    I wore a hanes t-shirt, levis, and clarks last night and got multiple compliments, lol. got into a conversation with a freshman about denim which was a little weird, but kind of cool at the same time.

    Most people are far more likely to receive approval and acceptance from others when wearing well fitting Levi's and t-shirt as opposed to many of the designer-y costumes promoted here. Perhaps your other outfits involving higher end brands are coming off as too try hard and/or awkward?

    Most people will immediately notice pieces sporting a non-conforming style, but they will not consciously notice a high quality conforming style. Yet the higher quality fabrics truly do look better in person. Thus wearing high quality pieces in a conforming style is the easiest way to get people thinking you look good with minimal skill/effort. But the more non-conforming your clothing, the more you will be noticed and thus the more critically you will be judged.

    Wearing conforming clothing provides you the advantage of being held to a lower standard. Thus if you ace a conforming style, most others will think you look great (even if your overall style is a bit bland).

    It's in assisted living right now, we've been supplanted by a new crop of Clarks db wearers, special flower threads starters.

    I honestly forget to even check the actual forums most times I stop here because of that stupid landing page. I just end up checking the new posts in threads I've posted in and move along.

    I miss the old days when people would shit all over special flower threads. It seems like 90% of threads now are just retarded noobs asking retarded questions and other retarded noobs giving retarded answers. It's like an internet version of the human caterpillar.

    This, pretty much. Browsing is a really unpleasant experience.

    I would, but given how un-sticky-like the stickies are, it's not hard to miss them. Model bombing threaks was a good period though
