    They're clearly making them into the shape of swastikas. :foo:

    This is kinda random(thought) but it's been on my mind for a while.

    From what I've noticed, regardless of factors such as class and race, it is the older guys who are more likely to tuck in their tee's/shirts/polos than the younger folk. It really seems that the older you are the more liklier you are to be rocking a look that involves tucking into your pants. I don't mind that whole aesthetic but it isn't something I really care for personally.

    Now the question is: Are the older guys doing this because they're from an era where this was more common for people of all ages, or is this something you do as you grow older and become more conservative. I'm wondering if us young whippersnappers will inevitably start to prefer the same high rise trousers with shit tucked in.

    I prefer to tuck because it looks better on my short, stubby legs.

    I prefer to tuck because it looks great on my perfectly proportioned slender yet muscled frame.

    spoiler alert man!!


    also, with all this talk about samples, some of you guys should check out "nardwaur" from mtv. he does his homework when he interviews ppl, really impressive imo.

    nardwaur is so clutch for interviews. he always pulls out some random fact that the artist vaguely knew/remembered.

    Serially, I really like that jacket but it's bananas at 650 or whatever. Having handled both I think that Nau makes better pieces and cheaper (albeit in China).

    Your statement is factually accurate but I see nothing (meaningfully) innovative, interesting, or artistic (and certainly not "desirable") about the photo/clothing.

    IMO Thom Browne gets far too much credit for doing very little. He is also the guy behind the three-legged suit:

    Any thoughts as to what constitutes "young" and "old" in this case? I sometimes get the feeling I'm on the older side of SW&D posters at a shade short of 30.

    Also, I tend to go untucked to even out my proportions, since I have long legs and I'm relatively short-waisted.

    His runway shows are a far cry from the collections that actually get produced. Their meant as attention-grabbing spectacle, little else. In that vein, I think they're awesome
