I started to like tailored clothing last year. I think it's all about cut, fabric, color, combination, metrical, and timeless style inlove.gif

Why don't try brands like Lanvin. They have both tailored clothing, good design and good shoes/sneakers.

I like to keep my tailored clothes completely separate from my casual stuff. Long ago when I was younger I was able to make a lot of Raf and Jil Simons work for me as work clothing/biz casual type looks, but wearing a proper real suit, shirt, and tie is much more satisfying, I feel. That grey area between dressed up tailored wear and full casual has gone blank for me now, I don't really do the in-between.

Yeah this ^^

I really dont like Lanvin that much, its not really my thing. I dont really want to wear tailored clothing by a designer, I sorta want it tailor made for me, bespoke or really good MTM.

Pretty much MC, but much more restrained, quite a strict colour pallette. I really dont like how italian MC has become. Im Austrlian, and we are a Commonwealth Nation, which probably reflects alot on this. For one I dont really like brown shoes, two, I'd be happy wearing navy / charcoal / grey suiting for ever. I dont really like loud sportcoats.

I'm an engineer at a tech company and so pretty much everyone just wears t-shirts, jeans and sneakers to work... Whenever I tuck in my shirt I'll almost immediately get digs from others about "why I'm dressed up"...

Like others said though, I think I'd get sick of having to wear a suit to work every single day after a month or something

I thought I sized the ToJ1 too small, I was wrong luckily. Will get pics when it's not pitch black out while I'm at home. It's due to rain today, rain just adds to the leather's character right? No harm done?

Razele I have to say that I don't see many people around Brisbane wearing the sort of stuff you do. Am I just looking in the wrong places?
post #12324 of 39321
Nah man Brisbane is shit, Australia in general is shit clothes wise in general but Queensland is bad.

Rick retail is insane, and our sales are never that good here, so way higher prices + way lower sales = everyone wears cheap flannels, black jeans and vans.

Ironically when I first met my girl she liked me because of a really nice black Schneider cardigan and blue hidden placket buttonup I was wearing shog[1].gif

they have incredible import taxes in Australia. Growing up, even the cheapest of Nike sneakers were like $100, Jordans were something like $500, $700, I can't remember, but something incredible for the time. This was at a time when fully detached houses on lots in nice locations by the beach in Australia were still valued around $100,000 - now those homes easily surpass a million. There's definitely an economic dynamic down there that is gonna make buying Stephan Schneider and Rick Owens a bit of a costly affair.

dude, 25 is way too early to be throwing in the hat on wearing streetwear. You guys should want to be off work by 5 and enjoying your beer at the pub in streetwear+denim til you're like 40, then you can go decide which way you want to go stylistically. When I am 65 I will probably dress the same I do now, if I live that long. In 2046, I will say "you muthafuckaz know what this jacket is? It's the TOJ MDR from 2011!!!" and all of the kids in self-lacing Nikes and hoverboards will roll their eyes at me.
