Actually not even funny in a satirical sense.
[QUOTE=wolololo;35487119]People still wear graphic tees? LOL[/QUOTE] post more pictures ok thanks.
[QUOTE=wolololo;35487119]People still wear graphic tees? LOL[/QUOTE] Woah its been a long time wolololo! How are you looking these days?
the only reason a lot of people who post here hate graphic tees is because pretty much everyone bandwagons and doesn't have their own opinion
[QUOTE=danielplazzy;35488170]the only reason a lot of people who post here hate graphic tees is because pretty much everyone bandwagons and doesn't have their own opinion[/QUOTE] no it's because almost all the graphic tees that people post are shit.
There's good graphic tees and there's bad graphic tees. When someone says these words, "graphic tees", I instantly think of the bad ones though, so maybe thats why they have a bad rep?
[QUOTE=danielplazzy;35488170]the only reason a lot of people who post here hate graphic tees is because pretty much everyone bandwagons and doesn't have their own opinion[/QUOTE] i had that disinclination before i came to facepunch :/
[QUOTE=hula whoop;35488220]no it's because almost all the graphic tees that people post are shit.[/QUOTE] yeah, but it's not the end of the world to wear one i seriously doubt anybody in this thread lives up to the expectations this thread proposes except for maybe that Bldry guy i'm not saying other people don't look good. most of you do. but the expectations are pretty hard to reach.
well fashion is largely subjective anyway there are definite no-nos, fedoras for example, but a lot of other stuff is completely subjective

B-) it's cool that you seem concerned.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;35482161]thats not what i said my two posts dont negate eachother im just saying that while yes u judge people based on the way they dress its an incredible leap in logic to assume that wearing a shirt of something = their favourite thing. isnt the natural assumption and judgement that they are a fan of said thing? to have some kinda weird assumption its their most favouritest!! thing is just strange on your part stop trying to wicked burn me with posts that in no way contradict eachother[/QUOTE] In my opinion wearing something from a TV show/film is kind of going too far. Even if it's not your favorite thing, it's difficult to assume otherwise when you make yourself a projection of it. If you were to meet someone new while wearing a shirt like that, it would come across like a piece of your personality. They should be watched and talked about, not worn. That's like the line between someone who liked whatever show/film however much, and a fanboy/girl. If that makes any sense Plus if you got a shirt for everything you liked even if it wasn't your favorite thing, wouldn't your wardrobe fill up to the brim with pop culture shirts? Then you'll just look like you don't know how to dress so you fall back on buying lots of them Same with games. E.G I enjoyed the Half Life games, but if I saw someone wearing a Gordon Freeman themed Tshirt, I would just get sick in my mouth or something And I do concede that it's not AS bad if the reference is subtle and only fans would get that it's from something, but still in most of those cases it's pretty obvious that it is a reference of some kind, so the wearer will still look a bit of a turd
it's easier to meet people with similar interests who wear "pop culture" shirts "if I saw someone wearing a Gordon Freeman themed Tshirt, I would just get sick in my mouth or something" i mean seriously what
Yeah we should all be like postage stamps that detail our interests What is wrong with dressing well and just telling people what you're into And I meant seriously I would Are you one of the kids that actually does that, because I think my response is pretty much par for the course [QUOTE=danielplazzy;35488170]the only reason a lot of people who post here hate graphic tees is because pretty much everyone bandwagons and doesn't have their own opinion[/QUOTE] Ooh wow edgy You're an idiot When graphic tees come up in this thread, there's almost always conflict over their acceptability, because [b]different opinions[/b] The ones that the thread pretty much as a whole don't like are over-the-top loud and ugly designs done in massive prints It's less like bandwagoning and more like artistic aesthetics. If you see a painting done in unpleasant colours that all clash with each other and with a horrible composition, and everyone in the gallery hates it, you can't cry wolf about them all following each other's opinion
i don't like pop culture references tees, they all have shit designs. it's either 'oooh soooo minimal' or some stupid quote. and i hate tees with just plain text.
If I saw someone with a shirt of Gordon Freeman, would I think that: a) He's interested in the Half-Life Series? b) He likes the Half-Life Series? or c) He's completely in love with the Half-Life Series? It could be any of these, but most likely, and what at least I assume him to be. He could also just like the series and not have a good fashion sense. It's the same with people who are obsessed with anime, but they're pretty normal and people who like anime but are socially out of tune
what kind of mentally disabled do you have to be, to assume someone wearing a movie reference is obsessed with that movie? that is literally the stupidest bullshit
I got a HAIRCUT my dad took my out to the drive way and attacked my with the buzzers. [img]http://i.imgur.com/DLUQr.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/yhYzT.jpg[/img] wadayathink? (its way to fucking short)
[QUOTE=Lord of Ears;35489729]what kind of mentally disabled do you have to be, to assume someone wearing a movie reference is obsessed with that movie? that is literally the stupidest bullshit[/QUOTE] I didn't say one would be obsessed did I? Also, it's assuming things, people do it automatically. Like when you see a black guy with a hoodie in an alley and your alarms instantly raise And even if you took it that way, take it this way then: "The guy really likes the Half-Life Series"
i was mostly talking to mako and still, pop culture references on clothing are so widespread, so prevalent that really, literally nobody thinks of it as odd or "nerdy" or fanboyish, it's just normal wear i don't know why anyone would think of someone as lesser if they're wearing a pop culture reference shirt sure, you can dislike the way it looks, but if you start talking about the people wearing it, that's fucked up [editline]8th April 2012[/editline] sure, there's lines to draw it's much more socially acceptable to go out in my SAVE FERRIS shirt than my gordon freeman shirt but even then, if it's aesthetically pleasing, why not?
I actually rarely see pop culture related shirts outside, that's probably why I'm assuming such things. If there were more people wearing say, Mario shirts or Gordon Freeman shirts, I would take them less seriously. It would still be weird nontheless
videogame reference shirts are inherently weird unless they're fairly subtle or they look really good

it could be shorter on top, but it looks really good right now
