    And one of the few artists to design his own line of ties:

    http://www.geocities.com/RodeoDrive/4026/dali.html

    He also did a one-off Vuitton bag of some sort, customized with his initials, I recall.

    Lucio Fontana (right in both) was always well put together.

    Those rap clothes are just hideous. I heard that those big baggy jeans were traditionally bought by poor people so that their kids shouldn't grow out of them too soon. I can understand that some rap artists use them, in their context. The pathetic thing about it is the way young, non-poor people here in Spain have adopted that fashion. It just looks weird. Actually, most of the current streetwear looks weird to me. Hugo Boss has this orange label line with some stuff that intentionally looks like trash (however, it is certainly not priced as trash). I once bought an orange label pair of jeans, and only later realized that they were not my style.
    I occasionally see some rap videos at my gym, and some of those rap artists wear great suits, though.


    What poor people do you know of that were wearing baggy jeans before the rappers? The style is from urban streets. Is was easy to hide guns, drugs, etc. in baggy clothing. The low wearing jeans resulted from ex-cons who were not wearing belts in prisons. With everyone wearing white t-shirts, made it more diffcult to identify street criminals. The big baseball caps also help conceal one's identity. Of course, by the time these fashions hit the windows of Macy's, they take on a whole new meaning.

    Dan Sells, lead singer of the Feeling, is a pretty sharp dresser. But Paul Weller is clearly it.

    Nice. Look at that lapel roll! It's almost too perfect.
