lets talk new trips because im bored and every time i browse this shithole im inundated with vast quantities of shit produced by these faceless, talentless, humourless nobodies.
idk who else, thats just what i glanced browsing front page.
so, whats the deal? why do these scum do it? no matter how shitty the old ones were at least they
posted their face
had a discernible personality
werent cardboard cutout personifications of the most bland, witless, low IQ board on 4chan
what can we do to put an end to these scum and their reckless disregard for anything that resembles quality.
i mean you KNOW the board is shit when people like stance and turnleft were more interesting than this current crop of millennial scum.
btw if you dont know who i am you're part of the problem.

There's almost nothing good going on in fashion right now.
Acronym is stagnant, I'm convinced Errolson is bored as shit with it. He's taking the current line and mixing it with Rick Owens type shit while taking the archival line and selling it wholesale to Nike for massive bucks. He's more or less cashed out.
Aitor Throup is even worse, at least Nike is kind of cool and pays the best. G-Star will never be cool no matter how much the fashion media tries to shove it down our throats. Aitor has to learn to make compromises instead of releasing one ultra cool ultra limited ultra expensive line and one ultra uncool ultra unlimited ultra inexpensive line. He should just make his own line slightly less cool, expensive, and limited and stop producing whack shit for other brands.
Alexandre Plokhov is doing the same thing as the above 2 bozos, after struggling in obscurity for years he's now selling off his back catalogue wholesale to Neo Helmut Lang while his own line stagnantes. Which by the way is just a cheap cash in on "avant-garde" fashion having a moment. That's why everything is black and costumey as fuck.
Ann Demeulemeester is retired, case closed.
Arc'teryx Veilance will never go anywhere it's had enough seasons to evolve and it will always just be Arc'teryx mainline with subdued colours and no logos.
Bless will never put out more than one or two cool conceptual pieces a year.
Carol Christian Poell may as well be dead, he hasn't released a collection in years. All he does is sit around and play pantone making neon coloured custom one offs of already existing designs for mega ballers. I don't care if he doesn't want to follow the seasonal system he still has to release collections, it's the only way to truly grow and evolve as a designer.
Comme des Garcons is one of the only exceptions to this shitty list but I never cared about it much in the first place anyway so who cares if it's still alright.
Retro Japanese Motorsport/Racer Style???

Hey guys, really wondering what the name of this type of style/look/AESTHETIC(sorry) is?
I know you guys probably think Superdry is dumb bullshit made by British guys trying to make some fake Japanese style profitable, but I'm sort of into the retro look of it, mostly the vibrant/contrasting numbers or Japanese characters on the sleeves or breast or something.
Anyway, I'm thinking of making my own vintage-style Japanese design (Racer/Motorsport or otherwise) into my own long sleeve shirts (preferably long sleeves that go just past the elbow)
Just kind of want to know what that would even be called, pretty tough defining that aesthetic in my opinion.
Kind of think the jacket from Drive (Sukajan Jackets) or Akira aesthetic. Mostly just Japanese
Any ASSISTANCE would be cool, but also talk shit or discuss if you want, that'd be cool too.
(tl;dr pic related, type of characters I want on a custom long sleeve shirt/jacket, along with my own design, would like name of Japanese Moto-Racer aesthetic)
