    Slightly different, and kind of in reverse. I’m lazy when it comes to fashion but I still know what I like to wear. In Melbourne I’d constantly be worried that anyone aged about 15-25 would KNOW that my entire outfit was from General Pants. It’s like that awkward moment when you go into a shop wearing the same clothes as the mannequin – but every day on the street. The best solution to that stress was moving to Darwin where there isn’t even a General Pants store and the locals are a bit slow on the ASOS uptake. And, all of a sudden, it was a huge compliment for someone to say that I looked like I was from Melbourne. Well, good. Darwin people wear board shorts on a night out. And when I’m back in Melbourne, it’s for such a brief period I just don’t give a shit what people think 🙂

    Good resolution. People who assume they know everything about you based on what you wear need to fuck off anyway.

    “People who assume they know everything about you based on what you wear need to fuck off anyway.”

    Exactly! I couldn’t have put it better myself.

    A couple of weeks ago, I actually bought something from General Pants for the first time in more than a year. It feels so liberating to not care about it. But I’m glad that you’re able to strut your stuff in Darwin without worrying about people knowing where you shop.
