It's been a few days since my 9th year on 4chan, and my 7th year using /fa/, I figured I'd give a personal internet fashion update. When I started a bajillion years ago, I wanted to wear cool clothes, and it's taken a long time (and probably too much money) to find stuff I liked and feel like I finally do.
Here's what most of my wardrobe comprised of 3-5 years ago.
Here's what remained 2 years ago.
I wanted to see how things had changed in a relatively short period of time for me. In fitness, colloquially, there's the "bulk phase" and the "cut phase" - and I had just started the cut phase.
The last couple of years, I have pretty much exclusively have purchased Rick Owens and Undercover, with few exceptions, and it has had the desired effect. 1 in 3 pieces I own now are Undercover, almost 1 in 4 are Rick Owens. But in practice, aside from basics, these two brands absolutely dominate my day-to-day wear
Some fitpic highlights here are my earliest, this is the first fitpic of me online. I worked hard and absolutely flubbed the technicals here, but hey, I had aspirations. Not gonna lie, I spent the most on these boots I'd ever spent on anything, they were from Broken Homme. Homie then broke that record again, buying heavily discounted Zam Barrett jeans. The tees were Void The Brand over Sifr. This was the turn.
My worst, this is the worst fit I've ever put on. I wore it for a Valentine's day. Thrifted Jcrew corduroys, CDG Shirt patchwork jacket (kinda cool in and of itself), Onitsuka Tigers. I desaturated this to "fix" the white balance, my lips went grey.
>>15000153tldr; euro aspy has clothing
>>15000153My favorite (OP pic), I had another flash of the future here and put on an outfit I really liked, full of clothes I had absolutely gone bonkers to find. Like the first Zam fit, this one is a classic. This fit was the first one I saw of myself that actually gave me some self-confidence. I still use this as my profile picture on most sites. There's stuff I'd change (most common crit of swapping CPs for Ramones was right, even though I disagreed when I tried them on in SSense 20 minutes earlier), but the Rick Intarsia and Undercover Hagis made for a great silhouette.
And finally one of my latest, wearing cool shit to work.
Take a read through this narrative of pictures of my outfits through different times and stylistic genres.https://imgur.com/a/M3H9Ymj
Putting this in a tangible, trackable format (rather than in my head) makes me only want to further reduce the number of brands and pieces represented. With my target aesthetic honestly achieved, my goals for this year are to keep the total number of pieces static, if not reduce even further. I'm working with fairly little space (225-250 sqft of bedroom in a shared apartment) and don't plan on moving to a new space for at least another 15 months.I don't really intend to get much out of this thread, but figured many people might want to see what the journey has been like for someone who's been here a long time, especially given how different my wardrobe probably looks from many of yours. Some conversations lately in Discord reminded me that I needed to get this together.Best of luck in your own travels.
really good thread OP I dig it
imagine living with that face
I’m just here for all the angry replies from the H&M poors
>>15000205nigga whomst has more money than stylehit the gym you look like shit
i came into this thread to mock you but this ended up making a good read
>>15000271skinny men are hot you absolute plebdon't know what he was thinking with this haircut though >>15000190
great thread op
>>15000153Solid thread OP
>>15000417I'm skinny but the dude looks like onions.
>>15000153I dont like it but you do you boo
>>15000179Great posts Op. so happy to see there’s still rick enthusiasts here besides that Waywt guy. Question about the veja ricks, what do you think of em? When they came out I really didn’t like em, thought they overall looked pretty cheap and lazy, but as more and more fit pics with em come out they’ve really been growing on me. Would you say they’re worth it? Especially on sale. Would never pay retail for em personallyLastly, can I get an ID on that scarf?
>>15000205This. Poorfags are gonna be seething here shortly since this made page 1
>>15000458the build suits his face, if he was gymfit he'd look like the wrong head on the wrong body
>>15000175the corduroys aren't badeverything else is dreadful
So fashion really IS a cope for uglies...
all these waifs who wear rick probably annoy rick himself (while also making him rich)honestly look like the clothes are dressing him rather than the other way around. an unfortunate consequence of people diving into fashion and building their collections inorganically fastgood on OP for having the balls to post this though. a cautionary tale is still useful
>>15000153This thread is pure autism but that jacket if fucking sick m8
>>15000589This thinking is silly. The dude is underweight and nothing makes that more attractive than a healthy body
Lurk more faggot and save the blogposts for MFA. A thread died for this
>>15001031Are hockey jerseys effay outside of the arena?
>>15000203Yet here you are looking like you. Imagine that.
>>15000153>>15000157>>15000160>>15000167>>15000175>>15000179>>15000190dang man its crazy you spent so much effort and money to look like a 2014 /fa/ cringe thread
>>15001070>outside of the arenaif you're a teenage fan
>>15001352Well that sucks, basketball jerseys and football jerseys can look cool, but I’m a hockey fan :(
