Written by
Fri, 07.18.14 at 3:04pm

The Internet simultaneously improves and ruins everything. Like last week, when Mathieu Blazy was outed as the head designer of the equally illustrious and mysterious Maison Martin Margiela. We now know who’s designing the line. Which is good. Blazy deserves...


Three Hooded Experiments

Outlier’s “Three Hooded Experiments” yielded some exciting results. That’s exactly how I imagine starting sentences if I wrote for an academic journal. Personally, I’d prefer to write for a scientific journal that publishes agricultural science experiments, but that’s only because...

Daiki Suzuki is one of the true meswear masters of our time. Only Suzuki is capable of introducing new, challenging silhouettes with little to no introduction so goddamn successfully. We may talk of directional European designers or high-concept runway shows...

Fuck this weather, dawgies. I’m actually starting to think global warming is a real thing (LOL). I want to dress like a cybergoth all year round, but these perennial summer rays are meddling with my perspiration levels. Fear not though....

You got that girlie right where you want her. You’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Catfish and it’s starting to get dark. You’ve just split a large gluten-free pizza and conversation is flowing (you’re not as boring as you...

I harbor a heavy disdain for camo, man. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Camo is wack. And BAPE is pretty much synonymous with that shit, so why not write up about their latest collaboration with Coca-Cola?...


DashCon 2015: It Couldn’t Be Much Worse Than DashCon 2014, Could It?

Look, DashCon 2014 was a huge mess. I’ll be the first person to admit that, and I’m a dragon werewolf—you know how stubborn they can get! I understand if the idea of DashCon 2015 rubs you the wrong way. But...

I haven’t met a single person that doesn’t like the Air Max 1. It might just be perfect. Even my dream woman can’t really compare. That’s just something she’s going to have to accept if we’re going to be together....


In Defense Of Catey Shaw’s “Brooklyn Girls”

Written by

It was probably during my seventh watching of “Brooklyn Girls,” the captivating, cloying, post-Lana Del Rey meme of a song by Catey Shaw that has taken the Internet by (relative) storm this week, that I realized it. The party scene,...

Second/Layer makes clothes for a “non-gender bias” audience. For those not versed in designer speak, that means both men and women can wear their pieces. What a novel concept. That also means enough drape to satisfy my mom’s interior decorating...

Did you know that on July 20, 1969 at 4:18pm we landed on the Moon? Probably not because you’re, like, 11 and the Internet has rendered historical context moot. Anyways, GE—yeah General Electric—played a pretty big role in developing the...

Gant Rugger makes this “Wave-O-Rama” sweater and I’m down. This is kinda like a more subdued Charlie Brown-style sweater, so some of your friends may make some Charlie Brown-style jokes at your expense when you wear this that involve you...

Your “number” doesn’t matter anymore. It never really did, but now we know that it doesn’t. No one talks about it. No one asks for it. At this point, we all assume that we’ve all been equally slutty and we’re...
