Read the criteria of the original post. Then read the articles throughout the blog. They are quite good and insightful. It will take a while to read all of them.

I have edited the OP with lots of content under the scrutiny of my editorial eye. Please revisit the first post for the goods, written off the dome in a single sitting as is my usual wont.

Agree with you with qualifications, see my added remarks in the OP

Gentleman's Gazette - good for historical details and in-depth discussion of the basics.

Made by Hand - great in-depth tailoring blog with garment tear downs and analysis. Alas, few posts as of late; @jefferyd must be too busy at his day job.

Thanks, I will definitely include Mr. Diduch's blog.

While Gentleman's Gazette has some book reviews, I'm not sure -- I feel it's more designed to drive conversions to his webstore and e-book. Not much in the way of original content.

 

Nothing on the Instagram front, lads?

On a related note, any recommendations for apps that can aggregate this lot? I have tried Newsify and Flipboard - both are unreliable when it comes to Tumblr and Instgram content

I have tried almost every newsreader out there. By apps, I assume you mean for smartphone, not a desktop application.

For iOS, I recommed Silvio Rizzi's Reeder. The great advantage is that you can build your own local list of feeds and do not have to rely on some here today, gone tomorrow cloud service.  Tumblr will be no problem. You might need to prepend http:// to the URL.

 

Slight problem of late: there was a workaround in the Instagram API where you could scrape an RSS feed out of it and pop it into a newsreader. See here: http://risok.ie-t.net/apps/insta/

Unfortunately, as of a few weeks ago, that has stopped working. Sadly, it seems that Instagram is being treated as black box.

Great, thanks!

http://nomanwalksalone.tumblr.com/ - blog affiliated to the eponymous SF affiliate and store, but its contributors include RJman of ASW and Unbel also of ASW and his dead-and-buried Ivorystyle blog.

 

RJman also has his own blog now - http://obeyfeline.tumblr.com/

 

The great Bernhard Roetzel still blogs @ http://bernhardroetzelblog.blogspot.co.uk/ - mainly in German but there used to be an English site which hasn't been updated in a while.

http://dieworkwear.com/ - ofc is a treasure-trove - admittedly with an ironic name as a considerable amount  of what he blogs about is essentially workwear.

Nice @sprout2 

 

A lot of members post now on IG instead of in WAYWRN (though some still do both)...I think that list of SFers with IG accounts could be quite endless, so at the risk of hurting feelings, perhaps list IG's of "old hands" who used to be active here (say pre 2010 or earlier)? Some are more "lifestyle" focused, but some center their posts on tailoring. The same is true of TUMBLR

 

Vox is one, but there are others...

Die workwear's blog should be listed. Original and interesting content that is reliably well-written.

Without question. Much of what I've learned over the last few years I've learned from Derek's blog.

I don't know this for sure, but I always assumed the "die" in "dieworkwear" referred to the German word for "the". Not die as in the English definition. Maybe DWW himself can clarify.
