    RFT: some dudes are really delusional regarding what they wear vs. costume. If you carefully consider and cultivate a wardrobe, take pride in its coherence, regularly consider "inspiration" from runways and street style (or subcultures, etc.), and occasionally photograph yourself or encourage others to take pictures of you to be shared with the general public, your clothes ≅ costume

    What inspired this post of yours? What is the significance or meaning of "clothing vs costume"? Basically, what I'm trying to understand, is... what?

    Shore, seems to me there's some middle ground as well. One can cultivate their own style, be inspired, and not simply "dress for the internet in a costume." When I wear nice clothes normal people with decent style who aren't internet clothing nerds compliment me occasionnally, and I don't know anyone from the internet. They aren't all, "OMG is that a TOJ?" They just dig that I put on a nice jacket and sweater, not because it was featured on a blog or something.

    Ouch, sorry to hear it. If it helps, I'm probably picking up a pair in the next month or two, and you're free to live vicariously through me. Our ToJ DRs are pretty different, though.

    Also, I have yet to see tech stuff that I'd want to wear if I wasn't going hiking or something.

    The bcgkrd is of friends and people I follow on twitter, there's a pretty even split among people happily attending some sort of self conscious clothing-related event (i.e., tweed ride, corduroy club), and people mocking those events as contrived and ridiculous. Of course they're contrived and ridiculous! Point being, if you run a clothing blog or a store, so are most of the things you do. And that's... OK.


    Re: being retarded. Was at an event over the weekend where they were handing out tshirts to attendees, and the kids sorting the tshirts were from a special education org. The kid couldn't figure out which shirt to give me, and when he finally got it straight he shook his head and said "Sorry, I'm retarded." It was both funny and sad.

    Gotcha. I mostly agree, except I take issue with the idea of an "authentic non-contrived outfit."

    Can you let me know when/if you get them? Would at least like to know impressions.

    ^What is the range of clothing that you plan to wear them with.

    I have this idea that I should be able to find one pair of boots that I could pair with odd trousers all the way down to denim. I haven't yet found the ideal pair and am wondering if they exist.
