    The tight jeans and suspenders look is the standard dress for the skin heads along with very tight T shirts . For the gay crowd sums it up if you are cute and ripped just ditch the shirt and the speedo has always been a gay standard swimwear .

      I think gays should make all nazi fashion into fabulous gay fashion, just to piss them off.

      Sadly the skinhead culture originally had nothing to do with nazis (neo or otherwise) it was just a subculture of disaffected youth which stood for working class pride (sort of a counter culture to the hippie movement which was growing at the same time). It wasn’t until the ’80s that the most vocal among them (the neo nazis) became the ‘face’ of the movement. There are people out there who are still trying to rock the look (and to an extent, the ideals) of first wave skinheads, but it has been tainted.

    Speedo? New??? In what universe? That just comes and goes.

    • OzJosh

      In what universe is ripped jeans new?! They’ve been unavoidable for 25 years. The list is bollocks.

    • dm10003

      In what universe does “trend” mean new?

  • Captain Obvious

    I’m shocked the romper thing didn’t garner another abdl article all it’s own from this site.

  • leobaga

    Thanks, Queerty, for not banning Trump supporters. Freedom of speech baby. #MAGA

  • leobaga

    Shirts off with natural body is the new trend. Overly muscular is out.

    • truckproductions

      barf… no.

  • dm10003

    These are mostly pre-trend tendencies.

  • stuffedpuppy

    I agree entirely! The first wave of skinheads have been “dragged through the mud” for far too long! Having been demonized by those neo-nazis/white supremacist morons has made a look that many found and still find quite aesthetically pleasing…menacing.
    If those right wing-nuts knew they dressed in a style that is still considered homoerotic (in SO many circles) they just might convert…lol Such repression…
    Who said that cognitive dissonance wasn’t the very pillar of fashion?
