    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    lots of old threads very worth reading and not easily discovered via the google customs search tool. would it be a good idea to have a hub thread where people can post links to old threads they enjoyed reading (but don't necessary want to necrobump)?

    what i mean is while you might miss out on certain items (eg jil keyhole neck) there will always be shit you want to cop. whether juilius or whoever makes it.


    clothes is just clothes dude. holy grail and what not, there will always be more to buy, you'll always regret what you didnt buy, and whatever you did buy you get used to or even tired of

    or maybe some people just aren't interested in partying?

    going out and drinking with loud music and strangers is pretty much my idea of hell.

    oh ya, you're definitely right. Its just I have a certain "plan" that I have with what im buying so I don't wanna deviate from it.

    also, tween everything I said was serious. Feel free to try and troll me or whatever, lol.

    oh no, I do that, but its complicated. I've just gotten to a point where my pursuance of "style" has taken priority over everything besides school.

    I'm not trolling or saying you have to go to some frat party or anything.

    just... go outside?

    there's a whole world of objects and people right outside your door that will stimulate your senses wayyyy more than poring over some jpgs of leathers on yahoo japan will

    actually what the hell am i saying, if college is a time for experimenting and figuring out who you are there is perfectly good reason to spend a portion of your life doing what you're doing. maybe it'll work out maybe it won't.

    i sometimes wonder who i'm dressing up for and if I use clothing to fill a void (has always been an internal lurking suspicion)

    Though, i can't identify the void if there is one. but i just can't shake the feeling. I used to think I spent the most money and made the most frivolous purchases while I was "mad" for whatever reason and as a result of whatever trigger. But lately....things have just been good all around (family+g/f+work+life balance), yet, I'm spending like my acc't is connected to the US mint.

    if I didn't have a girlfriend who appreciates clothing and likes to discuss it, and help me take what we attempt and consider to be reasonably artful photography (using bare minimum stuff - i.e. 3g iphone and natural sunlight), I would probably lose a significant interest in dress/clothes.

    I think it was Lanes comment (..."dude i have no life") that spawned the thoughts and made me inquire, myself, why I do what I do, and who I do it for. LTRS I am not picking on Lane for his comment, but it caused me to think about this stuff for some reason (0). It makes me question – if I didn’t have a solid core group of friends (granted, none SF-styled by any stretch), a girl who encourages me to explore alternative fashion options that may not be available at the mall (I know, I only wear w+h, harhar [​IMG]) –--- would I possess the same enthusiasm and dedication to giving a crap what I look like.

    I enjoy waywt outings because they A) cause you to think more critically about your outfit that day, obviously - and thus, hopefully, consistently make you look better as a result. B) For major critiques or smaller comments on some of the more subtle nuances with respect to styling that I don't have the eye to catch (such as people commenting on my hair last night) C) Get out of the house and suburbs and into the city (which in addition to a lot of other plusses, e.g, eating, tend to be the areas with nice backdrops). D) Immediately determine what looks good and what does not (helps you determine what you may want to sell). e.g. If I take 10 shots of me wearing one shirt, and no one looks good/flattering...theres a sign.

    Has there been a thread that is specifically made for explaining when and why you started caring about dress (SW&D focused)? I think that would be an interesting topic.

    I see trolling mbok/yj as a model akin to building model trains or something

    ^ It's sort of uncomfortable, but I think for me, right now, I will definitely confess buying too much clothes—not only from a financial angle but also from a sort of Buddhist angle. I definitely buy more shit than I need and am definitely sometimes not as juiced by a purchase as I am hoping, even if it's something I'm buying that moment. There's a very small element of compulsion there. And I'd like to say, well, I'll just stop buying shit and only dress well with what I have—and that's what I'm trying to do—but I think that's not the 100% most skillful angle because the fact is that caring as much as I/we/you, slack tide do about how I/we dress is almost necessarily going to feed back into trying to derive more and longer-term happiness by buying lots of stuff than is really feasible.

    i use clothing to fill the emptiness in my soul...

    seriously there reaches a point where you have to accept that in the real world: nobody gives a shit how you look, what brands you wear or how much your clothing costs. there's a reason that bill gates and steve jobs dress like retards, it's because it's just totally irrelevant to everything.

    once you accept that and move you, you can view clothing as a hobby.

    ive also realized that i wear like 5% of my wardrobe. need to sell everything and move into a shed.
