Some change is good, no change is better(?)
A picture of an old dude so crippled he uses not one but two walking sticks and a stuffy conserative adagium (supposedly English)… now the reader may think: why care, why bore us, Why give a fuck? Well, because it provides me with the opportunity to
plug link back to my own posts. And y’all know self reverence uh, self reference is what I am all about. So allow me to crowbar in the first plug while you, behind your desktop, laptop or tablet* study this picture and mentally undress this geriatric cripple (seek help, you sexual deviant) by stripping him of his frumpy country field coat and tweed flat cap. Now imagine him thirty~forty years younger, you got the image? Does it resemble anything as glorious as this (plug #1)? That’s right folks, that is what consistency in dress looks like, the English two button tweed jacket with lapped seems, navy crew neck sweater and most remarkably, the signature pseudo-nonchalant collar style (plug #2), have not changed one iota. It’s a shame there aren’t more pictures of David Somerset (plug #3) around, because I get the feeling we are duly missing out on some serious #menswear greatness. Also the particulary strong same-old-shit-is-the-same factor strenghtens my sneaking suspicion that in classic menswear the only ‘way forward’ is the way back (plug #4) via what is known on the internets as old-man style (plug #5). Oh yeah, and autisticly and apathetically ignoring the rest. I believe that in management speak this is referred to as ‘focus’.
Mmm, 5 linkjes op maar 257 woorden, niet slecht, zeker niet slecht. Wat betreft de onontbeerlijke blogger eigenpijperij scoor ik een ruime voldoende, al zeg ik het zelf.
*If you read this on your smartphone, well,
then go fuck yourself please reconsider, I actually make a conscious effort to always post big pictures. And as a last word on change or the lack thereof: if you must change, better disguise it as ‘a mean to guarantee continuity’, for instance when you decide to sell old clothes ‘because fashion changed your timeless style changed’ or in any other situation in which personal dogmas and infallible beliefs turn out to be erroneous.
