Post what you're wearing today, pieces you want to wear, recent cops, thrifting, inspo, concepts, runways, designers, questions, etc.
Previous thread: >>25977
I wear black neo-combat/work pants with the elasticated ankles and black hoody every day everywhere, interchangeable trainers, addidas in make.
If i'm going to the gym, I exchange the trousers for shorts and wear a sweat wicking top underneath. If I'm not I wear a plain t shirt, grey or white. If its cold I wear a jumper underneath, also a plain colour.
I'm guessing the Adidas are black too? I hope the pants look cool. If so, good.
nah thats my splash of colour
Thinking of switching it up with some camo trousers of the type mentioned above. But I feel like this is larpy and/or makes you look like a burned out rave kid
found some $800 luxury jacket for $10 when thrifting but they arent from a well known designer, should i bother getting them and trying to resell them or nah
Fashion is bourgeois. Proletarians wear functional/protective clothing or nothing.
I guess you wouldn't be taking that big a risk. Probably would be easier to sell on ebay or somewhere online. Look at what comparable items are going for and see if it looks worth it.
Camos make you look like a tool. Hope this helps.
Also the Navy shirt makes you look like a fascist in addition to a tool
You should be listening to faggots on fashion, it might help
Any piece of clothing can be pulled off and what matters is execution.
M65s are just good jackets. I've considered re-dying it because of anti-camo faggots, but I think I'll leave it as is. Only thing I've done is tear off the name tags and the US army patch.
You can always overdye it to make it more subtle but still keep the camo pattern, but if you like as it is then rock it.
A quick guide to proportions and layering I stole from leddit
"Looking better in outerwear is more than just 'buy this type of outerwear'. That's ignoring the shape of the wearer and the clothes they're wearing underneath that outer layer. That A-frame coat might entice people to seek one out expecting a similar results. What is not explained is that A-line silhouettes tend to favor narrow frame people, in particular, those with narrow shoulders. If you happen to have wider or square shoulders, you might be better served by a raglan sleeve which will soften you and create a more organic line (a robe coat might be your best bet).
Understanding your body will help you look better in outerwear. Do you have a long/short torso, do you have a wide/narrow frame? V shape? Pear shape? Round? Etc. A nice puffy bomber might sound great, but if you have thicc thighs or are more rotund you might actually be better off with the slimmer and more rectangular bomber.
Pretty much anything goes, but it's hard to get there if you don't pay attention to how forms change on your body and what you pair them with.
Some basic visual breakpoints for folks to keep in mind are:
- The bottom of the chest - Think shrug/bolero length
- Modern waist
With these breakpoints you can add layers that hit different breakpoints to create different proportions. You can use color to create or hide contrast between sections. You can vary widths to explore more complex forms. You can leverage accessories to delineate breakpoints. You can tuck, roll, and whatever else to also hit those horizontal visuals to help play with proportion and change the silhouette.
Try to think of your fit as a composition of shapes and then, you can look better in outerwear (and everything else too)."
I dress like shit and can't afford drip
You don't need it. Make yourself more attractive. Clothing is only the wrapping.
Thrift uygha thrift
Yeah it's hard and takes too long so you end up shitting yourself
Don't do it if you got a sweaty ass crack
Just wash it regularly and don't get it wet?
Why are there supposedly designer brands with logo graphics on their stuff? I don't wanna pay premium just to be a walking advertisement.
Because streetwear became huge in the last decade. Also it's mostly only the "traditional" houses that do this shit (think Louis Vutton, Prada..)
With this thread hitting a third version maybe we need a whole board? Though it's only like 20 people involved on the fashion threads. >>29901
What even is considered narrow/wide shoulders exactly? What is thicc thighs? What is a short or long torso? Are these sort of things all relative as a ratio or a specific measure range? I think to even make use of this sort of info one needs to actually figure out how to properly identify their body. And what of posture? I noticed posture has a big effect on how tops look. I look different wwhen hunched over some than I do with a ridgid back. >>29910
No. Just dont wear white shoes with white jeans unless you have a white top on. >>29926
Merino wool underwear likely would take care of a sweaty crack. It absorbs moisture better than cotton and better temperature regulation so less likely to sweat to begin with. >>29929
It probably originally started with mens clothes because they kept forgetting what brand they were wearing. You can remove patches with a seam ripper. You can remove embroidery with a seam ripper too or a specialized tool made for shaving off embroidery from backsbackside with a clipper like tool usually but can risk accidentally cutting the fabric too. Though you need a fabric that can have the holes dissapear. I know it works on cotton and wool but less sure on others. >>29934>97% petrol product
I hate this timeline. I noticed this happens way less with womens clothes. They are forcing men to wear plastic while women get cotton, cashmere, silk and fine linen.
That does look comfy though
>>29910>black man>white pants>esoteric nazi symbology>poopy
Yeah, I'm thinking kino
tbh stuff like even only 5% cashmere greatly improves the feel of any fabric
So like a normal battle jacket? I want one too but I don't go to enough shows to get patches.
i think they mean non-anarchists are ugly
they use lenin as example
nah just get a good fit, but just be careful were u sit if u dont wanna be paranoid
apparently marx was blocked from entering the library because he didnt have a suit jacket so they thought he was povo
How did they even sew those patches on when the jacket has a lining? Go through the lining or try and sew only from the front side with something like a slip stitch?
I'd like something like that too, it's cool, but I'm too lame for it
Leather breathes a little through the pores. It's why kangaroo leather is more watertight, lack of pores. But yeah I don't know who manages that. Newer fake leathers of al sorts are coming around and maybe some are more breathable than petrol chemical faux leather and real leather.
waxed denim is much better for pretty much the same look
Is there some other kind of denim other than waxed that has a shiny look? I used to own some but some asshole may have thrown them out and i had them from two decades ago.
I don't think so. You can wax jeans or any other cotton clothing yourself if you want btw
What does this have to do with fashion?
But anyways:>back to the cave nosferatus>you weren't built for this world.
Skincare has a lot to do with fashion.
I was using examples that was more away from what Id want to avoid. Point being is seems difficult to figure out what to do with all these layers and sometimes organic like silhouette.
become a snufkin cosplayer then
I work for a living, taking care of my body isn't an option.
not eating solid food for a couple of months to fit into size 1 julius
I also want to know this. If we're going into a great depression 2.0 I want to at least look nice.
