The importance of looks in the worldwide European-folk preservation world




If we look at various groups in the worldwide European-folk preservation world and compare them to each other, it seems obvious that their style of look is as different as they are many. The perhaps most popular look is the skinhead look, second to that there are the "normal look" and the 1920-1945 fascist and National Socialist look and then also the Viking/ancient look. I will in this article tell of how I see these looks and how I think about them.

The skinhead look most often involves a shaved head, tattoos, a bomber jacket, jeans, and army style boots. This to me is a very crude, unsophisticated look that makes these racialists who adhere to the skinhead sub-culture look like street punks. Skinheads often seem to have Third Reich and/or pagan symbols on their clothing and skin (as tattoos). I think the magnificent symbols of the Third Reich and the interesting meaningful symbols of our pre-Christian past do not belong on skinhead-type clothing. I think the symbols that often stand for discipline, honor and wisdom do not go with the street-punk-style of the clothing and they do not go with the chaotic street-punk behavior the skinhead so often seems to show. I think the overall skinhead style is bad, it is silly and those who dress like it look like they are anti-social, uneducated, unintelligent and full of emotions they can not express by other ways than dressing in a crude way and behaving violently. I think racialists into the skinhead sub-culture should reconsider their style and seek to dress in a more aesthetically appealing manner, and they should at least stop using symbols of the past which stood for discipline, honor and wisdom as their insignia.

The normal clothing look is a look which does not seem out of place in everyday materialist working and/or middle class society. The pro of the normal look is that racialists into that style do not draw unwanted attention nor do they seem anti-social. But the flaws are that the clothing in the normal style is often manufactured by judeo-capitalist company’s which use dishonorable measures in manufacturing and selling their clothing. Normal clothing is often manufactured in third world countries, the manufacturing method may be harmful to the environment and the look of the clothing may often seem aesthetically degenerate. Normal clothing may often have large corporate logos and I think the normal-style-look can make the racialists who adhere to it seem like uninteresting everyday people who go with the flow and it may even make them look unsophisticated slaves of the demo/plutocratic system. I think racialists into the normal style should reconsider their style and seek to dress in a more aesthetically appealing manner, and they should at least stop dressing in clothing sold by companies which manufacture in third world countries, put corporate logos on the clothing and/or adhere to some counter-honorable/productive activity.

The 1920-1945 fascist and National Socialist look often involves short-cut hair, shaved face, and then a military or party-member uniform from axis countries in Europe 1920-1945. This look may often seem sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing. Yet in today’s modern society it may seem very out of place and the racialist who adheres to this style may draw to him unnecessary attention, seem like someone who "lives in the past". Often the uniforms of 1920-1945 were only allowed to be used by people who had gained special ranks and/or passed certain tests, whether they are militaristic or political. So a white racialist today dressing as say perhaps an SS officer would be dishonoring the real SS officers of the Third Reich by dressing in their clothing without having gone through their training and or military trials. This style may involve using replicas of symbols and/or badges/crosses and/or other insignia which was gained by surviving in battle or by political activism, and in most cases the modern racialist who uses these symbols or badges/crosses on his clothing has not survived battle nor been awarded by some movement for activism. I think racialists into the 1920-1945 fascist and National Socialist look should reconsider their style and seek to dress in a manner more suited for today’s world, and they should at least stop dressing in clothing which was only suited for people which had gained the rank/status to dress that way.

The Viking/ancient look is a look in which racialists seek to look like a member of a people in some ancient time, be it the Viking era, ancient Greece, Rome, medieval times or some other time which is now passed. This style may often seem interesting, maybe even aesthetically pleasing, yet also it may seem silly and very much out of place in today’s modern society and the racialist who adheres to this style may draw to him unnecessary attention and/or seem like someone who "lives in the past". I think many racialists who are into the style of ancient-looking leather clothing do not hunt the animals themselves which are used to make the clothing. Often the material used for making the ancient-style look is fake stuff manufactured by factories, instead of made-at-home or at the local blacksmith or leather sewer. I think racialists into the Viking/ancient look should reconsider their style and seek to dress in a manner more suited for today’s world, and they should at least stop dressing in clothing which is made to look like the clothing people of ancient times made themselves, but is in fact factory made and sold at the local "Dungeons & Dragons store".

Now I think I have covered the most popular styles of the racialist movement, but other sub-cultural styles which can be mentioned are the metalhead look, the artistic/avant-garde look, the suit&tie look and perhaps the geek/nerd look. All these styles also have their advantages and disadvantages but in general are unsuitable for our time and vision.

One may wonder if these above mentioned looks are all unsuitable for people in the worldwide European-folk preservation world, what look is then suitable. I wonder also. I think the look of a member of the worldwide European-folk preservation world should be aesthetically pleasing, neat and sophisticated looking and based on classical yet futuristic ideas. I think the various different groups of the worldwide European-folk preservation world, should seek to minimize their sub-cultural-style tendencies and work together to create a style that makes them look united.

Looks are very important to people, consciously and subconsciously, weather they would like to admit it or not. Different styles are used by different people to express different views and backgrounds. The style of a persons look affects their lives much more than most people realize. Looks influence people in deciding in who is friend or foe. Many people of ancient civilizations realized this and spent much effort to control how they looked and to make their look serve its purpose. The National Socialist of the Third Reich knew this and understood the importance of clothing. For example the uniforms of the SS were designed to intimidate while being sophisticated, aesthetically appealing and having practical military purpose. I hope as many as possible members of the worldwide European-folk preservation world realize this also and use it to their advantage.

----

Now vote on which style you belong to. If you belong some other style, describe it. Also, please present your ideas of an ideal style for the peoples of the worldwide European-folk preservation world.

Ha ha, I am not too stylish, blue jeans and tennis shoes, with sweatshirts in the winter, and the "Australian-style" sleeveless t-shirts that were popular 20 years ago in the summer.:cool:

But I have taken to wearing the Danish "Ecco" shoes a lot the last few years, pricey as heck but last a long time and have the great arch support my flat feet need:viking3:

Although my snow-shoveling ensemble includes Soviet navy officers hat and Soviet army parade boots, looked down on in Russia I know, but popular in the USA.:D

i prefer a conservative look: shirts, cord trousers and -cloaks, a hat when i feel lucky.

the only exception is the shoes, there i go for sneakers because everything else is too time-consuming:laugh:

military look is nifty, too, but since most leftists wear military clothes and i don't want to be associated with them, sadly it's not an option.

Usually band-tshirts and the like, comfortingly loose, black ragged and holey jeans, only two and a half years old but still both knees and buttocks have air conditioning in the true style of speed metal band posing. ;)

As for shoes, Finnish M91 army boots are my favourites for all-around walking, but for hot weather I prefer my flat sneakers, just basic and comfy.

I also have a black trench coat which is quite useful when it rains, as it covers quite a lot of body. No lining though, so it doesn't warm at all during winter but more than enough under full sunlight. It's stylish although not very flexible (you can't wave arms very freely wearing it).

Overall, I tend to wear the same clothes for a long time. I might buy a new band-shirt every now and then if I happen to come across a particularly appealing one. I'm definitely not after fashion, as you can probably guess from my outfit.

I once tried to get a discussion about his going in the chat.

I basically wear jeans and t-shirts where-ever I go. I'm used to Levi's 501's (yes, yes, I know) so they are my favourites, but I like other Levi's jeans as well. Besides Levi's, Adidas is the only brand I have any loyalty to; mostly because their clothes are classy, not too trendy (meaning you can wear them for more than two weeks) and out of all the Addy gear I've had through the years none has let me down or proven to be poor.

During winter I wear a wool sweater or hooded (Adidas) sweater over my t-shirt, and army boots or DM's on my feet. In summertime I'll wear Adidas "gazelle" trainers and a jeans jacket over my t-shirt if necessary.

I'd rather place a noose than a tie around my neck.

I do have some clothes by brands that are considered "racist"; I have a few Thor Steinar T's, a couple of pairs of DM's, a Fred Perry jacket, and a pilot jacket (unfortunately not a genuine Alpha Industries one, but a cheap imitation, so I really can't wear it to any occasions where such things are important).

Anyway, I find it a bit silly for people in countries like Finland to imitate the style of patriots in another country. Logically, Finnish racists should wear Jokapoika shirts by Marimekko and Jalas shoes ;)

Usually I wear dark colours and sweat- and t-shirts without print.
The only brand clothes I wear are from Trigema which is a German manufacter that only produces in Germany.
Otherwise I consider brand-fetishim utterly ridiculous, especially when it comes to so called "nationalist brands" like Consdaple, Thor Steinar etc.

