(sorry that it has taken a while for me to respond)

i think you raise a good question: can we be specific about where the issue resides, in this specific case of a white wearing a white-designed pair of cargo pants with the image of an asian woman? at least in the context of the white west (whose symbolic / social coherence, i'd say, is guaranteed through the creation and degredation of the racial other), the issue resides in the fact that a white designer from an imperial country is participating violent act of othering/dehumanization/objectification. and this othering has a very long history. i'd look at the anne cheng article i posted for specifics. highly recommend it because it gives a lot of really good language for thinking about issues of appropriation beyond the limited mainstream discourse. overall i think you capture something really accurate about the tension or feeling of unease when whites approach east asian culture. like, even when i see whites eating at dim sum i just feel uneasy and i always have to be on guard for when some weirdo asks me where i'm from or if i meditate (all DEEPLY inappropriate and fucked questions to ask).

not my style but seems less sleazy coming from wm and sasquatch (when considering independent of the audience). but then u see white men n women wearing it (and sukajan jackets and whatever else) and it just cheapens everything bc the context is almost stripped away

ultimately tho cross cultural bleed is going to be nigh impossible to avoid and im totally fine w people respectfully utilizing bits of our cultures. i’m mostly irked at people from the dominant global culture (read: anglo) who are hypocrites in adopting our aesthetics n culture while simultaneously making derogatory claims ie in Jarvis format:
white people: asians are robots and have no culture and creativity!
also white people: wow xiaolongbao is so good! wow i love japanese streetwear! wow i stan bTS

as a side note and a hot take many (east) asian american authors and writers rub me the wrong way bc their stuff all reads the same: “ppl laughed at my smelly food at lunch and made fun of my eyes. but nOT ANY MORE” or generic yellow fever op-eds

shorts are carhartt x slam jam, natural canvas carpenter shorts painted white - still feel too close to white denim for comfort though

hey guys. quick life updates, so much has changed. i missed this forum! i moved from ca to nyc last year for school, adjusting to school and ‘adult life’ was tough but also a lot of fun, now i’m taking a year off to focus on my art and other life goals.

heres what ive been wearing this summer. the shorts are broken right now cuz i wore them too much but i’m getting them fixed

this is me and my boyfriend wearing our friend’s clothing brand. he is also wearing olderbrother jeans and that is a 69 sticker on my phone

we’re leaving in a month to go live in the netherlands and say hi to our friends there and either start process for residence permit or move around europe as we please/as dictated by our tourist visas lol

then maybe i come back and continue school next year in the right mindset to fully take advantage of it, or maybe i can sustain that lifestyle and keep doing what i love (unlikely but would be amazing!!!)
