Who here participates in an alternative fashion or is part of a subculture or movement with a defined aesthetic?
I listen to Neofolk and dress in what this board tends to call HYC accordingly. Milsurp and stuff.
I find myself nostalgic for the days of rock n roll fashion.
I wear hardcore/straight edge/skinhead staples mixed in with my vintage athletic gear
Some streetwear, if you count white mountaineering and beams
When I'm going out I'll wear raws and boots
I like the ambience and spectacle of goth clubs. I like EDM and darkwave, and I don't like grinding on strangers so it's perfect.
I'm not a fulltime goth, though.
there's a thread about it right now and the abbreviation is used in it multiple times.
it's a stupid phrase though, it's just milsurp/tech/minimalism with an organic and semi-formal touch. A simple soldierly aesthetic.
Not that oioi cunt.
Just into the skinhead aesthetic
I think the point of being a true punker is to be oblivious to it. Like society made your jeans have patches because you cannot afford a new pair, not because that's how it was in the 70's so lets get the sizers out and order band patches online.
Haha no you are the conformist!
i wish street fashion, if not alternative fashion, had a bigger presence here. the WAYWT threads are samey as fuck and the trends (cores) we get are very timid.
well said. it seems like all the kids in the waywts are so scared of the negative feedback they could (and would) receive for truly expressing themselves in their clothing that they instead decide to risk nothing and call it "normcore".
not really into punk music at all but I think the DIY aspect of it is really cool.

I know. The only ones who stand out are those trying very hard to fit in.
The second you talk to them you can tell.
its funny too because they have the guts to post themself but not enough to try for themselves. i have some fits i like (cant call them good cause i dont want someone to challenge me to post a fit) that are wild compared to the waywt threads but im not about to post my shit on the internet for all my friends to potentially find and know that i post to such a cesspit. its the same reason im dont include any identifying information when i post about myself.
i mean its nothing truly wild, but i have some nice floral prints ive copped from thrift shops that ive seen nothing like, and ive got a pair of bean boots, while not uncommon ive never seen a pair posted on /fa/. its not actually crazy fits, its just, i dont wear a white t shirt a size to large and black pants a size to small and a pair of black or white sneakers.
ill probs never post a fit to /fa/ though.

I've been meaning to buy a leather jacket to sew this GISM patch I have on it.
Should I buy a cheap one just to fuck up with patches and spikes? I found this
anybody have experience with leather jackets?
ive always liked the way the guys from Disclosed dressed
not the same dude, but I want to get into DIY mainly upcycling stuff.
I need to learn how to sew because this looks like a pretty fun hobby

>sees trash example
>posts something even worse
I like the brand "straight to hell" leathers, the defector model specifically, it is 300 bucks tho, and needs the liner taken out and minor sewing for a perfect fit.
If you havent done this before i would suggest a thrift store leather or try to cop one online for around 75 bucks.
I used to do the goth thing and make fun of whatever was trendy by wearing layers of polos with lacy vampire collars a mile high, but now I'm old and can't tell what is mainstream and what is just losers on the internet being ironic. There is some really aesthetic shit attached to some heavily post punk influenced music and to parody it twice would be faux pas.
Still doing the goth thing but aside from large events I don't enjoy the scene anymore. It's mostly just the same circle of friends and after this long there's no purpose to the aesthetic. In fact it's counter productive to the original purpose in this day and age.
28, and that's not my pic.
Change your namefield anon.
Thanks for the replies. The thrift stores in my area never have that much besides vintage Nike stuff (which make great gifts)
The only time I saw a biker jacket it was to big on me. I guess I'll keep looking
The jacket you linked earlier from amazon is total trash, no offense. Stay true to a classic American or British biker jacket style. And always real leather.
Pacthes are hard to put on leather and often look like shit.
Get good quality studs. British cones look best imo.
Pic related is sakevi, the singer in GISM, sporting his custom leather.
Is also a great example
Sorry, I don't selfpost.
For anons who don't know, "corporate goth" tries to balance professional office attire with the goth aesthetic. It's not usually worn everywhere, just to work.
>mfw pic related is too gaudy for my job
>will have to stick to pinstripes, waistcoats, and striking color contrasts
I'm pretty big into the underground electronic scene in my state. Pretty much everyone just wears black though. Sometimes there are hardcore shows at the venue I go to and I get to see crust punks.
crusties are fun and like decent music
hippies are sleazy self-centered losers; they ruin the vibe at every show they gatecrash and are just horrible human beings
lol this reminds me
I saw Colin of Arabia a few years ago and they were selling a pack of cigarettes at their merch table
apparently it was shoplifted (they're militant straight edge)
so I guess every subculture can have a bad element
I always wear my military boots, to everything, even with a smoking.
I used to have a mohawk for a while, but I only wanted to try it. Trying to be a punk (stetically-wise) nowadays is stupid, unless u're a kid. The funniest part is that I don't have any ripped clothes, while everybody else wears them.
pic related is a doublet anon
