Teach a millenial how to embrace looser fits?

I grew absolutely indoctrinated that eVerYthIng mUSt Be FiTTed and you should always go for skinny and slim fits. I tell my tailor get it at tight as possible.

Obviously the trend now is the opposite. How do you embrace the bagginess?

    It still has to fit you properly. Look at how it falls on you/what silhouette it gives you and decide if that’s what you’re going for.

      Skinny/Slim looks bad on everyone. There may be some people who are so hot that their "bad" is still somewhat ok, but in general, more flowing cuts are more flatting to literally everyone.

        it’s not about skinny/slim fits, it’s about showing fitness – simplified example would be cylindrical dress (dunno how it’s called in english) as prime example of flowing cut – you can’t tell what body is underneath at all. But if fit person adds belt it will look better because the narrowing will show the waist size.

        The fact that I like his quote doesn’t mean I condone his work.
        He is hit or miss, disregarding his most alien looking pieces which are just art and aren’t actually wearable fashion, you’ll notice that all his good stuff actually showcases the physique, whether it uses drape or not.

          Yeah, which furthers my point that slim =/ universally flattering for fit physiques

            those are skinny’s not slims. slim means no taper.
            why should anybody take fashion advice from a guy who doesn’t even know what the things he’s talking about are? you’re figuring it out as you go, and that’s fine, but your advice has no value.

    Haha I had the same thing happen. I taught myself to sew, and then proceeded to turn each and every one of my dress shirts into these chest-hugging monstrosities straight from the 70s. This was also while I was started into /fit/, and was too obsessed with showing off gains.

      35 yeah old millennial here, I feel this as well. I cannot do any pants that aren’t a slim fit. I have long since abandoned the 2009 super skinny look, but the baggy 1990s pants with loose material just dangling around you shoes is awful. If you’re the least bit fit and attractive you want that to show with slim fit clothing, not this baggy, boxy, shapeless stuff. Maybe I’m just old, but I don’t see myself ever moving away from slim and tailored fits.

      Same reason I stick with slim fit. Plus I’m 5’8" so I feel like wider clothes just highlight how short I am.

      There’s a trend among zoomers where being """intentionally""" stupid is cool.
      They basically brought back the 90s philosophy where being smart is uncool and cool people disregard intelligence.

      • Anonymous says:

        The 90s version was against effort: being smart means you were trying too hard, which was uncool. The modern version is being deliberately and outwardly stupid and clownish, because taking anything seriously at all is "cringe". See: zoomers at concerts

      My female cousin done that look on the left once (didn’t show any undergarments though) and I told her that’s what my shirt does when I get done using a urinal and pull my pants back up.
      She stopped doing that afterwards lol.

    If you’re an actual millennial not just gen z thinking once you’re 25 you’re now a millennial because they don’t understand math or generations and only understand gender ideology bullshit

    Then you wore loose clothing from about 1994-2008

    clothes that are tailored to be fitted look the best on people whether its in style or not. go for this. it’s timeless. so instead of wearing super skinny (def should’ve abandoned this by now) or skinny go for fitted (one level up from skinny and tailored to your individual body).
    also get cargo joggers, they’re a great way to update your style to the contemporary (joggers and cargos) without going real baggy. joggers are slim at the base and moderate at the waist. so they’re a great "transition" piece for millennials for updating ourselves to what’s in style.

    also you must be the last millennial (born 1995)

    Looser fits doesn’t mean 90s hiphop "wear my older bros big baggy pants while he’s in prison" baggy. It could just mean wear some normal straight-leg pants. It’s just the classic, least-trendy fit.

    I’m an elder millenial myself. If you can’t enjoy looser pants just for the variety, you are just a very basic person following what you grew up in.

          This is what millennial fashion was like in the 2009 to 2013 era. This was the era of peak hipsterdom, the blog era (pitchfork, the hypemachine, makeoutclub, or cobrasnake), the era of ironic fashion. For most millennials this was post highschool when they were in university or recent grads. Indiesleaze and slutwave were defining styles for a lot of women. People were going to house party raves and listening to electro bangers.

          Almost everything about this photo is millennial fashion from 2003 through 2008, aka millennial higschool fashion

          >baggy t shirt with album art
          highschool millennials were wearing this, the bands tees were numetal (slipknot, korn, system of a down, tool, etc)

          >ugly 90s sweater
          This is more of a gen x thing, for millennials the 90s was childhood so you were wearing whatever your parents go you

          >tapered sweatpants or baggy jeans
          all jeans were baggy from the 90s to the ends of the 2000s by default. Millennials were raised in the 90s when popular consensus was anything tight/slim/formfitting was ‘gay’, and that was bad. Skinny jeans didn’t become a thing until the end of the 2000s, and even then it was mostly emo/screamo, scenester kids wearing them. The popularity of this niche, even at its peak, its greatly overexaggerated on the internet by zoomers. Popular mainstream fashion was not the My Chemical Romance, Underoath, eyeliner Greenday scene.

