Do "fashionable" Polish kids wear them? Are there any Quiksilver, Volcom, Roxy clothes you see on the street?

another question I'm sure I'm going to get blasted for somewhere.. sometime.. since I am really ignorant about this process.
How does ordering something in Poland through the internet, from US company work? Is the currency exchange, import taxes, declarations etc... a seamless process? Do you have to pick up the package at customs?

The postman brings it to your door. If you are not there he leaves a note and you collect it at the post office.

Many people try to order from another EU-country. Because you don't have to pay import taxes and other strange fees.

If you buy from US you have to pay import taxes etc. But I don't think it's an extremely complicated process (but complications can occur). But as far as I know you don't have to pick it up at the customs. You can let Poczta Polska (avoid!) or another transporter deliver it to your home etc.

Unfortunately, yes, though they make kids look so stupid.

I am probably too old and conservative.

Which clothes in particular make them look stoopid?
Their pants make more sense than the skin-tight jeans I used to wear...

F stop - what's wrong with a good pair of skinny jeans especially if they go with nice pair of boots and good woolie blazer???

Skinny jeans are bang up to date here in the uk,but surf/skate gear for kids isn't as popular as it was a few years back. Don't think hoodies are going out of fashion anytime soon though.

LOL pawian! I can't see in your picture, but he should wear a pair of boxers as a shirt!
Pam - I was a slave to fashion so I wore them too, but they were not very comfortable when sitting down most of the day.

Strzyga - you might have something there. Hammertime?

Yes, I see lots of inspiration coming from the Cossacks culture.Nothing new, really.

actually, the surf/skate long pants seem to be getting back to skinny jeans, but even then the fit on top is much more relaxed than it used to be.

I'm very glad to be out of fashion race, anyway :)
If I wear long pants now, they're usually linen drawstring. Gotta love Florida!

However, I do have a bunch of new enterpreneurs around me making new clothes, sponsoring new athletes, that's why I originally asked.

Dear female poster friends,

Those baggy trousers you have presented are called sindbads or alladins. They were fashionable a year or two ago but don`t belong to surf/skate garb.
