2016 Classic Menswear in Review

Wow.  You all posted so many pictures in 2016.  Like, thousands.  Most of you, waaaay more than me.  As @Roycru stated: “Thanks awfully to all those who post pictures of themselves and who don’t get discouraged by the occasional bizarre comments.” Indeed, it takes persistence, a desire to improve, and perhaps a touch of narcissism

erik mannby's pitti 91 recap

Pitti passes by so quickly. There is so much build up beforehand, and then… poof, it’s over.

I wore a suit to Pitti today. Never again. I just can’t do it; can’t look as effortlessly elegant as these people. And by people, I primarily mean people like Erik and his posse of giant vikings, all of whom are a) hilarious and b) really well-dressed. Anyway, I wore a suit, but it has
