    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Being imitated is entirely beside the point to me. Something doesn't need to be readily transferable to mass consumption to have value.

    I think it's pretty great that a reputable tailoring house is playing project runway, rather than leaving that solely to the high-fashion world. I'm sure that if most of us had the time and means to make all our own clothes we'd be pushing more limits.

    ---

    Changjin, the younger brother, has remained steadfastly conservative. The father has clearly been influenced by the older son over the last few years.

    Interesting take, JCM. I think I agree, but I want to give it some thought. I'm not entirely sure the function those runway shows have.

    A futile attempt to attract our local Parsons alum: @Tirailleur1

    ---
    And to be clear, and to respond to a PM asking if I was trolling:

    I legitimately like the navy linen striped jacket. On him. In that context. I think Tira and Labelking could also make it work.

    Don't like the square or pants though.

    I think it looks good on him.
    As always 'on him' or in the case of high-fashion runway 'on her' is always the key.

    Not everything is for everyone.

    Is the average overweight Westerner going to look good in their more kooky ensembles? Probably not.
    Will it work on a young guy on a night out in one of Asia's most dynamic fashion cities even though it breaks various rules most here cling to? Probably yes.

    B&T is available via mtm in nyc. Look in the B&T thread for contact information. MTM, not bespoke

    I'm sure this has been answered many times before, but are Henry Carter's ties listed in AUD or USD?

    Perhaps @Henry Carter might be the one to answer lol!

    AUD the last time I ordered, about a year ago. Means they're selling at about a 25% discount to the USD.

    Cheers,

    Fixed the issue with the jacket. Turns out the lapel was curving past the second button, creating the weird twist in the fabric. My dry cleaner (carefully) re-pressed the lapels - they're not perfect but the issue has been resolved.

    There is nothing fashion runway about this.


    Outside of Pitti?

    Yes. for sure.

    Striped odd jacket with cargo trousers?

    Looks like something that a host of luxury menswear brands send down the runway every year in an attempt to be different, edgy or new.

    Not speaking to that outfit. Just the role of runways as they relate to what trickles down into what we see.

    I think it was Journeyman that mentioned runways and slightly outlandish peacocking as serving some sort of function. I think I am inclined to agree with him, but I am too tired to think of why

    Not so much a trad thing, but don't forget long vertical billfold in bridal leather jammed into left back pocket and (in summer) terrycloth handkerchief jammed into right back pocket with 1/3 of handkerchief jutting out, presumably for easy access. These two are borderline required uniform for any man under 40. Not sure how anyone sits down like that. Don't ask me. I never worked at a company.

    Any idea why he refers to these as "prom jeans" in all of tumblr posts? Dying to know. Did he actually take jeans he wore to prom in the 80's and add suspenders? Inquiring minds want to know.
