The Fashion: Clothing Your Shame (no Fireguys allowed)

How do you dress? What're you about to buy? What do you think about Incenjucar? All reasonable questions, all of which we're here to talk about--at least, if the last fashion thread is any indication.

General courtesy dictates that you use copious pictures, but spoiler them to keep your posts from being OMG HUGE!

And now, I give you a hipster:

    In Injec really thast terrible a dresser he must be bannd from these threads?

    He once told us that his fashion sense was derived from role-playing characters he made.

    So that should probably answer your question.

    What the fuck is that guy in the OP wearing? He looks like he's dressed for Depression-era America. I live in a pretty unhip place, so I get by with straight-leg jeans, boots or black skate shoes, and a dark colored t-shirt. If I'm feeling fancy I will wear a polo or a longsleeved button-down.

    Man, he fails at roleplaying then if all of his characters just had ratty long hair and wore ill-fitting shades of black.

    EDIT: For some reason, the guy in the OP pushes my "I sort of need to punch you in the nose" button.

    In the summer, I wear pretty much exclusively khaki shorts and either tees,or short-sleeve button-ups. I about half my shopping at Gap, so imagine a Gap mannequin. That's me. In the winter I wear either jeans or cords and long sleeve tees, or short tees under long-sleeve button ups. I like flannel. Flannel is cozy. I also don the occasional thin sweater.

    If I ever get a job again, it'll probably be one that requires me to dress business-casual, as opposed to the just-hopped-out-of-bed-casual required by my last job. I sort of look forward to it, because I like having an excuse to dress nice. I'll have to buy a completely new work wardrobe, which'll be fun.

    Every few months or so, I break down and treat myself to one or two articles of clothing from Banana Republic. I say one or two articles because BR is so friggin' expensive but oh I love their clothes so very much. This is my kind of style right here:


    br513944-00p01v01.jpg


    Sometimes BR gets a little too preppy for me, so I like to mix and match with stuff from Express:

    I don't know what the fuck is up with that guitar though.

    It's such a pain in the ass for me to find jeans that fit me juuuuuuuuuust right, but just like Ege said awhile back, it's so worth it in the end.

    Man. There was some guy at frisbee wearing like dress pants that he had cut off just below the knees. I wanted to fucking punch him.

    That said, I usually wear a pair of jeans or khakis and a t-shirt. Or a button down collared shirt. I used to have two pairs of warmup pants that I would wear frequently because they were exceedingly comfortable, but someone stole them.

    So, what I'm saying is. Fuck hipsters.

    I didn't even know H&M had menswear

    I mean that is probably the problem right there

    someone probably just like went down to Salvation Army, grabbed some stuff, and threw it on the H&M racks

    and you paid for it

    I've had good experience with them-- they're cheap, and durability was not really a problem (which is a godsend, since I tend to live in my clothes). Also, they're just trendy enough that they actually have some interesting pieces that are not carbon copies of what is being bandied about in the Proper and Popular Clothing Stores (AE and its ilk).

    I'm trying to get out of a t-shirt/jeans/hide-body funk.

    Don't have much money, though, and most of my clothes end up doubling as work clothes.

    Anyway, I bought a couple of v-neck 3/4-length sleeved acrylic tops from H&M which do a brilliant job of being warm, looking smart and also being really flattering.

    Platypus - you need to find a BR outlet store. There's one semi-near me, and that's the only place I'll buy BR clothes, because otherwise it's just way too expensive. I got a really nice pale green button-up blouse with a ruched front that I love to wear for dress-up over a darker green camisole with a pair of slim-leg khakis.

    I was so confused when I was on my friend's yacht and the crewmembers were from South Af. and Australia and whatnot and someone said to me "Have you got your thongs on?" and I was like o.O;;

    Crazy lingo.

    They (well, a certain type of sandal) get called thongs here. I didn't think it was strange.

    Right now I'm at work, wearing an odd combination of clothes.

    A nice pair of light-coloured, fitted boot-cut jeans from the Gap; a gray-green t-shirt that fits really well but was actually part of my gym uniform from high school, which says "St. Pat's Patriots" on it; and a grey zippered hoodie.

    I could probably wear a barrel to work, though. It's a university job.

    When I'm not shopping at Gap, I generally go to Nordstrom Rack, because they are wonderful. It's nice grabbing a paid of $90 designer jeans for $20 because oh noes it's last year's fashion.

    Ha! As silly as it sounds, it never even occurred to me that BR has outlet stores - I live in Northern NJ, aka Magical Land of Horrendously Upscale Malls, so outlet stores aren't all that common.

    Or maybe I've been living under a rock all these years and they're all sitting right around the corner. Go figure. Thanks for the tip though, I"ll have to do some digging around. :^:

    The real key is to buy jeans when they're next year's fashion.

    I have moods that I dress in very equal parts. I never look like a scrub because raggity/shitty clothes are no good IMO, but having distinct styles is great.

    I have my
    shorts/jeans/t-shirt clothes.
    polo shirt/nice jeans/pants
    dress shirts/jackets/pants/nice jeans

    I wear them all well, and it depends upon my mood or activity for the day or evening.

    Yes, except they're jeans and the fashion doesn't change appreciably from one year to the next.

    Ah, yes.

    Fashion rules and guidelines are generally sort of silly.

    Like that "no white shoes after Labor Day" thing. Or how you apparently can't wear certain colors in certain times of year. It doesn't matter that it's 80 degrees and sunny, you can't wear a bright color because it's winter!

    I don't, like, detest them, or anything. But that sort of wear reminds me of the total dork role that populated every teen movie in the 80s - the one who was the lead actress's best friend, but secretly loved her. That's not a great archetype to emulate.

    Plus. the more-pretentious-than-thou thing isn't my bag.

    I like 'em. You can't see them that well there, but they're pretty nice, and they go with my clothes.

    I'm in the market for a new pair, though. My friend has these Pumas that I really like, black with the white stripe going up the side, but not only has Puma stopped selling them, but it would be weird to have matching shoes.

    Ahhhh.

    Any configuration of clothing can look bad if it's poorly assembled. The guy in the OP has a coherent look, even if it is visible that he is trying pretty hard to be vintage, whereas our 80s nerd looks like he tossed together a bunch of clothes that nobody else wore.

    Yesterday I was at Bob's Stores and I bought my first normal plain t-shirt in recent memory. It was dark brown ringer type, and was soft and I liked it. I should buy some grey t's then. Plain t-shirts are a new thing to me.

    And the bad thing is, this isn't just topshop- a lot of women's clothes atm seem so swamped with shitty ideas (Skintight! Metallic! Mid calf skirts! Bubble-cut under an empire waist!) that it's hard to finds the gems in amongst the throwaway, terrible trends.

    Rant over, I suppose.
