First in a series trying to clarify and describe different raver clothing styles. Also wanted to clear up where this blog is coming from This is more or less how I attempted to dress as a young (er) raver. By and large I NEVER see this style out on the dance floors anymore. You may have noticed but many of my other posts are inspired by this style. It is possible to find stuff nowadays […]
Hooray for making shit up as you go along. Just making days up will-nilly. Alright, the need for a custom blog design is becoming more apparent. Bare with me for a bit longer. Meanwhile, the onslaught of SWEARS continues. Yes, I think I pretty much have every pic of SWEARS currently on the internet, as well as many gleaned from years of ebay and a few too many hours on the Internet Wayback Machine. It […]

Would love one on the history of the Comfort Zone (there is an article on it’s current state, but only alludes to it’s checkered past). Despite having lived around the corner for 2 years and living in the Annex for most of 1999-2007, and been pretty ok with sketchy party situations, I never actually went […]

You can see similar structures in GPs Spring/Summer 2012 collection. You can Please visit the blog for […]

While Elsa Schiaparelli predated them by about 60 years with her monkey fur boots. But I doubt those ever made it to a rave. I’d like to know when the Jettys were first produced and if anything similar was made before. See also my SWEAR Alternative company profile [Ed.] Alexander Wang has a contemporary version. [Ed.] Just found […]
Sorry I’ve been phoning it in, tomorrow’s my last day before vacation. Looking forward to sleeping for pretty much the first time in 9 months. Also planning on spending a lot of time working on blog posts Meanwhile, back to SWEARS. Again with clownish shoes but i kinda love these. They could use a bit of a redesign but there’s the beginning awesome. Fuck, somebody should really do that *cough cough*. SWEAR Alternative company profile […]
