Yes, Marlene was beautiful, as was Diana. Do you know if either woman dressed like this often, or only occasionally, say for a movie role or to make a statement/cause a stir?

The nice thing about being me is I have experienced several stages. I was 6"2 and 185 for several years and could bench press 275 three times, before putting on a good bit of weight during my first year of marriage from ceasing to weight lift and not recognizing the caloric content of hard alcohol, and getting up to 225 in 2007. I stopped lifting weights around 2010 as it was not helping me lose weight, and I wanted to put my attention on running. 155 is my ideal, and would put me at less than 8% body fat. I am 165ish right now. I wish I had less muscle than I do because it doesn't help my distance running much, or goal of a sub 2:45 marathon or life goal of sub 2:30. 155-160 would be a healthy weight, 148 would be a twig, but that is exactly what "race weight" is. There is a reason all the vast majority of the elite male marathoners are between 120-130ish, with a 1.88-1.90 lbs per inch ratio. Having been relatively strong, then obese (50+ lbs overweight), and now somewhat slim, I would take who I am now in a heartbeat, which consequentially allows me to have a low resting heartbeat, as well as a healthy heartbeat. Do you understand person who criticizes without divulging their own personal information as well to compare? 

 

I am well aware of the fact that style changes throughout history and did not state the opposite, in fact I took 90 credits worth in college. The ideal masculine and feminine form is the ideal personal form, filtered through my personal taste, experience, and education etc; this is basic philosophy. Everything I write here is opinion, well to me conviction, to you opinion. And what you write, may be conviction to you, but is only opinion to me. And really, there are only about three people on this site whose opinions really matter to this site.

I dunno. I'm 6'1 and 225 and my last physical worked out just fine for me.

Then again I like to enjoy my life, and not settle for a piece of celery and 6oz of water for lunch.

Being a dietary vegan, and running many miles per week helps perfect my masculine body. MTM is really quite easy and can be affordable, as I do it for all my shirts as my yearly spending budget is not large, between being a doctoral student, and paying off loans for my three master's degrees (I must be a real moron!). I don't know what the case is for the person you mentioned, lean/obese/whatever, but MTM can handle most body sizes. On the collars, did you ever think that the reason shirts designed for females lack collars is because either a collar designed for a tie is not flattering to the female face, and or too private/prep school uniform? A quick google image search for Esther Quek showed quite horrible less than desirable/scarcely feminine taste in apparel, a Sharon Stone-esque (read looks good on no female, and very few males) hairstyle, and colors that are very jarring to the eye. I would like to meet a man whose feminine ideal is someone like Esther Quek.

You remind me of this one chap who was claiming that the internet would need 5 people with bats to take him down because he was so tough and so muscular. Do you also get your towels MTM to jerk off in the mirror to your sheer perfection? I reckon you're the apotheosis of masculinity. Women want you and men want to be you. Hell, I am heterosexual, but I am now desperately awaiting to try men just so that I can ascend into your strata of fantasy and reach your godly level.

Thanks! The Narrows wasn't "fun," per se, but was totally worth the sights and memories.

Which boots, lol? My desert boots are the Allen Edmonds Mojave. The river boots, I don't recall the brand; rentals from Zion Adventure Co.

I've never heard of Marlene Dietrich, but some of her outfits on this page are awesome. Thanks for the link, UC!!

Shoe problem solved indeed. Although I still love my loafs, not gonna lie. 

 

I'm not bothered by any of sir whatever's ignorant comments. No worries. I've run a successful menswear blog for years that was noted by Nickelsoon Wooster as a blog to watch. I now own my own custom menswear shop, so I think i'm doing alright for myself :fistbump: 

 

again, i appreciate everyone having my back!

Start with this, perhaps: 

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0020697/

 

Some iconic images of late 1920s European apparel there, from the university to the cabaret (and back).

 

Cheers,

The tie is a navy knit, and the shit is in fact an oxford tattersall. Been needing to purchase a solid navy tie for awhile now (i agree with the white bar statement), just haven't gotten around to it just yet.

Is that Dunhill? In which case, did you buy it from me? It was lovely.

Being who I am, enables me to tolerate someone like this.  

And yours are?
