    You can definitely express yourself creatively with clothes but the people who harp on about how their clothes are an extension of themselves and take it too far are usually lacking in creativity and personality

    When you go into tasteless LARP-mode or look like an avant-garde runway piece in public.

    Maximalism and eccentricity is fine in the right context and right personality. But there is a point of no return.

      When your fit doesn’t match your vibe or personality. If that guy’s not talking about birds being fake, the earth being flat, or demons living within our 5G phones, then he should tone it down.

      These are surprisingly accurate posts. Your clothing should, at least in part, reflect your lifestyle and interests. I’ve read that Tiktok zoomers that post videos and photos of themselves dressed in strange and fantastic (that doesn’t mean good) ways don’t actually dress that way in real life out of fear of judgement or something. They’re wearing a costume, not clothing.

        Yeah it’s a weird orobouros type situation where they wear weird fashion to signal that they “like fashion” because they think that to like fashion they have to wear weird shit like the examples in this thread

          Why is it extreme to think that crazy people should be isolated from society? Are you enjoying the uprise in mass shootings?

            People like this make me believe in psychiatric institutionalization.

            This. All our problems got worse when we closed the mental institutions with the facade of "we’ll have halfway homes in everyone’s neighborhood instead of these scary institutions!" Then everyone said, "Not in my backyard you’re not!" Never got around to happening, so here we are, transvestites openly grooming children, being forced to celebrate sodomy at the risk of losing your job, public schools are homosexual communist indoctrination camps, along with mass shootings on the rise. Really glad we started affirming insane people instead of putting them in a rubber room.

    The threshold starts with wearing fabric that covers you. Anything else than au naturelle c’est un attempte a trompe la societe que tu est plus que humaine.

      this is /fashion/ not /cgl/

      Self-expression through clothing is immediately desperation for attention and passive-aggressive. That is IF you consider that clothing is some "expression" of the self, like a materialist dumbass.

      why are you here?

      people judging you based on your clothes is going to happen no matter what. it’s your choice to try and make them judge you in a way you’d like.

    the point you yourself stop being comfortable, and stop being able articulate what it is that you’re doing if asked is the moment you become a LARPer.

    If you find yourself pushing against imagined criticism, or asking others what they think about your outfit, it’s because you haven’t internalized the ideas you’re trying to express, which is LARP.

    it’s that what he’s wearing is too clean, along with himself being so. He’s trying to look crazy and homeless, but it’s contextually clear he’s probably not. And when you’re style is inauthentic and loud, you stand out enough for people to judge you.

    the more complex/outlandish your outfit is, the more people will expect out of you. you cant wear some elaborate goofninja shit and just be some guy who goes home every night to play genshin and watch hoe-boive clips. you BETTER be into urbex or play an instrument at the very least.

    At what point do you people mind your own hecking business? Ffs let him wear a dress made of grocery bags for all I care. What do you care what someone’s motivations are for the clothes they put on their own body?
