Fashion trends you don't buy into - Page 4

post #46 of 238
Most any of the current "hair styles". All the ones where it looks like your goal is to mess your hair up as badly as possible and then gel it in place.

Any idea how hard it is to roll into a new city and find someone that knows what a "business man's cut" is? Not easy, especially when you roll in at 6pm after 3 days on the road and you have to be good to go at 8 the next morning.

Next time I get a haircut out here (SLC) I'm looking for a crusty old man with a spinning pole outside his shop.

Haha, nice.

Mine are pretty boring. I won't do the skin-tight jeans on men thing. Also, the tie with jeans is borderline. It's worst when it's just out there all by its naked self paired with some dubious denim. With a decent shirt, the right jeans and a sweater or jacket or whatever on top to lessen its prominence, then I can deal with it.

lt's common sense really. A more basic last with less curves and refinement. Square toe lasts are basically blocks that have been minimally shaped. l wouldn't imagine much R&D hasn't been done on these primitive lasts either. All round, corners have been cut to: save time and resources. Common footwear for Frankenstien men.

Time is saved because the last requires less time to make and the upper doesn't need time to take shape to the last.
Money in human capital is saved because the expertise required to make the last is much less.



Trends l don't buy into........boat shoes (look daggy), Lapel pins (looks alittle childish), tie pins (look too tryhard and daggy), boot cut jeans (nuff said), long pointed shoes/square toes (jackass shoes), messy short hair (a trend with alot of lanky teenage jackass), tennis shoes worn outside the tennis court.

Flip flops!
Yes, I love them in summer too, but I have students wear them in the winter.
And I just about gag when I'm eating at a restaurant and someone comes in
wearing shorts and flip flops. It's beyond lazy, and rare is the day that a guy or girl really has the legs and feet to really show them off.

I'm not entirely sure brogued shoes can count as a trend, they've been around for an awfully long time. Maybe brogued sneakers are a little much?

Great call! I never understood this trend. Never. It looks odd and affected when the models in GQ wear it, and it looks odd and affected whenever I see this look on the street. The wearer is almost always trying too hard, which inevitably make him a fashion victim.

If anyone can find a picture where someone actually makes this look work, please post on this thread.

I don't wear any of those Bape sweaters or shoes. Or anything with Bape pattern.

Damn, I can't believe how many styles people on here will right off their list just because it may seem to be a trend. Many ideas look great when put together the right way.

Only two things come to mind that I do not understand in any way:

Square shoes
Green clothing sold at Macy's which is also made in India (I'm sure they follow the the most stringent environmental standards over there)

+1. Boat shoes, sandals, flip flops, and brogued shoes are not fucking trends.
