2005 - 'Kinky Boots', a film about British made shoes for drag queens, is released.

2007 - the menswear blogosphere's obsession with fine crafted footwear explodes.

Coincidence?

Do certain brands/looks hew closer to the idea of "objective aesthetics" than others and can this be used as a metric to denigrate or commend a brand/look?

If a brand only releases limited sizing/creates heavily adjustable garments it could be said they are less reliant on "objective aesthetics"?

Why do "objective aesthetics" persist as a metric for judging the value of clothes when they're obviously garbage? ( see Trauma Based Aesthetics, Conceptual Garment Working Group, University of Bantwerp in the Journal of Care Memes Vol XIIC )

With a friend getting late night ramen when I saw a dude with a Supreme pullover and Yeezy 350 boosts. I wanted to get a shot of the dude since I rarely see ~fashion~ in real life. Friend didn't see what the big deal was and I didn't get a good image :(

John Cage vs "objective aesthetics":

“I want to free my music from my memory and taste and from my likes and dislikes so that my music, instead of saying something that I have to say or expresses me, changes me.”

I really like Henrik Vibskov headwear. I would never actually wear it because that would be silly, but I would own it, and look at it sometimes.

Probably because the only thing I looked at on Sainsbos was those trousers (so reasonable... I could find a use for some blue jeans...) and Sainsbos knows it and is now following me around the internet being like "go on m8 go onn"

But I am staying strong and waiting for the belapants

Ah. I assumed that Bobbin had paid for a little placement thru Federated Media or some such service. I had forgotten he'd been picked up by some digital ecommerce guys. Good call, Bels.

while doing some internet digging on reebok pumps (as i habitually look at the "pump oxt" model only to remember the new make-ups are nothing compared to the brighter, more distinctly offroad ones) i find this photo c/o sneakerfreaker:

yeah, the chanel pump furys aren't news to me but it's a reminder that the older sole units (compare on these to current releases) are more my cup of tea

i have a weird way of forcing myself to wear different things everyday (and stuff i forgot i had)

basically, I HAVE to wear whatever shirt is on the furthest right of my closet (most accessible), then i can chose pants,shoes jacket to go with it.

When i am done w said shirt, i send it to the back and the cycle repeats. Its brought out some interesting ideas, some of which i will share at a later date

on a semi but not really related note
for us subscribers of netflix, the fresh dressed documentary is available. if you haven't seen it, it offers a lot of insight into the history and development of streetwear - and the implications surrounding it socially with respect to race and class. features interviews with some of your favs like yeezy, pharrell, pusha t, p diddy, nas, and etc (and yes, there are some really good kanye quotes to be had.

For those of us with this hobby, have we fallen in to some sort of consumerist trap? If we have I don't really mind it myself, as it doesn't negatively affect me and brings me enjoyment. But I see a lot of argument that the idea of fashion is just consumerism and nothing more which I like to believe it's not.
