I really like Instagram (FOLLOW ME OR DIE IN IGNOMINY). It's much like other social media platforms, insofar as you share stuff in order to gain the explicit approval of your peers, while fostering an implicit sense of superiority in yourself. It's also not much like other social media platforms, insofar as less than 50% of the posts you see are blatantly racist and/or angry about racism. One of the best things about the 'Gram is stumbling upon small fashion brands that you might have otherwise missed. Enter Evan Kinori, whose name you should learn now, so in future you can be all "Yes, I'm very familiar with Evan's work" to your friends, after he takes over the world. He's actually the dude model in the pictures above, nonchalantly rocking his lounge shirt and four pocket pant. Both are made from selvedge 2x1 twills from Japan (8oz and 10oz respectively), which one might still reasonably call denim without earning a corrective slap. Denim-nerdage aside, these are downright beautiful clothes. Like look-around-your-apartment-for-stuff-to-pawn beautiful. Like cut-out-your-own-kidney-and-sell-it-on-the-black-market beautiful. So follow Evan on Instagram, buy his clothes, and generally win at life. I have to go fill up my bathtub with ice now.
