I've got this weird aesthetic I want to subscribe to.
I like to wear three piece suits with combat boots. I do it in my leisure, so it's not as inappropriate. I'd like to go around like this, but I don't know how to create a look based of this.

Spike's the only frame of reference I have. At least Spike with Doc Marten's.

I think you should just go for the mod look if you're gonna go for this. Just toned down on the psychedelic patterns. You could always even that out with a punky haircut or something, if you like.

At the end of the day, wear whatever the fuck you feel comfortable in.

Can we see pictures? You don't need to post your head if you don't want. I see a lot of men in Seattle with this style. It doesn't work for everyone. Some people pull it off naturally, and some people look like attention whores. They stand out so shiny and so perfect that I just don't buy into whatever statement they are trying to make about themselves. Elegant, refined, yet casual about it? It don't always work out that way.

I don't have any recent pictures of me, this is a new style I'm going to test the waters with. I like the mod style of dress, but I want to use it to create a more refined punk/goth style. If I don't sound like a complete douche.

Good, go for it.

>If I don't sound like a complete douche.

When a person is put down too often, or they start to fear being put down, they do it to themselves in their own mind. I used to do it. I see it now like it is a way of defending yourself, of beating someone to the punch before they can hurt you. Don't whip yourself for trying to express who you are.

It doesn't matter how you are expressing your true self, as long as you are. A personal sense of fashion is something that develops over time. Everyone began by wearing shit their parents bought them, or their friends wore - everyone began as a cliche. The people who rise out of it are the ones who took risks and followed their dreams.

Fashion is like food, who the fuck cares what's on somebody elses plate. Eat that shit up.

This is my current style concept, I think it's similar in spirit to what your talking about OP. However I incorporate a lot of cross dressing into it, but I basically throw on a colorful button up, then a sports coat/cardigan or really flamboyant coat if the mood strikes, then some torn jeans or exposed long johns or tattered tights, just really garbage bottoms and some boots or chucks. Interestingly I also started based on Spike but began to incorporate more anime and Japanese fashion, particularly stuff I see in the Japanese noise punk crowd. I'm thinking for you a good idea would be mismatched suit pieces and get tacky ones in the mix, ie checkers, bright colors, reflective materials. That'd give your look a lot of variety and control if you wanna keep the gentleman thing but still have a punky vibe, and when you wanna fly a little more under the radar all you have to do is pull the loud colors/patterns out and you'll not only stay consistent, but also folks in your scene will still get a punky vibe from an otherwise normal 3piece suit because it now carries the context of your other more flamboyant incarnations of the style. I think Ina give this idea a test run actually, hope you like my idea.

First of all I am ugly Sherlock, not gay but am cross dresser. Unlike most users here I dont dress to look good, I dress to have fun and try new things. Punk has never been about sucking your own narcissistic dick.

Youre fine, dude.

A lot of guys have some repression going on, so they're going to lash out of anything unusual.

But I think your style is great, a step away from something like seapunk.

Keep doing what youre doing, don't let the mannequins bring you down.

Or it could be that his outfit is actually complete mismatched shit. I'm all for people wearing weird shit as long as there's some sort of logic or an eye for aesthetics behind it.

Gentleman Punk - I like the idea but your application needs work. It's too obvious, lacks depth and I'm really hoping you haven't got either a nerd haircut or some greased up anime kid look going on.

To me, it's an attitude rather than a style - move away from predictable pieces, your interpretation is too literal. Like what, gentleman = suit, punk = combat boots. 0/10 for effort.

You could pull off a very personal style, but you gotta do your homework. Shape a style, mould the image etc - especially if you are trying to live out the dream of what you want to look like.

IMO - first up, budget. Honestly, judging by your influences and comments here, I think it's important you don't end up looking like another nerd at university who doesn't know how to dress. Make sure you have the $$$ to buy a whole, coherent wardrobe. It's not hard if you just buy the right basics and spend larger on maybe 1 or 2 things. If you don't, the transition can be awkward and half complete - meaning you don't pull off jack shit and STILL look like another nerd at university who doesn't know how to dress.



