Hey /fa, I've been lurking for a while trying to get a good idea on how to star my wardrobe.
What are some /fa essentials I need to cop that I can build of off?
well it obviously depends where you want to start.
first and foremost, LURK. I don't know how long but i'd say a month.
It's probably safe to say that you'll need basic tees (everyone will tell you Uniqlo) so you can probably buy those so long. (maybe stick to black and white/ neutral colours at first)
You should probably read the sticky if you haven't.
Lurking will help you find a style that appeals to you. You'll need a nice pair of pants.
obviously, you can skip all this and instantly become an effay meme by buying rick owens and a shit tonne of drape.
point is to keep it under control and dress like yourself. Start with dressing well normally (learnt by lurking) and if you want to move on high fashion from there then do that. After a month you'll definitely have an idea of what you want.
(read your question again and realised i didn't answer)
Answer: basic tees (simple colours) from uniqlo
white sneakers - common projects/stan smith's
pants that fit well
build from there

Everything you need here OP. Maybe less color because /fa/ hates colors. Add your underwears of choice and a nice pair of sneakers and you're set.
>Maybe less color
COLOR IS GOOD
you'll look like an edgelord in all black unless you're handsome as fuck, there are good color tones in this display, this layout is 100x better than what most of /fa/ dress like
my personal essential list...
coats / jackets:
- fishtail parka
- workers jacket
- wool overcoat
- down jacket
- black jeans
- raw indigo denim
- grey wool trousers
I was checking out babby's first raws and found these, but they're all out.
I don't know store stuff, is there any way to know when they'll restock?
If not, any alternatives for similar prices you could point me to?
I beefed it
that's how normal people dress though, you'd look so much more tryhard and weird wearing memeochrome
Actually, you can wear anything and look tryhard. It's about how comfortable you are in your clothing that determines whether or not you look tryhard. Why do you think most pics are of people walking out of people standing around randomly (ops pic). Everything you wear looks good and ugly to somebody.
Welcome to /fa/, glad to have you here with us
Most of those don't even look like CPs, except for the kent Wangs and Zara ripoffs
Sure all of them are white sneakers, but they don't fit the same aesthetic at all (vans slipons lol)
Doesn't make sense to call them "cp alternatives"
thought most of /fa/ lives with their parents or works minimum wage (no offense to anyone of course, it's just what I gathered from being here a while)
What city you in mate? Best to try on some different raws irl to see how they fit
Unbranded is cheap, but the fit isn't for everyone
Their "skinny" is more of a slim straight
not sure if that's the sterling or euro symbol, but Topman has some cheap ones about $40 to $70 that fit slim (quality isn't very good though)
I heard they're bigger in the UK than they are here In Canada so it should be easy to find one.
w2c that hair
saw alpha industries at the eaton centre, but it's insulated so it's not as slim as one would want
also saw a couple of wool bombers by a brand called "RVLT" at showroom
No, that's not me. The "real" user actually posted in a thread like just today. I changed my name because I don't want to look like I'm impersonating him.
nah i like my life
