Been in DC in a while? That is evident up here. I seen somebody with a flat top last week. They are making a comeback. Oh and my post was just saying that buckles had nothing to do with fashion. People who wear it in Texas are not trying to be fashionable.

Whoa, trust me. NY is only a big influence to you guys probably, but down here in Texas we wear what we want. People have been dressing like 80s since the 80s. I never stated Houston started a trend, but get over yourself thinking you guys are way ahead of us.

I would rather kill myself than go to a fashion show and if I wanted to I can always just drive to Dallas, Which is considered the most fashionable city after Miami. People in Louisana,New Mexico,Mexico,and Texas travel to the Galleria to shop in Houston/Dallas.

Boutiques dont make you a fashionable city if you knew anything you would know that. There are reason why LA NYC and miami or top fashion places. The 80s look died out in the 90s and was revived back in 2006 DAllas is reconized for its boutiques not its fashion. And people from NC SC TENN Alabama and many other places come to Atlanta to shop PLus The millions of people that come to visit atlanta throughout the year.

Did it ever occur to some of you people that it's possible for a trend to be nationally accepted? Our country, overall, even while regions may differ, is overall more identifiable as a whole nations than in different regions. I am getting tired of this website, I think the threads become more ignorant and ridiculous by the day.

I rarely see it.....I know you love Ky and love the south, Missy, but playing up Louisville's southerness is not fooling anyone. Compared to the NE or Chicago, sure, it's very southern. But compared to the true south, Louisville is as much or more Midwestern.

I never said I have seen people wear them. I said they SELL them. Go to Jefferson mall, in the middle you will see more than one kiosk selling them. I am not playing up anything, quit being so dang arrogant. Besides, you say Louisville is either Southern or Midwestern depending on your mood. Make up your dang mind.

Oh and while I'm thinking about it, my cousin has two large belt buckles, one with the "mudflap girl" and one with the Confederate flag. My Great Uncle wore cowboy boots, large buckle,diamond ring and a cowboy hat til the day he died. At the Wal-mart in Valley there was a couple, the man had on a cowboy hat and boots, one of the people who works for the water company who comes out top the zoo wears.... cowboy hats and boots. Just because you don't see it in your "artsy-fartsy" part of town doesn't mean it isn't there.

Published in Louisville: Bejeezus

Bejeezus began in 1999 as an irregularly published cut & paste fanzine. Nine years later, it is now a full color arts & culture magazine dedicated to reclaiming southern culture.

Each issue highlights art and culture found in the southern United States and strives to challenge stereotypes of the South, by focusing on its often-underappreciated art, music, film, crafts, food, and literature.


Louisville: Southern with a twist (which pretty much describes Kentucky, too)

And yes, Magnolias do grow in Louisiville. My folks have a huge one in the backyard.

When I lived in the Atlanta suburbs, they felt very southern to me (being from the north I felt out of place quite often).
