I Still Like Green.

Location: The Silver Dollar, Madison, WI
Photographer: wb(?), Katie(?)
Offense(s): poor jacket choices, lime green
Comments: I think this is a lime green linen sports coat. It also may be ventless, which isn't a statement this guy should be making either. I love this picture because it's actually a 2-for(!). Look at that droopy suede trench to his left! I wonder if they are friends because of their terrible jackets, or their jackets are terrible because they are friends.

Location: N. Prospect Ave., Milwaukee, WI
Photographer: "Katie." - wb
Offense(s): roller-tights, blades, keylime green
Comments: This rollerbladed by BikeTub Saturday afternoon while we were out cruising the streets of The Kee. I guess if you're going to give up your self-respect by lacing up a pair of inline skates anyway, you might as well go all in and put on a pair of bright green tights too. Even so, I don't think she needed that helmet of 80's permed hair. Rollerblades didn't even exist back then.

Fashion Easters

The East Side of Milwaukee has a lot of things going for it in general. It's eccentric and eclectic! I don't live there, but I know people who do. And sometimes I get recognized at The Dogg Haus, which is pretty fulfilling. Also, they managed to nab that killer url, so that's pretty hip & cool.

Of course there's a downside to eccentric. I'm sure these people are very nice, they just should wear that:
Tie-dye? Really? Why is there still no foreseeable end to the use of large swaths of tie-dyed cotton-poly blends as clothing? Just stop.

This outfit isn't ever ok, even if you are Madam Mim's rebellious step-daughter. And even though crossing Knapp Street looking like this may be sort of meta, it just highlights your need of a good nnacking. I'm sure Nnobi could work some magic.

Jean shorts. Sandals. Plaid jacket. I love you Gonzo.

Martin's Socks

White athletic socks. Great for running, basketball, and cushioning your bone spur. Terrible for wearing with jeans at a bar.

Ugh! no more Uggs.

Couple of things about Uggs.
1) anything that becomes a phenomena should probably be avoided at all costs. (notice to you tight jean wearing boys and you Croc loving people)
2) even if you are going to wear them, I don't think that it was ever a good idea to tuck your sweatpants into them and allow them to balloon out over the top.

Note that these pictures were taken in Kansas City MO and Madison WI proving that this sweatpant nonsense has crossed statelines.

you shouldn't...

be able to see through your shoes.
