I'm with you. I guess I'm feeling that there's too little emphasis on coherence. I'd love to see more looks informed by setting, background and culture. But what I see more often is people appropriating stuff they're unfamiliar with and wearing it in ways that make no sense. Stuff that would be over the top at a Southern country club soiree being worn to work. Or guys dressing like they're going to Ascot for dinner at a diner. If people were expressing their background, or tweaking social norms, or making some sort of statement, that I would find interesting. But usually the subtext is missing, and I'm left baffled at the intent. I think what you're talking about is an advanced approach to dress that is too often co-opted to excuse the very absence of cultural and social meaning you're suggesting is so important.
