I hate “Fashion”.  Fashion is for people who don’t have any style.  Follow me here.  See fashion is what’s sold to you by a team of marketers, manufacturers, CEOs and twit designers.  It takes a team of highly paid individuals to swindle large masses of people into thinking that something they previously regarded as frumpy (remember ponchos?) or silly (remember capris?) is something that is actually attractive and worth over spending on.

Style on the other hand is something completely different.  Style is looking at your surroundings, taking all the things that influence you in your daily life, and interpreting them in a way that outwardly expresses you as an individual.  Taking clothes from a thrift store or your dad’s closet or the street or even Ross, and rocking them in a way that makes you look and feel good , now that’s style.  Paying lots of money for a certain brand’s version of a certain look (that won’t even be popular in a year and a half), is just lame.

That being said, I do understand that the capitalist system has us all by the balls and we can’t help being consumers; we all have our ridiculous shit we spend money on (myself included).  So for those of you who’s thing is designer brands, this Saturday will be awesome for you.  Read below:

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

Stuart Schuffman, aka Broke-Ass Stuart, is a travel writer, poet, TV host, activist, and general shit-stirrer. His website is one of the most influential arts & culture sites in the San Francisco Bay Area and his freelance writing has been featured in Lonely Planet, Conde Nast Traveler, The Bold Italic, and too many other outlets to remember. His weekly column, Broke-Ass City, appears every other Thursday in the San Francisco Examiner. Stuart’s writing has been translated into four languages. In 2011 Stuart created and hosted the travel show Young, Broke, and Beautiful on IFC and in 2015 he ran for Mayor of San Francisco and got nearly 20k votes.

He's been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York.
