Nah, that's Chicago Guy 45.
It seems the NMWA customer could be categorized into one of two groups: Guys who wash shirts after every wear and guys who have never washed their jeans.
Looking sharp, Jeff. I like the idea of a one piece BD collar. The end result makes me think "louche American businessman on holiday in Capri." Though I must ask... what gives with the clip-ons? Y'all killing me with that noise.
They're as close to workwear as Derek can get before he's forced to change the name of his blog.
I'd say it wears cool, but really I've always thought its charm and utility lay more in its workhorse nature. Because it's cotton you can sweat right through it, wash it, and throw it back on (at least that was how it was originally intended). There are cooler-wearing fabrics to be sure.
I never really got the appeal of multiple platforms. If you have a blog, you have a blog. If you don't, you don't. I started mine as a dumping ground of inspiration; a landfill of excess. Replicating that real estate only deludes the convenience of aggregation. Plus I'm a firm believer that the world only needs so much of me. That said, if I was trying to monetize my hobby, build an image or launch a brand, I'd be everywhere and then some.
I think there is a fundamental difference between in-home parking for a car that is meant for regular (or even semi-regular) use and cars that are being displayed as art. If the cars aren't moving for months or years at a time (a la Ralphy-cakes), then I can see the logic behind wanting more of a showcase feel (much like you would with traditional art). But if you run the risk of asphyxiating your cat at the start of each daily morning commute, I really don't get the appeal.
Yeah, but those aren't the guys who park in their living room...
I imagine the owners of all those houses as try-hard divorcees who regularly drop some version of, "The car pulls out, but I never do."
The allure of bespoke is not just the pattern. In fact, most patterns are merely reference points. The true value of bespoke is that you get in-real-life advice and counseling from the cutter and tailor who will physically be making your garment. You also benefit from an iterative process in which tweaks can be made during the course of construction and finishing. When it comes to "true bespoke," you're paying far more for experience, judgement and a trained eye than you...
