I like the DIY aesthetics of making things for yourself and mending what you have as it falls apart. I keep a small sewing kit in my bag with some patches in it when I'm away from home for that reason. Spray paint works pretty well on cotton too. Some day I might decide that I want a pocket in a particular spot, and then I hand stitch one into place. And the place where I live is the same way: a large assemblage of found or purchased structural and decorative materials, evolving piecemeal over years along with the plants. It's more interesting to me to grow into your own style that suits you through a sequence of experiments and experiences than to adopt vague cultural signifiers like "punk" or "anarchy" or whatever.
