There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.  

No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).

Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.

This didn t sit well with the Williamses. John, who works for the Montana Department of Corrections, often interacts with people facing the reality of our finite time on Earth. If you re spending the rest of your life in prison, you know, it makes you think about the mortality of life, he says. What s important is not how long you live, but rather what you do with the life you re given. MaryMargret feels the same way. For years she has worked in a local dermatology office. She knows all too well the cultural pressures to stay young, and wishes more people would embrace the inevitability of getting older. You get wrinkles, you get old, that s part of the process, she says.

Another important thing (if not the most important thing) to look for when choosing fabric for your clothing projects is the weight . Fabric weight means how thick/heavy a fabric is, and the weight you choose depends on what you are making and the feel you want for your garment. It's a personal choice, but it also has to be practical. The different weights can be referred to as top-weight, bottom-weight, very light, light, medium and heavy.

Exactly. As an American living in the UK for the sixth straight year, I was thinking exactly this, Tessa!

Rob Yes. But the meaning of clothes goes far deeper than what you should or shouldn't wear in the workplace, Will. It can really influence what people think of us. Now, rightly or wrongly, they can make snap judgements - or quick decisions - about us.

 
We live in a richer world. But the gap between rich and poor is still very wide in individual countries. How to change this? Listen to Rob and Harry’s discussion, and learn some related vocabulary.  

Thank you for sharing the great information! I will definitely be visiting this lens from time to time for sewing patterns!

Yup, I am with Chris. Our HOA specifically bans hanging laundry, even in the backyard where it can t be seen! Besides, I also don t like the stiffness of line-dried clothing, and it would be my luck that I would forget it outside and some animal would do something horrible to it.

A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.

There are those who combine as well. I see the north face fleece vest over a lot of business casual here in SF and the silicon valley. I think they give you one when you move to the peninsula.

Walker is working with a commercial outfit in California to compare all three girls entire genome sequences the exome plus the other 98% of DNA code, which is thought to be responsible for regulating the expression of protein-coding genes.

I love the soft feel of clothes that come out of the dryer. I also love the fresh smell of line dried clothes. What I do is hang the clothes to dry, then pop them in the dryer for about 10 minutes with a damp wash cloth/towel to soften them. This saves electricity also since I have an electric dryer.

They're attracting all the investor interest because each company is trying to fill a void left by the big online retail incumbents. Though Amazon is deeply entrenched in almost every product category in e-commerce, and eBay rules resale, many consider fashion their most vulnerable segment, whether new or used. Amazon and eBay thrive as near-boundless vending machines, where customers search for anything and everything. Fashion is built on meticulous curation.

I agree with Tina. I would think that line drying vs. electric drying would not be enough to cause World War III on Jillee s very eye opening post. It s true that it saves a lot of money when you line dry clothing, but it is not always possible. Please think about things before you type/say them.

That side twisty ponytail definitely needs a tutorial to go with it are you listening, Namrata Soni ?

Thank you for all the useful info on sewing. I want to make my own clothes and I feel that I am capable, now that I have received great info from your blog. Thanks for sharing

Even once they had collected the material, the team still faced the extraordinary task of building the genetic sequence. Given the enormous volume of data, the task was akin to shredding hundreds of thousands of copies of Moby Dick and then pasting the individual sentences back together into a meaningful order.

Unlike Eakins, who created his own reference photographs using his friends and students to act out the required poses, Louis Jean-Baptiste Igout took artfully lit pictures of artists’ models in his studio, which were then sold to those in need of anatomical reference material. Much cheaper than hiring a life model, a great many artists and students were able to make use of these helpful prints, published by A. Calavas of France, c1880.

Although doubtless created as one of his many artists’ reference photographs (many more can be viewed here), this striking image by Louis Jean-Baptiste Igout bears a notable resemblance to the deliberately provacative poses used by Vincenzo Galdi a few decades later in his erotic work. Indeed, if not for the known provenance, it could easily be taken as even more modern than that - there is something I’m unable to put my finger on which makes this appear undated and ageless : it could be a contemporary image shot in black and white as an aesthetic choice, not merely the limitations of the technology of its time.

I’m surprised to find that none of these individual images are repeats from previous sheets, though the models are definitely men we have seen before in numerous other poses in these artists’ reference pages.

Another of Louis Jean-Baptiste Igout’s studio photographs taken to aid the artist in perfecting their depiction of human anatomy without the necessity of hiring a live model - I love these for their frozen moments of immense drama : such scenes you could place this lone man into as he acts out the pose of a fallen warrior, the awe-struck mortal facing his gods; and I cannot help but wonder what works of art this one photograph may have become, in whose hands it was held and studied when freshly printed.
