Please Don't Let It Get to Hammer Pants!!!

Its about time Blayne was booted from Project Runway. His assault on our eyes went way too far. He is not alone though. Hipster fashion has taken a particular turn for the worse as of late. The name of the band and the video above should be evidence enough that the neon gas aesthetic of 1990 has somehow begun to reinfiltrate modern style. WE NEED to fight back. I was watching Fast Times at Ridgemont High the other day and couldn't help but notice the way people were dressed was similar to about 5 years ago. Mike Damone's blazer with pins on the lapel was at Urban Outfitters about 4 years back, and all of the shorts are freely available at American Apparel. The movie was filmed in 1982. Using my post modern time translator that means we have about 4 years before the MC Hammer pants are sold at American Apparel. Maybe even sooner. American Apparel has announced Hyper Color will be sold by the end of the year. Please don't let this happen.

I see some resistance. Blayne was booted from Project Runway tonight possibly as a backlash to the "I love the late 80's early 90's" style influence (although he was most likely booted because his designs looked like someone rolled around in trash bin behind a Michaels). After exhausting most of the 80's, Hispters have began focusing on 1990. Yes, I know, it sucks. Lady Gaga is a great example of the utter disaster that is capable of occuring. It could be worse than a cataclysmic accident at the Atom Smasher. Lets all put our foot down and promise to not buy geometrically shaped sunglasses or peg our pants. It may be to late, but neon t-shirts should stay in Virginia Beach and Hollywood Montrose should stay in the Mannequin. I have a feeling this is coming from those west coast hipsters and we all know how I feel about L.A. Hipsters...
