...there was, apparently, the "I'm a Giant Dick" line of clothing.

Apple users still typically look like this
I like the "I'm a golfer, don't ******** with me!!" look sported in the first photo
Two words for the guy on the right -
what's up with the frumpy chick in the second pic?
is the insinuation that douches like frumpy poorly dressed girls?
That's how girls dressed in the early 90s. I've heard a pop culture expert-y person credit the shift in women's clothing, from baggy t-shirts and jeans to Mariah Carey's tight tank tops and tighter jeans, and I think he's right.
The Eighties started the trend, all those layers. The early Madonna thrift store look.
We collectively owe much to Mariah Carey.
whatever or whoever the reason for the shift, I wholeheartedly approve!
The funny thing of course is that you're supposed to be heated up by that pic, the idea of the ad being to showcase hot-looking people wearing hot looking clothes.
Instead you are saying "Wow I'd like to get a decent look at that babe, can we get rid of those awful Apple clothes and put her in something tight, please?"
In, say, 1989, you could watch a movie that was made in 1974 and set in 1974 and immediately tell it was from the mid 70s due to the clothes and hair. In 1999, you could watch a 1984 movie and immediately tell it was from the mid 80s.
But today, you can watch a movie made in 1995 or 2003 or 2009, and to my eye, the clothes and hairstyles look pretty much the same (so long as the 1995 movie isn't about the grunge scene.) It's kinda weird, but it seems like mass pop culture wrt hair and clothes are pretty much in a rut.
Be the change you want to see.
You know you want to rock that RatTail--Make it Happen!
Either the RatTail or the Mullet were the ultimate blue collar haircut. Not sure which. A draw, I suppose.
Well, if you look at black cinema, the changes are pretty obvious. Also, teen fashion - today's look is less baggy, cleaner lines. Same if you look at boy bands.
For white adults, the changes are more subtle, and your point stands. Still, you can't not look at these and not think '90s:
3 of the biggest movies from 1999:
I think the point stands.
I've always hated her and now I even have more reason to do so.
I can see your point, and maybe it's because I'm young, but I've always thought that you can see the differences. It's more subtle as mentioned, but it always has been. In the early to mid 2000s, it was common for guys to have long hair and wear tight pants. Same goes for dressing like a gangster rapper. Mid to late 2000s, the douchebag look was the striped shirt and hair gelled to look like it was in a convertible.
Now, I'm seeing influences from Mad Men being implemented when it comes to fashion.
But it's more common now for people to mix and mash styles.
Also, Crimen, that scene from Big Daddy, the girls has a very late 90s look. Just looking at the girl's hair I could tell it's from the late 90s.
And Adam Sandler's close-cropped hair (the E.R.-era Clooney-influenced Caesar) and the undershirt/roundneck sweater thing are a 90's look.
Maybe the 80's just scared everyone straight.
I still see way too many men - grown ass men, not just kids - with those stupid baggy jeans. I guess I'm old but I'll never get why it's cool or attractive to have the crotch of your pants somewhere down by your knees and the waist past your ass. I get that kids do stupid things and wear stupid things in part to irritate old people. I really do get that. But for ********'s sake, it's been going on for years and years now. Please, youth of America, find something new to irritate me with.
Grown men sporting that look have no excuse - they just look like idiots.
A decent clothes app hadn't been invented yet.
What's more disturbing is that Bill Gates' haircut hasn't really changed over time
I was just looking at pix of me and my college aged friends from the mid-90's and I gotta say I disagree.
At the time we thought we had severed ties w/ the '80s, but the truth is that the change was more gradual than we thought. I'm w/ Kazuma on this one.
Like I said, I can see Dave's point but I don't agree with it. Look at a movie from the early 80s, then compare it to one from the late 80s. The early 80s, you can see bits of the 70s style. Early 90s, bits of the 80s.
Hell, the best example of this is Mad Men. Especially the early seasons. People think that the entire 60s was all hippies, but they didn't pop up till the mid to late 60s. Watching the early seasons one would think it was set in the 50s were it not for certain events being referenced.
I think even the most fashion-deaf among us can watch a Beverly Hills 90210 episode and instantly recognize early/mid-90s touchstones.
The Mac's you still had to boot up with a 5.5 floppy
Come on Barbara, if Mariah Carey took us away from that she can't be all bad.
