Polish Men and Fashion


Shelley  
10 Aug 2006 /  #1
I know this is quite a frivolous topic, but, I have noticed that Polish men are little lacking (to say the least) in dress sense / style! Whilst in Krakow I noticed that the men didn't really have any sense of fashion. They either just wore run o the mill jeans and a plain t-shirt or some really atrocious combat pants with the most horrific camouflage patten on them. The hair styles were uniformed - crew cut and that was it...I'm not saying they should have some of the ridiculous hair cuts they have in England, but a bit of variation would be nice. There also seems to be a lack of menswear shops too, whilst women’s shops were in abundance, which brings me on to the fact that Polish women put time and effort into looking good so why don’t the men???? I also noticed that the Polish pull their socks up a little bit too high when wearing shorts...jeez don’t you have trainer socks half of them looked like their mothers had dressed them! Of an evening nobody seemed to make an effort even in the really nice bars and clubs. I think Polish men really need to up their game where fashion is concerned....

I have to disagree. I`m dressing myself very fashionable.. but if you want to find men who, like in some W. European countries use makeup and lipstick, you`re on the wrong address.

I also don`t have a very short haircut.

I have to disagree

no change there then

I`m dressing myself very fashionable

It would depend what you call fashionable

W. European countries use makeup and lipstick

Wasnt referring to moshas or trannys - terrible

you`re on the wrong address.

I think you meant bus

It could also be a train.

I wasn`t refering only to the trannys.

It would depend what you call fashionable

Everything what looks good and is comfortable is always fashionable.

erything what looks good and is comfortable is always fashionable

but that is your opinion - I'm sure some of the people I see think they're very fashionable and looking good....I dont think they are

I also don`t have a very short haircut.

and a very nice hairdo it is!

you look slightly ginger are you?

Well, everything depends from the eye of the observer.

No that`s an optical illusion. I have brown hair.

I know, I just blew your head up to 400....orr and it's slightly wavy too, how cute

and I was joking when I made the ginger remark

Well, everything depends from the eye of the observer

and in my opinion that's a very important point, so you agree, just because you think you look fashionable - it's possible that others find you quite unfashionable

Not at all - my hair and eye color`s changing dependant on the light and the sun. The first can be anything from almost black to light brown, and the second can be gray, blue, green, depends how you see it.

Everything depends on something.

gray, blue, green,

that's not possible, whilst I have olive green eyes they go / look (almost cat like) lighter in the sun but I dont see how blue / grey eyes could go green....

black to light brown

how strange, dark hair doesnt usually lighten that much

Not at all

too many hair products then, it looks wavy

You got a point there, but I think that the situation is improving. You can see it perfectly observing the younger generation.

Of an evening nobody seemed to make an effort even in the really nice bars and clubs.

That's strange. I don't think that it's that dramatically where I live.

Krakow is a city where I would say a large proportion of the population are young and I saw nothing but a sea of jeans / t-shirts and bad combats and shorts with socks far to high up their legs.

That's strange. I don't think that it's that dramatically where I live

i live in a city and when I go out of a weekend or for that matter through the week, if I go to a smart bar - I expect to see guys dressing in something more than a t-shirt and jeans.

Shelley, the thing u wrote about socks and shorts is sooo true ha ha, some guys even wear socks and sandals which is really killing me!!! And not only me...

But i agree with Matyjasz, the situation is improving.

Oh i was fortunate not to see any in sandles with socks on, I just took it for granted that they were Germans!

But i agree with Matyjasz, the situation is improving.

I work in fashion so for me it was such a shock to see that the guys were dressed so badly - hopefully it wont take too long before they're up to speed...Ladies you need to give a bit of guidance in some cases - it was such a shame seeing such cute boys dressed in such a poor manner (poor = just dressed really boring)

Since they don't have that many men's shops, that's all they can find.

Only too bad they them.

I mean only too bad they have any men's shops at all! I wouldn't mind seeing them walking around in their birthday suits.

I must disagree about lack of men's clothing supply. I live in Wroclaw and I've seen a number of good shops.

I guess the problem lies in the comfort that a uniform gives. If you wear jeans and T-shirts, everything matches and you don't have to be thinking about colours, style ect. Same goes for the haircut - ease of maintenance over the looks.

I'd also like to mention that in many cases the above uniform is accompanied by a pair of (cheap) white trainers... Yuck!

I've heard the original Polish trend in fashion is so-called "Dresiarstwo" - what are the main characteristics? Are Polish Men good "dresiarz"?

Here is an example of a Polish men fashion for summer...

It seems to me Wojek Dobre Rada is too young to provide good advice..

You have no idea about fashion..
OP Shelley

Oh I think I have a better idea than you, I'll give you a run down on the most recent trends if you like or I'll tell you what men are going to be wearing in AW06 or just have a look if you like.

here you go....you never know you might even learn something - bechgynnos, m

topman.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/TopCategoriesDisplay?s toreId=12555&catalogId=17551

This looks as if it would be made for children

oh righ a striped top is childish as for the socks...sorry you keep wearing your gray and white knee lengh!

..nerds..

It funky and with the right jeans/trouser it could look good - but I suppose you just have to have to confidence to carry it off!

..pimps..

Im not really into men in waistcoats so - fare point.

..and gays

I know lots of men who are not gay who wear pink shirts this one is pinstripe and is one of our best sellers!

A fine example of how men would look like if they would be dressed by women.

women wouldn't have to dress boys if they had some fashion sense
