No Style

This is a great debate/issue! I am old enough to have enjoyed the many fashion trends of the 90s, and I would tend to agree that the envelope is not being pushed or for that matter being "remixed" in a truly innovative way. Alot of plain old copying is being done, and when I walk through soho I see plenty of people rocking the retro 80s look thing and shake my head. I love the fashion of the 80s and 90s but to just simply copy the style is not innovative or fashion forward. I believe that you can take from different eras, but you have to do it in a way that is subtle and not merely resorting to copying. What I love about the 80s is not necessarily the clothes, but what I loved was the lines, the colors, the fits, the way in which people wore their clothes, the way people threw things together and added there own personal spin. Its pretty lame to just simply look in a book and copy an eras style! I reflect my love for the fashion of the 80s and 90s by recreating the feel and look of the clothes in regards to some of the colors, the lines,cuts,incorporating certain period (inspired) pieces etc inspiration is good but copying and simply mimicing is not fashion forward IMHO check out my blog at: [URL]

Fake Kicks!

What is everyones opinion this epidemic of fake kicks? Its gotten so bad that even kicks that have not been released yet are being faked before they hit the shelves (ex: Dino Jrs, Pee Wee hermans). I even see kicks in colorways that dont even exist in production! What is everyone opinion on this topic? My own feelings are as follows, I use to disdain buyers and sellers of fakes! Yet part of me feels that some of the blame for this ever growing epidemic can be attributed to the sneaker companies themselves. furthermore, the new level of hype surrounding releases of certain kicks has contributed to the new heights of fugazzy kicks. A local shop owner around my way recently admitted to me that he made over 200,000 dollars last year from selling fake kicks (JOs, SB, AF1,fake eyething). I would never let fake kicks touch my feet, but I find that an increasing amount of people dont give a damn whether their kicks are fake or not! have we and the sneaker co. created a monster here, in which demand, hype, and increasing price points have created this sort of underground booming economy of fake sneakers.

all over print hoodies, dead, dying? your thoughts

I dont know about everywhere, but certainly in NYC it is beyond DEAD. Every person around here is rocking all over print oversized hoodies, and every rinky dink store carries them from Dr. Jays to your local african bootleg salesman! I even went to green acres mall and some rinky dink store had 10 deep hoodies next to some other bullshit hoodies....it was a very sad day. But i dont see the trend goin away anytime soon, seems the hood is getting wind of it............and as usual is killing the look.....best bet is to stick to the brands that limit their supply BTW that dead serious hoody is a wrap, went to a party and count them, 5 dudes had same hoody on, shit was like halloween 1987 for me lolsmokeyface

Current Trends...City by City

Here in NYC the 80s thing is big, I even see people rocking 8 ball jackets again in the hood I have stopped rocking so many things, jordans, af1 etc cause the fakes are just out of control. Plaid is goin be big real soon here in NYC. Fake jordans, its sacrilege I tell ya. Jamaicans rocking tight ass jeans with big size 12 reeboks and ed hardy hats, hate it hate it hate it Thing with NYC is you go to different areas and the style is different, I pretty much stand out where i live in queens! I know alot of people hate soho, but its best dressed part of NYC, despite some of the ridiculous high school kids with the bright colors and fresh prince hats. It has the most diverse representation of NYC fashion I feel.

[Quote] My apologies if you found my wording a lil off! (no sarcasm) yeah i was making a clear point that eyeone knows, yet wants to jump on me for saying it! its not an attack on anyone at all, no need for all that. Its one thing to show respect and compliment someone on their outfit, its another thing to completely massage their balls........... you know what I mean?
