Big ups to @zxcvb for hosting the previous challenge, much appreciated. Creativity comes from constraint and this challenge's constraint is budgetary. PREVIOUS-LEVEL CHALLENGE Quote: We occasionally get the odd dingus coming into the forum complaining that their fit got no thumbs because they aren't wearing the right "brands". I believe this is a bogus line of thinking and I would like for y'all to prove it. I understand that this is a forum dedicated to fashion, but it is called styleforum, not fashionforum, right? I think "Gangbanged by the Mr. Porter newsletter" is generally less cool than head-to-toe-qlo if the latter is skillfully executed. RULES: 1. No designer clothing. No MMM, no Schnieder, no Rick Owens, no Visvim, etc. If you have to ask, it's probably not allowed. 2. Shoes - No CP, no Alden, no Viberg, no baller nothing. 3. Sales - I don't care if those GATs were 98% off, they're not allowed. Think MSRP 4. Voting begins in two weeks - JULY 20th. SUGGESTIONS: 1. VINTAGE/THRIFTED/DIY - I think this is where things can really be stepped up a notch. Bit of a grey area with thrifted brands. I trust your judgement, but PM or post any questions you might have ITT. 2. Mall shit - Uniqlo, Gap, Zara, etc. J Crew, Club Monaco tier is gonna be about the max allowed (no collab loopholes ie, TenC, Golden Bear, Alden, etc) 3. Footwear - Sneakers will be easy - Nike, Adidas, Converse, etc. Leather shoes/boots - Docs, Clarks...? 4. Doesn't have to be a WAYWT. Weather might not be cooperating, so feel free to just throw some stuff on, take a pic, and change. That said, mirror shots will be frowned upon, as usual! 5. Bonus points for polos PRIZES!: I take pictures of things for a living and the winner will be mailed five postcard sized, unframed prints of my photos. Also, maybe some such Vancouver-type thing. I'll think of something fun eventually, but there will definitely be prizes! INSPO: Actually, I don't really have any. Please PM me if you have any saved/bookmarked. In the meantime, I buzzed through WAYWT and grabbed some recent officially dope fits that could be conceivably comprised of entry-level shit; It might be more difficult for some, but I think we should all be able to put something together, so I'm expecting all of you certified cool dudes to participate. Even you, @RegisDB9 I know you have some Abercrombie tucked away somewhere! So dust off those basics, hit up some thrift shops, bust out that sewing machine, and let's do it!
