Vice Magazine's Global Trend Report

Here is what Vice Magazine had to state about the "Trend Report" for London:



BOYS As a reaction to the self-imposed squalor
of the punky kids and the shameless fun hunting
of the indie-weirdo gang, the “slightly too smart
for their age” bunch are really upping their formal
dressing skills. The men’s polished brogues, sensible
trousers, high-quality shirts, and mature jacket/jumper
combos usually conceal huge tattoos and a predilection
toward excessive partying. This is a real relief after four
or five years of young people dressing like they are big,
hormonal, hairy three-year-olds with overdrafts and
ADHD. Seeing people under 30 years old who look like
they might actually be able to read is a treat.










Overall, I thought this was very cute. However, I wonder why this was the description
of how young men are styling themselves in London. Here are my thoughts, in question
form.
  1. How many boys do you know who fit this description almost exactly?
  2. How many boys do you know who fit this description and live in London?
    and, alternatively: How many boys where you live fit this description?
    (round up to the closest thousand please).
  3. How pleased are we to find that once again, people under 30 don't mind looking
    like they are able to read? (for more information, start here)
    also- Does this finally signal the death, once and for all, of this nu-rave nonsense
    of purple hoodies/mesh/orange/drug-dealer-meets-hobo-look?

"drug dealer meets hobo look" god so true. I am such a sucker for a well dressed man. Case in point, first time I asked Nathan out he was wearing his red velvet blazer (the same exact one is on tobi right now by ben sherman). That might be because I'm a mod though. Are women attracted to drug-dealer/hobos?
