HR’s Got You: Pretentious Tornado Shelters, Wine Dads, and Broken ACs

More requests from HR readers via @humanrepeller! Hit HR’s line before requests get paywalled as I am now officially unemployed (If you get me a remote job, I will style you for the rest of your goddamn life ❤ )! Today, we are talking airport abjection, Beer Moms and Wine Dads, and the sludge of a summer sans AC.

“In the tornado shelter at the Denver International Airport and all you downloaded is Rei Harakami – @barstow_park_services

Hi Morgan This is the most pretentious outfit request HR has received to date, and I would have expected nothing less from you, so great work. I tried to keep things utilitarian (who knows how long you’ll be stuck in a bunker, last thing you need is to be wearing a scratchy wool sweater or something) but whimsical, cause it gets boring waiting for a tornado to decimate an airport! Wait, does this have something to do with the Denver Airport conspiracy theories? Well, in honor of Blucifer (and the chill Japanese music I know Morgan favors) I have included a ton of blue, indigo, and Japanese designers in the mix, as well as an absolutely insane T-shirt that will make sure if the bunker turns into a Lord of the Flies situation people will be too scared to try eating you.

“Wine Dad…”

A Wine Dad is someone of any gender who is a little snobby in a way born out of insecurity and more than made up for by gentleness and an intrinsic regality tempered by a sense of humor. In an outfit, that translates to deep wine colors (duh), classic patterns, collared shirts with relaxed silhouettes or funny details (i.e. a collared sweatshirt), and a whole lot of fun!

Slouchy Polo – $265

“…or Beer Mom” – @marennab

Beer Mom is again a genderless concept that involves jovial bro-yness mitigated by a fastidiousness and care that manifests in favoring luxurious materials for even the most fraternity-ish silhouettes, mature colors to tone down garments that would otherwise read as fuckboy-adjacent, and a wry penchant for PBR’s aesthetics.

Thank you for reading and to the people who submitted ideas for fits! I hope this helped a bit. Please let me know if it did (or SCREAM AT ME if it didn’t) at @humanrepeller on Instagram, like and share this post if you had a good time at any point in the past five minutes, and feel free to send more inquiries for HR to dutifully answer (hurry! I am making a Patreon soon and then submitting a request might cost a few bucks, so get ’em in free while you can)!

I hope your summer has had moments of euphoria and moments of healthy reckoning thus far.

❤ HR
