Fop Fight: Chapter 3 [25 May 2005|07:35pm]

Has anyone read the last editorial at dandyism.net, "Counterparry Ripsoste" (there are probably a few spelling mistakes in that title - and yes, I do love creative punctuation [1])?

Did they take my initial post for anything else than faked anger? I'm having fun since the beginning. I'll post a more serious answer later, because for now, I can only laugh. :D

[1] I'd be glad to see how creative their punctuation can be when they write essays in French. ;)

Their article under the cut, for future referenceCollapse )

The Art of Wearing Clothes [25 May 2005|11:30pm]
[I fear that as a recluse, I have no letters of introduction to offer. My apologies.]

Much as an avid bird watcher would keep an Audubon guide handy, I've found Esquire Fashions For Men a helpful (if slightly dated) source in identifying a well-dressed gentleman, should I ever happen to encounter one.

Of particular note to the fine denizens of refinement is the final chapter, an essay on The Art of Wearing Clothes by George Frazier.

an excerptCollapse )

Best regards,
