This article (https://quartzy.qz.com/1234339/in-a-disposable-age-luxury-is-something-old-worn-and-beautiful/) is interesting generally, but a highlight is the short film on men’s shoes. It’s an alert about what to watch out for in truly quality shoes.
The article is a critique of fast fashion and is an appeal for slowness (see V&R, Chapter 2 on this idea) in our use of, and attachment to, clothes. It points to the Japanese aesthetic principle of appreciating the well-worn, or well-lived in. A lovely example is the film Totoro.
