The Style Thread

Recommended Posts

I used a messenger bag in my freshman year of high school. With all the textbooks I carried, I'm pretty sure it made my hip quite tender to the point at which it bugs me even today.

 

I want an old school two-pocket Jansport backpack. Those things were the [cabbage]. Now, all the backpacks have like, 20 pockets and all this weird netting.

 

I'm in love with this backpack: http://shop.herschelsupply.com/shop/pop-quiz-233.html

 

Hershel's a good brand too, my brother has one of their bags and if I was sill had use for a more tradition backpack I'd highly consider one of packs. The only downside to their recent popularity is the price of their products has increased some.

OT: Go for that bag. It looks pimp'n. I really enjoy carrying a messenger bag as long as I don't put too much stuff in it.

For that price, it's worth trying anyway. And if it's really good everyone ITT can get one.

The soles are too thick to be honest. Crepe soles are nicer, and in hindsight, I probably should of got dbs with a crepe sole.

 

Quilted varsity jackets. Yay or nay?

Clothes are not a commodity, especially not shoes. Maybe they won't seem so expensive after a few years of wearing them. What don't you like about them?

The sole's thick, but I don't want to be walking around snow with desert boots again. It'll wear down, too.

Also, I wouldn't say no to a quilted varsity jacket, but I probably wouldn't say yes to an ASOS one.

No, not right now. It's just not the case. The philosophy that is driving the biggest menswear forums and blogs right now is anti-consumerist:

I tell people that if they buy a good pair of shoes a year' date=' they'll have an enviable shoe wardrobe for the rest of their life. Similarly, start with two or three suits, a blazer and a sport coat, and add one suit and one sport coat a year and you'll have a beautiful wardrobe in no time. That's not how people's consumption tends to go, though. If they're rich, they want to buy a whole wardrobe now, and replace it in two years. If they're not, they think the situation is hopeless.

[/quote']

And to boot, many of these blogs use the expression "style blog" as opposed to "fashion blog" for a reason. It's about dressing well, not dressing for now.

Also worth reading on the subject:

And one last one, from which I derived that line about commodities:

There is one thing that can happen, and which might seem like a waste of money. This is called being dressed by the internet. Not long ago, many bloggers were pushing (and are still pushing) a workwear aesthetic. They pushed it so much, in fact, that people got sick of it, so the ones who were decked out in 200$ chambray shirts didn't know what to do with them. Now everyone loves anglo-italian style, and I imagine those who can afford to get into it but are just beginning to get into menswear (I fit only in the latter, and that seems to be for the best) will probably also get sick of them, whereas those blogging about it will probably keep wearing their pants the same way.

Went clothes shopping today, got tons of [cabbage] in preparation for leaving. A couple of dress shirts and casual shirts, a blazer, a leather belt, 3 pairs of slim-fit chinos, desert boots and dress shoes. I'm pretty happy with it all.icon_thumbsu.gif

Bought my first pair of jeans in like 5 years. All the jeans I've previously worn were whatever Pacsun had for sale so it's been really [cabbage]ty quality. Welp I ended up buying some Levi's 514's and hot damn, I had no idea denim could be so comfortable :D

 

Also managed to get some of the most comfortable t-shirts I've ever worn from J. Crew for like $9 apiece. Student discounts compounded with shopping at outlets ftw!

Nice. You should learn to tie your laces right though. Were they blue in the beginning?

Yeah. To be honest, I don't really mind how my converses are tied, but no matter what, there is always too much left over lace.

Hold up. My friend showed me a website to buy skate shoes for really cheap, so assuming the shipping charges aren't ridiculous, you might save a lot of dough (I bought mine for around 60$ and could have had them for 20-30$). I'll ask him for a link.
