There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.

No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).

Another important thing (if not the most important thing) to look for when choosing fabric for your clothing projects is the weight . Fabric weight means how thick/heavy a fabric is, and the weight you choose depends on what you are making and the feel you want for your garment. It's a personal choice, but it also has to be practical. The different weights can be referred to as top-weight, bottom-weight, very light, light, medium and heavy.

Gabby came out purple and limp. Doctors stabilised her in the neonatal intensive care unit and then began a battery of tests. Within days the Williamses knew their new baby had lost the genetic lottery. Her brain s frontal lobe was smooth, lacking the folds and grooves that allow neurons to pack in tightly. Her optic nerve, which runs between the eyes and the brain, was atrophied, which would probably leave her blind. She had two heart defects. Her tiny fists couldn t be pried open. She had a cleft palate and an abnormal swallowing reflex, which meant she had to be fed through a tube in her nose. They started trying to prepare us that she probably wouldn t come home with us, John says. Their family priest came by to baptise her.  

I have help with laundry and had new items ruined also. Your pants were cotton knit though. What about clothing made from cotton that is not stretchy? I have a few nice white blouses that shrunk.

Rob Yes. But the meaning of clothes goes far deeper than what you should or shouldn't wear in the workplace, Will. It can really influence what people think of us. Now, rightly or wrongly, they can make snap judgements - or quick decisions - about us.

We live in a richer world. But the gap between rich and poor is still very wide in individual countries. How to change this? Listen to Rob and Harry’s discussion, and learn some related vocabulary.

James Reinhart spent months trying to get somebody, anybody, to invest in his idea: an online clothing exchange for women and kids.

 
There are those who combine as well. I see the north face fleece vest over a lot of business casual here in SF and the silicon valley. I think they give you one when you move to the peninsula.  

Keeping only the clothes that give me a spark of joy has allowed me to relinquish items that I've been keeping out of one kind of guilt or another —that I bought something and never really wore it, because someone else gave it to me, or because it's wasteful to get rid of something that's perfectly 'good.'

Walker is working with a commercial outfit in California to compare all three girls entire genome sequences the exome plus the other 98% of DNA code, which is thought to be responsible for regulating the expression of protein-coding genes.

I love the soft feel of clothes that come out of the dryer. I also love the fresh smell of line dried clothes. What I do is hang the clothes to dry, then pop them in the dryer for about 10 minutes with a damp wash cloth/towel to soften them. This saves electricity also since I have an electric dryer.

Ageing, he thought, comes about because this developmental programme, this constant change, never turns off. From birth until puberty, change is crucial: we need it to grow and mature. After we ve matured, however, our adult bodies don t need change, but rather maintenance. If you ve built the perfect house, you would want to stop adding bricks at a certain point, Walker says. When you ve built a perfect body, you d want to stop screwing around with it. But that s not how evolution works. Because natural selection cannot influence traits that show up after we have passed on our genes, we never evolved a stop switch for development, Walker says. So we keep adding bricks to the house. At first this doesn t cause much damage a sagging roof here, a broken window there. But eventually the foundation can t sustain the additions, and the house topples. This, Walker says, is ageing.

 
A lot of North Face stuff is made in Sri Lanka that has one of the worst human rights records on the planet.  

That s because there are too many dipshits on the roads who would not see us otherwise. Of course, there is always the assclown who almost kills me, then tells me: I didn t see you. I usually reply that they should look past their nose.

To each his (or her) own. Everyone has his or her own preferences. Personally, I use a clothesline much of the time in summer, but often toss those clothes into the dryer just to fluff them. Oh, that tends to get the beetles out, too. No fun finding a beetle in your undies.

You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.

What about non-white people who wear technical clothing eh? I m 1/2 yellow and 1/2 white and I wear a ridiculous amount of technical clothing. Although I always want to go camping, I m not so stupid as to think my buddy s going to call an impromptu session of hiking and paddling. I for one wear technical clothing because I m a paranoid bastard. When those zombies come, you want to be hunkered down in a makeshift shanty dressed in cotton, that retains water and chills you when the temperature drops? I think I ll stick with my technical clothing. I may look like a douche, but damn yo, how many hipsters look like douches and are just gonna be eaten by zombies because they can t run in their drainpipe jeans? Sheeit yo, it ain t just white people wearing clothing that works, that in itself is degrading to people of other shades. What, because I m 1/2 Chinese I can t be (paranoia-fuelled) practical? C mon!!  

In a StoryCorps animation, Patrick Haggerty remembers the remarkable advice he got from his dairy farmer dad.

Expensive outdoor cloths are universally popular with all races that can afford them, because the work. What may be different about white people is the pretense that they might actually go camping or something and need such clothes.

Good for winter training. I bought the Solar Red colour bright orange really for cycling/running when it gets cold/dark.Nice size & shape. Slim fit, not big and baggy. Large size fits me perfectly. I m 6 1 / 12.5st 185cm / 80kg .Only loses 1 star because the description says its ready for whatever the weather brings . Its not, it will keep you warm but its not waterproof at all. Apart from the waterproof zips which seem a bit pointless if the rest of the material isn t waterproof! ... read more

Published as a postcard circa 1910, this sandalled strongman leaves nothing to chance in protecting his modesty, and wears a large paper leaf, thoroughly secured with plenty of string!

A deliciously explicit addition to my collection of early-1900s photographs featuring the incomparable Il Serpente, ‘The snake’ - the most naturally blessed and beautifully, brazenly seductive of all Vincenzo Galdi’s models.

The moment I realised there was more than one Cain photograph in Wilhelm von Gloeden’s catalogue, I started to spot more and more variations. This one bears small ink annotations in von Gloeden’s own hand; if anyone can read what they say and would care to share with all the readers here, I’d be delighted to add that information to my caption!

An early 20th century photograph, striking in its simplicity with an unfussy, unpretentious pose, and no studio props to distract the eye and detract from the fine physique and charming handsome face of this unknown model.

A gently beautiful nude portrait by J. G Paine, c1920, though sadly the sitter’s name is not credited - rather than the quaint and faintly comical censorship by carefully placed leaf, favoured in earlier decades, this time the charming model’s modesty is preserved by the pose alone, giving the image a refreshingly modern and unfussy look.

This man, with his fine moustache, can also be seen in this similar picture, and in stunning detail as the snake charmer.

Dating to 1905, this glorious flower-strewn scene of summery bliss created by Wilhelm von Gloeden was sold as a postcard (the publisher’s initials AE a co-incidental match for this very blog!). A fine souvenir for the traveller to treasure, or perhaps a treat to send home to a friend who shared the same appreciation of aesthetic beauty and male beauty combined!

We see a great many models posing nude for artists, but very few images of artists who choose to shed their own clothes to paint.

What a pity these sitters did not decide to annotate their photographs, how nice it would be to know their names!

A stunning addition to my small but treasured collection of portraits featuring Nino Cesarini, Italian lover of the painter Jaques d'Adelswärd-Fersen and photographed on his terrace at the Villa Lysis in Capri, around 1905.

I’ve been collecting variations on von Gloeden’s famed 1902 “Cain” photograph for a little while now, this perhaps the greatest variation of all as the model has turned to face the opposite way.

An early 20th century nude, model unknown; though he may only have posed thus to aid an artist with their work, his photograph itself is a work of singular gentle beauty.
