    Is it going to be possible to see regular dull people with extremely average sense of fashion in any of these types of videos? I see them walking around the neighborhood all the time, why not edit them in for like 10 seconds. Are we forever doomed to see lace curtains make the fashion statement, “I’m a unique snowflake that nobody can comprehend.”

      Why would they showcase average fashion? You can see that anywhere. People want to see what makes the neighborhood unique, not what makes it like any other place.

    Seems a lot of people think Fashion (capital F) means setting yourself apart. These people usually live in cities, where there are a lot of decently dressed, fashionable folks (small f). The result, is the Fashion people dress like idiots, because it’s the only way to set themselves apart…

    Or they’re all from Iceland. In which case…. okay.

      Some people just like to get creative with their outfits. Don’t be a snob dude, originality is cool!

    Is it just me or do all the people they interviewed sound like they’re from SoCal?

    I have to admit, that TLC cut is fierce.

    This is a pretty terrible representation of people in the Mission.
