    plaid shirt, jeans and boots is basically the default fashion for non California/NY men in North America, it will probably never go away

    millenial in the PNW here, i still dress this way as do many of my peers. its an extension of grunge style in a sense. the zoomer people wear loose raver kind of y2k style though

        He started this soi urban lumberjack trend tho. He literally invented hipsters and made Brooklyn cool.
        >sees “blue collar chic” revolutionary
        Where does he say it’s “revolutionary”? He’s just advising middle aged white guys on how/where to buy nice plaid shirts.

          He didn’t tho. He just likes to claim he does.
          This dude isn’t influential enough to shoulder a part of a worldwide trend let alone starting it on his own.
          Just look how dorky he looks in his blue collar chic of outfits.

    Flannels, jeans and boots will literally never go out of fashion. I’m 28 and live in Washington state and this is pretty much my everyday winter fit. The dudes in OPs pic look gay because they are

      yep this is the washingon native uniform. flannel, raw denim, and some boots.
      reliable way to tell who’s from here and who’s a tourist.

    I live in the upper midwest and most dudes unironically look "lumberjack core", when I’m not at work I just wear cargo pants with some kind of black metal shirt/hoodie.

    reminder if you don’t live in a city 80-90% of the rest of the country considers flannel shirts a staple no matter who wears them. Grandmas wear them to the store, young girls wear them, literally everyone wears them. If you are complaining about them you are a a city slicker.

        Most people who wear them arent trying to make a statement by wearing them. Its as common as a pair of jeans or chinos at this point across many walks of life. Get over it.

      Obviously flannels are pretty standard for most of the US but if you were paying attention when it was popular you’d know this style is more than just that. If you just look at the OP you can see there’s also some combination of raw denim in weird fits, "heritage" style boots, glasses, facial hair, beanies, and bodies clearly unused to physical labor (skinny/skinnyfat).

      plaid shirt, jeans and boots is basically the default fashion for non California/NY men in North America, it will probably never go away

      You can make an outfit with all three of these things that doesn’t stand out, but if you go outside it’s pretty obviously not the "default fashion" in the US.

        you just swap the boots out for full leather sneakers or non brightly colored lifestyle runners and it blends in a lot better than you’d think.

        correct
        three specific things make them look like gays:
        they’re wearing fashion style aggressively tapered slim jeans.
        they all have gay physiognomy. which is a thing, ai can predict if you’re gay from a face picture.
        and they all have a "never worked hard day in my life" physique,
        fix 2 of the above 3 and they look cool not gay,

    all the time, i’m a lumberjack who moved to residential construction.
    but i dress it down to a more streetwear style when i’m not at work see WAYWT.
    the trend started because fashion hipsters saw guys like me, realized how cool we look, and tried to copy it without realizing the man who fills out the clothes is half of the equation.
    i’m really glad it became a trend, there’s way more people making heritage clothes now, no complaints from me.

    its a fuzzy hard to describe line. dressing like a lumberjack either leaves you looking like a man’s man or a homosexual. you can’t be too well groomed. the whole thing’s been adopted by not only hipsters but also gays as well, my city even has a lumberjack themed gay bar: https://www.thelumberyardbar.com/

    the only people i ever knew who dressed like this irl were pushover dudes who were teetering on male feminist to impress the histrionics they worked with, smoked massive amounts of weed and were either extremely opinionated to the point of abrasive obnoxiousness or passive as heck because they were afraid of being judged. all of them drank craft microbrews and all of them smoked but didn’t buy prerolled cigarettes. some even used pipes. none of them had successful relationships because they were hecking lame and had no real unique identity of their own. many of the ones who were male feminist types actually treated women the worst out of all of them. almost all of them listened to midwestern folk emo shit despite only ever growing up in a city

    I live in the PNW, so while its not as popular in Portland proper, literally anywhere approaching rural will be a sea of flannel.

        do you understand relative comparisons, anon?
        I work downtown, and live in NE Portland, and I go days without seeing the jeans/flannel combo, even in wet cold weather.
        far more likely to see a tshirt with a carhartt jacket over it.
        you forget that Portland is made up of Bostonians, Chicagoans and Californians now, actual Portlanders are thinning out to outlying areas where, again, flannel is everywhere.

    >Do you know some people who still wear clothes like this?
    i live in Manchester NH and a lot of people dress like this especially from Autumn to early Spring–teenagers, druggies, laborers, normal people, students, teachers etc
