…an acute sense of fashion…

I’ve never really been hip when it comes to fashion anyways, but it’s always irritated me when the industry takes perfectly functional clothing and converts it into something mainstream and trendy that will sell out in all the major markets, even at $79 a piece. Mechanic’s shirts with name and logo patches on the chest are for mechanics, just as painter’s pants were invented for those who spend thirteen hours a day painting houses and trucker’s hats for those who actually drive trucks for a living. I’m sure that, just like in the movies and on television and everywhere else today, it’s so much easier to recycle old ideas instead of coming up with new and different ones, but I think it’s an insult to blue collar workers around the world when rich kids are running around in freshly-pressed farmer’s overalls that will never see a single bale of hay or **shudder** manure. For the amount of money that Old Navy and Abercrombie & Fitch and The Gap are cranking in from these promotions, you’d think that they could create something original – quit mocking everyone else and make something new for a change…
