I like the direction overall but they don't push it far enough to make it very interesting. If you don't do something unique with prepiness (e.g. in Rushmore, the dirty green Rod Lavers with red laces) it comes off as a little lazy. Their music is amazing though.
I agree with the above comment.Just kind of ordinary - in that sort of proper indie way.
but that's what the guy with the glasses is for, right? and i think is actually supposed to be a little lazy.
i was gonna say that they looked like a van
Hi cc - Outta curiosity, what does "looked like a van" mean?
I don't know what "looked like a van" means either but somehow it fits.They look pretty ordinary to me too.
Hi femmenoire et al. - I can't help but think about their style in the context of their music, & the fact that they're a young, new band, & have a ton of potential. I'd love to see what Wes Anderson would do if he styled them, but until then, I find their preppy, barely post-collegiate grad look endearing.
oops sorry misspelling. "band"
you know what? i like a guy (or guys) who knows how to dress nicely, and is aware of current fashion but isn't trendy, and doesn't get his ego all wrapped up in it. i'm turned off by guys who spend more time on their outfit- or hair- than i do. so yay for real guys. i dont' know these guys personally- they could be egomaniacal d*cks for all i know- but i like their vibe.
i agree with the above, you don't want some guy spending a lot of time on his outfit, but i guarantee these guys thought it through—look at the cuffs on those 501's. an original tenet of preppydom is to look effortless but that takes some thought.
On had on sockless topsiders! I remember doing that in the early '80s. Sadly your shoes get stinkier than Vans.
