So a lot of us like to talk about the aesthetics and semiotics of fashion and clothing but I personally don't want to shit up the WAYWT/RFT thread, so I'll figure we'll move the discussion here. Some things to think about: -Is workwear/heritage still a legitimate concept despite the proliferation of obnoxious "fashion not style" people? -Is prep a totally worthless aesthetic? -Is wearability within context something we should consider when judging an article of clothing or a fit? -Is it possible to objectively judge and deconstruct our own aesthetic preferences? Is it possible that we ourselves are focusing on the wrong thing? -To what extent is brandwhoring acceptable? -How much can we look at marketing/hype, both positive or negative, when judging a peice of clothing? -How can one deal with charges of elitism as it regards high-cost items?
