Its not a striking statement if I were to say that if I took a trip out into town tonight Id be swarmed with seas of Peacoat wearing office monkeys or grimacing youths in low slung grey marl track bottoms, but what are the other staple garms of the common cloned man that are getting on your nerves?

Those fucking grey topman plimsoles, actually all topman plimsoles with bleached jeans that swamp the shoe (wouldn't want to be called a poof). To me those plimsoles sum up topman indie, they are the shoe equivalent of the enemy

Sweatpants and UGGs is standard wear for the long fag smoking birds around here.

Brightly coloured coats/scarves/hats and mittens with some sort of shiney or sparkly shoes is standard for the college ones.

blokes- loose faded jeans, slung too low covering their shoes with the back of the hem trailing along the ground paired up with 'school disco' shirts

women- ballet pumps and leggings (always and forever) with oversived belts that serve no function but are worn on he false pretense of some sort of aesthetic value.

To be honest ive seen more people in skinny jeans that baggy ones. but they are cheap looking and very ill fitting skinny jeans. As if the world went to topman to get them.

many women are wearing thier hair like this:


where they have long hair but the parting is put over very loosely, or the 'ra ra sweep' as i call it.

80's origins are obvious.

Blokes seem to have REALLY skinny jeans, worn REALLY low, proper below the arse and be glad to showing their underwear, or very baggy bootcuts with just the toes of their shoes poking out.
