I am getting sick of these cat whisker creases at the crotch of my suit pants.
How do you deal with this problem? What fabric should I select to minimise them?
It is completely beyond me what motivates someone to requote a whole WAYWRN post, simply to add something like "wow looks great as always spoo". Then again, most of that thread is beyond me.
I've recently seen such worshipping begin concerning certain posters with 34,000 posts, which scares me.
My theory is the average SF member is a godless materialist, with a need to fill that empty space through constant prayer through posting and worship of the mystical SF deities.
For those who haven't read it Manton's book is the most concise for hard and fast sartorial rules. I don't agree with everything he says but its a fantastic guide to appropriate dress and conservative ideology.
In all honesty, I'm one who is slightly susceptible to silent SF hero worship and tumblr-stalking.
I don't have $$ for amazing visits to London/Naples (like this guy, one of my favourite past SF threads http://www.styleforum.net/t/170554/noob-here-wait-till-london-or-no)
or to afford the insane number and quality of items that my favourite SF members have (Spoo, Foo, Manton, maomao).
The flipside is that thrifting is not a viable option, given my lack of time/dedication and perceived slim pickings in Melb. Perhaps, it's easier for those involved in the #menswear vendor community to develop their wardrobes meaningfully, and maybe CW and Romp can comment on this. At the end of the day, you spend within your means and time. I'm particularly impressed with Romp, given that he has a young family and work commitments outside of menswear. CW as well. Amazing.
That's not to say I haven't tried things - I just have to be highly selective, and hence SF has basically changed my purchase/menswear trajectory.
At the end of the day, the basis of SF hero worship is that we're able to live vicariously through senior members. That and working towards your grails is more than half the fun.
