Very interesting reading:

http://chronicle.com/article/The-Year-of-Dressing-Formally/45940/

This also ties in to the concept of hard/soft dressing mentioned by fxh some time back.

Watched The Mask of Dimitrios (1944) the other night. Some amazing clothes in that movie.

This idea is also great.


We should make one of them happen. Make it on the 29th of June and I'm definitely in, or the 13th of July 9but the June date is much better)

If we're going with my idea, it would be a good idea to warn PJs and maybe Azzaro that we are coming. If we get onto Tom right away he ought to be able to keep that date/time free for us.

Dunno why.  Just as likely to be unable to think their way out of a wet paper bag, let alone out of the box.  Being a dropout doesn't make you unconventional!

 

Speaking of people unable to think their way out of a wet paper bag, saw this morning that DJs is going to hold firm to the new strategy of less discounting and less sales and higher margins, apparently relying on the "too silly to buy the same stuff elsewhere cheaper" market.  It's a shame because DJs could be a really convenient and central location for getting good menswear from good brands... but they are dead-set on keeping margins high by having high prices rather than reducing their costs and changing the way they do business.

Interesting read but really 'the Fez' all I can say is who is going to step up to the plate with this one?

I had lunch with a friend on Sunday whose an opthamologist who told me he had to go and do examinations on a bunch of Navy Ninja's at lunch with the other doctors he questioned them about the psychological profiling of the candidates and how they pick them. The Doctor told him if they answer the question have you ever had a cold with No they were in. Obviously everybody has had a cold what they want is people who think their invincible.

In other words, they want unrealistic delusional dropouts. That sounds about right for public service entry criteria and eventual entry into politics.

You may laugh, but the Zegna trofeo suit I picked up there for $80 two years still feels like a bargain to me.

This is a bit streetwear but what the hey, 

 

Would you guys consider the Volley as a fair replacement for the Vans as a go to sneaker? 

 

Vans remind me too much of tapout shirts, eyebrow piercings and fluro coloured commodores...

Order of Saphir products turned up from Valmour today. 

 

 

 

No shoe care products were harmed, thankfully.