They don´t manufacture shoes. Mostly t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Im Gegensatz zum allgemeinen Trend in der deutschen Textilindustrie, die Produktion in Billiglohnländer zu verlagern, setzt TRIGEMA konsequent auf den Produktionsstandort Deutschland.

Seit über 35 Jahren gibt es weder Kurzarbeit noch Entlassungen wegen Arbeitsmangel und den Kindern der Mitarbeiter wird ein Arbeits- oder Ausbildungsplatz nach dem Schulabgang garantiert. Das alles zeichnet die Firma als stabilen Wirtschaftsfaktor der Region aus. http://www.trigema.de/

I still wear my old army boots. My trousers and shirts are mostly from military shops, furthermore I wear cheap no-name product T-shirts.

I also have a bunch of coats &#224; la Gestapo, SS and F&#252;hrer. Dissociating myself from the modern "youth scene" concept of the deliberately antisocial or even Skinheadian "Neonazi", I exercise to borrowings from classical noble NS-style of which the "Nazi coats" are the essential element.

I prefer Esprit jeans, and I like to wear leather and jean jackets. I like Finnish shoes, and Finnish winter shoes are absolute must because of their qualities for winter weather.

I have to admit that I have quite a lot of H&M clothes. But what can I do, having a body type of a Swedish teenage girl... it's easy to go shopping there, when it's not such a pain to find clothes that fit.

Don't look at me;) But I must admit, that although some leftists can be seen in camoflague pants, ragged old german army jackets, soviet red army uniform jackets or what have you, they are easily identified for what they are (long greasy rastas and camo dont mix for example), and I dont see how one could mistake us for them. Of course there exception even here, but most of 'us' who tend to wear militaria will look nothing like a lefty.

Luckily.

I wear whatever I want, and I could really care less about how it is I should be looking, or if what I wear is/is not aesthetically pleasing to the mainstream or if I'm getting any unnecessary attention from people, etc... I am an individual, and I don't adhere to any sort of cliched style or follow any trends, and I certainly don't belong to any belief-based club. I believe what I want; what feels right to me, and I am much in the same way about how I wear my clothing.

Basing one's wardrobe on what other people think of you really doesn't speak much about your sense of idividuality or self expression... I mean, seriously, does being racially aware have to automatically mean that you're part of some sauve, sophisticatedly dressed cult, and that sharing in such ideals involves a strict dresscode? :rolleyes: Is it really such a horrible thing if it 'seems like someone is living in the past' because of what clothes he/she is wearing? I'm sorry, but I think that some of this sounds quite ridiculous.

I am really against the idea of people having to dress a certain way, just because of their belief system... such limitations are cliquish and, much like following a fashion trend. The way an individual chooses to express himself with the clothes that he/she wears is quite trivial when you're looking at the broader scope of things... there are simply more serious issues that have to be dealt with before clothing fads are instituted.

It wouldn't matter if we all started dressing in Armani, looking as sleek and sophisticated as one could possibly be... the ideas of Nodicism, White Nationalism, "worldwide European-folk preservation", etc., will never be accepted by the mainstream public, or become more appealing to anyone who doesn't already harbor such ideals in their hearts... I mean, looking like a unit of sharply dressed sophisticates is not going to further anyone's cause... the Jehovah's Witnesses have been doing this for years, yet they're still getting doors slammed in their faces. ;)

But, seriously, it's not the clothes that make a man... it's the man that makes the clothes. It wouldn't matter if I were parading around in a potato sack, I'd still believe what I believe and will continue doing so until the day I die. Just be yourself, not some manufactured version of what everyone else finds aesthetically appealing.

Well, I've always found black clothes pleasing to my eye so naturally, I tend to wear black. Although I could be classified as a "metalhead", I don't go around reading zines for the latest fashion tips for any self-respecting metalhead to follow: "what kind of bullet belt should I wear?" ; "oh my devil, do these bracers fit with my amulet and shoes?" ad infinitum. I do have a few band-shirts though, as some of them actually look pretty nice. Anyway, to base one's looks upon what others think is quite conformist and thus contradicts with the ideals metal music contains.

Clothing is a way to express oneself, there's no denying that, but it's a thin line between choosing one's clothing to express oneself or some idea and seeking an impression of approval by clothing from peers of the same sub-culture. Impressions are only impressions however, and below that lovely dress, be it an Armani suit or rusty spikes and rotten leather, there may just be an ordinary crowdist seeking acceptance from others, some help for his frail self-image, a little consolation and reinforcement of that crumbling ego in this cold, harsh world.

The same goes for people who wear some (often) idiotic clothes because it's so hip, so retarded that it's actually cool. They also seek nothing but a certain impression from people: they want people to think they are so "open-minded, brave and individual for wearing such 'unique' clothes" while in reality, they themselves do not notice the striking similarities between all these "individual" people while buzzing about the latest insipid junk that they have occupied themselves with.


It wouldn't matter if I were parading around in a potato sack, I'd still believe what I believe and will continue doing so until the day I die.

In the end, it is substance that prevails over form, not vice versa like the case may be upon shallow observation. But I believe you'd look rather silly to people the first moment they see you jumping around in a potato sack, and thus wouldn't be really eager to hear what you have to say or that they would be baffled by your looks and dismiss what you have told them. I'd conclude that it depends on clothing that how seriously people take you, and the effect is the lesser the more people know about you: i.e. they don't focus so much on your clothing. It takes a lot to be completely dismissed though, and I'll leave these scenarios for you to imagine.

It seems some members of this forum have misunderstood the messege of my article and perhaps even taken it too seriously. :icon12:


Basing one's wardrobe on what other people think of you really doesn't speak much about your sense of idividuality or self expression...

If you are talking about me, I do not base my wardrobe on what other people think. And I would like to think I have a rich sense of idividuality and/or self expression.


I mean, seriously, does being racially aware have to automatically mean that you're part of some sauve, sophisticatedly dressed cult, and that sharing in such ideals involves a strict dresscode? :rolleyes:

No, being racially aware does not automatically mean that you're part of some sauve, sophisticatedly dressed cult, and that sharing in such ideals involves a strict dresscode. I never said so. :)

However, I suggested racially aware people should seek to minimize their sub-cultural-style tendencies and work together to create a style that makes them look united. I also said I thought that look should be aesthetically pleasing, neat and sophisticated looking and based on classical yet futuristic ideas. To me, that would be something like in the pics Blood Axis posted ;)


Is it really such a horrible thing if it 'seems like someone is living in the past' because of what clothes he/she is wearing? I'm sorry, but I think that some of this sounds quite ridiculous.

I never said it was a horrible thing. I merely suggested a more futuristic look was more appropriate.


I am really against the idea of people having to dress a certain way, just because of their belief system... such limitations are cliquish and, much like following a fashion trend.

You are really against the idea of people having to dress in a certain way, just because of their belief system. So, for example, the National Socialists of germany in the first half of the last century should have dressed as they pleased, all in different styles? Like some boring plutocracists or communists, perhaps. Or should we drop uniforms all together?


The way an individual chooses to express himself with the clothes that he/she wears is quite trivial when you're looking at the broader scope of things... there are simply more serious issues that have to be dealt with before clothing fads are instituted.

Sure there are mor serious issues. But we have a saying in Iceland, margt smátt gerir eitt stórt, which means that many small things make one big thing. You see, I think detail can matter in the broader scope of things.



It wouldn't matter if we all started dressing in Armani, looking as sleek and sophisticated as one could possibly be... the ideas of Nodicism, White Nationalism, "worldwide European-folk preservation", etc., will never be accepted by the mainstream public, or become more appealing to anyone who doesn't already harbor such ideals in their hearts...

I never suggested anyone dress in Armani or some fashion suit. But I disagree that the ideas of Nodicism, White Nationalism, "worldwide European-folk preservation", etc., will never be accepted by the mainstream public. You see I am very interested in the ideas of the ancient pagans. One of the ideas of the ancient pagans is that time is cylical, not linear (like the Judeo-Christians believe). I believe we now live in a bad cycle, coined the Wolf age in northen european mythology and the Kali-Yuga in eastern mythology. Degeneration on all fronts of human lives is rampant. But sooner or later this cycle will end. Then, I believe, there will arrive a new springtime for our people.



I mean, looking like a unit of sharply dressed sophisticates is not going to further anyone's cause... the Jehovah's Witnesses have been doing this for years, yet they're still getting doors slammed in their faces. ;)

I disagree. I think looking like a unit of sharply dressed sophisticates is going to further anyone's cause. I'm sure if the Jehovah's Witnesses would have been naked dressed in potatoe sacks, their number of members would be much less. ;)


But, seriously, it's not the clothes that make a man... it's the man that makes the clothes.

I think it's both, really. :) Everything affects everything.