I wish Grailed staff fags and rappers hadn't ruined the second-hand market for so many designers, it's all one big astroturf. Raf, Issey, Final Home, N(N)… who will they ruin next?
🥺 someone post how to get into tailoring
just get fake one, then the porkoids are the real dumbasses.
they're clearly not the same thing
first one is a bekishe, a frock coat made of embroidered silk or polyester
second one is probably a kittel which is just standard linen (or cotton blend) robes with a midriff lace
not junko nor jewish, my offputting racist friend, just someone that googled "jewish jacket suit" and "jewish robes" in under 2 minutes
that sounds exactly like what junko would say.
That first fit looks aweful. Makes the model look really short which is kind if what I was talking about avoiding. Rest looks maybe worth looking out for. >>30499>become a snufkin cosplayer then
Lol I'm not really limiting myself to a specific look just using it as a basis for use of natural materials that is more DIY friendly for if I ever get a chance to properly learn to sew. >>30715
I'm not really experienced much but regular cut wouldnt give you much to work with to make a J jean cut and relaxed and wide fit often is loose in the hip area unless they are low rise jeans i think. If loose in hip area it's difficult to take in that much far up because of the front pocket rivets. A better base possibly would be any cut that flares out at least starting at the knee is what my instincts say. >>30727
Didnt know J shirts were a thing but I guess that makes sense. I imagine to get a proper look the fabric has to be heavier weight or it just looks sloppy? >>30716>post how to get into tailoring
I did in one of the past threads. Easiest to understand I found was this guy Stylish D on YouTube. He uses a sewing machine but there does exist cheap handheld sewing machines and if you wanted to do hand sewing the tailoring process will be mostly the same just different stitch choice in some situations. He doesn't always use the best methods since he's not totally a pro but he focuses on men's clothing and is clear on his instructions so good place to start I think. For hand sewing pretty much any historical clothing maker channel has good info on hand sewing because they do it out of passion.
Guys i want a pair of fitted gloves that i can wear casually but especially to keep my hands warm while still being tough enough to last a while, so like a pair of leather gloves perhaps, but this website im looking at says itll take 8 months to reach me. What the hell do i do? Should i visit a tailor or something in real life so they can do the measuring?
Gloves are hard to fit. I have to wear women's leather gloves because my fingers arent sausages and the seams on men's gloves are often bulkier.
Where did you get your gloves?
They are my mom's old gloves so I don't know. She doesn't remember those sort of things but my guess would be TJ Maxx.
What the fuck website are you looking at? Just visit a store in-person.
You should check actual size first. I used to think men's clothing didnt do vanity sizing but they actually do. My measurments are two inches larger than my pant size. When jeans shrink it usually is more in length than width and Ive had jeans get loosened with wear but at 100% cotton you should expect increased risk of tears if you size down versus up and if tailoring is an option it's easier to tailor smaller than bigger. Also depends on your body shape. If you have a flat ass, and legs similar thickness throughout maybe size down and if you have thick calves or thighs maybe size up. So it's a tough call. >>30871
It started with someone online making and selling what they called "goth Crocs" and some designers also did collabs that do similar idea in collabs. You can basically just make them yourself putting studs in and securing them somehow.
I gave designers who are known for minimalist pieces a try and while they look good on me I'd rather wear shit with lots of pockets. :(
Either get it tailored or buy gloves made out of high quality leather which is more flexible than common cuts
It's still like this minus the gaudy and expensive jewelry tacked on.
uneven bite + shitty angle
he has the money to get his teeth realigned
Are there any good winter coats out there? Warm, waterproofed and not look like trash?
depending where you live it is not sociable acceptable to wear this, unfortunately
You're supposed to retract them into your body for safe keeping
LOL you just let them hang out there? in the world?? where any thing can happen to them???
As one ages it starts its slow descent :(
looks kinda trashy no?
You wanna look like you're in a gang or something?
The Adam Sandler fit
so you tellin me all I gotta do is duct tape the seams n my pants look cooler?
srry im new to fashion I do not know of these things
>>31625>he thinks wearing basketball shorts all the time is related to gang activity >lol
like a quarter of the male population below 25 dresses like this guy
now wearing basketball shorts under your ribbed amiri jeans while rocking a shiesty is an actual red flag
>>31672>beautifully androgynous and childish
Are you comfortable putting those words together like that?
the lining on that jacket is affixed with buttons and is removable.
Bruh cholo comrades in the 501s are unbeatable
children tend to be androgynous
Chose your fighter: >Me an Intellectual (tweed suit of clothes) / trot>Guerilla fighter (jungle boot and green fatigues) /maoist >Black Bloc (vans, black hoodie and jeans) / anarchist>Gosplan Core (pleated slacks and short sleeve button up) / M-L (hoxhaist)>Defamation League (sandals, brown tone, shegmah) / communalism>Union Drip (union hoodie/bomber, blue jeans, cap or flat back) / socdem >Chinese Characteristics (engrish graphic tee, fake Jordans, $14 cargo joggers) / ML ( Deng Xiaoping Theory )
tweed is too coarse and feels like wearing a rug t. intel ex shoe ull
Gosplan Core is a black or grey department store polyester suit and tie
I can't into fashion because I'm a third worlder in an all-year 90F degrees region.
Or a third worlder.
I'm a third worlder and all of my stuff is thrifted. I've even found designer stuff when thrifting for cheap because nobody here even recognizes what it is.
Is there like some article in some legal code where you're not allowed to be into fashion when you live in a tropical climate? Is it against a UN convention?
Fuck everyone selling their clothes online that don't list all measurements. What's the point of knowing how long it is if I don't know the length of the sleeves or whatever.
I think the point is it's too hot to wear anything but a tshirt.
I live in temperate climes but I get hot easily so I can rarely wear any drip either. Alas.
t-shirts are fucking awful for hot weather
just wear something breezy and/or porous and you'll be fine
Go full Yohji, black drapey balloony clothes are better against heat than slim white clothing.
Linen and rayon are your friends.
if it has ribbing it isnt gonna help much, try stretching it if its all cotton
By the looks of it, yes.
Is this from the latest Human Trafficking collection?
i said it before and ill say it again, fuck american rappers for ruining the secondhand designer clothing market
how would you call that type of jacket he's wearing in the first pic?
