She like the APC and the Rag and Bone stuff I get her. She has good taste though it is tough finding stuff she really loves.

As for me, she puts up with my 1890's chimney sweep outfits but I think the LUC stuff really makes her smile.

The boots are just beyond her and they're a little bit beyond me. But I've been guided and helped along to some great purchases that I'm willing to bet I'll still love years from now.

When I first donned my Layer-0 pork pie I remember her reaction was one of surprise, amusement, acceptance and finally appreciation.

"That's a fun hat" were, I believe, her exact words.

I'd love to hear others stories of how their S.O. feels about visible-shank, destroyed horse, prosthetic elbow, fly yarn, bread bag . . . I could go on.

for a good laugh, read the above and disregard the context of our little group. It sounds like a laundry list of dirty euphemisms to be sure. 

 

I've had only the sort of experience that @docdocgs is referring to as far as reaction to my wardrobe. I have totally given up on trying to find a match. The idea of dying alone just puts an even finer point on the importance of planning each outfit. If I'm only doing any of this for my own amusement and that amusement obviously ceases at the point of my expiration then every outfit should be as self-fulfilling as possible.

 

Clothing is an armor against the banal and mediocre existence I trudge though daily. It represents a layer of fantasy, temporal escapism and a sensual interaction with an artisan attention to detail that is lost on most everyone nowadays.

Most excellent, @psydle! I've been casting about for a good, solid existential argument to justify these unjustifiable acquisitions for a while now, and after reading your post, I believe my search is finally over. I used to just mumble something about how even Beckett wrote almost fetishistically about his greatcoat and hat, but that was never good enough, not even close to good enough for her. But this thing of being your own walking theater, actor, playwright, ticket-taker, and audience, all rolled into one until that "final" curtain call, that might be just the thing. It will at least confuse the listener, which usually makes him or her leave you alone, a not undesired outcome in some circumstances.

And sadly, giving up on finding a match is exactly what makes one most vulnerable to finally landing the big fish. May god have mercy on your soul.

If I start carrying "sucking stones" around in the pockets of my artisan clothing then I will surely have crossed over and it is time to bow out. I am already quite particular about pockets and get very upset if my daily items are not in their proper bodily locations. Haruki Murakami has written several characters who perform object sorting exercises as a means of meditative calming for an extreme OCD personality.

Ha! Was it 16 of them? He certainly had an efficient method of communication with his mother, but limited: thumps on the top of the skull would be difficult to generalize.

Don't even get me started on Murakami, one of my all-time favorites. I hope you also some day meet that person who will open his/her ears for you; just don't go to the Dolphin Hotel together. And for pity's sake, stay away from the sheep! And now, back to the Wind-Up Seam Chronicle!

those are so structured. I'm not used to seeing that from Guidi. I bet the red looks even better in real life.

@psydle they look structured indeed! Unlike any other Guidi. And the color is incredible.
