    man i don't think any one was offended by your post bro, you didn't "go off", i honestly could barely understand wth you were trying to say for the majority of it because of all the superfluous fake woke bs you weaved in lol. ( my bad if you are english second language tho, respect for learning / knowing multiple languages if so) lol. ya bro i'm the wave rider. some light hearted assumptions to return the favor. you joined literally the week the acronym prestos release and you've posted multiple times complaining about wrinkled spec sheets. ps. you made “relatively accurate assumptions based on my post”. Lol you called me a serial ship jumper but my post literally is about wearing the same two brands for over 10 years lol.. ya I got no loyalty man .. (Again if this is an ESL reading comprehension thing then all good) Other wise yeah pretty sure you are in a convo with no one else but yourself. prolly should stop listening to that cryptic old mf too. Like i googled mans and one of the first results was how he doesn’t think dogs are cute. Nuff said

    1. you're attempting to sound really smart, but you are really just having a circular conversation with yourself and some projected persona / idea of who you think I am, which honestly sounds really insecure 2. really not sure what you are trying to say with the john mayer part tbh, was purely using him for the sake of a music analogy. I make a second living in music and mayer was a big part of me getting good enough at music at a young age to do so now. not sure what's sus about being a hardcore fan of mayer, any music, or literally any thing. 3. I wrote a completely personal anecdote and stated it as so and you were triggered enough by it to write a complete assessment based on assumptions. i mean this in the most polite and objective way but, that's honestly a super embarrassing level of grade A entitlement, like you are a shining exemplary of what i would like to disassociate with tbh. though you may not be posting WTB: EVERYONE ELSE'S grails. you sound like a underleveled person in many other ways / your view of self importance is quite akin to those other "laymans" as you refer. 4. for someone who references the buddha, you don't seem to know much about him as you reek of self centricity, just my opinion @nodre

    i definitely would get that in everyway and agree if we were discussing something more rooted in being data-driven / adjacent, scientific / math etc. but the concept / definition of being individual-centric is inherently subjective in every aspect, it's based on context even if you wanted to look at it from an objective standpoint, it varies from culture to culture, company to company, family to family , even year over year etc. By no means do I not see and appreciate your viewpoints though. I'm simply saying "fasho I respect that, good shit." it's just not my truth or how i operate, here's how i see it. and i think that's healthy.

    the same action can be individualistic for one person and not for the other. it's all completely personal. re: currying favor, i was simply stating my own current personal definition of being individual-centric. i'm sure everyone has their own definition and views on what that means to him / her as they should, every single person should think for themselves. but similar to former point. it really is to each his own. only we know our own code and breath. that's the wavelength i think about things on at least.

    to me, something is individual-centric if you're doing it for yourself and not individual-centric if you're doing based on how you may be perceived by a party other than yourself. unless you're trying to intentionally play that perception into you're favor or something. ie. dressing a certain way to a negotiation to give off a certain perception so that you can play that in monetary favor for yourself. that's ultimately an individual-centric action.

    ya for me, the interactions were few and far inbetween but it did make up the majority, also the level of dissonance was high for my personal values. the difference for me in this example and the fake taco bell / ll bean situation is i don't care about impact related to society. the scale of the impact doesn't matter in my own mind. cause it's purely about what i think about my own actions and experiences and whether they feel true to self (an ever changing one at that) or not. like it's not the fear of any shame or embaressment from any person or society that would make me want to stop me from eating tacobell / buying LL bean. but simply my own volition and shame for self

    as someone who produces music and owns a few synths but knows nothing about the community behind them, pretty interested in your thoughts around the parallels

