I think im just getting victimised because im young, bar the hypebeast fit and the horrible pout pic I cannot see what I have done wrong. Tbh the fits on here are extremely casual, thats probably why i don't fit in with you guys. The banters all good, but loosers getting all abusive behind there computers, is hillarious. If nbhd, supreme, bape, armani, prada, paul smith (Brands from my recent fits) are hypebeast brands then can someone please tell me what I need to start buying to be 'fuk fashionable?' tty.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you might be missing the point, Fares. Asking what you need to do to fit in is kind of making things more dificult for yourself. But if you want a straight answer then I would say- Dior, APC, Visvim, Uniqlo, Acronym, W) Taps, Supreme, Sophnet, April 77, Hudson, NDC, Base Control, Prorsum, Unconditional and Undercover. There, you'll be fine now! Eye-wink

Since when has it even been acceptable to use the word fits? This is the real world here, the word is outfit or clothes.

It's not so much what he wears (bar an item or two) but how he wears it isn't doing himself any justice. He has some nice individual pieces that should be worn with more subtle clothing to make it stand out instead of a whole fit that screams "LOOK AT ME, ME, ME".

It's just a phase which most heads go through… bare in mind he's only what, 16?

Well either way im yet to see ANY evidence at all that people dress that well on here. Anyway Il carry on posting the odd fit to see how my other sort of OUTfits go.

@Hello world: Sorry sir

a lot of people (myself included) try to stick with safe, plain basics (american apparel, uniqlo, apc etc) and add some flair with some more expensive designer items. not exactly progressive i'll give you that but equally it's more difficult to make bad mistakes that way.

Judging by your age and what you wear, check out some of the WAYWT posts from '04/'05

Visvim and W)Taps aren't any more expensive than some of the brands that you're currently wearing: 'nbhd, supreme, bape, armani, prada, paul smith.' I don't see how they'd be any more difficult to get hold of either. I'm sure you didn't get all of your Neighbourhood, Bape and Supreme gear from a store in Stoke-On-Trent. Eye-wink

Seriously though, you don't need to start buying any of the brands that biglforlife mentioned in order to become 'fuk fashionable.' You just need to start making your WAYWT posts a bit more exciting. The easiest way for you to get e-props on here would be to do something a bit inventive and outside of the norm. I'd suggest making a video for your next fit in which you talk us through what you're wearing. You have a nice garden by the looks of it, so you could film it out there. Failing that, some sort of action shot would be also be cool. Maybe see how high you can jump in your next picture or something. If you want to be an internet superstar then you've got to make it memorable. Cool

Bro, buy clothes for yourself not for other people. If you come on here posting pictures of your clothes for e-praise, then that is where you FAIL. Ive been reading this forum for a long time and the people who post outfits that are not the typical or the norm usually come into some questioning / banter / abuse / criticism. (pm nobles long trousers). also the fact that you keep saying 'fits' is pretty silly considering this is a UK fashion forum. The majority of us are from the UK (including yourself). Cut it out and people might start to take you seriously. Might.

Why go to the trouble of taking a pic, hosting it then posting it here then?

Unless your a serial fit spammer…
