In all honesty last week was, rather, quite amusing with palewave and shit.
But it makes me sad when I remember that this is probably going to be the only summer of 2014 highlight on /fa/.
And it wasn't even a real thing!
Your thoughts on last week, and this summer in general, fuccbois?
w2c these t-shirts?
whats some alternatives to high end sneakers like geobaskets/ramones/arenas/maison martin margiela that are on a poor mans budget >£200, although idc about buying used off ebay.
Yes ive already got af1 mids but they are seen as the chav shoes in my area so i cant always wear them
What is sizing like on dr marten 1461s? I wear a 9/9.5 in US, the dr marten site says to get a UK 9 but zappos says a UK 9 = US 10.
Does anyone remember a song that is in some European language. It's a white dude. The video is super "artistic" or avant garde or whatever. He says hugo boss multiple times if that helps.
It's really bugging me.
I know that there's all these new memes, but why do 99% of the posters, anon and trip alike, all vehemently shit all over anything that isn't drapey, black, and with a bomber jacket/sneakers
Because they just jumped on a waggon they thought was cool just as a new fresh trend is starting and they will be late adopters again, feeling rejected exactly like they felt in school when they "hated" "fashion".
Most people don't act that way but like the other anon said, we're going through a change right now so the people wearing memeochrome/gothninja are sort of rabid right now. Their identity is being taken away from them.
I need white sneakers and I'd like some that are high quality. I'm thinking about buying the greatS royale in blanco when they come out next week.
Anyone have any experience with greatS royale? Should i just buy a more basic sneaker e.g. chuck taylors? Any recommendations for a sneaker like the royale?
This does feel like fa is kind of lost. The more fashion forward are gravitating towards several new trends & aesthetics, while the ones who are fucking monochrome serpico are fighting tooth & nail to keep their look relevant with the "stop making shit up", "stop forcing new looks", "this will blow over come fall all black forever" because they're insecure about being late to the game and/or dropping wayyyy too much on what will ultimately be the early 2010s version of the scene kids or late 90s/early 00s numetal jnco crowd
no one has a problem with color, and this has been evidenced throughout the entire year.
people have problem with a samefagging shitposter shoving his forced meme down everyones throat
as much as you like to believe theres a great schism thats going down thats tantamount to some gret autistic epic battle youve imagined in your head, there isnt.
Is there anywhere to cop light and "baggy" clothes like this, that don't cost $$$?
You must be new
It happened several times on fa already
The most recent one being gorfningo memeochrome kids forcing out the workwear heritage guys. It happens every couple to few years. It's happening again, undoubtedly.
Sorry about being left behind. I'm sure you really like your black skinny jeans and bomber jacket, too. Damn shame.
this is like someone going on /v/ and seeing a halo thread and saying
>This is the only example of good videogames that I've seen on /v/ in the past few hours I've started browsing here
i mean, what do you expect
i can tell who you are because of the way you type and because youre the only one who uses memeochrome
the only thing the dadcore spammer in 2012 did was change the fundamental view that #menswear was the only feasible way to dress, which lead to acceptance of gothninja and streetwear; the emergence of these styles didnt force anything out. since then, /fa/ has been a streetwear/high fashion. the only time /fa/ was ever predominately monochrome was during the street goth phase of late 2012/early 2013, when people were buying fabrixquare sweats and actual pain snapbacks. since then, /fa/'s been mostly just general streetwear, and the acceptance of "normcore" modes of dressing for the majority of 2014 is evidence that there isnt any rift because monochrome is far from the majority. look at any waywt for the past year and a half and youll see that more than half of the time its not monochrome.
the conflict you see is due to the reaction against someone, probably you, forcing a meme (palewave) down everyones throat, even though the "trend" doesnt meaningfully describe anything outside of a color palette. youve then taken this to conjure a monochrome boogeyman thats trying to stifle some supposed innovation thats actually nothing new and something thats been long accepted on /fa/ already. once again, no one has a problem with color, as shown time and time again, but youve constructed this narrative whereby anyone who disagrees with the palewave shitposting is obviously a memeochrome richard owens fans, even though theres nothing to support that, and youve become so lost in your own rhetoric that youre completely out of touch with reality.
heres another post of me saying the same thing to you
Wow, you are not only completely ignorant on how things have transpired here over the years, you care so much about anonymous pictures of fabric that you posted a long, albeit misinformed diatribe. I think you need to take a break from 4chan for a while, and then study the archives before you come back. Your argument was the exact same people gave when streetwear took over. "It's not all guys in suits, and you forcing this fad designer with his pseudo gothic nonsense isn't changing anything". Six months later, every other thread: "where can I find jackets with oversized hoods like in the pic?"
I want to start running but I don't know shit about running shoes. Can you guys recommend the cheapest good pair? I'm not going to get serious, but I need something.
Also, should I keep looking online or am I better off trying on pairs at the store?
That the person you were trying to refute is correct despite wording it poorly. /fa/'s majority realizes that the commonplace styles here have become more mainstream and exhausted, and since it's a lot of beginners that only like to pretend they know everything, they're creating/hopping aboard what are essentially made up subcultures/styles hoping to either trick people into thinking their taste is the new thing, hoping they found the new thing first, or just plain wanting to belong with what's current. Some may be trolls, but not all of them. The few left discovered the now dead former prevalent aesthetic here late, and are now desperately trying to keep it relevant.
thats almost exactly what i was trying to say, and have been repeatedly arguing these past couple weeks, so i dont know what part of my post you found disagreeable.
however, i do find fault in
>The few left discovered the now dead former prevalent aesthetic here late, and are now desperately trying to keep it relevant.
can you point out any evidence of this because i havent seen it myself outside of palewave false flags. monochrome has always struck me as an entry-level standby on fashion boards because its relatively hard to fuck up and accessible for a lot of people, so thats why its pretty ubiquitous. there really isnt any need to defend it because it isnt going away any time soon.
All black never go away. But there do seem to be a few anons who insist that, regardless of the season, that all black is the only thing in high fashion currently or the foreseeable future, cherrypicking runway examples the same way the couple of palewave guys (some anon found the dude bragging about starting it on twitter) were doing.
That being said, I wonder what the next predominant style will be for /fa/, past the blanket term "streetwear"
can someone give me and alternative to the generic black converse?
Are these shoes do able. I know they are not the greatest but. I got them for very cheap.
How to pull off pic related? What can I wear it besides black skinnies and CP's?
not much in other words. that's why these types of showcase top-layer pieces should be purchased when you already have a working wardrobe or money to burn since it goes with little and is so memorable that you can't really wear it all the time.
where can a nigga cop some dr.martens 1461 monos in eu?
I'm looking for a pair of black sneakers to wear with black skinnies. I was thinking something like this. Any recs?
>vehemently shit all over anything that isn't drapey, black, and with a bomber jacket/sneakers
>anything that isn't
wow, please we shit on anything and everything and then not post fit
you new or smth
So I actually paid 400€ for these Chucks with zippers...
Should I keep em?

