I have such contempt for the fashion industry.
Like so many others its main purpose is to convince people to buy more and new and discard the old.
What is wrong with wearing clothes out?
Wouldn't that be better for the environment?
Why should it be considered some horrible faux pas to wear last year's fashion.
(Why is there even such a thing as "last year's fashion"?)
Why can't I find a colour of sweater to match the panst/shirt I bought last year?
With all the "choice" that the fashion industry claims they offer why is it so hard, or even impossible, for me to find the simple classic clothing that I like?
What the hell real difference can it possibly make what width your tie is?
If fashion really is about expressing yourself then having people wear many different widths of tie should be a desirable thing.
The sad thing is that trying to be "in" and "fashionable" is one of the biggest acts of conformity that one can commit.
