Sup all, old school HB head here.

I was just curious as to what were "rules" for not looking like a fool.

Keep in mind, I'm sure we all like various styles and different pieces of styles, but what exactly is it that makes/breaks a fit?

I always had a few things in my mind that fucks mad shit up...

Too big a brand logo on something, too much of the same brand, a baseball cap with anything casual, anything casual with anything sporty, arm logos/side logos, matching too much... Especially matching your sneakers to a specific portion which is specifically there solely to match the kicks like a scarf or a cap.

What would you all agree on? Let's help make this world a better place for fashion.

Rule number 1. Be yourself. 2. Be comfortable in your own skin. 3. Dress like yourself. 4 Don't care what people think. 5. If you're trying too hard, you're trying too hard. Don't try too hard. It's easy.

Wear a basic tee, pants and shoes.

Nothing too flashy.

You'll be fine.

Solid, real-world advice.

I'd also say that it's important to focus on "form" and fit. If you want a piece of clothing from a particular band, don't buy it unless it fits you the way you want it to. If the fit is wrong then the brand/piece is irrelevant. In the end, you won't achieve the look you're going for.

Trues are wack.  70% of jordans are wack. Snap backs are wack. But who cares what I think?   I wear ugly sneakers like footscapes and sock racers.  That's why I say, just do you. If you're happy with J's, rock J's cuz you prolly won't feel comfortable in vis.  You can tell who's uncomfortable in certain clothes cuz they only imitated a trend.  Some of these kids would be more comfortable in Abercrombie but they're trying to rock been trill.  Just be yourself.

You right, thanks for the good advice, and I try to distance my self from snap backs, so those really aren't a problem.
