If you watch Saturday Kitchen Best Bites on a Sunday Morning, you get occasional glimpses of the Saturday Kitchen set from the early days when James Martin presented it.

The guests (a celebrity, a couple of chefs and two members of the public who wear badges with their names on) sit at a desk which looks like it was knocked up from bits of old newsreader's podium - Formica, MDF, brushed aluminium trim, and the backdrop is a whitewashed rubble wall.

I can't find any pictures of it online, sadly - but for me, the contrast between this and the current set sums up the aesthetic difference between now and the turn of the century.

2000s - Teletubbies

2010s - Hollyoaks

Hollyoaks was the 2000s grandad

Edit: fuck me! it actually started in 1995!

To those who say you can't tell what the current aesthetic is that will date and look bad once it's over - modern suits are far too skinny on the lower half of the leg.

Speaking of suits; they were all made of tartan/checkered cloth in the 2010s.

I had some bootcut jeans up until about 5 years ago (probably less) when a friend took me to one-side and explained that you don't wear them anymore (like I was being informed of a personal hygiene problem).  Now I'm a skinny jeaned freak which doesn't feel right because I'm 41[1]; is there anyway to win at this jeans game[2]
 1. though, and YES LMAC I am being smug, the other night someone said they couldn't believe it and thought I was early 30s - this was someone that was off their face on Ket admittably but I'm holding onto this with everything I've got for now
 2. yes and I think I've found it skinny but not too skinny

I think skinny jeans are fine at any age, just fashion in general it's either for kids or adults (sometimes both). Imho if something looks embarrassing to wear in your 40s, it's embarrassing to wear at any adult age.

Hmmm I'm not sure this is quite how fashion works; though I take your point I dread the thought of having a subscribed dress code based on age so like your man below you gotta make it work for you.

Absolute dapper.

Funnily enough though I would look and feel like a complete bell end wearing a casual waistcoat whilst this guy pulls it off like an original G.

Bollocks, he looks like a smug old fuck and if he was younger youse'd be laying into him for sporting the exact same look. You've tempered your disgust with pity and it's evolved into admiration. Where's the CAB of the Captain Tom threads?!

At least the two fellas in the other picture don't look like they're trying to get people to talk about them.

I feel like I would potentially wear "look at me and how cool my clothes are" outfits, if this hadn't been rubbed out of me through high-school uniform policies. I used to be very interested in showcasing elements of my personality through eye-catching clothes. I think this is a shame, really; I always admire snappy dressers.

Bet he was a right handsome bastard in his day, could wear any old shit and look good, now in his old age he’s had to have a word with himself and make over, like John waters says about being old and stylish

Sure, I'm not saying it's the be-all and end-all, I just wonder if there's a similarly cohesive, dominant aesthetic for the 2000s and 2010s, and I think there probably isn't largely because the internet has fractured the dominant media forces and has sped up the rate at which new cultures, subcultures and aesthetics develop, fall or mutate into something else.

I think you have it there for me, trends/stuff comes and goes so quickly now

"look at me and how cool my clothes are"

this is literally just normal human self-expression. clothes are fun and cool and if you put a lot of effort into a look it's not uncommon to want positive interest. i notice men often have a bizarre suspicion of clothes and fashion and not looking dogshit (not aimed at anyone)

If someone said that to me not only would I laugh in their face and tell them to fuck off into hell, I would double down and bootcut everything, my legs, my house, my kids. Absolute wankers telling other people what they should or shouldn't be wearing.

Yesterday I saw a lad wearing an Atlanta 1996 Olympics top, and it struck me he was probably born nearly ten years after those Olympics happened.

It looked cool, but it also struck me that if I wore it rather than looking cool I'd just look like I hadn't bought any clothes since 1996.

Vintage stuff is absolutely huge with the kids at the mo. I was wearing old sports clothes, tennis shirts, golf jumpers etc. a decade ago and they were dirt cheap because no one wanted them, but now all that stuff is nearly as expensive as buying new designer gear.

It's already been the 20th anniversary of those twisted levis taking the jeans world by storm - https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/levis-engineered-jeans. I had several pairs, they were a good cut.

Everyone looks ridiculous in the skinny ones, even actual young skinny folk, it's an atrocious spectacle that requires the bin.

Are you sure it's still in? Vintage sports stuff was in 10 years ago!

You seen what undergrads look like at the moment? They are absolutely all to a man decked out in vintage stuff now whereas ten years ago it weren't like that at all.

Well I was thinking he could also be a solid nonce now you've asked.
