Clothing an Ecological Hazard? As If!

***

What’s this about eco-friendly clothing options, now? Clothing has become a landfill concern, like plastic bags and broken electronics? That’s crazy talk.

If clothing is an ecology concern, then the real root of the problem is our old frenemy, the economy. Long ago, someone wove an elegant spell which convinced countless souls to control the world through the demand of money in exchange for goods and services. Before long, people wouldn’t lift a finger without coin in hand. You see traces of that in rebellious children who don’t help their elders unless they are paid to do it; allowances, wages and such rubbish.

But, what puts such thoughts in someone’s head? Are adults to blame for passing it on to their children? Sure, parents tell their children they cannot have something unless/until they get a job and buy it themselves. That happens.

What is more common and suffocating, though, is the omnipresence of influencial media. Whether it’s the “old” way of jabbing your cranium with TV and radio commercials or the “new” mutation of pop-ups and the like on everything Windows-fed or Apple-based. I don’t own one myself, but I would not be surprised if someone had a watch-like device they wore on their wrist that could fire an image, a slogan, a salespitch a motivational message to do something financially-stimulating, simply because the technology we trust is powered by the economical machine.

There was a time when inventors invented things and struggled to make them last. Then, as their talents improved, inventions became durable marvels. But, some dark soul with financial aspirations, some golden-touch entity said, “Make it breakable so they will buy more.” And, if that’s not enough, the sales pitches have been non-stop efforts trying to convince you that new is better than old (even if a place called OLD Navy continues to thrive in its own way), that today is better than yesterday. Rubbish.

Back to the topic at hand.

Ecological concern over clothing? Try less impulse shopping. You might have to turn down the pop-culture, song-of-the-season commercialism and focus on necessity, on sustainable comfort versus temporary pleasure. Try lowering prices on cheaply made crap and charging price for genuine quality that you can guarantee to endure or replace, at least, until your value is proven. Because, these days, the brands that boast reputation have fallen so far from their old standards. I used to count on Jansport backpacks for lasting an eternity. I haven’t owned or bought one, in a while. Do they still hold up to their good name? I wonder.

Renting clothing? Can you believe there is such a thing? I can understand celebrities renting dresses or suits for some award show/party. But, everyday folks renting what they wear more…regularly? No way. No thanks. If I am renting clothes, I might as well consider myself a prisoner working in a laundry room for hundreds of other lost souls. I just can’t do it. I will not wear used clothing, mainly because it is my strange belief that used comes with history. And, I don’t want a stranger’s history attached to my body. It would be like wearing the suit of a man buried just last week. Sick. I can’t and won’t do it. And, I seriously doubt my decision will have any ecological impact worse than 98 percent of the human population.

If you want the honest truth, I wear my clothes until they pretty much bust. As of right now, I am due for a new wardrobe because most of my clothes…at least, the clothes I wear regularly, casually, are showing signs of decay. They’ve become senior attirizens and cannot be kept alive on deceptive drugs and poor caregiving. I am going to miss these clothes when I finally have to dismiss them from active use. I don’t know what will become of them, either. But, I really don’t care to think of some less fortunate soul wearing my rags.

So, really, is this an issue? Clothes in landfills, swallowing up Earth-space that we just cannot spare? Has the world gotten so lazy and careless that we have to be so concerned about every thing we do and use? Water, land, air… Have we gone so far to misuse our precious resources? Are we worse off than the days of excess hairspray and fossil-fuel emissions? Oh, wait, that’s still going on; isn’t it? This is just a new phase of pitching the same cry for help.

And, if clothes in landfills are a concern, then maybe we all need to stop wearing clothes and just start living in the nude in the woods and wherever we feel fit. Clothing has been around a very long time. I have never read of a past stage in human civilization that had a problem with such rubbish. If it is our present-day concern, then I put full blame on the economy and all of the excessive push for impulse shopping. That, dear fellow humans, is the enemy. Not the shirts on your backs.

I’ll give what I heard on TV one point. They said maybe people need to stop looking at shopping (for clothes) as a pasttime. Indeed. Well said.

