Overalls
« on: August 30, 2015, 11:58:10 AM »
Who's ready for this new trend??

And who's partaking??

Dickson just came out with some on Altamont, and they're supposedly sold out everywhere, from what a guy I know told me.

KR3W also has some. Come in at like $80. A little crazy. I would rather buy Dickies or Carhartt's. Pretty sure they would last longer, too.
Shopping at Zumiez.....

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

What you'll actually look like when you follow said trend:

Taylor Caruso skates in some that I believe are on some type of raw selvedge hype...  Dickson ones look wack but altamont is a company for little kids anyway.  If you're going to run it you got to get some duck canvas carhartt joints probably. 


wheee!

Gonna have to go 2 straps. Not cool enough for just the single strap.  ;)

Seriously though, I'm interested in what people think of it. A lot of negative feedback in here so far.

I kinda dig it. I've actually been thinking of getting a pair for awhile now. Just haven't pulled the trigger. I know a couple people that I'm friends with that are backing it. Something fun, new. I mean, where else do we go from the Dickies/rolled up pants trend??

Dickson thinks he's keeping it real wearing overalls because his grandparents have a farm. But we all know he was best friends with Steez Ortiz in highschool.

Anything to get rid of high waters. I don't see it catching on though... maybe if Dylan got a pair

As long as they've got the peek-a-boo flap on the bottom I think this is a wonderful new trend.

People have been skating Dickies for over 15 years. Is that a length of time where something can be considered a trend? You can't beat $20 skate pants that last forever. That's just good sense. Shit, people have skated in overalls off and on throughout the years too. But, they have always looked stupid.

You're right, people have been skating in Dickies for a long time. I was running them 13 years ago, myself. Only to pick them back up again just a few years ago.

The question is, have they been this prominent in skating before?? No. Pretty sure Dickies didn't have a skate team 15 years ago. And I'm pretty sure 9 outta 10 skaters weren't running them. And if they did have a team before, who was on?? Cause I don't remember them having a team. Haha

I kinda would like it if it didn't blow up. Would be weird to go to the skatepark and you had 3 different guys skating in overalls. I honestly don't know if I would skate in them.

The Antihero team circa early 90s called and they want their 'trend' back :-*

I could actually back the return of goofy boy, at least it's functional to skate in clothes that are easy to move in. Overalls are fine if you are in the barn or fixing your car or some shit but they seem like they would be uber annoying to be jumping around in. Then again, when has skate fashion ever been about function right?

marc j was getting some mileage outta tan dickeys and a white shirt 20 yrs ago. i had some 'bibs' w/ the ass blowed out. it's kinda fun to be dressed up as a giant osh kosh baby and people can get used to anything but i think it's a bad look. black kids usedta rock farmer jeans when i was in middle school. that mac demarco kid made em popular these days, a lot of his songs suck but he's like the 2nd coming of roddy piper so i guess he's ok.

By "Farmer jeans," are you talking about the jeans w/ the hammer loop and extra pockets?  Those were huge when I was in HS in NY.  I had a sweet Guess pair- size 38 no doubt.  Overalls seem kind of cool in theroy, but I think they would look stupid on almost all skaters.

nah, i'm keeping w/ the title of the thread. you've never heard of overalls being referred to as 'farmer jeans'? it's right up there w/ the pitchfork as far as farming stereotypes are concerned. they are the preferred legwear of 88% of scarecrows too.

as far as a team?  no. but skaters have been wearing dickies a lot longer than 15 years.  Probably more like 25.  when is the chain wallet coming back, that's what I wanna know.

I wouldn't consider overalls a trend, but if you want to get ahead of it you should rock the one strap down like they used to do when I was in middle school.  get a parker lewis haircut and bump some color me badd and you'll make sean pablo blush

I have a friend whose a Jon Dickson fanatic who wears overalls like every time I see him now. He's short and chubby so he looks like a Minion wearing em. It's pretty funny to see.
