    In what sense? Let us suppose that Uncontrol-like style is MORE common then clarksdb/whatever/yawn-style, would it be any less logical that a guy dressed like uncontrol would not care much about feedback from people dressed in that oh-so-rare clarksdb look? I mean in addition to the wild differences in appearance and references/inspirations the clarksdb brigade on sf is very often pontificating about timeless style in a way that would make anyone put them on ignore. I know not everyone who wears clarksdb is a douchebag but many here are deluded into thinking they are 69-ing James Dean into eternal stylishness.
    in the sense that based on what i've seen, his choices are just as mannered as the one he criticizes. regardless, i'm not judging his tastes, i'm commenting on his commentary.
    Meanwhile most of us age, relate to a society that transforms and change outlooks as we face diff experiences, very often our wardrobe/look changes as well.
    don't i know it.

    don't i know it.


    I'd guess uncontrol find it absolutely boring and empty, not mannered but I dunno. I rarely care for it too but reserve hate for preppy style which is an abomination.

    I would be into, like, Bateman Prep, something that really takes the prep look into full-on runway insanity. Sporty striped polos with fake muscles sewn into the chest and sleeves, crossed-lacrosse-stick-stitched pants where each applique takes up an entire thigh, socks made of human ankle skin, etc.

    I don't really understand what you mean by "mannered" here.

    I think fuuma is referring to this kinda prep: [​IMG] but I don't think he would consider Junya or Thom Browne as an abomination, which are prep derivatives but I could be wrong [​IMG]
