I use this stuff. It lathers clear so you can see what you're actually shaving, which is quite useful if you want to maintain a straight line on your beard etc. Lasts for ages as well.

Edit: Notice the new ones are full blown cutaway collar too. frown.gif

I think you will find all the shirts on the website - different lighting plays tricks on the eyes especially with stripes and the dove grey

I AM: an audio engineer. I AM WEARING: everything from Jack London, from my sunnies to my socks. MY STYLE: is classic '60s mod. I ADMIRE THE STYLE OF: Nick Cave. He's really rock'n'roll and grunge with class. MY FAVOURITE LABELS ARE: Tom Ford - it's super classy and timeless. I love Vivienne Westwood because she started out in the punk scene and now she's gravitated to high-end fashion. MY FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP IS: Harrolds on Collins Street. They have really good customer service and they stock Vivienne Westwood and Tom Ford. MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS: double velvet, only yesterday. I wore black velvet pants with a black velvet trucker jacket. WHEN I WAS A KID: I used to dress up as a red Power Ranger. I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD: in shorts. I have really hairy legs.

I saw this the other day in THE AGE.

I cannot identify even ONE item of clothing this bloke is wearing that qualifies as MOD. Not even by "fashion" writer standards. Going further I cant even see where he has a post modernist (note small but extremely relevant word play) approximation of MOD look or attitude. Let alone "classic 60s mod". No neatness or well tailored look.

In general I have a laissez-faire attitude to what others wear - otherwise I'd be in hospital - but sometimes I think it should be like the law - especially if your photo is in a "fashion" shoot - ignorance (of history and actual clothes) should be no defence.

A side note: I always assume that like flying first class, only people who aren't using their own money shop at Harrolds.

^ Mod? not even remotely reminiscent of the Melbourne Mod revival 1980 looks more like Crystal Ballroom post punk on any Saturday night in 1981.

I somehow doubt that he is buying Tom Ford at Harrolds on an audio engineer's salary...
post #31386 of 54953
He sounds (and looks) like a complete knob. On the other hand, he is making an effort, and that is to be applauded.
post #31387 of 54953
In his favour, whilst it's not a great look (in my humble opinion), at least he looks interesting and looks as though he makes an effort, unlike so many people photographed for "street style" pages nowadays.

My particular bugbear is the street seen/scene (or whatever it's called) page in the free MX newspaper every week.

The women are sometimes interesting or well-dressed, but most of the men featured are wearing very ordinary shoes, very ordinary jeans/cotton pants/shorts, and a very ordinary shirt, and they say that the shop at Jay Jay's, Industrie or somewhere similar. How on earth are such people "stylish"? They're absolutely unexceptional, as they look like 99.9% of other, late-teen university students or shop assistants. Surely the "style" section should be used to show people who actually look stylish or, at the very least, look as though they make some effort to look a bit different from other people?

Hey that's not fair! Some of us pay for our own first class trips!



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At the actual first class cost to the airline, thanks to staff benefits :D

 

But agreed, he looks like a tool. Only shops at Harrolds. Lololololol

MX... 'nuff said.

So...what's everyone planning on buying before the AUD crashes? I just bought an $800 watch (present, not for me)... pissed I didn't buy it a month ago!

I'd have said Logic. After all it comes with loops and he's probably a producer too so they'd come in handy.

There is a reason MX is free...

post #31395 of 54953
Ha. I know that guy. Aside from being an audio engineer he works at Jack London and is a semi-successful DJ in the seedy club scene.

Points for trying, agreed. Not a fan of the overall look. I'm assuming Harrolds is a "designer" label that is poor quality/style for a lot of money.
