book full of hipster fashion critiques. If you're familiar with the Vice Dos and Dont's, Street Boners follows the same premise
in which everyday people are caught by the camera and their fashion choices given short "evaluations".
No one is above judgement, from the tragically hip to everyday people caught in the crossfire. The commentary is smart, funny and always seems to be paired perfectly with the individuals in question. You'll be laughing to yourself more than once.
What I really liked is the book balances the visuals elements with some great written content; spot-on analysis of fashion trends over the years, tips for dressing yourself, and some short Q&A with lifestyle photographers such as LA's Cobrasnake. Mcinnes offers the reader his brand of humor which is sure to offend the politically correct, sensitive types, or college students.
This is a pretty thick book and would be good to take on a flight or keep you company in the bathroom. There's a LOT of funny content in here and you'll need more than one sitting to get through it all. Fortunately the book has been laid out so you don't feel overwhelmed. I recommend just opening and skipping around a bit before you attempt a cover-to-cover.
Again, don't let the reviews written by some bitter college kids steer you away. Street Boners is scathing, hilarious, and engaging all at once. Worth the price of entry.
There wer some funny comments but most we just "meh" observations on "med" pictures.
A little editing down of material would have made this better.
There were a few pictures that were just gross, but for the most part it was pretty tasteful. And if you're familiar with Vice Magazine, you're probably expecting that anyway.
There were so many pictures in here that I had to dogear to show other people because I just had to validate that I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. I think some of these pictures can only be explained because the people wearing the outfits don't own mirrors... Some of them were just hilarious, like they tried really hard but just missed one very important part.
Not to say that I'm the best dressed person around (believe me I'm far from it), but if I ever decide to leave the house in some of these outfits, just lock me up.
While the outfits were entertaining enough they added comments to make it that much better. I laughed out loud quite a few times with this one. It was a perfectly executed picture book. Although some of the Do's took me a minute to figure out what they did right, as at first look they appeared to be Don'ts but once I figured out their rational behind the ratings things just started to fall into place.
Very entertaining! It was also a great one to share with others to get their reactions to some of the Don'ts. I think a fun night could be had by all just passing around this book. And if you have a friend that's a don't I think this book may help with the fashion intervention.
