    (who besides maybe socal owns a $600 sweater?)

    Honestly I take most advice around here with a grain of salt because people praise things like that zip apart coat that socal posted a few pages back. I think it looks hideous and those high fashion styles would be completely out of place with my locations, crowd, personal style, and budget. I avoid superfuture like the plague because it seems like everything non-designer is consider ugly as sin.

    Dammit. PEOPLE. QUIT ASKING OTHERS TO DRESS YOU. Members will help you but show some damn initiative. Communist cow- The other guy meant go to www.honestforum.com and post there. Would probably suit you better he suggested. I agree since you don't seem to want to put much effort into anything and don't really understand why people buy things they do here, nor do you seem to appreciate design. All those clothes are ugly, fit poorly, and lord knows what the fabrics are like. You obviously don't understand this forum or superfuture and you've been reading since may? C'mon, man. Fashion/clothing/looking good isn't that hard. Hell, if whodini can manage, that should provide enough hope for everyone [​IMG]

    you criticize a yohji coat that is: a. a runway piece (so its purposefully exaggerated), b. totally normal looking when not zipped out and c. purchased by socal2nyc in nyc yet buy guess western shirts.

    you just blew my mind

    I've been posting mainly in the WAYWT thread where people seem to post some clothes that look reasonable. It seemed like SF was purely designer and this place was partially designer and partially non-designer from what I've seen in that thread. I wouldn't ask people to dress me if people gave some reasonable fucking critiques. "Thats Ugly" does not give any sort of point in the right direction. Saying something like "You need to buy shirts that are smaller in the chest/arms" is helpful. This is a pretty reasonable response and doesn't contain any "OMG western shirts LAWL +1".
    Is something like that so hard to type?

    Really? Hmm... Maybe we need to revisit a some of your recent fits, mainly one in particular. Say, we'll make it a game so that the kids at home can play along, too: [​IMG]+[​IMG]+[​IMG]+[​IMG]= Any guesses???

    I think I'd be doing the same if I'd just made some of those purchases.

    Those clothes are fundamentally, inherently ugly and fit like shit to boot. If you really can't recognize the difference between the clothes people post here and the things you bought you should probably spend more time lurking the forums and browsing through the threads.

    Styleforum doesn't represent some universal style though.

    Also, both this site and superfuture could care less about brand names as long as something fits and looks good.

    I don't think all of his pickups are ugly, none of them are flattering though. That guess shit is terrible though.

    Besides the Guess and DKNY shirt you bought (which just scream I want to buy Ed Hardy but I can't afford it) the main problem is the clothes you bought balloon out as they get past the chest.
