Australian fashion is weird...

Went shopping today with the Don on Brunswick Street and I've started to notice trends in the aussie fashion.

1. V-neck and wide neck shirts... I'm sorry those are horrific fashion errors. They aren't cool, they aren't sexy, they just suck. There were like 3 cools shirts that I had to pass up because I don't like showing off my collar bones.

2. Horrible selection of jeans. Anywhere that Roca Wear or LRG, or LEE are considered designer should be nuked off the face of the planet.Twice. Local brand Tosuibe is also really ghetto. It's like the Broke man's True Religion except even less cool.

3. They have a lot of shirts that list places in the states kinda like those tourist shirts one would buy on Hollywood Blvd. Lame.

Overall the shopping here left a ton to be desired. And yes I did also go to Chapel Street and Turrock, which was reccomended by our DRUNK cab driver.

On the bright side I did find an Adidas shirt that says player on it and has a picture that looks EXACTLY like Toecutter. Like I swear the designer saw him on a DYD product or something. Exactly like him....

    Go to Chadstone shopping centre if you are still in Melbourne. There is some local advice for you.

  2. I like the idea of a cool looking t-shirt with some weird, random American city on it.

    Imagine:

    Meridian,
    IDAHO

    Awesome.

    Who would want to have Steve Celeste's face on their t-shirt?

    Did you go to Oxford St in Sydney? Lots of metro-wear.

  10. Hope some of that fashion gets over here to NZ.
    I've been looking for wide-collared tops. In particular, wide collared hoodies in a light colout and light fabric . I think its a good look.
