That's so Mainstream
In "Clothing" in Walden, Thoreau describes how you need. Clothing, it is a necessity, but fashion really does not matter. You could get up and put on anything, and it should not matter, “Like shipwrecked sailors, they put on what they can find on the beach, and at a little distance, whether of space or time, laugh at each other's masquerade. Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new…”. We should listen here, because fashion does not really matter. We might laugh at clothing in the 80's, but, in essence, they all do the same thing. He almost says, you should not be criticized on attire because one attire does no more than another. “I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes.” He also describes in this chapter that new and old clothes will serve equally as well. Why do something that requires new clothing, if your old clothes will do. In summary, new clothes and fashionable clothes do not do more than old clothes, they all have the same purpose
Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.
