The Inaugural Rant

Quite some time has passed since my last post, but for my dozen followers- I have returned. It may be the influence of copious amounts of time (sometimes known as the life of a recent graduate, or unemployment), but whatever the reason may be, I feel a need to write.

In the late nights of my procrastination I have spent many hours eating the best of Asian junk food and gawking over men’s clothing. It’s always exciting for me to see finely tailored clothing, or some avant-garde streetwear. Unfortunately, the blogs I follow are riddled with a distinctly subversive sense of condescension. It has become far too common that people’s value is judged by the fades on their selvedge, or the exclusiveness of their gear. It’s so silly.

I am completely divided because I think these various forms of social media are great forums to share information, but there are just so many haters. In my opinion, one’s character greatly supersedes their clothing. This may just be a reminder to myself, since I want to write more about clothing, but who you are is far greater than what you wear. Sometimes it’s really easy to forget that on the interwebs..

The gentleman in the top photo giving me the stink eye is the owner of this beautiful 1976 BMW 2002. He bought it in 1992, while he was in high school, and has either daily-driven, tracked, or shown it ever since. It has been repainted and had the interior redone twice, been on multiple suspension and wheel setups, and had a variety of engine modifications. The owner tells me that, as a young father and no-longer-boy-racer, the car’s current iteration is his most favorite, and he only plans minor interior and suspension tweaks in the future. More details and photos to follow.
