westender





if ever, this was the weekend to spend in the west end. spring is on its way, which is great, because that means we will finally be able to put an end to our over-worn pea coats and leather jackets. ha! who am i kidding! as if vancouverites (especially those young males in the 18-35 year old category) ever give up their leather jackets, come rain or kelowna-forest-fire heat. i'll be honest, even i succumbed to buying a cowhide this weekend. i've lived my entire life in this city, eventually it was going to happen.


so here is what i'm expecting to see rise in popularity this spring. the low-riding baggy-thigh skinny-ankle parachute-pant-esque jeans and pants you see all the korean kids wearing. that, or, denim waist lines will start creeping back up to 1985 heights (shout out to mom jeans). Especially when it comes to women's shorts (blouses tucked in, of course). For guys, i'd like to see deeper, wider necklines and dress shorts that stop mid thigh. And i think its about time guys also got to join in on the glory of wearing really tacky, oversized necklaces, without them being jewel encrusted and in the shape of a dollar sign. okay, so maybe that turned out to be less about expectations and more about hopes. as sad and pathetic our generation is, for borrowing steez from previous generations, goddamnit its fun, so lets keep on doing it.

I love the first guys outfit. The bandana goes so well with the sleeck new school bboy style. Keeps the hair in when your cutting loose.

Parachute pants are a refreshing change from skinny jeans. I'd like to see a few more people embracing them. I actually have a pair that is on regular rotation.

the 1st kid is pretty hip, interesting how he has his belt buckle on the side.
the trio looks cool too. i like the guy on right, love his cardigan, jacket, and goofy sunglasses.

Sure, go ahead and wear parachute pants if you want to look like MC Hammer before he became a preacher in Smalltown, USA.
Fashion should be laughable, and trust me, I'll be laughing!
