The world is falling apart. We live in a world with an establishment that we never wanted. We watch our rights being taken away and trampled. We protest, we walk, we petition. While it may seem asinine, fashion often mirrors our times. We are moving on from pure skate and grunge to polished looks mixed with our cherished items from the past.
Things that should have never worked together now do. We take the established look of what we are supposed to wear and make it our own. We wear our Dries Van Noten Windsor Check with a Wales Bonner sweater that looks like a track jacket. The smart camel blazer with the Corduroy Pants. The look is reminiscent of Suedehead, the twice reoccuring subculture that followed Skinhead in the ’70s. They kept the attitude but swapped their heavy boots for brogues and tees for suits. They grew their hair long while keeping their influences broad. They listened to everything from reggae to soul to ska to glam—anything to keep the miasma of the outside world from invading their thoughts. As Morrisey so eloquently sang in his song Suedehead.
Why do you come here ?
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
Why do you come here
When you know it makes things hard for me ?
