Jacksepticeye Man Bun

jacksepticeye_style

Do we love or loathe Jack’s Man Bun? For some it’s on the nail and for me it’s a case: Jack can wear anything (he’s so groovy).

Jacksepticeye so fly

Looking at his recent video with the Spiderman crew I thought he looked so fly with the man bun. He looks like a young Paul Weller with the white collar shirt straight out of a MOD movie like Quadrophenia.

For the record, I am impressed by Jack’s latest style and will give him a big Kitmeout thumbs up! Nice one Jack!

PewDiePie Style

pewdiepie-style

Does PewDiePie personify perfect gaming fashion? The ubiquitous T-Shirts, Hoodies, Sweatpants and Trainers (Sneakers to our State side family). Or, and it’s a big ‘OR’, does PewDiePie need a fashion make-over?

We no PewDiePie influences millions of people (Gamers) across the globe. So does the modern-day Dickens have a responsibility to encourage us (Gamers) to be more conscious of our appearance. Let’s look at PewDiePie’s current garb as revealed through his latest YT posts:

Nice Mustard Hoody
Ubiquitous White T-Shirt (with witty graphic – nice!)

Are we seeing a fashion statement in these images from PewDiePie or are we simply seeing a guy wearing what’s comfortable? Suppose the man himself can only answer that question.

My view is PewDiePie needs to at least try a fashion make-over – it seems almost like he has an obligation to do so – as a modern day Dickens!

Fashion Blog History

A retrospective of a Kitmeout Blog by ‘The Butcher’ back in 2013.

On the 1st May 2013 The Butcher posited:

‘Does the dominance of gay fashion designers suggest an endemic heterophobic propensity by the fashion illuminati which is manifest in its most insidious form by the pervasive tendency to corrupt the female body image by persisting with anorexic “de-feminised” models as a paradigm of perfection ultimately undermining the male/female synergy? … or perhaps the fashion illuninati are simply a pawn in the plan for androgenous evolution.’

The question today is how accurate was The Butcher’s position back in 2013? Is there a fashion illuminati with a gender-agenda?

Is ‘heterophobia’ endemic in the fashion industry? Are we as a species being deconstructed and re-designed? If so, who are the perpetrators?

THE GENDER-AGENDA

Japanese Jeans – Kojima

OKAYAMA KOJIMA – Although just a small town in the prefecture of Okayama, Kojima has managed to play an integral role in the Japanese textile industry since the early twentieth century. Kojimas textile production history stretches back hundreds of years, but it wasn’t until post WWII that Japan became one of the largest producers of Japanese work wear and Japanese school uniforms. The first pair of Japanese jeans were produced in Kojima in the late 1960s.

In the span of a few decades, Japan has firmly established itself as one of the best denim producers in the world. As many of the High Fashion and American brands that inspired the first Japanese jeans chose to outsource their work overseas, the jean producers in Kojima chose to keep things local, refining their craft and continuing to use vintage looms and old techniques. The result is a culture of denim fanatics and an array of brands being headed up by true craftsman that care as much about their products as their most loyal customers.

Kojima

Many of the brands in Kojima produce denim from vintage weaving machines known as shuttle looms. The result is a high quality denim fabric that is only half the width of the rolls produced by newer machines but one with a more durable finished edge, originally referred to as selvage.

Some denim houses still choose to indigo dye cotton by hand using the leaves from the indigo plant for their most premium jeans. This expensive and tedious process, as well as many of the other techniques used to make premium denim in Okayama has its roots in kimono production going back hundreds of years. The combination of old-world technique, with a modern silhouette in mind has earned Kojima a place in denim history.

Sugar Cane Clothes – widest online collection

Take a butchers at the widest selection of Sugar Cane Clothing online at Togged.com

Uniquely Japanese denim made from you guessed it sugar cane. For many years, Sugar Cane Jeans were a ferociously guarded Japanese secret but today the brand is attracting global attention. Interestingly, Sugar Cane prefer to use the vintage term dungarees in preference to the term jeans to describe their product: The word jeans has become the vernacular for faux denim fashion wear that masquerades as the tough, classic waist overalls history made famous.

We have thoroughly analyzed our forerunners jeans from the 1900s in chronicle order from yarn, dye, weave and construction to components . We have with us the actual results of fabric woven and colour fade test on the original pants worn. In order to create our own original jeans, it took over 20 years of research. To perfectly reproduce denim fabrics from 50 to 100 years ago in todays advanced period is extremely difficult. To begin with we had to look for old power looms that had worked to weave denim fabric in those days, restore them and adjust them to weave the fabric we have. It was not easy to revive the old machines that disappeared a long time ago due to rationalization. Nowadays, the old power looms are not so unusual but in the early research stage, satisfactory fabrics could not be woven on the old looms found. It was a joint operation with the weaver of trial and failure and advanced step by step.
