Like it Paul, blazer looks great and shirt is cool. Is it current, like the bit at the bottom where it parts somewhat, nice detailing.

i don't think either HW or soultimate are attempting to be revolutionary, im sure that HW has mentioned a few times that he is just wearing what Rirawin was wearing a while back.

also, it should be noted that your idea of creativity e.g. lion king snapback and reebock classics is completely different to most(nearly everyone with an ounce of wit about them) people on here.

haven't been in the game long enough to get the whole "who's copying who" but does it really matter?
i love seeing soulti's fits even though his aesthetic is so different to mine.

They're on about the whole invisible tie thing. I think it looks bang on with a suit jacket. Very 80s. Cool.

Surely one of the best things about this thread is people seeing sick fits and pieces posted by others and taking inspiration from them. I don't see that as copying or wanting to be anyone.

I'm not having a go it's just a bit formulaic, it would be nice to see people trying something a little different, but it doesn't really matter, as long as you're happy.

Creativity only lies in how one puts together their clothes. If a person can put together something that is non-offensive, wearable, and the most important part, a reflection of ones personality/ideals/character, than that person is being creative.

As said, you don't need to be in ironic gandhi garb, and you don't have to devoid yourself of influence to be creative. You say soul & HW are taking a page out of someones book, who is to say they too do not like a clean cut/very kept look in the case of soul, and a nostalgic cool in the case of HW (who is clearly more influenced by Clapton than rirawin). These people are not not the first people to rock these brands but are merely early adopters, I don't own tenderloin, so you aren't gonna hear me talk about who should or shouldn't rock it (in fact the opposite).

If you want creativity in the sense that YOU mean candidate, have a look at some of the hits, and many of the misses on SZ. Or start Rocking head to toe Bless, FACETASM or SASQUATCHFabrix. Try to mix contemporary with very olde traditionalist garbs. Do something nobody is doing.

I really don't think soultimate is copying Seenmy theres always some overlap when both share the same similar interests in labels. Hello World and Rirawin both are Visvim dedicated fans but for me their looks are different enough for me to appreciate and not at all samey.

yea I don't see at all how soul is copying anyone tbh, looks like he just like popular expensive gear. There are others on and off this forum though that are heavily influenced tho, as are many of us in some way, as said he was an early adopter who used to contribute.

People want to see gear they don't see, worn. If more people contribute whether good or bad (who is to say), especially if they go out of their way to have gear not usually seen, it encourages more people to contribute and venture into new brands. it's happening here on this forum.
