Instead of Fast Fashion, Shop The Fore
In our current rocky political climate and ever evolving world, it is very easy to feel helpless. How can just one person do anything to change the seemingly chaotic, angry, and wasteful society that exists around us? We do what we can to shop sustainably, be less wasteful, and cut things out of our diets to make an effort to help what seems to be a constant uphill battle of saving our planet. It truly seems as though for every good deed that is done with the intent of a positive impact, five things are done by someone else to counteract it. It is important to keep in mind that a community working as a thousand individuals does nowhere near as much good as a community working as one group, one team.
An item very unique to The Fore is their take on an all-weather windbreaker. The Windbreaker, as they call it, is one of the brands most futuristic looking garments. Coming in a few different cuts (one short sleeved, one long sleeved, and one that comes down to the knee), The Windbreaker offers a kind of ambidexterity to the mundane “overcast day” type of raincoat. With its sleek fabric and cinched waist, The Windbreaker seems as though it could have been taken out of a dystopian novel.
While boasting a very impressive price tag of one to two hundred dollars a garment, The Fore offers to consumers something that is not currently available across the market: a sense of community and closeness to artists and designers from all across the world.
