Would anyone happen to have any suggestions for where to get some linen, or cotton-linen pocket squares with contrasting borders? I've got a few from Kent Wang that have a piece of extra cloth stitched around the edge as a border - I'm not looking for that type. What I'm looking for are pocket squares which are made from a piece of linen (in, say, white) where the edge has been dyed a different colour (say, sky blue) for a margin of about 1cm around the edge of the...
I can appreciate some SW&D looks, and I'm partial to wearing selvedge denim jeans + hiking boots + OCBD + A2 jacket on the weekends, which isn't really streetwear but isn't classic menswear, either. However, a lot of streetwear (like a lot of haute couture nowadays) seems more like some sort of joke perpetrated on the general public by fashion designers - a sort of performance art, perhaps - rather than clothing that's meant to be worn by most people. That, and the...
I think that you should just call or e-mail P.Johnson to ask. If you e-mail them, send them a link to the Tumblr post.Anyway, after your post in the Australian Member's thread, a bit of detective work by iSurg and Sartorial Scum showed that it may well be one of these shirts:http://www.pjohnsonshop.com/collections/shirts/products/navy-airtex-giro-inglese-shirtHowever, the best way to be sure is to talk with them by phone or e-mail.
That's actually very good.Here's a contribution from the UK's The Guardian newspaper, on foreign jokes:http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/19/best-jokes-young-people-around-worldSpeaking of "Days", today is Harmony Day, so I'm wearing a pair of orange trousers to celebrate.
Was that comment tongue-in-cheek, Foxie?Perhaps the opinion piece might have mentioned blogs outside Australia because fashion is global, because we take fashion cues from the way that people dress in many other countries, and because this thing called the internet enables us to easily read things written by people living in countries outside Australia?When you're thinking about items of clothing that you'd like to purchase, I'd hazard a guess that you don't just restrict...
Agreed - the men's annex of Isetan Shinjuku is a fantastic place.If you've got limited time in Tokyo, then Shinjuku and Ginza/Marunouchi are the two main places to go with regard to menswear. They're great places to simply walk around and observe from the street, and there are plenty of great stores, too. Takashimaya in Shinjuku is also good, but it's over on the other side of Shinjuku station from Isetan men's annex.Isetan men's annex really stands out from other places...
You Aeropress guys might be interested in this profile of former Stanford professor Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aeropress (and also of the flying disc version of the frisbee): http://priceonomics.com/the-invention-of-the-aeropress/ The Fairfax press has a column today on the rise of men's style bloggers: http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/executive-style/style/blogs/stitched-up/the-rise-of-the-mens-style-blogger-20140320-353xp.html As usual, it's pretty shallow and...
ovlov, I've got several in a variety of patterns and colours, from a variety of places (Brooks Brothers, RL Polo, Drake's and Vanda, off the top of my head).There's conservative paisley, semi-conservative paisley, and not-at-all conservative paisley.Here are a few examples, taken from the Ben Silver website for convenience:- Conservative:http://www.bensilver.com/Printed-Paisley-Tie-in-Chocolate,25297.htmlhttp://www.bensilver.com/Handrolled-Neat-Tie-in-Red,25293.html-...
Really?Maybe I'm thinking of a different Airtex, as the only Airtex I know is the polyester fabric used to make athletic clothing, like basketball singlets.Patrick's shirt doesn't look like that - the fabric's much more matt and looks much more tightly-knitted.
I don't know where Patrick's shirt came from, but you could always give P.Johnson a call to ask.Alternatively, Kamakura Shirts (a Japanese company, called Maker's Shirt in Japan) sells knit shirts with both standard and button-down collars, made from cotton pique fabric:http://shop.kamakurashirts.com/index_en_usd_16.htmlhttp://shop.kamakurashirts.com/index_en_usd_17.htmlKamakura make fantastic shirts for their price point.
