Redditor daou0782 explains the difference between a $450 black t-shirt from Rick Owens and a $5 black t-shirt from Hanes. He then talks about the importance of details, and how there are two ways to appreciate clothing: clothes as means-to-an-end, and clothes as an end in itself. I don’t wear long, drapey, black tees, and wouldn’t pay $450 for one, but daou0782’s post is pretty interesting and sensible.
Will Ferrell just posted a WIWT (What I Wore Today) picture at Reddit’s Male Fashion Advice. He asks:
What do you guys think of my outfit? I’m wearing an aquadry waterproof jacket (a gift from when I did Man vs. Wild with Bear Grylls) and, of course, complimenting that is a classic chupacabra t-shirt. Faded Levi 501’s and red suede Pumas clyde edition.
For better effect, I’d suggest that Will take this photo in a public restroom’s mirror, with a iPhone camera held halfway up the chest.
British GQ interviewed some of the top dogs at Reddit’s Male Fashion Advice forum. A couple of them gave very generous shout-outs to Put This On - thanks guys! It’s a great read.
A Reddit user named Brent Watson has posted an enormous photo album documenting the process of making his own shoes by hand. He taught himself the process by watching YouTube videos, and sewed every seam by hand because he didn’t have an industrial sewing machine. A pretty remarkable achievement.
