Did I dream it in a fevered state, that he once graced us with a picture of unlaced trainers, as if at ease?

I have the painted linen GATS on ice just to look at. I might even have a pair of burgundy vandals somewhere that I got from YOOX circa 2010

I wanted it to be clear that people hate you because you are an insufferable moron.

Glenn Belverio has a few posts about LabelKing on Diane Pernet's blog. Apparently LabelKing took Belverio to a North Korean restaurant.

I had known Jeffrey Ying virtually from the Hintmag.com message boards since the early '00s (his handle was "Incroyable") so it was a pleasure to finally meet him in real life. Jeffrey lives in a glamorous penthouse in Beijing that's festooned with mink duvets, rare liquors and exotic penis bones. Here he is at his bar proudly displaying his walrus penis bone.

If I'm posting in the wrong thread then sorry and tell me where I should go.

I'm enrolling in college next September in a cold-ass part of the US and I want to get a solid pair of boots to keep me warm and dry during the winters while of course remaining stylish. I want to adopt a "uniform" of raw denim/chinos and OCBD's that can easily layer with sweaters and the like. I was thinking about something like this.

Those could be good, but if your budget is limited, you'd probably be better off getting two pairs of boots instead of a fancy pair from Carmina. Water and snow are hard on boots, so you want to give them a day of rest in between each wearing.

Meermin's boots can be had for about $200 nowadays with the Euro to USD exchange rate. Just get something with a studded Dainite or Commando sole.

Because his outfits were great, totally fun, fine, complicatedly laid out and all. His sense of style did not make me envy the man, as it does with some. I realized, it was because he was completely fashion obsessed and it showed.

 

Next, I determined this: No matter what your style, you've got to make it a nearly-effortless distilled essence. Otherwise, what impresses people won't be anything more personal than a shared taste for ice cream flavors.

 

You´re thinking of "sprezzatura". There´s people here who swear by that way of living, but they won´t just come out and tell you ´cause when they do they´re usually kicked out and sent to Classic Menswear.

Does "no shirt, no shoes, no service" still apply if you're wearing a blazer? You can find out for us Regis!

Yeah, that's it isn't it. Thanks for clarifying.

 

 

I guess style is a bit like religion, everyone's got their own set of beliefs. Some regurgitate while others do it their own way. Some enjoy a little point-counterpoint. And some are straight up zealots. But none of it is inherently wrong.

 

Except yoga pants in public.

 

Edit:

@Fuuma - You are bang on, mate. After thinking about it, I must concede to your point #1 re:the context in which my impressions were formed. As to point #3, very eloquently stated and certainly food for thought. I suppose how restrained or overt a person is in the expression of their "stylistic obsessions" is not a matter for objective approval or disapproval. - Rather, we should look at the effectiveness with which they achieve what they've set out to. Jeff certainly does that in spades. Thanks for engaging; I learned something today. Right then, back to CM for me.

Two Meermin dainite in brown and commando in black would make a pretty nice boot rotation. BTW even cheap boots can last a long time, just threw away a pair of Loakes beaters I had for around 10 yrs.

"Hey guys, I'm doing sprezzatura right now."

A few things you'll note about the motorcycle story:

1) He said he didn't find him stylish, this is hopefully not a crime, lots of great people aren't stylish, here and elsewhere. He's a little bit exalted in the way he presented things but if you carefully parse the motorcycle story, all he is saying is that he doesn't like the lame kid on the court with the pricey dunks. Of course I'd argue that this had nothing to do with his former post as style is obviously the encounter of a morphology, garments and signifiers, if the person doesn't fit at all in the equation, of course it is going to be lame. This has nothing to do with a passion for style or being effortless.

2) There is nothing in it to say both drivers aren't passionate about driving, considering the skill of the apparently effortless one, it would make sense to say he is probably quite passionate about it.

3) This ties in with a common misunderstanding of spazzatura: the courtier is supposed to know and care deeply about style, what must look effortless is his look and this requires practice.

4) So maybe the idea is to choose carefully the garments you acquire and how they'll integrate then wear them without much care. I do that, not sure it makes me stylish or not, maybe just lazy.

"Spazzatura."