[But, you want to know what’s a bigger landfill concern than clothing? Try about a million new toys people are trying to put up for sale, toys that often sound and look alike and are made of the smallest plastic parts, which are sure to become a hazard before they get famous. And, the ads just keep coming and vanishing; letting me know the toy didn’t last and is probably being added to a landfill as another takes its place. Yeah; let’s talk about the excessive use of plastic for merchandising. And, let’s knock on Disney’s doors and tell them to keep the noise down, because they’re motivating others to get their 15 seconds of fame and 100 years of landfill space. How can any kid truly love any of these toys that seem lacking in inspiration, lacking in repeat use/fun and lacking in quality to last? These are not beloved characters from historical stories like Archie and Marvel comics. Although, now that Disney has taken the reins of Marvel merchandising, that’s gotten out of hand, too.]

Yet, I know some older folks who seem to have nothing else to fill their days. I dealt with them as customers. I deal with them as family. They are lost for what to do with their less able selves. So, they turn to “bumming” just to “get out of the house for a while.” It’s kinda sick; ya know? It’s a sickness, and it’s sad.

Buy clothes that will endure and satisfy you for a long time, not just one day. Wear those clothes and care for them like children. Get the most out of your clothes, and your dollar, and you won’t likely have to worry about them harming your environment.

Fashions Signaling The World’s End?

***

When Target commercials are worse than Old Navy commercials, I fear the world (of fashion) coming to an end.  Seriously, I don’t expect much from a retailer like Target.  I know they are not a “high-end” clothing store, but they used to have options I…well, liked.  But, some years after they began airing ads with trendy songs-of-the-summer and montages of jagged shifting imagery, and years after certain feature fashion designers started boasting their lines at the stores, Target seem to have lost their money-lovin’ minds.  I used to say the same about Old Navy.  I used to think Target put Old Navy on the endangered shopping list.  Now, it seems things have shifted.   And, that really scares me.  A place with OLD in its name showing clothes better than what you can get at what used to be a favored department store.  Sad times, indeed.

What am I talking about?  What is so bad at Target?  Let me put it as clearly as I can, in my personal opinion, mind you.  I don’t like pastels.  I detest melon orange and shades of aqua-marine/sea foam/turquoise, even if the last one is said to be lucky for Sagittarius.  I am tired of the same old striped crap that looks like the bottom of the wallpaper or card stock barrel.  I am tired of pants too tight for my man parts, apparently designed by gay folks looking to score some action in the rear…just sayin’.  And, in general, as I say again and again, I am astounded there aren’t more options and that, it seems, no one cares to design or make quality men’s clothing that isn’t cheaply screen-printed tees and sloppy pants or costly suit-and-tie combos that do nothing outside of an elitist boardroom or convention event.  It seems I will have to scrounge around the shady import websites, these “pop-up” outlet malls of the Far and Middle east, and pay ridiculous shipping, no doubt, to get anything more appealing to my artistic and heterosexual senses.

As if shopping for men’s clothes isn’t bad enough, these days.

Vent complete.

Women’s Clothing Needs to Grow Up, Again

****

Call me old-fashioned–though “my kind” doesn’t exactly like the word “old” to be attached to anything personal–but I have an issue with some articles of modern women’s clothing; namely skirts and some of the dresses you may see on the red carpets of countless, excessive and potentially quite pointless award shows. [But, I’ll save my “beef” with award shows for another post.]

I flip through the TV channels and come across some old…really old…I’m talking black-and-white…show that features women of the “Wild West” in long dresses and skirts that dance around their ankles; and I feel generally good about these women. There’s a reassuring warmth and appealing feminine energy about them. They’re fragile but enduring. And, some can be quite spirited, standing up for themselves when confronted by hostile men. ‘Nothing wrong with that. But, who would wear such outfits these days? And, I don’t mean just for costume parties, photo booths or role-playing games.

But, this isn’t new news. So, why am I bothering to say anything? I’m the Writingbolt. And, I write these pieces when the mood strikes, like lightning. [Insert lightning-infused header image and audio/visual effects.]

In short, too many current skirts (and some dresses) are far too revealing and short; so short that they’ve lost my interest. In fact, I think they’re rather annoying, impractical and hazardous.

