Think further back...
post #33708 of 109053
This past Saturday, I went to the annual ScrappleFest at Reading Terminal Market. For some reason, there were people from Temple (or some other local university) there offering free body composition testing and literature on exercise and fitness. Maybe they were doing a study, or maybe they wanted to make people feel bad about themselves. Naturally, I had to try it out while I was waiting in line to get my scrapple. It was a handheld bioelectric impedence test, which is kind of bullshit because it varies based on time of day, hydration level, and recency of food consumption and exercise. It came back at 4.5%. The girl from Temple (or wherever) stared at me like I was from another planet. The guy who'd just been told he was at 25% bodyfat kind of glared at me. The line started moving, and I got some scrapple, which isn't quite as gross as it sounds (I'd already had it on several previous occasions). Morals of the story: - People in Philly are gross and fat. - I've more or less maintained the same physique since I graduated from college about seven years ago. - Next time I think "maybe I could size down on this if I drop a few pounds," I probably shouldn't. - I could probably cut down on the cardio a little and still be ok. - I would look totally fantastic in bizarre gothninja stuff, particularly if I shaved my head to reveal some modest but visible scarring on my scalp. Unfortunately, I could never take myself seriously doing so. But I digress.

Yup, though for all I know it was used before that. Point still stands: A lot of different rappers came out of the South and just like any other place some are good, some are bad.

You're right about this, I just like the jacket.

- People everywhere in America are fat and gross.

- 4.5% body fat would look fantastic in anything.

Yeah it's pretty good most places in PA I've found. You can only eat so much before you roll over and die, though.

What I'm trying to say is, people will stop perceiving minimalism as pretentious and european and start viewing it as stylish and understated. Currently, minimalist designers are intimidating in terms of price, availability, and in the way it's presented--it's expensive, hard to find outside of speciality retailers, and intimidating. As a result, it doesn't have the perception as being easy to wear as say, workwear, which became popular because it tapped into both a cultural nerve and wasn't difficult to pull off. In contrast, workwear was pretty no-fuss as far as aesthetics go, and a "no-fuss" "non-pretentious" minimalist aesthetic (what i'm calling an "american" minimalism) is what I see taking the place of flannel, denimz, and boots as "trendy." What i'm trying to argue is that there will be a move towards minimal-but-not-boring (i.e. sophisticated) as a dominant style. I think that more mainstream designers/stores will water it down somewhat from where it currently is, but it willl keep the essence of the concept-less is more, emphasis on details, fit, precise tailoring etc. that are the hallmarks of minimalistic designers such as Ervell, Jil and APC, but packaged, marketed, and sold as a "no-fuss" sophistication. Like Ikea, but for clothing. EDIT: SHUT THE FUCK UP MAGICIAN
the future of fashion is going to be dictated by people that buy clothing from barneys ny, bergdorfs, saks on madison, etc at retail or near retail prices....not a bunch of clothing nerds that discuss it ad naseum online. in turn, the low end stores like gap, old navy, banana, etc will follow and so will the american masses.

The problem that I normally run in when doing a minimalist look is one piece doesn't fit quite right and throws off that simple sense of perfection. When we (as in people on this forum mainly) talk about a minimal visual look it is 85% fit, 10% patterns, 5% colors (made up % lol). Something simple like shoes, bags, watches, bangles, etc can throw it all off as well. A woman can wear a little black dress and a white cropped coat but if the shape of that Mulberry is too clunky it is all over. lol about the American minimalism though. I totally thought denim and white tees too.
jil is more about producing the most incredibly engineered garments (ala german style) and minimalism than it is about fit imo. i think good fit is just a product of those two. there are many other brands with just as good a fit.

If Tumblr is to be trusted, most young black men living in NYC dress like that now.
