This forum says it includes art, so I thought I would post this here.

It seems in modern times, we have lost an appetite for art and good looking fashion. There are good designers out there but I think most stuff nowadays is bland, conservative, and only functional.

It seems like as we get more, "high-tech," we get less away from fashion, which I find to be disturbing. For one thing, we're all getting so fat in America that it's hard for most of us to wear fitted shirts and other types of form fitting clothing. I think if we all started becoming more fashion conscious, it would encourage us to lose weight. I hate clothes that are overly baggy like that hip hop look because they look bad and it also encourages people to gain weight. I tend to like thin women. I've dated fat girls but I like women who are built like super models. I don't like overly skinny women but just women who have curvey figures but are still thin.

Anyway, I like clothes and I wonder if fashion actually reached it's height back in the 18th century.

Would you wear 18th century clothing to work every day, if you could?

No way. Women typically didn't wear pants back then, and I'm much more comfortable in a pair of jeans. I don't mind wearing skirts, but no way would I wear full length skirts with petticoats underneath.

They didn't even wear shorts back then! As a Southerner, the thought of not wearing shorts in the summer isn't even conceivable. :mrgreen:

Ok, that makes a bit more sense...I mean, you said you like the curvy ladies, so it sure wouldn't make sense for you to suggest they cover up and hide those curves!!

In your opinion we would, but many others disagree

I find that rather good, things waste less resources, and are cheaper.

Again, some think its fashionable, I don't agree a lot of it is.
For one thing, we're all getting so fat in America that it's hard for most of us to wear fitted shirts and other types of form fitting clothing
Actually, a majority of people aren't fat. And some are also way too skinny.

Some people think its fashionable to be fat(don't ask me who). But also this can bring in a bad result too, because some may take it as we must be skinny as can be, which is also very unhealthy.
I hate clothes that are overly baggy like that hip hop look because they look bad
I think they look bad too, but that's my opinion.
I tend to like thin women
Its better to be just right than thin or fat.

No, they are usually overly bulky, quite expensive, and a waste of resources. I myself think early 20th cen. is fashionable.