It seems to be a cropped trucker jacket made of wool.
>>30734>Makes the model look really short
Designers like playing with proportions, this isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I still have issues about what to pair with chunky sneakers.
just avoid skinny jeans
go for wide pants, cropped for a clean look
or shorts and tall socks if youre feeling bold
Tabis really sell it.
Been covered a few times already. Search through the thread on hot weather fabrics. >>32444
I cant get over my mental association of cropped pants with just being too short of pants that some tv nerd would have worn in the 90s.
Need to get Gaultier pieces before some American rapper inevitably decides to wear his stuff.
who the fuck wears a beanie that high up?!
Creative directors, software engineers, and UX designers.
when thrifting i saw a cp company sweater for $5 that fit me perfectly and i didnt get it because it had a very small hole, i regret it now
I barely even use regular pockets
Maybe just for my phone and some random bits of paper
my guess is you will feel the contents of your cargo pockets swinging back and forth every time you walk and itll be even worse if youre running
I haven't found anything worth buying when thrifting for quite a while, this sucks.
Try and push bullshit trends on normie spaces so rich kids get rid of their good stuff.
>>32506>Your opinions on cargos
Objectively the best pants>b-but hollywood fashion police tells me that practicality is ugly!!==!???!?"311
Black cargos, lessens contrast of pockets, problem solved>Are they comfortable for carrying extra stuff>>32515>actually using the pockets is pretty inconvenient and a great way to destroy stuff while doing manual labour>>32524>you will feel the contents of your cargo pockets swinging back and forth every time you walk and itll be even worse if youre running
Your thigh pockets are specifically for light/thin objects.
I dont see how an object being light/thin is going to help me not destroy it. The bigger concern is the impracticality, which you didnt address. I need to bend over to get a hand into those thigh pockets.
>>32607>Your thigh pockets are specifically for light/thin objects.
kinda defeats the purpose of having extra pockets i think
I mean I think cargos look cool but we're talking about the utility of the pockets and I'd argue they have very little. If Im thinking about how do add more storage space to my lower half I'd definitely go with a fanny pack/shorts shorts combo
im kinda autistic and cant stand having anything in my pants, just use your jacket's pockets or a crossbody bag if its summer
ya same lol. I also wear jeans which tend to have tight af pockets so I just stick everything into the inside coats of my pockets
>inside coats of my pockets
switched those words around somehow, you get my drift
While we are on about pockets i used to have a pair of pants where the entire front thighs were massive pockets with zippers down the outer seams. I could put a collapsible umbrella in my pocket and you wouldn't even notice.
I used to have a BDU jacket that could fit my laptop in the inner pockets lol, though of course it wasn't very comfortable.
half the time its poltards posting or encouraging the most boring fits you can imagine or unfunny retards trying too hard to be snarky
Can't you just pour glue on your own shoes?
Having few, overfilled pockets is just all-around terrible.
Crossbody bag is easily stolen/leverage in a fight. >>32618>inside pockets in coats
good luck in summer
>>32651>easily stolen/leverage in a fight
how many times has that happened to you
Are you one of those EDC types who carry a bunch of useless stuff at all times?
None but it is a potential danger that you as a politically controversial, active figure should be aware of; something that I assume you are, right? >stolen
Of course I've had shit stolen from me, though as a consequence of inadequate supervision. I live in an urban area.
This is cultural appropriation.
That's a spot holes appear from things people carry in their pockets so maybe a decorative reinforcement.
i often see those darts on the thigh and back of the knee areas on designer jeans so i thought there was a reason to them beyond aesthetics
Well darts usually are to make clothing more form fitting. I just was thinking maybe it's to help prevent tears because the seam would be stronger.
Isn't it to make the pants more comfortable or to wrinkle to give a desired effect?
starting to think that as a lanklet i will never be able to wear japanese jackets, their sleeves are so fucking short
These threads started off alright but they've become an incel /fa/ colony
whats "incel" about complaining that japanese designers make their stuff way too short lmfaoo
modern fashion culture is bourgeoise nonsense
glad we had this talk
That's just American streetwear nonsense tbh.
i wish designers "open sourced" their stuff more often
what in the knock-off docs
the dior aw07 boots shit on docs tho
I didnt even know designers like that sometimes let people see their patterns let alone have them. That's cool though just too bad it's not common enough
I've been using those headphones since like 2007 or whatever. I just picked them because I thought they sound nice. It's funny to me how popular they've become. The plastic hinges are shit tho. I don't know what's wrong with them. They're charging 200 now but they can't even make it out of something a little more durable?
Issey Miyake (RIP) released patterns through Vogue in the 90s too.
/cgl/ is even more reactionary and have terrible opinions when it comes to fashion than /fa/ despite spending their monthly checks on shitty cheap "lolita" clothes
They became popular because lots of people picked them because they thought they sounded nice
>search for cdg fits
>only get cdg play garbage
I see women with tight fitting calf high boots and I just get so mad that all I get is the fucking cowboy boot and I come home and look at the 8 pairs I own that I never wear because I can’t stop wearing doc Martin loafers. Knee high boots LOOK SO FUCKING COOL LIKE I COULD FUCKING DO ANYTHING IN THOSE BITCHES. CLIMB MOUNTAINS. RIDE HORSES. WALK LONG DISTANCES. RIDE BIKES. KICK PEOPLE. STOMP ROACHES. ID BE UNSTOPPABLE VAGUELY 1800s ADVENTURE MAN.
does anyone actually buy this shit?
i hope not, all "archive" resellers deserve to go bankrupt
its sad to think how many depop/grailed people have dozens of pieces of old clothing all just sitting there, marked up, remaining unsold, all while they continue to fill up spare rooms and storage lockers with more and more of it
Martin himself wouldn't want you to buy these; he would want you to find a good pair of sneakers that you yourself like and customize them tastefully as an expression of your own artistic intent. This is what he did when he stumbled upon the German army trainers in the late 90's.
There will be plenty of uniformed hacks out there to support these luxury houses, don't worry. You don't need to be one of them. Remember Margiela left his own label over a decade ago already.
