Citaro’s Inspiration Album
So y’all want more inspo albums eh? This is my personal one, it’s a bit of a wreck to be honest. The first part to approximately the orange shirt coat (you’ll see it) is where I want to take my wardrobe now. The rest is stuff that has inspired me in the past, has some good colour pairing, cool clothes or I find inspiration in it one way or another.It also includes some users you know from here, some fits you have probably seen in another album, art, some hair inspo and women (GASP!!!)Here it is in all its glory, hope you find inspiration is it as much as I do

2017 MFA Census/Survey Results

Posted on

2017 MFA Census/Survey Results
Here are the results for the 2017 Census.Thank you to everyone who left a response. With 4,531 responses it’s the most we’ve ever had, admittedly it’s not that many compared to the overall number of subscribers but it’s not surprising given the ‘1% rule’.Without further ado let’s look at the results:Demographics:Overall we’re pretty much in-line with reddit as a whole:Male – this is rather more than reddit as a whole but given the topic of the sub it’s to be expected.Young – over two thirds aged under 26.Heterosexual – we’re actually over represented by those in the LGBT community when you compare the numbers to most Western nations so we’ve got a nice little rainbow (pun intended) going on. (note: I actually cocked up (pun also intended) the entries for this category but the results are still apparent).Single – over half of users aren’t in a relationship.We’ve got a mix of body types – it’s hard to nail down what the average redditor is like (ignoring basement dwelling stereotypes).Mainly White/Caucasian – with a sizeable amount of Asians and Pacific Islanders.Predominately American – about half of all reddit users are from the ‘Good Ole U.S. of A.’, Canadians and Europeans make up most of the rest.Mainly students – almost half of you are, of those who are employed there’s a big mix with the largest group being engineers (this is reddit after all).Lower earners – given that most users are students or young adults it makes sense that most people aren’t making it rain.Demographics Part 2Most users have been a member of MFA for one to two years with a few old salts still kicking around and plenty of plebs new users.A lot of users browse MFA on mobile devices, most users use both mobiles and PCs (mixing to various degrees) and 11% only browse on mobile devices and another 11% only on PC.Most people don’t use the wiki and those that do don’t use it that often, there are lots of useful resources in there, why not check it out sometime?The amount spent on clothing related items/accessories is similar; this year we have more categories to give a more precise view.You rated the mod team highly and we’re all glad for that. We’ve had a number of new mods added to the team over the past year and a few mods step down too. We try and keep things running smoothly and make improvements where we can. We’re always open to suggestions too.Survey ResultsWe asked if you wanted a WAYWT thread on Wednesdays, you said yes – overwhelming. We’ve since scheduled a thread and moved WshoeWT to Thursday. On that note I’d like to say a big thank you to /u/silkymike for posting the Crotch Shot / Aerial WAYWT threads, your efforts didn’t go unnoticed.Fewer people are wearing raw denim, probably a sign of the times given the rise of streetwear and the decline of workwear/Americana.Most users are pretty active, explains the M A S S I V E T H I G H SFewer people own the classic ‘MFA’ items: Allen Edmonds, CBDs and Uniqlo OCBDs. Vans are still popular but Minimal White Sneakers are king.Most users shop secondhand, there are plenty of bargains to be found out there.With extremely similar numbers to last year most users are happy with personal blogs.Over two thirds of respondents are lurkers. We don’t bite, take the plunge and join in, you might enjoy it!crickets The IRC appears to be very quiet.Most people think they have an above average knowledge of fashion, as this is an advice forum enhancing people’s knowledge is the goal.There’s quite the mix of styles being worn and the more the merrier.The most people have spent on a single items is similar to last year, there’s a few big spenders out there.Shirts shirts shirts shirts shirts everybody owns lots of shirts basically, followed by t-shirts.Virtually everyone gets positive comments which is good, or they were just being polite…Almost half of people agree on the definition of frugal.Most of you own fewer than 10 pairs of shoes, there’s a few of you out there with a lot of shoes.The favourite type of content is inspiration albums, they’re also the type of content people would like to see more of. The same applies for discussion and infographics.Somewhat unsurprisingly the most hyped item was Killshot 2’s, there’s not much more to say on that really.MFA is a relatively insular community with StyleForum and 4chan being the largest non-reddit communities members are a part of at 13.6% and 11% respectively.You rated MFA highly both as a fashion community and a reddit community, we’re happy you all feel that way.The longest most people have gone without making a purchase is two months to six months, some of you guys have gone over a year without buying anything.Most people wear socks in summer, regular and no shows.Over half of users want hair/grooming posts to be allowed, there’ll be more on that later.Just over two thirds of users don’t have a tailor and a lot of you are looking for one.A little over a third of people have had their sexuality questioned due to their interest in fashion.MFA and family/friends are the biggest causes for people’s interest in fashion with 29% of users that have always had an interest in fashion.Given today’s economy it’s good to see that our members are of hireable quality although I think some of you might be blowing your own trumpets.On hair/grooming posts:As just over half of respondents want hair/grooming to be allowed we’re going to be running a trial period of about a month when said posts are permitted.Closing comments: Obviously things have changed over the past year; we’ve lost some users (sadly some in real life) and gained new ones, we’ve taught each other new things, had some fun and witnessed some drama. Overall it’s been pretty good and I think we’re a pretty good community. Feel free to discuss the results and make any suggestions in the comments. I also forgot to credit Donger for the survey as I essentially plagiarised it, don’t plagiarise thing kids. Thank you MFA for being you and here’s to another year!Here are last year’s results.

Patchwork/Boro Inspiration Album

Patchwork/Boro Inspiration Album
http://imgur.com/a/UqGCG – The AlbumHere is a good article describing what Boro fabric is.I made this album because I like how Boro fabric promotes sustainability since its all about recycling old fabric and repairing things to extend their lifespan. I also like how patchwork fabric is imperfect looking (wabi-sabi). It also just looks cool and has a lot of character. This inspiration album features a lot of indigo jackets but I tried to mix it up a bit. Thanks for looking!http://imgur.com/a/UqGCG

Simple Questions – March 31
This thread is for simple style questions that don’t warrant their own thread (although we strongly suggest checking the sidebar and the wiki before posting!). Fit checks and “How’d I do” questions are a great use of this thread (although they can also go in the daily Outfit Feedback & Fit Check thread). Other example questions:Could someone take the chest measurement for a small J.Crew oxford?Is there a place with full measurements for Naked & Famous jeans?What slim-fitting green cords do you recommend?Where do I find a military surplus peacoat online?If you’re asking for suggestions for a specific kind of clothing/accessory, state what your budget is.Important: Downvotes are strongly discouraged in this thread. Sorting by new is strongly encouraged.
