Nine months late but I just saw the kanye x APC collab on the APC site and thought it was cool. The pieces felt like some sort if hip hop capsule wardrobe

I wish it was socially acceptable to wear my high school letter jacket in college.

dye it black, remove the letter, and it's now a fashionable varsity jacket.

Just found a extremely old Carhartt hoodie at my parents place.
Was made before they changed to their current logo.

i need to shop at other places. 97% of my wardrobe (clothes, not shoes) are from the same place! what are your favourite womens clothing shops? or men's that go down town xs.

i'm not very excited about clothes at all anymore. i wasn't impressed by anything, from any brand, for sale in fw13.

i think part of this is looking for happiness in other things like interpersonal relationships. and part is simply having enough clothes. i don't really need more knits, more jackets, more pants, etc. it's nice, but i miss being excited about it! in the past couple weeks i've windowshopped for an hour at a time, a few times, and bought nothing.

i feel you eccentrica. style-wise im in a weird place. im getting a bit tired of the rat race. i want to look cool but i either don't have the money to look cool or the time to make myself cool and therefore be cool and look cool.

still, im damn glad to be back in nyc after a little family thing in Southern California. It wasn't that there isn't any fashion in Socal, its just that it's a very specific, very Abercrombie, very "laid back" style. everyone looked like they were about to go mountain biking, or going to a car show, or come back from the beach or gym.

it was 80 degrees. better wear uggs.

had on short shorts. better put on this beanie.

flip flops everything.

SO MANY long sleeve t-shirts with logos of gardening services.

i've only been buying yohji,cog, and facetasm for the past few months so i guess i've slowed down as well. comfortable.

Edit: not like a bunch of each. but just limiting myself to those brands

Can somebody school me on pleats? More specifically, how it affects the silhouette of a pair of pants.

Image
Is the rounder top-block of these yyph pants caused by the pleats? Or is it entirely cut?

Just found a pair of dress slacks with pleats, and I want a better excuse for not wearing them than "they're unfashionable."

My mother insists that I have "GQ style" because I own a blue blazer. I'm not mad though - when I asked about it she only knew of two men's styles, preppy and GQ. Plus she birthed me so I ain't mad.

Did receive my favorite comment so far: Kristina said I looked like a '90s mugger. Must be doin' something right.

looking through old fit pics and i really miss the way i used to dress, not all of it as some/most was absolute garbage but there were a few things. next few purchases will/have been taking that and working it in a non regretful way so i don't end with a split wardrobe again.

i like these

Spoiler:

shape wise they're pretty nice as it's something different from my usual 'relaxed' style, bit more modern, i bought a couple of polos recently for a reason to break the black jeans and docs out and have another larger purchase lined up to get a bomber like jacket i'm more comfortable with length wise. looking forward till the summer when i can get something like http://i.imgur.com/eGvMbfc.jpg?3 or http://i.imgur.com/NUtYv4kh.jpg?1 out as really it's some of the most comfortable clothes.

on a slightly different note i had to explain to my work mates about my 'hobby' which i usually avoid talking about unless asked but i tried a new direction and just said i liked design explaining how the bits i own all have a little story to them and or specific design features. used the example of the goggle and aitor's back history to it and explained about his stereotype's piece and why it's like it is the way it is and it went over quite well which was cool. got me thinking of how my wardrobe is almost loosely the same in that it's pretty much 4 themes (ruffruggd, hooligan, sportswear and milspec) which are all linked together through the use of recurring silhouettes which my month of waywt really helped me see, breaking it down like this has made it easier to see how i can expand my wardrobe and link some more diversity in. tend to like nailing one area down then moving on to another 'theme' and the next chapter will definitely be a mod look, fred perry, check shirts, black jeans which should all work well with my current wardrobe options.

i'm worried this post has come off as self indulgent but i don't mean it too, every few months after i get stuck in a rut i like to sit back and reflect and see what to do next. coming months should be fun :woop:

I know, sometimes I feel like a bit of a wanker whenever I get self reflective about my own personal style. I mean even the term 'personal style' has this egotistical jizz to it.

Patricia Field boutique (in NoHo has some pretty cool stuff. It's a very loud, gay style that's forward looking and subversive. but pretty cool streetwear and vintage influenced things, too.

I've always been clean cut/pretty boy and I've been going through a fuck it phase. I'm keeping stubble, wearing less fitted clothes, and I'm loving every minute of it. If only I can get rid of my taper pants habit...

I'm interested in way too many brands. Feels like I'll never pinpoint my style :+(

Anyone familiar with this feeling?

Reading up on other forums; I guess it's considerably easier to become a tester if you wear a size 9 US.

Lucky me :woop:

Teck: decided to keep the jacket for now. It's grown on me. Haven't bought anything since that y's coat and junya pants about a month ago. When I get back to Hong Kong I'll pick up some more facetasm I think. Or maybe some yohji pants.

I sized up on uniqlo t shirts and feel like I never have to buy expensive t's again. Finding that perfect plain t shirt is the best feeling (smiling)
