    What are the cool kids wearing nowdays?

    Time for new clothes. Old ones are a bit worn; some I've had forever, some I haven't. Plus, I was told by my last ex that she really liked how one of her guy classmates dressed, and she wished I had some sort of dress sense.

    So what are all the cool kids wearing nowdays? I've heard you just need to look around at what other people are wearing, but since I'm an engineering student that probably won't win me any awards. I like the way polo shirts look but the way they fit feels wrong; either no buttons or buttons all the way, that's the way to go.

    Oh, and pink is the new black only if you're color blind and don't have any friends brave enough to tell you that you look a right twit.

    Cool kids wear old worn out clothes now. You're in luck.

    $600 jeans and vintage shoes. Yikes!

    I'm really cool, and I wear Levi's, polo shirts, flannel shirts, all old. If my wife said she liked the way Dude looks in his threads, I'd tell her to take a picture. Love me for me, not my clothes.

    And don't let the door hitcha.

    All kidding aside, I recommend for jeans, Levi's 527 Low-Rise Boot-Cut. I've had the pair I've got on right now for about six months, and I've worn them every single day (except for a few times when I wore my camo shorts). Really comfortable, fit well, and look great.

    As far as tops, can't beat nice sweaters, button-ups, etc.

    Yes, Levi's low-rise boot cut looks great on men. I hate to say too, I'm a stucker for a guy that dresses nice.

    As you say that I'm sitting here fresh home from school in my "pink" (actually Nantucket red) kahkis. I am greatly offended . I'm also wearing a blue oxford style shirt which I think we all can agree is fine. My jacket is in the trunk of my car, as always. I had a tie, but I ditched it when I was working on my bike on the stand and it almost got wrapped in the cogs and strangled me, what a way to go.
    I may be going to hell in a bucket, babe,
    But at least I'm enjoying the ride.

    Alright man, you're either in or out of luck. Since we live in Austin, you know this is a trendy city which can either help or hurt. I'm not sure what you like but AE (american eagle) has pretty trendy crap. I don't really like their shirts but their jeans are highly worn in and have that trendy look and they are cheap. I'd stay away from Abercrombie, can't see myself spending $100 on some jeans that have paint on them. You could also check out Banana Republic, it's a bit high dollar but more older trendy than young trendy. Express men has some pretty since stuff but you have to be REAL careful because you can come out looking very metro and we don't what that.

    Since it's summer time, go to AE and get you a pair of shorts and some sandals. All you need is a long sleeve button up stripped shirt, you can get those at Old Navy just fine and roll the sleeves up. That's pretty Austinitish and trendy. You just don't want to look TOO done up like the frat kids or TOO metro. So shop around man.

    No man should ever wear American Eagle jeans. They're the most shapeless, unflattering, overpriced pieces of **** ever. Their shorts are fine, though. Another really good place for jeans is Express; just don't get anything with a stupid fade/pattern or anything like that.

    Well here is the thing though, what looks good on one person may not look good on another, so go SHOPPING, try stuff on.

    I've never seen American Eagle jeans look good on any man.

    Most physics grad students would never ask this question...



    At least I think you're a physics grad student.

    EE grad student, but most of my friends are device physics or classical emag freaks, so I play armchair physicist. (Don't ask me about Ti vs. Carbon -- Ti looks like Al to me until you get past 600 degrees or so.)

    HammerTheHill: good advice, man, thanks. I went to the Arboretum and saw all the long sleeves, and wondered if other Austinites actually wore long sleeves in the 90+ degree summer. Hopefully sweat is sexy this year.

    B10: Nantucket red isn't the pink shade I'm thinking of. It's probably personal bias: a redhead wearing a pink shirt looks like a botched dissection in a med lab. Alternately, be glad you have friends like us. *grin*

    Boot cut jeans, eh snicker? Sounds good. Hmm. I might even find a good pair of boots...

    Great. Wardrobe advice from a guy who hasn't washed his pants in six months.

    Jeans and a T-shirt. Two of my three pairs of pants are women's jeans -- they fit better, and they stretch a little, which is a nice feature for a bike commuter. It's all on the same rack at Goodwill, so who really cares or even notices?
    So very poor...