[MMMMaybe I have reached “that age.” Even I sound old to myself. Yet, even when I was younger, I never saw a model I liked in such tasteless outfits. And, if she posed in some skimpy lingerie in some lewd or forced way, I didn’t drool. The Rachel H., Rebecca R. and Kathy I. I liked had more class, even when wearing lingerie.]

I don’t know when this trend started. But, I am inclined to guess the mid-1990s, when a certain anime character (I quickly grew to favor) featured an atypical short skirt as part of her civilian uniform instead of a Barbie-doll paper-cut-out dress with some weird design on the front, as seen in other incarnations and on Nancy O’Dell on a regular ET basis. It’s the only thing about the character’s appearance…other than maybe the odd way her nose and lips are drawn, as if she has no lips…that bugs me. If the short skirt was a pair of shorts, I wouldn’t mind.

But, it’s not just in anime, anymore. I see it everywhere, including countless outfits with those poor excuses for thin belts hugging the boobs and leaving some rippling tree skirt to cover the rest. [Are we seriously passing “baby doll” lingerie and shower curtains as everyday wear?] It’s being shoved down our throats. Just as women are striving for more respect and equality, their clothing is not respecting THEM. [And, several (not all) starlets of “Hollywood” and the music industry are possibly the worst…and not just the ones under the age of 30.]

Or, how about the dress that has a horribly cut neckline that plunges beyond the sexy V-shape plunge to the navel like some weird vest? That’s not a peplos (a really old Greek style of dress, for anyone who has no clue). That’s a pep-loss! Do you honestly feel content wearing such clothes…or did someone slap them on you to make a buck and turn you into their NASCAR billboard? Isn’t it about time women, even the “stars,” started making their own clothing choices and giving the photo barrages a bit more variety, instead of looking like deer caught in the headlights with their pants down? [I’m just so tempted to go on a rant about award shows. Grrr!]

On most women–who do NOT have enough breast to call them chickens–this is not the least bit attractive or flattering. It’s like an invitation to assault them. OPEN HERE TO GET LUCKY; BUT GOOD LUCK ENJOYING THE SCRAPPY CONTENTS. Though, I am sure most women who wear these dresses are crying, “Please, think of me and tell me I’m still popular and pretty. I don’t want to be left out of the party…even though other women are dressed differently and, thus, this shouldn’t be a concern. So, WHY, just for one night, am I wearing enough money to fill a Macy’s department store when I’d rather be lounging in something else…just to add one more rather pointless trophy to a shelf few get to see?”

[Or, do those awards work like stats in professional sports? Do you get a better shot at the next “gig” by flashing some gold or finely cut glass? Will your talent be ignored in favor of someone younger who grabbed two awards when you only got nominated? How sad is that?]

If men started wearing vests with nothing underneath, just boxer shorts or even flannel pajamas as day clothes and/or business attire, would they be as respected? Would they have as much sway over women? Maybe those who have something to show off. But, what about all the men with “body image” inhibitions (including yours truly)? It would be a social crisis of e-pectoral proportions! [See what I did there?]

Now, ladies, if you are lucky enough to be wise to the “legging” trend, you might get away with pairing a set with one of these short-short skirts/dresses…you might. The right color and fabric combo could be distracting, comfortable and sufficiently protective. But, if there is ANY chance of exposing undergarments? No go. Return to retailer.

At a time when more and more girls and women are coming up in cases of mistreatment (which is putting it lightly), do we really want to dress them in clothes that not just attract corrupt predators but do nothing to make them feel protected and comfortable?

[Ths may just be my opinion…and I am well aware of how futile such rants may be in an ever-expanding sea of opinionated, anti-social hermits being sucked into some cyber-universe while robots replace them…but if you are comfortable going about your day in a “babydoll” outfit, do you like sexual harrassment for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Are you so starved for compliments that you think such a skimpy outfit will do no harm? If I had a part of my body I wanted to show off, even I know accentuating it would be like playing with fire. Can you imagine a man boasting his “manhood” by wearing something that showcased it as casual or even business attire?]