It wouldn't matter if I were parading around in a potato sack, I'd still believe what I believe and will continue doing so until the day I die. Just be yourself, not some manufactured version of what everyone else finds aesthetically appealing.

I never said your clothing style would influence your own beliefs. I however suggested your clothing style would influence the way others see you. I never suggested one should be some manufactured version of what everyone else finds aesthetically appealing. As a matter of fact I said that the clothing in the normal style is often manufactured by judeo-capitalist company’s which use dishonorable measures in manufacturing and selling their clothing. And I said it was a flaw to that style.

I say again, it seems some members of this forum have misunderstood the messege of my article and perhaps even taken it too seriously. :)

The 1920-1945 fascist and National Socialist look often involves short-cut hair, shaved face, and then a military or party-member uniform from axis countries in Europe 1920-1945.

I'm between the "classic Nazi" and the "normal" look, I guess. Political uniforms aren't allowed here anyway, not to speak of NS symbols, and to run around in daily life with an actual uniform wouldn't be very appropriate. My clothing is rather a pseudo-uniform-like style. Clothing from army shops, bots, Gestapoid coats--"inspired by 1933". Military clothes, however, are quite "normal" today.

With respect to hair style and shaving face, the ol' Nazis have of course the point. "Fascho" rulez. :P Unfortunately, the hairdresser cut my hair a bit too short yesterday. I'll have to wait some weeks until it's in a better constitution ... :P


The perhaps most popular look is the skinhead look [...].

Unfortunately.


The Viking/ancient look is a look in which racialists seek to look like a member of a people in some ancient time, be it the Viking era, ancient Greece, Rome, medieval times or some other time which is now passed.

I could imagine that a toga is some very comfortable dress, especially in summer. But I guess one gets with it even more attention than with a SS uniform. :P

i have worn the same style for decades.

a simple neat shirt (http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/Products.aspx?DeptID=469&CatID=4443&CatTyp=BRD&ItemTyp=G&GrpTyp=ENS&ItemID=0be7976&ProdSeq=7&ProdCount=16&Cat=shirts&Dep=Men%27s&shopby=4400&PCat=Stafford&PCatID=4400&RefPage=PRODUCTNAV&Sale=&Ttyp=&ShowMenu=&RefPageName=CategoryAll%252Easpx&RefCatID=28257&RefDeptID=469&Filter=) that is presentable behind my sales-counter
and rugged pants that are roomy enough (http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?page=double-l-jeans&categoryId=32866&storeId=1&catalogId=1&langId=-1&parentCategory=3510&cat4=6298&shop_method=pp&feat=dp26) for me to squat
and lift boxes of books and magazines to the work-counter.
for the trouble-makers,
i can wrestle and crescent-kick (http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?p=126917#post126917) in these pants.

i have nine of these t-shirts (http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/Products.aspx?DeptID=469&CatID=4441&CatTyp=BRD&ItemTyp=G&GrpTyp=SIZ&ItemID=0be8469&ProdSeq=3&Cat=underwear&Dep=Men%27s&PCat=Stafford&PCatID=4400&RefPage=ProductList&Sale=&ProdCount=24&RecPtr=&ShowMenu=&TTYP=&ShopBy=4400&RefPageName=CategoryAll%252Easpx&RefCatID=28255&RefDeptID=469),
nine pairs of socks (http://www.sockcompany.com/re28cotuso.html) that cover my bulky calfs,
eight of the dress-shirts and eight of the pants.

to simplify matters,
i wash and dry each type of item on a separate day of the week.
they are in the washing-machine while i exercise,
in the drier while i eat and shower (http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?p=116484#post116484),
and are clean in my closet, before i leave the house.

i have two pairs of these comfortable shoes (http://www.nbwebexpress.com/detail.asp?type=&style=M587NV&filterSize=&filterWidth=), so,
i can wear one pair - while the other pair air-out.
they replaced my favorites of childhood (http://www.keds.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=716&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=136&iSubCat=137&iProductID=716),
over twenty years ago,
because keds became hard to find.

i see the u.s. keds are available, once again.

off-pavement, these danner boots (http://www.danner.com/products.asp?catid=12&prodid=1671) are my choice.

my hair-style is compliments of a local invention (http://www.salon.com/tech/feature/2000/01/06/flowbee/).
i keep my hair a neat one-and-a-half inches
(all of my hairs, actually).

there are so few cold days, here,
that the navy squall jacket (http://www.landsend.com/cd/fp/prod/0,,1_2_1931_59140_132235_110682_5:view=5 9,00.html?CM_MERCH=PAGE_62&sid=6337126600114178000)
i purchased twenty years ago
- is still presentable.

after reading this post,
my son reminded me
that i have four of these flannel-lined jeans (http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?page=flannel-lined-double-l-jeans&categoryId=23958&storeId=1&catalogId=1&langId=-1&parentCategory=4248&cat4=6356&shop_method=pp&feat=ln)
for daily january- and february-wear.

the flannel-lining make these so bulky
(and warm)
that only four will fit in the washing-machine
at one time.

quality clothing is so durable
and the winters so brief, here,
that my flannel-lined jeans are over five years old.

Earlier because I do at times like to sport the tunic, etc. This is especially on naturebound days

Elsehow, it is mostly metalhead, including wearing Springerstiefel, a black pair of trousers and one of my various bandshirts.

I refuse to betray my intelligence, nor have the depth of my character sounded at a glance, by wearing it on my sleeve. I subscribe to sanity, logic and truth; never any prescribed ideology. I'll not be pre-judged or otherwise defined by those who haven't the time, nor the ability, to judge me soundly.

I chose "Other" on the poll, because "Normal" is not a look for those who consider sensible racialism normal.

I wear "normal clothes" that can be found in regular store in an aestically pleasing way that envokes feelings of great germanic pride.

A substantial part of my wardrobe also consists of Thor Steinar and other germanic based clothing items, like my "Odin Statt Jesus" sweat jacket with knot patterns all over it, Odin, and viking shields etc.

I would classify myself as a "neo-viking" I guess, as far as clothing styles go. I also like to wear a lot of leather and suede (such as jackets and shoes) and I have long waist length hair.

I like to wear skirts, but if I wear jeans they have to be dark dark blue. Looks great against a black shirt or tank top and my shiny silver Thorburns hammer necklace.

In the end, it is substance that prevails over form, not vice versa like the case may be upon shallow observation. But I believe you'd look rather silly to people the first moment they see you jumping around in a potato sack, and thus wouldn't be really eager to hear what you have to say or that they would be baffled by your looks and dismiss what you have told them. I'd conclude that it depends on clothing that how seriously people take you, and the effect is the lesser the more people know about you: i.e. they don't focus so much on your clothing. It takes a lot to be completely dismissed though, and I'll leave these scenarios for you to imagine.

Hey, potato sacks are fashionable too. I like the looks of this new style! :D

Since I am the first to select "other" I suppose I have to be the first to expound upon what my style of dress is. I am a very conservative dresser, wearing mostly long, ankle length skirts and shirts that are updated and attractive, yet still very conservative. A great many of my clothes are homemade. I wear very little to no jewelry. If I do wear any, it is usually one necklace: either a long necklace or else a choker type of necklace. My shoes are generally "flats", loafer types, or sandals (I prefer low heeled shoes, which is why flats is in quotes). Usually I keep my hair pulled up in a loop (like how you don't pull the pony tail all the way through and it just hangs there in a loop.) I also do not wear any make-up. I only wear make-up for occasions where it is expected (such as employment-- and currently I do nto work).

On occasion, I let my hair down loose.
On occasion I actually wear pants.
Never shorts out of the house.
Never spagetti straps out of the house.


I was going to take some pics, but my camera is not working. So, I decided to google some images of clothing similar to what I may wear, but it is very difficult because most of my clothes are homemade and I have not been shopping in a very long time. :lol Anyhow, here are my attempts at finding things I may be spotted in:

This, without the belt and chunky jewelry: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000A5ATYM/sr=1-183/qid=1130518388/ref=sr_1_183/104-5236692-7903151?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance

This, except that i generally do not like the jeweled accents at the collar bone: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000A0GME8/sr=1-343/qid=1130518680/ref=sr_1_343/104-5236692-7903151?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance

Okay; I'll bite.

I voted "other" -- mostly I wear "regular" clothes but I still don't consider my look to be "normal", after all there are elements in mainstream fashion that I think are unacceptable, such as hippie or negro influences or whatnot. I mean, Che Guevara T-shirts, Palestinian headscarves or baggy negroid jeans are supposed to be "normal" clothes these days. :speechles

It's a good idea to keep in mind that whether you like it or not, people are going to take the clothes you wear into consideration when making up their minds about you. So in that regard paying some attention to your appearance is a good idea. Whether you want to make any specific statements with your clothes is up to you, of course.

