Any top 10 -- or in this case, top 50 -- list will inevitably generate controversy. Therefore, it would be prudent for the OP and Dieworkwear to clearly define "greatest" in the beginning of the article that they will be writing to minimize reader confusion and/or dissension. If greatest = gross revenue, then RL, Levis, Gap, and Zara ought to be the top ones. If greatest = most influential, then Savile Row tailors, with global adoption of the suit as de rigueur business...
To show his brilliance in re-branding himself and conveying his label as Waspy.Of course not, since everything is derivative to some extent. But to be considered as innovative, some newness has to be added to the existing paradigm. Armani's use of soft fabrics and low gorge in his suits, Versace's color contrast and printed silk shirts (god aweful, but innovative), Yamamoto's oversized look, Slimane's skinny suits, and Browne's short jackets all moved fashion forward --...
My first thought upon seeing this tie was that looks like a Missoni tie. Missoni is a high end Italian knitswear brand with sweaters typically selling for around $1K.Known for its vibrant color combinations and zig-zag motif, Missoni sweaters can sometimes be gaudy. But its more subdue ones are quite lovely.
If this list is ranked by the criterion who is the most financially successful menswear designer, then Ralph Lauren absolutely and irrefutably belongs at the top spot. If, on the other hand, the ranking is based on design innovation and influence on the fashion industry, R.L. do not even belong in the top ten. Mr. Ralph Lipschitz is a brilliant merchandiser and businessman, and his lines are loved by all segments of economical class. But a designer? Hardly. To wit: The...
I have worn the hell out of my Beaufort whenever I travel -- from the glacier in the Canadian Rockies duirng early winter, to the city streets in Europe in spring, summer and fall. It used to be my Burberry trench, but I found the Beaufort to be more versatile.Also, my rubber soled Ferragamo (not SF approved, I know) loafers which are convenient going thru airports and comfortable walking on cobble stone streets.Navy blazer and grey fannel pants also.
Sleeves too long, jacket too short.
I like mine.
You're welcome. Mine is a summer weight wool jacket, hence I paired it with cotton pants. Since it is still quite warm where I live, my heavier woolens are in the back of the closet and I did not feel like digging last night.Yours being a worsted wool, you can pair it with beige or navy cords.Cashmere Loro Piana jacket. Luciano Barbera shirt. Missoni scarf. B.B. navy cords.With Sulka light taupe wool pants.
charcoal is the obvious choice. But navy and Khaki will also work Brunello Cucinelli jacket. Dunhill pink with blue stripes shirt. Ferragamo tie. Robert Talbott p.s. Saks cotton pants. Borrelli shirt. Zegna tie. Faconnable p.s. Agnona Khakis
Had you read my first post carefully, you would have known I was referring to his tie knot being too small. For the record, I had edited my last post to clarify any confusion.
