re: SL Style Thread

It's certainly a regional thing. There's almost nobody who wears AF1s at my college. About 50% of the student body wears some type of sandal year round.

I'm not trying to dis you or anything, I'm hardly a fashion snob nor a snazzy dresser, I really just don't understand (and I'd like to).
I just guess it's always been a hobby/passion/obsession? I don't know....I never think about it. I've just always been interested in them from early on. As a kid I had all the Jordans and wish I never outgrew or trashed them. Nowadays I just buy whatever I decide to buy. Not much thinking involved...I mean how hard is it to throw on a white/black t shirt a pair of shorts and whatever pair you decide to put on that day. Sure I dress up.....but I don't spend 18 hours a day at a formal dinner where I need slacks and a pair of dress shoes. I'm 26 fwiw....one thing I do not like is a black shoe haha......just never liked them for some reason.

I don't post in these threads.....but some of you can't seem to fathom an outfit with Nike/Jordans so I'll help. Everyone's different.....I can't possibly see myself putting on these brown casual shoes I see people with on everyday.

re: SL Style Thread

idk how it's hard to understand. people view the jordan brand as expensive not ghetto. if you have some purple and w/e jordans with a purple shirt it shows you have money and care about your image (even if it's not true. same could be said for watches+cars,etc). it's assumed that they have a wide shoe collection to match whatever else they wear because he's not going to wear purple outfits everyday.

i've never bought a pair of jordans because i actually don't like many of the styles but others pull them off. then again i live in california so maybe everything is different in missouri or w/e

i'm pretty sure i'm going to transfer to an out of state school in the future. looking forward to meeting these sandal+DC shoe colleges. seems like bar isn't set very high to get good looking white girls

LOL at Jordans being expensive and LOL at wearing Jordans as a status symbol. If you like them thats cool but they are just shoes.

I prefer shoes that are easy to put on and take off. In fact, I can't stand shoes that take over 10 seconds to put on.

But watches and cars can cost 100k+. Shoes cost $100.

re: SL Style Thread

So I got home and threw on my brand new green SJ Sharks shirt pictured above (size: L) with the black hoodie I received from Old Navy a few days ago (size: LT) before going to a friend's apartment to drink with a small group of people. Two people asked me if I'd lost weight. I guess wearing better-fitting clothing is good?

How tall are you and how much do you weigh? You might be able to wear M (I know you are like 7ft tall).

I'm not really feeling the buckle but everything else looks good. Every guy should at least try boots/shoes that are a level above sneakers imo. I just bought a pair of these:




brogues by Loake

I like the brogues/denim combination. BROWN BROWN BROWN
These ones are nice.

re: SL Style Thread

I'm looking to buy a smart-ish type of shoe that isn't a dress show. Narrowed it down to these two and can't decide. Basically, I can't see me wearing the boat show tooooo often and the trainers, although being smarter than normal, are *still* trainers...

SuperFuture yes, StyleForum not so much. I tend to use StyleForum as a place to spend a lot of money and not much else

So that's 2-2.

First shoe to 5 takes it.

Yeah, the intention is to wear them with a pair of smart jeans.

I'd insta-wear dress shoes with suit trousers.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with overdressing IMO.

People that hate on others for looking decent are just pissed they suck at dressing.
