Read this interview with Bruce Boyer.  He gets it and articulates it well.

Actually looks like their brand list is less interesting than it was.

I think is really interesting that Boyer's connects Cary Grant and Castiglione's idea of sprezzutura. According to this post on sprezzutura

http://tuttofattoamano.blogspot.com/2015/06/sprezzatura-great-philological-debate.html
Quote:
. . . there are two aspects to be considered for sprezzatura. The first is the concept of "hiding the art," to make the contrived appear natural. The key is appearance. Castiglione is not supporting naturalism here -- he doesn't encourage the courtier to "be himself", he's encouraging the courtier to make himself a better courtier through intense training and then to present that person as if it were the natural self.

According to Boyer, that is exactly what Grant did, he made himself better through training.
Quote:
Cary Grant started off as Archibald Leach, a child from a lower-middle class family in Bristol, England. Consciously modeling himself on several successful, sophisticated celebrities, he eventually became the suave actor we recognize as Cary Grant. Of course he was smart enough to know his persona was consciously constructed, as he sometimes replied to strangers who said, "I wish I were Cary Grant", by saying, "Me too."

Any interview that ends with BB asking "what's a TBS code?" is gold.

Yeezy prices are cray cray. Only really cared about the tanks but I don´t see them up.

"Sweatshirts are fucking important... That might sound like the funniest quote ever. How can you say all this stuff about running for president in 2020 and then say sweatshirts are important? But they are. Just mark my words. Mark my words like Mark Twain."

^ do you have a little rat arm/leg ?

Its always such a relief.

Just got a RO heavy calf stooges jacket, this thing is incredible. Im a little concerned as to how it will effect my future bank account and wardrobe, but plan on getting a couple ricky staples on B&S/groiled to balance it out. I feel like the stooges is a "safe" enough style that doesnt veer too far into the severe end of the spectrum.