I guess it all depends on where one lives and what one does in their daily routine....and of course what season it is.

As for me, given that I prone to being outside, often in chilly, wet or snowy conditions, I tend to wear fairly rugged attire. Carhartt (http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10101&storeId=10051&productId=32060&langId=-1&categoryId=10935) pants are a mainstay of mine as are leather "logger (http://www.shoestoboot.com/images/carolina/carolina_7016_7516_s.jpg)" boots.

I am also a big fan of fleece or wool vests for working out-of-doors. They enable ample arm movement while still providing the core with warmth.

As for facial and head hair--I'd say that I trend in the ancient/Viking direction. ;)

Same here, plus martin luther, malcom x, and shirt with the black panthers carrying weapons are some I've seen in school. Although the confederate flag on shirts is not allowed.

And the wearing of baggy shorts down to your ankles annoys me more than anything else. I have actually come close to telling these negroes at my school to pull their pants up! :speechles

Ridiculous!! You can wear Black Panthers shirts, but no confederate flag?? The stars and bars are still on many state flags in the south.

I remember a while back I was watching a movie (pretty sure it was one of the James Bond films) at my buddy's house and someone there saw the 'CCCP' on one of the missiles or tanks and was like, "I thought it was called the USSR?" :laugh:

Sometimes I may dress in a more militaristic manner, others I may dress more girly. Some days, I may just wear a t shirt and jeans, or just even my pajamas. It's more of an eclectic style than anything else.

I do the "normal look" but I am old and wouldn't fit into some of the other costumes described. I honestly try to dress so I will never be noticed and never attempt to make a strong first impression. Underestimation or, as George W. says, "mis-underestimation", has its advantages.

The avant-garde/techno-look is cool, though.

Somehow, I always imagined Jennifer to dress in a conservative manner like the actress Jennifer Garner says she was before she became a famous Hollywood type.

I'll answer here almost the same as i answered at GdV:

I think i'm quite normal when i look in my closet.

BUT, it all depends on what you find normal today.

Normally i use black tshirt, black jeans and sportsshoes.
I'm not that type that loves to go to pubs and so on, but when i do, i usually wear black sweatshirt/tshirt, jeans, my steelcapped boots and i always carry a knife in my pocket (for protection). Better safe than sorry, so to say.
I have very long hair (to my waist) and i let it be "natural" or as a ponytail.

After 4 kids, my body don't really fit in a nice dress [/IMG]

But okay, I have to admit, im a "germanophile" and i use Dirndl's (traditional german dress) at home in summer.

Dirndl is both good looking and nice to wear:

Normal would be an appropriate assessment most of the time.


I dress casually, most often a pair of slacks, and a tee shirt (many times plain black). In the winter, a jean jacket, and I allow my facial hair to grow (not drastically long, but a maintained beard. In the winter people comment that I resemble a viking. I'm taller than average, and ruggedly built, with the jean jacket and the red beard I look like what a modern-day-viking would, as my co-workers tell me.

Excellent subject for discussion.
Fashion like cuisine and architecture are significant expressions of the core culture.

In this historical circumstance what one avoids wearing might be more significant.

For example religiously avoiding wearing any fashion associated with the Television-Hollywood-Music Industry, or anything promoting non-European culture.

Wearing uniforms? do some European sub-cultures wear such today on a daily basis ? that seems somewhat out of touch with the historical circumstance and reality in general. But after reading this thread I noticed that some apparel in general conforms to the colors and cuts of many uniforms. which might represent a perceived or unconscious relationship ... ? i.e. "subtle" uniforms indiscernible to external groups ?


Therefore, some claiming they are in the "Normal" clothing category might possibly select apparel that vaguely resembles such uniforms in a very subtle form, either in color or cut.

I usually wear "normal", clothes, preferably of high quality and not seldom exclusive. At the same time, I strive to get a look that conforms with my Traditionalist and Nationalist ideals and Weltanschaung, which means that I avoid effeminate and Whiggerish clothing. Often I wear black, and often details that are recognizable by sub-culturalists but not by the average people.

The difficulty lies in the combination of looking like elite in the eyes of the contemporaries (so they are ready to listen to what one says), and at the same time the eyes of eternal Tradition (so that one is an example). I don't think I succeed really, but at least that is the goal.

Ah this is what I wanted to say overall, with the substitution of the word "elite" for caste.

I suppose there might be a connection among the dominant color combinations and self-perceived or even possibly an unconconscious approximation of caste ...?

which would be in juxtaposition to the current, generally non-European caste "uniforms ...?"

In any case you make a good point and articulate the essential idea.

The importance of looks in the worldwide European-folk preservation world

The 1920-1945 fascist and National Socialist look often involves ... a military or party-member uniform from axis countries in Europe 1920-1945. This look may often seem sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing.

The National Socialist of the Third Reich knew this and understood the importance of clothing. For example the uniforms of the SS were designed to intimidate while being sophisticated, aesthetically appealing and having practical military purpose.[quote]

Fashion Firm Discovers Its Holocaust History
Clothier Hugo Boss Supplied Nazi Uniforms With Forced Labor

By Robin Givhan
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, August 14, 1997; Page B01

The Washington Post

The German clothing factory that eventually became the international menswear powerhouse Hugo Boss AG manufactured Nazi uniforms during World War II and most likely did so using slave labor.

The revelation appeared in the latest issue of the Austrian current affairs magazine Profil. A statement from Hugo Boss AG, which is based in Metzingen, Germany, details and confirms much of the account.

"The clothing factory founded by Mr. Hugo Boss manufactured work clothes and we think SS uniforms as well. . . . So far, we have no archives in the company and we're currently trying to find what was going on," says Monika Steilen, spokeswoman for Hugo Boss AG, by phone from headquarters in Germany. "This is the first time we have heard of the history."

Boss founded his family-owned garment business in 1923. The company struggled for a time, fell into bankruptcy, and then, during the war, made the uniforms worn by the German SS, storm troopers, Wehrmacht and Hitler Youth. It's likely that the factory was manned by forced labor including concentration camp prisoners and prisoners of war.

Following the war, according to Profil, Boss was ostracized as an "opportunist of the Third Reich," stripped of his voting rights and fined 80,000 marks.

Over time, the family business was passed from sons to grandsons. In 1953 it produced its first men's suits. By the early 1970s it was beginning its transformation into a manufacturer of pricey and fashion-conscious men's power suits and sportswear. In 1985 the company went public in Germany. Now, the majority of stock is held by the Italian fashion conglomerate Marzotto Group. No family members are currently involved in the company, Steilen says.

Hugo Boss AG, with turnover of approximately $535 million a year, regularly unveils its menswear collection in New York under the auspices of 7th on Sixth, a business division of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Last fall, a Boss Hugo Boss store opened on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown and there has been some discussion within the company of a second location in the Washington area.

"We don't close our eyes and say we don't want to know anything about it," Steilen says. "What can we do? We try to get a lot of information. We cannot do anything more."

The company may employ a historian to uncover more details about its founder, who died in 1948, and his Nazi involvement.

News of Hugo Boss AG's tainted past caught Seventh Avenue off guard. In a business where news spreads like wildfire and rumors fly even faster, the Boss story had been kept under wraps. The industry is slowly absorbing the news and wondering about the possible effect on the company's image and business fortunes.

How should the industry react to such a revelation? "It's a traumatizing question," says Stan Herman, the CFDA's president. "I live my life with one of the greatest conundrums in the world. . . . I love Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner. Strauss was in the Nazi party and Wagner was Hitler's favorite composer. As a Jew, there's constantly a conundrum there."

The many Jews in the fashion industry have dealt with the emotional issue of Nazism before, along with the appropriation of sacred costumes as style statements. Coco Chanel was reviled during her lifetime as a Nazi sympathizer due to her relationship with a German aristocrat who turned out to be a German agent in occupied Paris. The industry expressed outrage when designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons designed striped and numbered pajama suits that critics said looked like the uniforms of concentration camp prisoners. A Jean-Paul Gaultier collection that was inspired by the traditional garb of Hasidic Jews also raised hackles.

"There was a knee-jerk reaction to the Gaultier clothes," Herman says. "But this is a different story because this is in the past. . . . I hope the industry will put this in perspective.

"I'm glad people know about it," he added. "It's part of history, but I don't think the industry will close in on them."

The company's straightforward approach in dealing with the disclosure should serve it well, observes Frank Mankiewicz, vice chairman of Hill & Knowlton, a powerhouse public relations firm adept at crisis management.

