What will be the fashion style of Atlanta this fall?
Brooklyn: Mainstream fashion in Atlanta is going to get crappier and crappier. Things just continue to get recycled. The '80s is the current trend. There's little inspiration for something different or creative. Atlanta fashion is very eclectic, which is very cool. Atlanta is different from New York or D.C. in that it's always pretty casual. It's the laid-back South.
Juanos: Retro, the preppie look. I'm from England, and there you just do your style and let it flow. The guys in this city want to look like college boys; that backward cap with the muscle shirt or T-shirt and the baggy cargo jeans or real tight jeans but torn in different spots. It's very bizarre. I feel sorry for the women. They dress very posh. The females are six years ahead in fashion, the guys are about 10 years behind.
Jake: I think everybody is going to start looking like me. A lot of punk rockers are transforming into rock 'n' roll kids trying to cut their hair like mine. Dangling earrings are in and wear your clothes tight, your hair long, and dye your hair. The girls are wearing them high heels and tight pants again. None of the flair-out stuff anymore. It's all about the straight legs and old cowboy shirts.
