing is simply wrong. Fashion is a very complex social phenomenon, and your reduction isn't so much vulgar as it is wildly speculative and spectacularly unscientific. I'm not even going to start on evolutionary psychology, which is really just a mystical religion. That covered, I hated chrono's outfit, but for different reasons. It does have feminine element to it that is mildly ridiculous, but more broadly, it was accidental hipster self parody.

    dont know if youre joking or not, but kitonbrioni is in my internet style top 3 of all time...(other two being runner from tfs and philip nod from SZ). They've been my biggest source of inspiration since i started browsing fashion forums.

    This has me curious, because I can't find much of anything redeeming about KB's style, other than the fact that he owns some nice items. What is inspirational about it to you??

    Every single day he photographically catalogues his clothing for that day and systematically posts it around several internet forums. The fact that nearly none of it fits well is beside the point.

    Plus, he suggested Fantasy Shoe League, which everyone should have jumped on.

    You're kidding right? Do you not get that rolling pants, tight pants/leggings, are unisex? Both those things have been coming in and out of fashion for men, forever. All one needs to do is "find more posts by lance konami" to see how preoccupied with being masculine you are. It's a constant theme in most of your posts. It would lead me to believe that you are either overcompensating, or you've been reading too much of the shit written about in 'The Game.'

    Disagree with lance all you like— I certainly do— but learn what a logical fallacy is first.