My homies dress in variations of this for $15-$150, some since 1995 . Nothing wrong with obsessing over adornment but at least obsess about recreating what you want for minimal cost, or learning a skill to recreate it. Not consooming 1.5k jackets.
look up what acronym is lol
you could get a brand new very very high quality hoodie and add the patches yourself for under $300
No? Women do it all the time.
like 10 years ago on fashion Internet people would argue and be very particular on who can wear trenchcoats and peacoats and when it was appropriate or "overdressing" and now 90% of people wear them with a hoodie and jordans anyways
The other anon is correct.
hold on let me make goretex and waterproof seamless jackets myself
Timbs and combat boots have been a thing in streetwear for a long time.
Just show your barber that picture.
For selling? Yeah, because it's still the most popular even if their fees suck.
You can find j-legs for affordable prices these days since they haven't been "in" for a while.
It looks like some cute spirit.
stop. you cannot be this horny.
Wow, white women will even go for dogbots.
Haven't these been for sale for a while now? Genuinely surprised I haven't seen anyone strap a Fleshlight to one of these.
Congratulations you found out you can basically put on whatever pastel colors you want and they mix and found out dress pants and puffer jackets are easy to proportion can you do something interesting now? and stop wearing cream coloured beanies? tyler the creator made people think they could wear a goofy mustard colored vest and that would be it
Is that the temple OS guy?
I miss when wearing all black wasn't mainstream.
Also they seem very fragile, like they'd easily get torn but that's an issue with anything made of nylon I guess.
I wish I didn't become interested in clothing when the economy is in the gutter.
I was looking for help in how to make the most out of a small closet and all the examples were at least twice as big as mine.
tfw i have a closet full of designer clothing and nowhere to wear it to because i'm a social outcast
Kinda sad that ssense seems to be imploding, they always have great prices during sales.
Sure. A leather jacket you wear is like your second skin, and it should feel perfect to you on all of its characteristics, which I'll get into below.
First when I buy a leather jacket I'll group it into one of two categories which will influence its use case to me:
Heritage / daily wear jackets: These would be time-tested built like a tank sorts that you will pass to your children. And their children. They're more conservative, and the style have not changed for decades. Some brands in this space are Schott, Vanson, Aero, and on the higher end, we have repro brands like Real McCoys, Iron Heart, Himel Bros. I would wear these daily, to everywhere, thick and thin. Typically these are made out of thick (unfashionably so), full grain leather from reputed tanneries. Horsehide, buffalo, and steerhide are the most common leathers you see, and the fits are much boxier.
Fashion brands: These look amazing from a style perspective, but I would not count on being able to pass them down to my kids. They're much more fashion forward, with higher armholes, and flattering silhouettes. You feel like a million bucks wearing it, and you're the center of attention. Some brands in this space would be: Kooples, Allsaints, Sandro, and maybe Polo on the lower end, and on the higher end, you have your "menswear" brands like Valstar, purple label Polo, Savas, Zegna and also of course your designer brands like Rick Owens, YSL, Celine, Acne Studios. And if you want to plumb the depths of fashion hell you have niche brands like Julius, Carol Christian Poell, Incarnation, Devoa, Boris Bidjan Saberi, and so on. It gets real deep. The hides are usually corrected and thin, and made of more supple, stretchy hides like goatskin, calfskin.
And when I am evaluating the quality of a leather jacket I look at a few qualities of the jacket. Of course depending on whether its a heritage or fashion jacket my needs would change.
What animal is it from? Horse is shiny, difficult to break in, but arguably the strongest. Steerhide (grown up bulls) is durable and thick as heck. Goathide / sheepskin is really comfortably and easy to wear but thin. Calfskin is also similarly thin, and comfortable and stretchy. It's like picking a class in an RPG, theres pros and cons to all of them.
How thick is the hide? You can usually grab it and kind of tell once you've handled enough jackets. Thickness affects durability but also wearability. I'd trust my schott to protect me if I fell off a motorcycle, but its kind of bulky and cumbersome. My Rick Owens jacket is beautiful and fits my frame PERFECTLY but its kind of thin, and sometimes feels like im not wearing anything due to how supple it is.
Is it corrected? Corrected means the designer took a sandpaper to the hide and sacrificed some durability and thickness to achieve a uniform texture.
Was it properly tanned? Most reputable brands have great sources and leathers that are tanned well - but I've gambled on smaller brands and gotten spongy leather that was not durable at all - it flake really easily and expose the blue spongy (clearly chrome tanned) inner layers. If you buy a "sick deal" on amazon on an unknown brand you'll run into this. Trust me.
How is the stitching? The first place cheaper leather jackets skimp out on is the stitching - and these become points of failure.
How's the paneling? Your jacket is made up of panels - and it is more expensive to have less panels and bigger stretches of leather. More panels usually means a cheaper leather jacket (to produce). There are considerations like a bi-swing back, and armpit footballs which increase mobility for the aforementioned heritage jackets that are thick AF, but fashion jackets are usually thin enough to be comfortable either way.
How's the hardwear? Thin tiny weak zippers are the bane of my existence - they catch, they break, they jam, and they suck. I will not ever buy another jacket with a flimsy zipper. MFA seems to think YKK zippers are the GOAT, but there are some shitty YKK zippers out there. They should never be plastic, and even when they are metal, they should be ideally incredibly robust, and buttery smooth. Once you feel the heft of a schott zipper, you feel confident that you could zip it up and down a million times and still be fine. I've found Riri and excella zippers to be top notch - and often the brands put their own brand names on them so you can't tell anyways.
Smell. Good leather jackets just smell sexy af. And the crappy ones never smell good - toxic even. Gave a leather jacket to someone as a gift, and he commented on how it had given his entire close an amazing smell. Ofc he became a leather jacket convert after that.
The shape: There are various classes of leather jackets you should be aware of. Each has its own vibe - its up to you to decide if it fits your aesthetic.
Double rider: The classic biker cut, very cool, kind of aggressive and rebellious.
Moto: Like a biker but toned down. Still cool, a bit more versatile.
Trucker: Literally a trucker, like a denim trucker, but in leather. Very casual cool.
Bomber: Comes in all sorts of size, cuts, and collars. Probably the most versatile, and very casual. Kind of a wildcard bucket, theres so many types any jacket that not one of the above 3 are usually called a bomber.
