Discussion on which modern day clothing would still fill the Post Punk / New Wave clothing style, Attempting to give a change to my wardrobe.
this thread needs more hooligan inspired scandinavians
oh, but we haven't even started yet boys
what compels you to shitpost in this thread, of all places? did a girl dressed in this fashion beat you up or something? I mean we rarely have these threads, they're totally innocent. what is your problem
tbqf those pictures is what post punk looks like in 2016, the whole thing with being dressed in really flashy clothing died quite fast and was overtaken by conservative clothing as a reaction against regular punk
i just hate trashy pseudo-goths and prefer bands that look like people who bullied said people in high school
alright last one then you can keep posting your clowns
You all not only have shit taste in fashion, but music as well
ok, sure. but this is a fashion thread. on a fashion board. you massive retard. this thread isn't "bands who make vaguely post-punk inspired music but dress like your normal everyday lad". read the thread title again, dipshit
>wahhh they insulted my shoes
>get called out for buzzwording
>BETTER BUZZWORD SOME MORE
i agree that this is a fashion board and fashion is separate from music. I would argue however that post punk is a form of subculture which has different forms and the modern appearance of this subculture is based on conservative and skinhead/casual looks.
I'd be happy if both sides were represented since this thread wasn't posted as "early 80's goth inspo"
all the other pictures posted fall into the "New Wave / Goth" category, and if you had read the OP you'd know that was part of the thread too
now my question is, why you are in a post-punk thread if you clearly have no idea about it?
Yeah that's what i meant, was referring to the early bands like siouxsie and the banshees and the lot which later became known as goth music. Some of the early bands still had a bit of a punk aesthetic left that died once the movement really started
I actually got my inspo from post-punk and early goth rock styles, which made me end up going for a "minimalist" style where I mainly just wear slim black jeans and fitted black t-shirts with whatever jacket I decide to wear and thrift shop dress boots.
OP here, honestly I'm trying to go for a Robert Smith, Siouxsie Sioux type style, just thought I should clear the air, May have misplaced words for the title..
Alright so back to the fashion, What kind of clothes are we trying to find, I suppose if you want a Robert Smith look, if you want loose fit stuff I would suggest sizing up, I think others could supply more help then myself.
the term post punk has a tendency to get people riled up.
I'm trying to think how a modern Robert Smith would look, might wanna get a bit less huge hairdo since Robert lived in the 80's when all hair was huge so it wasn't as weird, also oversized Ts and dress shirts are a must
>the term post-punk has a tendency to get people riled up.
Why? What's wrong with post punk?
Nothing wrong with national socialism inspired style tbqh familiae
in terms of music, you're right (mostly. goth developed alongside post-punk, not directly FROM it)
I was talking about fashion styles. if you're going to post goth, you'd specifically say "goth" not post-punk. no one would know what you're talking about
This beautiful man.
I was posting that picture ironically though that's not one of his best fits IMO
Lmao by 1979 post punk was already a thing, Joy Division didnt pioneer shit (they did create a very unique sound though)
Also, The Cure and Siouxsie were also already a thing by 1979 and probably already labeled goth
modern post punk looks aren't just skinhead but it's heavily inspired by skinhead style
Hate to use this clicheed image but it shows quite well what moden post punk dress is.
why don't we just fucking call these threads "musicians dressed in ladcore"?
so? associations can change. fedoras used to be associated with detectives, and just fashionable men in general.
that doesn't make it any more relevant, why the fuck would you think to post teddy boys in this thread?