>>15001031he looks completely normal
>>15001376he looks like an underweight IT worker
>>15001381This.To pull off what he’s wearing in the first post he would need to be a little more masculine
>>15001384agreed. you can be skinny and look good but those clothes are not doing you any favors in that regard. they're really highlighting how lanky your body and posture are. like damn dude skinny jeans and leggings? fr? pants like the pic you referenced as your first fitpic are much better suited to your body imo.
>>15001384you really think skinny jeans belong on someone trying to look "masculine"?
>>15001471Someone trying to look masculine? NoSomeone who is masculine?Yes
I get the impression he's not dressing for what straight men think of him, if you catch my drift
>>15001480if he's dressing for gays he's missing it even harder
>>15001491Speak for yourself
I'll never be convinced these threads are real
>>15000205lol @ pic>>15000174ur best fit
>>15000174only good thing you posted. dont wear those faggot ass glasses ever again
the haircut sucks and the glasses are old manthe jacket is try hard and so are the "jeans"
>>15001494i speak for all gays
>>15001553Not to be crude but I would put my whole self so deep into this man's asshole he could start charging me rent
>>15000192what discords do you frequent?
How embarrassing. You look like an skinny attention whore jew. This board has never produced anyone who changed for the better than your normal well adjusted adult.
>>15001367no they can't. you're just an american.
>>15000153this whole cataloging of brands and styles is so autistically cringey. why am i not surprised at the final product, which honestly looks worse than >>15000174 (his earliest)>>15000179this most recent shit looks like "im dressed by stylezeigeist circa 2005", which is made worse by your physique and features looking completely incongruent with what you think you're pulling off.best thing i can say is thanks for sharing, it will make a lot of people feel better about themselves and it's a great example of /FA GONE WRONG. this level of self obsession and self delusion is comically based
>>15001070yes, I wear mine all the time.
This is what people call a fashion victimDo not let it Happen to you
>>15001478The male equivalent of fat chicks in yoga pants
In case people don't know, and obviously the OP isn't really him, this guy moderates various fashion related subreddits
>>15000153What eyeglasses frames are those? I'm a fan of round frames.
>>15004213This guy is so effay is his own mind that he probably is the OP and has no clue how cringe this is. The leddit circlejerk for this post only encourages it further
this is that ugly kike who mods ehf. hilarious someone's pretending to be him even more hilarious is his inability to dress even after being at this for almost a decade
>>15000153Is that you? You look like an absolute, AIDS infested faggot
Holy christ, OP just OOZES autismSomeone get this weirdo a hooker before he shoots up a mall
it just goes to show, never go full rick.but he looks happy and proud which is a good thing?
>>15004718Hes happy and proud, which says more about how he lives in the echo chamber of fascistly modded (and, ironically enough, woke) fashion communities. his e-friends continue to suck each other off to their shit fits while being oblivious to the general derision. Funnily enough, this guy also gets off being a snob. Always telling submitters (he's a mod) that their fits don't belong in mALeFaShIOn . Jfc this is peak insufferable fashion victim with a power complex, what a combo
>>15000157>>15000160holy fucking shit... Has there ever been something more cringe done on /fa/? Saving the tags and displaying them on a cork board.. Reminds me of that obnoxious macfag who put a shelving display up JUST TO show off the empty boxes of his apple crap.Seriously, you need to re-asses your life. Buying haute couture and high end designer stuff looks incredibly pathetic when you do shit like this.
>>15005264maybe he just wanted to keep track of it since he has it all documented i wouldn’t say he does it to show offjust chill my dude no need to criticize everything you see just be nicer
>>150001537 years of /fa/ and you still look your mother dresses you up every morning for 4th grade
>>15000157Reminds of Wil Fry’s shirt.
The attitude and pose in those photos, not the clothes, is what makes him so cringe.The moment you start thinking about your clothes is the moment the cardinal dissonance happens. It's like there is OP and his clothes, but not a clothed OP.
Thanks for the reminder that no matter how you dress if your unattractive or not fit you'll look terrible
>>15000190Did you end up getting a girlfriend?
>>15000190the actual fuck is going on in this picture
>>15000153Thats not how you be a mexican.
>>15000153Looks like he loves buttfucking
>>15005404he definitely does it to show off. look at his posts on ehf, malefashion, mfa, insta...he has this hilariously inflated air of being "artisanal gothic" or some shit like that (his words). its not hard to find - guy puts it all out there because he has an enormous ego derived mainly from his clothing purchases. lmfao he even has an imgur album of comments random people made on his appearance/clothing. real psychopath shit and the most terrifying part is he's a mod on a lot of communities.normally i just feel a little sympathetic for someone as aspy as this but he's a terrible sanctimonious mod so he deserves all the ridicule he's getting.
>>15005641Link to the imgur?