Menswear-but-in-leather: Think leather peacoats, leather blazers, leather topcoats, leather shirts. Not a fan. Reminds me of oldschool gangsters or something. The meta seems to have moved on from these, and you'd look a little dated wearing it.
Experimental. You'll see some crazy shit man - these are the designer and avant-garde brands with crazy asymmetrical cuts and zipper configurations.
Of course theres also suede and nubuck that are completely different vibes that I won't get into. The best place to start playing around with leather jackets is the used market like ebay - get a jacket that will hold its value (i.e. you can sell it for the same or more than you bought it for) and churn them to discover what you like. A good leather jacket is a second skin, I've probably owned close to 50 leather jackets and slowly bought and sold them until 7 or so jackets that I'm completely in love with remained.
Raf Simons' final collection that launched a few days ago is so underwhelming.
Thinking about the time Rei said "why don't women show that same energy that men do when it comes to Supreme".
this is so old, we buying the balenciaga italian leather garbage bags now
I remember those bricks cost $30 retail. What was insane were the insane resell prices and I dunno if anyone took the bait.
im glad the hype is dead
supreme always has quite a few nice pieces in each collection but they get overshadowed by basic shit with the red logo slapped on it
Yes! I've owned a few pairs of these. Love 'em.
who are you quoting retard
american media literacy everyone
unless you want to go full minimalist this is pretty normal
It wouldn't look too out there if it's cold and you pair with simpler clothes
Maybe you're just talking about the general style with "too wide" yeah older suits aren't a slim fits as todays. I don't really think that's going to be a tailoring issue, more as you should just pick a suit in a style that fits what you want.
Basically the pattern itself dictates a lot of the fit.
All of you fashionistas should try taking a fashion class at your community college. I only did the first one. I was shit at sewing. Goddamn a industrial sewing machine is hard to operate. You'll gain appreciation for every garment factory. It's funny how every garment factory is labeled a "sweat shop." In the media just because it looks so haphazard, but that's just how it is. But yeah sewing is hard. Real manufacturing shit. Can't mess up for a second otherwise you did some irreparable mistake to the fabric. You wouldn't believe how fast those sewing machines go. First you are just going to be learning how to operate them on the slowest possible setting with your foot.
Shitty and fake looking holes are so tacky man.
I'll consider taking sewing lessons because I don't have the patience to learn that on my own.
that happens with black actually
we absolutely need less people who are "into fashion"
when someone tells me theyre into fashion and then they give me a list of names and labels for things they own i imagine how the researchers who give a mirror to a crow feel when they see it successfully identify itself
They're goofy and at the same time so so boring.
Rick Owens already did something similar to this but much better.
there should be a guy just dressed like vash the stampede at the met gala
Looks like a cross between a Hitler Youth uniform and a pimp outfit
Unnecessarily hot image.
What were you wearing, can you describe it?
A zipped up bomber and skinny jeans lol
Lesbians aren’t American silly
- File cards neatly (buisness, credit/debt, ect…)
- Keeps bills from crumpling or tearing too much, so useful if you use automated cash purchases like the self-checkout or vending machines.

i learned the wrong way that its better to have a few excellent pieces than a bunch of cheap mediocre crap
ok but isn't this compilation more an issue of these guys not being attractive than really showing issues with the clothes (except for the hoodie with neck flaps, that one is genuinely retarded)
Love so many expensive garments being "hand wash and dry clean only" because they actually aren't well made and you can't ask for a return if something goes wrong when washing it.
buy nice or buy twice
Idiotic channer race science
Aside from size and ensemble and grooming issues, they all look as presented in the "reality" pics
>>33936>Aside from size and ensemble
so everything? like the description says the clothes are most probably pinned in the back so they hug the mannequin tight
the clothes dont get the same stacks in reality like they do on the pictures either
Looks like what happens if you were to reverse tie dye jeans by using duct tape as a masking agent before spraying hydrogen peperoxide then washing them.
“When I think about pieces that have transcended time, been imitated thousands of times, and that continue to be relevant from a perspective of design, concept, and composition - only a few stand out among today’s disposable tendencies. Of those few garments that deserve a place in a museum of modern art there is YSL’s Mondrian dress, Mugler’s Armor corset, Margiela’s Saddle - Shaped Shoulder blazer, and this … the Blistered Lamb Biker by Rick Owens.
There is a clear complexity in every pattern of this jacket, and these converge in a poetic way to assemble quite a manifesting silhouette. The elongated sleeves are decorated with a corded ladder construction, and end in a raw wool lining. With a neck that is high to the chin, asymmetrical, and closed with a severe Raccagni zipper, the front of the jacket opens like a cataract of leather. The softness of the garment is enhanced by Rick’s most famous leather, which is washed and weathered to feel like a matte-waxed virgin wool. Jet black, dry, and incredibly docile.
Karlo Steel described this garment best during an interview, when he explained that this jacket “thinks it’s a sweater”. A perfect exercise in draping, that whispers exactly the ethos of the creator … “THE LUXURY OF NOT CARING.”
This guy thinks Rick Owens invented leather jackets

fashion obsession is a bourgeoise distraction, please focus your energies elsewhere

I like cord pants a lot more than cord jackets tbh.
girls have such an advantage. chokers, hosiery, pleated skirts, showing bra, long hair to do things with, nail paint.
for guys theres maybe some necklaces, wristbands, studded belt, black ripped/simple cargo pants, tattoos maybe? a jacket is nice but covers the wrists and any arm tattoos. fingerless gloves could be done but tricky
No one's stopping you from wearing those things bro. Put a choker on and slut it up.
You don't want to look back on your death bed and be like "I could have been so slutty but I chose to dress like I work in an office."
I've started wearing pleated skirts, hosiery, chokers, and I paint my nails. They can't stop you bro. I look fucking great btw (and I'm fucking off of it)
The good thing about not living in the first world is that i can wear fakes and nobody gives a shit
men are oppressed when it comes to alt fashion. I’m out here wearing black tactical boots over black jeans with silver chain accessories, black goth band tees or horror movie tees, black fingernails, silver ankh necklace, and I get one of my friends saying I only dress “vaguely goth” and another laughing at me for even suggesting that I fall into that subculture. Meanwhile all a woman has to do is throw on a pair of Chucks, fishnets, black skirt/shorts, *maybe* paint her nails black, and put on a fucking Thrasher Magazine tee and she’ll have dumbass simps going “YES ZOMG GOTH MOMMY!!!”
