truly why slip-ons and shoes with zippers are superior


Slip-ons, and to an extent, zippered shoes feature a problem where the shoes don't fit as well as they would with laces (at least in my experience). It's mostly pull-up boots and slip-on shoes though that seem to have more heel slip inherently. Zippers are cool but you can't tighten or loosen at all.

I hate shoelaces so much. Always either too long or too short.

On a related note, I wish all boots and high-tops had zippers.

I heard Hedi Slimane is going to drop some shoes this season that don't have any laces.

ughh, my hair looks like, not good. It's gotten to the point where the wave hits so it kind of flares out (shouts out to 8th grade me). fighting the urge to buzz it. I don't even know if longer locks would even look good on me.

No Cop Club is taking heavy losses. May be forced underground until the barg situation is more favourable to armed resistance. One of our key strategists Major General John Maximillian "Hacks" Dunning (Viscount Wisdsor) is rumoured to have fallen casualty to a 3 inch square of fabric with buttonholes on it.

I've needed a haircut for weeks, but I've been incredibly broke so I'm stuck with this overgrown HY for a few more days at least. Wish I had 90's Leo hair but the middle part just doesn't happen for me and my weird hairline :(

My wardrobe is really small right now (1 pair of pants and ~10 tops including t-shirts, polos, and button-ups, and sweaters) but I still have a bunch of light jackets and shoes and I'm really enjoying it so far this spring. The weather has been pretty chill lately and I don't see myself having put away my jackets/sweaters any time soon, so it's giving me lots of chances to experiment with different combos. It's fun.

That bullet proof vest @19:27 would look really cool if you added sleeves and removed the metal plates from the inside. That video was a great watch.

Shopping for weddings are so difficult if you dont wear color. The bride specifically requested to see me in color so I cant talk my way into wearing gray or navy or something equally dull. I'm tempted to go in a completely different direction from my style and go crazy with print / color but then again I dont want to drop cash on something I wont be able to wear often, if at all, after the wedding.

Times like this are when I envy the men; you guys can just put on a suit and call it a day.

I'd go see someone to size you feet you could have a problem which requires an insole or the like, probably why a less supported shoe feels more comfortable as the insoles of both of those are moulded compared to a hm joint, both models are also pretty narrow.

Usually when I put a fit together there is always something that bugs you for no reason, proportionally or material and fit wise these tiny things that irk me more than they should are the bane of my existence. With this said occasionally I put something together and I just sit back and go "wow" not in the sense that omg guys look aren't I great, but from the sense that deep inside the outfit achieves what I wanted it to do perfectly and it brings a smile to my face on a personal level, gives you a warm fuzzy feeling like you've just been asked out by Karen Gillian who's taking you to christopher raeburns ss15 show. These outfits are 1 in a 1000 that we just don't want to take off and make you want to tell everyone about why you're wearing it.

Now your turn, what outfits of yours make you feel this way? That you put them on and feel perfect

Here's mine

Spoiler:
Image


Why is it my current perfect outfit?

School uniforms are my absolute favourite thing in the world, spent 11 years of my life wearing one 5 days a week and I miss it with a passion albeit with strong rose tinted glasses. The culture that surrounds school and how different groups interact and relate fascinates me and specifically what they wear, how they'd modify their uniforms with a slightly exposed tee, a rolling of the sleeve or all black sneakers just to add a bit of flair for uniqueness or status. The sweater over a shirt with the black jeans represents this with the blue being that of my primary school, which played a major role in my development of clothes and dressing differently being encouraged when my mum would take me to the soccer shop and by me these dope plaid Ben Sherman knock offs. Remember going to the astro and getting asked why I'm all dressed up only for the 11 year old me to reply "it's just a shirt". It's only when these moments have passed and we have time to reflect that we realise turning points in our development. The sweater being what it is in more trend terms reminds me of Chris Shannon who I absolutely fucking love at the moment, his styling and vision is so on point it makes me smile every time I see it. Finally the mac lends itself to the over arching themes of British culture in my wardrobe and the hooligans I admire so much. For footwear you're just going to have to imagine all black reebok work outs as a throwback to the school shoe trainers all of us uniform wearers used to try and get away with.

If I really wanted to take this a step further id write messages all over the shirt to represent the tradition of having mates write on your school shirt when you leave, but I'll save that for another time.

/end self indulgent post

Let's here your reasons behind your perfect outfit

Edit:

Oucho is correct, I apologise for writing like a cunt but I've taken too many film and politics classes it's engrained in me

Maj, my perfect outfit would be this:

..simply because I felt that I've achieved the perfect balance between comfort and drama. Often when I wear something comfortable I thought, "well this is nice, but nice doesn't cut it.", unless of course I'm just getting the groceries.

Maj that's an awesome post. My perfect outfit is probably

Spoiler:
ImageImage


Basically all my favorite pieces together. The pants are super comfy, the boots indestructible, the tee at perfect length, the bag looking like some octopus alien demon that is attempting to hack into my nervous system via spinal column. The parka has that armor-like quality that Yohji sometimes talks about—I feel safe, I feel hidden, and I also feel strangely, uh, sexy? It's not even because of all the straps. I think one of the reasons I'm interested in clothing is because it's a very easy, convenient way to transform myself. That parka transforms me closest to some ideal self. Urban spaceman? Desert nomad? I don't know, but it makes me feel like me, that feels real good.
