A Suitable Wardrobe - Page 3

post #31 of 51
To echo what has been said, my periodic disagreement with his opinions provide a good counterbalance to my sometimes trendy tendencies (aka the sartorialist).

Will's site is the best on men's style by far.

Terrific blog & I LOVE THE ILLUSTRATIONS!!! The old Esky pics are fantastic and inspiring.

Sure, pics & descriptions from & about the "Golden Era" of men's wardrobes can seem fussy, but one must know the rules to know how to artfully break them. Jazz is cool because it bends standard traditions of music; however, without the standards to refer to, jazz would merely be a cacophony of random noise. Similarly, a man's rig is best when attention is paid to the rules and a dash of sprezzatura is added.

A long overdue "Bravo" to you, Will! Keep up the good work.

Will's site is my favorite blog on clothes and I subscribe to it. I really love the AA/Esky pix. I have learned a lot.

Yes, I read ASW quite frequently. I must admit though that while I agree wholeheartedly with nearly everything, I personally only never find anything I find remarkably new or revelatory. Mostly, it is a just an affirmation of how I also see things already. And that is why I read it.

I love Will's sense of style and the way he clearly enjoys life. The photos and his sense of humor contribute to making his site a classic that I keep coming back to.

It is a great site for clothes. But I also enjoy it when he talks about other things I enjoy, such as traveling and drinking.

Will's words are authentic, which comes through. The gold standard.

ASW is really swell. I refer people to it all the time. It is almost what I would do, except not quite so daring, if I had the budget and the figure. I wish I could get those socks as surgical support hose...

I don't know if one really needs a svelte figure to follow Will's precepts...

I hope not. I haven't been all that svelte for a few years myself.
