    I sometimes wonder if I should bother to hate on trends simply because they differ from my tastes and area able to be captured in a few accurate stereotypes.

    That blog post makes some amusing points, but is also quite clearly coming from an overtly diminutive perspective.

    As I get older, I hate a lot less and ignore a lot more.

    Didn't NYT have a recent article about menswear and this type of shit. I like military and typical guys stuff, it's a good way to be into fashion and asthetics, but not really be into fashion (although lately I've seen a ton of metrosexual type dudes in american herritage stuff, which looks weird). there's tons of WAYWT shots where the person is in $3k worth of clothes but looks like they just left khols, but at least have an idea on how things would fit. it gives them like a hobby, while others are none the wiser.

    what i find strange is some of my friends say they can't wait until stuff like this is out of vogue because then it will be cheaper for them. ill admit, ill probably move onto something else that catches my attention.

    The Guardian is is really digging into Mike Ashley, USC and Sports Direct

    What on earth was Nigel Cabourn thinking of, getting involved with a company that's business practices are at best ethically dubious, branded a “scar on British business” by the Institute of Directors, was under government investigation and legal action?

    I can see it would give him brand exposure, but I don't imagine the average Sports direct customer is likely to be persuaded to try the mainline/authentic lines - Sports Direct works on buying up brands that still have a little history attached to them e.g. Kangol, Dunlop and Karrimor - using the labels on cheaply made goods that are marked up with 'discounts' on made up retail prices. I can't see Cabourn getting much of the revenue from the collaboration pieces either. Why risk damaging your brand name by collaborating with a business that is renowned for ethically dubious business practices?

    that article reads like the creative brief I just got for a new project — even down the to the abundant use of 'single quote marks'.
