All that's needed is the matching beard and trenchcoat.  >=/

In one satirical picture, this what's wrong with the "current fedora trend":

Fedoras are, to say the LEAST, "not in", or "in" but with the wrong crowd who kinda match it terribly with other ill-fitting or clashing fashion choices (fedora + trenchcoat + neck beard)....and some personal choices that are just kinda...'icky', it's kind of a raunchy nerd sub-group otherwise.

It's sort of the current version of how "emo fashion" (and people) were just generally given the stink-eye to for both their fashion choices...and, well aspects of their "generalized" personalities (whether true or not).

I'm assuming it's kind of like slut shaming, but done to guys, and more socially acceptable, or something?

Eesh, here we go.

No, it's just not an appealing get up. They want to look good and cool but only succeed in turning people off.

No, I'm just asking. I've had people harass me for wearing it with my blazer, and I'm just now starting to get this information. Don't blow it up into something it's not.

I think the emo thing was a better example because its more mocking a sub-culture for their generalized personas and "uncool" fashion.
Mongoosey said it well.  Their attempts to 'stick out' fashionably (with fancy fedora?) has kinda backfired.

And also, limit talking about specific gender stuffs.  It's also icky.

Can you even buy a fedora in Pokemon? I've not seen one yet.

I think you can buy it in the second city, I haven't been buying clothes since I spend it all on Pokeballs.

Dice, sorry but that image was kind of screaming for it. It wasn't about gender, rather the perception of a certain group being judged for what they wear, which is bullshit. Hell, even emos shouldn't be judged for that. :P

Nuts to the fashion police.  I got kicked out of a store in Pokemon Y for not being stylish enough.  Well poo to those uppity snobs!  My Cresta is adorable (yeah, I play as a female trainer named Cresta.)  

Funny story at work today (kind about fashion.)  I was in a pokemon conversation with a couple of students in a class I assist in (I work at a high school), and this girl almost freaked because she was frustrated that she didn't get Pokemon yet and didn't want to be spoiled.  She then even said she might return a dress she recently bought (dunno if it was a homecoming dress since that's this week) just so she could get Pokemon.  How crazy is that?  Even when she said, "How sad is that?" regarding the dress, everyone in the class said, "do it.  Pokemon's worth it."  Even a dude on the football team encouraged the "ditch the dress and pick up Pokemon" sentiment.  (Bear in mind, this is a cool, artsy, semi-popular, and nice-looking teenage girl who you wouldn't think was a Pokemon trainer upon first glance.)  

So far, most of the students I spoke with either chose Froakie or commented that "everyone's choosing Froakie!"  Although in another class I assist in (a computer tech/ web design class) a young lady picked Chespin.  Not seeing a lot of Fennekin love.

On a lighter note, this is the first time I'm playing a Pokemon game and having no idea what to expect from the dungeons/gyms/etc., so I'm having way more fun with this game than any previous entry. In fact, this goes beyond my Red/Blue experience simply because it's like getting Pokemon for the very first time, and not knowing which Pokemon are the best battlers.

I said the picture was satirical.  I posted it because it summed up the "common nuances" of what you asked.
I've always shrugged on fashion comments.  I do think expressing yourself is important, but all the same wearing something that "fits" is just a "good idea" (for instance, I wouldn't go to a job interview in "slut wear" even if it was at aims to express myself).
Anyways, the joke with "Fedora Fashion" is because it started almost as an attempt for somewhat nerdy fellas to "look cool" but has since backfired on the intended purpose and invited in a lot of room for caricature (again, see how the emo trend panned out). 

I realize that "fashion" and "conformity" is a lengthy issue anyways; but I'm here to explain than debate. 

And if a running gag to the "fedora-wearing stereotype" is their inability to get girlfriends, I'm sure a nice fitting shirt would work better than wearing an outdated hat and trenchcoat (the same way I wouldn't wear overalls in this age to look appealing).

But hey, the early 2000s saw PONCHOS in style, so what the fuck can anyone say about fashion, but I do think the "expressing yourself" comment can only get you so far.

Nuts to the fashion police.  I got kicked out of a store in Pokemon Y for not being stylish enough.  Well poo to those uppity snobs!  My Cresta is adorable (yeah, I play as a female trainer named Cresta.)

Man, the age we live in where adults can talk games with high schoolers.  Yaaay!  I've actually noticed the "you waste your time on video games" comment being spoken less and less.  I tend to spread myself thin between games and fashion and have little disposable income to show because for it. ;___;