          Tapered sweatpants wasn’t a thing though. The only people wearing sweatpants in public were adults with developmental disorders or registered sex offenders.

          >hair like this
          In the mid 2000s every single npc white guy had this hair, but we called it ‘hockey hair’ or a ‘shag’. This was literally the most generic white teenager hair, look at every single American Eagle advertisement or any white guy in an average rock band.

            >white sneakers, intentionally dirty
            I had these exact Adidas superstars “shelltoes” in highschool, as did pretty much everyone else. I even had the reverse colorway, black with white stripes. These shoes have been consistently popular since they came out in the 1970s, RUN DMC was wearing these and made a song about it decades prior. All our shoes were dirty back then because people actually wore the things that they bought. The zoomer culture of buying shoes as a flex and then never wearing them wasn’t a thing, people bought cool shoes and wore them everyday because they were cool. Also, don’t even get me started on Air Force Ones or Dunks. Every single rapper in the 2000s was wearing Air Force Ones, Nelly literally made a song called Air Force Ones and MTV banned it from airplay because it was considered a commercial.

            >disposable vape
            If millennials smoked, it was cigarettes or weed out of shitty pipe, maybe a pop can.

            >cuban chain from shein
            Every guy that wanted to look like a rapper was buying shitty silver chains from a kiosk at the mall. Bonus points if you bought a stupid pendant (Roughriders R logo, maybe a cross) to go with it. It’s real silver though bro, look if you scratch it on a piece of paper it leaves a mark.

            >glasses looked like this
            Never had glasses because I’m not genetically weak, can’t comment.

            It’s hilarious to me that kids born in 2002 are going on the internet and acting like they “discovered” or “invented” all this fashion, when it’s literally just a rehash of what millennial teens were doing in the 2000s. The internet has an essentially limitless amount of information available to you, but it doesn’t matter since you can’t read. Go do a funny dance tiktok brain.

    I’m 27. I remember autistically not really understanding fashion in middle school/early high school and just wearing comfortable clothes regardless of appearance – usually purchased at Kohls. Typical outfit was usually relaxed fit jeans, oversized dad rock tees, and DC skate shoes. Looked awful then but would probably kill with zoomers/gen A now.

    32yo millenial here, was all-in on the slim-skinny fit because manlet so big clothes just makes me look like a child drowning in baggy fabric (aka the current Zoomer look)

    I still cannot get myself to wear loose pants. Slightly looser tops, sure, show off them wide shoulders, but heck I can’t look like a bottom-heavy man-pear abomination

    Most Zoomer girls I see doing the tank top + baggy pants thing looks bad. IMO they’re just hiding their developing belly and fat calves and shit because obesity has skyrocketed even in kids–disgusting.

    I am a doctor and high-ranking in my organization so I cannot look like a wannabe child 15yo. When I go on dates with Zoomer women (rare) it’s obvious there’s a generational divide. They say shit like their style is "maximalism" whereas I’m basically minimalism.

    I go to the luxury mall near me and I see even 40yo women trying to fit into the modern Zoomer girl style with the baggy jeans, shit’s just cringe.

    Once you reach 30+ (adult age) you have to conform somewhat to society’s expectations of where you fit in. Imagine your doctor is trying to look like a teenager, it would be silly and "cringe" as heck no cap frfr ongod

      >Once you reach 30+ (adult age) you have to conform somewhat to society’s expectations of where you fit in.
      Is this post a weird LARP from some high school kid? I’m in my 30s and every friend of mine in their 30s increasingly doesn’t care about what society wants them to do. They especially don’t care about what society wants them to wear. Boomers and beyond really don’t give a shit about clothing. Life is too short to care about any of that. Sure, there’s professional attire but that’ll be explicitly outlined and once you meet the bare minimum nobody cares.

      Also, "adult age = 30" or any gate keeping of adulthood is stupid as heck and makes me think you’re a child. Who the heck cares if others think you’re an adult or not? Who goes around saying, "You’re not a real adult yet"? What does that do aside from project an inferiority complex? Being an adult doesn’t make you special. This is what a child thinks an adult thinks about. The concept of "adulthood" is meaningless to gatekeep once you are on your own and nobody actually independent gives a heck about some arbitrary age cut off for "real adulthood".
