saw some SA at the brick n mortar last week. tight italian suit and fucking bright blue suede slippers with a buckle thing. ..and no fucking socks. brodude was walking around like he was the shit. srsly, what's up with these SA's at snooty shops like that who only work on commission ignoring customers? "who helped you today?" "nobody" "oooh sorry!"
Getting really tired of bloggers using terms like "stunt" and "dope" to describe #menswear brands and pieces. I have met a lot of you, and you are all pretty nice guys, and articulate, so seriously, find a new schtick.
At the same time, it's at least more amusing to read than the Monocle "I'm traveling the world with a broom handle wedged firmly in my bum" tone has been old for a while.
Maybe the two groups should get together and figure something out.
They're the same people 5 yrs appart. The same white middle-class dudes brought in on pop-culture who were illiminated by menswear during university or right after and now roll their pants for that disarmingly casual and fun take on timeless classics.
So I just learned today that the S2A blazer that I got a bit ago can't be altered because the button holes are too close to the cuff of the sleeve. The sleeves, being too long, need to be shortened. If I wanted to get the sleeves shortened, it would require either shortening at the shoulder (about $100, just more than a third of what the jacket actually cost), or having to deal with some unsightly torn-up fabric.
I could probably just get the body and everything else taken care of, but the sleeves would still be kind of long. Has anyone else dealt with this before? I really don't want to sell the jacket because it's really cool (returning it might not be an option, and sizing down wouldn't work), but I don't think I could wear it as is...
Visually I dig monk straps, suede single monks in particular, worn with a suit. When you actually need a suit, not worn to fashion week with a "blogger blue" double breasted blazer and jeans.
I don't even own anything double breasted, but I'll get something, and some monkstrap boots (yeah, I see your mind being blown) for the next Pitti show just to show you how I roll, and to impress bitches.
I sorta feel like doing this, tbh, but making the proportions so off trend that no one has any idea whether I'm ahead or behind. So, tight blue blazer, but then nearly Yojhi baggy jeans, but very tapered, or maybe super sagged, highly tapered, jeans, and then monkstrap boots.
