    Haven's model shots and editorials have always made the gear look way worse/really boring imo. Can't say I've ever been impressed with their styling.
    Personally I thought LN-CC circa 2012-2013 was really the pinnacle for product shots.

    Does anyone else always read the "die" part of "dieworkwear" as the German article instead of an (English) imperative verb, or is that just me?

    Ssense fw15 product shots (specifically the "ensembles" at the bottom) seem to be a big step up from what they used to be.


    Almost every single time.

    The weird part is it happened even before I started learning German.

    Not just you. I had three years of German and it's impossible for me not to default to that when I look at it. I usually imagine the "workwear" part in a German accent as well.

    Would be interested to hear some of your thoughts on this article about the current day state of the kimono and the surrounding debate of appreciation/appropriation.

    Paging @Rosenrot, @nicelynice, @fuuma, @dieworkwear, and all of you noragi wearers out there.

    Ridiculous. There's nothing to appropriate about the kimono or noragi, they're not religious or spiritual articles like a Native American head dress. Even the jōe, worn by shinto and buddhist priests, can be worn by laypeople. I see nothing wrong with wearing the casual wear of another culture as long as it's not done with mean spirits. I get compliments all the time wearing a noragi, or jinbei or yukata when I wear one - Japanese people are quite appreciative that people abroad take an interest in Japanese culture. I understand Asian-Americans face different types of discrimination as a minority, but surely there are better battles to fight than casual wear?
