    Fuck, are you one of those "I want to see real people modeling" types? I didn't know that fashion magazines using... get this, skinny models, was a hipster thing.


    No, I wouldn't say that I am one of those "I want to see real people modeling" types.
    In addition, I most definitely appreciate art and culture to the max.

    However, magazines like this are less culture and more 'scene,' if you ask me. Fashion, like you guys will admit, is cyclical (just like scenes and trends). Culture is more permanent, like style.
    Considering that magazines are periodicals by definition, they showcase trends and what is currently cool (i.e. things a hipster would eat right up and embrace and then use to justify their pretentious attitudes)

    BUT LIKE I SAID, i've never even picked this magazine up so im judging a book by its cover...But in the end, I equate it to something like VICE which may be a bad comparison. but do you see where I am coming from?

    BTW, hipsters were originally beefy black jazz musicians...

    I've never actually read i-D aside from the few Daria pages I found scanned, but I will check it out now. I just thought the pic of Daria was hot. Geez.

    I hate how some think there is culture and then there is the scene! Like wtf do you think culture is? I'm sick of this style vs. fashion BS, like some sort of justification for being able to enjoy clothes. I'm not in it for fashion, im in it for style.

    i don't think you can deny that there is a dichotomy between fashion and style.

    fashion is ed hardy. fashion is LV. fashion is the flavor of the month


    style is slim denim. style is unfabricated fits. style doesn't have a brand name.


    EDIT: i agree, im done with this. haha

    slim raw denim doesn't make anyone instantly stylish. having a red line on your outseam doesn't mean anything either. pretty sure pac sun and UO have slim dark denim as well. i guess they're both into timeless style as well

    Keep telling yourself all these things. Fashion is clothing. Style is like someone's manner, it can be good or bad.

    A good deal of the clothing we love on this forum, guess what? Those designers studied fashion, not style....

    fashion is something else, colloquially.

    hey man, i have myself a pair of slims from pacsun. and that's exactly my point. It doesnt have to be a name brand to look good.

    and I admit, I shoulda said 'proper fitting denim' instead of 'slim denim'

    actually i was wearing my junn j sneaks and i was thinking that the patent leather would act as a mirror of sorts, sadly it would have required me to walk creepily close behind a girl.

    which stop, what time of night and was he accompanied by his 'secretary"?

    One trend I disliked seeing last month was guys in skinny red jeans.
