Pitchfork! The land of totally-not-pretentiousness has a clothing spread in the Wall Street Journal (see how uncool they are now guys?). Now let’s delve into their clothing style, musical taste, and other totally normal not-at-all annoying influences!
RJ Bentler, vice president of video programming, cites ’90s rap and the Glasgow band Orange Juice for his buttoned-to-the-top shirt style. “I’m definitely a Glaswegian wannabe,” he said, ”and I feel like it looks better.”
Wait. Did you seriously not know Orange Juice? They’re a really original 1980s band that sounds nothing like 1980s music. Hahahaha JK you idiots if you listened to Orange Juice you’d know that!
“People hear Pitchfork and think everyone is dressed in super skinny jeans and flannel, but it’s more of a range,” said Ms. Battan, who usually wears black. “You can dress as up or as down as you want.” She said the interns are often the best dressed in the office. “I find that college students are really into what they wear and how they dress,” she said. “More so than people who are used to being around an office and don’t care as much anymore.”
As far as fashion influences from the music world, Ms. Battan looks to the late 1990s. “I really like Fiona Apple’s aesthetic when she was first starting out, and also Lauryn Hill, when they were both at the beginning of their careers.”
Would it be too much to ask if Ms Battan would want to write for free for us? She clearly knows how to be self-deprecating. Talking about how vain college girls are while she totally isn’t – unless you count late 1990s fashion, including early Fiona Apple, as an influence. TOTALLY DIFFERENT, you guys!
Although to be honest, everyone is dressed really nicely and I would totally talk with them and be their friend based just on the clothes they wear.
