Posts by Biscione

Others might disagree with me, but I feel that double breasted suits should be very well tailored (with a tight waist, arms, etc.). I also feel that summer suits should be looser fits. As such, I simply wouldn't like the aesthetic of a double-breasted seersucker; it would either be a good DB fit and the seersucker would look silly, or a good seersucker fit and the DB would look silly. Another issue; I happen to detest the look of a DB jacket when it's unbuttoned. To me,...
I've never been crazy about Browne or Black Fleece, but I find this new collection quite exceptional. Probably because three summer looks that I love wearing (blue pincord suit, stone cotton suit, and suits with t-shirts) are amongst the collection. I thought that I'd post some more pictures to initiate further discussion. I also think that this sweater-jacket is great. Thoughts?

All of the dressers idolised here (Duke of Windsor, Agnelli, Cary Grant, etc.) were fashionable for their time. The examples...
I own a loden cape. I wear it whenever and wherever I feel like it. It's too easy to get caught up in thoughts about how other people will judge certain sartorial quirks, but the truth is that in reality wearing a cape with taste and style gets a tiny bit of mockery and a great deal of interest, compliments, smiles, etc. As long as you look nice, nobody (worthwhile) would be repelled. It's also extremely fun to wear; extreme physical grace somehow comes the moment that...
I don't see a single thing there that I would consider owning. The shoes are fine, I suppose, but everything else seems tacky. Some of those sports jacket fabrics are reminiscent of bad 80's men's fashion. They probably should get a better stylist. But then, I've never seen any appeal in Oxxford.
I like the new BF collection a lot, but all those shoes are pretty terrible.
In terms of the arts, it's far too difficult to choose. In terms of clothing, I think that the present day is great. Although I love wearing suits and sports jackets, there are certain days when I feel like dressing down, and certainly when going out to do errands or casual socialising I'd normally just wear jeans and a sweater. In the 20's, 30's, 40's, etc. that wouldn't have been socially acceptable. The rigidity of dress codes is a lot more romantic in theory than...
Boring ties are the best ties, IMO. Same thing with shirtings. I prefer for eccentricity and vibrancy to come out through less-boring suits and shoes, as well as tasteful accessories. I really dislike the look of a loud shirt and tie worn with a sober suit and bland shoes.
Wow I only just realised that this was an actual contest thing. I'm shocked that I made it (I imagine because a great deal of the competition were also judging), but very flattered anyway. I voted for Baron, because it's a very smart and classic look. I loved the other picture LabelKing put up, though.

I think that many people posting here are overly critical of the way these men dress... I think that a great deal of their outfits would be praised if they were posted in the 'what are you wearing today' thread.
