haha I kind of figured that you, artishad and bows did. I had a suspicion that you all thought I was a MC douche that wore ties and wanted to be James Bond.
Truth is even though some of my aesthetic is MC, I really feel much more comfortable on this side. I have always admired all things Yohji, Ann D, Margiela, Jil and all the next level designers, so hearing about clothes being a cm off always bored me to tears. I am just glad that we got over the point where some of you thought I was a JKissi copycat.
I've always thought you had a Bowie-like vibe going on, at least in spirit. Same with Barims. Respect the tassels.
I didn't really think they were douches. I kinda understood why there would have been any reluctance (If there was any. I might have imagined it) due to the beatings #menswear was taking at the time.
ah, that makes more sense. i probably trashed #menswear at some point. not sure why but i never really lumped you into that camp. always seemed clear that you have your own style and aren't just letting gq and jcrew dress you. by that i mean doing stuff like mixing in those yellow leather nigerian loafer-slippers. those things are weirdly awesome.
a few pages late, but phatguido's blog sucks. he's the worst of the fashion and the worst of the cycling worlds combined into one. it's painful to read.
To find anything good, though, you'd have to go back several years. It's like I said, once he got a job that didn't require he dress up, he pretty much stopped caring about clothing, and he developed this biking obsession. So I think his blog is now just about his personal life. He wasn't an amazingly inspiring dresser, but he always looked tasteful, and I appreciated his taste for a minimalist color pallet.
