i think the word you're looking for is 'effortless'. plus, it's menswear photos, not nobel prize awards, so you don't need to intelligible or dumb  :)

I gave up reading DMarge quite a long time ago because most of the writing is shallow, facile and irritating. There's really no difference between DMarge and GQ, as far as I can see.

Anyway, looking at those photos (with the notable exception of a few people, such as TBM) reminds me of why I'm spending less time reading, talking about and looking at fashion on the internet nowadays. It's just too irritating.

Does anyone know which suiting fabrics are more durable? 

 

I know on one end your plain weaves like worsted and twill last longer whilst nailhead and birdseye wear quicker but where does stuff like sharkskin, herringbone and pic-and-pic fall?

The ones made by RMWs should be durable. I jest. Welcome back! Where you been?

I saw some RMWs on what I believe is called the Macquarie last (is that the one, Fox?) and they're pretty darn good looking!!

I suspect that someone like fxh will be able to chime in with a good response.

In my experience, sharkskin and pick-and-pick are both durable. Herringbone (again, in my experience), both as a shirting and as a suiting fabric, tends to be quite soft and not so durable.

I'm really quite pleasantly surprised by just how well some of my worsted wool and sharkskin fabric suits have worn. A charcoal suit from Herringbone in a gray charcoal worsted cloth has been worn every couple of week for the past few years and there are no signs of wear in the trousers yet, but I've got other pairs of trousers that have worn out in the fork after only a year or so. The same goes for my sharkskin suit from Deer Style - the cloth is light yet wears very well and is showing no signs of wear as yet.

That's the one, TBM.

Alert Gerry Nelson. Tommy Hilfiger has a surprisingly nice quilted blazer in beige herringbone wool fabric.

It's 24 degrees in the water here and I've just bought a heavy sweater. I guess my New Year's wish will be for some sort of a winter in Sydney...

More tie finds from me. I would never wear Versace ties given my age and preference for simplicity, but I do appreciate the concept. I feel like they are art pieces more than wearable accessories. Does anyone have a good link to a history of the various periods of design for these?

Was at DJ's Hornsby today looking for shorts sadly the locusts had gone through and not one in my size. So while I waited for Mrs GF I watched the annual running of the bulls.

One poor clown was piled high with ties, shirts and trousers that mother had chosen for him, poor bastard.

Yes I believe those are from Versace's 'early hideous' period.

Haha yeah I agree, they are wonderfully hideous. I think that's why I find them interesting.

Happy new years guys. Been off the radar for a week while down in mollymook braving the crowds. Weather has been fantastic and the water warm. FXH will be shocked to hear i havent worn socks for 6 days.... Bugger all vodafone reception here. I'll be home in 3 days to a pile of orders and a bunch of new Bresciani socks to upload! Stay safe and see you in 2014.
