    It's getting stale.

    A lot of these people who profess love for Mad-Men-esque aesthetics wouldn't and couldn't handle someone who actually acted like that.

    SF need's to hop off the 50's dick, what with the love of americana, mad men, mcqueen, and misogyny.

    ...just wanted to point out that Mad Men and Steve McQueen are both 1960's, not 1950's.

    Misogyny, on the other hand, is timeless.

    re: Mad Men, making it more stale is that BR contest and seeing the entries. most of those fellows really need to sort themselves out.

    I hate MadMen avatars


    Agreed. Some other things getting stale (actually SF thoughts)

    sprezzatura (just end your life)

    I wish Uniqlo would expand in US. It's perfect for broke ass people like me.

    BTW I hate being the last poster in threads.

    Isn't one always the last poster in a thread, if not only for a moment?

    Spezz is getting way out of hand ATM, it's silly.

    There are a few things that I like that I've seen done.

    It starts and ends with watch on shirt cuff.

    Real proprietors of spezz don't spend their days on styleforum while flipping through fashion mags.

    I agree.

    As people have said before, spezz fails when it's calculated ie monk strap not buckled, button down not buttoned, pocket square calculatingly falling out, barker black X lacing, beads / bracelets / charms, 'fun' socks, tucking pocket flaps in etc etc

    Some of my favourite tailored fits are when it's most simple and clean. Same for casual fits too. Ethan from Herringbone in Aus does it well.

    Does anyone else like welted pockets instead of flaps? Either patch or welts for me, I just think flaps break lines.

    that statement by uniqlo is real true. US and the UK are really lacking although they are trying to push uk online at the moment. I enjoy the products though. I hope they push more but i can't see it. I suppose it will never be like what is is in japan?

    It doesn't need to be, but more than one US location would be great. I know part of Uniqlo's appeal in the states is its exclusivity. For the prices and styles, Uniqlo can't really be beat by the Gaps of the world. What appeals to me about the place is that you can look sharp dressed head to toe merch from the store or you can easily incorporate pieces into an outfit to compliment a pricier item.

    doesn't tucking pocket flaps in help with not 'breaking lines'?
