Peter is definitely giving CREEPER here, it’s hilarious. Lurking HARD. But he does have his mysterious, rich-boy-with-dark-secrets allure. Don’t worry, that allure completely disintegrates by Season 6. Enjoy this spiky hair and overly preppy attire while it lasts.
This is a very Craiggy episode, so enjoy this giant fashion spread. Sadly his style isn’t TOO much to speak of, but like I’ve said before, it’s very realistic of a teenage rocker boy from the time. Not overstylized, as he’s focused on other things. He does KIND of look simulated sometimes with all these obvious yet abstract graphic “rocker” tees, like the headphones one. But I really feel like those jeans and shoes are Jake’s. And maybe that Headbangers Ball shirt too 🙂 Also, please note the outfit he wears for the wedding his band plays at. It’s like, 70s reminiscent, but this time for good reason since they’re playing “funk”. Man, what do you guys think here, when it comes to how Craig is treating Ellie? What an icky triangle.
As we often do, we wrap up this episode with Toby. Even though he has spiked hair and baggy clothes, he still looks like a nerd somehow. But yeah his style is a nice example of a neutral 2000s norm – where as JT is much more preppy.
For today’s Rando Roundup, we see this white dude with braids and a beanie, lookin at his flip phone and ogling Manny. Then a shot of some guys huddled around a computer, all wearing baggy attire. And finally, a shot on the front steps demonstrating some flares and cross body bags.
More evidence for JT’s preppy-boy stage, as demonstrated here with these layered collars and shaggy hair. OMG and that butt-sniffing video he is watching really grosses me out. Still, isn’t it wild that we have been watching funny memey videos on the internet since at least 2005? Isn’t that when YouTube was created? Wild. Wait, JT isn’t even hooked up to the internet here. He must have downloaded that sh*t on KaZaA or something.
Craig “We Hung Out All Summer” Manning is treating Ellie so badly that we maybe should be worried. Honestly I’ve never seen him more filled with rage at any woman. Why her? Why hate HER so much? It’s clear he’s got no respect for her, yet it’s unclear why he’s even her friend. What are they friends about? Anyway, first he’s in a leather jacket and red tee, then he’s in an Irish looking green tee and baggy jeans. And I’m still sad he doesn’t have that cool shag haircut anymore.
Oh, hey! I took about a week off from posting because I ran out of storage space here on my site. I use WordPress, and I had filled up my Personal plan to the limit. I thought I was on Premium already and thought I couldn’t afford the next upgrade. Turns out I only had Personal, so now I’ve upgraded to Premium, and hope to have a few more years of doing this with y’all! I mean, I have like 14 more seasons to cover! Let’s hope Premium gets me through that!
Anyway, I’ve got the rando roundup for you today. First is the Tankini Tramp, who reminds me of Sara Paxton. Then is this group shot of the Grade 8s (I know, they’re older now) which is undeniably awesome. Ya know, I tend not to question these pants. Ever. Because those were the only pants I knew at the time and still feel like “normal” pants to me, even as trends changed. But like… objectively… do they look.. BAD?! Ill-fitting, even? Unflattering? Well, even if they do, skinny jeans are MUCH worse.
I had to include this mannequin shot because you can see the low-riseness of the pants, the tightness of the shirt, and that grommet belt, oof. Also at the mall, Manny is looking at this girl wearing a low-rise mini skirt, and the girl is also wearing the wig that Manny tries on… yeaaaah y’all can’t get anything past me!! I’m onto your secrets! Also at the mall is this gorgeous blonde with fillers and heavy makeup, also a miniskirt. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I still love and always have loved that golden Playboy blonde color that’s currently “out”. It’ll be back, just you watch.
Why do all the adults wear 70s-inspired clothes? Huge collars and bell sleeves? Does the wardrobe dept do that on purpose to show they’re from a different generation? Anyway, this rude receptionist for Bernice wears a terribly uncomfortably looking tweed blazer over a collar that reaches the ends of her shoulders. Gross.
Back at school, we see an assortment of cross-body bags and messenger bags. At the hot-girls-only party, Tankini Tramp Sara Paxton is apparently friends with Emma now, and her bra straps are hangin out – a favorite look! And finally.. the vodka guy is kinda gross, isn’t he?
Marco lookin like he came back from a pilgrimage over break. He looks like an art student from my college, except much more meticulously curated and put together. Honestly, the look seems too intentional-looking to seem like a believable hippie or world traveler. BUT let me also say, I do like it. Marco’s always got something to say with his style and I appreciate that. So many dudes around here don’t dress special, so Marco stands out. His hair is curled, his pants are cuffed super weirdly, and he wears this ornate tunic lookin top with many necklaces. At The Dot he looks like some sort of foreign athlete in this.. gosh, what kind of hat even is this? and a zip up jacket. He’s got swag for real.
DTNGFASHION S4E21: Goin’ Down the Road Part 1 Aired: 2005
Here’s our favorite celebrity homewrecker, Kevin Smith, in action! I can still barely wrap my head around how weird all this is. Yeah so first we have Kevin as Silent Bob, wearing all baggy everything, a backwards cap, and a hair fall. Then he’s out here wooing Caitlin wearing more baggy stuff, and maybe a tiny baby mullet?
