Im sure emo or indie guys go for the emo/indie look :P I think skinny jeans are alright, but I find that..well...they all look the same. So when girls start wearing things like that, they all start to look the same! And to me, that's utterly boring. But on the right body, they can certainly be incredible, and I do love legs so I can't hate skinny jeans.
And converse...if they were good enough for Doctor Who, they are good enough for the rest of us!
