Out of date fashion standards by Shitting Buzzridge - Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:54:29 EST ID:8eD3YnGK No.60357 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Who follows this? Does anybody feel like this guide is made for people from 1912?
For me it's like..
White-tie to black tie optional => Wedding or funeral, maybe
Semi-formal and biz caz => Job interview
Casual => Uptight dicks with no fashion sense at work
Ultra casual => 90% of the world
Sloppy => Grunge rock musician

Anybody else feel like the stuffy, uptight workplace makes the world a lot less pleasant to look at fashion wise?

you should decide who you're trying to impress before you try to impress them. Once you understand who or what you're buying / dressing for, you can easily determine what looks good or bad.

Protip, its usually dressing for sexy women or guys with more power than you.

Like, yeah to me "beats" are just about the most twatty thing you can wear around your neck, but every pair I've listened to haven't sounded "bad". Just not NEARLY as good as any proper headphones you could get in that price range. They also have pretty retarded EQ curves on them (pic related) but honestly it's not as if the gimps who wear them use them for monitoring or listening to anything other than bass heavy pop music.

>the only way to get people thinking about these things is to educate them about those respective cultures
So, what you're saying, is that unless I know enough about a culture, it's bad if I do something that they've already done? Alright. I don't see the reasoning behind this, but. Carry on with that logic.

>If you had instead posted a series of photos portraying Bantu Curls in tradtional use, then posted this photo and pointed out the crass vanity of "fashionable references to ethnicity" people might be more receptive.
Why did you put "fashionable references to ethnicity" in quotations? Who are you quoting? You made literally no point here aside from "wow that's so vain, you should tell people about this"

>Hairstyles worn by vapid individuals have comparitively little impact on the wellbeing of the poorest people of this planet
I don't think people are obligated to donate their labor or money to a certain cultural group just because they were inspired by a hairstyle.

>considering "Coalition Forces" are currently bombing civilian structures in Syria and saying oops afterwards.
This has nothing to do with fashion

>also it's just not a very good hairstyle.

...What would you guys recommend for a 20ish year old skinny white guy with glasses and dark brown, curly hair? I like my curls so i feel it would be a shame to cut my hair so short they disappear but otherwise im open for anything.

I also have a beard and moustache left over from the summer, i've been trimming it a bit around the edges but otherwise im not sure what to do with it. Cant upload a picture from the device im currently using so if anyone can suggest anything cool with merely the mental image i'll be really grateful. As i said, last time i tried this method i got loads of compliments on the result so i trust you guys

>>59295 Always trim your facial hair, don't let it get crazy, ITS YOUR FUCKING FACE. Keep it nice and maintained or shave daily.
As for your hair homie, you got curly ass hair on a skinny frame, dont go long unless youre looking for that tween look. I woudl definitely cut it, get your sides shaved down to like a 2 or 3. Then got your top chopped, Id recommend leaving a little bit on top. Curly hair is cool, and its yours so you might as well rock some of it. Having the clean sides and the curly top will give you a look where you can be clean and fun at the same time.

Just chopped off my long hair and got a cut for the first time in a while.

Hello, I am not much a fashion person, but I need some help. I've been through a lot recently so all my clothes are ripped or stained, my socks have holes in them, my jeans are worn out under the crotch. Where do you buy new clothes?

I normally wear a nice dress shirt (usually blue), black jeans, a thick belt, and black boots with black socks. I keep my money and key in my left pocket and my cellphone in my right pocket. I sometimes keep a pen and paper in my breast pocket.

I'd like to get gusseted jeans because I heard they wear out less often, and get dress shirts that have a single breast pocket with a button. I like to have, like utility, because I do a shit ton of walking.

Thank you for any advice yo

My first post in nearly 5 years.

First things first, get rid of your old clothes, either through donation, trade, or trash get rid of it, never have socks with holes if you can manage it.

