Why I don’t wear Plaid
This could be one of my silly New Year’s Resolution.
Not to wear Plaid. Even if there is a sale.
Fashion comes and goes.
I must have missed this fashion trend.
When did Plaid make a comeback?
I noticed like around 2010 that people have been wearing them.
Even some of the American stores like Target, Gap, Old Navy and Sears featured a commercials about Plaid.
Everywhere I see guys and girls are wearing them.
Where does people buy them at?
I know one is Value Village.
So I ask what is it about Plaid that you like wearing them?
I for one would never want to wear them.
Not trying to be anti Plaid, its just not my thing.
A chinese guy like me would look really awkward wearing them.
I did had one like when “Grunge” was popular in its hay-day.
Somehow I felt weird wearing since no other Asian people wore it back then.
There are some Asian people who can pull off wearing them.
Wearing them now, I would feel like going out to the wild west or trying to be a poseur.
Now these days I like to wear something more conventional.
Clothes that you can find at Gap, H&M and Old Navy.
Like sweater, jeans and t-shirt.
I find the prices for them are kind of outrageous if you go to Urban Outfitters.
Or very reasonable price a la Walmart.
I am no one to judge.
So its your fashion choice on what you like to wear.
Its mostly myself, on what I like to wear and feel comfortable.
So I ask, why do you like to wear them.
Don’t say its a hipster thing.
