Sunday Chronicle: the Feeling of Clothing

I was going to re-establish some of the previous posts in a Sunday column about how the setting to a garment is more important than the garment itself.

When I was a student was the clothing budget is somewhat limited, for obvious reasons. To plan their shopping was the key to getting as much value for money as possible. Clearance in Copenhagen was therefore a given visit for me as the Lund Student. Eagerly, I went through the drawers findings in any position to try to find stylish clothing at a reduced price, and finally I found a pair of Evisu jeans – 500 (Danish) crowns! A chapter clearly, especially as this was when the Evisu-jeans were hard to find and expensive to purchase additionally. Glad to mind: I sat on the Öresund train back.

So far, so good. I used jeans diligently and got compliments from friends for the different stitching on the back pocket. But as to my interest in clothes grew, I began to learn more about the craft behind, and how to distinguish a genuine garment from a fake. Not only that I had paid an undervalue of my jeans, it was a lot of other things that did not match either. Slowly but surely I accept that I had been deceived – the jeans I had bought were copies.

After this sad realization, it was downhill for the jeans. They ended up farther and farther into the closet and in my eyes they were not as attractive anymore. In the end they gave me so bad associations that I gave them to a friend to get rid of them.

The same pair of jeans that I had been so pleased with was suddenly, in my eyes, unusable. Why? Well, because it’s not the garment itself that matters, it’s how you look at the garment that is important. Clothing should convey a good feeling to those who wear them. You should feel good looking, confident and happy about everything has gone as it should. And the second you start to feel uncomfortable in a garment does not matter what brand it is, or how much it cost – it will not be good anyway.

I was left with the feeling that I had been deceived on a pair of jeans. My friend was happy because she got a new pair. The same pair of jeans, but two completely different settings.
