    So where does caring about your wardrobe/appearance end and wearing a costume begin?

    Both those pictures show a bunch of contrived douches, I can't imagine how painful it must be hear a conversation from either group of wannabees. The guys on top are 200% more punch-able though.

    Always this shit again.

    Point is essentially wear dope shit and concern yourself less with relative dopiness of others

    I don't think we can help having likes and dislikes when looking at people. Without wanting to be prescriptive if I see a bunch of loafer wearing Pitti wankers or tweed nerds I probably won't look at them favourably, not that I'd think they're similar because they both suck.

    Oh and truly random fashion thought; my fav pair of jeans right now is a black pair of Levi514.

    Question: how much of a warmth difference is layering a down vest vs full sleeved down jacket under a leather going to make? Trying to figure out a way to keep wearing leather all winter without having to go crazy layering.

    This season's T-000 is basically the skinny jean fit I've been looking for forever (well it was Dior basically but Dior costs too much for me). Love it, really loose on top with a higher rise and not such a severe taper this time.

    ^ When I lived in Korea (Il-San), I was totally fine with winter with short/long sleeve t shirts+sweatshirts.
    I think a sweater or knit vest would be enough.

    Gotta agree with ceceo; I wear a hoodie under a heavy leather and that's good down to around 0C.

    Oh and Snowman I've heard good things about gorilla glue, though I think any strong glue would work.

    Can I get a second opinion on these? With navy laces?

    NDC Grudge boots for $279 on Gilt.

    Good enough of a deal that it's worth pulling the trigger?

    I like mine. They do have a substantial rubber sole nailed on over the leather if that bothers you. They call it 'winterkiller'.

    Doesn't bother me. I'd rather have something over the leather. I just can't tell if I should wait and try to find a better deal.

    I think I get what Pete's saying.

    I'm sure there's a genuine interest in clothes, but following some of these Tumblrs, you do get the impression that day-to-day life mostly consists of roaming the city and taking photographs of each other to later post online for the purpose of showing off the outfits. Contrast that with people who also have an interest in clothes, but only seem to capture them with a camera as an afterthought (i.e. quite a few of the posters in SW&D's WAYWT thread).

    You can argue that the latter group is still making some effort to be recognized or gain approval, but immortalizing their outfit is more of a side note to their day instead of the primary purpose.
