We were wearing rainbow suspenders waaay before Mork and Mindy, and we’ll be wearing rainbow suspenders long after Pam Dawber is nothing but a lowly B-list TV star. That’s how committed we are to our rainbow suspenders. Get it?

Right now? Acid jeans. I wish that would die. I wear classic vintage cocktail dresses, which don’t ever go out of style. I like it when men wear nice-fitting jeans. Most men just pull jeans on and don’t pay attention to how they fit. I like it when they’re not too tight, but not too loose. And anything but acid washed.
Josh Where he presides: Crocodile Lounge, Gramercy Park Favorite drink: Jameson [Laughter] Hipster 80s revival, I guess. You know, old bright neon shoes, guys in shorts with their asses hanging out. Actually, I’m not sure if that’s 80s. Let me retract that. How about super-tight spandex hipster jeans? [What about a style you’d like to return?] Hmm, hey Colin? What’s a fashion trend you’d like to see return? [Colin, without hesitating: “Shoulder pads.”] Shoulder pads it is
RENE Where she presides: Whiskey Ward, LES Favorite drink: Jameson
I’m really, really tired of seeing people in leggings. It’s just inappropriate. I wish nice suits would come back.

I like the 80s hair on girls, that’s a good trend, with the bangs. But on guys it’s terrible.

I guess those sunglasses with the lines through them. You know, those plastic lines? They’re stupid. They don’t make sense; you can’t even see out of them! [What about a trend you would like to see return?] Um… I guess the 80s. 80s style, like the side ponytail. Aw, come on. It was cute.

Let’s see… for either gender? I guess Crocs. You know what I mean by Crocs? I just don’t like them. I don’t care for the colors. I mean, sandals are one thing, rubber shoes are another. I mean, I’m sure they’re very comfortable and everything, but all they are is pressed rubber.
