Today some Tweed against the bad weather.
Nice suit, but I would prefer some loop suspenders and a PS, maybe something in a compementary green:
If it doesn't fit, yes.
He doesn't agree:
Its a rainy day in Dublin today. I've worn this before but here I am wearing it again:
I agree with you Don, only with tweed I'd opt for a wetter silk for contrast.
(I wish I got an opportunity to wear tweed, but as long as I'm living in Indonesia, that's out of the question...)
Wednesday, paisley, and the Westminster Hymnal.
That's exactly what I meant!
Superb colours & textures, Don.
Last day of nice weather. Here comes the cold weather.
Very very nice, Don! Love the tie, where does it come from?
Nyec, details on Watch and Cufflinks?
From the FC.
Spoiler: shoes, jacket and stuff
Tie is from Woods of shropshire: http://www.woodsofshropshire.co.uk/green-tweed-pure-wool-handmade-tie
I don't think that I mentally really differentiate between style and fashion. Rather, I differentiate between trendy and things that are more, and I hate to say this, classically good looking. Meaning styling which is not new, or trendy, or current, it's just something that pretty much has always looked good and will probably continue to. As opposed to trends, which are hot fire for a time, but always come and go.
I think we have already talked about the pros and cons of each at length in the past. Particularly in one of the discussion threads that Clags and big T had.
If pressed for a personal definition between fashion and style, I'd probably say that fashion is composed of the elements you choose, style is how you put those elements together to create something uniquely your own.
