BBS11 looks like it ripped off HBA wholesale, it should be better but doesn't look it.

I was surprised to see my very own nana-vest in the scan transparenti posted! I found it at goodwill in my hometown last year or something, and bought it on a whim, not really knowing how I'd like it. It's actually become one of my fav things to throw on top of any outfit really. It might be water resistant idk? water beads and rolls off of it so that's kinda neat. It is highly handy for carrying around snacks or a medium sized textbook, depending on which pocket is being used.

Cool tag design, definitely a different "feel" than current banana
Image
I have never actually utilized this pocket, but it's fully functional and looks neat-o honestly. I've put things in it though, and I could seriously carry around several notebooks or a textbook. basically a backpack.

I too found an old BR Vest this one was at Belmont Army in Chicago.

The guy on the army surplus level loved my TNF Purple Label bag which was cool.

there's something kinda sad about going to KTT or other streetwear forums and seeing normal hs/college students try to keep up stylistically with multimillionaire rappers that are A) rich enough to only need to wear any particular piece once and B) constantly given free shit from brands

It sucks even more that most rappers aspire to become the king of fuccbois. And the ones who are decent, like ASAP Rocky, seem so contrived and calculated, advised by teams of stylists and PR people that whatever they say or wear just seems disingenuous and politically motivated, as in the case of off-whtie and HBA. He might've been one of the first rappers who was internet fashion approved, but even the most culturally challenged sufu poster back in the 2000s with money could rep Rick and Raf. Now Raf has become this weird originally high fashion inspired by street fashion for high fashion but now for street fashion label, as coveted as Supreme, and flipped for equally ridiculous prices, because of rappers and instagram celebrities.

I should make clear that there's definitely something admirable and...egalitarian? in what Rocky has done with high fashion. But I just can't take him seriously with all the fashion beef and Jeremy Scott collab sneakers which were 10000x worse than yeezys. Essentially, they portray themselves as aesthetes, or at least people with innovative taste, but I just can't see them as and having either. Them being the ian connors, travis scotts, etc. Maybe I'm too cynical, but it just seems like any idiot with 10k can buy a bunch of Raf and old HL and wear them in a music video and act like they know what's up. I'm waiting for that dope boy who only rocks Jan Jan Van Essche and Edwina Hoerl.

@BobbyZamora, didn't know that, I stand corrected.

feel like expecting rap stars to like JJVE is a bit much, you're not gonna see 2chainz wearing mori-boy shit. ye and rocky have worn soloist/number (n)ine though so that's a good start maybe

rocky can afford to never have to wear the same fit twice ofc but he's friends with michelle lamy so he's cool

i agree with you on the rest though, feel like tyga might be the king of fuccbois but i don't know if anyone wants to dress like tyga cause he's THE WORST

for as much shit as ian gets i don't mind him. I think he looks cool and it seems as though he has held somewhat credible positions (on the creative team of nike and supreme, iirc) and now he is making his own stuff. I think he spends his money on stupid shit sometime (pastel grills, lol) but I think he is having fun and doing what he wants to do, so I give him some props.

trying to force a distinction between what we're doing (people interested in fashion on a forum platform) and youtube fashion bloggers (people interested in fashion using youtube as a platform) is kinda strange tbh

that doesn't mean that a lot of fashion vloggers aren't narcissistic fucks, but cmon

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

fashion blogging/forums is sometimes (often) good, but vlogging on yt is always absolutely horrific. where are the quality content generators at? they cant all be narcissistic fucks??????

there has 2 be something beyond holding a camera 3 inches from your face going "it's flaxy flaxsisters" and then shoving it in a gloomy white bag seeing a load of clothes all in plastic and possibly a receipt before it choppily cuts between shots of people all wearing the same jacket and angsty teens smoking. all topped off with some "chill electronic music"???

