I just wanted to talk a little on something that's been bugging me about /fa/. I know some of you will get upset with me and tell me to leave if I don't like it here, but I'm just trying to get you guys to reflect a little on your own motivations for what you guys call "fashion." I've been here a lot longer than most of you have so I have some kind of authority here.

/fa/ has truly become an embarrassing place to visit. it ought to just become a general board for insecure teenage boys. It's one of the meanest, most spiteful places on the internet, full of people hating on everyone else and giving advice on things they are in no way qualified to give advice on

you talk about how fashion is about self-expression, but most of you guys are either trend hopping dick riders or else you need your hand held by /fa/ through every tiny little purchase you make

you guys talk about how you don't dress for girls, yet so many of you complain about tfwnogf and about how girls don't appreciate your "patrician" fashion sense

and some of the few WAYWT fits that get praise are just...how do i saw...godawful. the /fa/ hivemind has degenerated into retardation. you guys think rolling up your pants instantly makes a fit better...well let me tell you it doesn't

anyways, sorry for the personal blog. you guys just need to be shaken out of your rocker a little bit. get some real world experience. take a break from 4chan/tumblr/etc. for a while. get out there and talk to and hang out with regular people. stop being so insecure about what you look like. learn how to develop confidence through your personality, not through how much you spend on threads

sincerely,
a person probably older, more knowledgeable, and more experienced than you are

unsolicited /fa/ fix-em-ups by babey e:

>everyone post face in waywt

>everyone acknowledge that 4chan is not the place to find proper advice from qualified individuals, rather the opinions of a specified peer group

>everyone try to LOVE more.

all the best threads/posts/experiences i've had on /fa/ have happened when people approached each other with a universal LOVE, the love for a fellow human who is in the same weird position of browsing the 4chan fashion board. we aren't unified by trends or goths or ninjas, we aren't unified by memeshoes or memebrands or price tags, we are unified by our experience.

it's our experience of fashion and style that drives us to the board. something about it entices us to know more, to dress well, to conquer it, or to revel in the beauty of it. but something negative about the fashion world also pushes us to /fa/. the absurdity of the marketplace and the discourse, so focused on brands and approval from others, that it just seems ridiculous. so we seek out a space where fashion is brought down a few pegs, where we can discuss it from a removed perspective. still aware, but conceding the notion of a fashionable discourse or inner circle. it's all here, any fuckwad from scarborough can lurk and, with enough precision, begin to dress well, understand style. it's subversive, a sort of "pirate" fashion community, illegitimate and ramshackle. but i love it. i love ALL OF YOU. please LOVE US ALL BACK.

Not saying /fa/ should turn into a place like Reddit, but just being a bit more nice and helpful sometimes could better this board.

The secret to board success can be broken up into a 6 Step Process

Gather intelligence
Acquire new clothes
Notice new designers
Gain professional excited experience
Listen to our peers
Yearn for more

The G.A.N.G.L.Y process is the only way we can save our board.
>>
Agree on the being mean needlessly thing
People shit on each other constantly here, for no real reason.
You don't have to attack someone over their choice in clothes, you can tell them you don't like their fit or item of clothing without, and hopefully provide a reason why

And?

You're actually correct in this

>you talk about how fashion is about self-expression, but most of you guys are either trend hopping dick riders or else you need your hand held by /fa/ through every tiny little purchase you make

Being a Dick Hopping trend rider is the literal definition of "Fashion"

>you guys talk about how you don't dress for girls, yet so many of you complain about tfwnogf and about how girls don't appreciate your "patrician" fashion sense

Fashion is srs business :^)

Because you don't like them?

No, because they're objectively bad. Also, he probably is older, more knowledgeable and more experienced than you are. You writing out 557 "HA" doesn't exactly exude maturity.

So is all of 4chan. Granted, /fa/ is a board where you'd expect it to be more based around self improvement.

>you talk about how fashion is about self-expression, but most of you guys are either trend hopping dick riders or else you need your hand held by /fa/ through every tiny little purchase you make
Agreed. I hate trend hopping.

>you guys talk about how you don't dress for girls
Different groups entirely. People like /fa/scist, koishi and trunks arent dressing for girls, they're examples of trips who dress for themselves.
>yet so many of you complain about tfwnogf
>about how girls don't appreciate your "patrician" fashion sense
these people should probably be on MFA, but really 'tfwnogf' sort of extends throughout 4chan

>some of the few WAYWT fits that get praise are just...how do i saw...godawful
I agree to an extent

>well let me tell you it doesn't
Being here longer than most people doesn't make you better than most people

A LOT of those fits in WAYWT threads are absolutely horrible.

And a lot of people in the "WHAT DO ABOUT MY HAIR:(" threads are horrendously hideous and have horrible facial aesthetics. This board is cancer. It's rare that theres ever a good or helpful thread.
>>
>>9647621
>Different groups entirely. People like /fa/scist, koishi and trunks arent dressing for girls, they're examples of trips who dress for themselves.
fascist is gay, trunks is bisexual (and also a world famous male model), and koishi is a basement dwelling NEET virgin lesbian

not very good examples

Usually don't read "state of the board" bullshit, because it doesn't lead to anything, but I agree with you OP. /fa/ is a godawful place frequented by 18yo with no budget. I only come here for the occasional thread of a likeminded person, to find some inspo.

SZ seems to be an okay place, but I really am not into gothninja. And I'm also not into dadcore. I like streetwear/high fashion. I wish there was a better place for people like me to discuss fashion.

What the fuck? If you're going to be a little bitch about people "being mean" then don't turn around and do exactly what you just complained about. Holy shit, am I getting baited or are you a weeping pussy because /fa/ isn't your personal hugbox? Fuck off cunt.

the more and more i look at these pictures the more I think that the dyke on the left has the best fit and is the most normal looking out of the whole bunch. the rest of the boys look absolutely dreadful, compensating with their clothes for their lack of personality. no wonder the dyke is keeping her distance

That's just kind of the way things go on 4chan.
I'd say this is one of the better boards in terms of staying on topic and not being terrible people.

It could be better, but that's just very unlikely.
>>
>>9649424
look bruh, it's not 2006 anymore and there's no need to still be an insufferable cunt on 4chan. i think a large problem with this website is that it antagonizes acting like a decent person because, for some reason, people associate that with tumblr politics but OP (who is a bit misguided) is right in the fact that theres unreasonable and unnecessary aggression around here. sure, it seems harmless but it also perpetuates every reason why this board will never improve. quit trying to justify it with m-m-muh board culture and grow up; you're on a fucking cambodian moku-hanga image website.

>>9646420
Too many people here with personality disorders. I'm okay with jokes and calling a bad fit bad but all some of the people here do is try to make people feel bad about themselves. These people never post fits so I wouldn't really consider them part of the community. We need to get rid of these people and I think this place would be much better

Learn the difference between hard (constructive) critique and being an asshole. OP is talking about the former. WAYWT is godawful, and that's damn right. Every fucking angsty teen posts his cheap shit fit for attention. Why would you even give honest critique when the threads are flooded with shitty posts?

I remember what /fa/ was like back in 2011. People used to have respect for fashion brands, WAYWT was full of designer fits. Today it's full of fake and cheap shit.
