My opinion never included phrases like obsessed or dedicated their lives to, nor did I fly off the handle as far as I'm aware
Hah, living outside. Like in a park?
The world is a salad bowl not a melting pot. I can't remember seeing anyone with a reference shirt in the past few months (I'm giving the benefit of the doubt in that I might have seen someone with one ages ago and forgotten about it, but it's unlikely)
Also D3 and Chesty have both agreed with me without prompt that you don't see it in their neck of the woods, and I would personally assume that it's the same anywhere even vaguely cosmopolitan. That's why I asked where you're living, because it's a given that styles and standards will be different depending on where you are, and I think you're giving far too much weight to what goes on in your neighbourhood. It's not the whole wide world. And I'm not talking about burning people at the stake here, this is the fashion thread. No handle-flying or persecution or "critically judging", just giving my two cents on a category of shirts and the first impression I get from them.
I don't think your clothes and what you watch on TV in the evenings should cross over. I don't think it's an extreme view.
Also I don't mind band tees myself, so long as they aren't ugly. The music that someone listens to, that interests me and says a lot more about that person. It's such a preferential thing that it doesn't come across as being a billboard to me. Maybe that's a double standard too, but I feel it's justified since music is a different ball park. Plus what I originally addressed was referential clothing.
Maybe a better way to put it would be: If I see someone in say an RHCP shirt or something, yeah, they listen to RHCP, for me that's a legitimate way to represent yourself at a glance. If the impact of the shirt is "I enjoy watching Dexter on the television", that comes across as a lot less.. Well, a lot more mundane I guess. Like "I like collecting stamps" or "I like eating chops and sauce". What does that give people, really? Unless you're somewhat passionate about something, I don't see why you would go out with it as your signature that people get at first glance.
Hence the logic of "Oh look, they're wearing a Breaking Bad hoody. They must REALLY like that show. Or maybe they just can't dress for shit."
And I agree with you @ game shirts, I do think it's weird. Just the same as I think movie and TV shirts are weird. It makes sense to me. I don't know why you're defending one with your life and shunning the other, it's hypocritical. By your logic you shouldn't bat an eyelid at someone wearing a game shirt either. I know I defended music themed shirts, but at least I tried to explain why I think that's different
Gee I wrote a lot
What the hell are they doing lol?
I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow, I'm probably going to get the same style as last time.
However, could you guys suggest alternative styles that would suit me?
So this is my look at the moment, but the hairs a tad longer making styling difficult:
This is it freshly cut, probably going to get the same:
i gone and bought that jacket
i'm not a fan of hoods on leather jackets but apart from that it's looking nice, rusty
That awesome moment when you fit into an old pair of jeans.
wow what the fuck
that jacket is great
where did you buy it and how much
I'm currently losing some weight, these pants I bought off the internet are a motivation for me to do so, since they are actually smaller than it said there.
Pretty cool pants, too, it's sad that they don't fit me
I had to buy like 5 pairs of new pants over christmas. I don't think my waist size is going to drop much more though so i should be good.
I don't want tree trunks.
Eh, I like having nice skinny legs.
i bought this jacket i like it do you like it because i sure do
Sunny San Diego
he looks absolutely NOTHING like niko, wtf
Not a single similarity
Ok FULS, here's my story and dilemma.
I'm 17 and for all my years of schooling, there has always been some kind of dress code in place. As a result, I feel comfortable in more formal clothing (Personally, I think I look better in a suit coat and tie than a pair of jeans) and less comfortable in what we would consider casual clothing. And I think this is reflected in the above image.
Now, let's straighten a few things out first. I don't really like how I look in the above image, so I'm not really going to defend it all that much. I don't think I look absolutely awful, but I notice there are several areas that could use improving.
1. I need a haircut. I know this. I've known it since the beginning of the week, but I'm pretty awful about scheduling these kinds of things. It's mostly that kind of issue, not some misguided belief that this looks good.
2. The shirt is too big. It makes me look larger than I really am. All I need is a tighter fit and the next time I go shopping for clothes (soon in an ideal world, although exams could say differently) this will definitely be a priority.
Now here are some things I don't know much about and would like your help with.
1. Color/pattern. I get the feeling from some blunt and moderately fashionable friends of mine that this shirt is not a good look for me. My problem is, I don't know why and I have trouble picking things out that look good color-wise. I'm pretty good when it comes to size (although this shirt is an exception), but color seems to elude me consistently.
2. Spotting good vs. bad. This is sort of repeating the last section, but when I'm looking online at clothes, I have trouble telling what would look good on me. I can post more photos if necessary, but if you guys could recommend some changes/specific articles and styles of clothing, that would be VERY helpful.
I'll most likely reply with questions and the like, but thanks in advance for whatever you send my way.
I was thinking of wearing some grey cargo pants with a t-shirt. Pants sort of like these:
in general imo
cargos are like taking some normal pants fucking up the fit and putting ugly pockets everywhere
Here is a current picture of me:
I do notice I wear band shirts quite a lot, should I stray away from wearing a lot of logo T-shirts?