or

some person sitting in front of a rail going "mmm yeah this is my lates pick up, got it from _______ yeahh, errrr it's really cool, i just layer it and sometimes just want to be comfy ahahah, cut and quality is really nice, really good buy, sleve cut is good and ummmm yeah definately an essential for me now going to order another 6 all in grey,, quality is great yeah ahaha"

or

"how do you feel about x brand" to everyone in a queue and edit it to be the most cringe responses

it's all v yuk

need a yt fashion saviour

This is 90% of what people who buy clothes say about clothes, regardless of the platform. For exmples check the 2015 retrospective thread (my own entry there included) or the transparenti little boxes thread. Possibly it's just more obviously irritating on youtube because you can see their face.

forums, and especially the trasparenti thread, get a pass on this imo because of the way those details are an aspect of a relationship in a community, where youtube is almost completely one-sided, almost like when you see (or are on) a boring date where one person is just droning at the other one. i think the trasparenti thread is the strongest example of the relationship fostered by clothing (again, keeping in mind that i believe clothing choices are an aspect of personality) because it involves one person who is in the know and has access making decisions based on how they understand other people, and showing that off and giving feedback is a sort of way to say "hey, look at this reflection of me through these things as viewed by someone else." it's probably pretty easy to handwave as narcissistic, but i think that's a very expansive definition of narcissism.

I don't really like YT fashion people because for many of the reasons stated above I find them boring or whatever. But I'm not sure if we can really compare them all that much to us because they cater to such a different audience I feel. I don't think those that watch people talking about what clothes are cool or whatever overlap with those of us here or on a lot of forums. Granted I haven't seen a lot of them but they the ones I have seen tend to dress in a very derivitive way. The ones I've seen have all been streetwear ones so I get the sense that the viewers are there to just see how to dress "cool" in the moment. They aren't there to develop a personal style or learn much about the clothes just how to look cool for the times. There's nothing wrong with this of course but it differs a lot at least for me, as I am always trying to actively learn more about different aspects of fashion and come to appreciate them. I see the mentality of trying to be cool on reddit a lot where communities set up their uniforms for what's fashionable right now and only tell people to get these items. Not like I'm not guilty of this myself sometimes but I've found myself branching way further our since joining up here.

i feel like this is a good "be the change" moment, like some c-t user with good onscreen presence and some editing skill could start a yt channel and fuck the whole game up

cause i feel like fashion lends itself so well to a video format but i feel like there's a serious drought of quality fashion content on youtube, i've rewatched mr. porter's stuff enough to get tired of it and when i'm bored i still rewatch stuff like vids of errolson hugh talking about zippers or w/e

it's a shame impulse online never really got off the ground, that acronymjutsu parody was exactly what i'm talking about in terms of original interesting fashion video content

Im not really familiar with any Youtube fashion vloggers, but they cant be any worse than all these 'influencers', 'stylists' and 'street style photographers' that pop up all over Instagram now, they are everywhere, try and search through a #rafsimons or an #acnestudios hashtag and you cant move for them fuckers, not to mention all the east London cool kids standing in front of council tower blocks.

Difference being that vlogging on youtube is seen as 'some nerd shit' whereas on Instagram its just that one moment, despite taking all afternoon to get that one moment, chain smoking cigarettes because you fucked up the last photo but still want to look cool and staring nonchalantly off into the distance on the 64th take trying to reinforce the notion that "Yes, I really do look this cool all the time" to your Instagram followers. Youtube will only go to show how shy and awkward they might be and you cant go mixing fashion with that vlogging nerd shit because you are supposed to be one of the cool kids - theres why the lack of fashion content on Youtube exists.

Im not cynical at all.

as far as my knowledge goes the only person who has won the internet fashion game thus far is @bela even though forumites, instagramnerds, tumblradoos, youtubes, redacktors, and vineyettes try

we're all playing the same game even though we have different cards

if i have learned anything from grailed, your guilt will be for nothing because the buyer will probably not pay despite their offer
