Normcore, gotta love it?
« on: April 09, 2014, 04:21:35 PM »
http://www.slate.com/articles/life/doonan/2014/04/normcore_the_new_fashion_trend_and_its_perils.html

http://www.buzzfeed.com/joannaborns/how-normcore-are-you

Well, at least you gotta give Simon Doonan props for his saucy synopsis.

I dunno. Normcore was a look we were all aware of back in the 80's when we all realised everything was recycling and quickly so.  It was another look to add to the repertoire.  The concept of normcore is that people donning normcore know its a look. 3e degré as my frenchie friends disent. 

One could be ne plus ultra normcore and not know it, so therefore not normcore. A paradox.  A catch-22.

We must tell all the norm corers they are hipper than thou, and then the trend implodes?  Or we are meta and ready, for a truly popular fashion moment?

We are more than ready for a new fashion moment , and one that evolves from the young - uns , something also that makes a comment about there life. I do have a fantasy off a mass non buying off new clothing , with Abercrum and Fletch going broke and Calvin k " resting ' in an appropriate Day Care facility .

A&F is going broke!  And its been reported this year that American girls now could give a shit about jeans. They want what I call stretchaneenie pants.  ;D

A&F was a kind of cool old company before that creep took it global and mass market.  I wouldn't mind them downsizing to stick around and go back to their Adirondacky roots.

Anything that gets the masses of 20-40 yo men out of these hideous, too small, too tight, too short, suits is A.O.K. in my books.  Its a look that has outlived its novelty and looks like crap on 75% of men.

I am a Normcore icon and didn't know it.  Or rather, I wasn't because I didn't know it, but I looked like one.

Now that I know it, I can pretend to be one, I suppose.

The truth is that I really don't give a shit and never did.

Couldn't afford to anyway, so at least now I can claim a trend wave to ride.

According to the test, I'm not NormCore. And I agree, I'm just a mess dressing  ;D

He was identified as one the 10 worst CEO,s in some internet thing I read. He also has a face that screams I have had work done on me. His rewards for making the company fail are huge. Boards are stupid are they not.

i shop at alberts discount, i wear dickies. dont be jealous, not everybody can pull this off
3/27/14 vl >300k cd4=9... plenty of room to improve

I set into a downward spiral
Caught an illness that was fucking viral
I heard some words of wisdom the other day
And they went in one ear and out the other one

With all the vapors that the vile humans brew
Shining through.. the blight of you
Shining

Dickies---work ware ? if its the same I rate Dickies very high .They do a fleece lined canvas twill overall , excellent padded socks , and good heavy cotton Tee Shirts.Oh yes quite a dash can be cut in appropriate Dickies work ware. Though yours truly will then wear a Harris Tweed Jacket with his unpadded overalls and a Cashmere scarf so I never looked as though I had just crawled from under a motor vehicle . It was my fine weather winter day ware on Orkney for many a season.


Spell check gives Duckie for Dickie.

Dickies are sold in jean / leather / biker shops frequented by hipsters and gays, in Switzerland....  So they would be normcore in the USA but not here.  ;D
