Agreeable Menswear Post Of The Day

Tibor is more formal, more exaggerated.

This bloke is one of those rare ones that somehow makes it their own.
He does it well. He is a different beastie altogther than Tibor as Shooey has said. The hat works, but he should put on straight. In opposition to Sauce, I think the shirt works well with the jacket cut. A spread collar clearly would not.
 
The suit itself is quite nice, the fact that he's donned a stupid period hat and had the photo took outside a house with a same period fonted number on it makes it pure cosplay. If he dumped the hat, swapped the shirt for a spread collar and wore a decent tie he wouldn't look such a prick.
Pretty much my thoughts - lose the hat, change the shirt to one with proper tie space and get a better tie, and he would just be a guy in a suit.

The way he dresses in the photo clearly marks him as anachronistic in a bad way, which IMO is the worst thing to be when wearing tailored clothing.

RE shirts: I think this one would do quite nicely for him, because it is undeniably classic, while including an unusual, somewhat vintage detail


Edit: I was unaware the guy is in a band - if that 30s/40s style is part of his stage costume that also transitions to his daily life, then I think the outfit is eccentric, but generally acceptable.

What is the fundamental difference between this guy and someone like Tibor?

Curious for your take on it as well Dropbear Dropbear

I think that’s a really good question. You could take these clothes off this guy and put them on Tibor - who would still look like a twat playing dress-up.

Part of it is that it’s not just formalwear - he is wearing a fair approximation of 40s wear appropriate for the venue. He isn’t wearing a regency costume in a pub, surrounded by a bunch of pedos in gold chains and sneakers. He is wearing a Hawaiian shirt or a polo at the beach and a suit when going out for dinner.

Part of it is also a confidence. Tibor always looks like he has a stick up his arse. This kid is smiling and having fun (often with his girlfriend, also dressing for the era) while out doing fun stuff.

Finally, I come back to something fxh fxh once said about different style rules applying to rock stars. This kid plays trumpet, drums and sings in a touring jazz band. This is his stage costume as well as just fashion.

It’s definitely eccentric and not my style, but I find it agreeable and worthy of respect.
 
Scientology big wig David Miscavidge. Wears custom suits and bespoke Johnny Lobb.

Tailor makes a nice clean suit, but looks like the collar could easily pop off the neck, and it seems like THEY DO!

Lots of criminals and fraudsters and cult leaders wear expensive clothes.
Very true. And you can't get much more crooked that bunch. I once worked with a poor idiot who had devoted a lot of time to spreading the Word of Ron.

Ron was a big clothes horse, he had clothes for all occasions that would rival the most extreme collections on the forums. As for David, he has nothing but the best, ie, Savile Row bespoke etc.

The late Jiang Zemin wore lots of expensive looking custom suits too, and he was said to have laundered over a trillion dollars from China's economy; and of course there is Putin who often wears his bespoke Corthay shoes with bespoke suits, he wears the best of the best. His tracksuits are made by Loro Piana and cost thousands.

Of course there is also `rocketman', who is said to live better than everyone on earth in North Korea while the rest of the country lives in poverty, obviously his clothing is bespoke.

And then there’s your pal Don who is a morbidly obese clueless schlub no matter how rich he claims to be.

I could talk a lot about Trump, but that is probably best kept offline, so lets talk about Trump's clothes.

Trump wears:
- Kabbaz bespoke shirts (Alumo 120/2's fabrics, always white shirts)
- Artioli shoos
- Brioni suits

I think it is fantastic that he likes to experience high quality items. I love that he likes fancy black Italian shoes of light construction. I like that he went to Kabbaz for shirts. I like that he paid big bucks for his power suits. I like that he only wears white shirts. I like that he wears his ties too long, has a big tummy, has a big mouth and wears his hair the way he does. Trump is Trump. They don't make guys like that anymore...most of these powerful are sell outs and weenies now...liked scared little mice, selling out sovereignty and undermining our democracy....poor excuses for men.

This is the agreeable thread. Please keep any discussion of that fat shlub in the other thread.

Is what I was going to write. Since those personalitiesof "charismatic leaders" are most of the time psychopaths or malignant narcissists, they go to the most expensive cloths.

Here is an example.

About Trump, I think he wears his own cloth company, since those fat bad suits doesn´t looks Brioni to me, it was when he was young I think.

Merry Christmas to you all my friends and haters, since I prefer the second ones.
 


not a big lilac/lavender suit fan but i have to admit i really like this light purple/grape combo on lamar hurd (guy on the right).
 
Nearly 100 years ago, but hardly seems like times have changed that much.

Are you old enough to remember when most men and women wore hats, Shooey. As a small child, I remember looking up as the men taking their hats off in the hallway. But I then looked down and inspected the polish on their shoes.
 
Love this video. Small wardrobe, but all of quality items.


he's absolutely right, but this is not exactly groundbreaking stuff.

this is the same obvious truth that was shoehorned in to justify the "heritage" movement last decade, and the whole "buy less, buy better" shtick has been a catchprhase that has gone hand-in-hand with such indicators as selvedge, goodyear welt, and shell cordovan for quite some time now.

what is his practical advice? take inventory? do an audit? pretty general suggestions, which again are perfectly good ideas, but dance around any attempt at identifying the root cause of the collect-em-all and grail-chasing mindset of the clothing-addicted. the obsessive-compulsives will still find a way to spaz out over what the "perfect" 10 shirts are, or what the perfect "oneshirt" is (and proceed to purchase 10 of them).

how many new faces are going to repeat this epiphany before we're done here? better is better? who knew?

Also this. It’s easy to commit to a minimalist wardrobe. It’s a lot harder to manage that without many costly buys and sells, as you figure out what your essentials are.
 

I'm not a great fan of dieworkwear, but occasionally he has at least somewhat interesting posts.
Also, I would rank Akamine as one of the few men on the internet who are actually very well dressed.

wow, what a loser.

People who need to disguise in expensive clothes as a social shield for all his personality fails and complexes. Poor idiot!

find a therapist instead of so many bad clothes you loser!
 
A good post that could well lead to discussion about when is the wardrobe complete by long-time menswear fora poster, Kingstonian.

All the talk of great new gear and potential purchases put me in mind of dear old Russell Street RIP and the boxes of kit that he seldom wore.

I am an age where I have a lot of stuff and don't really want to add much unless it wears out.

It's not all Ivy. There are work suits that only come out for funerals, weddings or a night at the opera. Cordings stuff and tweed jackets too.

It's quite enjoyable wearing items that have not had a lot of use

Holy shit SVB, long time no see.

I like that linen bomber, but I wouldn’t credit Bruno with the current trend of using tailoring fabrics on casual jackets.
