This will be a depressive thread
I started browsing /fa/ around 2009 and started going /fa/ around 2011. It was a great time, slim fit jeans were fresh, making colour combinations were fun and the way I start to expand my wardrobe with the help of browsing here/mixing my own style felt great.
But around last year I lost my ambition. I mostly know what I want from the industry and mastered my style (kinda similar to shia since I have the similar body type and less skinnier jeans) Now I feel like empty as a void. People nowadays wear everything they didn't before with the help of the internet and everybody is /fa/ nowadays.
How to beat this feeling?
I've definitely felt this before, I've been here for far too long, and sometimes I find myself really bored with fashion in general. What I do when I get like that is try to switch my style by looking at my life. Like think about where you are in your life, and study what kind of art, books, music you consume, and reflect that in how you dress. If not that, then it can help to learn to sew, and just kind of experiment, altering clothes from charity shops and whatnot.
There's something exciting about the novelty of the fashion industry - or any new hobby - that wears off over time.
Sometimes it helps to take a break and try something else for a while.
Been thinking about this and will try this. I think the way to progress in something you love is to be open minded and kinda be adventurous about it.

Kek none of those are what he wears though you would need a slim lapel and tie in flannel wool or cotton with medium to wide stripes.
Also I wouldn't go for that look unless you're at least 6' tall

>he still HASN'T learnt to synthesize multiple silhouettes / accessories / textures from various reference points across history and culture
Please stop, I'm begging you, this is just too much to handle.
My face when I realize there are people who will NEVER graduate from being told what to wear by teenagers on the internet. They will NEVER become a part of the travelled stylistic gentry who absolutely shit on fashion people and get begged at knife point to work for designers and magazines as full time ineffable muses.
Just kill yourself OP, it's over.
