Beard "culture" (I like beards well enough, but the stupid "hurr durr I like bacon and craft beer, you're not a real man unless you look like Santa Claus" attitude is annoying as hell)
Beard culture is literally cancer.
>tfw grew a short beard once
>tfw started getting bombarded with ebic beard maymays from some of my bearded friends
>tfw shaved beard just so I'd stop getting pelted with Art of Manliness articles and jokes about how clean-shaven men are all faggots
I mean I knew it was a thing but I thought I could grow a beard and avoid the dumb secret-club circlejerk attitude that came with it. Oh well.
All over print Egyptian shirts, leather pants, overly buckled shoes.
these and pretty much every other pair of shoes rick owens makes. except for the Achilles low but I can't remember if those were done by him or not.
Don't be presumptuous.
I'm not a fan of any Rick footwear other than short tongue Geobaskets, high and low-top Ramones, and creeper boots.
Your post is bait because you think Rick Owens has anything to do with Common Projects.
top kek I know what they are I just wasn't sure if Rick Owens was relevant to them. Get over yourself. I'm sorry you take pride in wasting all of your time on the most arrogant board on 4chan. I'm sure all the true oldfags are impressed with your actions.
/lit/'s actually pretty cool if you can look past the Infinite Jest fanboys.
Almost every board has some annoying forced meme that deters some people, come to think about it.
>/lit/: Thomas Pynchon and possibly Tao Lin
>/fa/: Rick Owens
>/mu/: Death Grips and Neutral Meme Hotel
>/k/: slavshit in general
Beards unless you actually look semi-decent with one and aren't just hopping on the bandwagon
Glad I'm not the only who's sick of those "hurr durr I'm reel man cuz I has a beard aand sailor tats and eat meats"
Remember being in the navy and going to hipster ghettos on liberty and most bars and coffee-shops were packed wall to wall with these try-hards.
Remember a former 2nd class I used to chill with on watches and got into that "real man" beard fad and turned into a total arrogant douche when he got out.
Kinda weird considering the old "hipster" stereotype was an anti-gun liberal and vegan. I guess it's their race for "non-conformity" and yet they're still gonna get called "hipsters" regardless.
And why bacon? Is it because of that annoying meme from years ago? Or is it because "hurr durr bacon is manly meat for breakfus"?
>And why bacon? Is it because of that annoying meme from years ago? Or is it because "hurr durr bacon is manly meat for breakfus"?
I think it's a little of Column A, a little of Column B
Some other guy here. I personally wouldn't buy memebaskets even if i had the money and don't support people who fall for the meme trend but to blurt out that these shoes are ugly is just an exaggeration. I'm not a fan of them but I appreciate their aesthetics.
I mean if you genuinely like his stuff then good on ya, personally it's not my thing. My beef is with the people on /lit/ who post ten threads a day about Pynchon/DFW where they basically sit in a circle and give each other tuggies and congratulate themselves on being erudite patricians because they read Pynchon or DFW and "got" it.
>Kinda weird considering the old "hipster" stereotype was an anti-gun liberal and vegan.
The problem is that "hipster" doesn't really mean anything.
These cartoons are pretty funny, tho
I haven't read either yet, just felt like shitposting. But you are right, /lit/ tends to be elitist sometimes and defends their "essential" literature. However, every board seems to do that and while /lit/ is pretentious sometimes, I'd argue it is one of the least retarded boards we have and actually has lots of intelligent discussion
I disagree. Pleated pants are rad and can provide really interesting silhouettes a la Yohji or Sruli. They also make for super comfy pants. I used to hate pleats and I still think they suck on vanilla dress pants, but now owning some more interesting styles has led me to appreciate the humble pleat.
>However, every board seems to do that and while /lit/ is pretentious sometimes, I'd argue it is one of the least retarded boards we have and actually has lots of intelligent discussion
I agree, and what's more the people who shitpost and post about meme books represent a comparatively small portion of the board's total population, and they contain themselves reasonably well.
