  25. Mens Vintage Clothing - Suits - Harris Tweed Jackets

    UK online store of used jackets, coats, etc, reasonable prices.

    Put This On’s posts on getting suits, shirts, etc to fit well.

  35. Put This On • The Seven-Shoe Wardrobe The longer I write about…

    I was wondering what something like this would look like yesterday, then came across this.

  36. Summer Style When You’re Not Gary Cooper I don’t know if you…

    For this: “on clothing forums … an argument erupts, a bunch of random strangers weigh in, some vociferous poster throws down a 1930s illustration from ‘Apparel Arts’ or a photo of the Duke of Windsor, and everyone simmers down.”

  37. Outside Influences :: Outlier ~ Part 1 | Carryology

    Two-part interview with Outlier about clothes and bags, fabrics, etc. Long, but I’d love to read more details about fabrics, patterns, technologies, etc. US-made fabrics are very limited in colours because the manufacturers’ main customers are the military.

  38. Apple’s 1980s clothing catalogue in pictures - Telegraph

    I expect everyone has or will link to this, but I bet I’ll want to look at it again at some point. Also, supports my idea that anything from, say, 15+ years ago that appears online looks *very* old.

    Great stuff. And yet I still found myself thinking “this is so complicated!” (via Stellar)

  40. Chris Heathcote: anti-mega: a new fashion aesthetic

  42. Belstaff | Official Website

    Heavily retro rather than futury, although there’s still something slightly SF about some of the jackets. Also, the coat Sherlock wore.

  43. Saul Griffith and Jonathan Bachrach’s algorithmically-designed “DARPA Hoodie” - Boing Boing

    Interesting. Want to find more modern/future-y but still wearable clothes. Any ideas? (via @GreatDismal)

    A forum for professionals. You know, for when Ask Andy About Clothes and Style Forum don’t quite get down to the nitty gritty.

  45. Coriandr / lottielodge / Handmade socks, realistic price

    I love this kind of thing. I’d like to see how much your average mass-produced-in-China garment should cost if the workers were paid UK minimum wage.

  46. Jackets from Scottevest - Vests and Jackets by SeV - Men’s and Women’s Jacket Store

    Good looking jackets designed for geeks with requirements for many, many pockets. Shame it’s mail order only. (via TUAW)
