    its a new fashion/trend phenomenon, big enough to be included at the 2003 year-that-was issue of NYT magazine; here the article

    Thanks, Lena! :flower:

    I think don't follow trends made by main stream Celebs - or all Celebs at all. :)

    Interesting article Lena!

    LOL. I agree with most things said. That's why when buying clothes, I often spend time thinking "is the trend over yet or will it soon be over". That's why I always end up with "classic" stuff. ;)

    I totally agree with that article,.... for example yesterday i went to nordstom and the whole men's department is filled with old fashions that are supposedly hot still. I thought to myself, when is this gonna end... and it kinda made me sick. I try to avoid trends, but now it seems like you can't.

    I dont really follow trends, My philosophy is "If you like it, wear it".

    I'd rather not be a sheep and do as everyone else does.

    Not meaning to offend anyone but thats just my opinion.

    if they're hype-ing it in stores, it was basically over a long time ago.

    Who in the world would want to pattern their style after some grubby truck driver anyway? :sick: :yuk:

    But people will fall for anything just for the sake of trendiness. Suckers.

    I figure that by the time the trends make it to the places I shop (due to finances) they are well over :lol:

    I stick with classics. That way when something looks wonderful on me, and I really love it, I can wear it as long as I wish :D

    Getting off the subject of trucker hats..do you believe that ugg boots are just a trend? I personally wear them for the comfort and the fact that they're great in snow conditions but I recently tried purchasing a pair for my sister and you can't find them anywhere. There seems to be a back order until April 2004. I checked on ebay and people are selling them for around 300-400 a pair. Its funny because I bought mine 2 years ago and use to wear them with everything in the winter and people use to make fun of me, but now everyone's going crazy for them. :huh:

    i think very few people look good in trucker hats as a fashion item, i think if someone is genuinely working a skate look it can happen but otherwise no it is far too contrived,
    im not a fan of ugg boots but there seems to be an abundance of them in the uk, altough to be honest as we dont realy get that much heavy snowfall, then the practicalty value isnt really there, when it is snowy i just tend to wear low heeled leather boots, which i waterproofed.
    celebrity "fashion" tends to bore me. i dont spend my time on the red carpet, i go to dark basement clubs and seek out new and interesting things, that is one reason i dislike magazines like elle and vogue (with the exception of italian vogue which i love) they seem to minded towards what soi dissant celebrities are doing, and whan vogue uk tried to go all arty on us possibly in may i think it looked to me like a desperate attempt at name dropping that went badly wrong.

    Why would anyone wear trucker hats, anyway? Or any psychedelic trend such as this, for that matter?

    I'll beleive it when I see it. I think he's just trying to attract attention, that's all. These people will blurb anything, because if they are wrong - noone will remember it, and if they are right - they'll trumpet it all over when the time comes.

    I would love to see the 'end of the trend' but surely its human nature to (a) get bored and want something new; and (B) copy each other. Thats the basis of a trend. Thats why designers try & come up with new ones. Don't think it will happen unless we all become suddenly content with what we have & happy to be individualistic. Personally I keep up with the trends to an extent I suppose - its difficult not to when you are seduced by amazing advertising every new season.
