ITT: you teach me how to not be a fuccboi
here's the thing, I'm losing weight fast and I'll finally be able to dress like I've always wanted. but my prefered aesthetic has always been what would now be described as "street goth" (even though it was like that for years, before "street goth" was a thing.) (memechrome, black jeans, bombers, parkas, hoodies, layers, long outers)
so now I'm lurkin and trying to learn as much as I can about /fa/, and I see that "street goth" is generally frowned upon here. what I ask for is pieces of advice on how to reach a similar aesthetic without being a fuccboi.
please let's have a serious thread

nice job man, happy for you.
Key thing about fashion is dress how you want to dress and don't give a shit about what others think, coming to /fa/ for fit advice (eg across the shoulders, body length) rather than style advice works the best. Everyone will give you hell for dressing how you dress unless it fits perfectly into the hivemind way of looking OR is actually exceptionally good. But every once and a while someone will actually point you in the right direction.
If you want to wear all black its about silhouette and fabric/texture. No one gives a shit about your brands, no one gives a shit about graphic prints. All black with a decent silhouette will set you apart from all the twats trying to out brand each other. I advise that you spend more money on less clothes, than the same amount on a lot of clothes. Go for high quality basics then buy whatever else you want from there. If you can't afford the higher end shit dont worry about shopping at established highstreet brands like AA/UO/Uniqlo/H&M as usually they're low price, and alright quality. DONT buy the craptier shit emulating high fashion from fast fashion brands like ASOS/Zara cus then you'll look like a fuccboi.
you'll look like a fuccboi if you look like everyone else, look like you're trying to look wealthy without the money, wear expensive garments whilst being uninformed, caring what other peple think.
Fuccboi tier changes depending on what the person judging you thinks like. But well fitting clothes will always look good, keep that as a priority
>No one gives a shit about your brands
>Spend more money on less clothes
Agreed with most of the rest though - a good all black fit relies heavily on the textures and silhouette.
Not much and I'm not the type to spend excessive amounts of money on clothes as a matter of principle, but if the quality justifies it then I might.
Let's say mid-tier like Adidas/Nike/H&M/Zara completed with generic brands and the occasional thrift-store/ebay finds.
Thank you kind anon.
Got any inspo m8?
>I'm losing weight fast and I'll finally be able to dress like I've always wanted
this part. said wardrobe doesn't exist yet.
So is white shoes with an all-black fit ok? I honestly can't figure it out. What about all-black fit but white t-shirt?
Well then by definition it wouldn't be an all-black fit, but it works fine. I would suggest not restricting yourself to all black all of the time. Lurk more and find inspo that you like and could see yourself wearing
Not op but, what would you recommend buying? I always thought zara was good...I want to start dressing like this but, honestly I don't know where to start and I don't have thousands of dollars to drop on drkshdw
Heres some good inspo albums
ty for inspo
>I always thought zara was good
same. op here.
have this and can't wait to be slim enough to wear it ;_;
fair enough, but what about a nice scarf? depending on the rest of the fit of course
I do like those shorts tbh but I think I'd only wear them in the gym and on my way back (where it's obvious I'm coming from gym because of the gym bag) and fucking around the neighbourhood. wearing stuff like that at the mall for example would be just retarded.
some examples or inspo would be awesome if you have the time/patience
I would say Zara is especially bad for what you're going for (goofninja) because when everything is black, attention is drawn more towards the texture and the silhouette - both of which are degraded by the poor quality of the brand.
you're welcome, hope some of it helped.
zara aren't too bad from a clothing point of view but they're basically mainstream knockoffs, they blatantly steal the best selling designs from well known designers seasons and remake them with shitty materials and construction with quick turn around. if you want to look like you own expensive clothes go shop at zara, shit falls apart literally in the wash.
I would avoid zara at all costs if im honest. They're a VERY smart brand who have established themselves as a top-end clothing store but in reality are probably worse than H&M.
Uniqlo and AA are actually alright as far as I know. Entry tier higher shit from like voidthebrand (not sure about their newer stuff) and MAYBE aydn, then drkshdw/t by wang and second hand mainline rick (can get a tee easily for £40-60 recent seasons) - not shopped anything recently so wouldnt really know, acne are easy to go to for jeans, uniqlo jeans are decent if you're not willing to fork out a lot for a "meme" brand but honestly all the meme brands are decent.
yup. do you ever wear the hood though? and if so how? I mean, do you pull it all the way? I usually wear a hood just over halfway through. but this one doesn't seem to look 'right' either way.
this stuff only looks good if you're tall. but it doesnt look that great to be honest either way, you cant really use it as a layering piece unless you have a tall coat, and it makes your proportions look dumb. also the material feels like a shit tea towel.
>I have that hoodie, It's comfy as fuck
how the fuck am i meant to know that you're talking about some other hoodie other than THAT hoodie, the one in the picture, the zara one, good one you fuccboi.
OP you dont want to look like this guy
Yeah but, visually will it be the same as a uniqlo black and white tees. I mean for $180 I can get 4 black and white tees. For the same price at uniqlo I can get like 10. The money I save can go towards something better I feel. Also I have two pairs of rafdidas...should I try to work them into a chromewave wardrobe or sell them?
Anyone got shoe reccomendations? I want white/black raf straps but, I can't find them anywhere for non rape.
>disgusted at the thought of owning a zara to the point of getting aggressive
>owns black scale
you're a fucking joke
Remember anon, it's about how it feels to you. You could buy a black Gildan tee and be satisfied, or you could buy a black RC tee and be satisfied.
good street goth shoes could be:
>dominantly black trainers
>dominantly black Nike Dunk (can either be good or really bad in some fits)
