    Now you know where to find your Rocky Horror Picture Show duds.

    Oh, the horror.

    Yep.

    Looks like Tim Burton threw up in a techno club.

    To hell with the spats! Those are the least of your concerns! The whole darn outfits and the horrific way they wear their watches and chains is more nauseating to me!

    ...Although...

    ...after seeing that photo-shoot, I can now wear my watch and chain even more proudly and claim that they're coming back into fashion...

    Looks more like two tone high tops. I don't think they are spats.

    Yet there are no ties.

    Who in their right mind would want to walk up and down a runway looking like an emo clown?

    Matt, look again.

    You can see the understrap and the side buttons in a couple of the shots.

    All the articles are about the show online are describing them that way, too, not two-tone shoes.

    ...And what is with the lapel material hanging down over the crotch on some of those jackets and coats? It's a scarf effect without a scarf.

    Yes, Matt, the complete lack of neckwear is just... a vest without a shirt in some cases, I just...

    Gad.

    Extremes...

    Fashion shows are typically avant-garde, always pushing extremes. Having been involved in several, Designers are always delving into the past and then exploiting it to create a "buzz" for their clothing line.

    If spats make it to the midwest it will be a trend, otherwise it is just a passing fad.

    For that, you will die a horrible, horrible death.

    The Ninjas will be arriving shortly, to dispense the necessary justice.

    I would be happy enough if movies returned to that form, modern entertainment could use more musical numbers.

    As a lady who appreciates a well dressed fellow, or a unique dresser. I have always loved Sir Artful's costume. Thinking it was quaint and adorable. When men wear things mismatching in a natural way I luv it. However, THAT horrendous spectacle....well....I can see myself very quickly growing to hate aspects of fashion I currently love if it catches on.:rage:

    Honestly, I kind of do love it. But I have a thing for beat up top hats and I quite like the mixing of modern and vintage that's going on right now. I guess I'm just not much of a purist.

    Hmm, does this mean at least top hats are making a come back? Oh, but they all look horribly dressed anyway... :eek:

    Given the spirit of the times, I predict the Bill Sykes look is due for a revival:

    If so, spats will be the least of our worries...
