So I was reading through my FB feed when I came across the GQ post of most stylish man of 2014.
I read the comics and was chuckling to myself of all the butthurt old men and fat white guys in fedoras hating on the fact kanye beat out david gandy. (Kanye dresses like a bum lol does he even wear suits?)
My girlfriend askes what im chuckling at and I tell her how its funny that GQ readers think Kanye isn't one of the influential people in Fashion in the year 2014 and she said that people only think he dresses well cause he wears expensive clothes and that sweatshirts and sneakers looks stupid.
I lost my shit /fa/. I told her how kanye could wear anything Gandy can wear and pull it off but Gandy can't pull off half of what kanye wears. She started screaming at me about how kanye wears fur coats in the summer over 500 dollar hoodies and that his sneakers look stupid.
My girlfriend is a manager of a fucking Nordstrom so I'd feel like she'd know something about the fashion world. I asked her who she thinks should win and all she kept saying was "not kanye"
I feel like people let his retarded lifestyle and dumb antics influence their opinions on things that don't relate to it such as his fashion or his music.
The fuck man why am I so mad? Im not a dick rider or anything I can respect the guy is one of the few benchmarks in mens fashion.
Also david gandy has someone dress him for fuck sakes.
it's okay man, i'm typing on a tablet too (i have a bluetooth keyboard so it's okay though)
you should really become an architect, it's a very effay job
Not surprised, Have you ever looked at the profile pictures of people who comment on GQ FB posts.
They all act like they /fa/ but they're fat fedora wearers who discovered fashion 6 months ago and use GQ as a place to start. Then they go and buy suits from "Suit Palace" buy one get the other suit free and its 2 sizes too big but because they're in a suit they're automatically /fa/.
Doesnt matter to these people if they look like Lawyers who have commercials on their CBS affiliated channel at 2am or community college teachers only on tuesdays and wednesdays.
The suit has lots of power man, its understanding that a suit alone doesn't get you anywhere in /fa/
Those people my friend, those are the type of people that think Kanye has no style.
>she said that people only think he dresses well cause he wears expensive clothes and that sweatshirts and sneakers looks stupid.
She's right though.
Kanye looks chubby, uncomfortable and awkward in lots of his fits. Fuccbois just glorify anything he wears due to the price and their gay infatuation with the guy.
I always feel like kanyes style is something only members of some exclusive club can understand.
The vast majority of people let his antics influenced their opinion on his music. (But guys who know music well and study it like a science understand that MBDTF is one of the best albums in the last 10 years.)
It's the same thing with fashion, when you can understand that fit is more important then colour ecs. Those are the guys who can understand kanye knows what he's doing when it comes to this wheelhouse.
But cmon North West? Holy fuck what was he thinking.
So you WOULDN'T be uncomfortable if you had creeps with cameras following you around EVERYWHERE you went?
That's creepy af tbh and there might be something wrong if you don't think that's a violation of your privacy and it doesn't make you feel uncomfortable, chubby and awkward.
The guy is human just like the rest of us, alright?
>Confirmed for underweight faggot who thinks anyone who weighs more than 175 pounds is fat
Well, Kanye dresses like a fucking moron, but GQ is a rag and who cares about David Gandy. I guess what I'm trying to say is that you're the king of the morons. That must be nice for you.
i agree with OP and this
ever since kanye was producing beats he was way past his time and he's always been on the next level with everything he does. They don't understand it now, but i can guarantee you people will eventually realize the impact of kanye and his genius in the years to come. I think he's still really getting his own style (especially compared to her previous eras... kek) but kanye is one man who is dedicated to creating and appreciating art
Still, your perception of reality is highly skewed if you think that Kanye West is "chubby"
This guy is toned af
If you still feel he is chubby you may also be feeling insecure about your own weight, due to extended exposure of /fa/, pls consider leaving this forum for the sake of you're mental health
>Posts the one shirtless pic of him from the time he was in the best shape ever.
Sorry faggot, your bf has bigger tits than me.
So what? Paparazzi are paid to get the most unflattering pics of this dude, professional photographers are paid to take flattering pictures of him. Who really knows what ye looks like without a shirt besides Kim? Images are an illusion, don't be a fucking fool.
As for Kanye's physique I can't make heads or tales of what the fuck that has to do with his influence. Regardless of whether or not people like how he dresses it's kinda hard to ignore how many people pay attention to what the motherfucker wears. Fuck, it's impossible to ignore what he wears because pictures of his clothes are proliferated goddamn everywhere. Seriously, try to go a week, not even a week a fucking day, without seeing a picture of Kanye on just about any given menswear platform. Influence and taste are independent of each other you motherfuckers. (But 4real4real, we've all seen at least one Kanye alphet and thought to ourselves "damn I want to wear that")
I must agree, people can't see past his attitude. Despite making himself a laughinstock in the fa industry from time to time, you can't deny that dude has pulled some great cops and has serious potential.
>my gf is the manager of a nordstrom so i thought she would know something about fashion
L M F A O
there are about exactly two nordstrom locations that even carry any good brands at all. store 1 in seattle and the sf flagship. and even then, 90% of the items and brands are still trash. your run of the mill nordstrom will literally carry 100% garbage and their best selling menswear item will be polyester printed button-up tommy bahama shirts that retail for 89.99 to the BIG SPENDERS of the suburbs.
PS if your gf is the store manager of the SF flagship, she's ultra hot 9.9/10 my lord
he's like 17% bf there. that's not even that much, just means he kept eating and stopped lifting for like 4 or 5 months. you know literally nothing about body composition. you're probably skinnyfat but you think you're skeleton-mode
>not knowng everything related to fashion even if you don't like it and it doesn't interest you
See this is why none of you will ever get ahead in life, you only look at one side of things. Also lol at you getting defensive and having to resort to calling wheelchan a cripple and make fun of what she wears. Kanye has a gut, end of story. Does he dress good? Sometimes. He can only get away with some of his fit only because he's famous and well known, people who try to imitate his fits (perfectly I might add) look bad because it's just some dude in clothing that doesn't go well together. What happens is the same way people are totally disgusted by his attitude and are turned off from him, other people fall in love with that narcissistic bull shit and see him as a god.
