post #74326 of 99761
So I finally went through the last of my stuff from 2011-2012 and listed a bunch of it. Feels good to pare it down, and I'm happy with what I have left. What's the psychology behind being too lazy to make sales threads? I feel like this would've been easier if it was an ongoing thing instead of waiting a stupid amount of time to list it all at once.

Anyways, I took a look into my closet afterwards and I have 9 blue shirts, 3 purple shirts, 1 tan/natural, and 1 white shirt. Is there something wrong with me? I mean, they're all different blues and different fabrics...really interesting fabrics, too. About half are patterns/prints, but it's all blue. Is this dumb? I'm trying to think of other colors that I would want and I can't come up with any. This seems stupid.

This feels like a toasty post.

What's with the sudden influx of comically shitty posters/lurkers suddenly making threads?

I think it's natural to gravitate towards colours that you like. Many shades of blue are also such easy colours to wear and pair with other colours. Before I purged my wardrobe about 1/3 of my button-up shirts were blue. Do you try on other colours when you shop or do you usually pick up items that are mostly in the same colour range? If you do the latter, maybe consider trying out some different colours on you next time and see what you think.

Blue pairs with all skin tones and most outfits so it makes sense

I'm looking at some tees with cool all-over prints (i.e. an image, not a pattern) on them by this relatively unknown brand, but they have the same image printed on the back. Why wouldn't they make the back like a background print or something? It just seems like they copped out and didn't bother to finish the design of the shirt.

Mikey should've been like "are those KVA?" And then she would say "What's KVA?" And then Mikey would realize that he speaks in acronyms because he spends too much time on the Internet.

From Simon Reynolds's Retromania:
Quote:
Like antique collecting, vintage fashion is a largely middle-class game, a taste that has to be cultivated. The further down the class ladder you go, the more value is set on things being brand new. Look at the glimpses into rappers’ homes... where spotless furnishings like white leather sofas and chrome lamps (decor that looks like it’s been transplanted straight out of Scarface) jostle with the latest hi-tech home-entertainment systems. Some rappers boast that they only wear sneakers and dazzling white T-shirts once. You can see a similar preference for the crisp and box-fresh, the same slant towards man-made fabrics and glossy, garish colours, in the clothing styles and interior decor favoured by ethnic minorities on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as the UK’s white working class, who would not be seen dead in anything that even looked old, let alone actually was second-hand.

This is a really readable and pithy book that tries to step back and assess pop culture's fascination with the immediate past. It's mostly about music but dips into fashion as well, partly because the evolution of the two as consumer expressions is strikingly parallel. Book is long-ish, occasionally repetitive and aimless, but not in a bad way. Recommended!
