I guess I just sort of assume that we all know the basics of how fashion trends move from the cutting edge to the masses, and that we don't have to have the same discussion over and over about how flannel (or chuck taylors or black nail polish or whev) is stylish sometimes and not stylish at others, depending on your cultural group, and that some people "don't care about fashion", which really means that they have a set personal style that doesn't change much, or they are a member of a subculture with a set stylistic influence.
(And, yeah. Now I'm solidly 2009.)
