I think the idea of considering skin tone in dressing is way overrated, but as they say -- YMMV.
I think we probably have different tastes. I would go for brown or grey, but I imagine you would consider that too boring.
Agree with Arch. As for the red sport coat, that'll make you look like a hotel doorman, IMO.
Anyone have an opinion on when a flared skirt would be advantageous? I know some houses offer this as part of their house cut, but I've never seen a sihlouette where a tighter skirt wouldn't look better. I think @dopey uses some tailors who cut a flared skirt. Would be good to get his thoughts. Anyone have an opinion?
I took the quote a bit differently. She's said in many other interviews that she takes the business side of things seriously. PLAY, as g transistor noted, is basically a money grab, and she's done collabs with H&M. I think her point was that her design process isn't focused on maximizing profits. The fashion world is mostly looking at trends, and often focuses on making clothes that flatter the body (this is esp true for women). Rei's work, on the other hand, is a lot more...
That's basically ~25% of grad students at Berkeley and Stanford though.
I have a few Lock & Cos. A soft, unstructured trilby named The Rambler, and a couple of newsboy caps.FWIW, they're all the same tagged size, but I find the fit to vary a little between all three. If I could choose again, I would have tried a slightly bigger size on the caps.IMO, you should take your reg size. Sizing down might throw off the proportions, and nothing looks worse than a hat that's slightly too small for a person's head.Also, pocketsquare guy has a thread on...
Ah, that's too bad. Let me know if you end up finding a good and reliable source. FWIW, I've gotten some OK casual fabrics at Rosen & Chadick in NYC (they take phone orders, and will send swatches), but a lot of the stuff is only marginally better than what you'd find at any good shirtmaker. That is, lots of casual fabrics for the business class set. Not bad stuff, but not really what I'm looking for.
Great to see you on this side of the board, Gaz.Curious, does your shirtmaker have a lot of casual shirtings like that? I've been trying to find more casual shirtings to bring to my shirtmaker, but have had limited success. Was that a fabric you found, or was it offered through your tailor? Do you remember what mill and book it's from?
You know that dude's original full name was Donald MacDonald, but he shortened it to Don MacDonald after being given some grief. Personally, I would have gone the other way and tried to get the honorific title of Don. So Don Donald MacDonald.