    no worries, think this is a great discussion. the answer to both of your first questions, is absolutely not. the music doesn't change whatsoever. my opinions on mayer as a guitarist would not change whatsoever. but what it does change is maybe me considering whether or not I'd enjoy going to live shows as much. similarly if you start hating the changing ambience / vibe of a restaurant you used to love but now only would get take-out there. obviously clothes doesn't have that exact same parity, nor am i equating the live concert / restaurant ambience to the community around that brand necessarily, but to me it's my exposure to the entire ethos of it. Had I stayed completely off the grid, quietly listening to my records by myself things probably wouldn't change. but it's literally that exposure to that part of the ethos that has made me associate that negative energy with this brand. that's a part of how I actually see it in my head. A brand isn't just it's products. like if data came out that said white supremesists make up 50% of taco bell's customers, i'd be like nah i ain't tryna be eating the same food as them. fuck that. not tryna even be in the same resonance as that. and i'd stop eating there, regardless of me thinking they make bomb food or not, it's not their fault at all. it's more changing behavior not because of others, but because of how i feel about it. It's a bit hard to verbalize but i think debating whether an action i'm taking is something that is individual-centric or not with someone who doesn't personally know me or that just plainly isn't me, doesn't really make sense because i'm the only person who can determine that as the individual. also i'm not like boycotting acr out of my warddrobe or anything like that, it's just significantly become less of pillar when it used to be the flagship. and i'm simply saying that because of the ethos not being as perfectly aligned with my values as it once was, as something like visvim currently is, it's just not where I want to put my energy. (also budget for like shit completely related to this, that's just my own personal taste changing etc. but that i can't decouple all of this completely is all) i'm not the greatest at writing things in a clear manner but hope that kinda makes sense. again, completely personal anecdote, speaking 1000% only for me, not attempting to make any sort of broadcast about the state of things in any way or form.

    i think dr gitlin was referring to the people i was referencing in my post, not me, but he might be referring to me and I could be misunderstanding. @appleseed yeah at the core of it, for me it's really an individual-centric thing. my actions are purely based on how i myself feel about the actions that i take (this is just how i live life). ie. what you said about no one knows the things you're wearing are supreme. yeah, no one in my life cares or knows about anything i wear, but i will know, if that makes sense. and that's pretty much all that matters to me? i know that's a little maniacal. the me wanting to disassociate from it was not out of shame that someone might categorize me amongst those i expressed disdain for or anything like that. it's simply that i know the action would not be one of cognitive conssonance. when my principles are extremely individual-centric, almost to a flaw, and i see the fanbase of this being predominantly society-centric / internet centric, it feels completely out of alignment for me. it's more like a hippie-energy thing. it's important for me personally to be in harmony with the ethos of something that is a part of my life. I stay fairly disconnected from social media / all the platforms aside from the infrequent use to sell or buy something but even then those interfactions left an undigestible taste in my mouth. this by no means means i'm not going to keep my favorite pieces. it's just that i've tapered away from it being THE thing for me in relation to fashion art consumption is all.

    personal anecdote as someone whose "ditching" their whole collection. my reason is simply because the majority of the fanbase has become mindless clout chasers vs true enthusiasts that care about art and design. back in the late 2000s supreme / visvim / acr were all in my wheel house, leaning more weightily on supreme. Aside from of course the common idea that you age and your tastes change etc, I ditched supreme completely in 2013, the "fanbase" was becoming something i definitely didn't want to associate my self with. Similar to acr i feel predominantly the audience is just clout-chasing hypebeasts at this point. It's sad because the music is great. but to make a music analogy to this. I have been a hardcore fan of John Mayer since the early 2000s, now imagine if all of a sudden the majority of mayer fans at a concert only know him based on his recent Instagram persona. You attend a John Mayer concert and 4/5 people around you aren't even listening to the music. they are drunk af. talking loudly taking selfies with the flash on obnoxiously. posting to their stories every 45 secs. that's what acr has felt like for the last couple years to me. I have just gone deeper and deeper into visvim over the years as I feel like it has never been subject to anything remotely similar. some of the shoes (fbts) were subject to some of this vain attention for sure, but the facts are that fuccbois aren't going to drop 2.5k on a jacket that they can buy some copy cat version of at a zara. the fanbase feels majority enthusiasts of art. I think i saw some dude post on the fb group the other month like "So please tell me alll the ACR grails" , then the next day made a WTB post of everyone's responses "WTB 47a 43a j28-k all colors" that type of shit. like tf kinda mentality is that. consumption isn't even for yourself if that's how your brain works. you are dictated by whatever status you can potentially gain, not your soul. trash. And when you think about people who listen to music in that very way. well they are the one's hopped up on whatever substance they can find, busy telling everyone on the internet what concert they're at, being obnoxious af ruining everyone else's time.
