    that doesn't make sense, there's nothing ME about the clothes ? i'm not saying he should do as Thamanyah (middle man from the bazaar selling regular arab robes to financially irresponsible white victims) but what he and the article say doesn't seem to correspond to reality ? it does look clean. also Sharjah is a dump

    I dunno man, applying this sort of analytical mentality to clothes ends up being a horrible agglomeration of over-intellectualized nonsense, something for which another forum is made fun of for, and meticulous attention to frivolous details, something for which yet another sub-forum here is mocked. i know it's fok's thing but at least he keeps it in the domain of profiting/running this place. with that said, if you insist on carrying forth along this frivolous path, at least check out the best reference so you don't do useless polynomial regressions and miss hidden trends (like frequency of poast tiring people of your fits, preceding-proceeding fits that contextualize yours on the scale of baller, etc) and go with some type of bayesian approach, treat thumbs like a poisson RV or something like that, or maybe use some gaussian process or just treat it as a classification , svm for how sick it is.......

    anyway speaking of fok's thing, @LA Guy, will you have more than just meats and alcohol at the nov 7 thing or should i pack some crackers to enjoy for myself while the barbarians feast ??

    Furreal. The collection seems to touch way more explicitly on military themes than traditional middle eastern ones. Maybe we're supposed to read things like that grey collarless parka (which looks dope btw) as "robe inspired"? Then again I haven't seen any of the collection outside the interview. If I were to give him the benefit of the doubt, I'd say the reference lies in the clean flowiness of it all.

    It is kind of a bummer when he talks about de-militarizing ME clothing in western audiences' minds and then shows a collection full of very tame western-leaning cluths

    You mean, vegetarian stuff, or just lighter fare? We may have some vegetarian options, though I'm not sure that if you are not ovo/lacto, that they would work. Going with a rustic French thing, and you know.. looks of ovo and lacto. Can definitely take some suggestions though. It's in the budget.

    @the shah Honestly this was more of a fun little exercise than anything, I'm just a nerd and like thinking about shit like this :happy: And honestly to me this is less about analyzing clothes and more about analyzing forum behavior, and as a psychologist that's interesting!

    I thought about this a bit more and yes Poisson regression likely makes more sense than linear, but floor effects didn't seem to be that significant from eyeballing the data and fuggit I didn't want to open R for this . Autocorrelation sounds like a fun idea, though. How would classification work? Dope fit vs. not-dope fit?

    The more sedate Tyroler designs might just work. For now I'm searching for "Walkjacke" or "Walkwolle [x]" instead, gets you more regular looking stuff. Also heard good things about the brand Mufflon but it's more on the activewear side.


    Thanks. I think I'm going to order a pair soon, need to decide on the details.

    Yeah but you'd need some way to define dope, probably looking at the subsequent comments. No prob being a beard ;-) I also like Python more than R, not sure I have a good reason though.


    Haha I'm not too stressed just figure it's good to mention the event here once in a while so I'm not stuck in a line of mc robo poses

    but if you are taking suggestions, please some genmaicha , and kanoyama is really really good and I'm not ovolactowhatever!

    Ah, true that gets some better options! Might try to get something like that.... I think the one I used to have was from Geiger.


    Let me know how it turns out (i got these http://www.biomidi.fr/pantalon-de-t...oleskine-100-coton-sanfor-adolphe-lafont.html)

    Yeah, I love tea, so, for sure. So, from what you said, you are vegan? (as in, no ovo, no lacto?)

    what no i'm not vegan i eat sword-slaughtered grass fed meats drained of all blood sup @in stitches but really limit my consumption, not because it's unsustainable ecological practice or whatever hipster crap is regurgitated today but because it's addictive and probably not great for the colon. but trust that kanoyama will be a gastronomical adventure in wonderland

    I think the middle eastern part is the lenghtening + sandals (cool sandals btw) + softer colours + more relaxed torso.
