I just got these jeans and am having fun with red. I find this outfit has a great degree of cultural ambiguity. In San Francisco it is ‘culturally intelligible’ as mission hipster with some gender ambiguity. If I leave my island of white middle-class progressiveness I notice a lot of disapproving but not phobic gestures from working class or underclass men. Fashion seems to be policed more intensely in less privileged settings. On the other hand, I had three women approach and voice their support for my fashion statements.
