On my recent trips to Spain, Italy, and South America I've been noticing a disturbing trend among young 20-something males. It appears that the mullet is making a comeback, not amongst the older or trucker set, but mostly the "metrosexuals". In Argentina apparently it's called the "Corte Cubano", which is Spanish for "fugly". What gives?

I am not happy with the idea of the 'number 7' making a comeback. How could a 'neck warmer' ever be considered fashionable?

Yabbut this is less white trash and slightly more fashion forward but still an egregious crime against humanity. I've only seen it on Latinos really and it's usually accompanied by a messenger bag and sunglasses you know will be a bygone fad in 20 minutes.

" ... A stroll through one of Seville's abundant parks after school hours will reveal gangs of young people sporting mullets as proof of their good fashion sense. The Spanish mullet, known as the greita, is typically quite distinct from the type traditionally sported by the country singers and World Wrestling Entertainment wrestlers of American culture. Rather than a flowing mane, it is a sharply cut square with errant strands stretching toward the shoulders, always gelled to perfection ... "

"When I apply the phrase "one man's trash is another man's treasure" to my study abroad experience this semester in Seville, Spain, I would change the expression to "the cultural emblems of one country's rejected decade are another country's hottest fad." By this, I mean that those elements that characterize what we Americans look back on as a 10-year lapse of good taste, the 1980s, have been welcomed whole-heartedly into the collective embrace of Spanish pop culture.

Mullets are going to make a comeback, check out Togusa's mullet in "Ghost In The Shell", quality.
