Have you tried to buy clothes these days that are NEW. everything has been Vintage-ized. Worn frayed, splattered paint....
Our society is in such a hurry with so little patience that we can not even wait for our clothing to attain that beautiful lived in quality that makes them comfortable. We need it right away and we are willing to pay extra (quite a bit extra) to have some Chinese slave laborers put holes and splatter paint on our jeans for us. (can you imagine what the Chinese workers are thinking of America?)
Now I am not advocating going back to the days when a new pair of Levis was stiffer that a sheet of plywood...But, I think a lot of this pre aged stuff looks ridiculous. The aging does not even look authentic especially when every pair of jeans is identically aged.
I have a great appreciation for a great pair of comfy old and worn jeans but I like them to be worn by my body and my life not by some sand blasting machine.
PLEASE PLEASE bring back NEW new clothes!!
