I liked the polyester 70's shirts of the SD era best.

I've only seen him wear this in a photo that was in the booklet for Rotten Apples.

That shirt immediately sprang to mind.

Are his SD shirts actually the best or are we just influenced to think that by how good the music was then?

If he was wearing scarves and capes and 3 jackets during MCIS would we think that was cool?

The only thing he's ever worn that made me go "I need that" was the Ganesh shirt he wore in the "Honestly" video

And I'm not going to go back and check but I feel like that might actually have been a sweater so it's likely ineligible and I'm sorry

But I really wanted whatever that garment was

I've seen two pictures with that tee shirt, one was in colour and the other in black and white. Two band shots from i think different times (i have to check).

SD era probably suited him the best. During zwan he kind of reverted back to his SD look, and I liked quite a few of the shirts he wore during his solo era (like the penny-farthing one). Now he dresses like a hybrid between a hobo and grandmother.

yes i remember late 90's, adore-era, the gap started selling leather pants (i guess to see if it would catch on, i dunno?)... my gf at the time strongly persuaded me to purchase a pair (because billy wore them and he was sleek and sexy and mysterious and that's what she wanted) and of course i acquiesced. i'm walking around in fucking illinois wearing leather pants like wtf am i doing, certainly not looking as cool as bolls does, that's for sure.

anyway i certainly had a laugh years later to read in the Confessions that bill's leather pants were bought at the urging of his european gf or something to that effect. felt a kinship with him then.

This picture always blew my mind because it was taken at a shitty antique store less than a block from my house. That and the fact someone took the time to edit that on his shirt. It originally said Oklahoma on the front. Thinking about it now, I don't know which is worse.

It's a funny thing. BC could get away with it being a rock star and the Moose sweater has become iconic...I do think it's cool. It was probably just an old sweater he had in his drawer. If I was wearing that, i'd just be a jerk in a bad sweater to most people...:D

Anthony, you have frequently dismissed sleeves or even shirts altogether while performing. Is this merely for overheating issues, or sex appeal, or you just don't like the way you look in a shirt, or a combination of all three?

he has this particular disorder where he's obsessed with his own naked torso and cannot function unless people are forced to see it. It's called DPD or Douche personality disorder.

I was called "stupid" here because I suggested that Billy might possibly have an eating disorder of some kind - even he talked about having food binges at some point. He was way too thin at some point in the last decade as you pointed out, and i found that worrying. There was nothing stupid in that, sorry.

He still looks quite unhealthy to me, just on the opposite end of the spectrum, which is often worse for men of his age.

The fat he is now doesn't look great but it's pretty much ideal.

Araneae

For a man, that's a dangerous amount of abdominal fat that he's gaining. He was too thin before but at least he was doing some exercise. I suspect his Adore era weight was more due to drugs than anything else.
