i think that's why monitaly works so well. you can dress things up or down. you can make suits/setups out of things for vaguely presentable looks. you can dress like a psychedelic hobo. and there's sectors of monitaly i'm not that into, which means there's room for change.I love the conversations around this hyperthetical, and I love the idea of trying to think ahead for 5 years and considering what life events would happen and how much you care about being prepared for that.
It's cheap and cheerful, a variety of fits in multiple garments, multiple streams of use cases (biz cas, atheleisure, streetwear, lounging, and so forth), an enormous palette of colours that usually have some seasonal coherence (both in terms of traditional seasonal palettes, and multiple garments having harmonized palettes that given season). You're not going to get a statement piece that just fucking owns or anything, but supporting cast garments by the dozen, a full wardrobe for not much cash, and stuff that fits in multiple contexts all have value.I don't understand the whole Uniqlo cult to begin with, basic mall brand, the collabs are no different from the H&M x CdG etc... stuff.
Wait, isn't the Big Shirt just an honest 90s cut aka size up up shirt?How have they not reissued the Big Shirt yet? Def top 5 most iconic RL pieces of all time.
Don't know if it was me or Broch but The Sleepwalkers was one of my most amusing read last year, threw me for a loop.If you are looking for some passages on clothing and character, the first chapter of the first book of Broch's Sleepwalkers has some passages where Joachim considers how he feels in civilian clothes, and what it means to wear a uniform (this is technically an imagining of what another character would theorize about a uniform, and it's unclear whether this imagining is Joachim's own or that of the narrative voice, but that uncertainty is just how high modernism worked in them days). His clothes and how he wears them form an emotional key to his character, and his fussing with them in a specific way forms part of the emotional (anti-) climax of the book.
EDIT: word salad typos
I haven't read any of it for 15 years, and the last time I only re-read The Anarchist, but Joachim's attitudes towards clothing has stuck with me. The uniform that protects him from the anarchy of feeling, his fussiness at having everything buttoned and strapped and sealed, his horror of dressing bourgeois. I imagine he would be comfortable ordering a war crime, and would faint if he saw someone wearing a Rico shirt.Don't know if it was me or Broch but The Sleepwalkers was one of my most amusing read last year, threw me for a loop.
YEEZYOk 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.
Well, I love a lot of the YEEZY collections. The earthy and pastel tones of the collections match the aesthetic I've stumbled into with my own style recently. The unisex nature of the collections are also hugely appealing; I prefer the fit of women's sizing already in my everyday wear. I have these leggings I like to wear; they fit great, looking great with a boot and something slightly oversized up top. Although, I generally avoid oversized; I prefer slim all the way through.Tell me more, unless this was humor

Does anyone have experience replacing or fixing a Pearl snap? I have this LVC shirt that I really like and had the pearl come off in the wash. Can’t find it anywhere but I believe I found the correct replacement online. If I bought it, would the switch to the new Pearl be something most tailors could do or does this require a particular tool?
