Styleforum Top Pickspost #75452 of 1090543/11/13 at 1:12pmI think travel is so popular nowadays because its accessible and easy. 15 years ago you had to go to a travel agent to put together any itinerary not involving flying within the US (hyperbole, but you get it, I'm sure); today, you can very easily put together all of the complicated connections and other items very easily, thus making potentially complicated trip planning quite uncomplicated. With the addition of frequent flier miles, deals, sites like Airbnb and couch surfing, there has never been an easier time to travel around the world without necessarily breaking the bank.
So, get out there you miserable fuckers.post #75453 of 1090543/11/13 at 1:18pmSince free time is a luxury many wealthy people cannot afford, travel is also a way to one-up material hoarders.

Or does it just sit in the back of the closet? I like them but don't know how much use I would get out of one, even though I wear suits occasionally. I would probably wear a navy or grey suit most of the time instead. But I still want one for some reason.post #75458 of 1090543/11/13 at 2:29pmQuote:Originally Posted by DLester

I have an Helmut Lang black moleskine suit that I like to wear when it is cold (i.e Autumn & Winter) and a Dolce & Gabbana mid weight wool that I wear to funerals or nighttime occasions (not as regularly as the HL).post #75459 of 1090543/11/13 at 2:40pmpost #75460 of 1090543/11/13 at 2:41pmpost #75461 of 1090543/11/13 at 3:22pmpost #75462 of 1090543/11/13 at 3:51pm
the popularity of travel reminds me to what has happened with the whole foodie (ugh) phenomenon: much more accessible cost-wise than even 20 years ago, spread by social-media and the inescapable trend of people "curating" their online persona, and presenting a near-infinite list of possibilities. Or maybe I just associate the two so much because I got tired of reading countless OKC profiles where women would describe how they loved food and traveling.
For me traveling has always been more interesting when able to live somewhere for a little while, rather than just flying in, exploring things on the surface and not really getting to know a place in depth. But of course it's not possible to live everywhere, and it gets tougher to not have roots after a certain age, so traditional traveling will always have a place.
At heart both activities are very positive, it just gets annoying fast when some people mostly reduce them to a narrow expression of their ego-driven tendencies. It evokes the horrible notion of personal branding that's been gaining traction, and that does not, in fact, take me to a happy placepost #75463 of 1090543/11/13 at 4:47pmBack before flying people wouldn't "travel," they would go "on tour." Which meant spending months in whatever country(ies) they were visiting. That's where the word tourist comes from. Wish it were still like that, minus their methods of travel that is (who wants to cross the ocean in a boat?)post #75464 of 1090543/11/13 at 4:47pmpost #75465 of 1090543/11/13 at 4:58pmOK, so I threw on my NDG puffer vest just now and had a thought...Would it be at all possible to have someone attach unzippable (removable) leather sleeves onto this to form a sort of UCism type hybrid? Who would I even go to for a project like that, a leather maker or a tailor or what?
All the edgy details and black hardware etc. would look great with leather sleeves, methinks
