    Anyone on Reddit?

    Wondering if there are any other Dappered peeps over on MFA, FMF, etc. Would a Dappered subreddit be worth it?

    I have made a couple of posts in one of the shoe restoration threads, and got good info back, but I'm more of a lurker over there.

      As someone who does not frequent Reddit, what would a Dappered subreddit have that isn't here?

        Reddit's MaleFashionAdvice and FrugalMaleFashion forums are very active, with over 2.2MM people. Lots of new items, reviews, discussions, etc. Could gain an entirely new or larger audience through Reddit.

          I'm on reddit, but surprisingly never really got into the major men's clothing subreddits.

            I missed the reddit train when it first came out and now I feel just too behind the times trying to figure it out. I feel like that old lady that posts the status updates to her wall haha.

              I am on reddit but just lurk. I see posts link to Dappered every now and then.

                This is exactly how I feel! Thanks for summing my thoughts up so well.

                  I've posted in the Tomorrowland subreddit a couple times.

                  ETA: Went into GYW and did the Abe Simpson.

                      GoodYearWelt. It's a collection of people who spend their days finding every tiny little nuanced reason a certain pair of shoes is complete trash and should be thrown in a fire.

                      And yes, they have said horrendously negative things about Edward Green, Gaziano & Girling, and even Lobb and Cleverley and Meccariello bespoke footwear.

                      While there's good folks who frequent it, the overwhelming group attitude is "if it's not something I personally own, it's total trash and you should be ashamed of even posting here."

                      Imagine being so disappointed with where your life has brought you.

                        That's kind of hilarious.

                        In the end, it all ends up as trash.
                        WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

                            I've been combing through trying to find anything over the top negative, but I can't.

                            That's okay, anything to avoid writing this boring letter I promised the client by first thing Monday morning.

                              That's just inaccurate hyperbole.

                              You're on the internet where opinions are more abundant than facts, so of course you're going to get tons of negative reviews of whatever you hold dear, especially on Reddit (where the majority (34%) of the users are in the university age range of 18-22, with 23-26 and 27-30 following behind). For the record, I own like 20+ pairs of Aldens and I say horrendously negative things about them all the time, but also love them dearly.
