    There's a lot of cussing and foul language on the streetwear forum. I don't know why it's even tolerated. The objectives of newb posters between the two seem obvious enough: to look good for girls vs. to look good for the job.

    can somebody please explain to me dries, MMM, KVA, and Patrick Ervell? I think they look cool but don't really "get" what the "idea" behind a lot of them are.
    .


    exactly. margiela is sly, smirking, dirty irreverence. thematically

    yup that's how i think of mmm.

    Ervell, it's kinda sporty, and casual and young. Kinda simplistic, in a boyish fun sort of way. almost the opposite of margiela. I can't imagine an old man wearing ervell (though i'm sure it can be done).

    don't know much about the others, but KVA seems to be futuristic from what i've seen

    Das Racist/Boy Crisis started at Wesleyan (they, along with MGMT, graduated the year before I got there). Their members were part of the hipster cokehead co-ed frat so they came back to play a lot. (Boy Crisis was pretty good, but Das Racist was unlistenable live. At least, the shitty student "sound collective" couldn't mix them right).

    But yeah, DR is pretty great until you listen to both Sit Down, Man and Shut Up, Dude, and a bunch of their other material and you kind of start to notice that they like to recycle a lot of their more clever stuff. I'm not sure whether they've got staying power (considering that, as MC's, they're only kind of okay)

    I personally liked boy crisis a lot more because it was more danceable.

    It's goofy hipster rap, and I think they're all either Indian or Hispanic? And as GN has noted from Wesleyan, lol didn't know that, kind of awesome.

    Thanks for talking about Das Racist because I now have that fucking combination pizza hut and taco bell song stuck in my head. I thought I had exorcised that demon a year and a half ago.

    I've decided I have too much free time on my hands, so if any of you non-US dudes need a proxy for something online, PM me. I make regular trips to the post office for my eBay/Half.com affairs, so it wouldn't be a hassle. //shill

    I like MoK to joke that that's one of his pre swag fits

    But the inception is complete

    I hope and pray that dude has a car to match the jacket (that isn't a 400i)

    By the time Bushwick is gentrified enough for hipsters to consider Bed-Stuy, they'll have given up on NYC and ironically moved to East Meadow.