Granted, I do dress more Midwest emo 90% of the time, but holy shit, I’m not a cartoon character, I can dress more than one way and listen to more than one type of music.
Well do you have jet black hair or no?
>>34238>YES ZOMG GOTH MOMMY
It's not that people really think they're goth, they are desperate and just want to fuck her.
For some reason I'm only attracted to jet black or completely white hair.
im a super masc dude and like androgynous clothing, shit sucks
make a statement then, wear it anyways
You wish you could look this good.
If the shirt was tucked in and he was wearing pantyhose instead of thighhighs or the skirt was a bit longer, then this would look good.
It's not super hard to start dressing more androgynously or wearing women's clothes. You just gotta figure out what size you are and what works for you and shit. Hit a thrift store and start experimenting a bit.
Yes. If anyone has a problem with it just let them know that I have allowed you to do so.
If it bothers you consider getting more drapey outerwear.
I have a raw selvedge jacket lol. Not from Levis but from some Japanese brand. I kinda like it, looks nice enough.
Rick did sneakers made out of Japanese selvedge denim once.
There's a difference between oversized which looks deliberate and baggy/too big which looks sloppy and I could only tell you which is which if you posted a whole outfit.
Having curly hair is literally a curse.
another pride month where i dont have a schott leather jacket thats so tight it cuts off the circulation in my arms, sigh…
I have no idea how to make it look good.
If it is curly it already looks good, you don't have anything to do with it.
The whole 'archive' movement is a marketing scheme devised by Grailed sellers to push up the price of rags that noone wanted x years ago and sell them to impressionable teenagers and 20somethings who worship rappers and have nothing to do with their money. Grailed marketing came first, Tiktok came after. Buying stuff from Japan was bad ever since people figured out they could flip it for profit; there were groups of people coordinating with each other to bidwar Japs for Yohji, Undercover etc stuff. It didn't matter to them how high the price went because they would ALWAYS sell it for profit in the west, meanwhile the Japs were missing out because westerners kept raising the price. It's had lasting effects; the prices of pretty much everything out of Japan have increased. I bought my first Cav Empt hoodie for 5k yen on Rak; you can barely find one for less than 10k unless it's in horrible condition.
I've realized I hate the way I dress, don't know how to put together a wardrobe I like, and don't want to give into vapid consumerist trends. What are the staples I need to own? (when I look this up I get shit like 'you need an overcoat in every closet'). I don't really want to focus on this too much, I just want to be comfortable, not pay an exorbitant amount, and look normal. Any help? Thanks
this is hard to answer if you dont tell us what clothes or styles you like
generally i tend towards baggier clothes e.g tshirts that cover elbows. i don't really have a preference though. i just don't want to attract too much attention when i'm out and about.
Don't try to buy a whole new wardrobe at once, even if you find a list of "staples" that you think you like or whatever.
I would recommend experimenting some to develop your tastes and figure out what kind of wardrobe you would like.
Start going to thrift stores (and ebay - know your measurements as you won't be able to try on the clothes) and get a few pieces, maybe even try different styles or stuff you aren't sure if you'd like or not. Try and wear them. Evaluate, what are you actually wearing, what's working for you, etc. and let this guide future purchases. You will figure out what you like. As part of this, you will probably end up with some pieces you aren't into. As you bought used already, this isn't a big deal; they were cheap and you can just donate them back.
If you really don't want to put any effort into this, and just want to be comfortable and look normal, just wear some t-shirts (plain or non-obnoxious graphics), joggers, and shit. Just look around and see what the "normal" people around you are wearing and wear that.
the peak of uniqlo was when nigo served as content designer for the ut line and managed to generate some hype stateside (since uniqlo is perceived like old navy in japan where it's embarrassing to admit getting stuff there), but as is still the case, they have no idea how to allocate product to the west, and continually dilute any momentum they had/have by not supplying enough of what people actually want until they lose interest and focusing on offering shit merino sweaters in every color under the rainbow
anime tees has always happened with uniqlo, but the shonen jump collections when nigo was there were much more comprehensive and sold extremely well without them having to make considerations for things like "exclusivity" (which they dropped the ball on for all the streetwear stuff like the multiple kaws collections) and being able to sell volume with no backlash
this laid the foundation for how they've continued to do specific collections of anime tees where they still suck at meeting demand, the semi-recent jujutsu kaisen stuff comes to mind
also when nigo was director for ut, he established a lot of corporate relationships for uniqlo and it produced some of the most interesting collabs the brand did, but once he left most of the niche relationships died off
the anime/game shit is another case of just how detached japanese uniqlo corporate is from the world, they saw all the traction anime had globally during covid and think that's how they get people interested
to be fair uniqlo is predominantly focusing on southeast asian expansion right now so the weeaboo angle likely resonates with those nations, whereas when uniqlo was pushing through europe last decade (along with the states), it led to collabs like lemaire (which ended up expanding fully into the uniqlo u line now with lemaire controlling it), ines de la fressange, etc.
uniqlo continues to suggest they're all about staples and not fast fashion, and then they make stuff that doesn't suck occasionally each season that immediately sells out and never comes back, whereas you can be sure those shit packaged dry tees can be had in all colors at all times
they have no idea what they're doing globally as they give no independence to their foreign legs and have japan serve as the mothership; every decision is filtered through japan, a country with zero awareness of the outside world since they live in a bubble indefinitely
uniqlo continues to experience growth by just opening in new markets little by little and rising that initial hype, but they never buy their buildings and only rent so that the stores can be closed down at any time
anyone have any tips for thrifting? i'm trying to get into it to save more money while in school, but every time i have tried i've come up empty-handed
You should expect to walk out of the store without buying anything, because 99.9% of it is trash. My best tip is to just go often, ideally during weekdays.
Shop like a blind person, use your fingers to find the fabrics that FEEL good. Don't settle for something that feels shitty even if it looks cool. The quality of the fabric will determine also the quality and longevity of the garment. This fingers before eyes strategy will also help speed up the time it takes to make it through all the racks of clothes. Also check the tags. Ideally you are looking for something that is made of natural fibers: wool, cotton, linen, silk. Cashmere, mohair, angora sweaters are all amazing finds in a thrift store.
