fashion profile - brice pattison.

brice pattison is a designer for the brand todd snyder.

"there are things out there that I appreciate on other people that i wouldn't wear myself because I know it wouldn't be an authentic representation of myself."

I do believe a man should put his clothes on thoughtfully, but the end goal is to not look like you've been overly conscious to the way you're dressing."

"Style is about illustrating who you are in what you wear."

fashion profile - street etiquette.

Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs are the founders of the, now, world famous men's fashion blog street etiquette.

"Style is every day stuff. It's not brand oriented, it's more fit and personal preference; fit a quality... it's more about you"

THE ABC OF MENS FASHION - STREET ETIQUETTE from Hardy Amies on Vimeo.

It's one of the most intimate things about a person, you know, the way you can connect with a person on the street or your friends. While Fashion is more of a broad stroke, while style is more of a fine stroke.

abc's of men's fashion - 58. 

fashion vs style.

money talks, fashion doesn't have to. Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it. 

we can tell you what we like, what we think is fashionable, and what styles we dig, but we can't spoon feed you your own style: you have to create that part on your own.

pyramid.

there are three basic factors to any piece of clothing that must come into play:

fit                                           fabric                                   style

 

Fit

It doesn't matter how nice your clothing is if it doesn't fit you well. Talk to a tailor or a suitor (suiter? maker of suits?) and find out how certain pieces should fit. Do an dang google search for crap's sake, it's not that hard. Make sure you're buying the right sizes and that those sizes are fitting you correctly and helping you look as good as possible. A nice piece of of clothing that fits like garbage will look like garbage and cost too much. 

 

Fabric

you'll want to ensure your clothing is made of quality fabrics and put together with care. One of the biggest problems I have with H&M stuff (not all of it but a majority of it) is that the fabrics are all lightweight poly blends that don't breathe or stay together well. Yes, a piece can look amazing even if it's made with cheap fabrics, but A) it won't last very long and b) it will often wrinkle or fade extremely quickly and look cheap right away.

 

fashion

Find your own fashion sweet spot. Don't [only] rely on other people to tell you what's "in" and what's not. Find out how current and trendy or how classic you want your style to be and purchase pieces accordingly. Just because a celebrity is wearing some outlandish and cool jacket, doesn't mean everyone should rush out to buy something similar. In fact, in most cases this is a terrible idea. Find your style, your fashion zone, and be comfortable with it.

 

find the best way to do you.

Quality.

"If you use it every day, buy the very best. If you don’t, don’t." The goal here is to have fewer items in your closet that look better and last longer. Think of the items you wear often, whether blue jeans or a navy suit, buy one and be done. A $200 pair of selvedge jeans will outlast four pairs of regular Levi’s and look better in the process. But socks? Socks are socks, man--buy some that look good but don't spend an arm and a leg.

abc's of men's fashion - 53


“Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
Jesus
Socrates
Caesar
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.” 
 

― Charles Bukowski

wardrobe.

"To discuss a man’s wardrobe is really to discuss a man’s life. For the kind of clothes he has in it reveals his way of life; and their condition and degree of fashionableness will show his character…”

abc's of Men's Fashion 50.

“The man who, as is often said, can get away with wearing a trench coat over his dinner jacket, or an old school tie for a belt, is the one who in fact understands best the rules of proper dress and can bend them to suit his own personality and requirements.”
