Ive been looking into techwear a bit
Most companies who offer this kind of clothing style are asian or expensive as hell
I'm looking for cheap techwear companies
Alternatives or styles that are simular to techwear are also very welcome
start with basics before getting the crazier pieces if you're new to techwear, you can't wear this stuff with anything that says "cotton" on the tag.
good cheap techwear basics:
uniqlo airism - tee's, underwear
fiveultimate - shorts
darn tough - socks
icebreaker - merino tees, merino leggings, hoodies
patagonia - houdini windbreaker
$10 at thrift store.
If i did fuck up it's a cheap mistake
>Rick Owens is overpriced just like Nike shit
>"But it's handmade with the best frabrics and is totally worth $500 for a shirt"
>And how much does it cost to produce the shirt?
If you believe h&m and uniqlo prices are justifiable thats probably a start. If anything they're cheap cz production cost are pushed down low and a lot of their workers are doing minimum wage.
Quite a few designer brands (not all mind you) have their production cost bumped up for paying substantially more for labour, be it in first world countries or acceptable wages in others (i.e. not peanuts).
Then you get the fabric and materials used, where they're made, which more often than not is different from mall brands. 100% wool pants from say schneider is not going to be the same with 100% wool pants from uniqlo +j. a lot of designers use really niche fabrics.
And then you have the design aspect. Companies like zara and and asos get a bad rep for copy pasting designs (essentially, plagiarizing) while some designer items are designed with a conceptual idea in mind all the way till its realized. That also takes time. Time = money.
Thats just a part of it, i'm sure there's more i havent touched on. And quite a few designer brands imo purely ride on the fact that they're designer and their reputation throughout the years (LV, burberry, gucci, the like), nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day they're a business and if people buy their stuff, what reason would you have to cut down prices?
>how much does it cost to produce the tatoo?
price of ink, needles and ink caps, $10-20 tops
>then why do people pay $1,000+ for tattoos?
for skill the artist has and time he spends to make it
then add the markup for the brand name, and you got an answer for clothing aswell

Hey /fa/. I'm a guy trying to achieve minimalist's style through a monochrome color palette what stores should i shop to achieve this look?
Why? seriously why be so minimalist. Minimalism is the most unapproachable style. It doesn't tell you anything about the person, its so plain. Minimalism is designed to not be distracting and too eye catching but something orderly and focus orientated. Express yourself damn it. Fashion is an art right?
with that being said the store doesn't really matter. No matter what someone wears if they dont wear it with confidence i assume its low quality trash.
>people pay insane amounts of money for gosha tees
>buy a 1:1 rep from taobao
>how to buy from taobao?
>Where to find good reps?
Post your unpopular opinion so that /fa/ screams at you with all their /thinspo/ might!
>Rick Owens Sneakers
They are disgusting and clumsy looking; they are repulsive and unelegant, like their wearers. Pic related
The main issue with Rick, especially here, is that people who can't really afford it try to pull off the look
So you end up with this gawky teenager wearing a single Rick piece along with a bunch of stuff he got at the mall, and he's short and has a bad body and everything just feels bad
Got a 1620 on my SAT. Feel like buying myself some Rick as an early birthday gift to myself and as celebration. Should I?
> Inb4 this faggot ordered from Brother's Cut
I'm pretty new to this and had no idea what I was getting. I have two of these, one in white and one in brown. They're uncomfortable, the material is shit, I can only wear them with the sleeves pushed up to my elbows, and I constantly have to use a pill shaver to keep them looking decent.
That being said, out of everything I own, those two jackets have elicited more compliments than anything else. I don't have the money to order 400+ dollar designer jackets, but maybe you anons can direct me towards something in a similar style that isn't shit-tier, even if it's just a brand or retailer.

what's your budget?
zara makes cheap shit like that. h&m does too in slightly higher quality.
don't spend any less than $500 on a leather jacket new. you can find used options in your budget but I'm not going to tell you any names.
also it's pretty tasteless trash. are you sure you're not a hick getting hick compliments?
What is le most effay type of profile?

I'm moving into comfort-core type clothing gradually. A lot of you guys are really /fa/ conscious and I thought you could help me find more comfort-core type clothing. I saw a thread where they had Asian designer type lounge-wear.. Just looking for some help you guys. Where can I find some and where can I see nice outfits of it. Post some too if you want too!
Why the fuck is /fa/ so racist? No traditional "lol"s or "haha"s, I really want the explanation. I can't read a SINGLE thread without seeing these people just destroying their fellow human-being because you don't look the same.

I have my cousin's wedding coming up in a few weeks and I've decided to ditch my old shitty suit for a new one. The last one was dark grey, and I've settled on a black suit this time around.
Any tips and tricks to look /fa/ as possible? What color shirts and ties can I wear with a black suit? I have a black tie with a very dark grey floral pattern on it, but I'm willing to buy a new one if it doesn't fit.
Also, what color watches go with black suits? Any tips on the shoes? Any advice is appreciated.
Make sure sleeves end 3/4" before wrist when relaxed. Get a slim fit tailoring. Make sure shoulders end where your shoulders end. Get it a little shorter than traditional. Pants should be no break or very little break.
don't get black
it's going to look like shit unless it's fucking on point and fits you like it was bespoke
if you insist, then your best bet is a white shirt, black shoes
get a navy suit instead

Should I go with a faded dark grey jacket, or a clean black one?
my wardrobe is mostly monochrome/edgy. I feel black is more versatile but I already have a couple of black jackets
