Redditor daou0782 explains the difference between a $450 black t-shirt from Rick Owens and a $5 black t-shirt from Hanes, discusses the importance of details, and talks about how there are two ways to appreciate clothing: clothes as means-to-an-end, and clothes as an end in itself. I don’t wear long, drapey, black clothes, and wouldn’t pay $450 for a t-shirt, but daou0782’s post is pretty interesting and sensible.
(Note, this is the third Rick Owens post at Put This On in the last two weeks, which is kind of strange.)
someone who gets it.

I WAS THERE. I was sitting right there. Don’t let her tell you anything less. She won’t remember anyways. Don’t get me wrong, she was good to me…
I had you in my hands before you could even know it. I fought for you and somewhere in between my world and yours I still fight for you. I don’t think she knew what you meant to me. I cried a thousand tears and screamed to the heavens so you could hear me. At times you were all I had. I could show you the world but you were right there. If you ever get to face the world just know that I wanted you to go head on. Be fearless. I made it through, and you can too. Don’t ever let anybody tell you you can’t be something. Don’t ever let anybody or anything put you in a box. What you see, all of that, that’s for you. If you don’t have it you take it. And if you don’t see something you want, you make it. Create and inspire. Love and lust. Fail and succeed. Be a free soul. Let me be your Polaris when you are lost. Let me teach you my failures for I cannot teach you how to succeed. Just don’t give up. Keep your head up. I’ll be there every step of your journey…And If you never get to see my face, just know that I was a soldier, and I fought for you.
“There is more to a boy than what his mother sees. There is more to a boy then what his father dreams. Inside every boy lies a heart that beats. And sometimes it screams, refusing to take defeat. And sometimes his father’s dreams aren’t big enough, and sometimes his mother’s vision isn’t long enough. And sometimes the boy has to dream his own dreams and break through the clouds with his own sunbeams.”

Made it out to The Jetty. 8km return. Super windy but well worth it. One of the best sunsets I’ve seen.

The new “Cosmos” might be called the Large Hadron Collider of pop science: expensive, splashy and ambitious. After a series of special showings this week, including one at the White House, it will be shown in 170 countries and 45 languages, on Fox and on the National Geographic Channel — the largest global opening ever for a television series, according to Ann Druyan, Dr. Sagan’s widow and his collaborator on the original “Cosmos,” who is an executive producer and a writer and director of the new series.
I’m not going to pretend to be neutral here. I hope it succeeds and that everyone watches it, not just because I have known Ms. Druyan and admired Dr. Tyson for years, but because we all need a unifying dose of curiosity and wonder.
“Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” comes at a critical moment for a society that is increasingly fragmented.
If we are going to decide big issues, like eating genetically modified food, fracking for natural gas, responding to the prospect of drastic climate change, exploring space or engaging in ambitious science research, we are going to have to start from some common experience.
As Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the longtime senator from New York, once said, everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts. So where are we going to get them?
In science, as in other areas of our culture, there is no dearth of voices, but are we paying attention? In the new New Age, it’s all about which cable channels you watch or whom you follow on Twitter.
We could use a national conversation that is not about scandal or sports. If everybody watches the new “Cosmos,” we can talk about it the way we once argued about “The Sopranos” every Monday morning.

Sagan and Tyson are dope as fuck. The world needs more of this.
