If you've got a good physique, things are very simple: men look best in T-shirt and jeans or a tailored suit. For a long time I lived in Diesel jeans and leather jackets, but once I hit 35 I toned things down a bit.

Nowadays I prefer clothes to be a bit more formal: a fine piece of cloth has become as much a pleasure to me as a good single malt or espresso. Call it a fetish or a ritual, but part of the enjoyment of being with an educated woman is undressing her. After all, people’s fashion choices say so much about them – Santa’s nipple tassels for instance.

I’m slightly embarrassed to admit to wearing Kenneth Cole these days. Cole’s marketing can be stupid, but some of the jackets are fantastically well shaped when so much 'off the peg' stuff hangs like hessian sacks. For shoes I can’t think of anything better then Clarks Desert Trek; they're incredibly practical yet look great. As for watches, nearly everyone I know has replaced them with smartphones, but I still feel oddly naked without one. My old Oris Big Crown chronograph is a bit of a keepsake though. For everyday use I prefer a Mondaine day-date; it's been around the block a few times and I hate the idea of losing it.

A man really only needs a woman, a dog and a decent pair of shoes. End of.

I'm concerned by your attitude, 6of1. Where does that leave the legless homosexual catlover?

Cage system housing, sad but true.

Generally accepted in civilised cultures. Cases of extreme hardship are granted Internet access to bemoan their fate. They can release some of their built-up frustrations, yet nobody is offended by the stench. Indeed a major step towards more humane conditions in their treatment.

I realise English is your second language - there's no other explanation for why you write so badly - but, really, what the fuck are you on about? It has nothing to do with apparel and seems to be just another one of your humourless self-satisfied discourses.

I have no objection to asyndetic thinking if it's amusing or enlightening, but that's just crap, plain and simple. Perhaps one of the mods could clean up what might yet be an interesting thread.

On average I buy at least one ladies top on each trip to my favourite mall. Meaning 6 new additions to my dresser in the past month alone, and not including what I bought for Christmas.

Other recent buys, 2 new pairs of high-heels, some lingerie. Hmm, no jeans in a month, I must be losing my touch if not my ass.

And last but not least, a new pair of Unisex fitness gloves to curl my chrome dumbells.

Haven't bought anything for a while, but did receive the following as a Christmas present:



I'm no particular fan of the University of Toledo (or any university, for the matter of it), but I love the retro rocket logo.

I apologise for making a mess of the piercings. An non-iodized sea salt mixture should help.

Does he tweak them as though they are bass and treble knobs on a Pioneer deck?

Forgot to mention this...

I see this only now. Sorry mate, I'm not American.

Apart from that some charming discussions here. Pardon the digression, I still prefer the minimalist approach. Woman, dog, shoes - complete.

Odd....Number 6 had neither a woman nor a dog in his life and his shoes were owned by The Village.

Six and I have buried the hatchet.

I apologise for my rudeness, Mr of1, and I would like to blame Tourette's fucking syndrome.

Picked up a Flair Industries wool suit.

I suppose it looks something like this:

Same on my side. It's an effing nuisance, entirely my fault.

Btw, the Desert Treks are decidedly among the best in their league IMHO. And given my very narrowed interest in the general topic I find you simply cannot take the matter of shoes too seriously. Definitely recommended.

Has anyone here owned a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo's? Were/Are they worth the money?

I really dig a few of their loafers design-wise but it's a lot of money to shell out on a pair of shoes laugh

Salvatore Ferragamos can be absolutely beautiful but no matter how much disposable income I have I just can't justify spending more than a few hundred dollars on a pair of shoes from a ready-to-wear shop.

I do think that a good pair of beautiful shoes is worth $200 - $400... But when it gets over that, I would suggest finding a cobbler to custom make your shoes for you. Better fit and quality. I've had that done before and they felt wonderful on my feet. The problem was the bride who designed them picked a horrid design so I wore them for the wedding (as bride's maid) and once at the office after that before giving them away.

For most of my life, I've enjoyed wearing vintage clothing and making much of what I wear. But about 10 years ago all the discount designer shops lured me in. Sort of sad actually because my wardrobe overall went downhill after that.

Lately, I'm back to having a few really signature pieces in my wardrobe with a bit of vintage added on occasion. I'm volunteering with an ECO fashion movement so my lifestyle fits with that perfectly. Once I get my machine set up again permanently, I'll be back to making my own clothing from fresh eco fabrics as well as bits and pieces from older out-of-style pieces.

So, I've not bought anything new for myself in quite a while. I did buy some designer shirts (Armani, Perry Ellis and three others) for Daniel a few months ago. I bought five of them, each was $5.99.... second-hand store. Could not believe my luck. Washed and ironed them and they were like new. :)

Gary Oldman's thoughts on clothes, and the overgrown boy look favoured by so many Americans:

Quote :
LA is one of the few towns where, as you step out of your apartment, you feel instantly ashamed of the lack of sartorial effort people go to. There's a uniform over there of chinos and T-shirts and sneakers.

I like his style.

America is becoming a very ugly place, and the clothing favored by the younger set is a big reason why.
