Rocker style (19)

1 Name: Anonymous Stylist : 2008-03-04 11:26 ID:LLipx0L+

OK I'm a slim guy. I love wearing my slim fit dark indigo unfaded jeans. Usually I just wear a nice fitting white t shirt with this and a tightish leather jacket, nothing overstated, but i look sort of old school rock n roll and I quite like that. I'm also getting some leather boots this week, but not biker boots; more formal ones than that. Sooo a rocker but who isn't dirty with beat up shoes.

One question is though, if I'm not wearing my leather jacket (e.g. when I'm indoors) my white shirt looks a bit dull. So what could I do to make my plain white t shirt a bit less boring. One thing I was thinking of is to get a t-shirt with a big print on the front, because I already have a couple of these. Or maybe get some kind of necklace to wear outside of the t-shirt. I have no idea what kind of necklace style would look good though, and also not make me look too much like a try-hard. Also, I just thought I might see about getting one of those leather cuffs you can wear as bracelets, to kinda make my upper half less boring. But again, any other suggestions for what to wear round my wrists? I currently have a silver armani watch, but to be honest it's not all that great. I'd rather get something a bit chunkier/manlier but with a wide leather strap. But until then, what do you guys/girls suggest? Also, rings don't really suit my fingers so unfortunately they are out unless I find something nice :(

Leather cuffs sound sexy.

OP here, think I'm going shopping with my friend this friday. My wrists are naturally quite skinny, so I will see if I can find cuffs that fit nicely - otherwise I just thought I could do something like wrap a bandana round my wrist, but so that it's fairly tight and without any excess hanging off getting in the way. And maybe find some cool rosemary type necklace to wrap round it as well. Thanks for telling me how sexy and cool I am ;)

What the fuck? You sound like you look like an idiot. The only people who dress like this are retarded men in their 40s and people going to a halloween party.

It happened. Not the most flattering picture, but you get the idea and I can't be bothered taking more.

I would just ignore those insulting statements. Actually, I wouldn't come to 4-ch for fashion advice in the first place. Your best bet would be hitting a fashion forum or just looking at some fashion pictures for ideas.

Thanks, know of any good fashion forums? Most of the ones I've seen either mix mens and womens topics in one forum (confusing, and hardly any mens topics) or don't have any mens advice at all. Mostly just looking for somewhere to lurk.

Wow, and I was kidding. But, they do help (and look nice and anonymous).


-Some kind of belt, probably black would be best. It'll probably be hidden by your shirt most of the time, but might be visible every now and then.

-A watch would probably help too. I think any black coloured or leather watch would work better than a silver one, but silver might work as well. Also, as you said, one with a wider strap.

-As you said, a large print tee might help as well, depending on the placement. I would recommend one with a light design, rather than one with a bold design.

-It's too easy to look like a poser with leather cuffs so I usually avoid them. Maybe you can pull it off without looking like a poser, though.

-I can't imagine a necklace looking good with the current style. But who knows, if you can pull it off maybe you'll "invent" a slightly new style!

That may not be smartest thing to do in certain neighborhoods

15 Name: 8 : 2008-03-11 11:01 ID:LU9in9jm

That's what I was thinking as well.

Bandanas can get kind of dangerous.

I recommend slightly smaller t-shirts; your arms are getting lost in the one pictured in >>9. A printed t is a fine thing, but if it's too big you'll look either dorky or wannabe gangster rather than rocker. You might consider a short-sleeved collared/buttoned shirt, too, perhaps in a western or work-shirt cut. Again, trim cut is key.

Necklaces are usually tacky on men; not recommended. A bandana is a fine idea, but I'd go with black rather than blue or red; no gang associations that I'm aware of.

I hear you can combine pink socks with anything. They're all the rage where I live.

Hey guys, thanks for the replies.


Sorry dude, thats very gay cowboy. And I'm neither gay or a cowboy. Although, for gang issues thats not a problem because I live in the UK - don't really see bandanas around here on rough kids, mostly just the young scene kids.

Yeah for a large print design I would choose to go with something monochrome rather than overloading it with colour print

Also, I feel you on the leather cuffs. Most of the ones I find are the kind young teenages wear, so don't really do anything for me. I've been trying to look round more expensive shops to see if they have any good quality wristwear, but haven't found anything good yet.


Yeah that shirt is not one of my favourites. Unfrotunately, the other white shirts I have are a good fit apart from the arms, which are varying degrees of looseness. Unfortunately if I go down a shirt size its too constrictive on some parts. I am putting on weight at the moment though, so my arms will fill out a bit so that should help. And yeah western shirts are something I've been looking at. Levis had a few good ones a while ago, slim fit - not so keen on having that kinda cowboy pattern though at the moment, would prefer something plain. This is mostly because I don't look manly when I wear a cowboy shirt, I look like I'm just off out to the gay bar.


I think I'll pass on that one.
