It got me thinking about my own weak attempts at punk style. I'm not punk. I likely will never be punk. How many other styles am I aping by not dressing to my true self? What is that self? Should I resign to my jeans and sweaters, find a sensible job and open a Roth IRA? I'm a month out from graduating in engineering, my lifestyle changes from here on out are trending towards some white middle-class asymptote. Is this just me completing my first "lap" of the fashion cycle?

Fuck you, train punks. I hope your mom's vegan pumpkin bread wasn't that good


@vgtbls great thought. I guess it depends on how much stock you put into others' opinions (I mean deep down--not just how much you say you do or don't), and how much you want to live comfortably versus less comfortably and possibly causing friction. And who you want to hang out with in real life, and who you want to date. And what those prospective friends and lovers are open to. Straight-laced girls probably won't appreciate weird fashion crap, and 'edgy' girls probably won't appreciate looking normal and boring unless your personality is really 'cool' in the sense they conceive of as cool.

I guess one of the benefits of fashion forums is that you can lurk and watch it as a spectacle, while still feeling like a big part of it (hey lurkers reading this! make an account, i bet you have great things to contribute). So you could look like the average middle class white person and still enjoy looking at photos of this, or wear it on the weekends.

The other important answer is that lots of workplaces are casual enough to wear whatever you want, including in a startup environment. A lot of these employees would consider that a sensible job, and they probably have IRAs. But they still can look pretty interesting. White middle classness is actually a really broad spectrum these days.

I also think as you get older it's cooler to care more about what you do and how you act, than how you look. Of course you can do both, but just sayin', don't neglect one for the other.

I wager these thoughts are cognitive dissonance between who I "am" versus how I "look". I don't want my clothes to misrepresent who I am. Or even fully represent who I am. I feel like there's some middle ground between the two.

I've built a wardrobe around irony and appropriation and it doesn't fit with who I think I am anymore. My selections in daily wear represent me, but only if I'm not actively trying to put together a "cool outfit". In this way I think care-tags (and the internet in general) has kind of dulled my sense of self.

Does the fact that I force myself to wear something reflect an unconscious dislike of that thing?

Well patrik does love his burritos...

I'd put him around 5'9" or 5'10" but it's been a while since I last saw him @starfox64

I want like.. guidi or something boots in brown with a zip. But not all floppy and weird so maybe something with an upturned toe. Something that can be worn under trousers.

like this guy on the left but more chunky and more brown. but the correct trouser interface.

@smiles, maybe something from m.a+ like like these?

edit: lol maybe not these exactly. i didn't see that these were women's. but yeah, m.a+ might have what you're looking for as far as upturned toe and more structured upper

I kept seeing H2O slides absolutely everywhere in Denmark. Just like Adidas slides (black, one big strap to stay) but with a tricolor H2O logo on the strap. Had to assume they were an unbelievably cheap national brand because of the sheer diversity of people wearing them - so, can someone tell me who H2O are?

EDIT: Now I know. 23 euros. Danish brand.

http://www.unisportstore.com/football-b ... ur/121225/

Classic slide from Danish brand H2O, which is perfect for a trip to the swimming pool, or use in your spare time. The H2O slide is extremely popular and this model is one of the best selling model ever.

The slide is made with a solid PU outsole, which makes them extremely durable, while still giving the support you need.
The hard outsole also makes sure to train water from the sandal.

The insole and upper are made from a soft plastic material, which makes them incredibly comfortable to wear. The soft upper also gives good ventilation.

Well, they aren't seen as fashionable but pretty comfortable, so I just thought this iteration was cool for girls, since I could actually see it in some streetwear fits. However, I don't think you'll see slides in school as they really aren't that practical if you have any distance to travel.

January 1st is the beginning of no cop for me

to help the temptation of buying a bunch of stuff i probably dont need, I cut down my clothing wants list from 3 pages (wayy too much )to only one.

Will be quitting my job around Feb so i have some money to do stuff but not really buy clohtes. Would like to spend more time with my friends. Once summer rolls around i'll probably work at Jcrew w a good friend of mine

Feels good >(smiling)
