If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I'm just curious how everybody here dresses day to day? What is your look/style? What is your ideal look/style or how would you dress if you had unlimited money?
My daily casual:
Shoes: Charcoal Canvas Oxfords, Navy Sperry's laceless stripers, or Aldo Leather Boots
Socks: Black generic cotton
Pants: Levis 511s or 514s in gray, black, or dark indigo
Shirt: Solid color or striped v or crewneck
Glasses: Ray Ban-5095 black
Sunglasses: Ray Ban-2132 turtleshell
Watch: Skagen 809XLTBBin black
Jacket: Oak NYC black French Military Jacket or J-crew Peacoat
If i had the cash I would go for the whole Chronicles of Never look:
too bad those outfits would probably run close to 3 grand...
So how about you guys?
Loose fit jeans (not baggy, just comfortable).
black graphic T or dark colored polo type shirt. Or just a plain black T shirt (without the pocket. I hate those)
socks with holes in them. Running shoes or my old oily work boots.
I approve of this post.
Crocs (Don't look at me like that!)
Godzilla T-Shirt (No I'm not kidding)
Dark Blue Beanie
Godzilla T-Shirt = Bawse!
I clicked this thinking it would be interesting (I am a girl, after all) but as soon as I started reading I immediately felt like I was reading the most boring possible portion of a modern update of American Psycho...
As for your dream outfit, I dont see what you're talking about...mind you, only the first image is showing up for me. I have no doubt that you could pay 3G for an outfit, but I also know that a month of avid thrift store shopping would yeild the same results for probably $30...
ummm... I'm really not sure what you were expecting.
It's called what are you wearing and we are talking about what we are wearing.
as for thrift shopping...
It's a hypothetical, all the money in the world, type option. I have neither the means or the will to spend several thousand dollars on a single casual outfit. However, if I did then I would be on that shit immediately.
Half of the reason I like Chronicles is their materials, fit, and colors, all of which are extremely modern and none of which you will be likely to find at a thrift store.
Im sorry that I see nothing in particular that is unusual or special about the fabrics, cuts, or fit of these clothes. Perhaps I'd have to see them in person to appreciate them. As it is, it just looks like jeans, leather, and suede...oatmeal and black are rampant in thrift stores, I promise. The cuts are nothing very special save for the unfortunate scarf. If you buy skinny jeans two sizes too big, you'll have the same pants.
Im not putting it down, it is a very nice look (though I admit, I'm not a fan of the scarf) and I think it would be nice to wear. I'm just saying that it's not as unobtainable as you seem to think it is. You can live your dream.
I am not saying that replicating the look for cheaper is impossible, I'm just saying that if I had unlimited cash I would just buy the real thing.
My daily casual:
Shoes: Police style boots or black running shoes
Socks: White cotton
Belt: Black EMT heavy duty utility belt
Pants: Jeans... uh whatever feels comfortable (blue, dark blue, slightly darker blue,)
Shirt: Regular T-shirt (red, dark blue, black, gray, tan) Polo shit (white, red, green) Flannel shirt (red/black combo)
Glasses: Rectangle shaped ones...
Sunglasses: Whatever looks good
Watch: Somewhat gawdy silver watch with a large face
Jacket: Either brown hoodie or olive military jacket.
Meh, gets the job done.
