Here in Philly near City Hall there's a bar called The Bike Stop. It's a gay bar. A gay Biker's bar. Harleys parked outside. Beefy bearded guys with tattoos. Hairy guys on "Bear Night." None of them wear Ugg books. Motorcycle boots or work boots, yes; Uggs, no.

I do but not on boots. Winter coats with a hood can be trimmed in fur, my gaunlet mittens are, that come almost to my elbows, but not the coat cuff since the fur would be in the way. If I ever make a Mic Mac coat it will on the lower hem. It is a eastern but eskimo like coat, made of brain tan deer and embroridered.

My best clothing is based on the Long Hunter and American Fur trade circa's.

I don't own but one neck tie and it is McKay tartan (modern), I don't own a suit that is modern. I don't even own any shoes, just boots for dress and boots for work, but wear mocs and sandals mostly. The mocs I make, the sandals are store bought pretty much work boots with no top. I wear sandals all winter on ice.

Default They are hideous and reek of poor taste

I agree. The first time I saw them, they were being worn by poor, unkempt hillbilly types. I thought their use was confined to inbreds who live secluded in the backwoods, people who are only seen by accident.

I think they scream "poor taste!" in the same manner that tattoos do and their popularity will go the way of the pet rock and the mood ring. They are not a fashion item that will "stand the test of time." The country obviously at a historically-low point now in standards for fashion and dress with the popularity of these very, very low-class looking ugly boots. If a man is wearing them, that is even more disturbing.

WOW, I dont believe I have ever encountered such deep disdain and emotional upset over an inanimate object


Wearing them with shorts baffles me.
Wearing them in the freezing cold with all the assorted clothing,,(they dont show but for the feet). Whats the big deal?
They are not my only boots that I wear, but I occasionaly certainly appreciate them. They sure arent as pretty or current as some of my others , however,.
Its snowing outside(,just beautiful),and we just went for a walk.
My feet stayed toasty and no one came by and threw snowballs at me for wearing them.

They were common surfer gear in the late 80s, so I do think they will stand the "test of time." They're ugly, yes (hence the name), but they are also warm and easy to slip on. And guys wore them more than girls when I was in high school, so all this "gay" talk is just funny to me. They were perfect after getting out of that cold California water.

They're big this year, so the faddishness will fade in the next year or two, but they'll always be around. They've been manufactured in Australia since the 30s.

Since has SF become the in fashion place to be? I think the one thing SF invented in fashion is the tie dyed t shirt I still have one 35 years old like new, Wanna buy it?

Uggs make so many styles, I guess it all depends on which ones you are looking at.
