Black overalls, grey long sleeve t-shirt, white undershirt, wire framed glasses, brown work boots, long wool coat, red scarf, flat cap I made myself. My typical daily attire or similar.
I look for durable and practical clothing made from natural fibres. Sometimes I make my own clothing but I only make/buy new things as I need, repairing when possible which it usually is. Lucky enough to have been taught to sew as a child. Recommend learning how to at least repair busted seams and holes, sew patches properly, etc. I avoid anything obviously branded unless I can remove it, including graphic prints of any kind. Shoes are the exception to my branding rule, and size 16E makes it harder to even try so I get what I can get.
I draw elements from people I have known and admired, in that way a lot of my clothing choices are purely aesthetic. The long coat and overalls combination I took from one of my earliest Marxist mentors. I put care into my appearance without concern for fashion trends or a conscious attempt to look one certain way. Avoiding more than I'm striving for.>>2232
Yes. All current trends you'll see pretty much start from bourgeois fashion companies. I believe it's an open secret that fashion trends are often planned years in advance. Capitalist trends change frequently so as to be exploited. Spring fashion, summer fashion, fall fashion, winter fashion, back to spring fashion but it's different this year and you need all of it as it comes out. Trends from non-capitalist societies tend to be longer lived and are often more varied(because how much variation is there really in contemporary clothing?), evolving naturally over longer periods of time. No specific trends are inherently bourgeois or proletarian, aside from maybe clothes made for practicality and labour that haven't been incorporated into bourgeois trends. But then can they still be considered fashion?
I'll keep dreaming of the people's Yeezys.
