^I agree with a lot of that actually melon (though I have a soft spot for the Himalaya bomber). A lot of the detailing from his previous seasons seems a little tacky. I like a fair amount of FW09, but I think his stuff has been getting a lot more wearable as time has gone on, without sacrificing his use of color and cut that makes him distinctive.

Also, somebody sell me a leather jacket!

I've been thinking about this for a little bit now. As much as possible I try to support business in my own community. I stay away from the supermarkets as much as possible and buy things at local family owned businesses.

My car was purchased in town, made in Canada etc.

I feel compelled and almost obligated to do this, however!

I buy clothes from all around the world, I hardly buy anything locally. Within my '100 mile radius' I have Roden Gray, Haven, 4 Horsemen, Neighbour, Inventory, Blueowl etc. While I do buy from these shops regularly, I don't think the majority of my clothes come from them.

I could go even further and say I should only buy clothes that are made in said 100 mile radius. I could get Wings + Horns, Reigning Champ, Viberg, National Anthem, Homespun, Arc'teryx, and probably some other brands I don't know of at the moment.

Enough choice to probably outfit 75% of my wardrobe I'd say. I wonder why I don't do this.

It's true, even if you look at a lot of cloak stuff...most of it is ridiculously tacky. At the same time though, a lot of new Geller doesn't really impress me all that much either, despite being much more wearable. Kind of in the same camp as Wings + Horns for me

This CNN article about war and fashion is a gag right? Cant be real.

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2013/02/world/war-and-fashion/index.html?hpt=hp_c1

"War is ugly. Fashion is beautiful. War projects the worst of humanity. Fashion displays sartorial splendor in its highest. War is fraught with danger, even for journalists and especially for photographers who must get up close to their subjects to frame an image. Fashion is far less perilous, though photographers must also get intimate with their subjects on and around the runways. There are photographers who shoot both: battlefields and runways, guns and glamour. At first, photographing war and fashion appear as incongruous acts that are difficult to reconcile.

Until, perhaps, you take a deeper look."

I really like geller for basics.  His shirts & tshirts fit me well and the ones I have I wear a lot; I don't own any pants but the ones I tried had an awesome cut (though I sent them back since they were this stupid cobalt blue color that was unwearable).

 

 

The jackets always look overdesigned to me.

This could be blogger material, kinda hard to cop libyan rebel steeze though. Maybe it would make a good lifestyle post.



They must have enough photographs to make the difficult part remembering or finding similar ones.

It's not really about war and fashion. It's about photography and its social contexts.

I don't see a problem, but then I love photo art, especially press photos.

I try to do the same thing, I try to focus on ethically produced food as well (free range, grass fed, organic etc.)

Clothing wise I try to only buy clothing made in western/northern Europe, to support the local trades and keeping jobs local.
