yup... hahahaa

and i always wonder why people are surprised about hipsters looking the same ..i guess every style like the idea of being all unique and special..and thats allright i guess

try to imagine someone on the street that would look totally unlike everybody else..is it achievable and if it looks nice, for how long is that person gonna be alone ? who copies from who? i agree that there is trendsetters..but then , there cant be that many right ?

i just think its about being able to appropriate trends and styles..i like some of the hipsters's looks cause they seem to have fun with their clothes and really have it down..some others just dont..i agree..they buy the whole package and throw it all together..

hey but thats my own opinion..and maybe i only take clothes seriously every other day..:p

I know !!! I went shopping there the other day, they were like clones ! We almost felt like weird aliens because both our styles are simple and chic, nothing too "trendy".

Also it seems like people have strongly disagreed with me on the unstylish aspect of Canada. But I guess my idea of stylish is different from everyone else which is something original and distinctive. (like Chloe Sevigny) I saw this girl in Nylon recently with retro white sunglasses, black tee, shorts, black tights and black round toe pumps. If I could look like that I would but its too cold now. oh..canada...
Understood, and agreed, but I wasn't referring to "scene" style at all, nor did I even mention it. I find that just as dull and generic nowadays. I was talking about people who really seem to know who they are and what they like when it comes to their style - hence why I said uniquely dressed.

Birmingham (UK) and Leicester (UK) are two cities that, IMO, are emerging for street credibility. The Bullring Shopping Centre (Birmingham) has certainly helped bring out the fashionable people. But I have noticed, that many of them are either students(not from Brum) or regular shoppers who have come from other cities. When I am in Brum or Leicester, I am constantly looking at people wear. It's so inspiring!

The Japanese way of dressing has had an influence as there are many trendy Japanese/Korean/Chinese in the UK.

Next time I visit these places I will take photos. Hopefully I won't be considered a stalker! It's kinda embarrasing to take photos of strangers.


Fade to Black-take photos of HK style please! It sounds so interesting.

montreal of course is the fashion/hipster capital of canada and has always been...toronto is a big market but its so conservating and boring and it translates into the way people dress. montreal is like a huge life-loving party animal.

The style in Bergen varies a lot; lots of Converse All Stars, stripy tops, jeans, but this pic is very representative; wellingtons, hooded weatherproof jacket; Bergen is the city where it rain the most in Norway. I mean, it really rains ALOT!



These wellingtons from Ilse Jacobsen are quite popular:

^ oh i really wanted those.. but they didn't have them in my size so then I gave up and now I'm got stuck with these. I spent weeks looking for wellingtons in ONE, simple color and ended up with the most colorful ones of all

For the most part it's a very lame and super trendy suburb of Boston. I don't see too many people that catch my eye, and if someone does it's usually someone alot older than me.
Just curious what suburb, I am from Newton.

I live in Chicago, and people dress horribly boring. Either skanky cheap crap thats a knockoff of what was popular last year, or abercrombie. And the ones that try to be hip just look blah. I hate it. And women hardly wear any makeup here, everyone goes au naturel, and really shouldnt...

Exactly. Especially if you go to high schools. At least in mine everyone seems to be a copy of each other. Of course there are those girls that like try really hard to dress nice, but they end up combining all the trends and that just doesn't look right. The bussiness women and just older women in general are pretty boring too; they stick to the traditional bussiness suits. There are, of course, exceptions. This is only from what I see as I'm on the L and in school.
