Serious question, why do you follow me around on this board? Your entire posting history here is just you following me around to different threads, harassing me.OK, I will.
A friend of mine recently scanned some remarkable scans of old issues of Esquire and Apparel Arts, all originally published around the 1930s or so. Apparel Arts was a quarterly large-format publication, started by Arnold Gingrich, who was also the founder of Esquire. Where Esquire was aimed at...dieworkwear.com
as a person of color, what i see are the WASPiest of white men, engaging in the most white-male privileged and exclusionary activities that I can think of.
Look at captions, and what they are doing:
country clubs, golfing, yachting, skiing, hunting, "english country squire", esquestrian
literally not a single POC in any of the thousands of Apparel Arts illustrations @dieworkwear worships.
The few women they show are all white and blonde, and serve only as trophies for the white men.
So I hope you will understand if I don't find it relevant.
If @dieworkwear thinks this country of full of white supremacists now, he might want to think a bit harder about the mentality of these folks he is glorifying.
If I saw anyone dressed like that today, I would assume they came out of the set of a period drama.
The dumbest thing is that quite a few of these illustrations still show oxfords being worn without suits !
You said in an earlier post that you dislike my writing. So then why follow me around here for a year? Are you under a lockdown? Are you living through a once in a lifetime global pandemic that forces you to stay at home?
I put you on block after our last exchange, where I offered to pay for a member's fees to be nice, and you accused me of something nefarious. Seriously, just leave me alone. Or at least only make 1/10th of your posting history here about me.