"It's been 50 years. The original liability is gone. Assuming the story is true, you concede it," Mankiewicz says. Then the company should explain itself and make its apologies: "We're making high fashion men's clothes. That's way in the past. . . . We would never be in such a business now. We'd go out of business before we'd do something like that now."

As a public relations disaster, "I'd say it's about a 5 or a 6 out of 10," Mankiewicz says. "They're going to have to deal with the ethical issue. They're going to lose some business, but they'll probably gain some by the notoriety."

Such bombshells about German companies that have been in operation since the war are not unusual. BMW used slave labor to repair airplane engines, says Steven Luckert, historian and a curator at the Holocaust Memorial Museum. "Certainly hundreds of German firms were involved in producing materiel for the war effort," he says.

And as working-class Germans went off to fight, a labor shortage developed. Businessmen could and did turn to concentration camps for workers. Says Luckert: "The laborers weren't forced on them."

Still, being a manufacturer of Nazi uniforms, as opposed to airplane parts or rivets, packs a larger emotional punch. "Even looking at some of these uniforms, because of what they were associated with, fills a lot of people with dread and terror," Luckert says. Even today, the uniform "symbolizes what the Nazis stood for -- terror, persecution, the power of the state."

Aside from adding a chapter to the history books, Luckert says there is the possibility of compensation. "Beginning in the 1950s, there have been a number of former concentration camp inmates who began filing suits against companies to be reimbursed for their labor," he notes. Some of those suits resulted in monetary settlements.

But there also is a moral imperative. Such revelations are a kind of forced catharsis. While Hugo Boss AG, with its many licensees and divisions, may be far removed from the original family-owned business, it still has an opportunity to learn lessons from the past. The willingness to dig deeper for more details about its history is likely to be seen as a positive step.

"This is a good example of a company acting not out of compulsion but out of moral need," says Kenneth Jacobson, assistant national director of the Anti-Defamation League. "We shouldn't criticize them, but encourage them.

"It's hard to define their obligations," he says. It may be as straightforward as establishing a public education program on intolerance.

"The most important thing is to set an example for the future," Jacobson says. "You can't redeem the past otherwise."

None.

All right, all right, fine. When I need to wear clothing (like, when there are other people around) I find that I prefer the following (no pictures, as it would kill somebody's computer, I'm sure):

Colors: Anything vibrant: greens, pinks, blues, purples, reds, yellows, oranges, and of course black and white, also like some more subtle and "earthy" tones such as various shades of brown, usually darker ones, and I love metallic bronze and like gold to a degree, teal is one of "my" colors and red is the one I get the most compliments while wearing, I like pretty much all bright colors, I don't really like pastel colors or unsaturated colors (although I love grey of any shade)

Fabrics: Silk, Satin, Leather, Lace, Velour, Cotton (of course), Denim, mesh (of course with something over or under it), wool, lurex (well, it's necessary to be shiny, at times) and anything with properly attached sequins

Patterns: Pinstripes, tweed (I consider it a pattern), cableknits, things with focused appliques or central graphic designs, houndstooth, camoflauge, plaid, eyelets

Styles/Items: Not all of these are exactly like the items I had in mind, but I tried to find pictures closest to what I have and enjoy.

Button-up or hook and eye shirts: various sleeve lengths and necklines, I prefer stripes, plain or lightly accented ones, I also like ruching on them sometimes. I usually wear them half-open over a tank-top or camisole/shell that I like, but wouldn't want to wear alone on the occasion.
http://images2.buzzillions.com/images_products/09/86/199456_300.jpg

Funky Jewelry: I wear it seldomly, it's usually associated with "an outfit", but I love it.
http://fashiontribes.typepad.com/main/images/great_necklace_close_up_805.JPG

Pleated skirts: Not too short. Don't like to have any issues with my stuff showing.
http://bp1.blogger.com/_QtxNTIatXEg/Rw1ZGegBznI/AAAAAAAAAMU/HjDWsJcRudA/s1600-h/JL-J6084112_364_ex.jpg

A-line skirts: I find the one in the picture somewhat ugly, but I like the shape they have, so long as they stay in position. I have a rather nice one with a lace inset.
http://img.classiccloseouts.com/images_104/attributes_m/2AP41503.jpg

T-shirts: Of course. I am a high school student. I have cut down signifcantly. Now I usually wear t-shirts over other shirts that stick out past one or more of the edges. I like ones with cute or interesting designs. I only have one with writing, now. I usually wear it to bed, because it's too big for me.
http://i.treehugger.com/images/2007-3-7/t-shirts.jpg

Some more modestly cut halter tops/tank tops: With a lot of tops, I'm afraid that if I bend over I'm just going to "fall out" of them, so I usually prefer to have some amount of "security" fabric, and I almost always wear a jacket/blazer/cardigan over. I have one halter and one tank top I really like that are a little too risque (and risky) for my personal public taste, but I don't mind wearing them around guys I'm serious with.
http://cdn.overstock.com/images/products/L10825836.jpg

Flip-flops: I love them, I need them. I cry when it is too cold out to wear them (I usually try to wear them with toe socks before turning them in for sneakers/pumps/boots.).
http://x16.xanga.com/fa9a3106c023549666658/b31750331.jpg

Polo shirts: Various sleeve lengths, prefer bright colors, neutral colors, or patterns (not stripes, though, I hate striped polos). Usually wear something interesting under them and keep them unbuttoned.
http://images.usoutdoorstore.com/usoutdoorstore/products/full/tnf_w_slubby_polo_toffe07.jpg

Studded belts: Like most of my generation, I have fallen victim to them. I have quite a few. My favorites are a brown leather one with gold studs, a black one with white studs, and a silver on silver one.
http://shinymedia.blogs.com/photos/uncategorized/burton_studded_belt_pink.jpg

Corset: I like overbust corsets. Of course, I usually wear something at least over, if not over and under them. I prefer the mod and classically styled ones. Some of the "goth" and "lolita" ones are cute, too. I've kind of always wanted one of the corset dresses (that goes from the bust to below the butt).
http://www.anniemodesitt.com/patterns/corset.jpg

Pencil skirts: I prefer that mine have a bit of a "flare" at the knee. They need to fit properly, of course. My favorite pencil skirt is a brown and green tweed that has a sort of "tulip" flare to it at the knee. I like to wear it with a brown top and bronze pumps.
http://www.stainedcouture.com/cutenews/data/upimages/JCAVALLIsatinflipskirt.jpg

Short trench coats: Satin. Red, preferably. Either with a shortish skirt or with dark jeans/pants.

Toe socks: My pinky toe always comes out of the right spot. :(

Pearls: My birthstone. Used to hate them. Now I think there is nothing better or more complimetary for me.
http://www.jtcbeads.com/skillsEDIT/clientuploads/46/pearls1.jpg

Lace-Trimmed Tunic Tanks: Usually worn under a t-shirt or a sweater so just the lace trim along the bottom pokes out. I have... several. Two different red ones, a white one, a purple one, two different pink ones, a black one a turquoise one...
http://www.nexternal.com/lf/images/K278501main.jpg

Fitted blazers: Of various styles and lengths. Usually prefer ones with shorter sleeves. My favorite one is red satin. I also like an eyelet one I have. Bright colors or interesting patterns are a must. I have some more conservative ones, though.

Bullet belts: Not the most practical of things, but I feel like they add the right punch to a plain-cut solid color dress.

Interesting jeans: Not these in particular. I don't like "rips" much. I prefer to add my own interest to my jeans, as I'm pretty good with embellishments by now. I like to paint the back pockets or punch grommets into them and lace them corset style. If jeans are too long for me, I'll ruch the legs instead of simply hemming them, sometimes. All sorts of fun things to do with them.

AND NOW... my favorite part of the wardrobe...

DRESSES!

For this season, I love sweater dresses (http://www.fashion-era.com/images/2006_7_trends_fall/greys/Matalan&#37;5B1%5D.25976a.jpg) or shirt dresses (http://www.asos.com/images/inv/E/8/48/80183/White/image1xl.jpg) (with longer sleeves). I find that these are best in solid colors, with tights under them, and with boots.

For spring/fall and summer I like swing dresses (this (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51QZEQX3X6L.jpg) and this (http://hotrodvoodoo.com/hrv/images/dancemacabredress.jpg)) and sundresses (this (http://foreveramber.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/06/26/dressoftheday.jpg)). I prefer that sundresses have a large, bright pattern on them, white with kelly green. There should be a sash around the waist of some sort. Swing dresses should have either a small pattern or a medium pattern, but nothing too busy. They should also have some sort of tie around the waist. I prefer them in a dark color, like navy, with a bright trim, like red, and a light pattern, like white. Short sleeved blazer and strappy high heeled sandals and I'm set. :D


And... of course... when the mood strikes me, I will wear a Dirndl:

Clothing is just a system. Memorise & individualise the system, then take great care to look careless.

