Allow me to disagree with that.
Workwear in its utilitarian function has never been a trend. What is one is this obsession we see for it today in the dozens of bloggers who now only swear by it, convinced they are above this very trend they are only reflecting (while, interestingly, they were still collecting sneakers a year or two ago). That lifestyle theory/excuse is just bullshit to me to justify a particular taste. Don't get me wrong, I love most of most of those workwear/americana/heritage brands produce, it's the constant justification I see about it that I find most annoying.
Let's not try to pretend that we're better than that, except for a few members here, we're just as sheepish. I'll be curious to see what you, me and most of us on this forum wear in 2 or 3 years. I have a feeling chambray ties won't be part of our wardrobes anymore though.
Sorry if that sounds excessive, I just had to say it.
