Not offensive at all. That is what this dialogue is for. I feel like the bow tie thing is a fad for younger black men, in the same way you see younger white guys with gingham checked shirts and a 1.5" black tie. But yes I agree I do feel like I have to be more conservative with my colors lately, and have always wondered if I would be looked at differently if I were white wearing certain items. Who knows. I shouldn't let perception Rob me of my sartorial joy.
Good stuff.I was so hurt when Bill's closed down.I can smell and taste it now.motherf**k
These.They really aren't a wallet buster.and a staple item.and I don't own any loafers. Please give me thy strength oh mighty and glorious Mars
VcU is pumping a bit of revenue into the city......and hipsters. More beer, donuts, beards, bikes, and artisinal *insert food product* than you can shake a stick at. If by good pizza you must mean Belmont.
yes Good ol Richmond
Also would like to mention my hatred for this new anti fedora campaign pushed by the likes of the pinterest using buzzfeed reading sort. It being said a guy isa douche for wearing a fedora, or someone to avoid in dating hahaha. Unless of course you are attending one of those good awful Gatsby themed parties in a fedora from your local thrift shop with prom-esque waistcoats and red polyester ties. God I hate my generation. I need another cigar
THIS. The "church culture", menswear taking backseat to streetwea for young black men, unless in a university setting ala Howard with guys peacocking in loud bow ties and loafers. As stated in a recent thread I don't even wear my bow ties anymore in fear of being lumped into this category. Before I joined SF I considered my dad to be well dressed.he grew up in the 50_70's area in nyc, so exposure helped him out, but of course styles changed racially around the 70's.I often...
So glad I lit up this cigar.You've given me some great reading material! Don't know how I missed those threads but thanks AC! And just another thought,I feel media is a driving force in how cultures dress (musicians, the Steve Harvey collection *chuckle*) People take direction by what is fed to them.I also know many women who style men or for magazines and their idea of what looks good is different from ours. I must admit that before I joined SF several years ago, I wore...
Not to add race into the mix, but as a black guy I've found myself hating bow ties (mostly because of the nation of Islam comments I would receive as jokes) but also because of many other young black males who consider themselves well dressed are adorned in considerably loud ones. Maybe im too concerned with perception and being placed into the "hip black guy who wears a suit and bow tie category", but as a result I have many beautiful Domenico Spano and Charvet bow ties...
Greetings Just wondering anyone has tried to create and pitch any menswear accessories before? Have you ever reached out to any SF affiliates with ideas or potential collaborations and did they ever come into fruition? I have been working on a few things but worry that they may already resemble existing items but with a different function. Been working on hand rolled PS's but still perfecting my sewing skills before working with any quality fabrics. Also been doing...
