    the wear is spread.

    This is a GOOD thing. Items will last longer if the wear is spread out onto multiple pairs.

    Dirty white shoes look fucking terrible.

    Sorry, internet.

    They're not really that shiny irl, it's either poly or spandex or something. They're very slightly stretchy. I fucking love Shipley lately though. I don't even know why. Everything just fits well.

    Yeah, toj minimalist in medium grey.

    quality aint much better, tbh. But actually i like it and always get compliments on it when i wear it, which is pretty much only when its overcast/raining.

    As for the argument over Mike...(sorry to perpetuate)

    I see where everyone is coming from. My personal opinion is that ,here, you should keep your criticisms (especially harsh ones) pretty conservative until you've got a solid grasp on your own look and are generally respected by the SF audience. Until then, no one really wants to take critique from someone without the credence to dish it. This has already been said in other words, but just to re-hash. But definitely in Mike's defense he is a sport when it comes to people critiquing him and that speaks volumes. Also gives him a little leeway to talk some crap -- but it should be playful and endearing. Not vitriol.

    Me, personally, I like to use my critiques and compliments sparingly and only when feeling especially passionate about a point. I think trying to assert your opinion and (in some cases) almost authoritative, definitive stance on what does and does not work -- I think that detracts from credibility. This is bad, but also, in full disclosure, I don't like overly complimenting people because it only leads to a human nature reaction of cyclical compliments between you and the other poster...so you never get a true understanding from that person moving forward. You may end up as just friends blindly complementing one another and I think arguing that would be difficult. There are exceptions (I have seen 'regular', 'respected' posters on many occasions give honest/real/even harsh critique to others of their same caste -- and I've always respected those exchanges). So of course, exceptions to everything -- but the cyclical/redundant/expected complementing is a general observation.

    Re; the Kiya fit. Whereas once this post may have been "What are you wearing today?", it's probably evolved into kind of a more "what kinda crazy shit are you wearing today that we've never seen strewn together". But what Kiya said was valid - he was at the park with his family and that's what he wore that day. Is it an insane outfit? Nope. Is it what he wore that day to the park with his fam? Yep. Would repeated fits of the same ilk get somewhat redundant and boring? Yep. Do people have the right to still continue to post them? Yup. Can you skip over them and get to the ones you like more? Bet your bippy you can. [​IMG]

    G'day.

    I do agree with the first sentence, the next is kind of difficult, as broken-in can look good in one fit and out of place in the other. Work in a office all day, broken sneakers... ehh not so much. There is always a line in how beat they are, destroyed CP's, i dont like either but a little dirty (not grass/mud, but dust dirty) can look really good. Yet, i did not recommend to get them dirty, but rather some grey off-whites ones.

    I completely disagree. Why even say something harsh even if you are an older member, this is so far from my view as it could be. If you have been around forever you should probably had picked up on almost every fit criteria and desired aesthetics possible, and generally know what you want. In case you have that much knowledge when why not share it? Isnt a forum supposed be a community in stead of look-at-me-i-got-the-longest-dick competition? Styleforum has much more potential then what is being utilized. Of course you can disagree with someone, but in stead of saying something harsh, then use informative points and constructive criticism.

    To me it's just dirty to walk around in mud covered / stained sneakers unless you're doing something outdoorsy. White sneakers will get progressively less white by wearing them normally, you don't have to beat on them.

    It's a personal thing. Like women and religion.

    Wait, this dude is talking about how i look like a random guy on the street? Mike, i don't know where you live but it must be a helluva great place.
    As a fellow resident I can attest to the fact that Baltimore is one of the WORST places. It's like living in a third world country minus the great ethnic food and sexy brown women.

    Some guy who has a variation of the color black in his name certainly needs his daily ego boost. [​IMG]
