No. As Linds said, it's still very much a fashion, unfortunately, among a large segment of young males, whether urban or suburban. Generally you see it with people who listen to copious amounts of gangsta rap--i.e., rap that has no meaning.

Here it's smart students trying to be trendy.  When the waistline is actually below the buttocks, I can only suppose that they are being held up at the front, presumably by an erection.

Also, one piece of advice to the dudes: wear cardigans. They're sexy.

Seriously? Like Mister Rogers?
Yes, seriously. No, not like Mister Rogers. Cardigans can look awesome, and they can look plain silly, depends a lot on how you wear them - like with most other pieces of clothing.

Mmm, cardigans. Fun for a girl or a boy, just like a slinky! I have quite the collection of cardigans that I hope to keep expanding.

Guys should definitely wear cardigans!

Man, it makes my job of fucking their girlfriends so much easier when they choose to dress up like clowns for no readily apparent reason.

Hey, I like cardigans, on both guys and girls. Actually, I like sweaters in general. Not the super ugly ones, but solid or argyle sweaters are most awesome.

When the waistline is actually below the buttocks, I can only suppose that they are being held up at the front, presumably by an erection.

HAHAHA!

Bad, unless you are running around outside or working out.  Basically situations you could take your shirt off but you would rather not. 

As a Shirt replacement, not at all.

Can look good, but not a lot of people can pull it off, imho, especially if wearing nothing else over it. I find it looks best on people with a very specific build - skinny, but slightly muscly, and some other factor I cannot really put into words.

ETA: I'm talking as a "t-shirt replacement" here.

Any potential for showing armpit hair should be avoided, without question, in every situation (save for times such as swimming, or when you absolutely must be unclothed). So either shave, or don't wear sleeveless tops. That goes for girls and guys both.

I really hope you don't mean that guys should shave their armpits if they want to wear tank tops. Because please don't! Trimming, maaybe, but no shaving, unless there's a good reason to (apparently it can make swimmers faster?). I don't think armpit hair on guys is bad at all, but then again, I also don't mind guys legs, so what do I know?

Legs I'm fine with. There's something about pit hair, though, that's just plain gross. Especially in larger-than-average quantities.

I find I get positive reviews when I trim my nipple and pit hair, and get rid of the manbush down under.  They are good things regardless of the situation.

After having shaved armpits since whenever it was I started shaving, I find armpit hair odd. How does deodorant work if hair is in the way? I think everyone looks better without, but I know both guys and girls who don't shave it at all. (There is only one girl and she doesn't shave her legs either. I forget her reasoning, but kudos to her.)

As for tank tops, sleeveless shirts are better than actual tank tops on guys, unless they are working out or being used as an undershirt. The cut of them just seems feminine to me for whatever reason.

Not to mention sleeves optional is totally punk rock and a way to breath new life into a shirt with pit stains or armpit holes.  Where as tank tops are usually an accessory to gelled hair, so I'll leave judgment up to you the reader on that one.

ugh why are we talking about pit hair.  gross!

tanks on guys are also gross.  i may partly think this because the only guys i see wearing then are pretty nasty, and so i then associate the tanks with their ickyness.  but i mostly just think they look dumb.

sorry guys, apparently i think all forms of clothing which keeps you cool looks ugly :( 
(although sam, i like your shorts.  unfortunately, i don't most people could really pull them off)

btw, thanks guys for your reassurances on the skirt/shirt dilemma!

If you are buying jeans at the Gap then you are most likely not following this trend... there are stores that cater to that.

Man, I will wear a singlet if it is quite warm or if I am going to be doing something where I am likely to be quite warm. I kind of have the shoulders and chest to pull it off but no man should ever wear a tank top. They are wholly undignified and if you wear one, you are probably a jerk (as in there is probably a positive correlation with how often you wear tank tops and how much of a cocksnout you are). Singlets are ok if it is really warm out. Tank tops look ridiculous on guys.

Alright, so, hair question. Basically I've been doing the same thing with my hair since I was like 10/11/12 years old, somewhere in there. And basically I don't really know if it works for me the best, or I don't really know what to do to it to make it best looking on me.

Here are some pictures of me and my hair and various junctures in the past year or so with my hair at different lengths and such. Basically just what I want to know is which way it looks best on me or possible ways to alter it that would make it look better. Those alterations could be slight changes or complete overhauls on the way I have my hair, if it's a good idea.

Beginning of last semester after a decent trim
Just an intermittent hair picture.
Several months ago before most recent haircut
Most recent picture of me, about a week old

And just for some time references:
This is me sans beard and with fairly short hair, probably 2 years old, maybe 1 and a half, I have a bad concept of time.
Just a really old picture, possibly 14 or 15 years old?
Oldest picture of me I could find, with really bad haircut.

But yeah, any advice on that, or even advice on anything else about how I look or what I wear would be cool too, I guess. I'm not exactly the most fashion minded person.

I have a feeling a singlet means slightly different things in Australia (as well as in Norway) and the US.

A singlet to me is a tank top with thinner straps. But I have a feeling that's not what he means either, because why would a tank top be bad if a singlet is okay?

This is, to me, an example of wearing a tank top and looking good. I'm not a huge fan of the top itself, but the fit and the body type wearing it describes what I was talking about earlier.

