Permanent Style Vs A Suitable Wardrobe? - Page 2

post #16 of 76
ASW. Great help on gaining a perspective on building a funtional, fun wardrobe as opposed to the haphazard collection of garments path I had been on for years.

ASW partisan, as well.

If I had to choose I prefer ASW, but I enjoy Permanent Style as well. They provide different points of view which I appreciate. One thing Will does better than almost anybody else is post every day at 10AM EDT. I appreciate that (and understand it's not a realistic expectation for most blogs).

Now, what else could possibly have been a more perfect first response to this thread.




I've been a daily reader of ASW since I found out about it, and enjoy it quite a bit. I had to laugh a bit when I realised that Will and I own the same tie (on the far right http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/...han-sorry.html ) but the odds of us ending up at the same garden party are pretty slim so I think we're both okay there.

ASW is for advanced users
PS is for beginners

That is the distinction

ASW is the first thing I check when I go online. Will is a bespoke clothing customer and knowledgeable on RTW and MTO/MTM stuff too.

PS is a good read too...but as you notice, the author is only now personally exploring the bespoke arena.

ASW's author has been burned and has made some good purchases. This insight is invaluable.

I agree. I wish Will would explore his topics in more depth. Perhaps he should spend less time running his business and more time writing for our amusement.

I like both alot. However, Will @ ASW told me that he sells G&G shoes and therefore works for them. So when I see lots of posts about G&G it makes me think it is for a $ reason. I generally like ASW but feel there is a focus on certain brands.

Personally, I would like to see him meet and interview William Lobb (of John Lobb), George Glasgow (of Cleverley) or Edward Green e.t.c.....

I feel that with Permanent Style, he gives everyone a look and talks about his "general" experience rather than trying to sell something.

This is not an attack on Will, because I like ASW. More like constructive criticism.

Lots of posts about G&G because that's what I buy for myself. If you do a search or two you'll see interviews with the other makers.

You should consider looking at Anderson & Sheppard, Huntsman, Cleverley, Sean O'Flynn, John Lobb......

I think it would be interesting. All of these companies have introduced either 1) new items 2) new shops / moved 3) new lines......and no mention on your site.....

I have done several searches and they are all out dated. Don't take this as a negative comment, just something to think about in the future.....

I think the answer is we need a Will but based in London

ASW gets my vote but PS is also useful.

This Style Forum newbie prefers ASW, while reading both and many more.