How good it is probably depends a lot on where you live. And also what size you are. And what kinda stuff you're looking for.
You could always try out consignment stores. Some of them are not too much more expensive that thrift stores while having better stuff
Bruh this thread is just a bunch of channers complaining about marketplaces and handwringing over norms
yeah theyre cool especially if you look under 25. if theyre that long theyre gonna get dirty easily tho, heads up
So true. Now if only clothes on the jp second hand market werent always fucking size 1.
Yeah, mokou got some fine clothes fr
Better include the zillion ribbons, motherfucker.
found a cool kolor (sacai's husband) blazer while thrifting, it was size 3 but it was strangling my armpits holy fuck, everything else was fine :(
feelin like a boomer for not liking the idea of wearing sweatpants to go out
rappers pay their stylists hundreds or thousands just to get dressed in the most boring ways lol
alright fashing anons, your time to shine. We have yoots here. We are trying to reverse years of hot sofa habits and to foster touching grass habits. It's going well imo, we had 40 people 15-20 yo away from home camping at the sea shore, walking in the country like they came here on the Mayflower. The problem is that nobody will do anything that will risk getting their trainers or clothes dirty. That means nobody will walk on wet ground after rain, clean the ashes out of the fire, or walk in the rain. Next problem is that they will not wear shit that makes them look goofy. They all dress like ninjas, namebrand hoodies, name trainers and tapered black name sweat pants. We looked at some images and they eventually agreed that if they had a $300 techwear ninja rain *poncho and $200 waterproof boots and $200 fitted tapered waterproof rain pants they would walk and camp when it rains.
So, fashion, how tf do I get them fitted in rain wear that they will accept at $30 each instead of $700 each? They simply will not wear practical oversized stuff. They will wear something that looks like a poncho with tapered waterproof pants. I even tried to reverse psychologize them. "My gen X dad friends really love tapered pants too." It did not work.
*I bullied them to agree to the idea of a ninja poncho because it's something that can be cheap and be worn over normal clothes in rain.
My cheap solution for something waterproof for the legs is cheap black quick dry trainers, waterproof black neoprene socks (cheap) and cheap knee length rain gaiters. This means that they can wear their own clothes, their trainers do not get dirty, and there are no more excuses.
Thoughts, thinks and suggestions Fashion anons? Where do I source cheap black rain ponchos and the rest, in quantity, so that it will look acceptable to these gear hounds. It's hard to criticize them, they are just following the logic of the successful people they see who would not go out in the rain and dirt without $500 tech gear.
I thought the youngsters stopped being into techwear ages ago. If you want cheap techwear-looking clothes, your best bet is probably alibaba/taobao/aliexpress.
anon learns about fetishization and the free market
Being fashion forward has some very negative associations here, it's label sportswear and techwear. There's nobody dressing like capital city fashion students. I spent some time on alibaba looking at rain ponchos. I also spent some time looking at North Face logo patches. It could work.
tbf clothes like tnf or patagucci are still very much "in" and it has extended to crap like helly hansen too
You know you can just ask people to annihilate your asshole. Chances are they'll say yes.
Also, if this is your fit then kudos. I'm jelly.
You could just make it yourself with a $20 hoodie and $5 screen printing kit lol
I have seen them. They exist. The easiest way to recognize that someone is not part of the working class. Most gulag-worthy section of the population IMO.
its embroidered and a $20 hoodie would feel like shit, a second-hand hoodie that was originally $100 would be better for the job
I love Demna tbh. His serious pieces are great and his ironic clothes are great new riches bait.
The Vetements DHL tshirt was performance art, and a bit of marketing, more than fashion. It's essentially saying>We're popular enough that we can do whatever we want and people will buy it
The 'performance' is the act of the sale of the tshirt; wearing it afterwards is the person saying>Yes, I overpaid of this tshirt with a DHL logo on it because I know what's relevant in current year in European fashion
It's reasonable to view it as a criticism of people paying obscene amounts of money for clothing because of artificial scarcity. It also generated alot of attention and news articles at the time because of how absurd it was. Then you can also view it as a piece of clothing which says>I know that paying $500 for a screen printed tshirt that says DHL on it is retarded but I'm doing it for satirical purposes…. heh
Which makes you a retard anyway but you get a sense of elation at being 'self aware' unlike the other people around you. DHL is, or was, considered a joke in the fashion industry in Europe because they would frequently drop the ball on timely deliveries, hence why DHL in particular was chosen.
tl;dr It's satire and marketing that worked wonders.
i feel uneasy following fashion accounts on social media, like the clothing equivalent of people watching those trashy tv shows about mcmansions, but i need inspo
I get not wanting to follow Instagram iinfluencers, but you could join communities/forums, like those on Lemmy:https://lemmy.world/search?q=fashion&type=Communities&listingType=All&page=1&sort=TopAll
Ya that looks sick. Even without the armor which is admittedly impractical I love the high rise bell bottoms, we need to bring those back
On second thought, i dont think those are bell bottoms but they are reminiscent of them to me, anyway. Normal looking ankles but the legs are wide or just look that way because of the huge slashes in them. Regardless, i like it
There are companies, like Saxx that make comfortable underwear for men.
This guy was excellent at programming but all memers take away from him are his schizo XD ramblings.

TempleOS is very interesting from a technical standpoint.
Why? I thought it was pretty primitive.
go ahead and build something "primitive" from scratch
I am not saying that what he did was not impressive, I was just curious if it was impressive on its technical merits or because of its laboriousness.

It's true, though. You need to know how to dissect an operating system if you wanna be a professional software engineer. Terry Davis was just generally proficient except he added some weird quirky religious bent to his hobby project to kill time being unemployed and disabled.
The backwards cap worked for him.
You don't need to lie
fussy indoor ninjas update if anyone's interested. they are happy to wear (black) waterproof socks with (black) teva style sandals when they are on outdoor trips and it rains. The socks are cheap light neoprene and we didn't have to take a risk on ordering a lot from alibaba. This was what it took to unlock the ability for 15 city kids to walk through wet grass. They got to see where the rich people go at the weekends and how nice it is.