cmon fa help your bro out,

how big are your wardrobes

i want to try a capsule/minimalist wardrobe but dunno how realistic that is for day-to-day living, especially bc womens clothing is more varied than menswear
Best black jeans in the 100~150€ price range?
What to wear with maroon shoes pic related?
I've been wanting a jacket for ages (I actually don't own one).
Like the look of MA-1 Flight Jacket and Pic related (Nyco ECWCS) . Does anyone know sizing for these. I'm skinny / athletic 6'4, usually go large.
I'm thinking Tall XL for Flight Jacket, not sure about Nyco ECWCS, Large or XL, any ideas?
hey /fa/. I have a question for the skellies.
Do you eat only when you are hungry?
I feel like i'm packing extra weight because of eating out of boredom or routine, so i've found myself wondering what hunger feels like.
Also general tips about daily routine, that you think helps you stay thin might help.
What should I wear with this jacket?
Any brands that sell t shirts with central small photograph and small text graphics?
I like the look of quite a bit of carhartt wip, wtaps and neighborhood stuff.
w2c some comfy slippers?
And where can I get some slim sweat pants like pic?
Looking for some black/white high top sneakers to wear with black skinny jeans for a monoschromish look? I was thinking some something like pic related, but I think something more plain might be better
open to reccomendations
those things remind me of middleschool. i'd personally say pick up a pair of shoes with the chuck silhouette, though preferably not by converse. have you checked out shoes like pottery?
I really, really like how moc toe boots look but you guys all seem to hate them. What gives?
yup, that's the comment I was pretty worried about. They did look awfully highschool tier to me even though I liked the look.
Was looking for alternatives, thanks for the suggestion.
WHERE CAN I COP PF FLYERS IN CANADA PLS

Hey i'm looking for shoes similar to: http://www.thecorner.com/us/men/high-tops-trainers_cod44639788hb.html for around 100 bucks.
I'd buy these right here but I live in Canada so I can't get in on this deal. Doesn't have to be too close, i'm just looking for something similar.
Yeah, I like them too, you're going to just have to come to grips with the fact that /fa/ is filled to the brim with faggots.
fucking dope would cop raikage other than gaara ay is probably the strongest kage
alot of jordans can be copped for that much but its hard to find tasteful drops gl in your search
8.5? alot of stores sell docs so just go ad try on a pair and go off of that
it important to try in store for running shoes but def cop online if you can get them cheaper and can wait

