There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.  

No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).

Exactly. As an American living in the UK for the sixth straight year, I was thinking exactly this, Tessa!

Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I m definitely loving the information.

Fifty years ago, on 18 March 1965, Soviet astronaut Alexei Leonov took the first space walk. Listen to Rob and Neil describing the struggles of that ground-breaking space mission whilst explaining some related vocabulary.

James Reinhart spent months trying to get somebody, anybody, to invest in his idea: an online clothing exchange for women and kids.

 
OMG! This is sooo funny! I m in seattle and no one knows how to dress anymore. We make fun of those women who wear velour track suits but is it any better to go to Starbucks all decked out in REI?  

Ageing, he thought, comes about because this developmental programme, this constant change, never turns off. From birth until puberty, change is crucial: we need it to grow and mature. After we ve matured, however, our adult bodies don t need change, but rather maintenance. If you ve built the perfect house, you would want to stop adding bricks at a certain point, Walker says. When you ve built a perfect body, you d want to stop screwing around with it. But that s not how evolution works. Because natural selection cannot influence traits that show up after we have passed on our genes, we never evolved a stop switch for development, Walker says. So we keep adding bricks to the house. At first this doesn t cause much damage a sagging roof here, a broken window there. But eventually the foundation can t sustain the additions, and the house topples. This, Walker says, is ageing.

They're attracting all the investor interest because each company is trying to fill a void left by the big online retail incumbents. Though Amazon is deeply entrenched in almost every product category in e-commerce, and eBay rules resale, many consider fashion their most vulnerable segment, whether new or used. Amazon and eBay thrive as near-boundless vending machines, where customers search for anything and everything. Fashion is built on meticulous curation.

From jogging at the park to tackling difficult yoga poses, the stretch fabric slenderizes your figure by holding everything in place while effortlessly moving with your body.

That s because there are too many dipshits on the roads who would not see us otherwise. Of course, there is always the assclown who almost kills me, then tells me: I didn t see you. I usually reply that they should look past their nose.  

School leaders say some of the children are going to class with their shoes duct-taped together or wearing clothes which no longer fit them.

To each his (or her) own. Everyone has his or her own preferences. Personally, I use a clothesline much of the time in summer, but often toss those clothes into the dryer just to fluff them. Oh, that tends to get the beetles out, too. No fun finding a beetle in your undies.

You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.

What about non-white people who wear technical clothing eh? I m 1/2 yellow and 1/2 white and I wear a ridiculous amount of technical clothing. Although I always want to go camping, I m not so stupid as to think my buddy s going to call an impromptu session of hiking and paddling. I for one wear technical clothing because I m a paranoid bastard. When those zombies come, you want to be hunkered down in a makeshift shanty dressed in cotton, that retains water and chills you when the temperature drops? I think I ll stick with my technical clothing. I may look like a douche, but damn yo, how many hipsters look like douches and are just gonna be eaten by zombies because they can t run in their drainpipe jeans? Sheeit yo, it ain t just white people wearing clothing that works, that in itself is degrading to people of other shades. What, because I m 1/2 Chinese I can t be (paranoia-fuelled) practical? C mon!!

Dating to 1905, this glorious flower-strewn scene of summery bliss created by Wilhelm von Gloeden was sold as a postcard (the publisher’s initials AE a co-incidental match for this very blog!). A fine souvenir for the traveller to treasure, or perhaps a treat to send home to a friend who shared the same appreciation of aesthetic beauty and male beauty combined!

It has been an awfully long time since I shared a photograph of Ange Camilli, 1st prize winner in an early physical beauty contest (later to become the body building still with us today). Published - sadly all censored - as a set of postcards circa 1920, by Alfred Noyer of Paris.

Once again I must appeal to my widespread and knowledgeable readers, to beg a translation for the handwritten message squeezed into the pale part of this 1907 postcard - all I know is that I very much like the model poised so elegantly atop this annotated block!

[edit] I was very quickly provided with exactly what I wished for, my thanks to the helpful gent who sent the following :
As far as I understand the inscription on your photo is in Bulgarian:
Андрей, Честитъ ти именъ день, за много години. Пожеа ваме Ви щастие и успехъ. Андрей, тази картичка е подобна на твоята, наято ми прати, за имениятъ ми день. Приеметъ поздравъ отъ ?Всички ни Пеша.
This card is send to a certain Andrej on his name day. The sender(s?) wish him happiness and success. They also say that the picture reminded them of him.

A beautiful model, lost in his own quiet thoughts, in this postcard published by Alfred Noyer of Paris, toward the end of the 1910s, or into the early 1920s. We can see another shot of this remarkably handsome man here.

What a pretty postcard to send from a stay in the Sicilian coastal town of Taormina; a handsome young man to share with admirers of a fine male form back home. Attributed to variously von Gloeden and publishers Lehnert & Landrock, but a gorgeous model with a charming subtle smile and bewitching eyes, whoever captured him on camera.

Two different copies of the same photograph, published as postcards by Alfred Noyer of Paris, in the 1910s or ‘20s. A great part of the appeal in these pictures is their age, all the signs of wear & tear and the fading effects of time are a wonderful reminder of the years that have passed, all the places the prints have been kept - was each individual copy treasured and passed on with care; or forgotten, only to surface later for a whole new audience to appreciate.

The exquisite Ange Camilli, first prize winner of an early bodybuilding contest in France - probably c1920 from the quality of the photograph and style of his hair. Images from this glorious set are often incorrectly dated to 1863, because of the AN Paris 63 in the lower right - but this refers to publisher Alfred Noyer and his numbered registration of patent on the set.

A 1905 postcard by Wilhelm von Gloeden, beautiful in its tones of hazy blue, and the oh-so-handsome model bedecked with a wreath of laurel leaves. The image is, in fact, cropped from a larger photograph, one of a set taken some time between 1895 and 1898 at Monte Ziretto, Taormina. The full scene, with a second young man almost entirely trimmed out of this postcard version, can be seen here.

One more submission from frequent contributor Alan : when I first saw this remarkably modern-looking portrait I wasn’t certain of its authenticity - many a present-day photoshoot has been creatively edited to appear weathered and old - but it is indeed genuine. Taken in Tunisia circa 1910, by Rudolf Lehnert, this image and others like it were to find fame when published in the form of postcards, from 1924 onwards.
