I want some opinions on hip textiles from guys who don't know houndstooth from herringbone. Just picture a shirt or jacket made out of the following stuff and tell me what you think.

The first screams someone ironically dressing like it's the seventies. Like a derby hat made of that, with a tight corduroy leisure suit to go with it. The middle wouldn't go as a shirt, but a nice jacket, sure. The last reminds me of material for slacks.

1st pic would look good as a hat; also shorts.

2nd pic looks like a picture of my carpet :-/.

3rd pic looks like it would make a kickass coat (and no I don't mean suit jacket, although could obviously work for that).

1st pic, something a gal would wear in memory of Cobain (considering I'm from the Pacific Northwest).

2nd pic... fuck, and 3rd pic...? Hell if I know, I don't analyze clothing materials from 2 inches away.

1st looks like a blanket you would use at a relatives house when sleeping on their couch.

2nd looks like the same material they used to make office cubicle walls with.

i'd wear anything made with the 3rd material.

I've actually seen a jacket made from the madras; it's a bit much, though you can work it on a pair of shorts.

Second one is a safe bet.

I had a jacket made of the third. It was a Soviet army officer's jacket and it was a little bland looking. Might be able to make something like that work if it was tailored well though.

1st pic looks like some sort of hobo circus clowns overalls would be made out of. 2nd pic looks like cheep carpet used in a toddlers daycare facility. I guess it is cool cause if you shit your pants nobody would know. If the 3rd material was some sort of thin denim I would wear a pair of jeans made out of them.

I think you personally could carry off an Inverness or chesterfield or covert made of material two. The military drab would make a good half Norfolk blazer with military style pleated patch pockets and metal buttons.
No comment on the madras, i don't go for GTH it's too contrived like an 80s radio DJ trying to convince his audience he is zany.

1st pic would make a good vest. Could be a match to a bridesmaid's dress for a wedding or sumfin. Also, Kung Fu pajamas.
2nd pic... maybe trousers. I dunno, purple is kind of a hard sell these days I'm having trouble thinking of anything it could be used for.

You're not gay enough for vampire twink, and I know that. How do I know that?
Because you don't speak German. You've never once posted about your love of Moroccan architecture. You like rock music. I've never seen an example of mock-gothic calligraphy from you, and you don't have any angel tatoos.
