True. The kylie line was almost exclusively twelve year old girls and their moms. Everyone was wearing dusty pink.

For instance, there was this query from a user with the name of mafoofan: “Manton, I assume if they set off a 10kt bomb in the middle of Manhattan, the UWS is royally f*cked, right?

Anton’s reply was concise.

"No, the shockwave will not reach that far. Structural damage is likely to be light. Fires may rage out of control in any and all directions, however. And fallout will depend on the weather. Thin[g]s will likely be bad, but not so bad as people assume."

Mafoofan’s response was, “Zabar’s survives!”

At the bottom of Field Notes' latest:

So when's the Supreme collab?

what are your opinions on the importance of a person's face/complexion with regard to their style? as in, should a person consider their their face when dressing themselves?

sometimes i feel i have too much of a soft/baby face to pull off the somewhat rugged style i lean toward

Comfort Alert: Wide Trousers Are On the Loose Again - WSJ

Image

SIX YEARS AGO, Wade Jeffree was converted. At the time, the 29-year-old art director had been squeezing into Iggy Pop-skinny jeans, but he (and his beleaguered calves) had had enough. He tried on his first pair of wide-legged trousers, a black wool pair by Comme des Garçons, and enjoyed the novelty of blood flowing freely through his limbs. “A lot of people think of M.C. Hammer when they think ‘wide-legged trouser,’ ” said Mr. Jeffree. He’d had similar trepidations, but now his pants wardrobe consists solely of unconstricting, roomy cuts.

Spoiler:
This sounds heretical, we know. Slim trousers—which went mainstream about a decade ago—were supposed to deliver men from all kinds of evil: Dad jeans, raver gear, the quad-pleated khakis at your local Kmart. But a silhouette revolt is under way, with proponents of bagginess making the case that wide trousers needn’t read as schlubby.

Skinny trousers are “just not flattering” said Patrick Grant, the designer behind London label E. Tautz. “A lot of people are just not built for skinny trousers, particularly those of us who have a few years under our belt.”

Mr. Grant first introduced voluminous trousers in E. Tautz’s fall 2014 collection. His most popular model, the “Field Trouser,” riffs on 1950s military fatigues from his personal archive. Measuring more than 2 inches wider at the hem than the brand’s standard chino, it outsells all other E. Tautz items world-wide; the label moved five times more of the cut in 2016 than in 2015. Our trousers, they are a-changin’.

The comfort factor is helping drive the shift from skinny to wide, said Mr. Grant. “There’s a joy to wearing clothes that you can move in,” said Mr. Grant. Especially if they’re clothes you can move in without looking like you’re trudging to the gym.

Of course, men have gone stylishly wide before. Bergdorf Goodman’s men’s fashion director Bruce Pask recalls a time when looser trousers filled high-end racks. On a trip to Antwerp, Belgium, in the early ’90s, Mr. Pask, then an editor at GQ, found the entire town seemingly in the grip of wide-leg mania thanks to influential, local designers such as Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester. “I remember being obsessed with how cool everybody looked in this silhouette,” said Mr. Pask.

Fashion is a cyclical beast, but Mr. Pask, rather than rolling his eyes at the predictability of the wide-trousers comeback, prefers to focus on the need to get it right this time and avoid the sloppy style sins of the later ’90s (See: Backstreet Boys, lost in the expanses of their pants, circa 1996). “It’s not just, ‘Oh, it’s the weekend, I’m going to put this on,” he said. We automatically assume that narrow equals natty, so looser pants require more consideration in the 2017 context.

It starts with the fabric. The term “drape” comes up like a daily affirmation among designers who are pumping up the volume. London-based Margaret Howell, for instance, likes the fall of unstiff materials like lightweight wool or flannel or linen “that have movement in them.” That said, she also favors the different effect she gets from sharp cotton twills with a bit of structure. “Cotton can still be wide-legged, but it has a crunchiness to it,” she said.

What to wear on top requires a little thought, too. While slim pants and slim shirts make easy bedfellows, wearing wide over wide doesn’t cut it. “If it’s too much volume—on top and bottom—you can look like a little kid,” said Chris Green, the divisional merchandise manager for the boutiques Need Supply Co. in Richmond, Va., and Totokaelo in Manhattan, which stock wide-legged offerings from Marni and Obey, and Our Legacy and Maison Margiela, respectively. Instead, Mr. Green recommends boxy but trim tops such as Harrington or denim jackets or a crew neck sweater that sits neatly at the waist. You want to telegraph that you’re deliberately playing with the loose vs. fitted proportions of your outfit.

Pleats, for instance, say, “No, it’s not accidental that my pants aren’t tight.” Though, as Frank Muytjens, the head of men’s design at J. Crew notes, pleats are a matter of personal preference. In one of the clearest signs that roomier trousers have trickled down into mainstream fashion, J. Crew offers several looser cuts, including single- and double-pleat designs. “You don’t want to wear a slimmer pant day in, day out,” said Mr. Muytjens. “It’s a nice thing for guys to have another option.”

