    With Zoetica on mini-hiatus as Coilhouse readies to drop printed delights on an unsuspecting world, I'm jonesing for my dose of fashion. But I've seen enough hints of daily wear, costumes, knitting, and brass to know we've got plenty of fashion here on Whitechapel to tide me over. This isn't a thread for linking the $5,000 jacket you're not-so-secretly lusting after, it's a place to show off your very own duds: gimme pics of your favorite tee shirt, your faithful chucks, your best goggles, or the corset you stitched from the hides of your enemies. Lemme see your second skins, go.

    I think the idea was to post photos. If I weren't camera shy I would have already done so myself. Besides, a pair of Transmet shades and PUMA sneakers wouldn't exactly stand out here.

    Sometimes I think being a Republican would be the most subversive thing ever.

    Dickies jacket that's just slightly too small and drives me insane. EMG Pickups t-shirt. My friend's dad owns the company.

    Oh, there's a Vertigo pin on the jacket that you can't see for shit.

    What great timing for this thread. Today, after many months of living in Japan and not being able to find any shoes in my size I finally had a brainwave and went to the church of elitist cool - the Bathing Ape store. When I walked in each of the staff members openly looked me up and down, basically assessing what I was wearing. There was terrible hip-hop playing. All the shoes were in glass cabinets and the floor was made of lights. Apparently I passed muster because after the frosty welcome they were super-nice to me, and then they had my size so I was... very happy. But then it took them 15 minutes to find the other shoe, and when they finally brought it out the guy acted all tough and went "aru ne", kinda like "well, here it is". Bless 'em. So anyway, Lichtenstein's palette, by way of a tiny Japanese man obsessed with Nike Air Force Ones:

    God I love them.

    Swoon.

    I'm not really the fashion master that 70% of this site seems to be, but I was pretty stoked to be able to pull this disco outfit together from my collection of ironic 2nd hand clothing from The Goodwill. (Minus the mask and fro, of course)

    @ Trotsky

    Thanks, I think we're going to be very happy together. Is it too early to talk about marriage?

    er, I have some divorce paperwork to finalize, so it may indeed be a bit early.

    still, one must aspire to great things, lol.

    Honey, I was talking about me and the shoes :)

    And thanks for reminding me about divorce paperwork, gotta get on that.

    heh, Mondays rock hard.
    In Japan, is it legal to wed one's shoes?

    dood, i am cursed to perpetually get the same pair of shoes again and again.
    I doubt that I could even stand on a skateboard anymore, and yet...

    They have to be Black, they have to be Vans... the only choice I have left to me is what pattern to go for.

    I envy anyone who gets to wear florescent, multicolored sneakers.

    check this dudes Connies though:
    luca converse

    @Trotsky

    Don't feel too bad, no matter how many pairs of shoes I own (somehow I was given three different pairs of Chucks in the past year) always seem to return to the pair of Vans I bought in 2003.



    A little worse for wear, but they are comfortable.

    Not that you designed the graphics for that jacket or anything. Not as if <a href="http://thewhiteleaf.com/octvember/">they're available for purchase</a>.

    @ tedcroland,
    those shoes are tragic heroes.

    epic.

    I have the same pair actually, minus the blue paint.
    part of the fleet.

    Three battered pairs of pretty standard Converse (white not pictured), notable only because I feel like Dr Who in the the checked grey pair.

    Battered sneakers, bad 70s carpet
