George Orwell

I read this today:

"I had worn bad enough things before, but nothing at all like these; they were not merely dirty and shapeless, they had -how is one to express it?- a gracelessness, a patina of antique filth, quite different from mere shabbiness."

- George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London, page 128 (if you want to look).

He also says, "... clothes are powerful things," on the next page.

And all that made me want to start a blog. This blog's existence is for the sole purpose of there being a blog called A Patina of Antique Filth. So there you go.
