OYOS — Blue Collar Work Ethic, White Collar Education — How I collect the Right Information and you can do it too

We go again,

I wouldn’t know how to explain it any differently. But I will try and expound on what I mean, the lengths I’ve gone to to get an education have been extreme almost dying and coming back many times because that’s just how I was raised.

Since I was a teenager I knew I would have to work incredibly differently than my peers, I didn’t know how differently. In honesty a big part of me educating myself came from dark places. 90% of my formative years educating myself was from a sick bed learning the thing that was going to get me the grade while doing the thing that would get me the grade because that’s just how I was raised

Life has seen me differently in the past couple of years I’ve had to put in more work finding the right information than actually learning it. Learning is no longer an issue for a brain used to consuming information it’s the quality of information that is important. Right now the internet is like a rainforest full of all manner of things most poisonous and some delectable. Those are the risks I take for an education because that’s just how I was raised.

I enjoy learning I was told from young it will get me places, but no one ever tells you the risks in finding out the right information, sometimes that can still burn like arsenic… information really changes situation, it’s changed my lifewhat we think we know isn’t always the truth and sometimes it feels like people would it be that way – how incredibly sad.

What do I do to avoid putting strychnine in my coffee instead of sugar? but if it wasn’t for the way I was raised I would not be the type to have handled it as well as I do.

I say this because the amount of information that is shared that just happens to be false, falsified or misleading or misguided is exorbitant. I’ve dedicated a bulk of my life to academia being in bed library hospital or in the classroom and whist I have been out of the educational sphere I find most of the information is guided under lock and key in each industries individual jargon. The jungle of information continue to mask the right information and strychnine is masked as fruit trees, what we think we know isn’t always the truth and sometimes it feels like people would rather it be that way – how incredibly sad.

What do I do to avoid putting strychnine in my coffee instead of sugar? I work on my investigative skills and I do as the scientist and mathematicians do. I ask an array of questions on a subject and I answer them with research to prove or disprove my hypothesis, it’s as simple or as complex as that. I remove my bias and go for the right information because it’s needed and not because I want to feel right but because there are too many people out here spreading the wrong information

It is not easy to find the right information without a great deal of information so you follow someone’s teachings and stick to their own circle of influence reinforcing their beliefs within their space, which works when you want a lifestyle tribe but doesn’t scale worldwide, it’s all blessed if you want to think what you think, possibly. If it’s not hurting people, maybe. But I like knowing what I know can be proven.

The Sneaker Stock Market – Ups and downs of sneaker Buying Holding and Traders

We go again,

Inn the years I’ve spent coveting sneakers. Let’s call it 20 years. I have grown to understand some of the faces you will come across, well characters, whom you can spot a mile off in their fits, people are what they wear for the most part. When it comes to sneaker cops and drops they are almost a literal incarnation of the description I’m going to put across.

Hype Beast

We all know about being a hype beast and fiening for a good drop from a highly coveted designer but I’ve noticed people get confused with Hypebeast – hypebeast is a term for entry level consumers just getting into fashion or more commonly someone that’s into all the highly coveted pieces for Jawn, fit checks flexing & other IG like purposes.

Botmen

The people who ruin drops for us normal people but if you have a bot sincerely i HATE YOU. I am here to buy a couple cool things that are to my taste and here they come rinsing everything out to resell. Hate that & them. Till I get a bot and become one of the bot men.

There’s no way the average person can get a drop because of these guys now. They hack ever drop

Flexers

Them man there and the celebrities that will spend whatever money they can on garms just to look desirable, because that’s what they do to grab the youngers attention.

They try it the youngers buy it, it’s like promo on steroids it’s what got the Milano skate brand off the ground for ASAP Ant who doesn’t skate a lick. Same with Kith and Supreme

Editors

these guys will paint cut strip and customise the clothes to their own liking making them originators they are my personal favourite type of people they even keep the AF1 alive and give free promo to any company there is out there because of what they do, like I said they keep the AF1 alive.

Tried to manipulate the Yeezy but it’s hard to paint on that fabric which is why the AF1 is a classic. Because of them. Salut.


banter aside, I have to talk about hype jackets because these people aren’t in it for the love they’re in it for a different game.

Hype jacking would be seeing people are into these things and buying only to resell and flip for an extortionate price. These guys most of the times are just kids, newly into fashion and just want to fit in somewhere. Look like their favourite rapper and consumed with the flex. And here you are swiping garments from under them not because you like the designer – which is not something you can say about these young bucks, knowing a designer is key to them. – but because you see what is selling and you want to cash in and cash out on the culture. Please have some respect and leave these kids alone, I’m not necessarily a purist but I do just love the game and am welcoming to all parties. The trash some people get up to I just can’t jive with.

Sweeping Trend: What I see about to sweep the general public – Animal, Print and Polka Dot are here in a big way

We go Again,

I have loved the reception that Sn Sv St has got. Not just as a blog but by the marketplace and how they are loving fashion items like those, well those who are bold anyway.

After all my shout outs to the colour orange during the winter season I am collecting those tokens and foreseeing the next trend. Right now this is February, Released in April 30. On the cusp of spring as I write this and I see More colour more print and more patterns in all forms.

Something I’m on now right after my Creeper blog something I want to happen vs something that is just what I feel we see more of as I Collected images from fashion month in February we will see more prints.

As an update to my patterns prints and sigils blog, the design dialogue. I see many many people wearing more prints and colours being more adventurous with their garments and choice of fabric as individualism takes more and more of a hold people are beginning to be their true selves and standing out from the crowd – Not as a way to force “Being bold” as a fashion student would say; more expressing themselves through garments and creating discourse through clothes.

My mind has been telling me this since winter and here are some choice edits from fashion week on the streets of  Europe, Milan, Berlin, Antwerp & Paris. People are becoming greater at being themselves and wearing what they really want.

That would be animal prints mainly tiger stripes to take over the nautica of last year and leopard spots of furs as well as polka dots. I for one will be partaking in Dots all summer, Last year was Nautical Stripes now I’m on Polka dots.

 neon & snake print gaudy yes but its only the start.

It’s a quirk I’m really into I will be buying a couple pieces that reflect that for this summer. Just wanting to be better with style and doing things that haven’t been done before in my little subsection.

I can tell exactly how I’d rock them stripes too and them polka dots and considering it’s just a pattern prints and sigils blog let me share my thoughts on style

i want a orange hoodie wit tiger stripes

An oversized polka dot jumper

Leopard print fur/ borg

Zebra print gilet

IMG_6913

this would be all part of my prints capsule collection.

I will be perpetuating the agenda for the next year because animal prints are coming back in a big way just not in the time that’s now.

In menswear it will be all part of the chimera garms territory which I won’t say much about less someone steals my ideas for the season. Just know if you see it they got it from me

It’s really fun having your ideas being taken note of. All designers and stylist are really creative and it’s great to see the ideas I write about in the marketplace and merchandisable, tells me I’m on a good track with my design process