Nobody cares about computer science, the field pays 4x the national average to do like 10 hours a work a day, that's the only reason like 80% of people in the field do it

obvious but not very helpful answer is going bespoke
>On the periphery of Shanghai’s central area lies a mall that houses small offices of fabric wholesalers. It is the sort of shopping I like to do – in which I consume inspirations in order to create. There are about two hundred or so companies in this mall, much smaller than its Guangzhou and Shaoxing counterparts that occupy several buildings, and a couple of post codes.
>In order to compete with one another in this expensive city, these wholesalers have to pick the best of the best from what the entire country has to offer, which is not an easy task. The result is that, within this small space, I can be looking at the best silk blends being made right now, to experimental wool treatments, to modern blends of fabrics that combine the best of what each yarn has to offer.
>Yet it pains me to say that very few of these fabrics will be seen by the typical consumers. On the rare occasions I pay a visit to physical stores – from fast fashion to sportswear to household luxury names – the range of textiles that I see are as diverse as a group of panda in captivity. The majority of customers are subjected to ten different shades of blue denim, sheer polyester chiffon dresses, lycra gym wear or ultra matte nylon rain shells. Though the colours and built quality may differ, without the aid of branding, these garments hardly possess any unique differentiation from each other. The more well-known a brand is, the less adventurous they become. As a result, most ordinary consumers are not aware of what they are missing.
>When I was in university, one of the major questions of international economics was globalisation and its effects. At the time, debates on whether globalisation will bring about convergence or divergence remained inconclusive; will we be seeing cultures merging into homogeneity, or will we be celebrating plurality in aesthetics and philosophies. Ten years later, we finally have the answer.
>Balenciaga of fifteen years ago made garments in beautiful, sometimes weird materials that few could replicate. Historic names like Fendi and Dior promulgated French lace and Scottish wools; Valentino with Italian silks. The age of goth ninja – as ridiculous as the term might sound – brought forth washed wools, jerseys and linens. Ann Demeulemeester showcased the thinnest washed lambskins as soft as a baby’s touch. Issey Miyake pushed pleated polyester while Comme des Garçons did wonders with its boiled wools and shrunken synthetics. I loved the leathers that Rick Owens experimented with from one season to the next. Those were also the days when Jan Jan van Essche and Damir Doma – renowned for their textured fabrics – were names to watch for. The world of fashion was richly diverse in its physical properties. Today, they would be considered out of touch with the post-modern, globalised post-pandemic world we live in. Mainstream fashion industry is now run with transnational-style corporatism and aesthetics, ie. corporatism style that has put the marketing cart before the horse of creativity, and aesthetics that turned people into walking advertising boards. Everything has to be flat, untextured and sterile.https://the-rosenrot.com/on-the-rising-homogeneity-of-textiles-in-fashion-industry/
>>35582>experimental wool treatments, to modern blends of fabrics that combine the best of what each yarn has to offer
I read this as: plastic impregnated fabrics with novel texture or some shit, untested for human safety with possible health effects that will emerge in 10 years. and I'm a chinaboo
you know you can blend natural fabrics too right
buhh homogeneity buhhh globalization
if there's a recession and you're poor, then stop going to stores and make your own shit
people stopped caring enough to do street fashion outside of a few Asian cities and now we all dress in cotton blend t-shirts and denim jeans and sneakers
Vetements is so shitty now that Demna left. Old Vetements was slick with specific references for a specific audience while taking the piss out of high end fashion. But now, unfortunately the brand feels a parody of it's self. Like they looked at old shows and said "funny graphics and big proportions got it👏" but completely missed the references to post USSR culture and 2000s internet culture. Big oversized blazers n shit every season with dumbass phrases like "put a finger in my ass while I take estrogen" on front is garbage and to be honest the brand should have made reissues of old pieces instead of becoming this weekend at Bernie's ass corpse of itself. It's feels like a TikTok person who knows nothing about clothes looked at 2019 Billie Elish fits and the lame revival of "alt" cheaply made "emo/goth" clothes from Hottopic and made a Alibaba brand for a trend.

You can wax gabardine wool and other tightly woven fabrics too.
i thrifted a cool pair of wide pants but it appears im a bit too fat for it because it looks like theyre riding up my ass, should i rock them anyway or is that too unsightly
get them tailored and then post a before/after
Closest to cyberpunk right now is the smartwatch/fitbit. Adding electronics to clothes should be the next step. We'll probably never achieve cybernetic implants (because it's a dumb idea which has only managed to kill a bunch of test animals, plus all tech can be hacked and you don't want your brain getting got by some kid with a computer that came out in 2008). In the future, VR will expand to helmets that can read your thoughts and you'll be able to give commands to the tech around you through your helmet.
finding clothes in the jp secondhand market that arent xs or s challenge (impossible)
I like some of Balenciaga's stuff but I wish they'd tone down the logomania.
>>35935>He doesn't know all fashion magazines now use AI generated articles and fired all their writers years ago
oh no no no
that's what 80-90% of the price tag is, tho
This is only true of certain brands like Louis Vutton. I handled a pair of jeans from them the other day and they felt like shit.
Buying for MSRP is generally a bad idea unless you're filthy rich anyway.
Guerilla, Gosplan, and Union seem gud 2 me, I think lean toward union drip tho
they probably destroy leftover stuff just like every other big fashion brand does
i wouldnt exactly call cdg a big fashion brand
ok how about pret-a-porter designer brand, whatever.
people wear those clunky new rock platform shoes but they dont dress like soul eater characters with them on they just kinda wear them with normal clothes, i dont get it
>check reviews of clothes
>low ratings is all americans whining they ruined a piece by using a drier
oh so its actually good and i just have to not be a fucking retard and hang dry, cool
currently wearing embarrassing off-brand sneakers that i bought during my late adolescence and which ive slightly outgrown
what will make me fashionable? nothing over like $500 pls
depends what you like. im into chunky boots
We’re still stuck in athleisure huh.
Why the fuck are cargo pants so expensive? I finally made the switch from jeans to cargo pants but it took me a while since Im cheap and even shitty cargo pants are like 2x the price
Because basic cargo pants are meant for blue-collar work so they should use good materials. Cargo pants with more intricate designs will be marked up due to the design itself.
I like Demna but I'm so fucking tired of seeing Balenciaga everywhere. It's always the gaudiest pieces too, not the actually interesting ones.
i gotta sell the patagonia jackets, the north face fleeces, the carhartt coats, the vintage descente… this is my Gorpcore reckoning
