I'm skeptical, could something which Urban Outfitters describe as "like jeans without the hassle of zips and buttons" really be a good idea?

Spot the real jeans.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to jump on this trend bandwagon, I should probably wait and see if, like so called wet look leggings, they make the average girl's legs look like a two pack of hipster sausage.

Peace out. I need to think this one over.

PS. You all know cheap mondays will pwn these forever and a day, right?

A Monthly Look at Stuff I Love

Not in any way affiliated with tidbits, this something I thought I'd try out now that I seem to have more than the obligatary few readers. (Hello readers by the way. Say hello sometime. I like you. All of you. Apart from krisoft.)

Here is the first installment of things I like (click to enlarge)

I really like trainers, they're pretty much the greatest footwear of all time (after flipflops, but we only get to wear them for about two hours a year). Although I'm not too sure about the Pumas, I think you have to be a special kind of cool to get away with those, the kind of cool that wears skin-tight courderoy trousers
Blue is probably the best colour, too. Think of all the great things that are blue; the sea and sky on a sunny day, an unclicked hyperlink (yay), the cover of the Killers' first album and British Sea Power's second...I'll stop now before I start sounding like an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba.

Thanks. And I promise I'll stop with the VICE stuff one day.

A quick word

To tell you to appreciate this, in case you don't already read VICE.
Warning, content may offend...and shit. Yeah.

More on Socks Appeal

I think it's safe to say that I love white socks. I bought a 6 pack of white school socks for Leeds Festival last year (probably a really terrible idea, they ended up a sort of brown).

American Apparel take white socks to the next level

I love these socks almost as much as I love their y-fronts for girls. My favourite lo-fi popstars the Dulocks wear them too:

And watch their lovely video while you're at it!

In case you hadn't noticed, OMG TWO POSTS IN TWO DAYS?! I thought maybe I'd written two much about men recently, I'm redressing the balance.
And now I'm off to see if VICE will give me a job.

Never Mind.

Post Modernism is eventually going to die. Once we've recycled everything and nothing is at all distinguishable, we'll have to think of our own ideas again.

I reckon we've got at least 20 years, so for now let's carry on recycling the 80's and 90's.

This week, I am suggesting you dress like a member of a shoegaze band or a member of Sonic Youth, circa the early 90's. Or Kurt Cobain.

Yes, that is the Salvador Dali of UK Hip-Hop, Akira the Don. And yes he is donning (har har) a breton in some sort of attempt to look like Kurt reincarnate.

Breton shirts are so hot right now. I'm not even lying this time because I saw it in the Guardian. Get one.

Next time: Why we must start dressing like female MCs in 1988 and the second rise of the Casual scene. I am so post modern.

Hello. Happy new year and all that, I'm back with more terrible puns and questionable fashion advice. Today, men, I shall impart my wisdom on facial fashions.

It's been a long time coming but I think the humble moustache is finally making a comeback. I did mention this last year. Partially, methinks thanks to this fellow:

He's possibly the least (or most) creditable person ever (former boyfriend of Peaches? eeeugh), but something about his glorious 'tasch makes me like him. Probably because he hangs out with Dev Hynes. He graced the cover of this new men's magazine that I quite like because there are not tits.

Anyway I had a whole list of cool people with moustaches for you but I seem to have forgotten them all in some sort of innebriated state. So you best all appreesh this and I'll be back with some clothes soon.

Nick Cave was one. But that's so obvious I may as well give up. Oh and that guy I posted in the last one.

I finally bought myself a Metal t-shirt, by the way. Thrash Metal no less. Respect my eBay.
