"Wear It Well"

The following is an excerpt from Bill Strickland's blog, "Sitting In," on Bicycling Magazine's online edition. I adore the poetic prose Strickland uses to elegantly state the obvious: greatness requires hard work:

"Beauty by itself isn’t enough. The appeal of the well-worn drives our culture to pay extra for jeans that have been overwashed and custom-distressed before reaching the store shelves, and for shirts with paint streaks artfully pre-slopped on, and for factory-frayed sport coats. All it takes to buy a worn look is greed or gullibility.

To possess it, you have to earn it."
