Endurance! (Good or bad?)

 

5 days ago I run a marathon. It was one of the warmest ones in Copenhagen Marathon’s history! Wow! That was a really, really hot day! With the sun beaming from a clear blue sky, and almost no shadows in sight. Such a beautiful experience! Read more

T.D.O.H.A.G. – The prequel!

 

The idea is actually quite simple.

  1. Take one person.
  2. Design 10 trousers (or skirts), 10 tops (or shirts), and 10 “covers” (as in jackets, windbreakers or coats).
  3. Make the garments.
  4. Wear them 100 times each.
  5. That would give a total of 1.000 combination possibilities.

Let’s take that one more time! 30 garments, divided into three groups. Combine them with each other and that will give you a whole new outfit, every day, for 1.000 days.  10 x 10 x 10 = 1.000. Rather obvious one could say – but still kind of amazing! That’s almost three years! Read more

How much clothes do I really need? (Bespoke Era and beyond!)

 

10 cubed. Or cube root of 1.000. Thousand Days Of Hope And Glory. A project. How many items of clothing would I need for that? (And what is Bespoke Era anyway?)

Math can be so complicated! Especially when tried to be put right into practical use. I know that. So when our Bespoke Era project was started – a project where we look into if a person could wear bespoke tailored garments only, for a certain amount of time, and if possibly, having all the clothes made by one person only, like in the “good ol’ days” – I quickly began to plan and calculate how much clothing and time that was needed, to enable our test-person to be dressed in life’s many situations. A lot, it showed. Of course. But not as much as one would think. Still I wasen’t quite sure of my calculations. Read more
