1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    It seems to me that that the critiques are emphasizing fit and proportion while Shah's defense is emphasizing the importance of specific brands, plus a few references to designers. The arguments are thereby flying past each other instead of landing on their marks.

    You boys have been busy overnight, I can see, from the number of posts - the natives are obviously restless.

    Something simpler, as an antidote to yesterday's grandiosity

    SC, PS & shirt - BB
    Tie - Barney's
    Trousers - JAB

    Interesting last few pages. We need more MC-SW&D interaction.

    Really cool looks lately gents. I love the blend we have of winter stuff and spring stuff and some great philosophical discussion of aesthetics and intentions of dress. This forum is fascinating as a student of the mind. No fit pictures for me today, as I am on vacation this week. I'll be coming back with some (better) fitting s/s wear soon!

    I'm like Spoozy minus 23 years and from the South Eastern United States. I work in a menswear store similar to Sid Mashburn, so I can get away with bright colors, crazy pattern matching and the likes.

    Is that thing alive? ... Referring to the brilliant cashmere, not the barking document holder.

    In response.... Actually, Michigan's colors are "azure blue", not "navy", and maize. So, my tie is half correct! What you are not seeing are the striped Maize 'n Blue socks that I am wearing shamelessly.

    Tue & Thurs were less-than-exclamatory days, I take it. :p

    Srsly tho', I like Sun's look best out of these.

    I really like this; the hat is a nice touch. Stick around.

    I actually liked shah's outfit, but the best thing about its presence in the thread is that someone finally wrote out this undercurrent explicitly.

    I happen to fall outside of the last paragraph's "many".

    For me, a moderately conservative tailored approach to menswear is simply the mode of dressing in which I am personally most comfortable in and meets my life's needs. Taken societally, of course you are undeniably correct that if you take any random person and any random situation, and put them together, a traditional menswear aesthetic is more likely to have contextual validity than any other. I think that's pretty much a tautological truism, as it represents the prevalent wider culture.

    However, we don't exist as random people and random situations, but rather as individual's leading individual lives. As such, the best judge of individual contextual validity in a specific setting is theoretically the individual getting dressed, assuming they have adequate personal insight into their psyche and their lifestyle (this is not always a given, based on some posters/threads in MC, admittedly). Also, context is not a static external pressure brought about by an event/society, but rather a dynamic that is created between an individual & those he interacts with. In that sense, I have more intellectual sympathy with the concept that menswear is actually a series of costumes, some of which happen to mesh better than others with an individual's personality/lifestyle.

    Some of those costumes happen to also have greater cultural and societal resonances than others; the ones that have been about longest and are most associated with the existing establishment. That's not the same thing as saying that they are not costumes.

    Agreed. It's always stimulating to have a broad exchange of concepts.






    Relaxed Friday...

    If you're going to use the Liam method of cleaning, you have to push the games further under the couch.

    Also, sell me your pants.
