Went for a "vintage" look while rolling in town today. Its a public holiday, throngs of people are to be expected. Lots of teens in town as well. Thankfully they included sweet young things dressed appropraitely for the weather. In fact they dress similar to the weather: HOT. Skirts so short they should be belts instead (hey, i'm not complaining), i mean, its entirely understandable for low-cleavage tops as well, how else to wipe off your (yummy) sweat?
Alrite alrite, i'll stop before the perv police steps in...
Certain conversations with my pals have also come to a conclusion, those hype-kids are really poor things. Slaving their wallets in order to dress head to toe to look "original"...its just sad (and embarrassing no doubt) when they find out just about every other hype kid is looking the same. Like my pal Tom says "it ain't about what you wear, its how you wear it". I'm not for boycotting all those branded stuff, but its the mentality, thought and attitude that goes behind wearing "street". Its not about one-upping the next guy by dissecting his apparel by cost/rarity: "hmm, theres no ape-head sleeve tag on that ape tee, bet its fake"; "levis? ain't got nothing on my NBHD Savages"; "never seen that Casio before, interesting..."; "is that Converse? dude, peep my bapes"
No one wants to be a clone, so quit being one.
Whatevs, rant over.
If theres need be, the above combo: Very Ape tee / CasioxHaze G-shock / NBHD wristband / 1955 lEvis single-stitch selvedge / ConversexNexus7 Chuck Taylors
