Only this morning I was saying to a friend that "whoever came up with the term 'Banter boots' for the JLS boots deserves a medal." And then I come home to find this article in my inbox and calls from readers to oust these chumps on BNTL.
This has to be a piss take? It wouldn't even get a pass on April Fools day. JLS as Style Icons??? Wtf is wrong with you people. GQ is a deadout publication, Dylan Jones is the most uncultured fashion editor in history and it seems they've got some A-level 'fashion' students to start telling the world about fashion.
Here's some of my favourtie quotes from the article...
"I argue with stylists about hats. They have to be a certain kind of hat, at a certain angle, or else it won't work."
"I wear these Reeboks [high-tops] everywhere. I'm trying to keep them clean but it's so hard. All the Classics are really thin and light, even though they look bulky."
"Earrings are a big thing for me"
"Being real, nobody rocked the bow tie in pop music till JB [JLS member] did it in "Beat Again". You inspire fashion, bruv. That's the truth. Nobody rocked Dr Martens till JB rocked them in "One Shot". Even I had to rock them the other day because of JB."
"Just want to put this out there: these [low V-neck] T-shirts now? When did everyone start wearing these? JLS. Because we did it."
"It gives me a regal edge, you know? I'm comfortable with that."
"Let her come to the table or send over a tray of drinks, while you have the bottle sitting there, so they know where it's come from. Then you offer her a seat…"
Read the rest of the piece HERE. These guys are living a lie.
You might try and call me out on this one but all i'm saying is wear what you want but dont run your mouth like your the gospel. Its blatently obvious that if they stepped out of their little bubble they'd get eaten alive on these streets.
