Would you agree that discussing /fa/ related things irl is not /fa/ at all.
like being name dropping designers and letting people know that you are 'in-the-know' about fashion things. or letting it be known that 'fashion/clothes' is actually a hobby for you
anyone else kind of find it cringey when people outright talk about clothes, discuss designers, muh quality, muh brand or otherwise outright let people know that they are into fashion/clothes.
like it just seems like an extremely un/fa/ thing to do.
if you like reading about fashion and stuff then shit keep that to yourself, be lowkey about it and just wear your clothes.
trying to discuss clothing and let it be know that you are into /fa/ just is such Reddit fedora thing to do unless you are in the actual industry
it depends on who you're talking to.
if you're talking to someone else who clearly knows about fashion and you're having a conversation that's more detailed than "oh i like x piece" then you're going to have to 'name drop'
but if you're talking to someone who clearly doesn't care about designers or anything outside of just how clothes look then i can kinda see where you're coming from.
it's no different to talking to someone about anything e.g. music, cars etc
ofc if you're just naming a bunch of obscure designer brands for the sake of looking cool then that is retarded, but if you are actually having a discussion with someone else who knows what you're talking about then that is fine
this. I was trying to have conversation about some basic goat unisex designers with this girl and I could tell she thought that it wasn't normal for me to know this much about fashion.
honestly It feels so weird talking about clothes with people irl. People compliment me all the time and try to talk about clothes and ask for tips(Normally I just direct them to simple reddit fashion boards for inspo albums). I try to avoid actually talking about clothing to not sound autistic. Most people don't really have an interest in clothes past fast fashion,which isn't really a bad thing, but they aren't going to put much thought into silhouettes, material, or any other minute fashion detail shit that would be personally interesting to talk about.
Its not really something I would even want to talk about with normal people(/fa/ full of weirdos) on a regular basis anyway its just a personal hobby.
this is stupid, fashion isn't "le sekret club" that only you know about. there is a whole world outside of 4chan, you know. I agree that avoiding internet memefashion like palewave, gothninja, terms like that is smart.
but avoiding talking about designers? wtf? do you avoid talking about your favourite music and bands too? how insecure do you have to be?
the difference is that those are normie hobbies.
not saying fashion is a le secret club. it's just cringey af irl and just makes it obvious that you actually try and think about looking /fa/ which is not /fa/ at all.
Only reason 2 actually care about fa is if you're actually a designer yourself - keeping up to date and looking out for current competition. if you a cuck and distribute nothing into the world it's probably best 2 just off yourself
holy shit get off the internet, jesus christ. you're using /fa/ as an adjective and think you're in any position to talk about social interaction. "normies" talk about style all the time, the same way we talk about food, music, art, animals, sports, whatever - do you know what we DONT talk about? how reddit something is. just take a fucking break from your computer
Fashion is a normie hobby, but you're rarely going to find someone irl to talk about obscure designer fashion with, much like you will rarely find someone to talk about some obscure music or car
Yeah me and my gf talk about it all the time, shop together, etc.
Only reason I don't talk to anybody else about it is because my guy friends don't care and my girl friends don't really care either.
As much as I'd love to go up to some people and say "wow I love your outfit blah blah blah," I only do that when I'm drunk/high, and at then times I pretty much go full homo anyway.
