    lol come on stitch

    mc = rules and parameters, tight tolerances
    sw = THERE ARE NO FUCKING RULES

    it's not weird shit, it's putting shapes and styles together and not working with any kind of constraints smh (just look at your first 50 casual fits)

    with mc there are specific parameters among the same COMPONENTS (jacket, shirt, pants, tie) that are the antithesis of freely wearing a wide variety of styles that is sw

    yes you can copy a successful person's formula and learn something but point is there are hundreds of formulas

    fuck this conversation

    I think the recent discussion on SZ clearly displays that there are rules within subsets of SWD. Moo's jacket wasn't approved due to it being of a brand with the wrong "values" or some shit like that.

    You don't wear your Yamamoto garments tight. You strive for certain aesthetics within certain subsets of SWD. That's not really different from MC. Actually, there isn't just one formula for MC either, there is MC casual, which includes all sorts of outfits. A shirt with a collar isn't necessary, you don't need to wear a tie, suit or even sport coat for an outfit to be MC.

    There are different takes on coat and tie as well: Italian "sprezz", CBD, Ivy/prep/trad, classic English style, vintage style, mod et c. Then there are fusions of different styles as well, some of which include SWD elements.

    If there's one thing that unifies both sides of SF, it's the sweeping generalisations often made about the other side of the forum.

    without commenting on the pages and pages of discussion, I do tend to lean towards MC being easier, and this is one solid reason. there are still lots of options and choices to make, but with SWD the options are almost endless.

    also, I think a person's look/face has more of an impact with SWD. Anyone can look good in a suit. with SWD, your hair, facial hair, weight, facial features, skin tone, etc etc, they tend to work better with certain styles than others. so you can study all the looks you want, and you still have to learn how to make it work yourself. not everyone could carbon copy another member's awesome outfit and make it work. In MC, you sort of can...
