    I implore the /fashion/ spergs to notice that those guys are very handsome. For the love of God, please don’t try wearing that yourselves.

    I dress dark academia and I read Homer, Boccaccio, Proust on my down time. I work minimum wage however so that is the only part which doesn’t fit.

      Seems pretty easy to think of a lot of more bourgeoise things. The people that are into DA are into it precisely BECAUSE they dont come from a rich heritage of educated WASPs, so their stereotypical clothing intrigues them as an aesthetic.

      Wool blazers are a dime a dozen at the thrift store. It’s a relatively cheap "aesthetic" and not the socially reserved niche it once was. Thank 80s office people for that.

      Nigga what? Dark academia and "stealth wealth" is plebian as heck. There’s nothing more bourgeois than to rebel against bourgeois norms/fashion (but not the trust fund).

    The issue is if you dress like you’re wearing a school uniform when you’re not attending a school with a uniform you look stupid. Teenagers have been finding ways to look edgy while still following the dress code for decades. That is the core idea behind it: being edgy but still within boundaries of the norms. You are not within boundaries of the norms when you are wearing a school uniform when you are not a student at a school with a uniform.

      It lasted for about two fashion seasons maybe and then it became passé or at least I stopped seeing it talked about earnestly. Either way, it is still my thing because it fits my personality and erudite, shy life style.

    please dont dress like this if you arent a professor or an older man. literally nobody dresses like this, even at HYPSM. It’s all hoodies, sweats and even PAJAMAS.

      Nobody cares about HYPSM anymore anyway. Even academics recognize that places like Michigan and Virginia are better places to be, and none of them dress like this at any school and never have. I’m offended at your reply because it’s so dumb.

      Yeah, I noticed that too. That’s lame.

      Pinnacle of AIDs you mean, try hard

      The only aid you need is aid in shutting your mouth.

    it’s hecking dumb. There is a particular cool academic style that’s slightly dark, which I thought this would be when I first heard the term. But this like some lame harry potter anime mashup

    It looks good, but you have to keep in mind that these are very niche environments with careful lighting for photo shoots. It looks very out of place most of the time in real life.
