Integrating GORPcore

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GeTB8w2FQ_6ogTSPFHpt_d5mH7z63Dwd54HTr_L6qYk/edit?usp=sharing I’ve been working on this for a bit. It’s a small guide on adding elements of GORPcore to your personal style, taking the approach of swapping items that you’re already working with. I wanted to introduce some defining pieces of the style, give a starting point for expansion, and offer some ideas about integrating GORPcore into an existing wardrobe. This is: for dipping your toes into GORPcore from an aesthetic, not purely functional, point of view. It is about tapping into the visual cues and connotations of the style. This is not: the end-all-be-all of GORPcore. There are other subgenres, specifics, and killer fits that I missed or did not have the space to include. There are plenty of photos if you want to just jump to the moodboard: https://www.are.na/dev-plant/integrating-gorpcore-moodboard And some easy listening while you read: https://soundcloud.com/quietmountaincafe/quiet-mountain-radio-vol-5-long-drive

walt's integration of gorp ideas in casual contexts is really emblematic of this kinda style imo. This article is making me think about getting a puffer

Thanks for the feedback y'all, it's much appreciated. I went ahead and migrated it over to google docs to make the saving/viewing process a bit easier! There's a lot that I've missed tbh, if you'd like to add what you've got DM me a good email and I'll send you an editor link!
