    I was trying to be nice because I'm new around here, but I'm just going to go ahead and speak my mind (especially since my outfit is 'painful' to look at). How is an outfit like yours better than mine? Why do I care what I look like? For the ladies-- and if I ask any lady I can almost guarantee they'll think that weird ass bunny shirt, thigh tight jeans (which make your feet look huge), and typical converse style shoes is a lot less appealing than my outfit. The fits make you look like a little boy, as well.

    And no, I'm not close-minded because I think there are a lot of people here that look a lot better than me (know so). Berlin report and sauce for example have amazing style. But honestly, some of your shit is painful to look at in my opinion. I'll take my mall brand jeans and t shirt over that any day.

    All in my opinion of course.


    Whether or not you like his style, his clothes undoubtedly fit... the rest is just personal preference of aesthetics.

    This forum has alot of good taste, although it can be narrow in scope at times, I think it can be best summed up with CONFORM CONFORM CONFORM CONFORM CONFORM CONFORM CONFORM *ahem* CONFORM CONFORM CONFORM, with a healthy dose of snobbery thrown in.

    I think men are developing serious self-image problems like women in thinking that they are 1-2 sizes smaller than they actually are. They don't want to be a 34" waist so they'll squeeze into slim 32"s and likewise a size 50 suit jacket is "gigantic" and they MUST wear a 46-48.
    It's not about the size on the tag...it's about having the approrpriate fit to your body type and having the clothes drape as they were made to.
    A guy wearing size 28 jeans and a 46 jacket and a guy wearing size 34 jeans and a 52 jacket will stylistically both look the same if that is in fact their correct size/measurments. But, I gurantee that whichever has the prettier face is going to "look better" than the other.


    Good post.

    In short, no. The AmJack aesthetic that your outfit represents mostly works in high school and (surburban) college females. Beyond that (age-wise or living in urban centers) is a completely different beast. You don't see stylish men in their late 20's rocking A&F for a reason.

    Besides, RyeGB is an artist, in his 30's, fairly affluent, and married. Dude doesn't have much to prove to anyone.

    If that is your objective then you've got other things to worry about plus you're on the wrong forum.

    I'm 19.

    And I think you're right.

    But I'm sticking around because most of the people here are pretty cool. I'm sure drizzt has thought like rye, but he's been helpful rather than hurtful.

    why are you here if you just want to dress "for the ladies", and already is sure that you do it better than other posters? The whole concept of dressing for someone else (the ladies) just means that you isnt interested in clothes and style for its own sake, but only as an instrument.. so why not just bro it out as much as possible, to get the mall -brand women that you seem to like?

    I myself just turned 20 a week ago and I have to agree with Jet and Bobo; if you're just doing things "for the ladies" you're doing them for the wrong reasons. Do things for yourself, be confident, and "ladies" aren't a problem. On another note, Braidkid definitely rocks the shit in most of his outfits. Makes me wish I weren't a poor college student so I could afford nice shoes too.

    "Mall-brand women" is my favorite new phrase, thanks SuperBobo! So much better, and more accurate, than "sorority girl".

    The guys on here do it because it's one of their passions, not to garner the attention of uneducated women. Once you develop a style all your own, you'll find it's a lot more fulfilling than dressing to appease members of the opposite sex and in addition you'll find that women will appreciate your individual aesthetic much more than a passing fad or an "of the moment" look.

    With that being said, bitches love that shit.

    I could debate with you guys all day, but I'll just keep cluttering up this thread. Honestly; I like it here and am learning so I don't want to leave even if you think I shouldn't be here.

    But if you want to discuss it just send me a PM.

    I don't think that anyone here wants you to leave; I don't, anyway. I think some people were trying to warn you not to substitute one "uniform" for another, even if the StyleForum "uniform" is approved here, and I'd echo that. If you really LIKE some of the things that other posters here dislike--certain types of graphic shirts, etc--then don't let people put you off it with groupthink. Just think about what they're saying, decide whether or not you agree and why, absorb it and move on. Which you seem to be doing pretty well at so far.

    I don't think people are telling you not to post here. I think their message is that in order to have more success with women you should be more confident and dress how you think looks good, not how you think some random mall-brand girl might think you look good in.

    You know, for me it's all about being comfortable in your own skin.

    I've been a member of this forum since 2002, and was recently taken to task by one of the Moderators for posting so little in five years.

    Well, I've recently lost 95 pounds (20 to go), and I'll be truthful here, I've never been comfortalbe posting....I mean, hell.....one of the regulars here was recently told he needed to lose weight, and MY GOD, he was so thin, it was ridiculous.

    So here's the thing. The guys on this forum are cutting edge when it comes to fashion, but so much of fashion has to do with personality, and the ability to "carry off" a look........as confident as I've become with losing 95 lbs....I'll NEVER be as confident as Berlin, "Mr. Sauce", SoCal, Braidkid, or even Rye, for that matter. These are all gentlemen who are COMFORTABLE in their own skin, .......and their looks.......whether you like them or not, are indicative of their taste, style, and COMFORT in who they are.

    While on this forum, I've discovered MANY looks I really like, and now that I've lost some serious weight...I'm ready to explore them. I mean...c'mon...recently, I was fed to the wolves for posting about "True Religion" jeans.......was made to feel like a LOSER..............but you know what....after having to wear Wranglers for years.....wearing True Religion jeans made me feel like an absolute SUPERSTAR!!!!!!!!!!

    So, basically, what I'm saying is....enjoy the forum, and continue to post. Learn a lot, and discover what you like, and what will WORK FOR YOU.

    I've discovered that I want to be SoCal in my next life......his style is just impeccable....TO ME, at any rate.

    BUT...if his style doesn't float your boat, take a lesson from the other gents on this forum....or one or two lessons from them all, and learn to live within your own skin.

    That's my two cents. Enough.

    Mark

Maybe I wear weird stuff because I'm trying to repel the average 250 pounds fat heffa with sweaty pits and a visible thong from coming near me. You can have them all, my treat. The fits make you look like a little boy, as well. That's my wifes perversive influence, you'll have to speak to her about that.[​IMG] And no, I'm not close-minded because I think there are a lot of people here that look a lot better than me (know so). Berlin report and sauce for example have amazing style. But honestly, some of your shit is painful to look at in my opinion. I'll take my mall brand jeans and t shirt over that any day. . Blend in, nothing wrong with prudish taste when it comes to clothes. I'm just part of a small demographic that will on occasion help you guys think out of the box with some weird ass bunny shirt, that's my job![​IMG] All in my opinion of course. I have not one bad thing to say about your opinion. Just toughen up, I'll always speak my mind, otherwise whats the point?.
