Liam Gallagher hates skinny jeans
Liam Gallagher wants someone to kill him if he wears tight jeans. The Oasis singer - whose fashion label Pretty Green launched yesterday - hates the recent trend for men to wear slim-fitting trousers and has no intention of succumbing to it. He said: “I’m not into the skinny look and pointy shoes. They’re just not on - they’re for girls. I have never worn a pair of pointy shoes in my life and I never will. If you ever see me in a pair, drive over me. That and spray-on jeans”. The 36-year-old singer decided to embark on a career as a designer after becoming bored of the clothes men’s shops stock.
Although he admits Pretty Green - which he works on with tailor Nick Holland - with not be a trailblazing label, he is adamant it will be successful. He told Britain’s GQ magazine: “My role is, ‘Right, let’s do a jacket or a coat like this,’ and Nick goes away with my ideas and brings them to life. It’s a long-term project. People might laugh at it and it might not work out, that’s why I am going to be doing clothes that I like rather than making them for someone else. At the very least I will get a wardrobe out of it. And I think people will dig it. It’s not reinventing the wheel - it will be a classic parka or trench coat. Nothing crazy going on.”
