I feel like my proportions aren't for turtlenecks. It makes me sad, because I want to look good in a turtleneck. Just a ramdom thought.

Anyone have experience with DWR treatments? I want to add some water resistance to my esemplare parka, but I'm not sure what product to use. Another thing is I definitely can't put this in the dryer (wool lining), so the treatment can't be heat activated like revivex etc... Parka outer is a dense cotton twill if that affects which product to use.

Any ideas?

The problem is that it's not even about clothes anymore. It's about "social media", "perception" or "lifestyle" as completely intangible things that do not matter at all. We have grown ups taking selfies and going about a popularity contest like they're still in high school.

Ironic sportswear will die soon enough but it'll be replaced by the next middle class appropriation of working class culture.

I think people are going to start dressing as evening standard salesmen, bus drivers, tube drivers, parking wardens security guards next. Uniformcore

I worked as a labourer for a paving company for a short period of time and builders do actually look kinda cool, they're always rough and ready and quite casual and practical, it's weird but there is something kind of cool/glamourous about builders. If any of the guys I worked with heard me saying that they would definitely find that weird, they used to call me Eugene as a nickname :(

I would never wear any construction worker inspired fashion garments though, that's too ridiculous

went to a shop in town the other day which describes itself as a "vintage clothes store". I walked in, saw a bunch of old looking jackets, noticed a huge rail of plain white t-shirts with #SELFIE printed on them in big black letters, and then promptly walked straight out. That is not a vintage item.

also, the spanish footballer Hector Bellerin (of Arsenal) is seemingly obsessed with taking waywt pics. his latest effort (see spoiler) involves the unusual combination of loake boots with incredibly tight rick owens jeans. his raf top is cool though.

just realized that the #1 reason i should be cropping out my face is not quite privacy concerns
but bc it's impossible to take a fitpic without a dumb look on my face
but i feel like the shape of your hair makes a difference in how a fit reads
what to do



i'm remembering now this art kid i know from college who sewed a printed comic strip to the inside of her jacket, just under the brand tag. i'm kind of interested in this idea of her asserting control over her jacket as definitely hers and not this idea and artifact from [/i]insertbrandhere[/i] she just happened to wear, and i'm also wondering if she did some super subtle lamination or protection on it so it wouldn't tear or wear away.

one of my friends used to joke about sneaking into another friend's closet and just sewing secret pockets into everything in the dead of the night, so that the other friend would wake up and feel this surreal sense of "is this really mine? did this always have pockets? have i just not been noticing these?"

i kind of want to sew weird shit into the inside of my clothing. the same way people have lockets with a portrait of someone or a hair sample (man, people back in the day were super weird), i'd bring around these odd little scraps of paper that friends or acquaintances have written for me. i've done a lot of team/group bonding/farewell exercises where people write a bunch of tiny anonymous compliments to you, and some of the compliments people have written for me seem like a better idea of who i want to be than i can come up with myself. what's the significance of carrying around other people's words, though? and why do i feel like i need to carry things around to show that they're meaningful to me?

in general i keep a lot of stuff around that feels like it should matter to me, and the truth is it did and does, but i'm not convinced that it means enough to hold on to a thousand tiny pieces of clutter. like—things that old and departed friends have given you—why does it feel like a betrayal to not keep them around? is it because without the physical artifact you feel the memories about them are more impermanent? what kind of permanence matters more? does physical permanence maintain mental permanence?

really i think i'm just searching for something to do, because i have a 12-page paper due tomorrow and i just found a box of needles and thread in my room.
