    eh, it could be much worse to be honest. especially the 2 on the right, they look quite normal. i wouldn’t even turn my head if I saw them on the street. that’s assuming you actually live in a big city and not a backwater village

      This. The story of /fashion/ is mostly the story of ugly or otherwise physically disadvantaged guys trying to wear shit that only good-looking guys can get away with wearing — and having too much autism to understand the flaw.

    This is a hobby board but it turned into "what 2 wear 2 get laid". You could say the same for people with other hobbies, such as keyboards: why the heck are you spending thousands on a keyboard, or fragrance. I understand both of those but the average person would be like, wtf.

          cope, you’re not a canvas, anon. you’re a pile of flesh and bones that’s not getting any fresher. you can try to mask the stench by putting on smelly water and try to cover up the decay with fabric but you can’t escape the inevitable.

            people dress up to get laid first and foremost
            if you have no prospects of getting laid, dressing up seems redundant

            This anon is based. Everything human beings do is in service of reproduction. It’s what everything boils down to. Men try to get better jobs and better cars, telling themselves they just like nice things, but ultimately you are just serving your base instincts while your frontal lobe comes up with reasons why it’s doing it. You chase money and power to attract a high value mate and reproduce. That’s it. Everything you do is in service of that, or, if not, it is in service of short dopamine releases that help abate your deep feelings of worthlessness.

            Why do boring coomer NPCs assume that everybody else is as soulless as they are? This obviously isn’t true, humans clearly have desires other than sex and frequently those desires are stronger than reproductive urges. For example, Nuns and Monks both feel such strong spiritual desire that they renounce sexual relationships in order to pursue a more devout religious lifestyle.
            Obviously nobody here cares about fashion so much that they place it above romantic/sexual relationships, but it’s totally possible to find something interesting in its own merit without subconsciously seeing it as a pathway to sex.

            heck off, not everyone else has the same insecure sociopathic mindset as you. You sound like every maladjusted comp sci major that picked their profession purely on starting salary.
            And when you’re working your insecure job for 5 years while everyone else has moved up, and you spent extra for that Tesla, and nice watch, you’re going to just become another Elliot when you realize women are still repulsed by you. Because you can’t buy your way out of a shitty personality

            What does this mean? I basically agree with your comment, just not sure what this is saying. If he started out as a junior SWE making 200k (big tech), in 5 years he’d be promoted at least once and probably be up to 300k or more, depending on his company’s promotion timeline and how much he job hops.

            buying a nice car to get women is the most misguided thing one could possibly ever do.
            try this out sometime:
            start pointing out random cars around a femoid and ask her how much she thinks they cost.
            if all you care about is perception: women have ZERO idea how much the value of used luxury cars falls off a cliff. buy a used bmw lexus or mercedes or something. your average dumb b***h thinks a e46 beater is worth 60 grand. they are that stupid. you can make them think you’re gainfully employed for less than 3000 dollars.

            Your point isn’t wrong but owning a ‘cool’ car will get you laid. It’s probably the only fashion accessory worth spending on.

            Not only are you not fashionable, but you’re a dyel too? A canvas does come with a fixed frame, but you can’t act like you’re not supposed to change what’s on it. The body is malleable through fitness, surgery, and it’s silhouette can be drastically altered by garments. We are the only animals on this planet that utilize any of these three because it is in our nature to pursue beauty, and we find beauty ultimately in artistry. We created clothes, clothes are inherently artistic.

            And yes, we are dying every second. Art such as paintings and statues do too, it decays over time – but yet billions of dollars go into restoring them. No artist has ever succeeded by stopping themself because their work won’t stand the test of time metaphorically or literally. There is no reason to not look the best you can because you should find ways to appreciate the body that your parents have given you. Biologically speaking, your father did not work to pass his genes for you to potentially show it off to the world as subpar – either due to no fitness acumen, personal hygiene, or fashion sense. "It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable"

          It still is. I know dressing in a neofolk-ish way will not get me laid. Embracing the lifestyle has actually turned some people away from me (they were both people at uni and this was over fishing and hunting animals, and pests).

          Not him but most people do, yes. Even powershitters start with the ambition to get laid but then settle for being the fat dude that can deadlift more than the average person

        ever heard of doing stuff for fun?

          >doing stuff for fun
          Social events where you might meet a mate? But yes, you were "just having fun." The best part of everyone seething about this is that that too is part of what the frontal lobe does when you call out the lizard brain. "No bro! I am in control! I totally just do things for fun!"

        Dressing up is one of the worst things you can do if you want to get laid. Women are the opposite of men, when us guys meet a new girl we start looking for things we find attractive about them, but when women meet a new man they’re always looking for reasons NOT to have sex with them, and the more "personality" your clothing has the more likely they are to find something that turns them off. Hang out with guys who actually pull and you’ll see that the majority wear the most basic, normal, nondescript stuff possible. Even my own ex told me that she wasn’t attracted to me the first time we met, when I was dressed up, and only got interested the second time when I was in more basic clothes.

          the difference in mires and how I great treated when I have a navy blazer and some trousers vs when Im in jeans and shit is absurd
          this is pure cope, maybe you look like shit

            Oh yeah that kind of "dressing up" is fine and I get the same reactions (especially wearing actual suits), but that’s pretty standard normie stuff to wear. I was talking about tryhard /fashion/ shit.

    For many who are "into" fashion, it’s just a soulless means of flexing wealth. It doesn’t matter if it actually looks good or not, the idea is just to be as loud as possible so more people see how much they spent.

    What would fashion be if not something unique, or at least different? I mean, if everyone were "fashionable" it would be the same as if no one were. Change is the only thing we can perceive. If everyone dressed the same, the concept of fashion" wouldn’t exist, ipso facto people who are into fashion dress differently than the average person.

    Like asking why some people who are really into niche music prefer stuff that sounds like unlistenable noise to normies. They went down a rabbit hole and are now only relatable to people within their clique.

    They dress well. anyone think they dress well. let’s be real. even normies would say that they got a good fit.

    my problem with fashion is that, the more I consume these media about fashion. the more I find fashion as a whole to be "empty" I feel like I’m chasing something but that doesn’t seem to actually exist. I browsed this board with the sole reason of wanting to look good but I still haven’t even reach the level of good basic outfit yet because I’m broke as shit and my wardrobe suck.

    I feel like what matter to most about fashion is, it HAS to actually represent the person and not a lot of people actually have that.
    think of Travis Bickle and his iconic military jacket. there is just something about that, the clothes that actually represet the wearer. think of Goth subculture and I mean actual Goth girls.
    Think of Skinhead. Think of Hippies from the 70s. You see it right?

    people who enjoy fashion as a hobby tend to like interesting clothes and combine them into new outfits, the whole point of fashion as a hobby is to try new things.

    also "normal" people have no real perception of what makes these clothes "fashion clothes", you have to atleast have a superficial interest in fashion to even form an opinion on someone elses outfit.

    once you graduate from /r/mfa SEXCORE fashion you either get into refinement or experimentation. They’re probably caring more about opinions from other experimental weirdos than a normie who’s deciding between the black nikes or white nikes.

    >5k
    well weirdo clothes are pricy ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    The only thing that makes these guys look bad is that they’re together. Any fit taken alone would look good. But together it just clashes. They’re clearly different styles

    If you go out, go out with friends that you match with. You should be able to blend in with anyone, or stand out in a way that counts. If you go out with people who have loud styles, then don’t wear a loud fit that might clash with theirs.
