That’s what I was saying. You used to be able to buy little travel wands at the drug store, and Brookstone used to sell a huge-ass wand for skimming over your clothes, bed and fiancée.

It made the raw denim craze more palatable.

Are Oakleys low key on the up and up? I saw Rick Owens in a pair of Oakleys and he looked awesome. I've also seen some kitted out Japanese runners wearing Oakleys and most 90s models have appreciated a lot on the market. I sort of want a bitchin pair of Oakleys. I'm not talking about their lifestyle shit, I'm talking bout something like these:

@kindofyoung where do you get outfit inspo, twitter/instagram? if so what accounts do you rec?
For the past year or so most of what I like falls under one of three categories:
1. Anything maximalist
2. Anything 70s
3. Anything you could imagine an over the top movie villain wearing (which usually overlaps with the first two)

I've always been a fan of @RegisDB9, @UrbanComposition , @Fuuma and @conceptual 4est. On a daily basis and here in Sweden I'm probably also inspired by the stuff cool women here wear (which in general will be far cooler than mens fits and stores). As much of a cliché it is to say I think I'm also increasingly inspired by non-fashion things such as art or interior design.

My two favorite brands atm are Jean Paul Gaultier and Peter Do, closely followed by Ernest W Baker as well as past seasons of Yang Li and Berluti. Some other cool ones are Acne Studios, Eytys, Cmmn Swdn and Travail en Famille.

Here are a bunch of IG accounts I like, both fashion and non-fashion:

So I have a engineered garments coat that is reversible: one side is waxed cotton and the other side is a wool blend.

can I dry clean this thing? The tag says dry clean but then also I’ve read that you really shouldn’t dry clean waxed cotton? And the tag is on the wool side, nothing on the cotton side so it makes me wonder....

has a anyone dry cleaned waxed cotton before?

I recall a number of threads on this - and it generally doesn't end well. At the very least, you'd have to rewax the cotton side completely, because it will no longer be waxed once it's been dry-cleaned, and depending on how it's 'waxed' (i.e. what was used, what was the process) and the underlying fabric, you might never be able to get it back to how it was again.

Take @noob in 89 advice and hit it with some gamma rays. That should clean it right up and maintain the wax.

Didn't know I was designer. My handle is from high school, I got invited to play D&D and I made my characters backstory that he was the local wizard's baker.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