If you disagree, tell me exactly how such daring garments are respectful to women? Flattering? Protective? Comforting?

So many are trying desperately to be trendsetters or getting caught up in what they think is a trend that there’s this ugly slaughter-house effect stinking up media sources without giving any viewer something realistic to emulate. [Do NOT give me that crap about how you can get close to the red-carpet looks with similar pieces at lower prices. Just shut up.]

[And, I am sure plenty would agree the “photo barrages” need to stop, too. It’s really getting old and not helping anyone other than those who make a buck off the photos.]

Ladies? You deserve better.

[And, no, the everything-elastic trend I am noticing on the rise with those who do not get much camera attention, is not necessarily the solution. It’s like me excusing sweats as casual wear, and I am more than eager to come up with better men’s fashion options…just low on ideas for how to adequately design and make them.]

Are you just going to sit there and accept this? I sure hope not.

Fashion designers and their distributors, you don’t have to go petticoat. But, please, correct this mistake. Bring back longer skirts, knee socks and dresses that only reveal a small portion of the upper body above the bustline. And, put belts where they belong…around the waist (not the “underwire”). Women don’t need to look like choked napkins. I will thank you by adequately servicing those who follow these guidelines. Those who stick with the too-short and choking-belt outfits will eventually lose my respect, especially if they think they can hold any authority over me.

In short, like getting more flies with honey versus vinegar, women, you’ll get more from me by wearing less-revealing attire. I’m giving you a personal pass to protect your goods by draping them in more fabrics and styles than are currently being “pressed” as “amazing.” Comfort and protection don’t have to be lazy, loose and/or unflattering.

And, though it has little to nothing to do with the main topic of this post, my fellow heterosexual (not gay, not LGBT-and-the-rest-of-alphabet, not a-sexual or any other variant who thinks shades of turquoise, seafoam green, pink and orange are the only colors men should be wearing with hideous striped designs) men, I am pounding my brain to come up with some clothing options for us. But, even if I had some ideas, I have no idea how to put them into production. I’d appreciate some help.

Untied Day Art, Posters, Etc.

*****

Here will be my initial gallery space for Untied Day materials, including explanation and simple flyers/ads you can distribute as you please to spread the idea.  If more come into creation, I’ll add them when I can.  The 900 pt square ones, I think, make nice (car) window decals and/or napkins.

Let me know which you favor and what could be improved.  If you have any to submit yourself, you can post on your own space with a link to this space (and leave a comment below to connect readers here to that space).  Or, you can send them to my mailbox (or discuss sending them, beforehand).

If you’re a lil foggy on what this is all about, be sure to seek out my previous post on the new holiday (conception).  There you’ll find screen-printing and coloring page versions of the logo and all the details I painstakingly composed in an effort to make single, widowed and divorced folks just as happy as anyone who celebrates romantic holidays like Valentine’s and Dragobete.  Untied Day is one day that takes place between those two, on a day noted by a 2 and a 1.  Run with that concept as far as you feel able.  [Yes, I put some “riddle-me” thought into this.]

Untied Day: A NEW Holiday for Singles to Represent and Get to Know Each Other

*****

On February 21st, if you are single, widowed or recently divorced, feel free to celebrate…

UNTIED DAY
(c) (R) AP 2017

How many of you are single and sick of Valentine’s Day and its cousins, including Dragobete? How many of you are tired of worrying about what gift to get someone you like/love, what greeting card will make that someone happy or forgetting one more holiday date just to end up in the doghouse with your significant other? And, how many of you are walking around, looking for love but not keen on online dating sites or singles “bars?”

Wouldn’t you like to go out and know who is single, looking for love or interested in something else, just like you? Wouldn’t you like a sign that tells you more about the person you meet out there? Well, have I got the holiday cure for you.

On Untied Day, anyone who is without a paired heart on Valentine’s Day or a lock on Dragobete can be themselves and let others know a little (or a lot) about who they are. There is no need for worrying about getting a gift, how much you spend, forgetting something that happened one or fifty years ago or being late for a date.

