    Naw style forum. The people there are so stuck up, so it really doesn't bother me. example "I don't trust shoes that retail under $500" Not to mention nearly 90% of the people in their waywt would get flamed to death over here, so it all balances out EDIT: Heres the latest two pics of the guys that are the main ones flaming me. I thought the second guy was a girl lol. It was the second guy that said the thing about the shoes. Keep in mind both of these guys probably paid around 3k to upwards of 5k for the outfits their wearing. Also, Im not going to post their pics out of privacy, but their linked if you wanna click them. http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b3...04-08_1258.jpg http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3094/...939dda4bed.jpg

    Right, they seem to be concerned with things like fit and getting good deals (remind you of another site?) and don't seem to want to look like billboards (how most "stylish" teens dress). For a bunch of hs kids, I'm impressed.

    Understood, but I shudder any time I see gradient sunglasses. I understand they may be coming into their own style as teens, even though arguably some look older and in their mid-20s, and I can respect them for turning their shoulders to AE, A&F, Hollister, etc.

    At least it's one foot in the right direction, even if clad in a super square toe Steve Madden loafer.

    LK never said shoes under $500 retail are trash, just that he personally didn't trust him since he is able to purchase shoes over that mark.

    Haha. That blog is trash. It's like a less thought out GQ/Details/Esquire thing with even lamer clothes. Anything that on the first page has a link to a yesstyle type site, a boring/baggy revolve.com sweater, and an entry about shirts that rock being normal eason fitting button ups with embrodiary on one shoulder can't be good.

    And the women come running.

    Seriously though, there's a lot of ideas behind that "peacocking" thing. Just my two cents; don't miss out on reading the articles on the blog just because the forums are ummm, not up to par.


    peacocking is real shit yo. you just don't need to dedicate an entire forum to it. anything cool or hip thats out of the norm that you can wear, you can use to peacock. it seperates you from the rest of the crowd, can be a conversational piece.

    stazy- There's still time [​IMG] Peacoking is fine toned down i guess. I mean, just dressing well and a bit different from the norm works. Shit, i get girls asking me about my grey suede OC shoes all the time when i wear them. I said it in the other thread, but that cloak mesh sweater i had was a fucking chick MAGNET. Girls who didn't know wanted to touch it, and this 1 girl who did know what it was gave me her number.

    Wow kinowear.com's WAYWT is next level Epic Fail.

    I don't understand why they are so proud of looking... completely mediocre (at best).

    I'm not about to start making fun of high school kids -- most of us are likely very thankful that message boards weren't as abundant in the early 90's -- but this site has provided hours of amusement on a rather slow day at work.
