i mean good for those guys but lol @ their style/editorials

ha. i'm currently reading that article. most of the stuff is way too costume-y, but if they toned it down by like 500% and added SF dirt to the mix, that's kinda how i dress

i actually don't dress anything like those guys, but i think 'dirty urban prep' is a pretty good descriptor

jaxon, Friday, 19 August 2011 02:58 (eight years ago) link

well i feel like 'if they toned it down by x% and added some y than youll have described p much like every 'stylish' dude in urban north america so

you do have a point, mr pencil

i like SE, i respect the style tho they're definitely a overhyped at this point. i think their content is actually pretty well considered compared to a lot of other style blog bullshit.

also i know at this point it's hard to tell what's an actual real life street style shot and what's an editorial styled / staged to resemble such, regardless i think it's kinda silly to dismiss their editorial stuff as 'costumey' or ott because, well, isn't an editorial the appropriate format for costumey, ott looks?

not gonna defend brooklyn circus dude, tho, dude looks ridiculous and believe me it takes quite a LOT of look for me to say that

i really want someone to reconsider proportion and volume in menswear tbh i dont care how 'costume-y' their looks are i just think theyre tired. tailoring, prep, fabrics blah blah blah its all other ppls ideas yknow

pennywise #foolish (Lamp), Friday, 19 August 2011 03:33 (eight years ago) link

yup i mean i hope the day is approaching when fashion dudes will stop thinking that showing off their ankles 94/7 is a dashing look

elmo argonaut, Friday, 19 August 2011 03:38 (eight years ago) link

socks are back in

jaxon, Friday, 19 August 2011 03:49 (eight years ago) link

i don't even mean just the sockless thing, i mean like hemming pants with a deep break as opposed to cropping them at the ankle

elmo argonaut, Friday, 19 August 2011 03:54 (eight years ago) link

i like those dudes.

also like the brooklyn circus dude in that photo!

phil-two, Friday, 19 August 2011 16:49 (eight years ago) link

haha i mean i try to be open minded and everything but i just can't with that camo

elmo argonaut, Friday, 19 August 2011 16:55 (eight years ago) link

really? its just camo? or you mean the cherry red + camo? i think he looks awesome tho.

haha hate to know what you'd think of the ridiculous things in my closet then.

phil-two, Friday, 19 August 2011 17:07 (eight years ago) link

honestly idk, it's hard for me to put my finger on what's buggin me, i think it's the mashup of newsboy / schoolboy / cowboy / soldier elements and then with the alligator watch band and the turquoise rings -- it's all too much in too many different directions imho

and you know, that would probably all be okay with me, if not for dudes super-serious demeanor! lighten up a little, u know?

When You Assume…

OCTOBER 12, 2011

Please don’t assume:

That I think you should dress like me.

That I write exclusively to promote my own specific, personal aesthetic thesis.

That I think you should buy everything we feature on this site.

That I will think less of you if you don’t buy something we feature on this site.

That I expect people to spend more money on their clothes.

That I believe one aesthetic fits all.

That I think a wardrobe should be purchased all at once, at retail prices.

That I think everyone should wear a tie.

That I’m judging you.


Let’s be friends.

five years pass...

what's good in 2017? looking for men's/androgynous-all-purpose content that avoids the omnipresent How To Dress Like A Gentleman adult-cosplay oppression which is so uncomplimentary to my tender cazh scruff soul

four months pass...

ogmor's post above keeps on popping into my head as being of continuing relevance and importance.

i never want to hear or see the word sprezzatura again. what are the options?

Fizzles, Monday, 10 July 2017 08:00 (two years ago) link

I'm just following a few japanese dads on instagram ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ogmor, Monday, 10 July 2017 13:44 (two years ago) link

probably not what you want but I like for figuring out how to transition from just suits to a casual amalgamation of things. and I like

those are both probably sprez-heavy site though.

also they only talk about really expensive clothes, but I just hope to find them in thrift stores or on ebay.

I guess I'm still in #menswear world, but I know it will pay off someday.
