I have to agree, anything but dress like a hippie.

I packed a lot of turn of phrases in there along with generalizations, "Bell curve" being a big one, so take what i say with a grain of salt. I thought i addressed the fact that Fashion borrows from previous eras with my fourth paragraph, but to me it is also the most obvious medium to see when previous eras have been used.

80's parties ain't my thing, it's just that they won't die already...

Enjoy your posts Robot, keep it up!

These are absolutely fucking hideous.


I think the bottom ones are much less flattering.

women would say that about a lot of what the guys here wear, too.

I barely recognize any of the posters in this thread? Did the flare jeans/wide leg thread summon all of you out from under a rock?

I thought this was a necropost as well.

Ehh, blogs and newspapers are full of spurious "trend" reports. The New York Times Style Page tried to tell us a couple of years ago that pot bellies were trendy. So basically I will believe bell bottoms are in style when my girlfriend and her friends start wearing them.

i base my fashion solely on a couple of friends, they still wear R&R and TR and their defense for not getting fitted denim is "i'm not a fag". when those guys buy their first pair of APC NS i will believe wide legs are back, when they're so blatantly scared and against anything i know i'm on the right track

It's okay, no one's going to hold it against you. But if you're going to be making a thousand posts a year you really need to do a better job of knowing who's on the forum. Perhaps more coffee? Vitamin C? Stronger glasses?

there are certain fashion trends that are flattering to the average person. case in point: i think ballet flats and boots on normie girls have been a good thing. i also think that the "fitted" and "slim fit" trend on men has been the right step forward. these things help the average person because it adorns them with a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette. this trend however will only look good on 1% of humanity.

When wide leg and flares "come back," they will not resemble what the average fucktard looks like currently when shuffling around through Ross Discount looking for tube socks. It will be something that looks right, and we will be ready for it. In the meantime, well-done examples on men are pretty rare. DVN did some extreme wide leg for a/w 2012, but did slim leg in the same show. The slim leg looked better to me. Anyone who wants a current alternative to slim looks should consider the narrow ankle/drop crotch plus drapey top. Some are making that work right now.

Loose and flared clothing looks good on skinny people. It's when the fatties start wearing it that the problems start. Slim fit is on point because they can't fit in it!

This has got to be among the most hideous womens' style trends, probably second only to chopping off all their hair and looking like boys.
