 Fashion
The European idea of fashion as a personal statement rather than a cultural expression begins in the 16th century: ten portraits of German or Italian gentlemen may show ten entirely different hats.
Fashions among upper-class Europeans began to move in synchronicity in the 18th century; though colors and patterns of textiles changed from year to year, (Thornton), the cut of a gentleman's coat and the length of his waistcoat, or the pattern to which a lady's dress was cut changed more slowly.
Men's fashions derived from military models, and changes in a European male silhouette are galvanized in theatres of European war, where gentleman officers had opportunities to make notes of foreign styles: an example is the "Steinkirk" cravat (see Cravat).

 Fashion-Incubator: Industrial sewing machines
Industrial machines have a longer life and are readily repaired with stock parts available from most suppliers.
Posted by: Gigi at November 30, 2005 03:34 PM The scariest thing about an industrial sewing machine is changing the motor when it burns out and if used a lot (6 hours of use a day, which some of mine get) it will someday.

 Definition of Punk fashion
Punk fashion is a fashion style largely associated with the punk movement during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
A classic punk fashion look might consist of: a pair of combat boots, motorcycle boots or Doctor Martens boots, tight jeans or tight leather pants worn with a ripped T-shirt and silver bracelets.
Even though true punk has no fashion, the people who try to dress all these ways are "posers" in true punks' eyes, thus called "punk by the book," based on the song by the post-punk band, Anti-Flag.
