Fashion trends from my old man’s point of view

There are not so many people left alive who remember the thrill and respect caused by Adidas tracksuits on the pumped-up figures of dashing young men with very short haircuts. Three-striped stripes from afar denoted a man who was quarrelsome and often armed, which means he was already worthy of being skipped ahead of the queue. But those wild times of full-length tombstones with the keys to their beloved Mercedes have sunk into oblivion (that’s where they go).

I was already beginning to harbor the illusion that the tracksuit will move back to where it belongs – to the sports field. My illusions, alas, were shattered. The further, the more in the mass consciousness of people the thought that night pajamas is quite a suitable outfit for itself: in a feast, and in the world, and in kind people.

Of course, I am a well-known retrograde, but I will remind you of the history of the issue. Once upon a time, in those distant times, when girls and boys did not look the same, there was such a thing as clothing for sports. These are special elastic pants or leggings with a light jacket. They were sewn from jersey in order to stretch and not hinder the movements of athletes.

And now a little time has passed, the athletes have somewhat lost their sportiness, but pouted their lips with a duck … and, voila, a new trend was born!

Two years of total remoteness removed the shyness in matters of clothing even from such a conservative branch of human life as a business. Broadcasting from the stage of respectable business forums in pajamas has ceased to be considered bad manners.

The new leader of our beloved Zen, I am sure, is an extremely athletic person. This, in fact, is evidenced by his clothes. On the last offline Zen Monday.
And if Steve Jobs, who introduced the fashion to appear at business meetings in casual clothes, even bothered to put on jeans, albeit with a turtleneck, then modern IT geniuses do not strain so much and consider this an impermissible constraint on their freedom-loving creative bodies. Knitted hoodies and sneakers are quickly and surely becoming the new business uniform.

I woke up in the morning – and already in trend. Convenient! (photo from the Internet)

I will not say that this is bad (as, incidentally, and argue otherwise). But recently, making a voyage to expensive resorts, such as Sochi’s Rosa Khutor, I hoped to gawk at luxurious ladies and dapper men, imbued, so to speak, with the classic spirit of Dolce Vita, since such an opportunity presented itself. Because I usually live in the opposite direction from Barvikha Luxury Village. But what I saw was more like a walk in a kindergarten nursery group.

Moreover, the dress code in restaurants has disappeared. From the word in general.

No, as a knitter and yarn manufacturer, this is all on hand, because it legalizes knitted clothes for wearing absolutely everywhere. But as an expert in the field of fashion and style, I cannot help but feel sad: the appearance of a person in general and clothing in particular is an important source of non-verbal information and part of the communication process. The richer (in the sense of more varied), the style and purpose of items of clothing in a person’s wardrobe, the thinner and more diverse he can convey information about himself to the world. Having put on a romantic dress, a woman becomes a mystery, a knitted blouse – a close and dear grandmother, a business jacket with a pencil skirt – a business lady, a leopard dress – a vamp woman … you can continue to describe these metamorphoses of a female image endlessly.

And how boring it is when a woman from morning till night remains the only one – a shapeless knitted cocoon in a tracksuit! This also applies to men!

Woman is a mystery of our time. It’s pretty easy to guess, as you understood from the location.

I confess that with a certain amount of gloating I look at what a frantic pace jersey is killing sewing skill. But once upon a time, in the nineties, at the institute “sewing machines” looked down on us, “knitwear”, as if we were poor relatives. It was believed that they had, wow, High Sewing, and we are good for knitting socks, and for sharpening men’s cotton. Oh well. The one who laughs last laughs well. Where are your Fashion Houses? Are your ateliers custom tailoring?

They all sew from knitted fabric! And mainly in China, which has never been a favorite of high fashion, but catches trends like a cat and a mouse, right on the fly.
