I dunno, a know several girls who own them and many find them quite comfortable (boot, shoes and sneaker versions so it varies). They're very "fashion" though and fashion people are sorta not in the mood for anything that looks fashion or try-hard right now.

Well, we have lived through about 4 years of (mostly) overwrought goth ninja stuff, which was preceded and overlapped by #menswear.  This in stark contrast to the oughties, which first brought the "premium" jeans thing, which was essentially the LA douchebag look taken worldwide, and then the workwear trend, which pretty much anyone can understand.

 

I really don't love Tabi boots though.  Margiela did them long before 2015 - iirc the first time was in 1989, and I never loved them then either.

Well, Rosenrot could make pretty much anything look dope. Last girl fit is very cool as well.

Love Tabi boots. Disagree on workwear, just like gothninja its extremes are very elaborate and shocking. A basic gothninja look is just some guy in black with a leather jacket with a rocker/goth look, something that anyone who is under 45 and a westerner is familiar with. I agree that basic workwear is also very accessible, no need for enormous beard and train conductor hat.

Things that my circle of friends (working in fashion or around it) are into right now:

-Other design disciplines, this was always the case but now liking architecture and going to see famous houses/exhibit is very big. Spending on interior deco is also seen as cooler than spending on fashion while having a bare apt and a large closet was seen as punk-rock or some shit a few yrs back. Magazine-style apartment is to be avoided so eclectic taste and cosy furniture is imp. Ages of the people very wildly so this isn't because some are older. Art still popular but that is a constant.

-Wearing sportswear but not in the in-your face way of allover designer sportswear or street-goth. Just wearing a basic Nike sweat with something dressier. Sneakers are def big (sure Stan Smiths) but being a sneakerhead is still ewww. Gosha is ok.

-Fashion but with more moderation in fact: a Rick Owens leather is ok, full look is ewww.

-Fashion from the 80s and 90s found in high-end vintage shops is better than current pieces.

-A real bleu de travail is the must-have menswear piece even though no one cares about typical workwear brands.

-Conservative/well-established luxury brands (i.e. Chanel) better than avant-garde or upstarts.

-Lesbians (don't ask, I have no idea either).

-Clubbing is lame, you go to restaurants and cafés then party at someone's place.

I was just in San Francisco last night with some friends who are into fashion, and everyone -- including me -- feels the same way. Might have to do with the real estate prices here though, and feeling like owning property in the Bay Area isn't realistic anymore. Want what you can't have kind of thing. Or maybe because we're all in our mid-thirties.

Anyway, some guy has a friend who owns a three-story lake house in Michigan and a two-story house in a nice neighborhood just outside of Chicago. He paid $750,000 for them both. You can't even get a one-bedroom apartment in a nice neighborhood in Oakland for that price. Really makes me feel like moving out of California.

The feeling when you and one other dude are bidding on something and if just either of you weren't there, one of you would've gotten it for $350 cheaper. The feeling when you finally resign to losing a bid war. The feeling when it's a pair of 6 year old boots. Makes me sad, wanted those boots for two years now.

Spending on interior design and decoration is also orders of magnitude more expensive than fashion...

I really don't understand Gosha Rubchinskiy, don't see how it's good.

I liked that red and black mohair knit he did awhile ago. the other stuff seems like some spoof of 80s/90s skater culture.

Style tip 2: be attractive to begin with

And without overlooking the fact that Kmart actually has scoop neck tees, which looks nice, not too exaggerated.

Perhaps the US will catch on..


NVM, wth
