@FrankCowperwood

I think you hit the nail on the head regarding fast fashion, in a lot of ways.

I've heard that Zara pieces go from the "design" stage (used loosely) to the floor of the stores in 7-10 days. Somehow, that doesn't seem like they're trying to make an actual impact in the fashion realm...

In that case, I have a little something in the works I think you'll definitely enjoy.

 

To be continued...

Nor is a fuller cut trouser. You look at all those inspiration photos posted earlier or at Gentleman's Gazette or any decent vintage workwear blog and you see trousers you just can't find much of these days.
 

 

I'm partly fulminating just to amuse myself, as the higher rises are undoubtedly coming, and the young folks will be leading the charge.  

 

I predicted this years ago—doesn't take a genius really, basic fashion pendulum—and you can definitely see it happening now.  But I am surprised how long it's taking and how resistant some still are (see above).

On the fast fashion thing, reading popular press stories about it the theme seems to be "retailers who keep up with trend." But it strikes me as a way to keep inventory ticking over through constant novelty with a dash of FOMO in there as well. Which is to say, I'm not sure if fast fashion's real raison is to be a conduit for the latest trends as much as it is a manufacturing and supply chain concept grounded in the importance of inventory turns. Of course, if stuff is really cycling through so fast, how do they keep coming up with variations of stuff to make? I'm sure this is what gets covered in business school, right? smile.gif

@mc2k Narrower brims seem to be preferred around here (when people wear a proper hat vs. a cap). I think most of the time the hats are worn for fashion rather than function and the smaller brim wins there (is this the high rise/low rise of hats... ha ha). I will admit its sometimes hard to know what to do with a hat with a large brim once you take it off.

Of course, if you find someone wearing a straw or felt hat for more practical reasons, I think you'll be more likely to find a wider brim.

I'm considering picking up one of these for the warmer months:
Warning: Hat! (Click to show)

It's really inexpensive and I could beat it up a bit and see how it turns out.

That looks like a hat blank. Folks usually soak those and then crease the crown/shape the brim. Add a band and you are in business. I suppose you could wear it as-is but I can't think that I've ever seen it done.

That's really incredible.

I have not been into a fast fashion retailer recently, but this must largely be a prefab approach to design; rearranging existing elements in different combinations. IDK. Uniqlo counts as fast fashion, right? There's one Chicago now. I'll have to go have a look.

That sounds right. They advertise it as "open crown" and that you will crease it to suit. My other thought is to get a Gus creased hat with a decent sized brim and go old-timey cowboy/gaucho. Probably need a good hat band either way.

A different kind of classic casual.

If you pay attention to ladies out gardening you'll see a lot of hats exactly like that.

@Gerry Nelson Only on SF do we get someone working from home dressed as well as you are. I work from home most days and my attire is some combination of sweatpants/basketball shorts and undershirt/no shirt :D

post #20786 of 22490

Black shoes are clearly too formal for someone working at home.

(looks around shiftily) Uh, no... I don't have short legs at all... (swallows) 24 inches around? Who told you that? OK, no more questions!

Get you a cattleman crown and a chin strap on that thing, and you can fit right in at Dana Point or San O.  Don't forget your 10'2" longboard.  

 

A bushy bushy bon hairrrdo

 

Though I am just now making big plans for my huaraches, so I'm in no position to speak

 

EDIT: I just realized I'm wearing an aloha shirt
