I’m not sure if anyone on this forum would be interested in discussing fashion, but what do you guys think about the clothing choices of the three most recent eras?
The American Idiot era was when they started having a distinctive look. They wore a lot of ties and blazers. A lot of black, red, and white to go with the AI album art. The black shirt with a red tie has become an iconic look for Billie Joe (even though my favorite is a black shirt with white tie ). They also started wearing eyeliner regularly during this era.
During the 21st Century Breakdown era, they wore a lot of leather jackets and black T-shirts. More all-black, classic rock star outfits to go with another serious album. I think this is the era when Billie started wearing patches on his shirts and jackets, which was cool.
Then they started incorporating more colors and prints to go with the “fun” vibe of the trilogy. I think some of the outfits were really cool, but some of them overused prints. There was a lot of leopard print, houndstooth, checkers, stripes, etc. They combined prints a lot and sometimes it was too much. I also wasn’t really a fan of Mike’s long hair.
