basically the new fad: a bit of techwear, comfy, a little bit of normcore with a flavor of dorkyness.
sick layers, he's literally the only one not looking like a loser in this pic, the guy sitting in the front might be okay too but his trousers look kinda shitty from this angle
Clumbia, Northface, Marmot, etc...
Possibly Carharrt WIP/ Norse Projects/ Other clean european street shit
how are they practical? please tell me. are you going on an arctic expedition or hiking across the andes mountains? no you aren't. your walking around town or going to the grocery store.
ITT: faggots make a dumb trend trying to look as bad as possible and then get upset after it dies in 2 weeks. This is just paalewave and normcore all over again. If you actually wear this shit thinking it looks good you deserve the ridicule you will get from plebs and fashionable people alike
This is basically the aspect of techwear that I even bother with the threads, I live in Scandinavia so it's just mad fucking practical to have techy clothing, also hiking and /out/ shit is fun so it's a bonus I can do that and look good at the same time.
And my focus has been on the Scandi brands anyway, shit like Fjällräven, Houdini, Sasta, Haglöfs, Tierra etc
no. you need to have your jacket in a silly color. you dont clash enough. look at the OPic. there isnt a single person in there doing a proper color pallet. the coat is fine but get a pair or red pants or something.
So basically, it's just what an average outdoors enthousiast wears ?
Damn, this is slick af.
A lot of the old physics experimentalists at my school dress like this, albeit more disheveled. It's the theory guys that have that boring, professorial look.
techwear is over
sell your wardrobes
out of the east asian metropolis
we need to be closer to rocks
2015 will be the year of geologycore
it is an entirely different philosophical proposition.
with techwear we are engaged in a summoning the future which is sited in the east asian metropolis. here we see techwear at play with cyberpunk futures and the frenzied acceleration of the process.
with geologycore we see a radical shift from the accelerated circuitries of capitalist efficiency and ever more compacted intensification of events. in many ways we are seeing a going-back towards of life towards non-life in the other direction, which i will name deccelerationism.
in geology the slow movement of tectonic plates contrasts with capitalist speed (which pervades all modern life), the ordered chaos of geology's 'events' are spoken of in millions of years, whereas we speak in terms of mere nanoseconds in the chaotic order of automated financial transactions that are at work everywhere in the east asian metropolis.
what is the most geologycore way to die? i propose that in death, geologycorists should be subsumed in geology's process, which is to say such events as an erupting volcano.
so indeed we geologycorists should want to die in such a manner. we should be very comfortable in this death, to "die in a fucking fire", so to speak.
People who spend a significant amount of time long distance hiking and mountaineering will find that pieces of their gear seep into their wardrobe. Nobody's walking down the street with long johns+shorts and a down jacket but you might start wearing your soft shell when you have to get to work because it's held up to hell and has a good look.
i recently bought this soft shell
is it too shitty to wear as casual wear?
My whole point with "geologycore" or whatever was wear what is functional when you hike. Find a good soft shell with a focus on functionality and you might just end up wearing it when the weather requires.
That being said, the jacket is pretty boring and dadcore.
