When everyone starts dressing like this again, I'll come back. I'm not saying I do now or that everyone doesn't dress well anymore, nothing like that, but I loved these old styles. They were like hood elegant/tactical, all around nice and relaxing wear.

Brands don't even make these styles anymore, they make flower collar shirts and like stupid designs that appeal to French women and Indie kids, sucks.

That dude MLI/Milspex, I remember having an arguement with him about his style, he was saying he was dressing like a "90's teen Japanese streetwear/hip hop head," but I was insisting that THEY dress like old school New York cats with the overly baggy but thin fits, not the hood rats but the Polo type heads and so forth.

Anyways, nice memories, a lot of the legends meetups pics, I miss those days, miss the people too.

See the point i made kinda relates to this, the thread is looking back at how people used to dress and basically i was thinking well these fits are still pretty good, they can still be worn today. Yet couple guys took that as me following fashion or something...

Regarding these slightly older fits to newer fits i dunno if one is better, cos when people dress well it still looks good. Problem is people seem oddly obsessed with brand names these days, opting to wear famous brands to look good instead of actually thinking about what theyre wearing and how it all looks

Most of the fits being posted in this thread are from the same few people: option, medic, soundbomber, ron, etc.

WDYWT was never stacked with good fits, there were just a few guys who were really consistent and the whole forum could appreciate what they were wearing, and those are the fits you end up seeing posted in threads like this.

Yeah obviously. But alot of them were consistent posters and it made wdywt much better regardless if it was the same people.

This post is hidden due to user account is no longer active or improper post content.

... No. WDYWT was simply better as a whole a few years back. It was filled with much older cats who were genuinely interested in the culture and knew what they were doing rather than how it is now where the majority of these fuckboys poppin' up are only doing it 'cause it's trendy to know what Supreme is right now. The only reason the same few people keep showing up in this thread is because they had consistently fire fits, but there were plenty of regular posters who had clean fits as well. If you try and tell me you can say the same about the current state the WDYWT thread is in, you're lying to yourself.

By no means am I one of the older users, but I would say the average age of the regular HB member has gone down significantly, thus lowering the quality. People asking mayimbe181 what he does and shit because he can wear Supreme head-to-toe? Are you kidding me? He's a grown-ass man with a job, of course he can buy a few more things than you can on the weekly allowance your parents give you. Ask questions like that to people like i2onnel who are actually ballin' out, there's nothing expensive about Supreme unless you're under the age of 18.

There used to be legitimate discussions with heavy traffic and activity on this forum, whereas now it's just a bunch of kids that don't even understand what a troll is, but insist on calling themselves one. These boards are dead, and trying to pass it off like it isn't by showing the active users in the past hour on the index to make it look like there's still a ton of users on isn't going to work.

Yeah, but it's just the nature of things. When you have a forum that glorifies fits that are Supreme head-to-toe, then people who are coming here to learn how to dress are going to move in that direction. Looking back, I can name 4 or 5 people right off the top of my head that let HB dress them, because the shit they were posting was getting flamed all to hell. Very little originality left.

I think it's worthy to note that Supreme has always been a love-hate relationship with this site.

Supreme was elite shit back in '04-'06 due to the SB hype and geographical exclusiveness, then '07 came and Supreme started really trending as far as clothes went, then the "+++" era brought nothing but hatred for the people who weren't wearing it before then, nowadays OF & Tumblr have completely bastardized the brand.

I swear I die a little inside when I see 14 yr olds in their Golf Wangs and Supreme 5 panels. Everything I love has been ruined by the ignorant.
