Im okay with Tin Tin wearing bell bottoms but i prefer the plus fours because that's something that makes people remember him more.

I think like this... You would hardly expect a young guy like Tintin to wear plus-fours in 1976, no matter how iconic they were for the Tintin character. Even though his new trousers maybe shouldn't have been jeans, I understand why the change was made.

I didn't really notice any of the changes. I borrowed 'Tintin and the Picaros' from a friend and read it in a rush. But they seem okay! Peace signs ftw. Maybe if Herge had lived long enough, we'd see more of those, and maybe get a glimpse into Tintin's interests. Maybe he's a secret hippie.

I think Hergé knew that Tintin was going to end soon. Also, in order to keep Tintin new, and not so old-fashioned, Hergé styled him in the clothes of the day. I prefer his plus-fours, but it's nice to see Tintin in a more modern light.

I done't think so. It dosne't reilly seem like Tintin to be a "hippie".

I agree with that. Its most likly that he did change Tintin's outfit to the clothes of the day so Tintin woulden't get so "old fashion".

Which is kind of silly really, because having Tintin wear 70's flares only proved how timeless his plus-fours really were.

To be honest, I like the jeans. It makes Tintin looks taller and more mature and even more handsome. lol. I regard it as a sign of Tintin gradually growing up.
