Dinda is on time, grinning broadly, wearing a turquoise-colored longsleeve, a jacket with brown elbow-patches, over it. In the breast pocket of his jacket he carries a pen, wears bright green socks, gray trousers and leather shoes.
We asked him what he thinks of the current trends like Baseball and creepers, what his biggest fashion sin was and how he has found his style.
Describe your style.
Still in style.
Can style be taught?
If your environment sharpens your senses when you busy yourself with the topic, then style can certainly be learnt. Like almost everything else in life.
How did you find your style?
It has grown with my aesthetic sense. Eventually I got, that clothes are not only functional, but also visual. But my style is evolving. What I wore three years ago, I would burn today.
Important issue: style sins. What are your biggest ones?
Red cowboy boots with flame pattern. I loved her above all else. Why? I ask myself today. Pointe shoes, so the cut on the shit, I feel today as “Still in Style”.
What will you wear at your own funeral?
A tailored suit by Jens Fanslau..
At the end of our little conversation we want to hear your opinion on four current fashion trends:
Trend 1: Baseball
It’s great on the baseball field.
Trend 2: Transparency
Trend 3: Creepers

Quiz-question: which fashion-blogger is unable to write a full sentence, is licking his own asshole everyday and still earns more money than you, who has an abhorred office-job (about 15.000,- Dollar per month)?
No, it is not Sami Slimani – he owns more. And it is not Jessica Weiß - she knows how to write (and does not lick her own ass, as far as we know).
It is Bodhi. And different from Sami Slimani, Bodi is a dog.
The dog earns about 15.000,- Dollar per month with fashion-blogging. And all of that, just because his owner had the world-greatest-ideam to put men’s clothes on the dog – and than had the brilliant idea, to make a blog out of it.
Fashion brands as AMERICAN APPAREL, GANT and ASOS are paying hundreds of dollars, so that Bodhi is wearing their clothes. Well, if nobody else does it (besides maybe Sami - here for example).
We are definitely picking up role-models, looking at the top-earners Bodhi and Sami and are starting to smell our own assholes again. Maybe then we are finally going to have the style and the money.
