Jeans, for instance, they're so damn dull and conformist! There are millions of colours out there why are almost all jeans blue? I've seen weird coloured jeans and stuff but you have to go to speciality stores. Also, clothing, especially for guys, is so practical there's nothing fashionable about it. If you try to be a bit fashionable you're 'gay.' Even those who are fashionable stick to conservative things like pants etc. It's a bit better for women but they too just wear what everybody else does. I liked the 60s when hippies etc wore some really cool looking clothes, you'd see dandies sporting these like 17-th century style military uniforms or tie-dyed kafkas or whatever, it was groovy. I never lived those times but what I would give to!

Really, what are the other options besides jeans, pants, and shorts? Are you talking about those multicolored hippie/gypsy pants? Or are you talking about a blue sharkskin suit with a tophat?

You can wear whatever you want, so feel free to bring the styles back.

I am personally going to start wearing a monocle and grow a handlebar mustache. If that is not fashion, then I don't know what is!

Wow, OP, get off the computer, go shopping, and make yourself happy.

I see non-boring clothes all day at work. Haven't seen boring clothes in years, actually.

There is no such thing as boring clothes, only boring people that dont know how to dress.

I still have my love beads.

I agree with you. Some things in the 60's, early 70's were pretty awful (paisley polyester shirts on men) but there were some things that would look great today. (If people had the nerve to wear them.) I kept all my jewelry from the 60. My scarves. Perfect for the Paul McCartney concert last year. (And I won't wear any glasses but wire rims.)

Peace and love.

I agree that alot of people today dress with little thought, but I think its because of the prevalance of mass produced t shirts, jeans, sweatpants, cargo pants n shorts for all. add sneakers or flip flops. Its just so easy to put on the basics and forget about it.

But also there are some really fun fashions available for people who want to dress for real, and styles include influences from many periods and shapes to flatter all.

I am just happy to have moved from Indiana to Phoenix where I can wear something stylish and colorful without being asked where I am going.

Well, then, I guess you'll look dandy in your 17th Century uniform and even groovier in your tie-died threads.
