Hey guys,

21/m/Canada/uni student/etc.

I know we're not allowed to talk about other places here really, but I've been around other communities for a while. I know most people who participate in the well-known fashion areas of the internet cross-post everywhere, so it's a similar mix of people everywhere, but I'm just looking for a fresh place to hang out if you guys will have me. I got invited here by someone from a certain place over the summer when CT was down, lurked it recently and liked the jizz.

I'm always looking to learn more and get inspired. I have a bunch of hobbies but in terms of fashion I've been chasing mid-tier contemporary stuff, ethical stuff, and been trying to narrow down my wardrobe for a bit, I only draw on flintstone from high-end stuff, maybe that will change.

I need a picture. I had an idea when I first registered but I totally forgot.

the big fuck off shiny eye thing is far too orwellian and the platforms are still shit. Inside is nice though.

I'm in Worcester (the good one), we should meet up and argue furiously about how the other is wrong over raeburn and London designers over a drink, maybe have a fight in selfridges and throw each other through the windows of autograph before hugging it out.

From everything I hear Hull actually has considerably more culture than Cambridge.

yeah they're definitely trying with the festivals and from what i gather the student life isn't bad, welly's pretty good but by and large the place is pretty grim, no comparison to leeds imo... my viewpoint might be skewed from the uni but cambridge is a fucking weird place

I live up in Arbury aka outside the known student world. Shout if you need pointers about anything.

Also invite me to your formals so I can get an excuse to wear my suits.

ah cool, is there anywhere you recommend for shopping around here apart from sevenwolves/dogfish? it's all a bit middle england, although i did see a guy in those prada creeper espadrille things today which threw me a bit

formals are great if you want to end up looking like the before shot on an advert for vanish, you need the gown for protection but then nobody can see your siqq fit anyway :'( strong novelty tie game is the only answer

Giulio actually has a decent array of certain garms (stoney, bit of Acne, some Chip Shannon was in last season, various hardcore artisinal goth bits, Lubiam, a reasonably prescient moschino buy). It's very useful to go in there so you can be reminded what retail fashion is and become turned off it for a couple of days.

But generally no, there is nowhere I recommend. Stick to ebay.co.uk.

Go to Oz Alterations for tailoring, get your bike fixed by the dude in the market, get your burritos from Nanna mexico, get your cakes from afternoon tease, best pizza is from Charlie's, Clowns has a secret upstairs terrace, avoid fitzbillies, gardenia is overrated, the falafel van outside tk-maxx on saturdays slays, don't listen to people who are obsessed with steak and honour they are insane and think that buying a burger from a van is an incredible novelty, savinos, carlo's grill and zi's peri peri are underrated, I can't work out a difference between any of the barbers on king's street and feel antagonistic towards almost all of them, there are no good swimming pools.

idk, a literal white t shirt museum could be pretty awesome in the way of that one museum in istanbul with the 500 cigarette butts carefully arranged by event/lipstick stain color – "this one's got mustard on" "that was a great year for Uniqlo" "this shoulder seam is very neo-Romantic, very Henry Moore" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

shit was i supposed to do this before i started posting fits

oh well, yo im zach, i live in canada and im 17 years young!! im a senior in hs and no idea what direction im going in uni (smiling) i started taking care of my appearance like 3 years ago, but got into actual 'fashion' about a year ago. so i still don't know what im doing lmao. looking for criticism, flintstone n tips i guess

im active on r/teenmfa, sometimes r/streetwear and mfa (username sonsofjacob), and ive dabbled in /fa/. still learning c-t, but it seems chill. one question though, is there no reply function? i know you can comment when you vote, but can you reply to a comment?

anyway, that is all. i guess. im not interesting at all. coo
