Tracky's........nike-air max!!..JAAASSUUSS!

one thing struck me when i was in town today....those fellas who walka round in all tracksuit type clothes.... nike air max etc.....trying not to be sterotypical here but 'knackers!!'.....

Do girls actually go for that look anymore?.....in all fairness...the state of them ..god!

ive talked to alot of girls about this and they all think its a bit ofa turn off..

It depends on the when/where it's worn.

I'm doing a sports science degree in uni. and a lot of my class mates will wear sports gear, tracksuit bottoms etc. to class. and that's fine as it's comofortable and allows us to do our lab/practical work with minimum fuss.

However the guys you see around town going about their "business" in tracksuits, baseball caps etc. is quite a turn off. Many of them don't carry themselves particularly well and I suppose it's an unfortunate stereotype but many of 'em seem to be kind of "skangery" not a "style" I'm particularly a fan of

Often wondered, it the rest of us (despite ourselves) look to girls in magazines, tv, movies ect. for our inspiration in terms of hair and make-up and generally don't look the same as we did ten years ago, then why do you see these 'ladies' in air max, tracksuit bottoms shining like the sun, big creole earings and soveirgns, perms with wetlook gel. WHERE do they get their inspiration from ? And they're everywhere !

I can honestly say that I've never owned a full tracksuit. I do have jogpants for the gym, but that's the extent of it.

What I fail to get is the fortune that these so-called "welfare" people spend on their clothes. A Nike tracksuit can be easily E100, not to mention the shoes.

Might be a bit predujice here but i do put a tracksuit, shaved head & nike air max in the "knackers" category.. Fine when we were kids, even when i was a teenager i might wear a tracksuit in shopping on a saturday afternoon but when i see people my own age (early 20's) wearing tracksuits, going shoppin i just think knacker.

Don't go biting my head off but i think ye'll know what i mean.

Girls wearing the cotton hypster bottoms ala Juicy Couture is perfectly acceptable although I personally think that the velour version should be left to Jordan.

i don't think theres anything wrong with tracksuit bottoms going shopping or going down town.. depends how you wear it and with what.. also if worn with skanger hair and loads of jewellery does look bad, but then again so does everything..

think that look might be down to jlo and her ghetto image..

Ever Been on the 46A? "Stupid" and "Unoriginal" describe nearly all the teenagers getting on that bus between deansgrange and UCD. Except instead of tracksuits and fake burberry its all hula hula skirts and blue checked shirts in the evenings or "nope" pants and rugby jerseys (with the collar up) for that elusive "Sports Casual" look.

Kids will be kids and they just want to fit in. Hence they go with what the crowd is wearing.
