I agree with what you've said. However, no one actually lives in a virtual bubble. People have to interact with the people around them, if just simply for survival. There are obviously exceptions (I knew a guy in grad school who became socially anxious to the point where he actually did not leave his apartment) but in general, this is the case. You interact with someone, you influence them, And since you are more like the guy all the way across the country than you would have been twenty or thirty years ago, your influence is more like his than it would have been twenty or thirty years ago. Integrate this across the population, and the influence is homogenized spatially and in time.

I recall from my last trip to California, the hotel I was put up in, where the guests were all white or non-US Asian, the senior staff were all Asian-American, the cleaners and bar staff, Hispanic-American, and the porters etc. all African-American. Outside of a few particular enclaves, I don't think much bonding is taking place over a common love of bespoke tailoring or even JCrew (and incidentally, pretty much everything on this site could have featured on Things White People Like)... And language more homogenous? You're in LA, right? The city where Spanish is the majority language much as the white ruling class like to pretend that it isn't...

Anyway, enough of the sociology, and back to the mindless enjoyment of consumer stimulation! smile.gif

I never said that people are bonding. I'm saying the society is becoming more homogenized. Hell, even the heterogeneity is homogenized. Go to Othello, WA. It is a large farming community in Idaho, and as such, there are a lot of Hispanic migrant workers. And their kids. The kids sound and dress pretty close to the way they would in LA. There are "hipsters" at the University of Idaho who would not look out of place in Brooklyn.

Watching the video for "two princes" by Spin Doctors and I can't help but think that wardrobe for this video shot in 1992 would be current Styleforum approved for the most part.

Jay Z and Barneys Join Forces for "A New York Holiday"


Hip hop's elder statesman is bringing, in his words, "the slickness, energy, and innovation of New York City" into the enormous collaboration that will include holiday windows, exclusive merchandise from some of the biggest names in fashion and menswear(Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin, The Elder Statesman, En Noir, Rick Owens, just to tick off a few), baller essentials like Shawn Carter by Hublot watches and a specially designed Comador humidor, a BNY SCC art gallery installation in the Madison Ave. flagship, and even the store's shopping bags.

What's better is you can feel good dropping big bucks on Jay's luxe gifts as 25% of proceeds from the "A New York Holiday" merch goes to to the Shawn Carter Foundation. Look for the Jay takeover to begin November 20th.

kinda in the same vein...

"Odin is marching into chillier days with a capsule collection touting exclusive product from a number of menswear favorites. The store worked closely with AC Canterelli, Alex Mill, Common Projects, Engineered Garments, Mark McNairy, Rag & Bone, and Todd Snyder on developing a unique assortment dubbed the Odin Exclusive Collection.

Pieces from the collection will filter into stores over the coming weeks. First up is the seven piece Rag & Bone delivery, which is now available at all three Odin shops, as well as their online store. Outerwear, shirting, and trousers from the beloved brand are available, and everything was made in the USA."
