Neil Steinberg has a good book about this (Hatless Jack). Hats have definitely been going out of fashion in North America, and most of the Western world, for the last seventy-five years or so. Part of it is that they're less necessary nowadays as people rely on cars and public transportation. Part of it is about how hats were seen as stodgy and conformist at some point, and post-WWII fashion valued the young rebel. Part of it is that fashion has become less and less...
Returns for store credit or exchanges only is the wackest thing in fashion right now
Maybe E.Tautz, Umit Benan, Lucio Vanotti, Second Layer, and Deveaux?
Thanks for snapping those photos!
I haven't sprayed a protectant on my suede five-zip, but I sprayed another suede jacket. I don't know if I would ever wear these out in the rain, tbh, but I think the protectant helps keep stains away (maybe from a spill or something).FWIW, I spoke to a cleaning expert who said spraying these things at home can be dangerous, since a glob of that stuff can spit out and stain the jacket. Prob best to heed that person's advice, but since I haven't had any issues spraying...
Stopped in on my friend Robert Geller to see if he's still telling people he's not that Robert Geller on Twitter. Was happy to see him being trolled by NMWA

Photo on their IG, but no brand info...
Isn't there room for both?Forgot to add, if I get de Redes, they won't be the original chisel toe model. They'd be round toe.RJ says this will make them camp mocs, but I don't really think the chisel toes are for me.
Even more "non-American StyleForum member.""You pay X amount for pants? I pay half that! All you have to do is hop on a plane and fly to Naples/ London/ Paris."
Maybe of interest to people in San Francisco. Britex is having a sale this coming week. 50% off all fabric purchases between $50 and $250; 30% off all notions and remnants. Sale is happening Monday Oct 10 and Tuesday Oct 11 from 10am till 6pm. IME, the store is good for more casual shirtings. Not so much for men's jacketings and suitings. But if you're interested in material for shirts and pajamas, it can be worth stopping by. Also a good source for buttons, although I...