Boots - go for it, get some, I think it's a cool idea, Doc Marten are pretty classic but Timberlands are dope too and also less likely to bring up the whole "mod" association, which to me isn't something you want.

Trousers - get something smart and maybe even current, not "gentleman" fedora bullshit, there is a lot to consider. Some brands do incredibly nice combat trousers that still look like you could wear them with a suit, it depends on budget. Assuming it needs to be cheap, go for dickies workwear trousers, it's classic, has a lot of good brand association and also comes in a range of cuts. It's a little bit classic America so in some ways to me, it has the gentlemanly look without being a suit.

Upper body - Get yourself a bunch of uni qlo shirts for cheap, they come in a range of cuts and materials and as long as you keep it minimal, you will get the desired "gentleman" look. Combo with crewneck / v-neck jumpers for a smart look.

Jackets - Blazers are an option but only if they fit you PROPERLY. I think in the jacket department there is a few options - either a nice waxed parka, M65 or a collared coach jacket would work well - these are all "classic" items and have associations with style too.

Haircut - less is more. The less of an impact and statement you try to make with your hair, the more likely it is to go down well. Don't go crazy trying to pull off slicked back cuts or a ponytail etc. Just keep it subtle, push your hair to one side or something and always keep it hovering around the medium length area. Lean towards cuts if you do have a preference, but if you are just starting out go for something that's smart.

Honestly mate if you walk into a room wearing combats and a suit, people will just think you are weird. Be creative, stay true but most importantly respect aesthetic - don't wear ugly shit man.

For what it's worth I've always styled myself as an urban gentleman. But it was more to do with the appearance / attitude split I have going on - I've always looked kinda hood with baggy clothes, hats, bulky jackets etc so I try to behave better, people expect you to act a certain way if you have a certain look. Try not to indulge stereotypes, you do you bruh I got you.

I cant help but hate and like your style at the same time. Either way I respect your decision to do it. It reallys annoys me when people hate on other people because they dress a certain way. Person A has X haircut with Z clothes... So fucking what? Some people throw the biggest judgemental shitstorm over fucking clothes.

That said though, OP, I dont get how people "choose" to subscribe to a style, then go out and buy all the "necessary" kit. Isnt your style just what comes to you naturally? Idk Id just find it weird if one day I woke up and was like "Hmmm, I feel like dressing like a skater at the moment. Im going to get some ear plugs, DCs, baggy cargos and a few non descript plain t shirts"
Emma Crobblewater - Fri, 11 Dec 2015 20:56:56 EST 5ZYniE18 No.60609 Reply

Thing about having X hair and Z clothes is that people can't read it. I wouldn't say they throw big fits about it, but judgement is something we all do and tbh, part of the reason that people end up having X hair and Z clothes is for that reaction on some level. Right?

As for subscribing to a style etc - it just depends on your relationship with clothing in the first place. Some people get their kick out of having the latest, others get their kick out of luxury brands or having the must functional wardrobe etc. What motivates people to buy clothing in the first place is a pretty deep question - with no one single reason.

I think to try ever tell someone that a brand is off limit with 3 years of skating experience etc is just ppl being territorial. It sucks to see your favourite things getting worn by people less legit than you but it shows you the reality of brand identity - it's just who's wearing it and who you think is wearing it.

For me personally, I like to think that my appearance and personality are the X and Z. I look kinda hostile with baggy clothes, always been into urban/hip hop/skate style but when I talk it's clear I'm educated. It throws people off a bit once they get past the fact I dress differently.

It's completely gauche to dress "punk" past age 30, so you can't wear any band shirts/logos of any kind, as you shouldn't be advertising anything since nobody cares what you think or like. There is nothing more ridiculous than some old skater or street punk guy trying to relive his youth wearing a jacket covered in band patches and pretending to be 16yrs old again.

British skinhead (not white trash "murican skin wearing urban camo and wifebeater), Mod, Suede Head, these are all acceptable. So is rocking a harrington jacket with a sweater like Steve McQueen.
