the white ones in art bars are pretty egregious. Shimizu rocks flares in that video too if I remember, but kinda pulls it off if that's possible

Iíll watch Shimizu in some bell bottoms all day.  He could be dressed as a Hare Krishna and still look cool.

He wore bootcut pretty much all of his thatís life, cataclysmic abyss and prevent this tragedy parts. Someone mentioned Daniel Shimizu for bootcut podium, I agree.

The violet dudes wearing them looks weird because it doesnít fit with their skating, footage or other clothes but maybe that will change. For now IĎd like them
to stick to supreme logos and the silver tabs/big boys they were wearing a second ago. Fits right in with their dunks and strobeck clips. Itís just like the Banquet chicken nuggets from Walmart, I know what Iím in for every time.

Unless youíre some Coachella attending high school girl who just found out about Fleetwood Mac and wants to be Stevie Nicks, you have no reason to wear bell bottoms

The flares/look isn't even that crazy btw.

Dill was mobbing around NYC with spray painted shoes and capris back in Y2K.

Shits goofy AF

Fun fact: we call it  goofy stance because of a clip of goofy surfing from the late 50s .

Clearly a byproduct of when the tide turns from baggy pants back to slim-fit, while still being attached to puffy shoes for some reason. I think early 2000's popular opinion was that the bigger your feet, the bigger your meat, and a lot of dudes were reallllly holding onto that puffiness even when it came time to go rocker. Like they needed some nut huggers to match the trucker hat and studded belt but couldn't come to grips with how small their size 7.5 feet looked in Vans authentics so they started cutting / flaring their jeans thinking no one would notice. Crazy nobody has mentioned rocker era Koston in this thread. The absolute worst.










I do remember that Koston era, it sucked  ;D looking for photos I figured it was mainly 2003-2004, by 2005 he was short haired/beard Koston.
I thought this Koston phase was longer in time but he was everywhere in those post-yeah-right years.

blame it on JNCO's coming back in a less ironic way
I've seen skaters rocking flares/bell bottoms in LA for more than a couple of months now.

if you pay attention to NY street fashion, you'd see that this is definitely on the way in and I imagine will rise in popularity over the next year.
nevermind the 20 year rule, what about the 50 year rule?

Will this trickle into the general public?  How should I be prepping?

I guess it depends on if your definition of the general public is non-skateboarders or normies.
It's already a thing in the fashion world so that's why its maybe not as surprising to see skaters with crossover starting to wear them.

I'm not advocating for the trend, just relaying what I've seen.

Trung definitely fucks with some bootcuts. Maybe Dashawn will start rocking bootcuts with his belly shirts. I appreciate people trying to be a little different, but I always shudder at BCs. I'd rather see someone just go full bellbottom.

Trung's got that wild style; Bass Pro shop x BMX/JD/street gang gloves x Def Leppard in 1987 levels of rips and holes in bootcut jeans x vintage Y2K Rowley Vans. I would never, but I like that he does.

That whole Late Nite Stars crew has their own thing going, which I appreciate. My buddy said Zak Anders has "school shooter" style.

Yep, but more Combat Rock and Cut the Crap than London Calling and Sandinista!. Just needs the shades, torn sleeveless button-up, and boom box.

"And your girlfriend sweet little seventeen
She's got her layered hair, and her flared jeans
You know what that means?
She's just a little queen"

Also, honorable mention for

"You go and sleep with your mother, she hates your guts
She knows that you love her so she holds you tight
All through the night, until the broad daylight
And when she doesn't come home you have to sleep alone
Then you wet your bed, and I think that's sad"
Hopefully not a kook, but if so, fuck it.

It's weird. These kids all rock clothing that's similar to me and my old ass friends. It happens every like 9-5 years or so. Seems to be speeding up now. A sign that we're circling the drain faster maybe.

We all in this together in the end. Doesn't matter what pants you got on at all. Myself I like custom fits. The kind you gotta do at home with your pants flipped inside out.