Starting informally:


Boat shoes or canvas sneakers + linen shorts/trousers or lightweight jeans + polo or T shirt (plus plaid shirt or cardigan if it's cold)

Tretorn or Adidas sneakers + bootcut jeans + polo shirt + sweater (like a Guernsey or Lacoste v neck)

Jackets: 2 x Baracuta G9 slimfit windbreaker (natural & dark green), Dupe jacket, CP Company rain jacket, D&G linen blazer


Suede boots + jeans or herringbone trousers (getting on for wideleg) + collared shirt + cord blazer (plus woolen tie if it's cold)

Suede boots or brown leather shoes + grey wool trousers + check shirt + tweed jacket (plus woolen tie if it's cold)

Brown double monkstraps or penny loafers + grey or tan trousers + French cuff shirt + silk (striped) tie + pocket square + single or double breasted blazer

Black oxfords + suit (single or double breasted) + French cuff shirt (plain, striped or contrast collar) + silk tie (plain/patterned/paisley) + pocket square

Overcoats: 2 x covert coats, one traditional fawn w/ contrast collar (slightly less formal), other is plain dark grey


I don't like cord or moleskin trousers. I'm still learning about obscure Japanese denim brands. I tend to dislike anything which is not English or American (by extension, English). RL, Lacoste, Penguin make the best polos.

I wear whatever I feel like. Sometimes simply and othertimes very flamboyant and colourful. My most worn shoes are a pair of ancient adidas that are green with yellow stripe. My mother will not allow me to wear them anymore. :( I am also very fond of boots. I have a pair of desert boots, doc martens (8 hole flat colour), white leather (flat), and plaid canvas.

Maybe my style is a little "punk", I don't know. I also ocasionally dress "classically". But always modestly.

edit: I did forget to add my fondness for layering.

I have to wear a suit to work. :o I actually have to buy a new one this week as I've put a couple of inches on my chest and shoulders and my old one is quite tight. :(

When I'm not at work I usually wear "smart casual". Like SineNomine, I think something bordering on semi-formal looks good for daily wear.

I also like to wear jeans and a tight fitting t-shirt. I can't stand loose shirts, they hide my body and make me look shapeless. :p

By choice I wear a lot of modified victorian and steampunk inspired styles. Shirtwaists, fishtail skirts, grannyboots, fancy tights, tophat, opera coat, practical cape. My corset is great over a white turtleneck. I also have had the same black leather combat boots and leather biker jacket for more than ten years.:D Cure, Cruxshadows or other band shirts are great over other things. I am wearing my Rosie the Riviter shirt today.

I like Icelandic and Irish sweaters and scandinavian styles for winter. Tall black boots. In summer I like more neofolk styles. I like equestrial styles that give me a good excuse to wear my ridingboots.

I have started wearing a lot of plain black pants in various materials in the last few years. Skirts and dresses are wonderful but not so good when you are going down slides with a toddler.

I like wearing suits, career wear and smart casual looks. People often ask why I am dressed-up. V-necks, 3/4 sleeves, the occasional tweed dress, wide-leg pants and high-waisted skirts are always flattering. Skirts must be around the knee; anything shorter is not conservative enough for my tastes. I don't do sneakers or light-colored jeans. I always wear heels of some height. Favorite brands are Antonio Melani, Elie Tahari and Ann Taylor.

I usually wear a sweater with some band logo on (tr00hardcore \m/) and some funny t-shirts + black jeans. When Im outside I usually wear leather gloves (*hawt*) and my coat :D

I dress with intent and I have a set of colour and style rules which I always stick to.

I mix second hand clothes with new clothes.

I wear red, black and white, only apart from occasional brown leather accessory, which is a belt, but could be something else.

I have a lizard skin wallet which is grey-black-white.

I wear black Oxfords or black leather sandals. Never brown leather shoes, ever. Even in the country. I have a brown leather belt, which looks ok with black trousers and shoes.

I often wear a finely knitted black jumper with a shirt.

I never wear a t-shirt without a shirt on top. I have shirts which are black, white, white with a black design, or stripes. I have a red t-shirt which I might wear under these. I would not wear a red shirt. Just black, white, or black and white.

I like Paisley patterned shirts, but the nice one I had was shredded in a fight which I do not remember anything about.

I was going to order a hand-knit Shetland jumper in black-red-white, that will wait until autumn now.

I am looking to soon purchase a black trilby hat, a smart white t-shirt with a black design, a cotton scarf (red, black or black and white), a smart black cardigan, some black trousers (having difficulty finding something well-stitched, well-cut in the right material) and a black leather jacket, which is the cause of much deliberation. It is difficult to find a leather jacket which does not look cheap or too fussy.

I think that Karl Lagerfeld has been the unsung director of fashion this decade, and I am going to pay homage and go the two outlets in London which sell his clothes when I am next in town.

I try to dress sharply, but not too hard. I like 'Mod' fashions and 80s fashions, but they are mostly too a bit too fashioned for me.

I like to mix shades of black with touch of red and/or white, according to mood and occasion.

I sometimes just wear black. I have several Dolce and Gabbana shirts (black).

I dislike clothes which are too fashionable. I could not find anything to wear in Copenhagen when I went to the largest department store, 'Magasin', as it was all far too fashionable. I live in hope of finding something by Hugo Boss that I like. The Hugo Boss company seem to produce the best of the widely sold off-the-peg garments, but there is nothing for me. Clothes today seem to be designed mostly for football casuals or simply look either gay or staid and boring.

The main department store here in Las Palmas, where I am staying just now, 'El Corte Ingles', has been a similar disappointment.

My anarchist punk father dragged me around Camden, London, when we last met, looking all all the street styles, combat trousers, quirky t-shirts and so forth. Nothing appeals on that end of the spectrum either.

I will never ever wear demin, even black demin. I am very fussy about fabrics. I prefer natural fabrics. I prefer generally cotton to wool.

I reject the smart casual look because it looks ridiculous on me, but what I would seem to wear is a reduced black-white-red version of this with a few slightly more formal/punkish twists and add-ons. It seems to work.

To me these are classics. Every man could do with a few of these.

1) Clarks crepe-soled desert boot

2) Baracuta G-9 jacket. The original and best Harrington, note that the inner check lining reaches all the way to the zip

3) Belstaff jackets (or Barbour)

4) CP Company & Stone Island jackets, pictured is the Mille Miglia

5) Tretorn sneakers

6) Covert coat. Most versatile overcoat a man can own, can go all the way from covering a suit to going over casual shirt and jeans. Very English style

7) Sperry Topsiders, for the summer

8) Lacoste polo shirt. Fred Perry & Ralph Lauren polos are also good alternatives

9) Brooks Brothers button down shirt, an American classic

10) Spread / cutaway collar shirt from any English shirtmaker. The friendliest yet also most refined collar style

11) Guernsey sweater

12) Tweed cap

13) Levi jeans, still the mainstay of the denim market

Me I'm never out of combat trousers, some of which are in camouflage colours others not.

Tops are more varied, in winter black tee shirts with a design is normal. covered by a polo neck in blue or black, In summer The strappy tops come out to play.

If I'm dressing up to go out then it's sort of goth I suppose certainly black and drippy, normally low cut tops and trousers.

Colours are black then purples blues through to brown not red or yellow.

I never wear skirts (except to black tie and then it's a dress)
I never wear pink. (I don't own a single object that is pink other than colouring pencils!)

Winter: Sorel snow boots (Canadian), jeans, tee shirt under layered sweat shirts depending on how cold it is. I like knitted caps and a pullover and gloves if it is really cold and I have to shovel snow, walk the dog, etc., in snowy weather. Style means nothing. Summary: it is not L.L. Bean, it is Cabelas if that makes any sense to you.

Summer: In July and August I lose the jeans (unless I have to go through dense forest) in favor of bermuda shorts. Add athletic shoes (flat bottoms and soles soft enough to provide traction on rocks) and a tee shirt. If I go to Hawaii, lose the athletic shoes and substitute "Jap flaps" and add a Hawaiian shirt for formal occasions.

I see women wearing these skirts over here and to be honest these skirts are kind of slutty. Really, a woman could look much better and alluring if she doesn't expose too much.

I dress like a normal guy. I used to dress in skinhead clothes but I'm over it. I just put a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or sweater on, whatever I out my hands on first out of the wardrobe. A suit if I'm going somewhere formal. Men who are too preoccupied with fashion come across as gay.

I also wear a variety of T-shirts from around the world, and the occasional band. Most of them are either white or black. Sometimes I wear a Red Sox hat. When the weather gets inclement I like to wear a black Puma windbreaker I got in Sweden.

