. . . is the correct answer (IMHO).

Too much time wasted in trying to be authentic when what that actually means is not real but copied, plagiarised, imitated or interpreted to fit into a particular (current) lifestyle and/or culture - yet at the same time disparaging anything that seems more blatant in doing the same.


Duke- ?? You would rather denim brands like Warehouse, FW, SC, ect spend less time trying to produce an authentic reproduction? I don't get it.

But please my point was not authenticity but... take a look at say this woman.


Is she^ a "woman in workwear" or is she a model who has been dressed by a stylist?.
Who actually put the wear into that type3 or those jeans? I don't think it was her.
That was my point and prolouxsie has kindly explained her reasons.

Loving this waxed Schott jacket that Ponytail Journal posted today—if anyone sees it available online let me know. I think it's a men's jacket.

Proulxsie, I remember you posting pics from an etsy shop that sold linen clothing for women? Do you remember the name of the shop? I think they are UK based

No sir, I hope those brands, and many others, continue and prosper.

I just hope there are more folks buying them but taking themselves less seriously (recalling that 'nothing but clothes' discussion).

We don't live in some other era despite how hard we cling to romantic aspirations - those selfsame aspirations that the aforementioned brands use to promote and hype (yet another old debate) their products to fit into that lifestyle we create to accommodate the marketing we claim to despise.

It's not genuine - it's a notion. But it's something we all choose - both knowingly and unwittingly by parts.

Even the clothes that you and I prefer were once fashion . . . and we're 'styled'.

There's a small square in Glasgow (Royal Exchange Square where it's traditional for the statue of the Duke of Wellington to wear a traffic cone on his head) that for a while was popular for dozens upon dozens of goths to hang out. My niece was one. She took a lot of time to put on make up and dress to be different - a very serious business. I couldn't spot her in the throng - everyone looked the same. And she was mightily pissed when I stupidly mentioned that . . .

The '09 LVC lookbook had some very well styled women's stuff:







A few more at the (lamentably deceased) Repeat to Fade blog:

I make things out of leather.

Some classic shots taken from that Shorpy site.  The first one isn't necessarily workwear, maybe more adventure wear?  I'm curious what a 1920s woman would keep in that hip pocket on her skirt.




roots in the desert.

An extra spark plug of course.
