Just going to preface this by saying this is really long & definitely overwrought, so just a heads-up

 

Yeah, he's definitely knowledgeable, you can see that even from his post history, and I acknowledged that in my other post. Of course his style has changed, I'm not condemning that, obviously your personal style most likely will, and perhaps even should, change as you grow and mature as a person, it'd be a little odd seeing Seenmy still rocking supreme,dior and vans. But I think the growth should be somewhat organic and unidirectional. It's one thing to go from Real McCoys to Visvim to Junya to Carol Christian Poell - I'm sure there could be a logical path for some people - but deciding to wear full CCP suiting & Drips one day, then full twisted japanese Ameri-Kaji get-up the next, only to change into Paul Harnden or Undercover the next seems something else entirely. The fact that he does "wear diff shit on diff days" is what bothers me. Nothing wrong with experimenting in terms of style to test your boundaries and find what you find the most comfortable and the things that do best align with your personal style, sometimes it's worth emptying your cup to taste some different tea, but it seems like Seenmy has created entire separate wardrobes for himself based on only liking the clothes themselves (and lets face it, most of labels he wears/buys from were or are a dressed by the internet concept, from CCP to PH to Vis to almost everything else) without really consolidating them with himself  - this is where the lack of personal style comes from, in my opinion. 

I'm not really claiming that there's any profundity in my posts, it just started off as a humorous observation of the irony in a post. I don't really consider any of my posts particularly profound to be honest, they're just long, and that's due to an inability to express myself concisely more than anything else. Like I said, not saying I'm the new guard, or that I'm more knowledgable/dress better than him, because that's not really true

 

 

 

Responding to this is where I've had trouble actually typing something that makes sense.

I think a personal style should be at least in some way, an expression of yourself. I'm not saying build a whole intertextual persona from the ground up (E.G. I'm a classy man who appreciates the finer things in life, so I'm only going to listen to jazz, wear classic suiting and drink the finest wines), but at least make the way in which you dress a manifestations of how you want the world to perceive you!  I think it should also be cohesive, or at least look like they're cohesive. An eclectic wardrobe (in terms of brand mix-up) can definitely work as long as it's backed by this kind of personal style - a poster like Fuuma might make something like Engineered Garments blend almost seamlessly with an outfit of Borelli or Brioni (sorry I don't know that much about classic menswear  :P ), because he's styled it in a way that's very much his own and it kind of loses the baggage of its original context. I've seen Seenmy do this in some fits, but in quite a few it seems quite haphazard - like a CCP vest slapped on top of a Soloist jacket almost needlessly, looks quite out of place in my opinion. You have to sort of consolidate their work with your own, rather than simply looking to consolidate their work/ideas with each other, or even more simply, just putting them on together. Also in terms of cohesiveness I think a more singular aesthetic makes sense in having a cohesive personal style more than having the fashion equivalent of dissociative identity disorder, where it's full Carol Christian Poell one day, full Soloist the next, and then full Visvim the day after.

 

Oh, ok then, this one was completely my misunderstanding, so my apologies. Thought your references with retail (and presumably retail prices) vs online shopping was one of "Respect it or check it" rather than something that showed Seenmy's actual experience wearing/trying on/learning about clothing, which I definitely agree with. So yeah, the Ronnel ~baller~ comparison definitely doesn't make sense in that context, sorry.

 

 

That being said, perhaps all of this has to do with the way in which Seenmy actually sees clothing, and perhaps it's the reason he's been so successful in the actual industry. I remember a discussion on Fashionology (I think) centring around CCP, and Fuuma asked Seenmy something along the lines of "What do you take away from Carol's work, I hate to think you only see (I forget the idea that Fuuma mentioned) in his output", and he responded something along the lines of "I don't really think about that/ I'd rather not discuss, I only really care about the product" which is an interesting, albeit odd approach to fashion. He's also talked about how important garment quality is to him, and he's certainly managed to qualify it with some pretty in-depth technical knowledge, or even rather eloquent descriptions of fabrics/treatments - thinking back to CCP here. Perhaps Seenmy doesn't really care about personal style whatsoever, and that the garment is nothing more than an object, which makes him a mannequin to show off good product. 

 

Even if that's true I have no idea why he'd like PH following that reasoning  :blink:

summary:

you are jealous he has more clothes than you

it's like you're ignoring the fact that he's a stylist, a job where you're tasked to put various clothes together. i think you can draw the connection between that and wanting to own and wear different types of clothing. you think good chefs don't go out and try different types of cuisine or attempt to cook it?

 

it also sounds like you have some obsession with people wearing clothes that connect with their lifestyle. consider that some people just like the product. who's more authentic, the kid who spent countless hours researching for his first pair of visvims online and can recite hiroki interviews by heart, or the guy who walked into FIL and bought a pair cause he liked them? 

 

and tbh ccp vest over soloist jacket is a pretty weak argument. did u need him to wear the soloist vest instead?

i don't think this is true. eg look at the way olivier rizzo or panos yiapanis dress. a french chef probably isn't putting chinese on his menu either.

Are torrents even up this early after the release? I remember for the last season I had to wait until the next day.

dunno, but hbo go seems to be working so leggo

 

edit: wah wah wah damn. such a tease

 

i bet there's awesome private sites that have it almost instantly, and prob a bunch of public links tonight too. it's high priority for almost everyone.

 

fucking joke the paid service doesn't even work nearly an hour after premiere. you'd think they would have learned from the true detective premiere if they're going to make any major push against the traditional cable/sat model. twitter is extremely butthurt, haa

 

aww shit we up. last edit, good luck all

fk sutocorp.

 

My last order they didn't mark the customs label correctly AND they forgot to include 3 items in the package. I always ask them to photograph my y!jp shit before it ships and they had sent me photos of the items, including the 3 missing jawnz. When I e-mailed them about it, they claimed they never got requests to bid on the items/didn't get payment (the photos, taken in their warehouse, of the missing items were included in their response, lol).

every proxy screws up

 

they've quoted me higher for postage than when i receive it, only having it credited "to my account" so i'd have to make another order later. i still use them because i've been with them since the beginning so they allow me to bid on my own stuff

 

you guys should try this one (i have not, but have seen it thrown around):

 

http://macatunesjapanproxy.blogspot.fr/

 

charges 6% fee BEFORE everything

 

unlike the rest of the proxies who calculate the comission after bank fees and shipping, like chinese restaurants who auto charge tip after tax
