Seriously, what the hell is up with these? Don’t they hurt? They look like they hurt. No matter how much you want, you can’t have girl hips. I’m sorry – live with it.
I’m sure it’s all part of the whole androgyny rebellion thing, but it annoys me.
I mean, in general I’m 92% function over form. IE if something isn’t comfy I ain’t gonna wear it. And that shit looks uncomfortable. (note that the only pic I could find is not particularly bad, the shit I see people wearing on the street here looks penis-smashingly-painful). In general women (and effeminate gay men of course) seem to be almost the exact reverse of me – like 85-95% form and 5-15% function.
I have definitely worn clothes I liked for “the look”, but I’ll guarantee you they were comfortable. I’ve worn some ugly-ass crazy/silly shit. But it was all comfortable. Even three layers of flannel and tacky-holey jeans…yes, I too have been sucked onto the trend wagon. The difference is I was 12, and these guys are 18-30…
So I’m amused by the whole “metro” thing I guess, masculine (not necessarily straight) guys cashing in their “man”/comfort chips for things that are incredibly uncomfortable just to look a certain way (which I think looks stupid). Of course, this is almost always present in fads, but this is just the latest of many (don’t think I’ve forgotten about you pants-at-knees-underwear-hanging-out-guys!!!) that especially annoy me for what I’m sure are highly irrational reasons.
I know the ultimate goal for the pantswearer is to attract a female of the same pantswearing genus, but I have to wonder why you’d want a female who’s only into you because of the way you look. I’ve always felt this way about women over-dressing too, but hey, they are nice to look at ;). Perhaps it’s because it symbolizes the pantswearing female is into the same stuff as you? But maybe she’s just into that to attract a male too…does she have opinions of her own, or are those dictated by the pants as well? If you’re both living in a pants-driven lifestyle, will your complete trendsuckingness be the only thing you truly share in common? Will it be enough?
Maybe women appreciate the stupid tight pants, and it’s some kind of generational payback. If so, then I’m glad those gullible emoindie kids are paying the painful walking price and not I.
That guy’s shoes are hella dumb too. I’ve worn pointy toed shoes for a dress-up occasion or two and I can tell you that shit ain’t comfortable either without tons of sockage. And then you get all nasty sweaty. fail!
I don’t mind all the leather bracelets and spikey shit for the most part, that stuff can be pretty comfortable/not really noticeable. I think I’ve tried to wear wrist-things in the past, but eventually got tired because the sweat retention and general-annoyance (same deal with watches for me), but I’m not against them per se.
