And (correct me if I'm wrong) I'm not sure whether the case of South Korea would be so unique as to be something people haven't read similar stories before (noracist).
I'd be much more interested in seeing the "few stalwarts, a few new ones" with a couple of illustrations for each and a nice write up. Korean designers are not something I've been exposed to.
That's what i'd find interesting anyway. Maybe people who don't have an interest in fashion would think differently.

good points. it's not going to be an essay about generalities but quick introduction of korean americans (dana lee, richard chai) and or south koreans (juun j, woo young mi, peace love understanding, bean pole collaboration). probably not all of them. i think dana lee, juun j, and probably the bean pole collab. i thought i would give a quick backdrop on apparel industry in korea and how rising consumerism gave koreans a lot of exposure to foreign brands whereas traditionally there was very little exposure due to high import taxes. you are right. i should try and get it narrower.

who makes some of their stuff in korea? i know ervell and visvim have some stuff but not sure of others.

I think at the moment I have too many ideas (a few stalwarts a few new ones, south Koreans vs Korean Americans, the strong apparel manufacturing industry, rise of consumerism). I've never done anything like this before. I dislike the way most fashion write ups are written (almost like bullsht art criticism) and hope to write something a little different.
Anybody have tips or ideas or feedback or guidance they could give?


mention all the korean girls who wear crocs with their louis vuitton bags.

the anxiety of checking the tracking info for a package that's supposed to be delivered tomorrow and seeing that the last scanned location is still the origin city halfway across the country

Has anyone ever ordered anything from owow.info? I am extremely skeptical of sites with writing in broken English and no information whatsoever about where they are located.

Edit: it looks like they stole all of their Cabourn photos from End Clothing.

 I got a couple of the new season uniqlo undercover Ts and they're longer and narrower than the standard uniqlo ones, good option if you can get hold of some.

Getting really tired of bloggers using terms like "stunt" and "dope" to describe #menswear brands and pieces. I have met a lot of you, and you are all pretty nice guys, and articulate, so seriously, find a new schtick.

At the same time, it's at least more amusing to read than the Monocle "I'm traveling the world with a broom handle wedged firmly in my bum" tone has been old for a while.

Maybe the two groups should get together and figure something out.
