    "This is not the same as MC, where despite the ribbing we often get the clothes we wear are almost always never fascimiles of things done long ago"

    (10?)

    "Being, well - avant garde - craft often takes a backseat to art, things are not made to last, the taking of novelty as a self-evident plus engenders an inevitable (over)reliance on the seasonal cycle with designer/brand-driven trends/fads is to me - which is to me, its bête noire."

    Except that you can go back and look at a Pierre Cardin dress or an old Comme des Garcons collection and it still feels fresh and interesting. There's always a period of backlash - I have a hard time stomaching most late 80s/90s high fashion - but even though the 'things are not made to last' (which does a really impressive job of underselling the amount of artisanship that goes into, e.g., a Burton-era McQueen dress), their appeal, and often even their shock value and sense of cool, is still there.

    tldr MC is full of tools but to quote LeVar, you don't have to take my word for it

    Makeshift, that post was pretty impressive, huh? It was so... avant garde.

    Why are the ads taking up 1/3 of my screen real estate?

    They're making me want to go to Styleguise (10).

    ^I think that will be the inevitable result.

    I will probably quit forums as a whole and just concentrate on my blog, maybe with some guest contributors.

    Fuuma had a great quote I wish I could find talking about something being so eclectic there was never a trend it just became that wearer's style. That's what most of our stuff is like over here, guys on the other side don't really have a firm grasp of what swd is about it seems they just clicked a few threads and looked at a few images to draw their conclusion. They're the IT guys of clothing, they like a template and don't deviate from it. They are not the creative type despite how much formulaic sprezz they try to incorporate or italians they try to mimic. Fashion terrifies them and they are intimidated by it so they feel the need to place themselves about it by touting the adjectives "timeless" and "classic" within their circle jerk to describe their style and make themselves feel better wishing they could be synthese in a moto at the bar for a day picking up any girl they please.

    This thread is like trying to explain love to a robot.

    Summed up the entire thread in one sentence.

    Stupid question, but can you return stuff you ordered online from Barney's to a brick & mortar location, or do you have to mail it back to them?
