I don't think they're too slim, but there's something weird going on with your crotch

Taken together, both sentiments made me realize that perhaps the only truly sustainable idea in fashion is developing personal style.
Here’s what I mean: the current climate of fast fashion and, for many men, hypebeastiality (hehe!), favors the look over the wardrobe, the moment over the long term. But personal style, not fashion, holds the greatest reward: it allows you to invest in yourself, rather than in a bunch of ideas about who you could or should want to be. The wardrobe has somehow become the least considered part of fashion, in part because a lot of people you see in fashion are borrowing things rather than really owning and wearing and loving them, and in part because we have learned to love and rely on a culture of nonstop novelty. We’ve taught ourselves that our clothing can only bring a sense of joy the first time we wear it. But there are ways to train yourself to love something every time you put it on. The real test for me is: can I put it on, forget about it for most of the day, remember I’m wearing it at 4 pm, and grin? If the thing is really great—and I promise you this—people don’t think, “I can’t believe he’s wearing that jacket again.” They think about how cool it looks on you—and about how envious they are that you have a signature, that you dress like you really know yourself.
I don’t see Fila Disruptors in them at all. More like Visvim Skagway.
I have a hard time getting behind black sneakers with black soles. Maybe it's a childhood association, but I always associate all black sneakers with cheap, crappy, no brand sneakers from Zellers or wherever.
