someone in rep said "knit" but IMO thats a delusion.
imagine the practice of beanies: a) its cold or b) its part of a look

you cant make this shit up. as dadcore failed to be the end of nick wooster-esque icons and youtube morning routine diy crop top fashionistas, the beanies of pants will not be so kind.

Thanks for clarifying. I guess you're right, it is getting colder nowadays (assuming you're in northern hemisphere). Stay warm! Being underdressed in cold weather can weaken your immune system and get you sick.

Do you see people moving to thicker jackets and more layering too, a la 2012 Wooster? I think it's highly likely. Scarves, too. I think TEF (@oucho's brand) makes scarves, but they look very lux and not all that warm (still like them oucho!).

Not as a matter of warmth. people who are not acquainted like us wear beanies if its cold. more "hip" kids wear them despite the weather. then there are the people wearing them to hide their greasy hair.

the future is that of the greasy hair category. greasy hair will never be en vouge, but the metaphorical fusion between not caring and caring more than anyone else is hot. some do not wash their hair out of poor hygiene. others do it #nopoo. really, the only difference is 'intention' ie. something my mentors have taught me is the rudimentary vein of lesser beings. consequence is all that is important, so no matter how "hip" you are, greasy hair is greasy hair is greasy hair. personal fashion development is a boomerang, wherein the more you know, the more likely you are to return to normality. for example, the type to purposely looking like shit in designer garments.. spending time and money to look worse then when you originally started caring about fashion on /r/malefashionadvice

with that said, nick wooster can't.

Without wanting to sound indelicate I agree that this doesn't make sense. I've parsed this several times (along with the other posts) and I can't locate exactly what you mean. I would really like to - I'm not taking a dig.

I'm going to pull out the bit that I do (think) I understand - intent. A person with greasy hair because they have poor hygiene vs. someone who follows nopoo. These are actually quite different things - not washing your hair is not nopoo, nopoo is hygenic and often includes washing hair just without shampoo and products that have SLS, silicone etc. A lot of nopooers do something called cowash (washing with conditioners) or at the very, very least wash their hair with water and some kind of agitation technique. The results of someone not washing and nopooing are quite different.

But lets set that aside and imagine they were the same entirely. Intent is absolutely important - an artist and a child could both slash a canvas but the art is in the intent and the gesture. One is meaningless and the other is laden with it. Whether or not you care or believe its objectively 'good' you accept that it was done.

Your second point about fashion being a boomerang is something I think I agree with in part. I often see people get into fashion and as they learn more they change, only to return to a point that was closer to their original identity than their peak of exploration. I don't think this is a uniquely 'internet fashion' thing, I think its part of identity building when you discover any new interest - a sharp learning curve and a slow return to yourself as you keep what works for you and discard the things that don't.

Re: the pants thing I am still in the dark. Pants (trousers) are the norm so we only stop wearing them when something else meets your criteria.

If the intent is Dadaist and the discussion and words are liberated from the rules of meaning I instead need to sit a few feet from my screen, make a sound of agreement then turn to Katy and ask her how it makes her feel. I've been going about this all wrong.

same. stopped using product and shampoos and the like ages ago.

after a while once my hair is longer it starts to look kinda shit so I'll wash it with SLS free shampoo and conditioner, then it'll look dry and floppy until I shower the next day and then it's back to normal.

Unless there is a new dry shampoo I've not seen dry shampoo has been around for years. It's essentially pressurised talcum powder and it doesn't clean your hair - it just makes it look a bit fresher by absorbing grease and giving it some bounce. Lots of girls in Jack Wills sporting a kind of 'British Posh Preppy' empty cans of it into their hair here because it gives it a sort of volume.

There is absolutely a cosmetics trend against SLS etc. - although its largely marketing junk and the products are just formulated with other less well known forms of the compounds/ingredients.

a great deal of my job is looking at trendforecasting and millennials (just threw up a bit typing that) quite literally can't get enough of pink and don't show signs of stopping. pastels as a whole are very popular, but the company i work for defaults to making pieces in black, white, and pink first with grey now sitting in the corner sobbing quietly
