americans who wear diesel jeans!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
hi.

i live in korea and i'm going to college in the states this year.

my question is that i have not seen many americans wear tight

jeans such as thanaz, thaye, etc.

so if i wear poiaks, darrons, - slim jeans, would i be treated as

gay or weird freak?


korea and the states have both very different culture, and i just

wonder how americans think of wearing tight jeans. (not

skinny tight, little bit tight.)


p.s. when i was in america (2000-2003), people wore big jeans which

looked VERY comfortable showing their ass. but diesel jeans especially

darron, poiak, safados are not very comfy jeans but rather tight.

would i be treated gay if i wear those?

wear what you like and what you're comfortable with and don't care about what people could think of your sexual orientation

If you really, really care what these strangers think, from what I see living in the states the tight jean trend has caught on, many kids are buying skating jeans such as volcom, altomont, ect.. (which are quite tight), I supose they are "in" so I supose you should be alright. lol, this topic is pretty funny.

As a Korean American, I kinda understand where Ur coming from...
Unlike Korea & other "Fashion-Forward" Asian/European countries, In the US majority of people (about 99% of the people) don't really care what they wear & majority of those people (again 99% of those 99% of people who wear whatever) think that most people who dress nicely are GAY (there's some truth in this though). But not so much in major cities (NYC, LA, SF...etc).

I also think this comes from individualism & cultural difference. In Korea, people have similar interests & life style (huge effect on fashion). Pretty much all college students & young adults (I bet around +90%) like animation, computer games, soccer & MMA cage fighting. & they all like to dress well. Or at least try to dress well. Plus Koreans pay ALOT more attention than Americans on what others might think of him/herself. I think this has it's advantage, such as being a hard worker & keeping a good reputation. But I think it also has disadvantages such as not being able to make one's own decision/s & building one's own character. Even when it comes to "what should I wear?" or "What really look good on me?"

So my point is:

To be honest with you not many people will understand or appreciate high fashion in this country. I guess only about 1% of the whole US population are considered fashion forward (myself excluded). But wear what you want. Wear what you think look good on you & don't go back to A&F, America Eagle, GAP (typical average college gear) just because people might think you are GAY rocking Ur Thanaz.

If you look gay you can counter by banging a lot of chicks.

ok, an attempt to give you a serious answer: you can and should wear whatever you would like to wear. How you will be viewed will depend on where you go. What city/state are you moving to? In NYC, California, etc, you will not have any problems. In places that are less aware of fashion, you will probably stand out.

What conclusions people draw will depend on where you are. Where I am (a college town), there are a lot of foreign Asian students, and they all dress the way they would at home. The end result is that they look recognizably "FOBby" because their style of dress is the style from back home. There's nothing wrong with it; the only result is that people can tell they are not originally from the U.S.

If you go someplace where no one wears designer clothes or tight clothes, then you may run into problems with people making assumptions or questioning your style.

omg,
thank you for your detailed and kind answer
well, as you said, people in korea are very fashion-forwarded, and there
are always 'trends' every season which i don't like.
i wear what i want to wear in korea, but america is a totally new place for me
so i was kinda worried. anyway, thank you for your help

p.s. i'm going to Iowa where they have no diesel stores..

oh thank you for your answer.
well, i'm a foreigner and i was just concerning almost every possible
different things between korea and US.
actually, living home country at all of a sudden and adjusting to a totally
new culture, language, people, is very nervous.

i guess i will buy more of diesel jeans when i get to US.
In korea, diesel jeans are nearly $500.00 in stores.
US is way cheaper so i guess i will enjoy shopping diesel while my college years

SFAM is seven for all mankind.

and drool in her context means to 'like' or be 'attracted' to... or u can refer to it as a person being 'yummy' haha

Dude hes not the 10th asian guy. He IS that asian guy. But to answer your question. Wear what you like, do what you like. Just because you 'appear' to fit into a certain stereotype, it doesn't mean you have to act according to the stereotype. I think a lot of people FAIL to understand this. No matter how you dress or look like, you should still be yourself.
