Well, I'm not actually saying anything about reddit users. I also agree that there are a few great threads on there, especially relating to casual stuff.

 

I just think MFA gets garbage posts in relation to formal/business dress, and it usually has the appearance of informed opinion, since a bunch of people voice their agreement etc. I think beginners spending much time there will end up looking like the worst of the Elite Suits thread.

Sheez - thread moves quickly.

I don't have a lot to add as I've not read many books on menswear. However, I've read and written about men's lifestyle magazines and masculinity. In the space, Tim Edwards is something of an 'expert' - Cultures of Masculinity and Men In The Mirror: Men's Fashion, Masculinity and Consumer Society are both worth looking in to if this interests you.

Love the jacket mate. Where's it from?

I noticed that Kogan has a Steam Generator Iron on sale at the moment for a quite reasonable price: http://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-2000w-steam-iron/

I got one for the first time some weeks ago (different brand), and I have to say it has turned ironing from a dreaded chore to a minor annoyance. Totally worth it if you iron your own shirts.

Particular advantages are when ironing a bunch of shirts, ironing high thread count fabrics, or linens. Highly recommended.

It was from French Connection - eons ago.

I see it like music.

On the one hand you're going to have people who are naturally talented like Hendrix, who never needed to touch a book on music theory.

On the other, you have Robert Fripp who knew the theory inside out.

Both had a knack for what they did.

For the majority though doing some reading can't hurt. At very least you'll end up with a nice item for the bookshelf.

TBM

Had a look on Amazon at this looks a bit dated 1996, and heavily focused on sociology from the review there. Anything this century you know of in the same vein?

There are many Robert Fripp which one are you talking about the post punk Fripp of Exposure or the League of Gentlemen Fripp or Fripp & Eno. Or maybe the Fripp of the League of Crafty Guitarists? Or some other Robert Fripp?

Masculinities are not like the number of shoes at a gathering . . . their kinds (pumps, loafers, etc.) are not apparent. There are no ready criteria that allow me to identify masculinities . . . It may well be the best kept secret of the literature on masculinity that we have an extremely illdefined idea of what we are talking about.

Saw that 3sixteen dude today whilst walking around the CBD. Cool story.

Such a great credit.

I now find those King Crimson Vinyl albums I was given and never listened to and have stacked in boxes are worth a small amount of money.
Small mercies I guess. No accounting for taste.

I'd better cash in before the hipsters grow up

Its a funny old world isn't it.

If anyone wants Flusser's "dressing the man" just let me know I've got a copy I've read and don't particularly want anymore.
