All right, so there's a lot of discussion on this forum about
male fashion. However, a lot of it is centered around mainstream
male fashion, which I associate with polos, gq magazine, and
other high-end crap. I just wanted to start a thread focused more
on streetwear or urban fashion.

So would you consider what you wear street/urban?

Nah. Mines a little more bohemian college kid. But in a flattering way.

I like to see the MonoMan (GreyMan) look get a little twisted with a peek of tattoo or screamey boxers - or a polite 'hawk, bleach streak, or skinhead

"Street/urban" as a euphemism for black/hip-hop culture or "street/urban" meaning likely to be seen on the streets of major metro areas around the country or world?

I'm pretty sure my answer would be "no", either way.


@susque - "MonoMan" look? Got any examples? GIS didn't turn up much....

He doesn't wear a suit most of the time. Two Grey Men:




GREY MAN: A man who can blend in to any scene or situation without standing out , hiding his skills and qualities .

I'd give Tim a mohawk and Steve a tribal tat up the forearm for street cred.

Tribal? Please, no.

Thanks for the explanation, though. One more thing I gotta ask - "screamey boxers"?

The one thing I really like about urban street wear is that it incorporates a lot more hats than other fashion trends. And I am referring more to the urban fedora/poor boy worn by hipsters (e.g. Chicago Wicker Park) and NOT the basketball team caps worn by the hip hop/gangster culture (e.g. Chicago southwest side). Here is an example of what I like: urban streetwear hats

I love men in hats. I would love to return to 1920's fashion where men wore a fedora with a distinguished suit. I do not think "grey man" is an attractive trend in business attire.
