Where can you find good inspiration?

I use pinterest and discord (and sometimes catalogues) to find inspiration. But I think I exhausted my curiosity and everything seems kinda...boring. Where do you get your inspiration for your fits?

Mainly on Instagram for me. What style are you aiming for? I'm sure people could link some accounts that fit what you want to be inspired by

This account is pretty modern street wear and would probably tick that box https://www.instagram.com/uniformdisplay?igsh=MWg1cmxlZmZvNWticw==

That account is oversize galore, but digging it

tunnocks🌻45d ago
Oversize best size
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
I try to avoid oversize because i'm kinda short and oversize makes me look tinier but maybe I should just embrace that :/

Did you flip through #inspiration yet This isn't true tbh, mewball wears oversized stuff and everyone thought they were 6' til they said they were like 5'5 or so
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
who is mewball lol
B
Bigelow45d ago
I'm sure you can use context clues to figure that one out
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
i'm going through it, i'm finding some good stuff ngl what's with the obsession with suits tbh i'm terrible at that

Poster on this server https://discord.com/channels/1116793467654381685/1116800072093532191/1205940680979906601 I flipped through the channel and didn't see a ton of suits so idk But some people here like them
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
oh not talking about this channel, just men's fashion in general
B
Bigelow45d ago
A lot of people new to dressing better think that "more formal = better" so they get really into suits However, there are also cool ways to wear suits casually, or suits that are inherently more casual, that can be pretty fun to play around with For example https://discord.com/channels/1116793467654381685/1116800072093532191/1166781508430860298

agree, but I live in a warm/tropical region and it gets fkin hot any summer reccs?
B
Bigelow45d ago
Do you need a suit for a wedding or something? Or you just want to wear more suits?
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
no suits just in general I kinda hate suits tbh idk why i tagged that reply T-T
B
Bigelow45d ago
Oh This is a pivot from your original question so I'd recommend making a new thread
B
bishopcorrigan45d ago
Suiting/tailoring is part of a larger trend in fashion right now Natural ebb and flow If you’re not interested in it don’t worry about it
B
Bigelow45d ago
But some things I like for hot weather are linen shirts, camp collar short sleeve shirts, tank tops, linen pants or shorts, lightweight tees, generally things that fit looser rather than tighter to allow some breeze/airflow to cool you down
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
i should check previous threads or such, but sure i'm kinda interesting in tailoring clothes, but not suits, which are kinda boring to me, but live and let live ig
B
Bigelow45d ago
A lot of people here like wearing ivy/prep which often involve tailored clothes that aren't suits Just scroll through #waywt-highlights or #feb2024-top-waywt for examples

an user of this discord samesies and when looking for inspo I generally like try to picture the look with shorts instead of pants chino shorts all the way
C
carrion45d ago
I don't think the answer is to only wear shorts. Plenty of pants can be worn comfortably in hot climates.
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
I'm a brazilian without air conditioner so allow me to disagree lol but if this isn't so extreme you can try linen pants yeah
B
Bigelow45d ago
I experience temps around 105F every summer and linen pants that are big enough to allow airflow can be more effective than shorts in the sun because they keep the sunlight off your legs chino shorts are not great for the heat. cotton twill is heavier than plain weave
A
artvandelayimporting45d ago
You also just gotta thug that shit out to a certain extent
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
depends if it's a moist or dry climate too fabric > cut > length all the way though I agree also shoes matter a lot almost passed out on overheart once in shorts because I was with a docmartens but on chinos I didn't mean like real chinos lightweight chinos but you have a good point, if you're exposed to sunlight it's good to cover yourself my father worked on the open and always wore long-sleeve button-downs I stay on the shade so I expose a lot of my skin
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
(they know what they're doing: long, flowy, lightweight - for standing under the sun in dry climates)

such as? reccs? i live in the southern part of india, and the sun lives next to my home reccs?
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/how-to-dress-for-humidity.html I like button-downs more than tshirts because the weaves stray further off the body than the knits also they fit your tailored aesthetic
C
carrion45d ago
loose, linen pants are always good. Lightweight, good airflow, blocks the sun.
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
what I see a lot around here are men who get the wet soggy spot on their tshirts and thats. gross.
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
true, i prefer them as well, but I wear a t shirt underneath :/ i'm looking it up rn earthy vibes so far lol
C
carrion45d ago
I'd suggest making another thread if you're looking for specific brand recommendations, we've strayed pretty far from the original ask at this point.
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
I do that but I'm more on the grunge than the prep side yeah you'll get more ppl
B
Bigelow45d ago
If you live in South India you probably can find better stuff locally than I can recommend you from the other side of the world
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
same reason why I just threw a tips site rather than brands lol
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
true, but having some ideas for fits wouldn't hurt
GDR
Gatan do rock45d ago
your local brands probably do better than the imported ones
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
and it was super helpful

Here's me wearing some linen pants

These are from Black Ficus which is a Ukrainian company, but no reason to buy linen from Ukraine when I'm sure you could find some great linen in india
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
yeah, there are many like this
B
Bigelow45d ago
there's a cool indian company called kokun that makes some great looking pants https://kokun.in/collections/bottoms
kokūn
Bottoms
Unique handmade pieces that are easy on the skin and earth for earthlings and artists, across borders. Sustainably and ethically made in India, by rural women
B
Bigelow45d ago
as far as I'm aware, they're priced to export rather than for locals though
KC
Kurt Cocaine45d ago
yeah I was just going through it and whoa, that bitch is expensive I know a ton of local stores that sell almost the same thing for wayy cheaper
B
Bigelow45d ago
there's a lot of hand labor that goes into their dyeing process but if you can find similar stuff for cheaper then that's cool
