"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

To “LIVE & WEAR WITHOUT CARE”
For those that don’t know me long enough, I went through a “set-back” in 2001. I was diagnosed with a debilitating blood disorder & was told to live my dreams now as I only have 12 months before my body would give up.
I then walked home, the loneliest walk thinking why, what & how do I tell my family.
It was not till I saw my then 6 month old Niece in her cot crying, I picked her up & looked at her. She then stopped crying & I realised that I need to be around for a long long time.
It was, die living or live dying..
30 days passed before I shared the news with my immediate family.
Why 30 days? I wanted them to look back the last 30 days & tell me if they noticed anything different, they agreed nothing was different so I said let’s look forward as everything will be good.
I needed my family to know that I had a plan to beat the medical world & all was under control - most importantly, I needed them to hold it together as a family as I will for them.
Over the next few days I shared my situation with close friends so as to let them know what will happen whilst I go through treatment & not to be alarmed when they see me, but to be confident that all will be good.
So every 21st of June (my birthday), I say to my self “LIVE & WEAR WITHOUT CARE” then look for my Niece & Nephew to hold onto as if it were my last chance.
Now you know where “live & wear without care” comes from & why I try & emphasis to not sweat over the details that really don’t matter, living well is far more important that dying to find the perfect fitting suit or losing sleep over the haters on “social media” yes they are a breed that find strength behind the anonymity of an alias.
Every year I repost this with some changes, the obvious changes since last year is marriage to my friend and wife @ang_iee As well as @theoskardaily . These two as well as my immediate family keep me centred and grounded.
So, See you all tomorrow, next week, next month & next year!
Great day to crack the seal on the new GS Imperial kit. Some great details that can only be appreciated in person.. #latergram #itelefono5s #vscocam #mrs_wongs_studio

Rise High, Pleats Full, Can’t Lose
The advice that you should always avoid high-rise, pleated trousers - or that only heavier set men should wear pleats - is one of the most tired and wrongheaded ideas in menswear. Especially among fashion writers. Above is the photographer behind Guerreisms wearing a pair of bespoke trousers made for him by Salvatore Ambrosi, which he commissioned through The Armoury. The cut is on the rakish side of Italian tailoring, but as you can see — it looks great.
With suits, a higher rise is especially nice, since it helps you avoid the dreaded shirt triangle that Jesse talked about. But even with odd trousers (meaning trousers that aren’t meant to be worn with a suit jacket), the cut can also be flattering if it’s done well.
Duke Ellington once said of music: “If it sounds good and feels good, then it is good.” The rules about whether or not you should wear pleats is silly. Maybe you like them, or maybe you don’t, but it’s always best to just go by your eye.

BRAVO.. PHUCING WORD..
What do fashion writers know anyway, all they do is flip through other fashion magazines..
