what would you call this look?

hey guys

Just thought about getting some new gear and was wondering what it would look like. I probably won't get the skinny jeans because it would highlight my limp and im probably not skinny enough to wear them.

Just looking for style tips really, not out of vanity or anything.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    i personally would call it foul, but it seems to be the trend for young, skinny lads lately

    if u like it, who gives a toss what we thing or what the look is called!

    Gay but each to their own I suppose.

    I like the t-shirts, and the cons are passable (would be much better without that print) but whenever I see a bloke in skinny jeans I laugh so hard I need to sit down for a rest afterwards.

    :yes:

    Drainpipe jeans look godawful on anyone and everyone.

    But if you like it, then wear away.

    well there is a plus to wearing skinny jeans. you can score with emo chicks!

    seriously, upon closer thought, fudge the skinny's and get bootcuts instead.

    Geek Chic (without the chic tbh)

    You'll just look like a fool to put it blatently, like an albino kid who spends his days playing tetris and trying to hack into the pentagon.

    Loose fitting jeans look better.

    I like the Mario t-shirt. That's about it though.

    upon even closer thought, may not get any converse as they wear out too quick.

    I like the shirts though.

    I used to own the know your roots shirt, but in white, until I mixed it with a hot pink towel in the laundry and dried it...

    If that doesn't scare you off the look.

    And I'm with kaffrin on the men (anybody really) in skinny jeans. And converse make me want to gouge my eyes out also.

    those jeans look like tescos value ones, so you could save yourself a few quid and get the £4 ones if thats the look youre after.
    I dont mind the other stuff though. Its inoffensive. I wouldnt be going "wow, thats sexy" or anything though. Id go for some better jeans with it tho

    Not keen on the style personally but each to their own.
    The mario t-shirt with broken print is alright, still dont think i'd wear it myself though.
    If its the gemo style you're after just get yourself down to topman, that shop only seems to sell emo and indie style stuff nowadays.

    As for converse getting battered easily - thats the beauty of them! They look rubbish when they're fresh and clean, so much better when they get worn in a bit!

    a mario tshirt, skinny jeans and converse together equals a scene kid to me :p however i find that look quite nice. without the skinny jeans.

    definitely get some converse :thumb: but not those printed ones, they're a bit too wannabe. normal coloured ones are the best.

    :yes: I HATE brand new Converse. Unfortunately I may find it necessary to buy a new pair soon :(.

    And mine have lasted longer than any of my other shoes, even if they are slightly scruffy. I wear them all the time, and there was a point where they were the only shoes I ever wore for about 6 months. I :heart: my Converse :D.

    I like the shirts, but the jeans...no. Drainpipes = nasty. I know ONE person that looks passable in drainpipes, but that's 'cause his legs are so skinny they don't look like drainpipes on him.

    I like the shirts (but I'am a nintendo girl at heart) maybe not the converse, there are nicer trainers out there. And no skinny jeans please, they just dont look nice on anyone. You just have to try loads on til you find a style that looks good and fits well. Without seeing a pic of you its a bit hard to give exact advice.

    Mario shirt is kinda cool, jeans are GAF though, but like your other fella said - each to their own.