When I go out I will generally put on one of my Lacoste shirts. I did have a pink one but I think I got rid of it.

Well i was into the football casual culture when i was a teenager, and i've still kept with the same sort of fashion even though i'm not into football that much any more. Sometimes it gets confused with chav style by people who tend to get their fashion ideas out of the guardian or other newspapers, but i don't really care that much. Basically it's mainly designer labels - jumpers, shirts, polo tops, blue jeans and white trainers.

I tried to find a couple of pics to illustrate, but i don't keep many on my computer. One of me walking away (me far right) and another one a Swede took when i was going to the Salem march that ended up on the web (me with the balaclava on) - the words were added by someone else btw, not me.

I like those jeans which look old and worn, maybe with some fashionable cuts in them. I wear tshirts, I like them plain or with logos. I like black shirts or navy blue or white. On top I wear a denim jacket if it's cold outside.

Long leather trenchcoat is something I almost always wear outside. I find it suitable to wear for any temperature between about -15°C and +20°C.

If it's not too cold, a band shirt and a jeans or camo pants. If it's colder, also a black hoodie.

Shoewear I stick to either regular walking boots, combat boots, or my main guilty pleasure - classic Black Chuck Taylor All-Stars. One of the few things coming straight from America that I like.

Generally speaking, any trousers which are very thin (in my environment anyway, which is arid most of the year) and very loose. Some people refer to it as prisonware, because they can't be used to conceal a shank and hence demonstrate trust on the part of the criminal, but in my case there's no symbolism involved. The clothes in themselves don't matter, only the idea that they can't be seen as extravagant. Wearing them does not make me opposed to materialism, or law and order, or anything of that nature: businessmen in my nation's capital, Sydney, often wear boardshorts (which are far from comfortable or luxurious), and the cabbage-leaf hat was worn up until the mid-nineteenth century by most workers.

Gone is my thuggish look of yore (cherry red Doc Matens, polo shirts and bomber jackets). Now I like wearing waistcoats (so practical, with plenty of pockets for spare change, tickets etc) |Also I like nice secondhand overcoats with broad lapels and collarless shirts.

I wear a lot of polo-shirts and cardigans, as an alternative to the crew-neck t-shirt and sweater combo. If want to look slightly smarter I wear a casual shirt and a v-neck sweater, but I never wear a tie except on formal occasions.

I mostly wear light or dark brown cord or moleskin trousers rather than jeans and brown leather shoes or boots of some description and a brown leather belt. As you might have gathered I tend to wear brown as my main colour, especially at this time of year but I'm thinking of branching out into blue. You're not bored yet are you? :P:

Not sure if this is the right Forum but..........
How do you dress?? Jeans, slacks, a suit??
Do you always wear t-shirts, button downs, pull-overs sweat shirts??

I wear blue jeans, usually "Wranglers" brand. They fit well & wear well.
I do also like the Walmart, "Faded Glory" brand. But my DSW Sharon thinks they look too loose, baggy on me.

I always wear a black, pocket, t-shirt, all year around, always tucked in.
I also wear a blue cotton chambray or denim shirt, open down the front and of course, untucked. Long sleeve in Winter, short sleeve in Summer.

I have a plain Wrangler blue jean jacket.
I have a lined Wrangler blue jean jacket and I have a Wrangler blue jean jacket with a hoody.

For really cold weather I have two military field jackets, in black & Cammi, with liners.
I have a dressy leather coat, numerous business suits and 2 tuxes, that I rarely wear, formal occasions, funerals & Weddings.

So......how do you honestly dress , for yourself & the World??;)

I wear Carhartts. Double knee, heaviest weight. They never wear out,

well not unless you actually work for a living. Even then they are

incredibly sturdy.

They are lightly oiled so that coffee or most anything else you might spill

on them just rolls off ( well, maybe not heavy duty motor oil ). If you

spill anything on them at the office or a social affair just soak the stain

out with a wet rag and 15 minutes later they are dry. In fact, I rarely

wash mine in a machine, as that is the only thing that seems to wear

them out.

Carharrts are the only clothes I know that you can crawl under your car

to fix something, crawl out, dust yourself off and go into a job interview

and feel well dressed.

I wear them everywhere, sailing, hunting, working on my car, in the

office, meeting the Gov,etc. And I wear them when when I have to work

in the lower 48 and have never had a problem.

Although, I must confess, I am thinking of switching to Filson's tin pants.

Carharrts or Filson clothes may be more expensive. But a pair of pants

will last for years and

shirts or coats will last almost for ever except for the most extreme use.

And they look sharp.




1) Carharrts and Filsons, Dutch Harbor ( after a month sailing in the Bering Sea ).
2) Russian Orthodox Church, Unalaska.
3) Fuel dock, Dutch Harbor.

Articdoctor I have to agree with you,Carhartts are the way to go especially
if you work outdoors,hunt,fish or do anything when it's cold out.
I have two sets of Carhartts and both are black on the outside and red underneath but they lack the double knee.They do pretty well with oil and
grease since mine routinely get covered by both of those products on a regular basis.
I just take them to a carwash and hang my bottoms and bibs on the hangers and let 'er rip tater chip.;)

Interesting. Personally I have little interest in fashion.

I work in a management position and how I dress is important. Because I live in a hot and humid climate more times then not most business men do not wear suits. I tend to wear nice dress pants and dress shirts to work.

When not at work I dress for comfort and wear what I want to wear. Basically I tend to wear jeans, t -shirts and my beloved Docs -which I find very comfortable. Because I am a muscular white male who dresses that way, has tattoos and very short hair most people more then likley think I am a Skinhead or in the military. I wear my hair short because it looks good that way on and to me is comfortable in our hot, tropical climate. No more and no less - while I do associate with the Skin movement in many ways it is no longer who I am.

I do not think that clothes define us, but the content of our heart and in this case our dedication to the cause of the preservation of our folkways.

It varies.
Mainly depending on how I'm feeling.
Some days I can look like a metal head (band t-shirt, jeans, boots and my Eluveitie hoodie), other days I jump back a couple of centuries and wear my Steampunk attire (dress trousers, white Victorian blouse, grey waistcoat, pocketwatch and Victorian boots), and there are days when I either can't be bothered and wear my baggy, comfy clothing (my slouchy jeans and my wolf t-shirt), and there are days when I wear Earthy colours, linen and sandals. I call that my "Healer" attire. It's what I wear when I go and collect plants and herbs and also when I do magick (long sleeved poets shirts, brown or moss green skirt). I guess you could say that's my Viking maiden look, lol.

My attire depends entirely on how I'm feeling.

Generally, always wearing black. I only wear black jeans with black shoes, and I generally wear my black engineer boots. All my band shirts are black unless I'm wearing a flannel or button up shirt (now the only band shirts I wear are Joy Division and Death in June). Due to the weather I'm always wearing a black beanie. I've worn black since I was a kid, I don't think I'll ever get out of having a mainly black wardrobe.

The past couple of months my attire has become more "mature". I used to always wear my vests or this time of the year my leather jackets with a bullet belt and two studded bracelets. Now I look like a hipster.

I mostly wear Wrangler jeans, black pocket T-shirt, blue denim over shirt, untucked, with brogan shoes or tennis shoes. When I leave the house I always wear a hat or a cami ball cap. My hair is cut short in a conventional style, every 5 or 6 weeks.Occasionally I wear cowboy boots or high black lace-up boots and sometimes a cowboy hat.
I have a salt & pepper full beard, of hand-width length. Even so most folks think I'm much younger than my 70 years old.

In cold weather, I wear a Wrangler denim jacket with a heavy hoody inside.
Or I may wear a nice leather coat, or any of several nice clean field jackets, in one of various colors. We live rural and I only go into our little town a couple times a week, and rarely over to the City.

When I go to Art Shows with my DSW, who is an Artist, I dress in black slacks, shirt & sport coat, or a suit & tie, with a fedora hat, because it's expected. I fit in well.;)

When I shave which is often I have the normal look. When I don't shave after a few days and let my hair grow longer my redness in my hair shows more signifigantly. I do have brown hair and isn't as light as when I was a kid. I could have the viking look which I like , especially when I am in a bad mood. I have the head type for a viking.
I would say my dad has the nationalist socialist look. He could pass as a german in the ss in the 1930's. He always has his hair cut short and it is blonde. His hair is always neat and combed perfect all the time. He looks like Boomer Essiason the quarterback for the cincinnati bengals. Of course I would not tell him about the national socialist look. He just likes to farm.
Mostly though we look normal and we both like to dress up when we can even though I have been dressed as a slob which I will admit.