>>15006545The poor thing, looks like he got GRIDS a couple years ago and is suffering terribly.
>>15005641didn’t see the complete picture and just thought he did this to create discussion or something like thattotally my bad he’s just a looser
I discovered 4chan thanks to Project Chanology in 2008. Stuck here ever since :/I feel out of place among all the infantile faggotry but I can't quit now.

Hit the fucking gym bro for fucks sake you spend 5000$ on your outfit and you still look like a dying nerd bro your god and supreme leader rick owens even said that he respects people who work out and keep theyre body in shape. You look weak and pathetic bro I know youre probably a really great guy but you look reddit as fuck

where does he get the money from
>>15000153You look ridiculous. Pls gain some weight and workout. You aren’t even ugly. You’re just so fucking skinny
>>15006545>Actually making an imgur with positive comments about a newsstory about your own dateThat's some tenth level psychopathy, what the fuck
>>15000179cops are gonna bust in on you lookin for an active shooter
The Jew is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a scoundrel, parasite, swindler, profiteer, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him a Jew and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out.”
>>15000174only good fit in this horrfying thread
>>15000210>this is what a pentax shooter looks like nowadayschrist
Where do these grasshoppers find shekels for their expensive wardrobes?
>>15000153this shit is a rabbit hole of discovering what a freak you are, OP. still, good and interesting bread you fucking psycho
This is actually a good thread and quite interesting. You look a bit too slim, so some of the clothes look awkward on you - especially in this pic because so much skin is exposed - but you dress miles better than the average WAYWT poster on this board.Really makes me want to work out though.
What's actually interesting about this thread is that OP (not the pretend OP but the real one) has taken the effort to collect these images and construct a narrative. The fact that he has these means that he frequents reddit, buy I'm not here to judge him for that. I'm just impressed by his synthesis of source material and /fa/ culture.
>>15001348lol so true
>>15000190what the fuck were you thinking?
>>15006545what the fuck, he's straight??
cool fit especially with the exploder. but this is cringy my man. jesus its goot to have confidence but not this much. god.
>>15006545Holy shit... If there was ever a person that demonstrates how fashion is pointless if you're ugly, its this guy. Its actually comical how bad he looks, and no YSL or LV is gonna fix that. His personality is also pretty fucking pathetic.
>>15000162>japanese brands>too largeAre you fucking kidding me? I always have to size up with them, even the repro ones with more generous fitst. 6'2 ectomorph
>>15000584After seeing this thread I think I'll gladly stay poor
>>15008136Thanks a lot for this. I get body dismorphia and frustrated at the gym often and seeing this made me think I look like a god.
>>15006545Lol but this shit's actually so weird. Wonder how the better adjusted leddit mods feel about him
>>15000190You look pretty dorky dude. Like you lived on Reddit. I think these last 10 years you would have been better served bulking up. Lanky looks good sometimes but you're not tall enough to pull off the skinny tall cool look. At least get a hair cut maybe buzz it. Skinny dweebs like you tend to go heavy on sleeve tattoos (look at Justin Bieber, little bitch to looks kinda hard) So I would one, stop obsessing about labels you don't have the testosterone to pull it off yet. Lift, bulk, tattoo up. Shave that head. Lose the beard makes your chin look weak. Layer less carry yourself like the world.owes you money

HERE. and STILL look like absolute shit.And wait, no, don't you fucking dare brush off this opinion as "4chan being hateful," not, I genuinely mean it, you look like shit, you have found nothing special to your style or genuinely interesting, but have essentially copied trends made for people a decade younger than you and flaunt them like a shameless autist. You are literally the nicado avocado of /fa/.

Zach is the type of guy to save negative comments into a word document as trophies of how jarring his "original" style is.He is as original as unkle Adams original is original.I wish he would reply to comments though, I would be very interested in his take on what makes a person so apparently analytical delude themselves into thinking there's a positive progression here.He really does look like some German twat in 2007, maybe that's his goal and he is happy about it I don't get it.
>>15000190>>15000179>>15000175anon....no no no no wtf....NO.You have to DRESS your age. That shit is for Teenagers. You aren't a teenager anymore, what are you wearing. You need to build up your muscles. And wear form-fitting clothes. Your clothes are too tight.

holy cowi had stopped browsing this board because it was retardedcome back for the first time in months and i see this shiti have not laughed so genuinely at anything in a long ass time but today i finally didliterally kys OP
>>15000417You are not a man.
>>15000153Look here, your outfits are atrocious. You look like shit. You're too old to be lacking this much self-awareness. You genuinely look uncomfortable, confused and trying too hard in every photo you've uploaded. You don't have much for taste and have no idea how to dress yourself or what style is. You do you. It's not my place to tell you any of this. But someone NEEDS to tell you if this is what you've been doing for the last 7 years.
>>15020708yes the fuck i am
>>15000153Unironically your best outfits were from when you were a kid. It's like a downward spiral from the age of six...
>>15014332Nah he's just ugly
Anyone have any idea how much do his fits cost? Ora ballpark total he's spent on clothes?
>>15000153canadian jew detected
Goes to show that ugly people can never look good no matter how much they spend (unless they have actual style which OP doesnt)
