Vienna is a lovely city. I was not looking for clothing when I went there though.A quite agreable piece of writing from Roetzel on PG about Austrian bespoke offering. Pangerman tailoring remains a terra incognita, so it's, at least, informative. Didn't know where to put it.
Super boring cuts Indeed.Viennese tailors always had the reputation of being more extravagant in their style than the German and British tailors, so I'm mildly disappointed about the examples shown in that article. Very boxy, wide jackets, like they were popular in the late 90's and early 00's.

Should you stop wearing neckties?-wearing a tight necktie reduces cerebral blood flow.

Negative cerebrovascular effects can be expected by compressing jugular veins and carotids by a necktie. It was already demonstrated that a necktie increases intraocular pressure. In many professions, a special dress code including a necktie and a collared shirt is mandatory although little is known about the effect of this "socially desirable strangulation."
In this study, the effect of wearing a necktie concerning cerebral blood flow and jugular venous flow by magnetic resonance imaging. Thirty volunteers were divided in two groups. One underwent MRI with necktie, the other without.
The examination resulted in a statistically significant decrease of CBF after tightening the necktie (p < 0.001) while the venous flow did not show any significant changes.
It appears that wearing a necktie leads to a reduction in CBF.

Post Malone & Crocs Team Up For Limited Edition Clogs
DALLAS, TX – Post Malone receives his fair share of heavy-handed criticism for his controversial statements and success in the industry, but he remains in high demand for brands looking to utilize his star power.
Crocs has announced a new partnership with the platinum-selling artist as part of their “Come As You Are” campaign. The two sides are working together on a design called The Post Malone x Crocs Dimitri Clog.
The gaudy shoe comes in a classic white color flamboyantly decorated with six custom-designed Jibbitz charms, which include Malone’s yellow “Stay Away” tattoo and his Posty Co™ logo.
“If you like something, go get it,” Malone said in a press release. “I wear Crocs everywhere from the bar to the stage and I felt it was the perfect collaboration to get together with Crocs and give the fans what they’ve been asking for.”
Crocs Chief Marketing Officer Terence Reilly elaborated on how the collaboration came to be.
“Amidst his record-setting year, when Post tweeted, ‘U can tell a lot about a man by the Jibbitz in his Crocs’, that really got our attention,” he explained. “Post Malone is a beloved creator and represents what it means to be comfortable in your own shoes, so collaborating on product design is special. We’re thrilled with how the Post Malone x Crocs Dimitri Clog turned out and excited about what’s to come. Stay tuned.”
The limited-edition shoe was available for $59.99 at crocs.com, but it sold out within the hour of its release. Those who missed out are in luck though because Crocs plans to release more soon.
They have been shite for years.and this one's for Thruth
People Sad to Hear Woolrich, Inc. Woolen Mill to Close by Year’s End
Woolrich, Pa. -- One of Clinton Country's longest run businesses is closing it woolen mill for good.
Woolrich, Incorporated was founded in 1830 and the family-owned company provided both woolen products and employment to many in central Pennslyvania over the decades.
It was dinner time at the Creek Side Diner near Mill Hall.
Many people here had already heard that one of Clinton County's longest running businesses, Woolrich, Inc. will close its woolen mill in Woolrich by the end of the year.
Woolrich Closing Clinton County Woolen Mill
“I think it's horrible,” said Lance Ohnmeiss from Williamsport. “Another American industry gone, you know? Just the way it is and they're going to raise our taxes because most likely another industry's gone out of the area.”
Cheryl Miller from Lock Haven worked at the mill in the 70's and enjoyed working for the company.
“The Woolrich Park, we always had family gatherings and picnics there,” said Miller. “The Woolrich store was always a nice place.”
The company says it is shuttering the mill due to higher manufacturing costs.
All its production will be done overseas, a move Woolrich began in November of 2016.
The 40 employees at the mill will be laid off.
Woolrich says it will continue to maintain its wholesale and retail apparel business, including at its store down the street from the factory.
As for the employees affected by the mill's closure, Woolrich says it will provide career transitional services for them.
That includes helping them to find new jobs at area businesses.
“We don't have enough jobs that are good paying jobs here as it is,” said Ohnmeiss.
“It's a shame it's closing, takes away employment for smaller cities,” said Tom Siddle from Jersey Shore.
“I just think it's a shame, like he said, with the unemployment in the area and the economy, it's a shame it's closing,” said Siddle’s dining companion, Melissa Good.
Woolrich's president says employees affected by the mill closing who are not seeking re-employment will be provided with retirement and pension planning services.