>tfw I know a guy who makes furniture
>tfw he hates hipsters with a passion
>tfw his son has become the stereotypical bearded beatnik incarnate
>tfw hes told his son to his face that he looks like a "gay Russian sailor who fought in the civil war"
>tfw his son came out a few weeks later
i think a lot of guys grow the beard out to maybe persuade unknowing civilians into thinking they were operators and did some cool shit. it used to be you see a guy on base with tattoos and a beard and immediately knew spec war. now it's a toss up between navy seal or hipster.
Only women should wear flip flops.
Beards must fucking go if you aren't an elderly person.
Fuck ponytails and other kinds of 'manbuns' that white guys.
Fuck weird coloured hair.
Also I'm fucking sick of bottle blondes.
>Only women should wear flip flops.
No one should wear them outside of a shower
>Beards must fucking go if you aren't an elderly person.
Eh, I disagree. If you genuinely look good in one and aren't just following trends then I say rock on.
>Fuck ponytails and other kinds of 'manbuns' that white guys.
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
>Fuck weird coloured hair.
>Also I'm fucking sick of bottle blondes.
Bottle blondes? Sounds hideous but explain
Bottle blondes are fake blondes. Annoys me. Also annoys me when eyebrows aren't even the same kind of colour or gradient of colour as the hair.
Flip flops for women because they are hot as fuck. Because I have a foot fetish.
Beards just look yuck. Always lacked that masculine edge, looked too gritty and messy to me.
>extremely high-waisted pants or shorts on women
>Bape and Pyrex
>really almost all clothing where the brand name/logo takes up a significant percentage of visible surface area
Go ahead, call me a grumpy old man
>tfw my first gf had a collection of gauchos in varying shades of tan, brown, grey, and baby-shit green
Takes me back, in a PTSD kinda way.
Not going away. And posting really gross jersey ones doesn't show what you can do with a culotte in a fantastic fabric.
Because you can cross your legs, because the silhouette is different, it doesn't drape the same way. And, as odd as it may sound, some women aren't comfortable in skirts, don't fee like showing off a lot of leg, but want something that's roomy and breezy, especially during the summer. Also, some people just like culottes.
I do agree with both of you that the wide-legged, cropped length on the kind of yoga-pant-y styles that were posted above are terrible because they usually instantly feel cheap and cling in the wrong way, but woven versions almost always do it for me if the proportion's good.
I think the same holds true for a lot of the board memes all over 4chan, they are allright/good, sometimes controversial, but the god-like status they receive makes others hate them
Purses with chains instead of straps
Wearing sneakers casually
Watches with metal bands
Watches with shitloads of extra dials on the face to tell you shit you should already know like what month it is or whether it's dark or light outside
Anything "tribal", this includes those shitty she'll necklaces, shark teeth, swirly tats, bracelets etc
Men wearing leggings under shorts (or compression pants or whatever the fuck that is)
I prefer the way I look with some stubble or a beard but goddamn I hate BEARD CULTURE.
I really loathe anyone that defines themselves by their tastes though. Nerd culture, metal culture, gamer culture, etc.
>work at Starbucks bc only place that would hire me in my town
>everyday walking memes and stereotypes surround me
I've seen some shit
Tattoos and stretchers.
Just wait another 20-30 years and you'll see all the people who jumped on the tattoo trend working at gas stations and emptying garbage cans in office buildings. Idiots.
By then, age and gravity will have caught up with them and the chick with the chest piece will be looking run down and used up while she rings up your order at Arby's. Such a free spirit in her 20's, now she has a raspy voice from smoking/drinking for decades and her bleach blonde hair is frayed and the root color is coming through at the scalp. Her skin is saggy and leathery and her ear lobes are like deflated tires because she stretchied them and Arby's corporate won't let her wear plugs. At 43, she'll claim discrimination and complain to her teenage co-workers on her way out the back exit to take an unscheduled smoke break.
