Doc Martens & Red Laces.

Doc Martens & Red Laces.
Every culture has their secret codes and uniforms. Some are totally obvious and overt but most are less obvious and esoteric. Doc Martens, the classic U.K. boot, has been a favorite shoe across most of the punk spectrum. Did you know lace colors are a code? This is true and well documented. Red laced DM's are commonly associated with Anti-Racist punk groups. These folks generally have shaved heads and are often unfortunately confused with their awful, equally bald, opposites. Interesting little fact about vintage footwear. There's so much in our wardrobes. Continue reading

Fashion As Design.

What We Wear - How We Wear It - Why We Wear It - What It Means - How It's Made.

These five simple questions are more important now than they ever have been before. Life has become a system of mass-identification rituals. Group-likes, viral-trends, social-shames - whatever. We have flooded the internet with our 'individual expressions.' Back in the day, it used to be important to watch the the cool folks start new trends INDIVIDUALLY. Now we watch and see who the 'early adopters' are and who's 'dressing like so & so' before everyone else, eventually, does, too.

Sounds, boring, to me.

So let's think. Who are you? What do you want to tell the world? How are you able to do that? Here's two quick examples:

Eco-conscious young folks can all be seen wearing the same brands, for the same reasons (functional, fashionable, trendy) - recycled, sustainable manufacturers etc. Denim-Dudes (and Dudettes) hunt out those 19.5oz chore jeans and brass chain-wallets - functional, fashionable, trendy - made in USA, natural materials, long lasting product etc.

Just a little lo-fi thought food for you all.

The Breakers Hotel.

The Breakers Hotel.
Vintage Breakers Employee Cabana Tees.
Henry Flagler opened The Breakers Hotel to support his newly constructed Florida East Coast Railway. In 1896 it was known as the Palm Beach Inn. Guests flocked and soon began requesting rooms with views "over the breakers (waves)" and thus, was renamed The Breakers Hotel in 1901. Rooms were $4 a night and included 3 meals a day. Presidents, dignitaries, royalty and those seeking a glimpse into that world are regular guests. Today the Breakers is one of the worlds top luxury hotels. Accommodations start well into the thousands of dollars per night. Above are three cabana-tees from the 1970's/80's. Cocktail girls and bartenders would be seen wearing these ringers. A nice piece of Palm Beach History. Continue reading
