The collection also played on sophistication in the I_m not afraid to foul out so don_t even try me shirt and I love this daywear offer, with tailoring in proprietary soft-toned wool-gabardine exuding a luxurious yet relaxed feel. An interesting alternative for summer evenings was a single-breasted cashmere blazer in a dense, sensual tobacco shade; paired with cream-colored fluid pants, “it’d look beautiful with a tan,” suggested Wrazej. A sporty allure featured prominently in a series of knitted intarsia sweaters and polo shirts with marine-inspired motifs, while nautical references were in evidence in officer’s jackets, wide-leg pants, and striped sweaters. But the most innovative aspect the collection were the RLX technical performance fabrics used for roomy, well-cut waterproof parkas and sailing jackets. “It’s nylon, a polyester yarn made using recycled plastic bottles,” explained Wrazej. ”It’s completely high-performance. The company is taking a strong stand towards going sustainable. For Fall we’ll have a lot more sustainable fabrics; probably 80 percent of our nylons and insulations will be made with sustainable yarns,” he continued. “The issue is front and center across the company, with very strict guidelines that over the next four or five years we’ll be shifting the label towards a much more environmentally conscious approach, even in manufacturing.” Then that bubble imploded grandly. Nice selling short opportunities. Bubbles in an industry or sector can happen at any time in any market condition and economic condition. She’s from an era when ladies tended to never leave the house without a hat or headscarf and gloves, my grandmothers were like it, my mother gradually relaxed it and I rarely wear one. I attended a school where we had to wear grey felt hats in the winter and straw boaters in the summer, I think it caused me to rebel against the enforced wearing of hats. I have no idea if she wears the same one over again. She definitely coordinates them to match her outfits. She is seen in public without the obligatory head covering but not very often. The next generations of Royal ladies seem to be less entrenched in the hat-wearing tradition so I think it’s one of those things that will fade away into an ‘as and when’ fashion statement. The savings that equal investment is just the preservation of the money used for investment spending. The expression savings equals investment does not include any accounting of new wealth produced or wealth depleted. I argue here that in order for the expression for savings to include an accounting of what happens to the level of wealth, that the equation for savings must be modified to include an additional element.
For years, Marcus Wainwright talked up Rag & Bone’s connection to the I_m not afraid to foul out so don_t even try me shirt and I love this street, emphasizing the off-duty IRL-ness of the clothes. The design team wasn’t inattentive to trends, but it certainly didn’t follow them obsequiously. Tried-and-true essentials were the order of the day. So it was no small development to hear Wainwright say at a visit to the brand’s showroom that there’s “a call for more ‘pushed’ fashion on the men’s side.” As ever at R&B, the foundations are British tailoring, American workwear, a strong Japanese aesthetic most notable via fabrications, and a sports element. But as promised, those foundations were heightened this time around. See the pinstriping on a well-cut coat and the eye-catching color-blocking on strict military shirts, cargo pants, and tennis sweaters. The bomber with “44” embroidered on the arm that President Obama wore to a college basketball game back in February, nearly breaking the Internet in the process, was cut with a new floral-print lining made from Japanese indigo (and sans the 44 detail). Wainwright and co. made excellent use of fabrics sourced from Japan. Pull-on pants in faded indigo cotton managed to look both fashionable and essential at the same time. He should add them to the Rag & Bone women’s collection, for sure. Rage and alienation: is this Raf Simons’s comfort zone, the place which connects him back, as a 51-year-old man, to the teenage experience his work continually fetishizes? Well, Simons doesn’t have to play nice to any bosses anymore. After his exit from Calvin Klein, he reports only to himself. And what the free Raf Simons wants to say is exactly how much he accuses and despises corporate America. Quite apart from the slogans, it was there rather clearly, breaking through on the soundtrack, a voice which intoned, “Big lie…media America, corporate America…fascist America.” Sometimes, watching a Simons show can feel like sitting an exam or trying to crack a cryptic crossword. I have shown a model where we define spending as the transfer of ownership of money for a purpose, and make the idea of what we consider to be a purpose for spending general enough to allow us to include all transfers of ownership of money as qualifying to be considered spending. Using this definition, I show a way to derive the savings equals investment identity. Using that model I am able to show that, not only is the savings equals investment identity a true identity, where saving is always equal to investment, but I also show the reason it is true is because the money saved is the same money as that initially used for investment spending.