Meanwhile, at 45, her ex-boyfriend with sleeve tattoos and facial piercings will have a gigantic beer gut, a year's worth of beard growth, and wears Chuck Taylors and still has a wallet chain. His tattoos that used to express his personality so well have faded and expanded as he gained weight, plus years of sun from outside labor have turned his skin into a darkened, wrinkly mess. He looks every bit of 60 at 45. The kids at work see his tattoos and stretched ear lobes and think "man, that guy must have been pretty cool about 20 years ago." Every night after work, he stops at the gas station and buys a 12-pack of Natty Ice and drinks himself into oblivion in his shitty studio apartment he's lived in for the past 9 years. In his daily drunken stupor, he wonders where it all went wrong. He wakes up with the usual hangover and prays that his 1974 Bronco will start up so he can get to work at the warehouse on time.
Not trying to be a downer but I know two girls with natural white platinum blond hair. (They keep it blond as any attempt to dye it a different color results in white-looking roots.)
I hate to be a bummer... but they both dye their eyebrows brown. Those blessed with blond hair and eyebrows to match usually hate their eyebrows. They dye them...
Please don't go by that, only because then you'll miss some actual blondes.
Because they're a fold in the fabric that can open up, depending on how you move, thus allowing a larger range of motion. For example, the pleats would open up when you sit down, so the pants wouldn't be as tight across the front. Quite logical, unfortunately don't always look great unless you're deliberately going for a looser type of silhouette.
Why do people do this shit to themselves...
It's hard for me to spot natural blondes. Can some blonde people offer advice?
I usually look at the roots of the hair, but literally only 10 blondes I've ever met irl in Australia have blonde roots. Is it possible to have blonde hair but brownish roots?
>being obsessed with one of the smelliest, dirtiest parts of the human body
Footfags are almost as bad as cucks in my book
dude have you seen what natural blonde eyebrows look like? Looks like you ain't got SHIT eyebrows, it's as bad as being a fucking ginger, of course bitches are going to draw them on or dye them. And yeah most natural blondes have brown roots b/c a lot of "natural" blonde is actually sunbleached or natural highlights in light brown hair that make it look lighter than it would be. Platinum blonde which is what I think you're thinking of instead of average golden blonde/dirty blonde/light brown mix is pretty rare outside of children and bleach kits.
>tfw you're into women with best hair AND defined facial features instead of having some weird browless aryan fantasy
you're good m8
oh and to actually contribute, practical wear being worn as fashion is my #1 hate.
>sportswear (team jerseys & shorts ESPECIALLY shit man knee-length culottes are ugly enough on women why you doing it to yourself wearing basketball shorts)
>hiking/snow gear so shit like puffer jackets
>FUCK NORTH FACE
If you're going to have long hair, commit to cutting and styling it with an ounce of creativity you vape-chugging cunts. Learn to do those viking braids or some shit instead of just rolling it into the equivalent of a college slut's hungover-with-starbucks-and-uggs hairdo. If you can't deal with the attack on your patchouli-scented masculinity for your hair when it's down then CUT IT. Fuck.
Yeah I got long hair jealousy sorry about it. I look like fucking CC DeVille when I grow my hair out, I'm butthurt, I'll admit.
>my girlfriend alison may yeah shes a burlesque dancer and does roller derby
oh my god it's like being back in Chapel Hill
>"vintage" clothing mixed hastily with modern outfits
>large-frame glasses worn by people who don't need glasses
>that weird high-and-tight Skrillex abomination haircut that both men and women seem to be getting
>man buns or topknots
>normcore (wtf is that shit)
>actually scratch the above, if a trend/style has "core" in its name it's probably either a made up /fa/ maymay or absolute garbage
>please tell me there's more of these
I've looked everywhere, and sadly I think the guy who made them quit. He used to post them to a facebook page called something like Stop Beard Culture but the page has been quiet for months
Leaving the fucking sticker on your hat
I get that it started as a retarded way for poor black people to signal wealth, and that's fine. But now it's so fucking contrived.
I even see white, middle class, legitimate baseball fans doing this shit, which makes them look not only like dumb wankers but like clueless cultural appropriators as well. Kind of like tribal tattoos.
