Default What does Punk Fashion mean to you?

Hi everyone,
I've just joined this forum to ask a question about a university project about punk fashion and how different people interpret that. If you have the time, I'd love to hear what to you defines the look of punk (if anything!), maybe a particular era or style or just the attitude that one wears their clothes with. Any input is much appreciated, I just want to get as many thoughts as possible on the subject. Thanks in advance!

punks can look all kinds of ways, i think, but what i associate w the fashion specifically is resourcefulness and accessibility! a lot of common elements are diy and thrifted! patches made out of paint and old t-shirts! and everything is customized to the person by the person! : ) that doesn't mean you can't buy from big brands to be punk though afaik!

As Ghoulway say customization is a rally important thing in clothing in the punk scene. However, the least punk thing you can do with your clothes is to write "punk" on it. If you do that you're just a show off.

Funk Passion > Punk Fashion
A smell of petroleum prevails throughout.

Punk to me is ironic. It tries to lay claim to ideals that they are (by and large) not particularly good at pursuing or upholding. In order to look punk, I guess you look at how other punks look and then you try to conform to that.
