“A lot of indie music these days is about not having a position, not having something to say, not poking your head up and trying to articulate something specific about yourself, or the world, or how you feel. It’s almost an epidemic in some circles: Trying or caring is somehow haughty. Simply capturing a vibe or a mood is preferred instead. But that’s what marketing does; it’s not what music is supposed to do. This sort of cowardice— choosing fitting-in over standing out— isn’t something James Murphy takes lightly. LCD Soundsystem never cared for doing things half-ass and using nonchalance as a substitute for really putting yourself out there.” —

What brand/store(s) do you recommend for well fitting chinos
J Crew’s ‘urban slim fit’ is really well-made, and it also fits me well.
