Clean Clothes

Who wants to go about in dirty clothes? Not me.

That's why I have signed up to the Clean Clothes Campaign.

There's a song by the folk singer Chris Wood Oyster Band that talks about the saddest thing is workers in developing countries putting holes in jeans.

But some companies still sandblast jeans in a process that kills the workers.

If you want to wear distressed clothes buy second hand clothes that have been distressed and have the patina of experience. Don't wear some factory fresh distress.

A brilliant critique of Adam Curtis's style over substance.
