I shared my thoughts based upon my personal style and my circle of friends and associates. But I tend to hang with a more art/fashion/home decor crowd than tech startup guys.
Aren't two problems, one the socialpsychological of antipathy and power, the other an aesthetical, being mixed here too early to clear up the problem?
2. relationship between the individual and the group:
"that guy" who sticks out in a way that looks odd (I've never visited a lodge of Odd Fellows; German "gerade" means straight [even=eben] is used as everyday word for non-odd numbers)
art/fashion/decor versus tech startup are groups in Sunny Land of the Free?
1. the (fundamental) aesthetic problem:
patchwork quilt (expressive sockets, pocket squares, etc.) versus style.
Where a white linen pocket square evokes antipathy must be a domain of quite odd persons - the white linen pocket square must be experienced in normal daily feeling as ultimate conservative classic of purity and hygiene
Opposition between aesthetic tolerance and technological elitist pseudo-casual reveals the latter group (presumably in the free Golden State?) as entindividualised mechanical robots in human bodies?
why costume or clothing is - mobbing ?- problem where no representation or functional aspect is necessary? Sounds like adolescent identity?Edited by Naive, Jr. - 1/11/14 at 1:28am
