JKISSI : The words titled above brings various meaning across the majority of fashion, or sneaker forums all over the Internet spectrum. It never occurred to me how authoritative and potent it is to each Internet forum. I’m fairly distant to any form of being a creative journalist, or writer I’m more in the medical field so please bare with me. I’m listening to the Message by Nas on repeat to give you guys a visual lol. Just recently I was contacted by the LA TIMES through the help of a good friend to explain the significance of this “What Did You Wear Today” as the reporter Deborah was totally unaware concerning the term. I was slightly perplexed as my brain tried to reach for words and terms to give Deborah a better understanding of the whole concept. The general masses of people wouldn’t really get the whole concept of “WDYWT” probably simplify it to just taking pictures of what you wore that day for the whole Internet to see, and sometimes critique. I get the jokes and smirks from friends and people when seeing me walking to my usual post spot ready to do a post, its hard for me to keep a straight face sometimes lol. Each forum has grown to create their own “Internet-subculture” If I can name it that. Back in 2003/2004 when I first discovered NikeTalk I went with a addiction to sneakers such as Jordans, Airmax, Griffeys, Uptempos, Foamposites and many other sneakers. If someone would have showed me a picture back then of what I dress like today I would probably not believe it. Various forums possess their own aesthetic to what is the norm of the clothes one is wearing. For instance, this is an easy one someone from Superfuture wouldn’t get accepted by the majority if He/She posted a WDYWT picture on ISS forums. I’m not really here to discuss the differences in each forum , but to say that the WDYWT really does affect the forums members who partake in it. The aspect of WDYWT that really amazes me is the evolution of the individual as they start to educate themselves on what comfortably suits their style.
I encourage our readers to comment below on the WDYWT please .