Mr. Muytjens can argue both sides of a key loose-pant debate: to roll or not to roll. When we spoke, Mr. Muytjens wore a pair of carpenter pants rolled to mid-ankle to better show off his suede Alden boots (a common move among the more fashion forward), but he’s been known to let his hems hang as well. “If you don’t roll them up, and the hem puddles around your shoe, I think that’s a fresh silhouette as well,” he said. At 6-feet-2-inches Mr. Muytjens can easily pull that off. Those of us who are more vertically challenged should consider giving wider pants a roll or two to avoid a heavy look.

Some men, however, bypass the debate. Photographer Luca Venter, 22, prefers to have his wide Acne pants hemmed at the tailor for a precise finish just above his ankles. This way, said Mr. Venter, “the look feels more intentional.”

Lastly: footwear. Wide pants call for a chunkier shoe, which, said Mr. Pask, “balances that visual weight.” Seek out dress shoes with lug soles, or sneakers with a stacked look (think Lanvin’s chunky leather lace-ups, not canvas plimsolls).

Don’t be intimidated by the heft if you’re not accustomed to it. A silhouette change always requires time for the eye to adjust. And, ultimately, wide trousers are about lightening up. “Imagine you’ve been holding your breath for years,” said E. Tautz’s Mr. Grant, “and all of sudden you let go.”


the best part of this article is the inclusion of court jester 'knight christoph' from a hans wertinger painting to show that "Slim legwear was a thing long before hipsters".

i don't wear athletic stuff anymore but i found the NBA x Elderstatesman collab at barneys this weekend which is hydrating as fuck

Image

the sweat-knit is def wearable to the office, and i can def see myself stylin it with various shit

http://www.barneys.com/search?q=celtics

i'm surprised the streetwear mofos haven't hyped the shit out of it already lol

@reamseams def considered paying retail to lock in a size S, already had 2/3th of the cash upfront the prior day. ( of course i can def get more value w the money in other shit) but we'll see if it can make the markdowns, which i think the beanie and scarf will. if i can do some spring cleaning and spring the cash soon for full retail, i may pull the trigger

wrt hypebeasts, they can stick to flipping supreme and make their weasy few hundo. i'm playing the long-term swag game here. i already told a bos buddy that the sweat prob fetch $20k in 10 years time. and suffice to say the least, i'd rather cop this $$$$ sweeat than a thom browne one - as discussed the the sales associate, the celtics version is one of, if not, the more versatile colors out of the nba knits out there imo.

Does anybody know what this type of waistband is called?

Edit: I just realized this isn't the best example. I'm not talking about the buttoning on the side, but rather the "hidden" waistband often featured on workwear and fatigues.

I have a lot to say about Saint Laurent AW17 (black velvet cocktail dresses>everything; men's is uninspired/still on-brand; Women's waxed parka is dope; daytime wear brown leathers are super "mom" ish), but its such a big collection and I have been so lazy about putting specific photos together and forming complete-sentence critiques.

Then again, that actually sums up my feelings about SLP/SL/YSL since I first started paying attention to classic fashion houses.

DAE not browse threads about fashion or follow fashion media/trends anymore? don't think i've followed anything other than reading the occasional BoF piece on technicalities of a brand's business operations and manufacturing processes. sometimes i feel like following the latest shit and whatnot self-appointed fashion opinion-makers will obfuscate my discovery of pieces to work with my style.

i take this self blinded approach when browsing ebay (which accounts for like probably 80% of my cops), and it forces me to scrutinize the minutia of details and whatnot to determine if I can incorporate such piece with my curated wardrobe. that itself requires a lot of imaginative prowess imo where i feel being bombarded with the congestion of noise in fashion only serves to detract me from scouring ebay for grails.

i also don't like how 99% of shit is styled on the runway, lookbooks or through fit-pics... and fwiw i don't mess with instagram. i dunno for me, i just blindly stare a piece (or a photo that was non-professionally taken) and think about it for an extended amount of time.

sometimes window shopping in person is mentally taxing too, because i do take the time to decontextualize the piece in its presented fashion, and analyze the shit out of it.

has anyone gotten to the point where they've cultivated an intuition for picking out stuff? or do y'all just like to nerd-out with fashion media and am able to shift through the noise while curating your wardrobe?

I never started. People who go to fashion shows and write about them, by and large, don't give me information that will help me figure out if a particular article of clothing would look good on me in my usual environments.

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.

Can't actually find any quotes on it now but I think it was lack of ambition / immiseration of working-class culture / fashion is great so why should only rich people get to appreciate it? I suspect he would also argue something along the lines of working-class people being the drivers of culture in general (which then gets appropriated by all the bourgeoisie pricks), so if they aren't pushing things forward then everything will become stagnant. That seemed to be roughly his take on music anyway, I'm not sure about fashion.

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.
