    Is this meme coming from people who have never seen the damned things in person? Like everyone seems to think they're super directional. I have 4 pairs; they look like... sneakers. Nice sneakers, sort of noticeable, but Rafs they ain't. Unless you're rocking SQ's metallic blue captoe ones the majority of Lanvins out there aren't even eye-catching.

    Most of the ones I've seen just seem to clash with outfits, not complement them. I haven't seen them in person, so maybe it's just the pictures that make the shoes look like they're usually in ugly colors with shiny toe boxes?

    First shoreman fit I really dig

    Ha, thanks? What's appealing about this one vs others if I may ask

    ^^ I feel pretty much the opposite. It sure looks allright, but really "bland". A plaid shirt collar peeking out, or some cooler shoes would make it better.

    ... Why not?

    Seriously, that's why. The camera is already there, set up, it has a video setting, it's already pointed at a waywt location, it takes literally 30 seconds, max, to do. Your question is sort of like asking why people take WAYWTs at all. Makes no sense.

    R, i have seen Lanvins in person. I do not like them. They are either boring or too much for the kind of stuff we normally see on SF (sometime way fucking too much). Better off with CP's for standard sneakerwear or something more directional. Just my opinion.

    also faust is completely insufferable. probably the main thing that keeps me from posting a lot on sz.
