How many of you subscribe to a "look"?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Peter Squire, Aug 23, 2005.


  1. For example:

    Emo: Black dyed hair, eye-shadow, tattoos and earrings

    Rock: Long hair, jeans, t-shirts etc

    Jazz: Unique dress sense

    Just wondering if you dress yourselves to match the music you play?

    Discuss.
     
  2. No. I'm usually naked.

    I have long hair, and I like to wear black, so could qualify me somewhere in the hardrock/metal/hippie section..

    If you want to..
     
  6. the music my band plays is so mixed and so is the way we dress. I have long hair, dress in designer fashions gucci/d&g/diesel/versace. Guitarist- bald fade- wal-mart jeans/rap style shirts. percussionist- straight from the hood ghetto look basically any thing that doesn't fit hairstyle varies from whiteboy fro-bald. singer- wears everybody elses clothes sometimes low-profile mo-hawk. back-up singer clothes from the floor and dreads very hippie. we are a funny looking group, but it all works well, and we really dress to fit our personalities. Except me, I only wear the good clothes for shows. Dress really cheap the rest ofthe time. Walmart/outlet stores. I think it's fun to wear $1000 worth of clothes. It may be/or actually is stupid but, I don't care what you think.
     
  7. question Do you really have to wear girl poants to be emo?
    that's the rumor around Louisiana anyway.
     
  8. Good luck? :meh: :confused:

    I'm a prog rocker, therefore I wear a Rick Wakeman cape, a Peter Gabriel fox head mask, and a Rush/2112-style kimono-thing.

    The one Alex wears.
     
  11. The core of my "look" is always consistent. Not really a fashionista at all. I'm a jeans and clunky shoe, big collar vintage shirt type. Works for me, never *really* goes out, and is serviceable enough that can pass as work wear in a pinch. But it's pushin it.

    I just check the weekly Target circular and adjust my look accordingly.

    Then wear Soccer (football) ((Futball)) jersey's on weekends.

    it's not required, only recommended.

    i've got loose-but-not-baggy jeans, skate shoes (once these wear out i'm switching to trainers so's i can parkour better), either concert or Obey Giant t-shirts... and awesome long, curly hair.

  16. I play C&W, western swing, 50s & 60s rock, blues, R&B and jazz. I would probably wear cowboy boots, jeans, a "rodeo" shirt, a big buckle and hat, except that I find those things entirely impractical for playing. I don't want a belt buckle marking the back of my instruments, so I use a small buckle and shove it over to the left side. I wear a pullover "polo" shirt for the same reason, no buttons to mark the back of an instrument. Boots are too uncomfortable to stand in for hours, so I wear running shoes. I think hawaiian shirts look really good for bands, but I won't wear one because of the buttons. The other thing that has determined what I wear over the years is how smokey the venue is and how likely I am to get beer spilled on me. Clothes that do not absorb as much smoke and that clean easily also get my vote.

    Unfortunately, I subscribe to the 8-5 corporate America look. Ah, the things we do for $$$.
     
  19. I've found that most of the trend-theme people (eg goth, metal, skater etc) usually end up at either a community college, a crappy college or no college at all, with some exceptions. They make fine contributions to our blue-collar work force.

    Personally I dress to what might be called "casual". I usually wear Khacki or Linen pants with a collared shirt or well-fitting plain T-shirt.

    Just realize that your attire indicates that you are also one of the "trend-theme" people. We all wear costumes.
