I feel like Kaptain Sunshine is a bit more broad than Document for year around wear but those are definitely the two brands I considered for this. I think I just tend to like a higher percentage of KS stuff than Document and they seem to hit a few more marks for me.Same
I love KS but even the largest sizes are often too small for me, especially pants. I can wear almost any Document style in XLI feel like Kaptain Sunshine is a bit more broad than Document for year around wear but those are definitely the two brands I considered for this.

Really? Just because I don't have the American over-enthusiasm for things, and I am generally in favour of a very different kind of society to the one we live in, does not mean I am not positive about stuff I like (go check the Reading Challenge thread or the Scent thread or any number of other threads I've contributed to here). The point here is, as @LA Guy astutely observed, there's a very different feeling to being engaged in a forum and listening to a podcast. I like the ethos of the webforum, and I am sad that it seems to be declining as a form, and I really don't enjoy listening to people talk about style. This isn't a bad take or a matter of being "far off" or negative – it's simply a personal preference. And I would rather that Derek was back here contributing and being engaged (just ignoring the green oxford folk)...
Agree with these two takes. I find the vast majority of podcasts to be full of filler (I do like narrated essays, however, as they mostly lack this) and are incredibly inefficient mediums for searching and absorbing information. I come to places like Styleforum because I like seeing how people from diverse backgrounds far different to my own dress for their various lifestyles and locales. Podcasts are limited in the number of voices providing perspectives and they lack the visual element (if it's audio only) which is incredibly important for something as superficial as fashion. If the podcasts are on video and have some form of slide show of images or short video clips if not demonstrations by the podcasters, it still feels excessive to need 10 minutes+ to communicate that. I'd also conjecture as a commercialised medium content creators would support a kind of lowest common denominator perspective that appealed to whomever their core audience was. I'd prefer more varied and genuine perspectives, even if those aren't always professionally communicated.counterpoint : concept matters .
i also generally don't listen to webcasts as i find them inefficient and would rather skim a transcribed interview in a fraction of the time . i find it somewhat offensive as a prospective listener to see 1 hr + running time and you listen to the first 10 minutes and it's ghastly unprofessional broadcasting . i did try that savas pod but hung up b/c it wasn't good . the archived DWW one was blessedly only like 15 minutes so i gave it a go . was not disappointed when he uncorked the ' fashion is social language ' stuff haha
I always liked scanning recent purchase threads but reading through them feels very different from posting to them. Posting your recent purchases can feel at least a little bit like fishing for validation in the same way posting a picture of yourself can feel.Personally, as a long term user, I still like checking the recent purchases thread to see what people are buying and would love to see more commentary in there, regarding why they thought the item was worth purchasing, what they thought of it, and so on.
Might be a cliche but Pattern Recognition seems like an obvious one.I'm writing an article about dressing with intentionality, and using the idea of a writer making intentional choices about a character. I'd like to contrast the role of the writer from the role of, say, a costume designer.
Does anybody have good examples of literary passages that describe a character's attire, and what that attire says about the character?
Why don't you ignore me then? I'm not sure why you feel the need to front up and attack someone you clearly think is unpopular like some kind of superannuated school bully. It's a bit sad. Why bother?as for the reasons you just posted- that all makes sense. If you’d posted that in first place I’d never have even mentioned anything. Instead you just posted something very dismissive that comes off like a jerk.
At the moment, The Viridi-Anne or Rosen.Ok question that sparked some convos...
What brand would you wear, if you had to wear only one brand's clothing, for the next 5 years.
This hypothetical excludes footwear and undergarments, and it leaves enough room with the timeline to experiment.
I've seen this question as a lifetime commitment and have it be head to toe, but then the answer is just always ralph.
