Finally a goth thread, I've had a question I've been wanting to ask for a while. How does one pull off a subtle casual goth aesthetic? I like aspects of goth fashion but I find most of it to be a bit over the top (for me at least). I'm thinking black boots, dark jeans or pants, and I'm not sure on the top, but perhaps a mix of black and white shirts, and sometimes a leather jacket (maybe /comfy/ sweaters?) My hair is semi long atm so I'm good on that front. Anybody know where to get good band shirts? Bonus points for white ones to add contrast, I don't want to fall victim to the all black meme. Is this the all black meme? Thanks

get some platform boots, old jeans either skinny straight or straight. dye them black and distress them a tad bit. there are some cool red and white joy devision shirts around, but tie dye also works well. subtle guyliner and sorta messy sex hair pulls it off quite well. go to some goth clubs for some inspo.

Gothics are pathetic tho. Everyone is dealing with existentialism and and crysis. Acting like you are some special snowflake outwards only makes you that uch more of a teenage larper. This is exclusively sexual and should be kept to their kin. Only wearing a style is like wearing a faux skin, nobody will buy your shit but the most vapid losers (the same people like you). Either way, its nice to look at but reserved to children and fetishists and both can go fuck themselves. Have some gothic accessoires, mentality or other elements but going full goth is idiotic have some standards.

Late to the party, but any nice black boots will fit the bill. Something like pic related (link below)

Occult themed jewelry is always a nice touch. Amazon links also below, two examples in pic. I personally have a St. Peter's cross necklace and cuff links, with pentacle/baphomet sigil rings.

The look I think you are going for is what's known as "corp goth." Black slacks, black boots/dress shoes, black vest, black tie/pocket square.

You can mix and match items from an outfit like that for casual as well. The nice thing about the goth look is that as long as you're wearing black, you'll mostly fit in at any goth club, even if it doesn't scream goth while on the street. I recommend eye-liner and eye shadow on top of a very light foundation, with black lipstick. If you have a beard, blend the foundation out before your beard line and do not use lipstick. Neatly trim all facial hair.

Mix and match textures, since you're primarily working with only one color. Other good options for outfits are anything you would traditionally think of as punk, but maxed out with black. Black jeans or slacks with a black denim or leather jacket, fishnets are usually good. Metallic studs, chains, pins, patches, all of it will work. Long sleeve tees, sweaters, anything works.

Find a style you like, go to thrift stores, search for deals on etsy, ebay and amazon. Personally I love amazon for more generic things, you don't need to go to alt or "goth stores" what you'll get there are overpriced and kitschy. Find some cheap black clothing, and DIY it into something you like.

The scene is far from dead, but also far to what it was in the 80's-90's. Lots of clubs still exist that do dedicated goth/industrial nights.
I would recommend checking the music out as well. Check out the post-punk movement and goth rock. Some good bands to start with (old and new) are:

Souixsie and the Banshees
The Smiths
Clan of Xymox
Soviet Soviet
New Order
Depeche Mode
The Cure
She Wants Revenge
The Sisters of Mercy
Switchblade Symphony

See if you can find local goth nights, check them out. From my experience people in the goth culture tend to be welcoming, nice, and charming people (though it does have it's share of elitists.)

I just put albums on and listen to them all the way through. I grew up aware of the goth fashion but no so much the musical style so when I first heard Bauhaus I just threw them in with similar sounding bands as "80s rock".

Well, the truth is there are less goths today because the scene is more or less obsolete

i've been the biggest fan of goth and darkwave since a teenager, but don't dress outlandishly goth. there are so few trad-goth clubs or groups or bands here, and i might wear some dark clothes but that's in. In my experience the only ones making it visibly obvious theyre into goth are the old-school goths who did it in the 80s and 90s, or the poseurs who think """goth""" fashion is just another trend from tumblr/insta to hop on.

TLDR you need to go to goth shows to meet other genuine people and not always expect them to dress like Siouxsie Sioux or Robert Smith

Ha nice try, I don't post pictures of myself online. But I'm not an instathot, I really enjoy goth music. I don't like chokers and I tend to wear toned-down tradgoth stuff, mainly band shirts, skinny black jeans, pikes, dark makeup, and I tease my hair sometimes. Pic related is my ideal but I'm not that pretty.

That's understandably, but the look is attractive and it's what I like. I don't mind a very toned-down version of it, like just wearing normal stuff in black basically. I think the music and the general aesthetic and approach to life is what's important, but I'm also not attracted to normie fashion much.

I wish there was a better way to meet goth people here, /soc/ is very degenerate and there's pretty much no goths there anyway.

Toned down goth is basically my wardrobe, i just can't be bothered with the hair and makeup especially as a male. i guess it's what /fa/ tends to call "post-punk fashion" as little sense as that makes. Oddly enough despite the modern image of goth guys being 1987-era robert smith most of the early darkwave bands dressed quite subtlely which is my main inspiration. black jeans, black boots or dress shoes, dark patterned button-downs, t-shirts, leather jacket or black harrington etc

Are goths so hung up about columbine stereotyping goths and the scene becoming mainstream that they’ll call anyone a poser because they fear the subculture will be associated with people they don’t like?

What I find weird about that is that I’ve seen goths online and online goth clothing stores be hybristophiliacs and goths seem to love the obscure.

>> No.13696263

Really depends on what style of goth you are into. Most of the pics here are trad goth, that 80's look but to be honest, most of the pics here are from the 80's. Trads are rare in normal everyday life and you would really stand out.

Subtle is best. Black pants with boots, docs, even palladiums, black shirt, long sleeves black t shirt, heavy knit sweater.

You could go for black trousers/white shirt and mix it with boots instead of dress shoes. To most people you'll look pretty regular, even smart but if you were at some goth place you'd still be part of it.

This. Industrial/trad is really part of the goth scene. It's like saying "I am cyber, I am not goth" when in reality cyber is also part of the goth scene. The only exception would be ravers.

They were at the time, Columbine isn't on the mind of most people now, young people don;t even know about it most times.

>hybristophiliacs and goths seem to love the obscure

The goth scene has always attracted some really weird people, not necessarily because they were into goth or even liked it but because of the goth subculture being so welcoming it was/is the only scene to accept them.

Lots of goths can be elitist and snobbish though the same exists for a lot of scenes in music desu. As long as newbies (babybats) are honest they are new then it's fine.

Just don't be 18 thinking you are "LoRd_Of_Pain666" that's a big no.

Think about who he was and the context of the song. Read up on what his early life was like. It sounds like rejection of his Southern Baptist upbringing with which he felt racism, among other things, was inseperably tied, at least when it came to his family.

Burning crosses on a nigger's lawn
Burning dollars
What's a house without a home?
Dance in your white sheet glory
Dance in your passion

And then the chorus evokes a seamy creeping sense of corruption which he can't help but feel is a part of him.
