There have been a lot of exercised quads on display. In New York, Theory’s Martin Andersson made his own contribution. Having taken tropical modernism as a starting point for his new Theory collection, he did a navy shorts suit, and also showed shorts with sportswear layers: A suede jacket topped a ribbed knit sweater, nylon anorak, and trim Bermuda. Andersson said this was a collection about texture. When the humidity spikes, the New York subways are a sweat factory and tailoring becomes a real turn-off. So he set about sourcing fabrics that can work in extreme temperatures. The company’s traceable “Good Linen” was blended with tech fabric for a modern touch on a “balsa”-color suit. And on another suit, he used paper nylon with a “crispy” hand texture that will be wilt resistant at any dew point. But his best idea for beating the heat where those shorts. Now that Wall Street has once and for all abandoned the suit and tie, could it embrace exposed dude knees? The American tradition of men’s dress from which Browne mines his material is via Ivy League, rooted in sport, and here there were Sportif accessories galore: basketball bags, soccer ball bags, football bags a lot of ball bags, basically. Some of the seersucker panniers worn on the shoulder lent a prettily garlanded, football-echoing bulk to the form within, and one exposed pannier skirt featured seersucker balls that rested between it and either side of the wearer’s hip.
Browne is a highly popular designer among professional sports players, of course, and he explained today’s play thus: “I’ve always use sports as a reference, and today, playing with the severity of the 18th-century reference, grounding it in sports, was a way to bring it into the men’s world.”And since the decreased spending will probably reduce overall economic activity it is more likely to reduce “net production of wealth”, and not increase it, meaning, if savings equals investment plus net production, He is more likely to decrease overall savings than spending is. Increasing investment spending will increase the savings that is the preservation of investment, and it will via its multiplier effect further increase total spending. And this overall increase in spending is more likely to increase net production as well, especially if we have un or underutilized resources that the spending can cause to be activated in the wealth creation and preservation process.
