^Was curious to hear what our new member shailas thoughts on why it is a great place to shop that's all. I'm sure she has some thoughtful insight.

the first few days of pain stretching out your new denim is worth it in the long run

Doesn't Mossimo sell at target?

Ditto for work boots.

Nothing beats real leather, molded to your foot.

Current trends to note 2006-2009:
Preppy "Andrew Ryan Wallace" style: Kind of boring. All those NYC hipsters in short shorts Thom Browne style
Mountain Man "Bobo" style: Nice look but will become stale. You can only purchase so many Red Wings, flannels and Filson bags.
Goth Ninja: Expensive aesthetic when done well, a lot of cash to spend to look like a comic book villain.
Work wear: Boxy silhouette. Stale color ways. I'm a fan of functional garments but the So Cal climate doesn't compliment the pieces I would choose to buy.

What will be the looks for 2010? I don't have a prediction; I think trends are becoming more and more fragmented. Consumers are making more sensible purchases, which reflects in classic designs, fabrics and color stories, hence a lot of gray in the men's collections for Spring 10.

Personally I'm buying functionally styled outerwear and shirts in black and navy, basic tees in black, white and gray, black and oxblood thrifted dress shoes and basic five pocket slim fit denim. Based upon those purchases I wouldn't say there's a visible trend, just safe consumerism of masculine basics.

Anyone have an opinion about trends for 2010?

I'm trying to become more open-minded.

basic classics, nothing too much in one direction

Women's oversized sunglasses have run their course. They just get bigger and gaudier with each new incarnaton.

I cut my hair every week. This doesn't feel like too often.

I can't stand the phrase "color ways." I realize that it's something of a term of art in the fashion/design business, but I've never seen it used where the word "colors" or "pattern" would not be clearer and simpler.

Your assessment sounds a bit bleak. I hope people don't play it too safe.

I wouldn't completely shy away from unique pieces but I think it takes awhile to develop a sense for what is and will stay truly interesting versus gimicky design.
