It's cutting season and as cutting season goes, you want to peacock a little of what you've been working hard on because underneath that dadbod is a man yearning to sport a fitted tank top while inconspicuously flexing, but really he's reaching for canned tuna.
Please don't call it a wife-beater.

I call it premature-shortulation. Or just being Canadian.

The Internet is confounded by a dichotomy right now and is trying to grasp a happy medium. Non-Internet user and authentic cool girl Chloe Sevigny is interviewed by militant Internet user Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller in the latest issue of The Edit. On thing they have in common is their love of culottes and individuality through clothes.

Imran Amed, the founder of The Business of Fashion would like to formally get the discussion flowing on a issue that is facing the fashion industry: sustainability. With the increasing demand of designers forced to spew a few collections a year (resort, pre-spring, courture, fall, etc) and fast fashion retailers have even more pressure to release new clothes weekly, if not daily, then what is our responsibility as the consumer? The fashion industry?
What got me interested about this sustainability dialogue is a quote by Amed in Dansk magazine who he quotes, but doesn't identify who these industry people are, but regardless he purports that "According to some people, fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world."

Sex is important to you, I get it, blue balls are terrible and unspeakable. However, now that you know the difference between wool and acrylic, blouse and shirt, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, you should offer her educated sartorial advice rather than the banal response of: "yeah, it looks good".

If I learned anything from my advertising class from university, it's that the women's market is over-saturated (look what happened to Marc by Marc Jacobs recently) and the men's market is beginning to grow exponentially and readers, that means money.
