This didn’t exist so I want to start it.
I’ve been sort of out of the Popular Menswear zone for a while but I still like cool clothes and discussion about personal aesthetics, and I figure other people would be interested in talking about clothes, personal style, fashion & its intersections with society, etc etc etc.
Here’s some cool topics to start with if people are interested:
- the met gala and loox comin out of the met gala
- what’s a cool piece/outfit you’ve worn recently and why do you think it’s cool
- what’s a cool piece that you’ve had your eye on but don’t have rn
- if you could define your personal style in a word or phrase what would it be
currently, as a bigger person, I’ve been thinking a lot about how fashion can become an an arm of body normativity and, consequently, a tool of oppression. however, i don’t think fashion is inherently oppressive, insofar that in some way, cultivating a personal aesthetic is really calming and cool and makes me feel good. so that’s a weird thing.
also no bodyshaming, no sexism, no racism, no classism, etc in thread pls. i mean that is basically in the waypoint forum rules but just reiterating since personal aesthetic can be sort of a touchy subject due to its intersection with those things.
let’s talk about clothes and stuff
