^ i get what you are saying. Alexander McQ wraps that up for me. I have never really thought about how prevalent the 'fit' is but you are right.

DIE fanny packs DIE!!! Well except for the cute stylish ones.

Thanks,

and I agree on you, but it's also that the fashion styles from Paris of wherever don't work here. The most people don't dare to wear what they like and how I call it, heutemeute, what means doing what another is doing, is the style we have here a lot. And the people who hate that are FANTASTIC.. but between that, there's nothing.

And yeah, the Anarchy thing rocks huh.

so true, i find it a bit odd how they keep this unbelievably huge smile like 'i dont know where i am, but i'm having a great time'--> .

slightly on topic: looking at this thread i've noticed very few people are actually europeans, most of them look like tourists..japanese and american tourists mainly

I wish I'd had a camera with me in town today. There was a guy with a navy tailcoat, light brown waistcoat, and off-white collared shirt, paired with some slim brown cords and cool boots. He even managed to pull it off!

I think no one beats the Japanese in label worship. They account for almost half of LV's global sale.

And in the highstreet shops you see cheap Roberto Cavalli copies everywhere... I so much began to appreciate fashion in my homecountry/town (of course there are exceptions)
btw in Holland/Belgium 'Londsdale' is getting a bad reputation as it worn by racists (the letters nsda would refer to hitler's nsdap) and in Italy everyone is wearing it
Yes. But Lonsdale is mostly worn by "truzzi"
"Truzzo" is a word that designates fashion-unaware narrow-minded most-of-the-time-ignorant people... Also, most of neo-nazis and neo-fascist wear Lonsdale bomber. And ultras too (ultras are the football addicted... like hooligans... in Italy they are mainly from extreme-right-wing).

I don't know why it's so wide spread among this kind of people... it's strange but that's it!

Oh, and I've read about Eastpack backbag Even here, you're perfectly right... EVERY SINGLE boy/girl/child has one of its own... I always loathed those bags 'cause they are too mainstream... until my grandma gave me one as a gift for sure she was worried about her nephew not having one

Wow I really love this smile: <--- It looks pretty much like me!

I already knew that... but still... try and browse a little this thread and compare it to the "japanese street style" one... I'm not saying that they are not brand-addicted, just that they often mix things up in a strange way (at least strange from my perspective).

Anyway trust me, the average japanese is better than the average italian
(and I AM italian)