Secondly, youre going to have to figure out your lifestyle, knowing what you do and what you like is key to having a wardrobe as well as aiding you in not buying shit you won't ever wear.
It seems you know what you like, nice.
I'll help you figure out a small basic wardrobe AND ill give you a few stores/sites to browse.

Tops: Seems like youre into button ups and dressing simple, but havent switched over to the modern lifestyle. Look at Macys, Kohls, even Target for some simple button ups, linen is nice and breathable for these hot summers. Grab a white, black, and one of your favorite color or one that will match your outfit, usually a blue or a dark green. Youll also want to grab some PLAIN t-shirts for your wardrobe. Old Navy is a great place for basic clothing as long as it isn't branded with OLD NAVy across the whole fucking thing. Follow those same rules if you are on a budget. A few neutral colored clothes to help get your wardrobe started.

Bottoms: Denim, youre going to want to spend some good money here. Ive owned 4-5 pairs of denim the last 4 years, a pair of Raws and another pair just for the change. I own a pair of G-Stars, but I've also owned Hudson, Superdry, Levis, and Nudies. The Hudsons are the comfiest and softest of all denim but also ripped first. Raw or unselvaged denim is the best way to go if youre looking for longetivity and strength. You wash the pair only once every few months as well.

Shoes: Go simple, basic canvas tops are an easy go. Look for some Converse, Keds, or even Vans to get you into some cheap simple shoes that go with any outfit. Or if youre not into that boots like Red Wings or Wolverine 1000mile are good for walking in while still being able to hold up as well as any other boot.

For starters, I'm petrified of needles being used on me. I'm a lab technician, so I use them all day and I'm fascinated, but have always avoided shots, etc whenever I could. 4-5 years ago I was dating a gent whose mom got diagnosed with Leukemia. It was summer vacation from university and he was alone in taking care of her and it was draining him emotionally. He asked if I'd spend part of a summer there as HIS support. I willingly went.

This wonderful woman, a Chilean aristocrats daughter, had a wonderful outlook on things, despite her predicament. She decided to spend what time she had left doing anything she could, including facing all her fears (bungee jumping, eating snails, and even petting deer at a zoo. She had an irrational fear of deer). I spent half my summer being inspired.
When I returned to school in the fall, I set out to conquer some of mine. Like swimming in a lake (terrified of deep water) and getting a tattoo. I picked something simple, a pawprint, since I was a shelter volunteer and regularly fostered dogs. I got through it fine obviously, it was painless, just irrational fear.

Years later I've decided its time to face it again, as it doesn't just go away. I'm getting it re-inked, however I want some sort of script around it kind of in a short hand way explaining why its there. I've thought over a few possibilites but none sound right. Marcella (the woman that inspired this) had a motto, "Face one of your fears a day, you'll live a longer life". I love it but it almost seems too long.

Any suggestions?
(Oh, yes, and she's just fine, btw. She went into remission.)

I figure this is probably a pretty common topic, but I don't come here often and don't feel like looking back. I guess link me to a recent thread if there is one.

Anyways, at some point in the future I plan to invest into some quality work boots. I work in a machine shop (manual and CNC lathes) and am on my feet all day but don't walk around all that much. Steel toes not required and I don't really want them.

Could you give me the rundown of all the usual top names in this area? Or just brands you like as well. Aesthetics aren't top priority (but always appreciated), but at the very least none of those dorky looking type of boots (http://www.walmart.com/ip/OZARK-TRAIL-MENS-MID-PROFILE-HIKING-SHOE/36070252). Decent ones tend to never look like that from what I've seen, fortunately.

Price isn't necessarily an issue because I'm brainstorming right now and am going to be considering them as an investment into my work, anyways.

---

Also, I have been eyeing some pairs of merino wool socks because apparently they're badass. Particularly these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product//B004M5UG4O/ (probably chocolate color--pick related--but was also looking at the brown). Quite pricey for one pair, but at least they have a life-time guarantee lol. Anyone have experience with this type of sock? Keeping in mind it is not just wool, but merino wool, which I guess is magical.
