I’m here to meet Abigail Glaum-Lathbury, who will give me a jumpsuit she made just for me that I will wear as my only article of clothing for the next three weeks. Abigail is one of two artists who comprise the Rational Dress Society, a collective committed to what the group calls “counter-fashion”—a critique of fashion and capitalism through political dress. Abigail and her partner in counter-fashion, Maura Brewer, have been wearing only jumpsuits for the past three years—to weddings, to job interviews, to teach their classes at art school, and to visit their families over Thanksgiving. Their closets are nearly empty: they each have three jumpsuits, a few jumpsuit-compatible sweaters, workout clothes, pajamas, and underthings—that’s it. They don’t have to buy new clothes or wonder how they’ll look in the culottes that have recently come into fashion. They never have to choose a new outfit because they’ve already picked the one they’ll wear forever.
The Rational Dress Society is calling on you, dear comrade! Help us Make America Rational Again! For more information about M.A.R.A., please visit www.jumpsu.it/mara
To support our ongoing initiative, Make America Rational Again, visit the America’s on Fire… SALE and buy a limited-edition print or tote bag.
Our mutual value is, for us, the value of our mutual JUMPSUITS.
The philosophers have only interpreted the world, the point is to change it with JUMPSUITS
I may hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, and criticize after dinner, all while wearing JUMPSUITS.
– Karl Marx
I’m comrade Maura.”
“I’m comrade Abigail. Together, we make JUMPSUIT, the open-source, ungendered monogarment to replace all clothes in perpetuity.”
