    Several members have expressed interest in a streetwear/denim discussion board. Rather than have them leave to start one and divert all your attention, I thought we could concentrate discussion here in a separate forum. It is complementary to the Men's Clothing board which will remain open to all clothing topics. However, posting here on denim/streetwear questions may keep your topic from getting pushed down by the more esoteric discussions in MC. Brian SD and LA Guy have agreed to lead this forum, and I want to thank them for their help with that and their contributions in general to the forum. [​IMG] Welcome.

    BTW, feel free to bump streetwear-related threads in MC that you think should be moved here.

    In principle, they would belong in the men's clothing forum, but in fact, those posts would actually probably be more appropriate here.  Maybe we should change the name of this forum to Casualwear, Designerwear, and Denim, and the *other* forum name to Tailored and business clothing and footwear

    Streetwear is actually a term used in the fashion industry to describe "urban", i.e. hip hop styled, clothing, although the term is not generally used that way in common parlance.

    I don't think that would be a good idea. One of the most important segments of bespoke and designer clothing is Casual Wear.

    Streetwear and Denim is less Casual Wear and more a style of dress. The fact that there are designers catering to the type of clothes discussed in Mens Clothes as well as designers who cater to this forum is one very good reason not to change the name of either.

    Yea streetwear isn't necessarily the perfect term, but it's probably the closest we could get. The way I see it, Yohji Yamamoto suits would belong in MC, Y-3 in SW/Denim.

    You guys want to nail down a subtitle for this forum? I started one but I couldn't/still can't think.

    They all start with "Discuss ..."
