How To Cope With Your Unstylish Friends

Being stylish is a heavy burden, especially when you’ve got to hold your whole clique on your shoulders. You’re living the Internet fashion life—selfies got 1,000 likes, but your best homeboys don’t even have a Tumblr and couldn’t tell Nick Wooster from Nick Nolte. You’re proud to still be close with your boys from high school, but fuck, you’re tryna smang some anorexic interns and your wingman is throwing everything off with his ill-fitting sweater. Chill though, many in your unfortunate position face the very same problem. You may get street styled outside a fashion show with your industry sprezz friends, but your real ass peoples will still be there for you when your sad, drunk carcass is being tossed out of a Wichita Fashion Week after party at Cracker Barrel. You don’t have to abandon your hometown homies to live the fashion lifestyle—here’s a few simple ways you can help start them on their journey to getting on your level.

    this article should be titled “how to be the asshole everyone tries to avoid”. if you feel like you have unstylish friends, go get in where you fit in with all the other streetwear posers. we don’t need to buy the latest shit to stay relevant. work on your night moves, not your outfit.

    • NotTooShort

      Um, I would think anyone with “night moves” would fall into the category of “the asshole everyone tries to avoid”…just saying bruh.

      • whatiswhat

        anyone that incorporates “um” and “bruh” into their internet comments automatically becomes the asshole, and unfortunately this time we weren’t able to avoid you. and bob seger is not an asshole. just saying fucktard
