I HATE SF

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I just wanted to start a hate post in regards to styleforum.net. I hate the forum and everyone on it (with the exception of my friends who are registered on both SF and HF/DB). It is full of uneducated douche bags and haters who have absolutely no knowledge of fit, wash, or general aesthetic. Just wanted to send a little love out there to all of you on HF/DB that actually know what the Fu*k you are talking about. Thanks for letting me vent and I hope we can all continue to make this one of the best fashion forums online :)

Don't know about hating everyone on styleforum, but I agree that it is full of haters.  I think many of them have become administrators there as well (for those who have too much time on their hands to do 5,000 postings). 

 

Many talk about how much money they paid for their latest purchase.  Several members posted inexpensive mass market brands on the forums and were labeled as "trolls".  One hater even told another to stab himself with a knife because he purchased something cheap.  These are grown men who supposedly shop at Barney's every week, but act like they are still in high school.  Doubt they had the guts to call out the football team for wearing Old Navy when they were still in school.

They do know their stuff when it comes to mens wear , well some of them do. You thought jeans were complex you have no idea what goes into a suit as far as weaves, cuts, where they're made etc... You really have to know your stuff and how to put it together . You just really just can['throw anything on and expect it to look good. It's a science almost. I bet some here wouldn't even know how to dress to impress if it doesn't include a pair of jeans. With that being said I do agree that some there are snobs.

What makes me lol about it is that all if them think that they are fashion experts. I agree how complex a suit can be and that I'm no expert but again I'm <18

I actually went to design school (FIDM) with a marketing degree from USC.  Currently I own my own trading company doing private label manufacturing for brands.  So I know what goes into the manufacturing of garments.  But without knowing my background, some of these "experts" also attacked me on StyleForum.  They are just chatting about stuff that are already in store, or being published on the Internet.  I actually attend industry trade shows and I used to work for a buying office which publishes trend reports.

 

We are just on different levels.  I don't need to wear a bespoke suit to work because I go in and out of design rooms and cutting facilities all day long.   There is fabric dust and threads all over the place and I am walking around the work place with cutters and sample sewers who wear shorts and aprons.   The girls in the office do wear heels but with jeans and leggings, not Jill Sander suits.  The Project Show just wrapped up in Las Vegas.  How many industry professionas there actually wore suits?  Maybe some of the buyers from Bloomingdale's but certainly not the exhibitors.  And God forbid any of them wore designer suits with fused lapels.  They would be chewed out on SF if they were found out.

 

The haters on SF need a reality check.  Few people care what strangers from the Internet are wearing.  Knowing more about fashion does not make one higher class.  Being rude and cursing at people actually makes one low class, no matter what he wears.

I've never seen this thread and it hilarious, I really wanna check out style forum, nothing like a bit of Internet ego to make me laugh. I'd say a few people who were ran off here ended up there. Im dying to read more musings from the likes of space cowboy and zathan, those guys were bonkers!

yeah styleforum is filled with tools. They seriously think they are important and most look ridiculous no matter how expensive their clothes are. Jett is one of the worst. They probably feel the same way about us here though.

I also think jawnz is dying a death too! Shame! Most of them were break away honest forum members, well the tools anyway!

I used to access SF as a lurker for a really long time. In fact, I rarely have the time to participate on forums, so lurking is what I do best lol.

 

There are a few members on SF who seem quite nice, but most of them are androphobes with low self esteem who mistakenly view clothing as a way of creating new personas and who use SF as a means through which to live their sad new fictitious existences.

 

That in itself is not so bad, but then I realized these guys have actually become a huge racket where a group of retailers have begun to use SF as a way to entice unwary members into the belief that their products are at the bleeding edge of fashion and quality.

 

If you page through the posts you will see how many people are banned, and then note that in almost every case these members are banned for attempting to alert consumers of their bad experiences with suppliers, manufacturers or retailers who are affiliated with the SF site.

 

It seems the retailers and "affiliated" retailers have become the moderators  -  VERY VERY bad for a consumer site!!

 

Anyway, I joined recently to tell those losers about a sale being held by a high-end shoe retailer who had never featured on their crappy site and who has products on sale with far better deals than any of their usual SF "affiliated" racketeer retailers. I posted info on the sale here:-

 

 

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/332860/g-g-and-eg-shoes-on-sale-at-edwards-of-manchester

 

 

This is the oldest shoe retailer in England and these guys are service oriented in the old fashioned sense, meaning they don't participate in rackets.

 

Anyway, within days I was banned, but because so many members benefited from the sale and from my post, the SF moderators decided not to append the term "banned" next to my posts, but the account is suspended.

 

It is obvious that one of the affiliated retailers who is also a moderator banned the account because the guy has since harrassed both me AND the English retailer.

 

SF also won't publish "banned" next to my posts because that would alert everyone that SF is really annoyed that I promoted this retailer which SF members obviously are pleased with. SF are annoyed that SF members have benefited from a supplier who is not affiliated with their crappy little site.

 

This is a seriously anti-consumer site masquerading as a pro-consumer oriented site.

 

The sad thing is that the poor unsuspecting idiots who subscribe to SF in the mistaken belief they are receiving good fashion and style advice all get horribly fleeced and yet they all come back and comically celebrate their stupidity by posting details of the junk they bought at the ridiculous prices they paid.

 

The poor idiots who get ripped off get banned the minute they try to complain, so all you see are tonnes of happy stories with happy endings.

 

I can imagine the gales of laughter from all those racketeers on SF!! 

 

LoL

 

I dare anyone to join SF and post a single critical post about a single manufacturer or retailer which is SF affiliated, see how quickly they ban you  -  it is REALLY hilarious!

 

If you want genuine information on fashion, brands, manufacturers, where to buy, etc, speak to professionals and stay away from these consumer unfriendly sites.
