HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2595

post #38911 of 44030

Been a while...Fresco, shantung, "chambray?" and wool and a silk square. Shirt is Luxire chambray, but looks more like an end on end to me...either way not a bad cloth.


 

Watch, texture and full fit... (Click to show)

Best,

I just can't think of an American equivalent, though I see the Beckett & Robb guys reblogged regularly

Same with bloggers. Mostly European.

The most popular American blog I can think of, PTO, has no single personality (to its credit, maybe). Certainly no iGent icon.

Please note, I am not suggesting Anglophone countries dress poorly, though I suppose an argument could be made for America. Don't know I'd buy that.

Just that there are relatively few American iGent icons given out wealth, population, and level of technology. None of the people I can think if with significant cross-national appeals and followings are American.

Those are just your style icons, not mine. I think Liverano makes great garments, but those guys do nothing for me and many others. And the BNTailor imitation strikes me as charmless and boring even if technically serviceable. Here is what I see living in NY: there are a lot of well-dressed people out there who aren't posting on bulletin boards and aren't reading blogs. And they don't sell clothes. They aren't playing dress up and they aren't wearing what they wear to get thumbs up from their buddies on Styleforum. They do however work in jobs where appearance matters and so they dress in certain ways for certain circumstances. And they look great. They've never heard of any of the people that you mention. They just took hints from others senior to them in the same circumstance. Again - your just extrapolating from your own experience. Anyone wearing a Neapolitan suit with spalla camicia looks out of place on Wall Street or in any other business capital outside of Italy. So from my perspective of someone who dresses in a certain way because the context demands it and not just for kicks, anyone in a garment like that isn't a style icon. Those are guys on the internet trying to sell the latest fad.

 

 

 

OMG you're onto us.:wow:

The people who you see in real life are totally irrelevant to this discussion. From the outset, I was wondering about (and specified) iGents. People with online presences focused on tailored clothing. That's all this discussion has been about. Why there are few, if any, Anglophone (but amended to American and maybe Canadian) iGents with significant presence.

 

It's a mystery in a celeb worshipping  culture like the States, but maybe agiffy (unintentionally) is onto it with that aversion to male vanity, peacocking and style-for-it's-own-sake.  

 

In Oz too it's about rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done, bugger what u look like.    Maybe if Vox was European he wouldn't bother with anonymity.

On Sunday, my wife and I attended the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island.  We had a great time. We also had the pleasure of meeting Upr_Crust and his husband.  Lovely couple.

I would've guessed twill from those diagonals, but I am not yet wise in the ways of cloth.
