i'm more sick of bb1's usage of the false dichotomy of rationality vs. creativity that was thrown off years ago, just like most vestiges of modernist thought. (9)

Couldn't imagine travelling with anything more than carry-on these days (unless you're going backpacking around the world). If you pack smart you can easily last a couple weeks.

i've enjoyed a lot of bb1's long posts even though i don't always agree with his conclusion
i find it funny to think that new members probably (given the general age group here, the brands he's into, the fact that he never posts fits and so on) picture him as some college kid who just took a critical thinking class and needs to show off his argumentative prowness....
well he himself said in old posts that he's over 40! (and that he dressed terribly until only a couple years ago)
that should make his posts a lot less unbearable shouldn't it? you know it's not like he has no *right* to be condescending towards a lot of things

for the record, olive garden is delicious

In a highly rationalized society there is a tendency for quantity which is delivered quickly and inexpensively to be viewed as the measure of quality.

Thus we see the majority of Americans eating out at restaurants like Olive Garden, Applebees, and Red Lobster. Most of these chains provide the culinary equivalent of frozen food heated in a microwave. Yet the patrons of these places don't see it that way since they have been socialized to believe that highly rationalized systems and quality are nearly synonymous. The clean family friendly establishment that quickly and consistently delivers large quantities of safe tasting food is the quality choice. And odds are good most people's workplace promotes similar values.

Would not people's clothing choices be influenced in a similar manner? Looking at videos on youtube we can easily find young women showing us their mediocre finds from Forever21, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls as if they've hit the jackpot. "Look at this, I got 10 cute tops from TJ Maxx for only $50!" No matter where you live odds are there's a TJ Maxx within minutes of your home, providing you with inexpensive clothing in a predictable manner similar to how the Olive Garden delivers your food.

Additionally elitism is the equivalent of quality and American society shuns elitism. "What's that? Olive Garden is not good enough for you? Well you must be a snob!"

Lastly I would argue that good fashion design (like anything creative) is an inherently irrational process, and in a highly rationalized society such processes are unlikely to be highly valued.

I don't know what BB1 thinks 'rational' means but I wouldn't call his description 'rational'.

I'll be back traveling again in a few weeks, and I'm pretty sure I'll have a leather duffle, a blue cotton blazer, shredded apc's, margiela boots and a pack of hanes with me, and that'll be it. I wish I could find more shit like that, you know? rick dunks don't travel that well.

isnt a leather duffle obnoxious for traveling? Steezy but heavy