>ghetto sneakers with tongues/straps/laces that go halfway up your leg
>wearing a suit jacket and/or tie with shorts of any kind
>that weird pose skinny male models do where they squeeze their legs as close together as possible
>models of any sort pigeon-toeing or splaying their legs/feet at unnatural angles for no apparent reason
>jackets with elbow patches unless you're 65+
>wearing a suit jacket and/or tie with shorts of any kind
but that's a staple of prep fashion for when they're riding around on a yacht or whatever and it's cold enough to wear a jacket, but since their legs are in the boat they're still warm
you'd understand if you have ever ridden in a boat, it really is like that so there's a reason they wear that shit even if it does look goofy.
>you'd understand if you have ever ridden in a boat, it really is like that so there's a reason they wear that shit even if it does look goofy.
I've been sailing since I was five years old and I have never once had cause to dress like that. Closest I've gotten is white shorts and a short-sleeve Oxford
Italian nowadays is usually more slim fitting
>tfw /fa/ggots spend so much time on their fashion when this is perfect
It would get you laid and no funny looks.
If you haven't read Pater you're not an aesthete.
>Glasses (if you can see)
how the fuck would you know, just looking at someone? I and all of my friends wear glasses, some because they have to to see and others because they have really light prescriptions. If you only approve of glasses if they need them to see, why wouldn't you just advocate that everybody wear contact lenses?
I have a hunch that it's because you need your glasses to see, like me, and also because you find contact lenses to be uncomfortable pieces of shit (also like me) and you simply can't stand that other people are wearing glasses for no reason. Why do you give a shit about why somebody is wearing glasses? It makes literally no difference. You can't see if someone has astigmatism or whatever the fuck, so in terms of fashion what is your actual complaint against glasses?
>making fun of people for talking about fashion
>on a board dedicated to the discussion of fashion
How did you even manage to type that post after dragging your knuckles on the ground all day?
No, I have perfect vision. Why is my knowledge relevant? I just think people who don't need glasses shouldn't wear them. It's special snowflake tier and is usually indicative of an adherence to vacuous nerd culture. I think you have mistaken me for someone brave enough to criticise people's clothing to their face.
>Does spending so much time on how you look improve any of your faculties?
Probably not but it makes me feel good. Also, why are you on this board if you don't care about fashion? Its like going to /fit/ and going "LOLOLOL ALL U FAGS TALKIN BOUT LIFTING ALL THE TIME, WHADS THE POINT LMAO"
obviously, american = door salesman and the italian suiting is only worn by big female celebs like kim k or emma watson with slicked back wet hair so they can uphold their pseudo fashionista bollocks
It would actually be kind of cool to see some suited-up traveling salesman roll through peddling cheap appliances and shit
I know it's impractical and unnecessary in this day and age but I just think that'd be neat. Perhaps salesmen could look up data on commonly-purchased Amazon items in a specific area, then stock up on those items and roll through and sell them
idk, just a black or grey suited guy would be kinda sucky, but I'd love to see a big wave of these guys cycling over the hill in perfect formation with their satchels and flyers <
Honestly? I'd cull about 75% of the fashion/photography blogs out there. There's a lot of good stuff to be found these days, but there's also a tremendous glut of mediocrity. That's the great two-edged sword of the Internet, I suppose: it's democratized publicity. It used to be only well-known and established designers, writers, models, and photographers got any kind of a camera; now anyone can broadcast their particular style. These days, every retard with a camera and a vague notion of how to put an outfit together can slap some filters on a "vintage" outfit shot in some abandoned warehouse or a forest, get a few hits on Wordpress or Tumblr, and convince themselves they have some mystical sartorial insight because they can slap together an outfit that's not absolutely hideous.
I'm not sure what the specific name for these pants is, but they're becoming a disturbing trend in Southern California. Super basic girls that think they're fucking fashion queens because they own an instant film camera and shop exclusively at Urban Outfitters ALL own at least one pair of these loose fitting thin pants with a black and white tapestry type of pattern WHEN WILL THIS END
Good lord it's like you live in a pocket of spacetime that is trapped somewhere between the mid-60s and mid-70s for all eternity
How are you even posting? 4chan won't be invented for decades
