Alright /fa/, so for the last year or so my roommate has been copying my style by buying similar clothes to mine about a week or so after I do. First it was watches, after I decided to start wearing them, boom a month later he starts buying all kinds of them, after initially criticizing them for being unneccesary. I originally thought nothing of it but it started to get progressively more alike and more frequent that he would copy my shit.
Winter time comes and I start wearing blank sweaters and a tan parka, next week he has a tan parka of his own and the same style of uniqlo sweaters that I traveled across town for, only in different colors.
I decide my backpack is getting old and replace it with a small vans style grey one, THE NEXT DAY he has ALMOST THE EXACT SAME BACKPACK but with a small black pocket instead of an all grey one.
I had a pair of black vans hightops for a couple of months that I do that kind of wrap-around tie for and just about 2 weeks ago he bought the exact same shoes and began tying them the same way not even trying to hide it anymore.
Other instances include, same long socks with similar designs on them, same color jean jacket, and same sunglasses, where all of theses things he acquired shortly after I did.
So wtf do I do? do I start wearing some crazy next level /fa/ shit and see how far he'll go? or do I tell him to stop buying the same shit cause people are always going on about how we match and dress alike when he's just fuckin coppin my look
That could work but he might just start being half nude as well
At first it was kind of flattering but now it feels like I'm losing some identity, which is already hard to have in a world with this many people
plus it's not like he actually has good taste, the guy watches american dad every night
just talk to him and say you're kinda worried you're dressing too alike, and if he wants any advice buying stuff you'll be happy to help. it doesn't need to be weird/confrontational but if he gets all defensive just be honest and deal with it from there
He is beginning the host assimilation
After a time, when he has a more definite grasp of your ethos and is fully actualized, he will become you
I wish I could but being a college poorfag it's all I can afford and still look decent
If there's some magical cheap non-pleb stuff to get then I'd hop on that, but there really isn't
yeah yeah generic shit doesn't mean it's not a little weird that he gets exactly the same stuff or very close to in the same color or style regardless of brand, but yeah I guess I could use some more unique stuff thats why I'm here
Didn't say now, he must have photos on fb and y-you to.
Show us what ya got
>special snowflake shit is overplayed
I know there's billions of people on the planet, but it doesn't hurt to be an individual who forms their own thoughts and opinions (unlike my roommate)
weird I watched this movie like last week and it reminded me how much like ants we are, but I don't have a picture on facebook that is more recent than 2 years ago I haven't used it for a while
Just go full out goofninja, if you cant afford the real stuff cop some fakes from aliexpress first or some shit. He either doesn't know where to cop similar shit and gives up or he eventually follows you, thats when you start making fun of him for dressing in goofninja
First off, I don't see a real problem here.
Let me go into the matter further by telling you that your "style" is not unique or special in the slightest, there are at least 1 million people walking with black Vans on their feet right now (and that is just Australians).
Having Uniqlo, dirt cheap crap sweaters, isn't especially fashionable either, it's a low end H&M fake (which I guess is barely possible considering how low H&M stuff is), an American Apparel Hoodie is like 10 times more underground.
Your watch probably is some Gold Casio or some shit, so that's not very indie either and he might as well is just even more clueless about fashion than you and just doesn't give a fuck about your beta ass feelings, so he just steals your whack style.
You're a faggot who can not write correctly, nor punctuate. Let's not start with the fashion.
Okay let me clear some things up really quick.
>First it was watches, after I decided to start wearing them, boom a month later he starts buying all kinds of them
You bought a 30 dollar timex at walmart, ON SALE. I went online and bought a few from Jack threads, the website YOU invited me to.
> I start wearing blank sweaters and a tan parka, next week he has a tan parka of his own and the same style of uniqlo sweaters that I traveled across town for, only in different colors.
I went to town WITH you, I put things on hold while we were there, I didn't get paid till Friday so I went and grabbed them on Saturday just a few days after you. In fact I think I chose mine first. As far as the Parka, you KNOW that my girlfriend bought it for me because she liked yours. Again, I didn't buy it. Plus yours was from H&M (?) and mine was from ASOS and has chocolate wooden buttons. Yours are thin buttons and a zip. I think mine is nicer, and my hood comes off.
>I had a pair of black vans hightops for a couple of months that I do that kind of wrap-around tie for and just about 2 weeks ago he bought the exact same shoes and began tying them the same way not even trying to hide it anymore.
You do realize that every day I get emails from a dozen of websites YOU told me to sign up for, ASOS, Stylist, H&M, American Apparel, and Jack Threads, and that fucking STYLE is popular as fuck. You're not a special snowflake. I even returned the one pair because I thought it looked goofy on me.
>HE NEXT DAY he has ALMOST THE EXACT SAME BACKPACK
The backpack thing was pure coincidence but I bought mine from Herschel Brand at Nordstrom, and not fucking Zumies.
I'm frustrated at how pathetic you are, you think you're a fashion guru but you know the two of us are just fuccboiis who copy ads.
Seriously man, confront me instead of being a stupid faggot on the internet. Also your girlfriend told my girlfriend she thinks your skinny jeans are fucking with your junk because you can't get hard.
>Also your girlfriend told my girlfriend she thinks your skinny jeans are fucking with your junk because you can't get hard.
Based on your description of yourself, you have no identity, you wear boring cheap shit in a trendy way and pretend like you're a special snowflake.
I hope your roommate collapses the house of cards that is your fragile sense of identity, considering you built it on a foundation of a really boring fashion sense
give him some fashion advance, so he knows what he can do about his clothing without copying what you do
Teach him to play the game instead of showing him only the results, then he'll get excited and play it with his own style, which you can learn from too
