There’s a growing notion that this is a good thing. One of my prized possessions is a T-shirt purchased from a surf shop down the California coastline. It has a mystical logo on it. Beneath that, it says, in small type, “BE MINDFULL.” To me, this strikingly erroneous command reveals a lot about a certain West Coast subculture. “Mindfulness” sounds as if it ought to mean fastidiousness, but it’s recently been taken as a psycho-spiritual imperative. The idea is that the world is distracting, gluttonous, and fast, and that we should work toward a purer and more present-focussed consciousness. Late in the twentieth century, this was known as being chill.

RAPID REBLOGS- (‘A series where we talk some more about what we decide to reblog’)
Although Jake Gallagher is no longer going in hard on Tumblr, his regular blog is still feeling bouts of the update love: the latest of which is this telling photo from a 1965 copy of LIFE magazine. 
Shot somewhere at Yale - I don’t know specifically, they don’t let poor little yellow homies like me onto their pristine grounds - the image is a capsule of just how cyclical menswear is. Much of the kit on display could still be worn today: perhaps a little shorter, slimmer or in a different cut, but nonetheless still wearable. 
Of particular note is the gentleman second from the right: guy’s ensemble (fancy rarefied words for my Ivy bros) is on point. Navy blazer, white chino trousers and some penny loafers. Obviously this style is particularly East Coast but it is possible to pick elements of it apart and re-interpret them: DEAO answered a question about this exact issue not too long ago, which is also worth checking out.

喜马拉雅中心门口种了一片水稻,又不知从哪里移来一座亭子。我觉得很好看。可惜就是亭子上的灯笼,未免欠缺几缕古风。
