holds up 10x better when viewed just as APC stuff. kanye sets his own bar at the top and while this is certainly nice its nowhere near as impressive as i'm sure he thinks it is.

anyone hazard a guess why the tee is $30 cheaper this time around?

@birdman caw

first thing i've found about electric cottage

tits+pussy on govteen forum is very interested in them along with some other cool brands circa 2004

edit:

turns out it's the old brand name for fragment http://post-new.com/#feature=node/541

JO: Why did you change the name from Electric Cottage to fragment design?
HF: I was kind of tired, so thought changing the name would make it fresh. Electric Cottage was actually named by Shawn Stussy, he came to my house and I had a lot of organic furniture, pieces made from bamboo, but also all the technology around and he said it was like an "Electric Cottage" and I really liked it so that's why I used it for the brand.

why do online fashion communities seem to be so heavily skewed towards a male perspective when fashion is much more often considered an effeminate interest?

i read somewhere that it's because ~generally speaking~ guys can't usually talk about fashion with their IRL friends because it still isn't a mainstream hobby, whereas that's less of a problem with girls (although there's a greater representation of girls in STEM on online fashion forums because those are traditionally male-dominated fields). someone tell me if i'm really off-base, this is also something i've noticed empirically.

Girls have their fashion blogs and blogging communities. Most guys aren't into that sort of thing... yet. So they drift towards forums where they feel less alone with their interests. Hence the same hobbies/interests/passion are conveyed through different channels of communication.

What really helped me develop my love for fashion was ditching all the people holding me back and finding fashun friends.

Actually to be honest what happened was I dropped all my friends cause I was dating some girl. By the time we broke up they were no longer open to my friendship so I had to find new friends. I went to an MFA meetup a little over a year ago and met a few people (two whom help me with my site). From there they really helped me become more open with fashion because 8/10 times thats all we talk about in our group text.

On one hand, I think it's really unfortunate that you had to ditch your old friends. But at the same time, if they're not gonna take you back after you've been focusing on a girl (look, we've all been there...), then are those really the friends you wanted to have in the first place? I've been lucky, I've kept some friends and made fashun friends.

Fuck a fake friend where your real fashun friends at?

just got my first COS order in the mail. i ordered the jacquard top and the slim fit light wash jeans. this is the first time a small has been too small for me (in the case of the top), and the first time I couldn't fit my feet into a pair of jeans. the leg opening on them is 5.5 inches........ maybe i got fat. problem is they fit perfectly everywhere, except for the part where it takes me 10 minutes to coax them around my feet -- which aren't even that large, at 10.5 US. maybe i should just return them

From people-watching for the past couple weeks, I've come to realize that a coherent color palette goes a LONG way towards making a person look like they know what they're doing, even if they don't.

That's perfect, thank you. I'm thinking of grabbing a pair just so I have some light wash jeans, tag size 29 would probably so me good then.

Thank you!

How does a 5.5" leg opening even look on a dude? Sounds like a turrible idea

I'm not sure where I'm headed anymore. I've sort of been wandering aimlessly the last year or so, heading in this general direction of young-new-yorker modern sportswear ervell/supreme type thing but at the same time I remain interested in so many other things. There's a desire to be everything all at once. Denimhead repro-fiend, nbhd-wtaps streetwear weeaboo, raeburn-cabourn heritage casual, and even sleek raf-schneider-bless modern man at times. Everything seems so random and meaningless (or maybe too meaningful?). I don't know. I don't really like these types of posts, but I just wanted to write something I guess. Fits the thread I suppose.

Maybe I'm just meant to wander the proverbial wilderness for the rest of my life.

Like, Olive, cream, navy. Or like Optic white + bright yellow.

Person could be wearing whatever, and, at least to my eyes, look much better than the person next to him in a well-fitting but bright SuperDry graphic tee with perfectly fitting distressed jeans.

I mean maybe this is me being basic but if your clothes don't match or are obviously wack then someone wearing simple shit that matches is gonna look better

I HAVE FOUND THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION TO BLISTERS (damn you, impromptu hike + EG vans...)

Extra-thin Hydrocollid dressings. Omg.

1. They are super tacky so they won't slip off in the shower like a band aid
2. They are sold in 4x4 squares so you can cut to size
3. They help heal the blister faster by forming a gel thingy.

(an RN recommended these to me, loved them so much I felt like I had to share)

More info here and here.
