Denim is the infantile uniform of a nation in which entertainment frequently features childlike adults […] Denim is the clerical vestment for the priesthood of all believers in democracy’s catechism of leveling — thou shalt not dress better than society’s most slovenly. To do so would be to commit the sin of lookism — of believing that appearance matters. That heresy leads to denying the universal appropriateness of everything, and then to the elitist assertion that there is good and bad taste.

  4. I wonder why people wear jeans so much. I mean, I wear jeans a lot too, but I don’t really know why. But I’m not sure this guy telling people they’re stupid for wearing jeans is really the right source of information for this curiosity…
