What will be the embarrassing look of our time - Page 3

post #31 of 60
I will add - and this probably goes with the pre-distressed jeans - all of the Abercrombie and American Eagle clothing that is sold pre-torn and pre-shredded. Especially the hats - I don't have any trouble beating up my baseball hats myself - why would I want to buy one that already looks that way - and pay an exorbitant price to do so.

Again, what are pre distressed jeans? Aren't distressed jeans cool?
Pre-distressed jeans are the ones that come with fading on the front, whiskers, holes, paint, scraping around the pockets, etc. Pretty much every pair you see anymore. I personally don't think they are very cool. Just my opinion.

+1 i'm convinced this will be this generation's single biggest embarrassing trend to look back on

I think that some distressing is just a natural carryover from the straight up stonewashing of the eighties, and will be seen as such. However, excessive and really fake looking whiskering, prefab holes, really ugly stained jeans (see the Paper Denim "Filter" wash) will definitely go down under the "what were we thinking" category.

I can't remember if this has been posted here before: Look At My Striped Shirt.

maybe I'm not with it but I definatley do not think the pdc filter wash is ugly.

I think that horrible satire and pretty unimaginative. That shirt isn't even that ugly, the trend had much more ugly variations.

i haven't seen this look in a long time. i think it died when ricky martin changed his hairstyle.
We should be so lucky. It's alive and well in New York City, especially in neighborhoods and offices where guys should know better. The only reason why that I can think of is that it was "cool" when these guys were just entering the job market, and they don't have the imagination or nerve to get a new style because what they've got is acceptable in their office/field. Ten or twenty years from now, I think more than a few men will cringe at the memory of mixing high/low: a suit jacket with beat up jeans, a hooded sweatshirt under a blazer, high-tech synthetic stretchy fabrics with tried-and-true natural fabrics.

I think that most men will cringe. The high/low concept is one of the most difficult to do (I hardly even try it, and have suggested it only to my very, very coolest clients, who are generally doing it well anyway, and require only a little tweaking.) The (obviously from a suit) jacket with a thin knit (whether it be a hoodie, a Simon Cowell fitted tee, or a striped button down tucked into jeans, with metrosexually fitted jeans (mid low rise that fit *too* well - usually immaculate condition) and black shoes and belt - this look is guaranteed to go down blazing.

The term "hoodie"

two references to 'american idol' personalities so far. i think this is significant. as a corollary, i predict william hung to be the next hedi slimane.

1) Ridiculously oversized clothing 2) Wearing women's jeans 3) "Vintage" $90 T-shirts 4) Pre-torn, dirty, wrinkled, and any other assorted damaged clothing

Anything from American Eagle or Abercrombie, pre distressed jeans and hats, hoodies, low rise jeans with thongs showing.