————–

WHAT TO WEAR:

A) A loose tie or ribbon, draped loosely over the shoulders/around the neck. [IE An untied business tie for a man or a hair ribbon for a woman.] If you are capable of wearing more than one ribbon at a time (to display a variety of interests/opinions), more power to you.

AND/OR

B) An Untied Day shirt/patch** with the appropriate color(s).

AND/OR

C) Represent your personality/tastes/interests with accessories and/or color/pattern choices (or wear what you happen to have and take your chances on explaining to curious individuals why you dressed that way). You could even substitute an Untied Day shirt/patch** with one that features an image or message that represents you, something you may already have stashed away somewhere.

**Currently, there are none in print/production. So, for now, you can simply print/reproduce the logo (a ribbon fused with a dress tie in the shape of the letters UNT) at your own expense, provided you give credit to yours truly. [I did come up with the design and the holiday name, after all.] For now, the idea of the holiday may be nothing more than something “trending” if it will be. But, I aspire to fashion tees, hoodies, tanks, sleeveless turtlenecks and camisoles as well as a variety of patches/badges.

————–

Suggested accessory #1: If you want to go one step further, get yourself a good and sticky nametag (or, if you prefer, a pin-on, clip-on or magnetic type), one that either has the words or upon which you can write this message:

HI. I AM ____.

And, in that blank, I want you to put either your first name or a word that best describes you. [IE HI. I AM Fred. HI. I AM silly. HI. I AM frank. HI. I AM shy.] Just don’t put a word like “dependable” or “trustworthy” because you’d have to work harder than most to prove it.

Put the nametag on one side of your (Untied Day) shirt. If nothing else, it helps clarify your “untie” of choice.

————–

The following are suggestive color/pattern choices which you may apply to your choice of Untied accessories. The point is to represent yourself so you don’t have to explain everything to interested/potential mates. If you don’t agree with these explanations, feel free to explain yourself when approached/asked.

COLORS:

BLACK = Strictly business, not looking for romance/a relationship. You are single and okay with it. And, if you are looking for a partner, it’s only for business/work. You’re hiring.

WHITE = Virgin. [You gotta be quite brave to represent this, these days.]

BABY BLUE = You have a son or sons. [For greater accuracy, wear one logo for each child.]

PINK = You have a daughter or daughters. [For greater accuracy, wear one logo for each child.]

GREEN = Newly single; you just got out of a relationship or are new to dating. [Be sure to represent any other factor of that status, including past sexual relationships and children.]

BLUE (any pure blue other than baby blue) = A very emotional person; sensitive. Possibly coping with depression. A sign of caution to potential partners; you need to be handled with care. You might also be gentle with others.

RED = Aggressive; an avid hunter. You have limited patience and are not afraid to admit it. Stop. Don’t bother asking ME a question; I’ll come to you.

YELLOW = Cautious or too shy to say hi or ask someone out, at the moment. You need someone to approach you, first. [At least we know you’re not hostile or superficial. Right?]

ORANGE = The hands-on/tactile type who don’t mind getting their hands dirty. In terms of dating/relationships, you are someone who prefers holding hands, hugging and physically laboring to show you care. [Compare with PURPLE.]

PURPLE = The intellectual/intuitive type who like mental challenges and never stop being students of life. In terms of dating/relationships, you are someone who prefers heart-to-heart talks and thoughtful gifts that may not even be tangible (like planning a trip somewhere your partner longs to visit or frequents). [Compare with ORANGE.]

GRAY = Mysterious; you consider yourself a mystery, enjoy being one and/or like to explore mysteries where you find them. You like interrogation, both giving and receiving.

BROWN = Chocolate-lover. Quite simply, you are in need of the brown (or white) stuff and are letting others know what would put a smile on your face on a day like today when you don’t have someone to love (in place of chocolate). You don’t want to dwell on feelings, who’s happy together or who’s starved for love. You’re not seriously looking for companionship. Just give you some chocolate.

——————-

COLOR COMBOS:

BLACK AND WHITE = Religious and/or marriage-minded. Religion is important to you.

RED, WHITE AND BLUE = Politically driven, patriotic or an activist. You support your nation’s government with pride.

