    This looks like it is becoming a trend.

    I've seen the tool belts & there are boiler-suits everywhere.

    Does anyone like it?

    I'm not so sure for myself.

    I love this style, mainly the :wub: arpons :wub: and the tool belts.
    My favourite are the Blaak and the Mochino ones, but I'll be getting mine from hardwear stores :wink:
    Not sure if I'll have the guts to wear them though (tool belts are easy but the arpons... maybe in June, with a t-shirt)

    I like it. Has to be with the right outfit, but could be made to look super cool. Maybe I'll try it too :D

    feline-i think i love you-meow

    I love this style- I actually think the aprons are easier than the tool belts...don't know why...I've had this idea for a story which we just finshed shooting-the pics look great-going to see film later-I call it Uniformity...

    Definitely see a trend here-it's still early though-the masses won't catch on for a little while yet. :rolleyes:

    Smacks of the courts of Louis XIV playing at peasant and shepherdess.

    No love.

    What's next, a Dior hardhat? Wee little Manolo steel-toe pumps? Fie!

    didn't we already have the manolo "timberlands"!?

    not that I'm saying that that's a good thing...I hated them!

    I think of it more as honoring the folks in uniform-making it beautiful rather than subserviant or submissive...show the other side....for me, it's about respect...

    I'd say keep the aprons sleek and modern looking, or else they'd veer too much into domestic/French maid fetish territory.

    I saw a guy walking around campus wearing a boilersuit the other day. I'm pretty sure it was as a fashion statement and not for a job or anything.

    I've always loved outfits that remind me of uniforms. I'm not sure why, since I personally held top spot in my school's uniform violations book. I guess I just didn't appreciate it while I had it.

    So I'm going with a yay. As long as it's clean and playful.