The traditional "Viking" Long hair/bearded look for me!

This is basically my wardrobe as well (though I always thought long hair also fell into the metal category)..

I wonder why "metalhead" was not included in the original poll?..

And also, what exactly is the viking look besides long hair and a beard (for the purposes of this poll, that is)? Surely people don't walk down the street dressed as though they just returned from a jomsviking event... Unless, of course, they actually did just return from a jomsviking event and haven't had time to change. :D

That is funny but true what is really the viking look? I guess being germanic looking with long hair and beard like barbarians of old which is amazing the sameness in looks of germanics of 2000 years ago and today. Certain germanics of different regions have a certain look. Head shape, eyes set deeply and shape of head. Some germanics have that fierce look. especially blued eyed people. I have known people with that look. My art teacher in school had that look and when he got mad at us kids for misbehaving his face got redder and he was fierce like a viking which scared me as a kid.

I prefer simple clothing that is practical and comfortable without being too boring, but somehow this always means looking like a typical metalhead/stoner. I don't try for the look, but apparently it's just what I happen to pick up off of the floor every day.

On a typical day I'll be wearing skate shoes and (frequently mismatched) calf or knee socks, cargo shorts or jeans, whatever t-shirt looked interesting at the thrift store, a plaid button-up shirt, and few necklaces, usually some pendants relating to my ancestry and/or spiritual beliefs.
I neither cut my hair nor shave (for religious reasons), so I have a beard and hair to the middle of my back which is almost always in a ponytail, though if really need it out of the way I tie it back in a knot/bun.

At work... shirt and tie.

Casual... Depends, I used to be pretty 'Gothy' but have tended to tone that down, if we're walking in the countryside it'll be mostly green, not so much camouflage but an olive green M65 army jacket and boots.

I used to have a really long black leather 'Gestapo' type jacket which I used to wear all the time but I don't like wearing leather now. It's not a vegan thing, I just don't like wearing it. However I'd never wear fur!


If we go out for a meal I tend to wear a shirt and sometimes a tie, depends on the situation.

I don't tend to wear 'band' t shirts that much anymore but will wear ones that I buy now and again, Star Wars to Hong Kong Phooey... :D

I wouldn't wonder if many people here were Social-Darwinists, the survival of the fittest, assigned to clothes I think it would be reasonable not to stick out too much, at least not in young years, to avoid disadvantages.

When I was younger I never cared about clothes and must have looked rather absurdly which made me an outsider, a circumstance that partly persecutes me to the present day - for this reason I care about my look now.

In the meanwhile I found my own style which I think is quite fashionable but nothing too fancy, and I avoid some brands that I consider too mainstream in some way.

I like a masculine, subtile militaristic and kind of rural look, for example khaki M65 military pants or workers's jeans combined with a checked shirt.

If I hadn't to consider any cultural norms I think I would most likely wear different camouflage pants all the time.

I have a mix of three styles. My style is a mix of national socialist, skinhead and american country. National socialist portion is the hair-style. My clothing is country/work style clothing. With skinhead boots (stopped wearing white laces due to constant harassment by zog law enforcement and I do not cuff or tuck my jean pant legs into the boot, they fit over the boot). It is a good style. Believe it or not, they do blend well together when you dress the right way.

My attire is mine. I wear clean pants or jeans with a leather belt. Into those pants I tuck in a shirt, be it plaid, khaki, linen, T-shirt, wifebeater... I don either some sort of polished boots or shoes. I either have a baseball cap, brimmed hat, fur hat, or nothing on my head. My hair is long and is combed back into a "pony tail", but my face is shaven. Jackets and coats vary depending on the occasion. Simply said, I look after my appearance.

Work is another matter though. It's either jeans or overalls depending on what I am doing. Footwear is usually big rubber boots or some other dirty cloppers. Shirts and overcoats don't matter as long as the job gets done. It's either a big straw hat, a fur hat, or some other brimmed hat for on my head.

So yeah, I dress according to the occasion.

Anyway, depends on the ocasion, but I usualy adopt the 1920-1945 fascist and National Socialist look plus the combat boots. Only sometimes I nedd to look "normal".

I look like a Gothick SS soldier. The classic SS haircut, but with a long blonde/red beard. I shop at army surplus stores and wear black leather boots and jacket. I wear a few little SS trinkets too. I have an SS runic ring, a Deaths Head patch on my hat. A Thorr's Hammer made of deer bone on my neck. People are usually nervous around me. Until I speak, then they open up and are probably relieved. Lol.
And looks are important. Some would say, "don't be obvious. Don't draw unneeded attention to yourself". But for me, I can't be a way that i'm not. I cannot be fake. It's impossible for me. I never was, nor will I ever be. I wear the truth on my sleeve.

Forgot to mention the 7 inch "norske" bowie knife (made in Finland) I wear on my "second amendment right to keep and bear arms" belt and buckle.

For colder out-door-weather I'll usually have some kind of plain, black jacket.
For foot-wear, I like the M-77 military boot a lot:

I can't even begin to stress how self-respecting Germanic women need to step up and take better care of themselves and not get sucked into the garbage modern attire. That doesn't mean that you have to look like you stepped out of a time machine. But there needs to be a revival of a classic, gracious woman in our respective societies.

I tend to wear mostly dresses or skirts, and I really wish other women would too. Not because every woman should look dowdy or boring, but because femininity is a good thing. Pants are okay, but there's a line that can be crossed making even the most attractive woman look like a man.

Obviously, this is just my opinion, and it is not meant to offend anyone.

I mostly wear "normal" clothes, ie polo-shirts, jeans and baskets. Haven't worn any sweatshirts for like 3 years.

Actually I nearly only have English clothes (though it's sadly surely produced somewhere in Asia) such as Fred Perry, Lyle&Scott and Lonsdale, not being dressed like the leftist hippies is a force for us IMO.

Sadly, hipsters seem to like that kind of clothes too ... Luckily I don't have their skinny bodies (and jeans) and weird glasses :D

I tend to wear a mix of all four :P when i have the time i may have my hair parted, and smart. I like to wear those subtle military pieces, i always wear boots, a black dyed german army coat with some band patches, jeans or cargo shorts/trousers. I always look slightly smart, unless at school were its shirt untucked and sleeves rolled up, my tie long but loose and a pair of boots tied half of the way usually. If i need to fight properly (nearly never, but has happened) i will take my shirt off :D

I've been into the casual style for many years now. Brands like CP Company, Belstaff, Pringle, Henri Lloyd, Sergio Tacchini etc. And a pair of Diadora or Adidas trainers to make the look complete...;)

I just wear white or black cotton shirts with different styles of blue jeans. Sometimes sweat pants for those cozy lounge around the living room days. And occasionally I'll wear khaki style pants with dress shirts on the weekends.

I'm a little "wigger'ish", but with a somewhat clear distinction from that. I wear quite a lot of clothes from Thor Steinar, and/or jewelery with a Norse style. Other than that, I fill out mostly with Timberland, Carhartt and some Ecko. Also some Burberry and Prada, if I find something out of their usual boring aristocrat looks that is. When it comes to accessories, like bags etc. - I stick to a more tactical approach. Just love it, but wouldn't want to look like a typical airsoft nerd or military fetishist.

In any case, I am becoming so old that it feels just silly chasing a "look" when it comes to clothing etc. I buy and wear what I know will last a long time, and that which is comfy and practical.

You are aware of the fact that the firm Lonsdale are donating considerable amounts each year to "anti-racist" or other left-wing causes? ;)

No I didn't know that. But I don't wear it because it has NSDA written on it or because it would make me look "right-wing" actually.

As I said, I like the English clothes style, and Lonsdale has it. That's it ;)

I'm totally a jeans and a t-shirt guy, I've never been very stylish. I'll occasionally wear a kilt if it's warm and not very windy.

If I had to pick, lately it's been the 1920-'45 NS Look (or better yet, just military look). I wear black jeans or black bdu pants most of the time tucked into 8 eye docs (getting 14's soon hopefully) , with this cool vintage jacket I bought (like a modern German m43 jacket, but denim and with plastic buttons). It's very discreet, and there's noting obscene about it, and with the music I listen to, it really fits my whole image.

As long as you find a style which is age-appropriate, neat, and suitable for the weather etcetera, you will surely be able to hold yourself well and make a good impression. I honestly think that what makes people come across negatively in terms of personal style is an inability to adapt it to circumstances. If you stick out too much it is probably not for good reasons. Few people can pull off sticking out from the crowd and still looking good! The impression you make on people will extend to the group you associate with too, so it's somewhat selfish not to try to present oneself as positively as possible.
I guess what I'm getting at is that if you want Germanics to look good, look good yourself!
