    so how do you see your style in 10 years? what are you wearing now that you can see yourself in as you get older, or what do you think you'll be buying/wearing that you aren't now?

    keeping in mind that a LOT of people change their body type over a decade, as well as changes in profession and lifestyle...

    i will be very disappointed in my life if i'm not living in the south and wearing linen suits everyday.

    but honestly, the only thing i can see myself not doing in 10 years is wearing jeans to do anything other than change my oil and walk the dog. i sure hate to sound like i should be posting on AAAC but it's the one aspect of my style that i hope to change as i get older. anyone can put together a decent looking outfit with denim, to do it with just about anything else takes much more sophistication.

    You might think that, but I bet if you saw some of the guys on AAAC try to put together an outfit with denim, you'd alter your statement. [​IMG]

    I hope I'm integrating patterns and playing with fabrics more. The fabrics especially, as that would cost more than I can currently afford to spend on clothing, and hopefully that'd be less of a problem ten years from now.

    A suit and coffin.

    Either that, or old button-ups with my kids' spit-up stains all over them.

    God I hope it's the coffin.

    In 10 years, the conversion to rocker will be complete:
    black leather motorcycle jacket with badass fringes that look so ace when I'm ridin'
    white scarf
    black leather shitkicker boots
    righteous DA haircut
    denim, denim, more denim
    baseball bat for beating in mods and other wankers

    As long as it's not a body bag, I don't worry about it [​IMG]

    Seriously, I think it'll be a lot like what I wear now, though hopefully of better quality.

    I will still be trying to break in all the denim I bought during the last six months (provided my waist hasn't expanded too much.)

    I'm curious to see what my shoes and jackets will be like, though; those change more than anything else in my wardrobe.

    anyone see their current style as a "youth phase" and can realistically see themself replacing it with something more in line with the Men's Clothing forum ie:Edward Green/C&J/Lobb shoes...Borelli/Isaia/Kiton/Brioni suits...etc you get the idea...? Do you think your streetwear obsessions will translate into "menswear" obsessions?

    I don't think my streetwear obsessions will ever evolve into menswear obsessions. I think they are two different branches on the fashion tree, with minor intermixing. Shoes maybe the only thing that really cross over (and only particular styles too). People who are not required to wear suits (a great deal these days) won't have enough exposure to it obssess over it.

    i see that transformation happening already. i have a fledgling interest in nice shoes, and button-front shirts. suits are a way off still, but i wouldn't say out of the question.

    the jeans stay in the picture, methinks

    in a nutshell yes, but i don't know if it's in rebellion of my "youth phase" so much as it is a rebellion of the fashion of contemporary society (see, even that thought pattern shows i still think very much like a child [​IMG]). when i was younger i would scour thrift stores for vintage levis and wranglers and trade records for old band t-shirts because my contemporaries were were into cargo khakis and union bay. these days "premium denim" (true religion, sevens, et al) is basically formalwear in most cities and circles in america and i feel that, ya know, i might be wearing the more obscure, better constructed, fanboy version of jeans but when you get down to brass tacks, i'm still wearing jeans out to the restaurant like everyone else. i find the styling of many of the brands discussed on men's clothing to still be too stuffy for my tastes but i'd be lying if i said i didn't research suits and dress shoes all day long.

    Per my future profession, I'm hoping it'll be some nice Incotex pants, some nice ties, and a comfortable, form-fitting shirt. Several doctors I know in LA are already sporting the Crocs because "they're so comfortable" but I'm hoping I'll stay away from those trends. Not a lot of people are going to notice my shoes, though, if I'm in scrubs all day long.

    I hope to stick with dry denim, though. Dark denim seems pretty timeless and classy. I don't want to be going to those Kmart special Wranglers anytime soon.

    I hope that I will have the same freedom to dress as I like as I do now. Many of my tees have already been phased out, due to changing tastes, but I still wear some with tasteful hoodies and jeans and imagine that I'll do so in the future. More suits and ties, or rather, worn with greater regularity, but with the same appreciation of colours, patterns, less usual detailing, and similar fit (though probably a bit looser).
