Fascinating. Highly reminiscent of the "Mod" movement in Britain and elsewhere in the early-mid 60's. The Who set Mod trends by innovating on the Mod clothes they saw their audience wearing--feedback loop indeed. They did the same with dances. Perhaps "fashion" is a dance you wear?

Thanks for the thoughtful insightful piece. Grant McCracken led me here.


I saw him several times when I lived in New York and remember feeling a bit of excitement when he looked at me once - would he snap my photo? He didn't, but the mere sight of him made me think about how I might dress to bring a smile to him - or to myself. He is a great reminder that fashion is not the sole province of designers and buyers.


note from blog moderatorI just did a Google seacrh for Cushman apparel. And found Don's website and blog on the first page. It’s fifth from the bottom but on the first page. Needless to say I’m pretty proud of myself doing it in less than a week.I am Don's web guy. I have set up many websites but few blogs. This one runs off of WordPress. It's a very easy interface to learn.I have put up two widgets a calendar and a donations. Right now it works but it will go to me. Until I can teach Don how not to loose it in the net, I will hold any donations for him.I look forward to make this blog Don's Window on the Web. How to keep up with where he's going what's happening with Cushman enthusiast everywhere!Just post you comments and until Ron finds his own Blog Moderator I will be approving comments. I'll do it quickly if I'm at my computer, 12 hours a day but not always. My wife complains. But within a day, so check back often.I look forward to hearing from you.Paul Godaaka beachbird
