    Let me explain: a few years ago I was ridiculed by a few colleagues for wearing black leather ankle boots. They were smart because they were so simple, so I felt justified in wearing them under simple plain work trousers. I also used to genuinely ride a motorbike so needed something sturdy to wear whilst riding.

    And now - everyone is wearing biker boots!

    I just can't believe I had the mick taken out of me when it was uncommon, and now everyone's doing it, it's suddenly ok. :rolleyes:

    The same thing happened with waistcoats. They became really popular recently (not so much now) and I got annoyed because I had friends take the mick when I wore one as a teenager - it was fitted and simple but my friends laughed that I looked like a snooker player. :lol:

    The point of my rant? Has this happened to you? Been ridiculed for wearing something and then it turns into a ridiculously over-subscribed trend?

    I won't complain about being unique. I don't believe anyone is truely unique, but this sheep mentality within fashion is pretty telling. :rolleyes:
    well not me personally, but a guy I knew used to wear the arab keffiyeh with that distinctive pattern and people took the mick. soon later it had its time in the fashion spotlight

    Think of it as a gift, you are able to predict fashion before it's time.
