    How is any of that (besides the boots, maybe) uniquely ‘workwear’? It’s not like they’re wearing high-vis tabards and hecking boiler suits

      Sweatie, every single one of those pieces of garments were originally work wear that were turned into fashion wear for normies, right down to the jeans. Regular men wore pleated trousers and button up shirts (and suits) before denim jeans became mainstream. Same with crew neck t-shirts. They were originally military inner shirts. The bomber jacket was designed for and worn by literal bombers/air force pilots.

        That’s just stupid reductionism. Like saying wearing a jacket with vents on the back is LARPing, because ‘the vent was meant for equestrian use don’t’cha know?’ Or like saying wearing pleated trousers is LARPing as a Cossack, since westerners always prefered flat fronts up until the 1920s

            >anon just knows the history of where these garments come from and you don’t.
            I just gave examples of the historical roots of two common features of modern menswear, you spacker
            This is just how this shit works. Some feature or item of clothing is introduced for a specific practical purpose. The people wearing it decide it’s actually really comfy/useful/aesthetic, and so it filters out into wider use. It’s not ‘stolen valor’ or anything stupid like that, it’s just a good idea being recognised and adopted

            you’re talking about features of garments he’s talking about entire garments like blue jeans.
            he’s correct.
            but his logic that just because something originates somewhere else makes it stolen valor is stupid.
            wahhh its such stolen valor that i like to wear military surplus pants when i’m doing search & rescue and cutting down trees in the forest for strictly utilitarian purposes (cheap, will be shredded by blackberry bushes)

          The paradox with workwear is while anyone can wear it, it just doesnt look right on people who dont do manual labor or arent outdoorsmen. Its uncanny valley teir. So yea you can wear your mackinaw cruiser and work boots but it always looks like shit because not only are your clothes not broken in, but neither are you, that only felling trees 10 hours a day in the winter can bring about.

          The pendulum swings both ways.
          Fashion when it is strictly utilitarian is at its most boring.
          Fashion without authenticity is when it’s at its most cringe.

      Yes it is you poser. You are not a soldier nor have you served a single day in the military. Stop pathetically walking around pretending to be one.

          Yes it is. Throughout history, clothing were meant to signify your occupation, role, status, and contribution in society. They were all practically uniforms. You had to earn the right to wear them. There was symbolic meaning to everything you wore and the way you presented yourself.
          But in the degenerate modernist world in the name of "muh freedom" and "heck traditions" nothing really matters anymore. So it’s fashionable to dress like a soldier, miner, mechanic, carpenter and even a whore.

          >Maximum 85IQ to think wearing an M65 or something is "pretending to be a soldier"
          that’s why it became a fashion staple
          to look like a soldier

          ironically that’s a fashion model wearing a brand new jacket in the pic.
          does it really not make sense to you that something like the clothing a high end outfitter like filson makes would become popular in somewhere with weather like seattle? GQ loves calling us worst dress city in the world every year because you have to wear a rain shell to be outside half the time. its not like its a huge mystery how these things became fashion staples. honestly outside of the lumbersexual trend that happened for a while the only other guys i see wearing filson are hunters, other construction workers, and shit like that. i worked there for a while and saw a lot more guys like that than hipsters come in. granted we got both.

        just because you’re a jobless loser doesn’t mean everyone else here hasn’t picked up some tools and done some work at some point in their life

    Being stolen valor just makes it feel better. What are stupid tradies gonna do other than getting crippled at their shit jobs? What are cuck soldiers gonna do when I heck their wives while they’re getting blown to pieces in some desert in the middle of nowhere?

    lol I think we are safe from your tastes catching up for a while if this is what you are so detached from reality you think this is what people wear to work.

    I think if your worried about shit like this you’ve run out of real problems in your life and you just want to be mad about something.

          Do those people really exist or is it just an imaginary archetype? I know a bunch of programmers and IT workers and none of them wear heritage stuff. I also know a bunch of tradies and they don’t wear that stuff either.

    wearing athletic wear if you don’t exercise is stolen valor too
    and don’t wear a suit unless you’re an executive you don’t deserve the respect from perceived high status

    • Anonymous says:

      Executives hijacked suits. Before them, suits were a default outfit for any man who wanted to look civilized and presentable in public. And yes, athletic wear should be restricted to gyms and the field. Walking around in public wearing joggers and those shitty "breathable" polyester shirts when you’re a fatheck who hasn’t exercised a single day, is poser gayry as well.
