  1. ‘Yoga Pants are Ruining Women’ and Other Style Advice From Fran Lebowitz

    “I wish that real estate were cheaper and clothes were more expensive.” “Designers now, they all have these things called mood boards. I suppose they think a sense of discovery equals invention.” “If you walked around New York you would think there was a terrible mirror famine.” (via Kottke)

    For this: “on clothing forums … an argument erupts, a bunch of random strangers weigh in, some vociferous poster throws down a 1930s illustration from ‘Apparel Arts’ or a photo of the Duke of Windsor, and everyone simmers down.”

Mods compared to other subcultures. “Tellyology”: shaping history with both eyes on a potential TV series. Ray Davies. Miles Davis. Blur. Noel Gallagaher. Today’s Mod revival as a ploddy “dad rock” conservatism. The British Music Experience.
