I'm not really sure if this is really a metal-related enough topic to be in this subforum, but meh, seems like it could make some interesting discussion...

Anyways, thoughts on metal clothing or whatever? Anybody follow it? Anybody strongly against it?

Personally, I don't really dress like how metalheads are usually portayed, 'sides the occasional band shirt. It's always awesome seeing a group of long-haired drunk f*cks with Obituary shirts if you live in the suburbs where 3OH!3 is playing everywhere you go, though.

Pretty much just tshirts/hoodies for me. Fairly apathetic towards the rest of it, but seeing lads in huge black boots and all black clothing, with chains hanging off them, complete with metal tshirt that has a ridiculous slogan on the back is pretty hilarious. Calm the head like.

i.e. a Devourment tshirt that says something like 'I MOLEST BABIES' or something, on the back. Really no need, makes you look like a wally.

I just have random band t-shirts and hoodies and wear jeans or shorts if its hot
^thats probably sarcasm^

Quote by kpatterson14206
Death Metal bands are very simple, little to no vocal schemes, just normal, mono-tone, monotonous growling and an assload of breakdowns.

i like the t-shirts and stuff, but when it gets really heavy into leather and spikes and black pants and stuff, then i don't like it.

Yeah, just shirts for me. It's much more comfortable than the ridiculous ear/nose rings and extremely tight jeans.


Only the few can pull this off.

I sporty around a Devilock with a six in fringe Random band Tee's jeans or Camo shorts. And Skate shoes, I agree with Stanglehold on the topic but sometimes its OK if it's part of the stage presence...That really drifted off from the point..here's the good news, I'm sorry

Long hair, camo shorts, classic rock or metal t-shirt, and my Eddie Van Halen shoes. Oh, and either a Judas Priest or Skid Row belt buckle on a studded belt. When it's cold, I wear 80's style tight jeans. On stage I wear pleather pants.

Just jeans/maybe shorts and a band tee really. The ones that overdo it (eg what Stranglehold said in his first response) just make me laugh.

we discovered that band tshirts are a handy way of keeping track of your friends at festivals. As its not "find a person with long hair and a black tshirt in a crowd of 10000 people" but its "find a guy with Destruction shirt and a guy with an Arch Enemy shirt and a hat"

also, beanies are f'n metal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NakrJiTl2v8&feature=PlayList&p=181D2BE81FBCFE53&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=91

Real metallurs wear cardboard gauntlets.



Too bad none of you are nekrokvlt enough to know what band that is.

This is exactly how I look when I head to the grocery store
I often get weird looks though
Other planes lie beyond the reach
Of normal sense and common roads
But they are no less real
Than what we see or touch or feel

Anyway, for me, just jeans (somewhat tight, although not penis suffocatingly tight), long hair, t-shirt and converse high-tops. And in the winter a leather jacket. And I suppose if I'm feeling especially cult (sitting in my room eating gold fish, listening to Destruction, Blasphemy, or Beherit and playing Battle For Middle Earth 2 with my step brother), a bullet belt.

And Chrisgrinder, that's Maniac Butcher.

the only look i go after is band shirt, jeans, converse hightops, studded belt, and longer hair. You don't want to go over the top unless you are on stage playing in front of a crowd you are comfortable in front of.

I wear jeans, t-shirts (some with bands, most not) or polos, a belt, and medium-length hair.

Who the fuck cares?

Most people wouldn't think that I listen to metal when they look at me...

I have short hair, usually wear shorts (mostly plad), although I wear jeans on occasion. Most of the time I will be wearing a band tee, and I have regular black wal-mart shoes, that are covered in paint.

kvlt.

Unless your actually performing, say in a black metal band (and at your own event) you shouldn't be getting all dressed up to be "metal." A band shirt, a stud belt, and some other small accessories are acceptable. When a person dresses up in a full get up, then they are going into the realm of retarded.

My fashion sense has nothing to do with metal music at all.

Long hair, band shirts and camo pants are not for me, personally.
