Omiru Poll Results: Plaid is In AND Out

Omiru Poll Result: Plaid is In And Out

PlaidWe asked: Is Plaid In or Out?

You said: Plaid is a mixed bag.  The breakdown?  40% are pro-Plaid, and 38% are anti-Plaid.  The remaining 22% believe the trend is already on the way out.

Omiru’s take: Plaid has that old school All American appeal–think of woodsy summers at camp between years at prep school in New Hampshire.  It’s one of those classic prints (where would Burberry be without plaid?) that’s always going to be around.  This season, however, plaid’s having a party, spreading beyond the prep school crowd.  While some like the distinctive print, some like it not.  We’d chalk up it’s "In" status to it’s classic roots.  But those who crashed the plaid party this season have realized that the A-listers have moved on.  Party over.

Next Question: We observed an anti-fur demonstration outside Neiman Marcus after yesterday’s Elevation Salon AIDS Walk fundraiser. Tell us, what do you think about fur?  Is it In, or is
it Out?  Cast your vote on

    I defintately don’t think plaid is out or going out. I think it’s headed for a huge boom. Alot of men are loving it. Woman have always loved it. And more so, it is cute on kids.

    Thanks for your input. Plaid is one of those classics that rises and wanes in popularity…but always seems to be appropriate.

    And yes, it is cute on kids :)