Like someone said before, people only think he looks good because it's him wearing it. It's like Johnny Depp, you can't imitate their styles because if a famous person is doing it it's more acceptable that if your average joe is doing it. People who call out others for hating Kanye only because of his personnality are just swooned by it and are just as biased.
everyone is biased, this is the human condition. but don't make the naive mistake of thinking that because everyone is biased, that all biases must be equal and self-cancelling. subjectivism leads to nihilism, but nihilism fails. we still somehow find value through our subjective experiences (or biases), and still find ways to account for our favoring of some values. all reasons are bollocks, but some bollocks smells better than other bollocks.
everyone here talking about kanye fits
gandy is a model who does not have much of his own taste
he wears the clothes that he is paid to
in the year 2010 + 4 he's wearing marks and spencers
the height of dadcore
Wow, looks like the right person got in a car accident and ended up paralyzed for once.
Please tell me, does he look as uncomfortable and awkward like you when you shit your pants on accident?
>misreading some text
nigga my reading comprehension isn't bad and I still misread it the first time too.
it's an embarrassing mistake on his part to post about it trying to be a smartass lol random xD and buzzing about projection because he repeats what he heard in one of his psych classes before he dropped out
He's just a typical Kanye cum gargler. They always get so ass ravaged when anyone speaks disparagingly about their boyfriend, they cant help but reveal their weak minded, bitch made selves.
Do you need to know about fashion to manage a Nordstrom? Or is it because it's high end that you need to know? I'm a deputy manager of a TV retailer and I couldn't tell you much about what we actually sell.
You didn't actually respond to the point he made about the camera, just said something about a boyfriend.
I'd like you to actually respond to this. I don't know much about Kanye other than that he has some nice begetta veneta chelseas and don't really like him outside of that
I do agree that Kanye should have won 'influential person' over gandy though. You said yourself that these people here are 'dickriding.' Is that not influence? Are you telling me Kanye hasn't made people start wearing shit? Gandy is an attractive guy but he doesnt even dress himself, and who wears something because Gandy did?
quite frankly i don't understand why you trip. i get it you had a tough life and nobody other than your family ever showed affection and or attention, but this is no place to seek such things.
Also you don't know the first about fashion and you dress like shit.
drop your trip and stop shitposting please.
I'm not a fan or "hater" but I can appreciate his fits (who are in fact definitely better than e.g. gandys) and his works (especially MBDTF, didn't like the newest album though).
All the people in RL I know "hate" a celebrity are plebs that get their opinions straight from gossip media and "what's cool to dislike". I.e. plebs
Lmao this post is too much
Dude are you having a stroke? You can't seriously think this about music patricians lol
what do you hate more about yourself
the fact that you need to bully girls over the internet to mask your insecurities
the fact that you'll never be as popular on the internet even if you died in a car accident, in fact nobody would even miss you?
I didn't say he wasn't influential. I agreed that people think he dresses well because his clothes are expensive and he looks awkward in a lot of his fits.
I even agree he's more influential than Gandy... hell almost everyone knows who Kanye is, but not Gandy. I just personally don't like a lot of Kanyes style and think it looks stupid on most of the guys who attempt to imitate him.
I already know I'm a poorfag malltier pleb fucgirl. I dont care. I came here to learn and exchange hair, skin, makeup and nail tips first and foremost. But I also have an interest in clothing even if I cant afford most of the shit I would really like. It was mentioned to me by a few users that I should trip because as a girl I offer a slightly different perspective on fashion and it's nice for girls to know when they're being critiqued or assisted by another female.
I'll admit I don't get much attention irl and I do like the positive reinforcement I've been getting here. But with the good comes the bad and I'm not a weak minded person so I can handle it as it comes.
>pro tip: You should be glad I trip because if you don't like me, you can now easily block me.
>tfw listen to kanye
>tfw none of my friends like kanye
>tfw they're all on the "hate kanye" bandwagon without knowing anything about him or having actually listened to his songs
>tfw it makes me mad on the inside
>le business casual is le epitome of fashion /b/ros!!!
the dude is undeniably /fa/core(plebcore), whether that is good or bad is another discussion.
R u just jealous because he has legs
What the actual fuck is going on in this thread? Seriously you guys are all pathetic, getting so assblasted over a celebrity? I can't understand this
>I asked her who she thinks should win and all she kept saying was "not kanye"
Why are you expecting a woman to have backups to her arguments? Don't you know that you're supposed to treat them as children?
I hate how this board dick rides the fuckin' dumbest autistic nigger in America.
this this this this.
just take a look at fucking reddit, the central market for cockgobbling people who will eat up whatever opinions they are fed. they fucking loathe kanye.
90% of people in the real world whose sole source of news and information come from facebook and generic local tabloid hate kanye.
uninformed plebs just love to rag on kanye, despite never having listened to his music or knowing anything about him.
>she said that people only think he dresses well cause he wears expensive clothes and that sweatshirts and sneakers looks stupid.
ur gf is right lol
ye had a few good albums but he dresses like any other nigg- uhh i mean RAPPER sorry tumblrmods, didnt mean to trigger u :)))))))
Remember how kanye put his concert on pause and told those people in wheelchairs to stand up for like ten minutes straight?
Probably has something to do with her reaction.
Kanye is an egomaniacal idiot. I can see why she wouldnt like him given the circumstances.
