/adv/, what do you think if you see a otherwise normal-looking girl wearing long sleeves at the gym? do you assume she has a skin condition, is a cutter, just gets cold very fast? this is probably a retarded thing to worry about but yeah, social anxiety.
why are you wearing a long sleeve shirt at the gym?
I'd assume shes insecure about her body, but its not like i'd look down on her because of that since anyone who'd do so is a douchebag and doesnt deserve your attention?
right, i'm sorry, i should've started this thread with "NOTICE: I HAVE BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DIAGNOSED WITH AVPD". my bad, anon!
for the reason you're assuming, i'm insecure.
I dont really assume anythiing based on long sleeves because the gym is a gym, not a fucking fashion show / cat walk.
Hell ive seen people wear jeans whilst on a treadmill. Honestly, nobody gives a fuck what you are wearing.
Dislike is unfair, avoid is probably better.
That anon probably dated a cutter- because he's stupid. Dating a cutter gives a life long hatred of all cutters- because they are all the same.
But, I try not to judge, I see a cutter, I avoid them, that's that.
Anon, it's like, say 1/1000 people had horns growing out of their head. And those people have 99.9999% chance to be terrible people- soon you would have a large population of people that hate people with horns on their head, flat out
I dislike attention whores/drama queens and people mentally unstable, cutters fall into both categories. I never dated a cutter but I knew some special snowflakes who cut and they all were crazy and pathetic.
Maybe she is self concious of her arms - I don't like mine because u think they look chubby so I wear long sleeves.
Or it could just be whatever she was wearing earlier or a random shirt she brought along to work out in.
Weird thing to even notice imo.
it's something you'd get if you were into fashion. the expensive version of this would be pic related (y-3 qasa racer low). were probably the shoe I hated the most when I started browsing /fa/ and now I'd give my left testicle to have one of these (well and the clothing to go along with it since im a poorfgt)
What do you mean? The fact that you ask this question makes me think you're autistic. Not trying to insult you, just a dumb question to ask.
Fashion is about looking good. Some people take that as looking like whatever is trendy, some people take that to mean looking good in their own opinion.
Ok, fair enough. While I'm not exactly autistic, you can think of me as such in regards to fashion.
Now, "looking good" seems to be subjective, since like you said different people take it to mean different things and have different opinions, but at the same time seems to be objective, since there are all these rules, and people in general seem to find that certain things look good. Also, statements like >>16669661
"it's something you'd get if you were into fashion" imply that there is a right and a wrong to fashion. Also, if it were completely subjective, what would be the point of /fa/? How do you make these two ideas work together, that it's both objective and subjective?
I guess you could basically take what the majority finds to be good looking and then say that that's what looking good is, but I'm not sure if that would work for those shoes. Otherwise, I guess you would need to have some kind of authority that would say what exactly is good looking. So basically when >>16669661 implies that the shoe is objectively good looking is he basically saying that because that's the general opinion of /fa/ or because some designer made the shoe?
I've been lurking /fa/ for a few weeks and this confuses me.
sorry, I have a knack for expressing myself in the wrong way, english isn't my primary language. there are various styles and genres within fashion, this one would be...athletic avant-garde (somewhat) which may not be your cup of tea. personally I think they have an interesting and objectively distinct look, and I think they look good because of that. theyre detailed to the point to which they arent bland or boring, but not overly so to the point where they grab too much attention making it impossible to create synergy with the rest of the outfit, as an outfit should function as a whole, and not be seen as various individual pieces. that's the best way I could put it. again, it might not be your style (you could be more of a menswear guy for example, or maybe you prefer rocker chic, it's something you'll find the more you dwell into the world of fashion), so it isn't really guaranteed that you'll like those shoes, but chances are you'll understand why other ppl like them.
So basically there are genres in fashion and what is considered good for each genre is basically the consensus of the people that adhere to that genre, or how much it matches the "philosophy" and "esthetics" of the genre I would suppose?
The thing that confuses me in fashion is that there is a question of preference, but at the same time, contrarily to something like music, where you listen to whatever you like for your own pleasure, fashion is directed towards others if understand correctly. So you basically wear stuff for yourself but for others at the same time, it seems weird.
if you wear brands to show off chances are you aren't into fashion at all, or at least fashion in the sense of art. yeah clothing can be used to heighten your social status unlike music, since its something that costs money and can vary from very little to a whole fucking lot (and everything in between) and its something that you show to everyone but people who truly are into fashion will simply enjoy it for the aesthetic of garnments within themselves or the pleasure of matching colors and shapes in the form of clothing irregardless of the brand or price point. (tho that being said, more expensive clothing is usually better, of course)
also people who just use fashion for showing off usually dress like fucking shit just for the record. never buy clothing just because you think people will think more of you. buy it because you appreciate the design and because it matches other pieces on your wardrobe.
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I don't really have a wardrobe right now and I'm not into fashion in any sense. I don't think I have the type of personality to wear brands to show off, though the idea of wearing stuff and people automatically thinking more of me does seem pleasant.
Right now I dress like a fucking slob and I want at least to learn to dress decently.
What's wrong with wearing long sleeves at the gym, they make plenty of comfy, breathable long sleeve stuff these days. I'd assume it's just your preference to wear long sleeve, on the off chance that I would notice at all.. which is unlikely.
