everyone must be offended these days.

When Michael Kors debuted his ready-to-wear collection for spring and summer 2019 at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, some people recognized two very familiar articles of clothing that didn’t seem to belong



The designer included a black-and-gray hooded jacket and a sleeveless black, green, red and white version ― a design known in Mexican and U.S. Latinx culture as a jerga.



“So, this is a serious issue, which involves not just the outright theft of the items themselves, including by ‘buying’ these items at cheap prices, but also the theft of the knowledge bases of their origin,” Urrieta continued. “It is also a violation of the relational ways in which material culture is produced, and the purpose of the use of these items in communities.”




i really dont get it

cant clothes just be clothes? dont all clothes come from somewhere else?

whats that big ass deal that mexicans have been making them and wearing them for who knows how long?

i just can not wrap my head around this stuff.

en.wikipedia.org...


Research on the trade of jean fabric shows that it emerged in the cities of Genoa, Italy, and Nîmes, France. Gênes, the French word for Genoa, may be the origin of the word "jeans".
In Nîmes, weavers tried to reproduce jean fabric but instead developed a similar twill fabric that became known as denim, from de Nîmes, meaning "from Nîmes".
Genoa’s jean fabric was a fustian textile of "medium quality and of reasonable cost", very similar to cotton corduroy for which Genoa was famous, and was "used for work clothes in general".
The Genoese navy equipped its sailors with jeans, as they needed a fabric which could be worn wet or dry


everything comes from somewhere.

bet all those mexican people wearing their traditional sweater pair it with some jeans every now and again.
appropriating bastards

Better not see anyone ever wearing denim jeans, they were created by and for American cowboys!

Um...

Where the hell am I going to find a Cherokee/Hopi/Irish sweater?



ETA... the coloring and style appears to be a Pendelton knockoff... which is made in Oregon and established by a British weaver.

Cultural appropriation indeed.

Probably the same type that also fly the mexican flag above the US flag in the US.

Probably the same reason you hear so much about illegal hispanic immigration in comparison to others. Sense of entitlement and all.

Cultural appropriation is one of the most regressive complaints I've encountered.

We should want to share and explore each other's culture.

You also can't drink Corona or eat tacos. Also, we own pinatas.

I...whut?

I just spent a good 5 minutes reading and re reading this, and either my brain has stopped working, or it's so stupid (the article, not your post), that my brain just went on strike rather than try to decipher it.

I think I have reached the point of the world makes so little sense, I cannot accept it any more.

can you imagine of someone had though up cultural appropriation in the 80's?

i am not sure if anyone on now is old enough or even remembers but i can remember walking around pinellas mall in st pete florida with my dad in around 87-88.
every damn store in that mall had dashiki's for sale. all the white peeps were wearing those damn things.

i remember a store called shalimar. sold perfume. knives. fanny packs and dashikis.

i dont remember anyone crying about that

its just the thing to do these days

So, I have one of those Hooded pullovers actually from Mexico, that my stepdad got when he went there, like twenty years ago. Am I going to be in danger wearing it?
And Hubby has one, that we actually ordered from LW a few years ago. Why didn't they raise a stink over that catalog that had it in it?

Just plain stupid.

I'm led to believe that they were 'invented' by a gold miner? The story goes he was frustrated with traditional pants not lasting due to working in the mines, so made a pair out of the denim canvas used for tents. He even used copper rivets to hold them together, and apparently was laughed at when he wore them into a bar.

I think it was Levi Strauss, from Levi jeans fame, but can't remember...

Just to let me finish my mental image, are your pumps appropriated too?

Because that would just ruin it for me.
