Thanks for all the thumbs, everybody, and the kind words. Certainly if I've improved, it is owed in bulk to my participation in this group and the great feedback I've gotten.

It's your best fit yet and very inspirational to those of us who have yet to post here. At least it is for me.

Don't underestimate the role played by your willingness to listen to and implement advice. As a teacher, I can say it's not nearly as common as you might imagine. smile.gif

Typo aside: What moron wrote that tagline?  Show yourself, simpleton.  


All debate of this tagline aside, I would really like to see an in-depth discussion and analysis of Bowie's tailored clothing over the years.  

 

So much attention is paid to his (admittedly awesome but definitely coked-up) wild theatrical costumes, that it's mostly overlooked how often and well he did classic menswear.

 

Like, who were his tailors through the years?  Did he rely on fashion designers for this type of stuff, or did he go to the Row?  Tommy Nutter seems obvious for him at one point (his 1975 Grammy tux leaps to mind), but was he in fact going to Nutter?

 

If anyone's seen an article on this, definitely send it my way.

First day of Prince of Wales

 

 

 

@thefoxtooth I think I saw on Instagram that Bowie's last suit was made by Edward Sexton

 

erratum: I actually saw @Butler 's post where he was discussing this with Edward Sexton!

That looks fantastic, dude. The tie pairs really well with the suit.

We met Edward Sexton last week. I mostly spoke to his wife though, a really sweet lady. She told me that when mr Sexton worked with Nutter, they dressed most of the English rock-/pop stars, including Bowie.

Heh.  These days, given the cumulative indignities of the profession over the years, that’s actually become the default expression of the seasoned academic. 

 

It’s the smiles that are usually fake ... (:))

 

Cheers,

A more general thread devoted to the contribution to classic style of people from the entertainment industry would be of interest.
