I’m busy traveling at the moment and will be able to write more on Weds or Thursday. For the moment, however, check out these photos of United Arrow’s Creative Director, Yasuto Kamoshita, hanging out in one of Japan’s John Lobb stores.
Count the number of rules being broken here. He’s not only…
Hope you are well.
I am considering wearing a slim cut navy suit, white cut away, dark brown/burgundy longwings and a brown knitted silk tie to my school formal.
I would love to know if I have (a). chosen well and (b). what colour socks/pocket square should I buy?
thank you for your time and opinion, love your blog.
P.S - is a silk knit tie 'formal' enough?
IMO a formal screams for black shoes.. & cap toe oxfords or something sleek, not brown, not burgundy & no brogues/longwings.
If you must wear a knit tie, make sure it is silk not wool & black or navy.
Longtime reader, first time Asker...
Really enjoy the blog, just wanted to pick your brains on suit related matter, and I thought you'd be the guy to go to... I'm going to an awards ceremony in June here in London. It's 'black tie', although as its a design awards you always get the wacky guys that turn up in jeans, or wear a suit with trainers etc, so its not exactly strict if you know what I mean. Graphic designers aren't known for their dress sense. Point is it is a massive awards, and I generally dress pretty smart day to day anyway; chinos/shirt/blazer, so I want to up my game a little bit. So far I've got this two button italian suit: http://bit.ly/k2IIJE (ignore the shirt/tie combo), and I'm considering just a simple white shirt and black tie, but feel like I could/should do something a bit more, erm....special? But at the same time don't want to over egg it. Any thoughts would appreciated!
If you are to wear the black tie, wear a light blue shirt with spread collar & a white with blue edged PS.
