While online forums are useful information sources, back in my day ( yes i am being facetious) most of what I learnt about men's fashion came from movies, and magazines. However I was lucky that I dated a run of girls who studied fashion at RMIT and had good picture books of men's fashion spanning several decades. My look if its anything is a variation of 1950's noir, albeit with more colour these days. i think I have moved past black as a creative statement.
Mind you the New Romantic movement was big on style and most of us older igents who hail form south of the border would remember the Mod revival in Melbourne in the early 80's, never really happened in Sydney. That was pure style all about face, the girls were cute.
Dressing well is an art and its something that takes time to learn and the pockets to indulge one fancies and on the weekend I will behave like a sloth if circumstances require it.
Oddly when I see well groomed and dressed young gents in Canberra I just wonder what APS level they are at.
