Wearing Hair

You and I both know this. The supply chain is super messed up. The way humans make clothing is deeply messed up. So should we just make garments made of human hair?

A very real question, with very real answers.

More Pockets

Plus Sizes

Plus-sized fashion seems to live in a separate trend cycle. There are different patterns, different cuts. And most notably, women?s shirts often have holes in their shoulders. And this separate plus-sized fashion universe reveals a lot about the way clothes are made and measured? and the way clothes dictate who is allowed to participate in public life.

This episode was made in collaboration with the show Weight For It. Links, images, and more at articlesofinterest.substack.com

The Corduroy Appreciation Club

A secret society. A secret tradition. And a cloth that somehow lends itself to ritual.

Paisley

Himanshu kept seeing paisley everywhere: from his home temple to his couch cushions to his mom?s pants. Some of these products were Indian but a lot weren?t. How did this pattern get embraced by the world?

Paper and Rubber

This is about two examples of cloth-alternatives. One that went extinct. And one that?s very much alive.

This story deals with sex and sexuality. But in a fun way!

Fashion Without Capitalism

In the 1980s, Budapest was not quite socialist and not quite capitalist, and there was one fashion designer who thrived in this moment.

This is the story of Tamás Király, an unusual artist from an unusual period of Hungarian history, both of which were unusually short-lived. Because Király was murdered in 2013.

Photos of Király and his designs are at https://articlesofinterest.substack.com/

The Black Fashion Museum

The tricky thing about fashion is that, in order to preserve its history, you need to preserve physical garments. And, alas, closet space is finite, cloth gets sun-bleached and eaten by moths, and Americans notoriously do not care about their fashion heritage. So this is why one woman decided to put a call out across the country and make a scrappy archive all by herself.

This story was reported by Enya Hennings. Pictures, details and more at articlesofinterest.substack.com

Prison Uniforms (with Ear Hustle)

Prison uniforms are not, in fact, uniform. There are so many types of clothes that are worn across different facilities? including ? some prisons that don?t have uniforms at all.

This episode is a special collaboration between Articles Of Interest and Ear Hustle, dropping on both of our feeds. For images of the Broad Arrow, and to see a prison without uniforms, go to articlesofinterest.substack.com

The Clueless Closet

Ever since 1995, a generation has been dreaming of Cher?s digital closet from the movie Clueless. So why don?t we have it yet? It?s not the technology. It?s a psychological problem with the way fashion works.

American Ivy: Chapter 6

As the 80s turns into the 90s, preppy is everywhere. All over the planet. In the United States AND Japan. And sure, preppy sort of morphs into business casual. But it also turns into something else. Something way more fashionable.

American Ivy: Chapter 5

Ralph Lauren ascends. And so does a slender little joke book that no one expected to be a colossal, massive bestseller. Just in time for the secret fashion revolution of the 1980s that no one ever talks about.

American Ivy: Chapter 3

The look of the elite somehow becomes the look for everyone. And as more and more people are taking on Ivy, it only becomes cooler and cooler. Which goes against everything I thought I knew about trends.

American Ivy: Chapter 2

So where does Ivy begin? The short answer: Princeton University. The long answer is a spiral that takes us from a 1940s Chinese prison camp, to the raucous party culture of 1920s London, to the docks of downtown New York City after The War of 1812.

A trend forecaster follows up on a trend report from 2016. A prominent fashion buyer tells me his trends for fall 2022. And I wonder why one particular trend, against all odds, seems to come back over and over again

American Ivy: Prologue

Articles of Interest is a show about what we wear. And for a long time, one particular look has come back in style again and again and again. Or maybe it never went away. Season 3 will get to the bottom of it.

12. Wedding Dresses

A wedding was once seen as a start of young adulthood. Now, a wedding has come to represent a crowning achievement -- a symbol that your whole life is together and you have accrued the time and space and resources to afford your ascent to another level of fulfillment. And there's no greater symbol for this day, and all the pressure it brings, than a white dress.

11. Diamonds

Diamonds represent value, in all its multiple meanings: values, as in ethics, and value as in actual price. But what are these rocks actually worth? The ethics and costs of diamond rings have shifted with society, from their artificial scarcity perpetuated by DeBeers to their artificial creation in labs.

10. Suits

Menswear can seem boring. If you look at any award show, most of the men are dressed in black pants and black jackets. This uniform design can be traced back to American Revolution, classical statuary, and one particular bloke bopping around downtown London way back in the 1770s.

9. Perfume

The world of high end perfume is surprisingly lucrative, considering that scent is often the most ignored of our senses. But one can't judge a scent solely by the brand and shape of the bottle. With the right amount of attention, perfume can be a key to a whole olfactory world.

8. Knockoffs

Brands hold immense sway over both consumers and the American legal system. Few know this as well as Dapper Dan, who went from street hustler to fashion impresario and has spent time on both sides of American trademark law.

7. A Fantasy of Fashion

In the wake of World War II, the government of France commissioned its most prominent designers to create a collection of miniature fashion dolls. It might seem like an odd thing to fund, but the fantasy of high fashion inspired hope in postwar Paris. These dolls also forever changed the curator who discovered them almost 40 years later, in a strange museum perched on a cliff in rural Washington state.

6. Punk Style

There is this myth that it?s frivolous or unproductive to care about how you look. Clothing and fashion get trivialized a lot. But think about who get associated with clothing and fashion: young people, women, queers and people of color ? groups of people who historically haven?t had a voice have expressed themselves on their bodies, through their style, their hair, their tattoos, their piercings and what they wear.

5. Blue Jeans

For the most part, we tend to keep our clothes relatively clean and avoid spills and rips and tears. But denim is so hard-wearing and hard-working that it just kind of amasses more and more signs of wear. So you can learn a lot from observing an old pair of blue jeans.

4. Hawaiian Shirts

There are a few ways to tell if you?re looking at an authentic, high-quality aloha shirt. If the pockets match the pattern, that?s a good sign, but it?s not everything. Much of understanding an aloha shirt is about paying attention to what is on the shirt itself. It?s about looking at the pattern to see the story it tells.

3. Pockets

Womenswear is littered with fake pockets that don?t open, or shallow pockets that can hardly hold more than a paperclip. If women?s clothes have pockets at all, they are often smaller and just fit less than men?s pockets do. And when we talk about pockets, we are talking about who has access to the tools they need. Who can walk through the world comfortably and securely?

2. Plaid

Lumberjacks wore plaid. Punks wore plaid mini skirts. The Beach Boys used to be called the Pendletones, and they wore plaid with their surfboards. Lots of different groups have adopted the pattern over the course of the 20th century, but if we want to explore how this pattern proliferated, we?ve got to go to Scotland.

1. Kids' Clothes

Clothes are records of the bodies we?ve lived in. Think of the old sweater that you used to have that?s just not your style anymore, or the jeans that just aren?t your size anymore. We are like snakes who shed our skins and grow new ones as we age. And it all starts in the kids? department.
