    I think it's cool. It's his own style, sure it's a lot and a more toned down tee would work better with the kilt but it's nice to see someone posting original outfits doing their own thing rather than the standard tailored, sartorial look.

    I wore a shirt round my waist today that doesn't look too dissimilar from a 'skirt' layered with a long length tee and a biker, I like the whole mixture of layers, lengths and textures.

    I thought this look wouldn't get much love on this forum . For me, it's a good high fashion look, but I would ditch the fire print skirt and opt for a more muted black or leather one ala Kanye circa Watch The Throne.

    ^i quite like it! I think purely for the audacity! He's from Hong Kong, and having been there many times before, I can certainly see this look being pulled off in certain areas, quite easily. Some districts of Hong Kong are extreme high fashion, almost like Tokyo.

    With his ego, he could stand there in a speedo and be looked at like a fucking hero.

    Seriously though, I'm on the fence about this one. On one hand, you've got a style that is new to these forums, so that's a nice change of pace. On the other hand, to pull off that kind of look, I think you need to have a lot of confidence, which is something that Kanye does really well. I mean just look at his outfits (3rd image from the end is what I believe you were going for)-on the average person they'd look weird but on Kanye they just work because of who he is.

    Anyways, if you wanna go full Kanye then I'd ditch the fire skirt for a black leather one and maybe wear black leather jeans as well.

    Would've loved to have seen this look anywhere other than in a Givenchy store and perhaps with a muted tee and bag. Great to see on here though. Keep posting!

    Like Malti001, it's very refreshing to see a new style popping through on these forums - so keep at it.
    I like the look just minus the skirt, so much more like your other pic here https://www.flickr.com/photos/600918...n/photostream/

    Tote is cool as f*ck though

    It's refreshing but it's a fashion, not a style. Style is timeless and this won't last.

    It looked sick when Kanye used it to perform. It just does not translate to any feesible everyday situation.

    I've seen a lot of Hype Beast wannabes in the Givenchy section of Selfridges and they just look ridiculous.

    If you have the confidence and you enjoy it that is great, but I really don't like this look and I wouldn't say I am the blazer and brogues type.

    To be fair it's a completely different kind of "fashion" to what we're used to here.
    There are obviously disparities in opinion between us, but what we have here is a group of guys who all share a v. similar philosophy towards clothes, and I think we all learn from and adopt things from each other and it shows with the looks regularly posted.

    This forum's norm is so much more conservative than JadeManalac. The above look is not to my tastes either tbh but think this thread was screeaming out for a member like this. Shaking shit up a little bit. Solid addition - keep 'em coming, JM mate!

    I like this - it's very reminiscent of the fashion 1970s British punk scene, albeit a modern day haute couture version.

    It may well be fashion - as opposed to style - but it's a fashion that's been around longer than Kanye West has!

    That escalated quickly. LOL *literally*
    I did not expect that what I wore would create this kind of discussion to extent Fashion vs. Style.
    Likewise what I posted before on "Introduce yourself" thread that I am obsessed with Givenchy thus the Givenchy ensemble.
    As you can see I'm not your traditional suit and tie kind of guy (I think I would never be like that) with that said I have my own style (I like it and confident with my own style) and I'm not opting to be Kanye West Wannabe or anywho wannabe.
    I use fashion to express myself... my individuality. To think about it fashion is not to blend in to the crowd is to be different and stand out rght?
    Nonetheless I am very happy to read all your comments and post about my outfit, its very interesting.

    Remember guys there's plenty of ways to cook an egg *wink wink* hahahaha
    It just an outfit, have fun "Why so serious?" Hahaha
    I joined this forum because when I was signing up for this I thought this community is for FASHION FORWARD GUYS.
    If you ask me I won't change a thing with my outfit because that is who I am.
    I won't be compromising my own style just because someone say so.
    Again I like and I'm confident of my own style.
