It's not like you "need" belts. It's more like, they look awesome. I'm sorry you hate awesomeness.
Dude, Boxer is really fucking sloppy. APM doesn't even matter that much in SC2, in BW it did because it was all about being able to control your unites quicker and overall better than others. SC2 did away with a lot of the stuff that required high APM in BW. He is able to consistently lose games where he takes a great lead in the beginning due to simple mistakes (missing timings, not punishing his opponents, pushing too far). I am talking sloppy strictly relative to other pros; if you look at where Boxer was in BW and how he played vs. now, sloppy is the only way to describe it. Look at Nestea (also old), DRG, MC, etc. Their play is noticeably crisper and refined.
Nada is consistent, I'll give him that. He hasn't really done anything impressive, though. That's my point about old school BW players in SC2: they never really make it anywhere. They do cool things once in a while, but overall tournaments are dominated by lesser known BW players or just straight up newer people. I think that's a major reason why SC2 isn't doing well in Korea, too. There is just no reason for the popular players to switch over, and if you watched BW back in the day, would you believe that Zergbong is now considered the best player in the world?
isnt flash the best? or you mean zergbong is the best sc2
Let's set up some c&c red alert... probably best rts... wonder if it plays on my mac.
Zergbong (nestea) is considered the best in SC2
C'mon losers. Post crap about video games in entertainment and culture. Post cool stuff you've bought, here.
fucking nerds talking about video games
i own like 4 belts and can't remember last time i wore one with jeans or casually ahhahaa
I own two belts. I need some more. But they all need to be black.
MA + for washed black
Julius for super pitch black
Damir Doma has made some pretty cool belts, as has Ann Demeulemeester. CCP has some good models, but imo, his stuff can be more hit or miss.
Of course, if you want stuff that is more ornate, Ugo Cacciatoire (sp?) does a good job. Personally, I like Dries van Noten and Margiela for everyday wear, but neither probably have too much in your style. None of these are particularly inexpensive, but I think that belts are worth the money. Even the most expensive belt is $800 or so (barring some models by Hermes) and for good leather, finishing, and interesting detail, there is no other accessory that really can carry you everywhere. You can wear them in the summer, winter, in 100 or -30 degree weather, and it doesn't make a difference, If you are wearing black, they are not even seasonal.
Man I'm not paying $600 for an MA+ belt
I don't know...I just always end up spending my money on other items. Scarcity is a bitch. Out of curiosity, what do you think are the six essential belts?
Love the whiskey color. It's real leather and made in Italy.
I gotta ask - do you always tuck your shirt in? I really don't at this point, so I never wear belts (unless I'm wearing a suit or something, obviously, in which case I both tuck and wear a belt). I try to size my jeans so they'll stay up without one. If I did wear a belt, it wouldn't serve a function, and it would only be visible inasmuch as it would create an unsightly bulge at my waistline.
belt is less about being visible, but more as a means to accessorize, even if you nv tuck your shirt in.
instead of getting thick leather cowhide tanner unlucky, you can get those paper thin $5 h&m "leather" belt.
I guess I don't understand how it's accessorizing if it's not visible. I wouldn't consider underwear to be accessorizing, for example.
