Whilst the article is primarily about women, it really reminded me of the ridiculous outfits that we see people wearing during Pitti Uomo - in essence, they are deliberately donning costumes so as to attract attention and (hopefully) be photographed. Unfortunately, however, there are people out there who see those photos posted and reposted on Tumblr and who then adopt those looks for themselves.

Apparently, the article has created a bit of a stir online, with some people supporting the views put forward in the article (there are too many ridiculously-dressed fops swanning around etc etc) and others panning the article (the democratisation of fashion, rise of street style, etc etc).

Thanks for the lead JM! Now, what to do with that black floppy felt hat I purchased : )

Just a quick question -

 

Is something like a 70% cashmere, 30% silk tie from Howard Yount going to be as good quality as a 100% silk? What characteristics does the cashmere bring?

 

And what about a 100% wool, or 90% wool, 10% silk tie, steer clear or? I'm guessing more casual if it's wool?

Great article JM, I found it very interesting, particularly against the backdrop of guys trying really hard to peacock their way onto mr porter. ..

Just ordered the MJ Bale Tobias jacket in light grey. Hopefully it doesn't tear or anything when I crawl through the streets on all fours, shoplifting in stores and eat raw ham from a can.
