    P coats

    I haven't really been into the fashion world for a little while because I've been excessively busy and not as interested as usual. I see military trends on the catwalk, but none of what is there is attractive to me. Right now I have a penchant for a good P (or Pea) coat in navy or black (?)...

    HOF: Member pictures

    I don't have an available picture of me but... I realised that had this thread been attempted on the GQ forum, it would've been closed due to excessive pornographic posting... I'm glad that someone (I can't remember who) on the forum suggested this website to me, so that I could escape the...

    HOF: What look would you like to see stopped?

    On the 'military' note: I don't find military or military-inspired clothing offensive in any way. Although sometimes people go over the top, often to secure their masculinity, generally an item of militaristic clothing is fine. This season is chock full of it, as was last winter. What I despise...

    Blazer vs. sport coat vs. suit

    The best is that you can always look a hell of a lot more stylish in a suit than in a sports coat or blazer, as the suit has far more accesories and other changeable features- just think about the differences in style a skinny black tie vs. an hermes makes. EI

    Why must style be unpopular?

    Style originates from the process of internalizing who you are and then making the neccesary sartorial choices.

    Tuxedos and lapel-flowers

    Sean Connery climbs out of the water and pulls off his wetsuit to reveal a savile-row tuxedo. He walks quickly along the pier, stopping one to pluck a rose from a nearby bush and attach it to his lapel. As a Swede, the only time men ever wear flowers is for weddings. However, I was at a party in...

    I am going to the elite model look 2003......

    I'd advocate a very slim fitted pinstripe with combats and maybe some interesting shoes. Otherwise, you can never go wrong with a black slim urbanweight suit with an interesting shirt, as LA Guy said (I think he should start a website..). I saw a pretty cool look in NYC: it was the combination...

    European v. american suits

    Unfortunately, clothing sizing and cut doesn't seem to be warding off obesity in Europe- despite fine (and slim) tailoring from the likes of Boss and Sir Paul Smith, Germany and England are quickly coming to terms with obesity on scale with that in the US... I guess this is why so many...

    Upgrading my swimwear

    I can't recommend a specific brand, but look at The Talented Mr. Ripley- Jude Law's style is impeccable if you have a slim waist. --European Interloper

    What's your favorite mainstream designer?

    Ok, ok. I've gotten unfair press here, which largely is my own fault. I don't hate Ralph Lauren. I personally don't like the style of clothing, or the fact that he has stayed relatively unevolved since his creation. However, it must be said that he is a massive market force. He has weathered the...

    What's your favorite mainstream designer?

    I concede that RL isn't that horrible, it just seems a shame that people run to it as a favourite brand. However, as most people here are American, and America is argueably one of the most conservative democracys around, RL's popularity makes sense. I just wish that they'd at least have a...

    What's your favorite mainstream designer?

    Certainly. It's ridiculous that a brand like that even gets votes- I have seen nothing inspirational or beautiful out of RL. It's sad that such a poor brand, with so little to offer, has found such a niche in WASP, and consiquently, American society (and its imitators- I saw a frenchman in a...

    Hip-hop styling

    Actually, 'black' styling often predates white trends, almost directly (in menswear, that is). Look at the YSL lines and see what SeanJohn had out last year. Look again. Then go... woah, those pants are identical. Now, repeat for Cavalli etc. European Interloper

    Hip-hop styling

    I certainly agree that Hip-Hop and Gangsta stylings can actually be stylish. The jailhouse sagging technique, replicated in real life to acheive a low crotch, is carried through to real fashion by simply dropping the crotch on jeans, keeping the waistline either equatorial or just beneath it. I...

    Hip-hop styling

    These days, it seems that everyone from teens to thirty year old imitate artists in some way, be it from a Tracey Emin slouch to a pair of Snoop Dogg sagged jeans. I just wanted to pose the question- would you ever attempt to dress somehow like any one of the above options? If not- why not? If...

    Sneakers/trainers/casual shoes

    Look around for new designer sneakers- they're mostly inconspicuous enough to wear with anything, including a suit. I recommend the Varvatos or Marc Jacobs converses. Otherwise, I suggest looking at Puma's 48hr collection, which have great shoes for walking that look good. European Interloper

    Blazer replacements

    I was just looking at the new collections, and noticed that a very cool look, similar to the suede jacket/blazer look of last (and almost every) season, has been modified. The safari jacket has been slimmed down and darkened and deconstructed, and is now all over all collections. And, I must...

    What comprises the ultimate coat?

    I suggested that someone else start this topic, largely due to my own lethargy, but as one has yet to be started I decided it was time for decisive action. Yet, as always in the realm of fashion, decisiveness is difficult- fashion is, like any other art, entirely subjective (yes, even if GQ does...

    The slim black suit

    I'm glad to meet another Transmet fan... The Beast vs. Dubya, anyone notice the similarities? Anyway, I love both Dior and Lang, but I feel that Dior is most consistent in his... innovation. I'm not sure if that's quite the right way of putting it, but he comes out with a new style of shirt or a...
