First off Happy New Year! Second off welcome to Above Standard Issue.
This blog is my brain child. It has taken a lot of strategic planning and careful selection. A lot of this blog has come down to timing and just having the right people to work with. I believe the ASI team has an incredibly refreshing view of fashion, culture, and vintage style. Hopefully through our posts, pictures, and interviews we can show you our point of view from the DMV and beyond.
But here’s to January 2nd, the birthday of Above Standard Issue. Why 1/2/12? I picked this date because the new year brings a fresh start. However, I want to stress not only a fresh start but what’s next. So if the 1 stands for fresh and new. Then the 2 stands for fresh and next. When everyone is celebrating now, ASI is planning for next.
So Happy New Year, welcome to the new wave of fashion blogging and a contemporary view of convenient culture.
