this is not a fashion blog

cept when i think of how much i need a new winter jacket, i cringe on how much money i dont have for the items i desire most. this brings me to the pinnacle of my desire.
nigel cabourn is probably doing something that is also at the height of its desire; high quality no frills garments.
for a man, i dont think that the word "fashion" should ever be considered in shopping (or as my friend would say "adding to the kit"(which is a fucking hilarious way of putting it)) but like any dude who knows whats up will probably not tell you, that its about having a keen sense of style, not fashion.
bringing it back to cabourn, his whole designing mantra is based on a romantic era of the pieces he puts together. he uses the toughest and most revered conventional fabrics like harris tweed and mac, nothing like italian-seal-skin-diamond-tanned-suede-skin.
whether its of sir edmund hilarys historic trek to the antartic or willfred noyces photographic expedition up everest, there is an inspiration to it all; and an example of historic 'manly mens' journeys to boot.
so bringing this statement back into perspective: close your eyes and think of zegna, prada, and robert geller for men (better yet google it). then take a look at these below. this is from an outsiders perspective, i could never afford any of these labels regardless, i would just like to see dudes like nigel cabourn eclipse all the above, or maybe just stay bittersweet forever.

ive only boughten one scratch ticket in my life, i won $10.

currently listening too... A LOT of Wilco.

one of those things

remember when you seen your first music video, and you were like, "holy shit"? either in a good or bad way, but regardless you couldnt take your eyes off of it? its been a damn long time since ive sat and watched an entire music video. these days they are "self-indulgent minimalisms" "try too hard artsy" or too "over-the-top cornfests that miss the point"  (which is probably all the same thing i think).
ive been on a roots/folk-rock kick lately and decided to throw on some dr. dog. i dont download music or anything, so youtube has been whatsup for the last couple days. anyway, this video caught my attention right away. not only for its ultra sharp clean form, but for the juxtaposition of lyrical content and visual concept. it brings back this romance of the roller disco halls, a time of which i have no experience in. that said, what really crushed me was the comment right below the video. this person saying that his/her mother was one of the skaters in the video, not an actor, but a woman asked to be apart of this thing. something she probably had no idea of other than that she could pretend she was 22 again or something for a day.
one of those things you know?, that hit it home for you.

not to mention i love this song.
