Why does mens clothes suck? (18)

1 Name: Anonymous Stylist : 2008-04-07 02:10 ID:O41izTIO

I go to the mall to shop with my girlfriends and they have so many styles and colors to choose from. Forever 21 is one example, there are such a large variety and everything seems stylish.

But then you go to a Men's store and everything is so borrring, the style is never new, just the same old generic shapes. You go to a store like banana and sure it's really nice, but you would never wear the clothes in a casual setting.

I like to wear semi-fitting clothing, boot cut jeans and such. Anything that is falling off just doesn't work for me. I'm very skinny, so it's hard enough to find a small enough size..

you'd think by now people would realize that they're are dresing like they're still in the 90's.

I know exactly what you mean.

But the answer is that most men don't really care about fashion, and companies are really left with no choice but to milk the ones who do if they market anything.

The answer is to buy a sewing machine and start dressing like a video game character to encourage more flair and variety in men's fashion.

I thought boot cut were pretty damn 90s?

If you're looking for more variety in style then you aren't going to find it in the mall. They sell t shirts, polo shirts and buttoned shirts. The only different style I can imagine you can get hold of is if you went really vintage. Like all frilly shirts from the victorian era and stuff like that, which will be expensive and chances are it can't be pulled off outside of a photoshoot.

The best thing I can suggest is look around a lot to find a store whose shirts fit you nicely. If you are buying neat shirts then you can overlook the fit and go for a nice material, but then take them to a tailors and have them adjusted (basically slimmed down). Look for stores that use skinnier guys in their advertisements if you really are that skinny. Otherwise, put on a little bit of muscle because it will open up more options and will generally fit into a off-the-rack mens shirt easier.

Boot cut are kind of late 90s, but these days it's either that or skinny jeans - and skinny jeans are for faggots.

Well, the mall does have some stuff, but you really have to look. For one, while I hate Hot Topic as much as the next non-goth/emo, they are occasionally good for something, like interesting pairs of pants/shoes/hair bleach/etc. Just because most of their crowd sucks doesn't mean that everyone who buys something there does. (I'd just like to state that.)

I was at Macy's a few weeks ago, ans surprisingly they had a nice array of styles. They had stuff besides the normal work/casual/urban/skater line up, though it seemed like they were getting rid of the best stuff.

Depends on how you wear the jeans. Also, you forgot raw jeans.

Also, straight leg jeans are another option. I think that unless you're overweight (OP isn't) generally steer clear of bootcut and go for straight leg that fits nicely (fairly slim, but not tight anywhere)

yea, I do agree with the Hot Topic comment, as long as you don't wear everything Hot Topic it works.
