      this, and also trying to buy heritage but finding out it’s all outsourced too.

      I dress like a 2012 hipster lumbersexual soi gay. Flannels, jeans (but not skinny), boots, glasses and a beard.
      I hate the connotations, but I’ve tried several styles and this one is what I like the most and I’m more comfortable wearing.
      Sometimes I wish things were different in this regard, but it is what it is. At least I got this fashion thing solved.

      anyone who calls you a hipster anon is in all likeliness the insecure and snobby one to care to pass a judgement. variations of a flannel, jeans, and boots existed before 2012.

      that hecking mullet and moustache combo with the shitty american trad tattoos and bright button ups that those stupids like idubbz and that curtis have. looks so hecking ugly and they think they’re the coolest hecking people.
      looking like gay hicks but from LA.
      that shit is so ugly I can’t even look at people who look like that

      this trend i can respect because it’s aware its ironic. most other trends try to impress but that’s not ever the case. sure annoying but it’ll go soon.

      Skinny and slim fit pants on men need to die. Regular fit or wider should be the norm. Quit emphasizing a secondary female sex characteristic and start adding visual mass to your legs, it looks better on fatsos too. The worst thing is a "hip and trendy" fourty-something guy wearing a blazer with a white t-shirt and skintight jeans with his belly hanging out of his jeans’ waist, looking like a hecking stork..

      yeah that’s hecking atrocious. wearing skinny/slim is no disguise for all those donuts and slurpees.

        You’re probably right. One of the things I like the most about this style is tgat you can wear it until old age without looking out of place. I think I’ve got called hipster twice IRL and it was in good humour. Sometimes I forget about the disconnect between the opinions of terminally online people and the real world.

        too skinny is cringe but slim fit fit me the best, I am almost 6’2, skinnyfat with feminine fat distribution with narrow upper body, wide hips, fat thighs and slim calves, anything wider than slimfit and I just look unnecessarily fatter and weird, also because of my wide hips the size I wear is usually I can’t get jeans that are tight on my thighs because it will be even tighter on my belt line, so usually the size I take on slimfit is comfortable on the belt line and roomy enough without being too lose and not tight at all, also sit comfy on the calves as well without being too loose and looking like a goofball

        >too skinny is cringe but slim fit fit me the best
        Slim as in contouring your leg but not skintight looks pretty good as long as you’re not noticeabily overweight. Regular/straight with a bit of taper are also good without beinh as dated as skinnies and overtly slim and tapered jeans.

      this lol, and when i try to ask for brands i should try and find second hand to avoid spending way more than necessary for a hecking coat, i get told to cough it up anyways. the fact that it happens is the proof that every single person on this board is a larper, because i never see all this expensive shit that people claim to be well worth the money ever being posted. real people do not spend entire pay checks on single items of clothing because its stupid, and the people of the 70s you try so hard to larp as would laugh at you if you even suggested the idea of doing so

        second hand is the way

        cool shit I have second had: 3 armani sport jackets, 1 oscar de la renta sport jacket, 2 zegna sport jackets, a suit from armani, a wool topcoat from versace, couple shirts from the gay guy with the cat (pbuh), a silk suit from bijan, various wool pants from RL, just a ton of cool shit. Trench coat from CK, trench from some british brand. Not sure why thrifting isn’t more popular. Most of this shit cost me $20 or less. Maybe $40 for the suits.

      If you look at old catalogs and adjust the prices for inflation, clothes made in the first world out of natural materials werent cheap at all.
      The thing is that most of the companies that still manufacture in the first world today charge extra either for luxury-tier materials, hand-sewing, or just for the brand name itself. Which not everyone needs. Theres not much of a market for moderately priced first-world clothing with okay-quality materials/construction. Thats the level of quality that many mall-type stores produced back in the day. Now there’s either made in Asia garbage or luxury goods.
      You can find exceptions of course.

      Thrifts (goodwill), ebay, and mercari are my main go to now< Thrift stores are nice but they have the same RL, polo, jcrew clothes for $30-50 when i sometimes can find custom tailored, or heritage brands at goodwil for $12, you just have to be patient and knowledgable. I’m tired of paying $300 for a wool sweater from china and would rather just keep my wardobe small.

      Cant you at least wear different button-up shirts than flannels? I dont get why so many guys act like theyre the only shirt on earth. If you absolutely need the warmth, you can try corduroy shirts or even just solid color flannel.

      • Anonymous says:

        Yes, I can and do. I wear mostly flannels and jeans. Sometimes oxfords and chinos if I want or need to dress up a littte. I also have denim shirts (I do double denim sometimes, bite me) and got a couple of casual button shirts/overshirts, some plain, some with patterns.
        Sometimes I layer wool sweaters or cardigans (not over flannels, of course).
        But boots, jeans and flannel are my default fit, to the point that my friends consider it a kind of trademark. I’d say I wear that about 80% of the time during winter.

          I miss the Midwest and autumn/winter clothes. It was so much easier to conceal carry a compact or even full-size handgun if I wanted too. Now that I’m back in South Florida, even sub-compacts are hard to conceal well in this godforsaken climate.

      this hasnt been trendy for almost a decade now anon, same with skinny jeans in general.

