There are common threads in the ways Harry Styles wears tailoring. These common threads run through different stylists, and seem to indicate a deeply personal style. I'm going to break down that style, that language, and provide you with practical insights.
I recently had a chance to sit down with Buzz Tang of The Anthology. What follows is a deep dive into not only what makes great clothing, but the spirit of a modern bespoke brand.
I'll explore a few different shades of brown linen. The unevenness of linen helps highlight the depth of each color, and actually helps recall the Maillard reaction that makes food look so good.
Eveningwear makes me happy. It's tailoring that's exclusively for parties. No business: just weddings, galas, holiday parties, fancy dinner parties... It's a symbol of celebration, and here, I'm going to celebrate it. This is the first album, and the simplest—classic black tie.
Note that this is mostly just a directory listing. There's a lot of guidance out there about how to pick a tailoring house. All I'll note is to try not to get lost in quality—f you're going to splurge on a bespoke tailor, you have to appreciate the house style.
It's time for another summer treat. Crunchy linen in a rich, chocolatey shade of brown will sweeten up your day. Time for a sugar rush.
I've been holding back the urge to do this again. But this Ring Jacket sale needs to be acknowledged. So here we are.
TL;DR -- this suit has only grown on me over time. If you don't need your suit immediately, and have had a hard time finding a good fit off the rack, Black Lapel provides an excellent value.
Quick and dirty: a suit is a set of matching garments, consisting of a jacket, pants (or a skirt, or something), and optionally, a vest/waistcoat. They have to match.