RED AND BLACK CHECKERED = Lover of (board) games and puzzles.

HALF RED/HALF WHITE = You are in a medical field (of work), a surgeon, pharmacist, dentist, nurse, etc.

——————-

PATTERNS (OF YOUR RIBBON/TIE AND/OR ACCESSORIES):

POLKA DOTS = Bubbly, lighthearted or having a good sense of humor. You occasionally clown around and can take a joke (about yourself). Humor is important to you.

STRIPES =
ONE STRIPE = You’ve had one previous sexual relationship (no longer a virgin).
TWO STRIPES OR MORE = You’ve had more than one sexual relationship.

HEARTS =
ONE HEART = Monogamous; you are seeking one partner for a lifetime.
TWO HEARTS OR MORE = Polygamous or open to unconventional relationships.

ANIMAL PRINT = Nature-lover and/or animal-lover. Pick a print that best fits your interest/personality, like a spirit animal. If you think of yourself as a tigress, wear a tiger stripe ribbon/tie. If you are chatty like a parrot, wear a tie/ribbon with a parrot face/profile. If you favor dogs over cats, wear a tie/ribbon that has (a) dog(s) on it.

STARS =
ONE STAR = Divorced/Separated.
TWO TO FIVE STARS = Divorced (#/multiple) times.
MANY (SMALL) STARS = An interest in astrology/astronomy and/or space exploration.

DOLLAR SIGNS =
ONE DOLLAR SIGN = Money-minded; you give great importance to a person’s income and how they spend/save it.
MULTIPLE DOLLAR SIGNS = You are rich and proud of it.

MASK(S) (THEATER, CARNIVAL OR HARLEQUIN) = An interest in role-play (not necessarily role-playing games, aka RPGs). You favor costume(s) (parties) and pretending to be other characters/creatures.

——————-

WHAT TO DO/NOT DO ON UNTIED DAY:

DO:
1– Treat yourself to something you normally push aside because it’s not “frugal,” too flashy to wear most days, not the best use of your time or not the best for your “diet.” [But, see DO NOT #1.]

2– Represent yourself, your interests and/or personality (quirks) with what you wear.

3– Approach someone else dressed for this special day if you like or care to know more about what you see, knowing they are single/unattached like yourself. And, chat with that person, starting with some question or comment related to their chosen attire/accessories. It’s the best and fastest cure to being single/alone on a day like this.

4– Respect the interests of others dressed for this special day if they choose NOT to speak and/or be nice to you. Not everyone on such a singles day needs or wants to kindle a new relationship (with you). Mind your distance, be open to rejection and respect the color code (if the person uses the one I’ve provided). And, if you are approached but not interested in who approaches, respectfully let the person know.

5– Meet new singles in public, drug-free places. [IE A mall, a restaurant, a department store, your workplace or a dog park.]

 

DO NOT:
1– Spend more money today than absolutely necessary to please yourself or buy any material things (IE new clothes or jewelry). You should not be taking any financial risks on a day of love (other than missing a day of work, perhaps). You might know the old expression about money not being able to buy you happiness (or love). I personally do not like buying anything on my birthday; that’s a day for other people to treat ME (respectfully and/or kindly). Likewise…

2– Pretend to be someone or something you are not. Faking is dangerous and often cruel.

3– Assume what someone is wearing for this special day means what you think it does. [See DOs #3 and #4.]

4– Criticize or try to discourage anyone from dressing festively for this special day. You can spare one day from spreading your negativity. Can’t you? Ease up on the uniform policy; think of this as a casual (Fri)day.

5– Look for new partners at a bar or anywhere you might be less conscious of your actions (should you partake in drug use). DO NOT get drunk to loosen up or forget something/someone. You know you are not content with yourself if you do so; you only ignore your nerves/conscience that way. [Then again, this IS a singles day. So, if you fool around, you’ll likely get another chance to dress up next year. But, you might like yourself less.]

——————-

There you have it. Now, get out there (or lounge where you may) and represent your single selves. Remember, this is a day to either be content with your single status–not pursue any new relations–or let others know who you are if they are seeking a partner. Be creative. Be happy. Be free. Be un-tied.
