Fashions change, it's great, imagine if it always stayed the same. :D

Yes fashion does change, and not always for the better, but style always remains constant.  I'd much rather remain stylish (IMHO), and be labelled 'retro', 'stuck in the 60s', etc, than be 'fashionable' and look a t**t  ;)

But that's the point just because you might not like it doesn't mean its worse, just like people on have stated 'certain mistakes' people make, well who says they're mistakes?  Them?  But they aren't any authority so it's irrelevant.

As for style remaining constant well thats ambiguous and certainly open to debate.

Why would "certain mistakes" re: what people are wearing be a "whose to say" notion , but "style" is  "open to debate"?
They're both open to one's opinions, aren't they?

Exactly they are, that's what I said.  But there are statements on here like they are stating facts.
They're opinions.
Like yours, IMO.

Bought these recently from Claudio





To combine with these



If you ooze masculinity, like some of us do, you have no reason to fear pink.

Ah... I was eyeing those on Claudio's site. Can't decide if I like the higher rise or not, but the "sneaks"
are  8), what brand are they?

They are Colchester Rubber Co. high tops.

The trousers, for me anyway, are a great fit and sit really well and the detailing is great. Also the heavier cotton makes them really usable in the Autumn / Winter rather than usual chino weather of Spring / Summer.

Like those, they stopped producing my PF Flyers apprantly, so I'll keep those "gum soles" in mind.

Long time no see, M, glad to have you back, amigo!

I love those high-rise back buckle chinos, great choice. I like the look of the Colchesters too, but not sure I could pull them off.

Hi Rafa hope you and yours are all good  ;)

Got a pair of PF flyer Grounders on now. Does look like they've stopped making them. Luckily I have a reserve pair in the cupboard. I did get some of those Colchester ones recently too. A good option to replace the Grounder but be warned they are a little narrower.

A shame they aren't making the PF Flyers anymore, best looking basketball boots ever. Well, maybe I'm biased cos I own a pair of them!  ;)
