I was pretty surprised at the selection in Mainland. I went in with the intent of buying new grip tape, but I ended up forgetting and walkin' out with those shoes. They also have a huge selection of stussy + diamond if you're into that shit. Oh, and they have like 2-3 glass cases with Taka Hayashi Vans, Jordans, Sb's, etc.

really? jesus christ, i guess this forum lives up to the name.
those shoes look fucking awful, almost as bad as red gucci loafers hahaha..


how is prada more hypebeast than supreme? lol. i'm not gonna rag on you cuz u put ur shit together well and i like 95% of your fits, but honestly everyone has their own taste. i'm not a guy who loves covering yourself in supreme and that makes you dress well. i think wearing a shirt with a little red box on it with supreme written in it is pretty plain and the same as 95% of this forum. but u like that and i'm not gonna hate on u for that cuz thats what u like and thats what u wear. i like prada's. i don't own any but i think they are dope. it's just a differen't form of fashion than what maybe most people on this forum can't relate to or see as their fashion, but if you rock it well, like almost any other piece, it can be dope.

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?

You guys are thinking about this too much.

THOSE PRADA SHOES ARE UGLY

that is all we are talking about. not how much brands cost or who wears what or what is style. style is not ugly. those shoes are ugly.
end convo

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.