Um, I suck at hair. Or any thing else for that matter, but based off what has been presented "several months before most recent hair cut" is the best. But I also like the idea of shorter hair... follow your heart?

Clothing choices I can't behind:

Cardigans on guys. Ok, short, fitted cardigans, sure. Fine. Ill fitting ones, no. Thin, overly big ones, no. Big dorky thick ones?



No.

Tank Thong. Have you seen this? It graces American Apparel's site, as well as their stores. I'm not a big fan of thongs by themselves, but adding shoulder straps to hold it even further up your butt? I just don't understand the practically of this. It can't be comfortable.




Brightly, annoyingly, patterned tight denim. Ok, admittedly, girls look better in this than guys, and can usually pull it off, given the correct body type. Guys can not at all ever pull this off. Super tight, "side pipe" showing pants are not hot guys. Fitted jeans, sure. Yes, very attractive. Not pants that hurt when you sit down. Please stay away from these.




Short shorts on men. A conversation from the blog where I got this picture sums up how I feel about them.


"i would be afraid my testicles would fall out of the shorts if i moved the wrong way.
    September 10, 2007 3:29 AM"

"as long as i can gaze at some sculpted legs like that, it's okay by me.
and if the mouse comes out of the house, well, that's just extra frosting on the cupcake.
     September 10, 2007 9:27 PM"

Please. Please, keep your mice in their homes.




Big, nerdy glasses. Ok, I understand that for some reason, think black rims have been in style for quick sometime. Now really huge glasses are in style? I dislike people wearing glasses unnecessarily. It doesn't make sense to me. I guess my brain equates it to someone wearing a arm cast for fashion reasons. Why would you do it?





Also, check out these sweet shorts I found while searching men's shorts.

Upon further investigation it would seem that we are using different terms for very similar items of clothing.

When I think of "tank tops" I think of these monstrosities with the spagetti strings or similarly thin straps



When I say "singlet" I mean something like this



Though one would hope to look significantly less douchey.

I would extend your point to sleeveless shirts myself. I own one sleeveless shirt that I wear to go to the gym or during manual labor like moving, but if I wear it any other times I feel really self conscious.

Actually, for me sleeveless shirts dont work (i have the shoulders of a squirrel). Not covering them up in a tshirt makes for weirdness imo).

Oh, and also on the brightly patterned things front. They give me headaches (yay, a body is moving, every differnt square is doing its own thing). Only redeeming factors for them is that if worn by an attractive lady, the lady is still attractive. (And yes, walking upto her and asking if she wants to help with my headache would actually be a really corny pickupline.)

i really like wearing glasses.  i also really like wearing sunglasses.  i do not feel like paying $200+ for prescription lenses for sunglasses i will probably end up losing or breaking.

i am seriously considering getting contacts and wearing fake glasses.   it's an aesthetic thing, and i willingly admit it. i look way better with glasses than without so i don't really care if it makes me an asshole.

my vision is really terrible. like, appalling. 99% of the time i do nothing to correct it and just sort of make do because i am kind of vain and i look much better without glasses than with them. a few weeks ago i finally made an appointment with an optometrist and decided i'd be willing to spend money on either contact lenses or a nice pair of glasses, but not both, and i really cannot do contant lenses because i always have problems with them like forgetting to put them in in the mornings or take them out at night and then i wake up and my eyeballs are on fire. i went with the glasses and everyone has been telling me the last few weeks how great they are but i still think i look fucking ridiculous. more and more i  have really been considering getting laser eye surgery done just so i don't have to deal with constantly being annoyed by glasses and contact lenses anymore. i'm not normally this picky when it comes to my appearance but glasses are one of those rare things i've never been able to get used to, despite always having bad vision. they make me feel like i've got an enormous zit on my face that everybody is staring at.

basically what i am trying to say is that i am jealous of everyone who looks good in glasses.

I have the same problem and when I don't have them on I get mad heavy headaches. So, I pretty much always have a headache.

you guys are weird.  i don't think i've actually ever seen people look bad because of glasses (unless the glasses were just really ugly).  i know a few people who need glasses and never wear them because they think they look dumb - and most of them actually looked better with them than without!

then again i've been wearing glasses since second grade (7 years old).  so i guess it's a whole lot easier for me to be used to them since i've been wearing them almost all my life rather than suddenly having to start wearing them at an age where i was actually concerned about my appearance.  maybe you guys just need to give it some time for you to get used to seeing/feeling them on yourselves! eventually you will probably stop noticing that they are even there.

Speaking of douche-y accessories, Band-Aids and Chipped Nail Polish:

Honestly? Come on. =/

(that said, I own a package of Marc Jacobs band-aids. I've never used them, not even for f'rlz cuts and scrapes. And especially not to FAKE such things)

The weirdest thing is that Tania looks good in the glasses she has now. They make her seem a bit older and more sophisticated. We basically spent a whole goshdarn afternoon in an optician picking out 'maybes' and putting them in a box. We finally decided it was between two pairs and she went for the better pair. Seriously, she looks really good in them. I don't get it!

Here they are -

































































Okay so that isn't true. Those were the glasses I wanted her to get but she wouldn't listen. Instead she went for these Ralph Lauren frames -



I mean, aside from the ones I chose, these are pretty good right?
