TBH this is some of the best cultural criticism i've read online in ages. I know we're all still collectively mourning the death of Mark Fisher but its heartening to see his relentlessly large political/cultural project taken up by the younger generation.

Also surprised this (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1628566814089944/) facebook page wasn't mentioned, the magic fades guys been posting military/surveillance fetish stuff there for years.

is the grailed userbase just 50% supreme resellers or has supreme hit critical mass

also: woooooow the hype for FLYKNITS HATCH ONLY IN CLEAN SWIFTLY RUNNING WATER is like negative now, even the old multicolor lunars that used to sell out immediately are all over grailed for <$100.

This is definitely a bit sprawling, and definitely reaching at times but I thought it had some good points. This:

Go to any club worth going to and you’re liable to find the same type of people who would once have been leaf-letting about sweatshops, donned in swooshes and expecting you to find them smarter for it.


is something I have specifically noticed, and think is quite interesting (not sure the "find them smarter for it" dig is really necessary tbh). I caught the tail end of adbusters / no logo / anti-globalization / "Starbucks is the worst thing in the world" as a teenager (to date myself more specifically the massive Stop The War protest in 2003 was probably my nascent political event) and that stuff certainly formed my template for what "activism" looked like. I have no idea how representative this is, but my friends in their early 20's now are almost all a) extremely politically engaged b) feminist / queer / anti-borders / hard-left etc, and c) dressed in heavily-branded sportswear with splashes of health-goth. Not sure it's a specific backlash to the failures of "ethical consumerism" as activism as the article claims (or less charitably simply a response to their middle-class organic-waitrose-shopping liberal parents) but it certainly chimes with what I'm seeing.

Pretty sure Mark Fisher wrote about this at some point, and if he didn't specifically then it's pretty easy to slot into his general capitalist-realism, total triumph of consumerism thesis. He also specifically railed against working-class kids wearing sportswear IIRC.


I agree regarding the scope of the article, but as Bataille wrote it's also very encouraging to see young people attempting to approach these issues with a broader framework in mind.

I've made similar observations about my friends in their early 20's too, but I think a point being missed is that the sportswear is just so bloody practical for the club, and particularly for the climate in Melbourne. There's also a pretty strong thrift aesthetic, at least in my circles, with the brand new swoosh covered items usually being sportsbras, tights, and maybe a bum bag.

An activist aesthetic I'd really like to see take off is the Pastel Bloc. Anything that makes direct action a little more accessible is a step in the right direction, and it's just so damn cute.

Those all white flyknit racers that came out recently sold out fast

For 99% of knits though, anyone can get a pair now because everyone who wants them has them

a series of writings closely mimicing erasmus and luther's "discourse on free will," but instead or erasmus and luther its bela and can, and the question is whether tis better to (a) have your fit pic taken in an ugly place (poorly exposed, bad angle, drab colors and fuzzy textures) by your phone on a timer or (b) have a loose friend take your fit pic in a beautiful place

obviously neither is ideal, but you still have to live until you die.

Drake drops a record with notable UK artist features like Skepta, Giggs and Jorja Smith, and Grailed has a curated list called "Roadman Steez." COINCIDENCE?

edit: a playlist, I mean.

@popcorn it seems to me like the nicer or well known the pieces of the fit are, the more ok it is for the picture to be lo-res. It seems like the quality is implied because the clothes are quality
If the clothes are unknown like thrift or something rare, high res cool picks are better in order to better appreciate the textures and details.
personally I'm a sucker for the OG c-t pics that seem to be just taken before going out the door. To me it implies a really utilitarian approach, like the clothes are great but they're a part of a realer lifestyle. That's more interesting than a staged shot. I like pictures taken in windows, maybe I'll do that.

Of course, shots by friends are also great fun, they're really two different things and I like the balance of the two on here


Hope this isn't weird coming from an outsider :???:

I just bought hawaiian shirts at reyn spooner on a nice (≈50%) sale. Don't forget the SPRING17 code to get free shipping in the US. Thanks to Pete at PTO.

I think these will be the second loudest things in my wardrobe now that I'm in my "replace everything with Under Armour and Outlier" phase. Can't wait.

Vapormaxes are pretty much just flyknit shox and $350 for the plastic dunks is absurd
