Dinda is on time, grinning broadly, wearing a turquoise-colored longsleeve, a jacket with brown elbow-patches, over it. In the breast pocket of his jacket he carries a pen, wears bright green socks, gray trousers and leather shoes.
We asked him what he thinks of the current trends like Baseball and creepers, what his biggest fashion sin was and how he has found his style.
Describe your style.
Still in style.
Can style be taught?
If your environment sharpens your senses when you busy yourself with the topic, then style can certainly be learnt. Like almost everything else in life.
How did you find your style?
It has grown with my aesthetic sense. Eventually I got, that clothes are not only functional, but also visual. But my style is evolving. What I wore three years ago, I would burn today.
Important issue: style sins. What are your biggest ones?
Red cowboy boots with flame pattern. I loved her above all else. Why? I ask myself today. Pointe shoes, so the cut on the shit, I feel today as “Still in Style”.
What will you wear at your own funeral?
A tailored suit by Jens Fanslau..

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
