Very cool site w. a bunch of very nicely shot photos of diffrent outfits (mostly young preppy).

The dude who started the site isn't some 20-30 yr old blogger either, hes in hid mid 50's.

Here's an interview w. the founder of the site "Sergei Sviatchenko"

http://componentsofenthusiasm.wordpr...ivate-project/


"If I should mention creative individuals whose work I like, love, or admire, they would have to be: Igor Stravinsky, Steven McQueen, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Paul Newman, Richard Avedon, The Beatles, The Doors, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Curtis Mayfield, Paul Smith, Le Corbusier, Helmut Newton, and Charles Eames just to name a few."



There are hundreds and hundreds of pictures, I love a lot of those outfits.

from what I've seen, just more or less an endless imaging of shirt, tie, and v-neck sweater... over and over again.... and again.

If I want to read some yawn inducing BS I'll head over to the J Crew thread

All the clothing looks exactly the same basically looks like the WAYWT thread.

sites like that you just tend to scroll quickly through the images. Unlike the WAYWT, you don't/can't take the time to look at each of them individually because they are not relative to oneself.

It's random shots of people, no explanation, and 25% of them are artsy photos.

It is fun to do a quick "page down" scroll through. Kind of trippy.

Most of the time, when you do something you've never seen anyone do before, it's not because you're the first person to think of it, rather, it's because you're the first person dumb enough to do it.