i want to cop some but im p sure they are played out for females—does that mean they're played out for males as well?
comfort me /fucc/
Hi friends, I need some help.
In a couple days, I have one of the most important dinners of my life. My old chef is quitting, and it is his last night. There's going to be a lot of big name people (celebs, but mainly other big name chefs I need to network with) and I need to look good. It isn't quite a suit and tie kind of place, but I want something a step up from my normal collared shirt and jeans.
What is medium-formal and still fashionable to wear? Is a sport coat and collared shirt in order? I'm completely oblivious to this kind of stuff, sadly.
/fa/ I need your help with the following
a reasonably priced black messenger bag for everyday use and a place that sells skinny cargo pants (i know uniqlo used to sell them, but I don't know anyone else that does currently)
Now that I think of it, it might be different, I'm not sure. The only suit I own is tailored and doesn't have any sizes in it. I did just grab a fitted dress shirt that's a 16 1/2 34/35 that's a little tight around the neck.
they run big i'm pretty sure, alpha industries isn't know for slim/fitting cuts. also since i don't think anyone knows about it, enter promo code "EN59" (i believe that's it). takes them down a little bit.
What would cause shit stax with one pair of jeans over another? I have two pair, but the same brand but in different colors. One stax exceptionally well, but the other is meh. Site says the only difference in the two it my better stax an inch longer inseam & 0.2 inches smaller leg opening. But measured out they appear the exact same.
I do not own a sport coat, or chinos. I'm going to have to go buy things. I'm kind of pale with blonde hair / blue eyes. My mind goes to a simple black jacket, but should I try something else?
Ok, some googling, I kinda like this look. A khaki (or whatever you call this color) sport coat, I have some black pants (dockers or something) then I'll try a couple shirts, probably end up with a gray or a gray/blueish one. Seem legit?
Can anyone suggest a good brand for messenger bags that are reasonably priced? I already checked Cote & Ciel and their messenger bags are incredibly hideous and overpriced.
Michelin star, super fancy, super nice. You don't see many suits, though. I spend 90 hours a week in a kitchen wearing a chef jacket, so fashion isn't exactly my thing. I'm actually excited to buy new clothes. I haven't done that in like 2 years.
Took at look at MAKR. I love their minimalist approach to their goods, but their messenger bags are hideous and $180 USD. I wouldn't even cop them if they were 50. :(
The most important two things for me are durability and minimalism. I would prefer either canvas or leather or some other unique material if the brand offers it. Again, I would prefer a black messenger bag unless I find a different neutral tone that really catches my eye.
Just copped Red wing 875s after wanting them for ages. They are amazing except the heel slips significantly when i step. The woman who owns the store who sells them said this is very normal and when the shoes are worn in my foot will be pushed towards the bac of the shoe stopping the slipping. But if it doesn't im shit out of luck...
im really worried about it. Anyone have any experience with heel slipping with leather boots? or the 875s in particular.
what do you think about loake 1880 shoes?
I was reading some threads on styleforum yesterday and these shoes were recommended as one of the very few, good, cheaper alternatives to allen edmond shoes with an excellent price/qualiy ratio
>when the shoes are worn in my foot will be pushed towards the bac of the shoe stopping the slipping
LOL fucking what
If anything the opposite will happen and the slip will become more significant as the leather stretches
Get some insoles. I recommend Superfeet, since you can size them by the volume available in your shoe. You can get returned ones for $20 shipped on ebay.
been using red wings for work for ages. shes correct in that. also these things are going to become very loose once they are broken in. my current pair I bought pretty tight and now are perfect
No she's an idiot, you want them all to fit snug off the bat, and break them in gradually if they're real leather. If you slip, you're never going to stop slipping because the shoe is too fucking big. It's not going to magically shrink because you broke the front of the shoe in.
I've been a shoe salesman for 3 years, I know the tricks, and she straight up lied to you for a sale.
Well i bought an 8.5 and the 8 was way too small. it fits very well apart from the heel so i'm pretty sure i got the right size. Maybe the heel thing is specific to the shoe? she only sells redwing 875s and she said you should start with some heelslip...
How do you call the type of jacket Jerry's wearing? Trying to do total normcore Seinfeld style
Not trying to be difficult just suggesting because red wings are sized differently from most leather shoes and because they're are moc toes maybe the wearing procedure is different i appreciate you responding! i'm trying to avoid an attempt to swap the shoes at all costs because i don't believe the 8fits properly. it's really tight.
im on the prowl for one as well but i cant find one in a decent price range except adyn abut i dont really like the aesthetic of theirs
good luck in your search though and if you find one hmu next time you see me
where can i get clothes if im a gigantic person
6'5 300lb. im tall and broad shouldered so i dont look obese at all but dont let that fool you, because i am fat.
the big and tall stores around me all have shit selection, minus the foundry part of jcpenny. are there any /fa/ stores either irl or online where i can find something decent to cover my disgusting form?
also i have size 17 feet
Where in Europe can I ordered all-white leather Vans Sk8-Hi?
Where can I order long (under)shirts with a side slit?
I'm a male college student looking to buy new shoes, what are some solid essentials? Specifically looking for a pair of sneakers (mostly white/black) for jeans, sweatpants, maybe chinos, and then a slightly nicer pair for chinos.
vans are basic and nice and some are decent looking enough to wear with chinos
a nicer pair could be a cp alternative but idk m8 if youve got casual shoes, i.e. not sneakers, you should be good
what face type do I have?
and what kind of facial hair (if any) should I get?
