In my experience most people don't care about this shit anyway. It is literally about having a color scheme and the type of garments that emulates (even very poorly with no regard for fit) what they see in stuff like gq or gap ads.

Well I think the best reason to be here is just to see stuff and see how you like it to integrate it into your own way of doing things. If anything fa has made me realize there is no right way to dress as I once thought and it is really about doing whatever you want whether that is indulging your own whims or targeting a certain demographic to appeal too. If anything fa is too focused on self-indulgence and doesn't consider that some people like myself don't solely dress for my own enjoyment but also have different mentalities for different situations (getting bitches, getting jobs, ect)

When you wear all black plain clothing, you just blend in, if its all designer, or looks too nice, you might look like a pretentious unapproachable lolnofun slob.

Judging from the fact that you're here on /fa/4chan posting a story about a strange observation on others you made, I'd also be willing to bet you're quieter, thoughtful and more introspective, and don't know hot to be the rambunctious center of attention at parties.

It's about dressing to fit your surroundings. A friend of a friend of mine turned up for a night out with my group of friends wearing an obviously very expensive all-black fit that would get loads of love in a WAYWT thread on here, but he stuck out like a sore thumb in a bad way when the rest of us were just in jeans and tee-shirts. His fit was technically very good, but the context made him look like a try-hard richboi. It's like going to school in a designer suit; you don't look *bad* per se, but you definitely don't look *right*. Context matters.

So heres how your life's fashion has gone:
You knew absolute shit about what looked good, never could figure it out yourself.
You find /fa/, convince yourself oh thats what looks good since everyone here says so!
You wear it, dont get the results you expect.

What /fa/ thinks looks good is usually absolute shit to me. I swear to god why does everyone on this website only wear hi-top shoes? I guess everyone plays basketball. Honestly 90% of this forum is the same shit over and over again: just an image of whats fashionable slapped all over the fuckin place with minor details tweaked. You have eaten up the facade that "style" is dictated by brand. Gj falling victim to the most obvious consumer bullshit. Would you have expected any attention wearing off brand velcro shoes black jeans and a white t-shirt? Why does slapping all those brand names on boring clothes suddenly make it all the rage.
P.S. im a Physicist maybe thats why I'm the only one who figured this out.

gosling in the pic IS dressed well, though. It's not a complex style or anything, but the colours work (except the boots imo), everything fits very well, it's obviously decent quality, etc.: it's simple but effective, and half the time that's more difficult than being flashy.

At the end of the day, do you want to be dressing for attention and the approval of others, or do you want to dress in a way that you find pleasing and aesthetic? This is a serious question that all of /fa/ should think about and ask themselves honestly. Do you wear Raf and NP because you honestly like them?

I want to like you trunks, I really do, but you make it hard.

the evidence doesn't matter, it's not a direct challenge saying he's better than you.

It's just an idea, that T-shirt and jeans are basic, but work really well for some people. In terms of fitting in and looking good in the eyes of those around you, it's often better than the dark edgy style /fa/ subscribes to.

Of course, the issue is that those ninjas in 8 layers should be dressing like that because they like it, and shouldn't care that t-shirts and jeans will look better and to most people and get them further.

you just werent dressed that well op. You had good items, but the composition as a whole wasn't good. I'm not sure why you think /fa/ is pleb just because you're still learning how to dress. Girls have more cones in their eyes ( or is it rods, I cant remember) on average so they'll notice colors more quickly. If you have a sickass fit though most people will be able to recognize you have a sickass fit. Not sure why im typing something this long for a trollpost, but I did..
