Personal Aesthetic Exploration

I personally have never put much thought towards my personal aesthetics, but generally I tend to choose the products I own or the clothes I wear primarily focused on there desired performance. I grew up in the Northeast so for a significant portion of the year it was wicked cold. As a result, I realized a majority of my wardrobe consists of long pants and heavy sweaters. For the past couple years I haven’t had access to a car so my primary method of transportation has been a skateboard. As a result, I own at least 5-10 pears of old hiking pants, for they are cheap, durable, and a movable material. Hiking pants are typically made in darker earthy tones and the rest of my wardrobe matches. Most of my jackets and sweaters are black, blue and grey except for a couple high-vis jackets for running or skating at night. In-terms of nicer clothes, the stuff in my closet looks like a J.Crew catalogue because that was what under the Christmas tree.

My room is really my only personal space and generally it follows similar aesthetics found in my clothing. My bedding and furniture are mainly black, blues and brown. I like to fill the empty space on my wall with hangers to hold my snowshoes, or backpacks. My desk has a fairly modern aesthetic with subtle LEDs in my pc case and peripherals. The overall goal of the setup is optimal performance in the current meta of zoom schooling.  My room definitely reflects my personal outdoorsman aesthetic despite the modern desk, but again function drives most of my described aesthetics.

  • Hey Peter,

    It’s cool to see how your aesthetic revolves around performance. I think that aesthetic does really fit the clothes/the room you have. Comfort does not seem to be a priority among the clothes you have, why do you think that is?

  • Hey Peter,

    I see you mentioned performance based but I think it is interesting to see how you have a skateboard to get around, outdoor clothing like hiking pants, and hoodies. It is almost like a mixture of multiple aesthetics but I do see how it is based on functionality and usability. Your room definitely reflects an outdoorsy aesthetic though, but I am wondering if thinking about your personal aesthetic has made you want to change aesthetic or add to it? Or do you think its mainly still functionality based.
