    I like going to listen to techno / trance and my friend like to go to clubs that have hip-hop. Now, he doesn't get how people cannot wear the American Jackass look when they go to clubs. I don't get how people can wear the Am Jack look. I think it might be a mentality connected to the atmosphere of the music. So my question is:

    What do you wear to clubs?

    "clubwear" kind of lends itself to the amjack thing by default. I don't have "clubwear," because I automatically think of 7 Diamonds and square-toed shoes and shit like that.

    I just wear my normal clothes. jeans, military style stuff, hoodies, etc. etc. though I tend to layer more / dress more specially when I'm going out.

    Depends on the club really. The place I frequent plays mostly electro, futurepop, ebm, post-industrial et.c. Either go with trim vintage military look, which I often wear anyway, or dark shirt, boots & finely pinstriped trousers.

    I dont go to clubs that AmJacks frequent...usually just mod (soul, garage, beat), rockabilly, or indie so variations of my daily wear works for these venues as well. I dont think I could go to a normal club where "normal" people go.

    Yeah, see that’s my problem too. Rap / Hip-Hop is ok once in a while. But you know what? I like Rock, Alternative, etc… and I like Trance. It’s in my nature and I can’t deny it. My friend can’t figure that out. Jon.

    for the record I only go to venues and dive bars. am-jack asses make for poor bar buddies and always seem willing to fight until you're outside. why don't you just look at the misshapes website (www.misshapes.com) and tone it down a whole step keeping in mind that some people look at this website for fuel for hating (http://www.gawker.com/news/blue-stat...ose-193490.php)

    heh whats kind of funny is that indie clubs are starting to go really heavy on mainstream rap. i'd say like a third of all the clubs i frequent (super divey places, no cover, cheap drinks) have been playing tons of mainstream rap. To be honest everything is a welcome change from the overdose of the Smiths and Joy Division that I've been hearing so much of.

    Attack of the clones!

    I don't really like clubs, but if I have to set foot in there, usually try for a rocker vibe. And I always try to get good arm-candy of course.

    well these are the days of post irony. in the past, all the cool kids stole from black culture and pretended to come up with it. Nowadays we all just steal from the culture our predecessors stole and sold back to black culture...its like a double negative i think.

    How would wearing the same untucked stripped shirt, A&F jeans and clunky shoes than everyone else accomplish that?
