In honour of Richey is dead you crazy fans Day, I've decided to do a post on how god awful the style of the Manic Street Preachers was/is.
Don't get me wrong, I'll be the first to admit I loved them (and still do) to death when I was a mopey 14 year old, however one thing I could never get past is how badly they dressed. I understand it was the early 90s but no one should ever wear white jeans, leopard print and screen printed silk shirts.
Click below for some more cringeworthy photos.
I'm pretty sure when the Clash spray painted shirts they didn't put wussy things like "Dead Flower" on them.
All they need are diamond studs in their ears and they could be the 90s poster children for Ed Hardy.
Gay sailor jokes.
Just for shits and giggles have a 4 real photo of Richey. No Manics post is complete without one.
The 90s are coming back with a boom this year so watch out and please for the love of god don't take any style tips from these guys. If any of you happen to run into Nicky Wire on the street, kidnap him and direct him to the nearest Topman.
