dont worry twiggy that kid has been posting on 5th d too much and thinks he's got some kind of right to talk shit. He's been drinking that haterade except he hasn't earned it. He was wearing spice girls t-shirts like 2 months ago with pinrolled BDUs and member's only jackets.

Now he's got a full closet of supreme, posts on 5th D and thinks his regurgitated hate from 5th D is actually his opinion. Doesn't realize that he's just a brainwashed troll.

In the end it doesn't really matter what you wear as long as you have the swagger to wear it. In other words, especially with street and high fashion it's not what you wear but how you wear it. I'd give props to someone wearing pradas dior denim and YSL tee just like that homie from like 2 years ago that posted on here, cause he made it look dope.


Are you referring to Stack Bundles????

The only problem with wearing YSL, dior jeans, and prada shoes is that its the epitome of an ASSHOLE'S attire. Not trying to say the shit is bad or not, but these brands market themselves to the wealthy. Its for people who want the prestige of knowing they bought something unique and somewhat unattainable to the mass consumer when in reality they're just being narcissitic clowns.

The rule of thumb people should follow when going out in public is:

Wear shit for the certain situation, and nothing more.

That's the point of wearing clothes: expression and looking good.

Fashion to that extent refers to conspicuous consumption, in which people who wear such clothing is doing nothing wrong. What's wrong with showing off what you wear?

It doesn't necessarily have to be narcissistic. People who post their pick-ups and fits do so to show off their shit and so people can ogle at them/their possessions and offer them praise.

You are right, but "expression and looking good" can be done so in a manner of spending $50 bucks. You are buying hyped up self-esteem approval that has been accepted into our society as hip and the peak of coolness. What do you think all of the inspirations and re-hashes of clothes and shoes come from? Cheap ass classics that noone gave a shit about before. From Converse, Vans, military attire,etc.

There's nothing wrong with giving in to temptation of spending an extra $20 bucks or so over a Polo shirt versus an Old Navy, but atleast have the decentcy to acknowledge that you are a contributor to the whole scheme and into this facade.

Look what I put in bold, you said it best. Isn't that not what a narcissist embodies?

we all know it can be done by spending 50 bucks. but who really cares about how much you spend on what you wear? if it looks good and you carry yourself right than what is wrong with someone wearing that shit if they like it? expensive vs. inexpensive doesn't matter at all. it's about looking good and wearing what you want vs. looking terrible and wearing shit because other people tell you too or cuz ur tryin to fit it.

Re-read what you typed and get at me. Logic would dictate that if you can look good with say:

A=shirt B=pants C=more expensive shirt D=more expensive pants

and with your definition A+B=C+D

then assuming a=1 and b=1 and c=2 and d=2

1+1=2 or a+b

and

2+2=4 or c+d

2 does not equal 4, infact 2<4

Making it both asisine to buy something more expensive and the fact that it defeats the laws of arithmetic

I rest my case.

A 5 year old white kid doing "the worm" for spare change near the subways in nyc has money. Unless money is an abstract thought to you, why bother.

lol i'm just playin man. but fashion is an expensive game. i'm not saying you can't put together a clean outfit with some chucks, levi's, and a white vneck, but most people on this site are wiling to spend a good chunk of their cash on clothes. whether it's something like supreme or diamond or any streetwear for that matter, or a YSL tee or prada's or whatnot. obviously one is on another level of expense than the other, but nevertheless it's expensive. alot of this board is willing to spend 400 bucks on visvims even. and whats wrong with that if it's what you want to spend your money on? u might consider it dumb but fact is that money is meant to be spent, and if u've saved up, paid your bills, and you got extra cash, whats wrong with spending money on something that you really like yet is expensive.
Jan 29, 2009 @ 01:16
The only way I can rebuttal that is for people to become aware that:

For every $400 dollar pair of Visvims you buy, know that with that money you can feed 400 anorexic, starving kids in an underdeveloped country for a day.

Word to ya moutha'
