I don't really have any interest in sartorialism.
I came here because I wanted to learn what was business appropriate and be able to source it in Australia - the latter being an art in itself.
Depends on what you do at the gym. Eating well and going for a run a few times will get you healthy. Weights can also have that effect but will wear out your joints over time.
How do you improve confidence and self esteem if there's no one else to provide approval? Seriously. If you became stranded on a deserted island with no other people you would very quickly lose interest in how you dress or look. The point is you dress in one or way or another for others -- to fit in, to stand out, to portray yourself in a particular way.
I really don't understand why people get sensitive about this point. Just because you dress a particular way or express yourself, or fit in or whatever doesn't mean that isn't you. But in the end you dress to be seen -- one way or another. Otherwise, if I was the last man on earth, I wouldn't give a crap how I dress as long as I am shielded from the elements.
A bit of both, but mainly for myself. If someone else doesn't like what I wear then that's their problem.
This is true, but at the end of the day do you really care about what someone else on the street wears?
I wrote up a piece on Oscar Hunt, I'd appreciate it if you all checked it out!
So I've just moved to Sydney and I've been lurking here for a little while (in addition to doing some research) and I have definitely decided to have my next suiting/coating/pantsing (oh yes) experience with Zink and Sons. I've also decided to have a thing made by Bijan perhaps come tax/bonus time however, I do have one question, ahem (Seinfeld voice), what is the deal with P. Johnson? I had a look at the online store and I love many of the ties (especially all of the ones that are sold out) but I don't get the obsession.
