    hate and love in the same post - do not know how you do it. fashion fades but style is forever, b. that shit most of you kids wear won't look good in 5 years but stylish motherfuckers in mc know what time it is. some shit never goes out of style but things go out of fashion regularly. previous level shit.

    yes it's sf and alcatraz. i grew up in SF [​IMG] x 10000000


    thats what those MC idiots would have you believe. 3/4 of their suits will be unwearable at some point in the near future. just like the broad shouldered oversized mens suiting of the 80s is completely whack nowadays.

    fashion isnt finite. id say its cyclical. designer concepts may appear more fast paced than all other types of clothing because each collection is strongly themed. however, the concepts all trickle down to the mass-market brands over the following 6-18 months through "intellectual property theft."

    Lanvin has been doing raw edges on luxe fabrics for ages. right now you go in jcrew and all the womens stuff is sequined silks or poly's with raw edges. Miranda in The Devil Wears Prada explained this phenomenon well once.

    good designer stuff is like a good music album. the songs in the album usually follow a theme/mood and you can listen to it 15 years later and its still awesome. sure the radio stations might not be playing it but it doesnt mean its bad.

    fast-fashion/mass-market is like one-hit wonders.

    Yo dude you know those are 4 inch right? They put the wrong image....

    4 inches are definitely wearable, just a big difference from what is shown in your pic.

    I think that length is good if you do cropped slim pants. I don't dig the uber short jacket long jeans look. For those jeans I think something that at least covers half yer arse is better. IMO. But this is from someone who poasts on MC and generally subscribes to the sprezz formal/weekday+workwear/tbrowne/jcrew informal aesthetics, so you should frame my opinion based on that.