      Hating skinny jeans is such an NPC zoomer thing, especially because skinny and slim pants haven’t been ‘trendy’ for like a decade at this point.

      I hate how many nerds there are in this board. I feel like shooting up a gay pride parade whenever I see a "most /fashion/ video game characters" thread.

      Discussion in here is impossible because we have way too many gays and unironic chuds. There is always one moron spamming "tranny" in threads and there is a 70% chance that an actual tranny is in the thread too. This board went to shit after 2015. At least the WAYWT has been better than it was earlier this year.

      I miss the old inspo threads.

      Gucci and LV are for the asians now. Which is a shame because I have a couple of Gucci bags and one LV bag. Not sure about Hermes.

      Move beyond Guicci, LV, and other high street brands. Hermes is fine but incredibly overpriced. Spend the time to learn specific, less well known tailoring houses from England, France and Italy. Avoid anything owned by LVMH (Loro Piana being the only exception). Come home, brother

    the current baggy/loose fit zeitgeist of fashion looks like dogshit and makes anyone who isn’t a lardo look like an emaciated stick figure.

      Disagree, it’s a pretty good cope for skinny but tall kids. It gives them a wide, more masculine silhouette.
      Short guys tend to look dumb and/or fat in baggy clothes imo

    i wants all gays to stay in their lane. please stop visiting other boards and trying to gay everything up. wish there was a universal rule for all jannies that made it requirement to ban gay posting on non-gay boards, or a function that would ban a gay poster from visiting all boards except the gay ones. if you are gay and reading this, just stop.

    I‘d love to make a pork pie “my thing“, but am too young and not really masculine enough to pull it off. I feel like I stand out too much in my generation wearing any sort of proper hat when other people my age and even up to their forties now wear sneakers and sweatpants.

      yeah, i’m 23 and trying to get into hats that is not baseball cap, not that there’s anything wrong with it. I got a used akubra for a decent price and just wear it whenever it’s sunny out, ex gardening, on the bus, groceries shoping. I would say just do it, ppl won’t even notice, those taht are into hats will compliment yours so it’s win-win.

        If you have a hard time getting into hats, you need to size up. A hat should be snug but easy to put on. Just so tight that the wind won’t blow it off.

      I feel your pain. I bought a fedora from a mail order form included in the cassette liner of the Indiana Jones 3 soundtrack in 1989. I wore it as a freshman in high school and it just didn’t work. Keep in mind that this predates the Internet so it wasn’t really the meme that it is today, bit it might as well have been.
      Now I wear hats at work every day, but it’s practical. Boonie style in the summer, ushenka in the winter, and leather outback style in the spring and fall. I could get away with ball and knit caps, but because it’s practical I get away with going a bit fancier.
      Honestly, I could have pulled off the fedora in 1989, but I was too much of a sperg and didn’t wear anything that made sense to go with it.

    I get compliments on my clothes often but when I start to go into detail about them the person immediately tunes me out and changes the subject.
    Do plebs not like learning about things they initially see as interesting?
    Are they just being nice to me?
    Just goes to show no one really cares what you are wearing, even if they say they like it.
    Yes I am a fabric autist. I have never met anyone with a fraction of the interest I have.

      For the most part they do not, other than knowing the key words they need to look for.
      >Are they just being nice to me?
      They’re being nice to you but genuinely honest. Just take the compliment and move on.
      >Just goes to show no one really cares what you are wearing, even if they say they like it.
      They do not care several orders of magnitude beyond what you do, or anyone else on this board does. At best they’ll label you as the guy who dresses nicely.
      >Yes I am a fabric autist. I have never met anyone with a fraction of the interest I have.
      Perhaps in this same board, but not everyone, only a handful of us really care about fabrics. I ain’t myself an expert by any means.

      What are some good resources for learning about menswear fabrics please? I’d like to know more, but I’m not really sure how to go about it.

    • Anonymous says:

      Yeah, I’ve noticed this. No one ever wants a lecture. Doesn’t have to be about fashion. No matter how sincere or interested people are, they never want to know what it is, how it works, where you got it, what it’s called. I’ve learned never to volunteer information not directly asked for. I think I’d be an exception and would love to hear your autistic rambling about fabric, but I’d probably be too self absorbed to compliment you in the first place.

      sometimes people compliment people to fish for compliments back

      And this. Insecurity is far more likely the motivation than inquisitiveness.

    You guys hecked me up. I’ve spent so much time on this board lately that I’ve started to question which core I’m supposed to be.
    I feel like I’m mixing up gorpcore, seinfeldcore, trady ivy prep and dark academia, while also comfymaxxing, qualitymaxxing, naturalmaterialsmaxxing, environmentalimpactminning and thriftmaxxing. I don’t like logos on my clothes but lately you’ve been telling me that’s somehow a zoomer trend wtf. I like some traditional items (like corduroy and thick wool sweaters) but not all of them (like boat shoes). I also wear contemporary Asics sneakers and I don’t want to live without a Gore-Tex TM winter coat because I live in a rainy area.
    Sometimes you guys make me feel like I should pick one style and be consistent with it. Other times I think heck you I’ll do what I want.
