New ByBorre collection is 🔥
View attachment 1484198
Speaking about Byborre, I'm utterly confused by them. I tried to find what kinda stuff they were doing, but all I saw in every press release was innovation this, innovation that. No more musty grandma knits etc etc. I was trying to figure out if it had any technical elements to it's innovations, but didn't really see it besides some 8 bit knit which sounds like tech marketing babble more than anything. Does anyone know?

Everytime someone responds back to a trend statement, the year that it was cool keeps being pushed back.

Oh yeah, the sf uniform of raw denim and CPs that's so 2010, I mean 2008, I mean 2005, I mean...

Oh yeah, the 70s have been back for like a year, I mean 3 years, I mean since Brad Pitt did it in 2002, I mean...

The 70s started to be recognized as "cool" on SF about a year ago.

I'm wearing suede bell bottoms and a turtle neck right now. I can neither agree nor disagree on what's in.

Do real metal fans listen to like Boris or do they think it is too hipster-Pitchfork tainted? I'm listening Rainbow by Boris with Michio Kurihara and it is quite good.
boris is awesome because they don't care. they'll do drone, they'll do ambient, they'll do pop rock, they'll do heavy rock, they'll do basically straight pop, they'll do hardcore... it's hard NOT to like Boris because their discog has something for everyone and it's all great

It seems like there was a lot more contrast between decades. 50s/60s/70s/80s are pretty recognizable fashion. Maybe the 90s too? Did fashion stop changing as much or am i too close to the graph paper to see the slope?

Listening to Akuma No Uta as we speak... talk about variety!

I think the decades don't actually map to fashion or music very well at all, e.g. 1962 had more in common with 1956 than 1966, 1972 had more in common with 1968 than 1976, and 1993 had more in common with 1988 than 1999 - depending on where you were in the world of course...

I think you can still map styles by decade. 2000 fashion was very different from 2010, and 2010 is very different from now. But it's easier to wear clothes that are "out of date" nowadays. People can dress according to very niche tribes online that are totally disassociated from their physical reality. So there are still raw denim communities that dress like it's 2010. And Ivy Style guys who still dress like the reprinting of Take Ivy just dropped.
