So I was one of those retards that bought into the #menswear meme and totally regret it. Who the fuck needs to really wear $400 Allen Edmonds anyway? Those leather soles and cork base are absolute misery. Anyway, I'm sick of the whole thing and hell even the supposed "tailored" fits make me feel stuffy now so I threw out most of my styleforum autism uniforms.
Now I just want a simple, casual, minimalist look without being a slob. Essentially a respectable low-maintenance wardrobe without too much pretentiousness. Do you have infographics or inspo for what I'm talking about?
pic of a poor uncomfortable tryhard for your troubles
Not pics, but I usually wear some kind of boot, slacks that taper a little but offer a lot of freedom of movement, plain T shirts and light sweaters as my first layer. Especially if you're yoked, this can look good with a little thought put into shoes, fit and colors, maybe even neat socks.
An example could be
George W. Bush signature socks (not kidding)
Mountain Khaki pants
Smathers and Branson or Murray Leather belt.
Dark Grey Patagonia merino sweater.
good luck unlearning the menswear meme it really sticks to you
After 7+ years on this board I still do not understand why people on /fa/ feel the need to "buy in" to a style....
The whole menswear thing has a time and place, it doesn't mean once you have a few nice pieces you need to dress that way ALL the time.
Nothing is stopping you from wearing comfycore pieces one day, and menswear the next. Stop trying to think of fashion as defined categories, it's depressing.
Maybe you should slowly build your own idea of style, instead of relying on other people's infographics to tell you how to dress.
Otherwise you'll just end up another "dressed by the internet" dweeb.
i did that recently as well
i just ran out and bought some casual shoes, chukkas, and a pair of black cobat looking boots, still wear selvedge, more black tees, different classic silouette jackets that are NOT a pea coat/p-coat
nothing is more normie tier than a black north face soft shell
Very simple. Jeans, t shirts, basic sneakers (stans? Cp?), outerwear as needed but hoodies and shit. Maybe a flannel if you feel like it.
Just go to the mall, online, get what you like. Wear it when it's appropriate. If you want oversized fits sweatshirts and y-3/yohji style trousers or joggers might work.
Then all of sudden, out of nowhere, as if wrenched into existence solely due to the random chance of the universe, a piece of good advice was posted to the fashion board of a corsican pasta kneading website.
And then, just like that, it was already over, never to occur again.
that shit is just common sense you retards. nothing insightful to praise about.
i really hope you underage faggots would leave this board
We all know that feel /fa/m.
#menswear was a mistake at that age. What a STUPID moron I was!
You should be dressing yourself in Yohji head to toe you moron richfuck.
Don't buy #menswear or minimalism if you got the bucks for the high tier stuff.
Holy shit you dressed ridiculous (me too).
Sieg seriously sell all that shit, you looked so out of place.
i have friends who do it, only wear that sort of goofy thrift core look. i seem to change the way i dress every day. wore a polo neck today will probably wear thrift core tomorrow
Minimalism aka Raf Simmons Core is never going to die because of the simplicity of it.
I recommend an actual style over it through but well if you don't want to fcuk up or excel ever minimalism is for you.
