I saw this the other day and didn't know what to make of it. Given his taste for skimpy man-slut suits, I can't fathom why he'd bother with A&S. I'm supposing neither party knows what its gotten itself into.

I imagine him trying to give them directions based on his tastes on his blog...and I don't think A&S cutters will be receptive to that.

I bet he picked A&S because he has a monolithic vision of Savile Row as a place you go to get a perfectly fitting suit (meaning, as tight as possible), and A&S is arguably the most famous of the firms. Based on what he shows us in his blog as well-fitting suits, I'm willing to bet he doesn't know what drape even is.

That makes it interesting IMHO.

He should have gone to Dege & Skinner, at least they would have properly outfitted him like the decorated clown that he is.

He's short and stocky and he doesn't dress in the exact same style he displays on his blog, give him some credit.

I know, maybe I'm being mean.

Well, no, not really. He passes off so much crap for fitting well, that some cynicism and scrutiny is appropriate. But I don't mind him at all for what he generally does, capturing fashion on the street. It can be inspiring.

A lot of the fashion he captures is from fashion show audiences or fashion professionals of some sort though. Not very street IMHO but interesting nonetheless. As far as blogs go I prefer Jak&Jil but to each his taste.
