Anyone else noticed how absolutely shite at dressing they are?

I can think of that Simon Doonan fella from Barneys. Always sporting a shirt that looks like he just vomited cold pizza on it.

Theres that louse mouthed cockney bloke who seems to favour black shirts with huge collars and shitey sports jackets.

And the mincing gay bloke who I think might have won project runway, with the emo haircut, nashy health glasses and outgrown school sweaters.

Why are we supposed to pay attention to these clowns when they look like they get their clothes from dumpster diving?

And GQ, Esquire, and skinny suits suck too.....blah blah blah....

I'm not trying to be a dick, but what's the point if this thread? This is just like all the other "why does GQ want me to wear an elf suit" or "why do all celebrities wear black shirts with their tuxes" threads.

I've never heard of any of the people that you mentioned, but I just wouldn't pay attention to them.

Not quite the same, as GQ et al are clearly trying to turn the wheels of fashion a bit faster to get you to throw out all your clothes and spend all your money acquiring new ones. I'm mildly curious as to what some celebs are wearing (at least the ones with some style like Clooney) and get irritated by these wankers sitting there pointing the finger at a borderline tie while they are on TV with no evidence of possessing any sense of style themselves. Best to ignore them as you say but my gf tends to gravitate towards those kind of shows especially when the awards are on.

Now he looks pretty smooth.

The loud cockney wanker is Peter Ishkhians or something like that according to my gf.

I have no problems with his style of dress (I don't know much about it), and as for the content of what he says (whether his aesthetic and sartorial advice is sound) I can't comment, but in terms of his tone of voice and the way he presents himself, at least every time I've seen him on TV -- the man is an unabashed walking stereotype and completely disgusts me. Admittedly his defining moment in my eyes was a Leno (?) appearance in which he was asked a question about some female celebrity and all he seemed to give a shit about was if she looked "fabulous" and skinny, because obviously there's no other way for a person to be useful to society.

Here's a new twist on Tom Wolfe's pizza grenade tie.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
