People throughout history subjected themselves to corsets bound feet etc. Todays fashion at least in the western world is much more comfortable. Women wore clothing so intricate and heavy they could barely move and men chocked themselves on their collars. I love current fashion because i no longer feel it is mandatory to follow a specific trend. You can dress however you like , sure you can be ridiculed for it tho.
>>75342 By defintion, the current time period woild have the best fashion becasue it would have acess to all the fashion that came before; and year will always have all the fashion of the previous years acessibly to it in additon to any new innovations and thus, regardless of the quality gained each year, quality is never lost given we havent had any major catestrophies that would render all records of an era's fashion gone since we wore clothes.
>>75342 >why is modern fashion so ugly. Despite what other posters say, this is actually true. Why? The world seems to be evolving a single culture and thus a single style of clothing. For example, there is nothing distinct about the clothing worn in China and the clothing worn in America.
I have my own theories on this. I believe we are living in the uncanny valley of fashion. Synthetic materials and automated clothing factories have made this an inevitability. Soon, though perhaps not within our lifetimes, we'll see a global culture take root and clothing will fall into place. The future is very close to us now.
>>75684 Who the fuck cares, not only do I know what a toga is; I can in a few minutes gain acess to an unprecenedtaed welath of data on it.
The fact we can even have this conversation in the first place proves my point.
You think in 1600 guys in Spain were able to debate the merits of Qin Chineese clothing?
Current Fashion is ALL the Fashion, I can look like a cross between Willy Wonka, Lex Luthor and Imhotep if I want to. Humanities are fundemnatally about the transfer of information and today we have reached an incomprhensiblly vast store of information; meaning we are in the golden age of Humanities, Culture Music etc. period.
Even if only one worthwhile cultural acheivment was made in a year, hell a decade, it would still by defintion be at a cultural level higher than all of known human culture put together, becasue we literally have acheived all of known human culture put together.
I can remake a Kanye West song with a human keyboard made in Japan based on sound cues from a Mongolian throat singer with lyrics based on Sanskrit poetry translated into Welsh and sun by a latin choir.
Right now I am talking to 15 people from around the world naked, in a respository that can be acessed by anyone.
We have become Meme Gods' infinetaly powerful human engines of processing information; we aproach a cultural singualrity.

Yeah, and people are going to think you look like a weirdo. Fashion trends are all about what's normative. Being able to wear a a weird combination of previous styles isn't. There's definitely a current fashion and it's not "all fashions of the past."
>>76362 >>76384 Because everything before it is clothing of the aristocrats or bourgeouis elite while everything after it was after the rise of pop culture and shows average joe clothing. If they showed what the average person wore throughout history it wouldn't look too fancy.
>>76384 The clothes of 1900 are for everyone instead of the upper-class, obviously the average peasant in the centuries before didn't look like an nobleman whereas the average guy in 1900s would dress like that.
>>75342 >Comparing the elite and powerful from the past to the proletariat and parasites of the present.
There are plenty of extravagant and nonsensically amazing clothes today, you don't see it because you can't afford it. Inevitably the history books won't feature average joe in his Adidas and work jeans, either.
>>75342 >Why is today's fashion so ugly and retarded in the 1990s each and every fashion media started promoting going back to the 60s style and era, but with a "modern" twist we have reached the time loop now, reviving the 90s which were a revival of the 60s anyways
