tbf the infantilization of menswear started when wearing sneakers to work became acceptable. For women’s fashion it’s yoga pants & big boots and stuff I think

OTOH: When kid was 2ish I started noticing via playground anthropology that little boys just dressed like miniature dads, with slightly more superhero-themed graphic tees but overall the same types and colors of clothes. Little girls are in head-to-toe pink and purple and tulle skirts etc. which, somewhat sadly, is not how the moms roll.

"yoga pants & big boots"

I hadn't been in the US in a year and was taken aback by how many people dress like they are about to hit the gym or fix a vending machine at a moment's notice. I did't know you needed to wear head to toe under armour fitness apparel just to sit on an airplane.

Well it depends on how far away the vending machine repair gig is

I am such a jerk. A couple of years ago this terrible guy in my group quit. On his last day of work at our very corporate office, when all you really have to do is show up, straighten stuff up and and leave after your exit interview, he shows up in baggy, dad jeans, t-shirt and a loud Giants jacket. I saw him in the pantry and asked if he was there to fix the vending machine. I was his manager so this probably makes sense why he quit.

i do appreciate the idgaf wardrobe choice of your coworker on his last day. Was it a plain t-shirt or did it have a spicy message?

Nah, he was a mid 40s year old white dude, so it was totally boring schlub wear. I think he thought the Giants jacket was edgy.

But hey, maybe more middle age white guys need to take a chance on shiny, shiny nylon jackets in primary colors.

if they really want to be "edgy" they would wear onesies in public

i have a friend who once dated a guy (in his 20s, but still) who had a GUNS N ROSES ONESIE

There wasa fashion from the mid 60s that people circulated photos of a few years ago. Seemed to be a top designer putting forth toddler clothing as youth wear. I can't find photos so far but do remember seeing them a while back, a bunch of young female models dressed as 4 year olds.
Trying to think of search terms.

seems like a great way to end up on a watch list tbh

I was about to say who on earth wants to fuch someone dressed like a toddler, but then realized I am only speaking for women.

About 1/4 of that stuff is stuff you’d wear as an “adult,” another 1/4 is stuff you’d be unsurprised to see on a younger “adult,” and the rest is just fashion forward, albeit less meaningful when worn by a being who probably has no choice in their daily attire

So basically I think the thread title’s implicit dichotomy is false and I’ve already told you how to prove me wrong and it’s not gonna be in the men’s section

are you like a fashion flat earther or something? you don't believe that clothing has cuts or bodies have proportions?

next you'll tell me the color wheel is a social construct

a red t shirt and shorts isn't really "toddler style"
