  7. The SPECTRE Press Conference

    ‘The Suits of James Bond’ turns its very critical eye to what the next film’s actors wore for the press conference. Great/terrifying attention to detail.

  13. Folded Up Shirt P0rn - Page 211

    I was just thinking yesterday that casual shirts (ie, worn with no tie) don’t need top buttons, and then I came across these (bottom of page). Very nice.

  14. Neapolitan tweed jacket – Elia Caliendo

    Mmmm, yes, maybe that’s the thing. Only *cough* €2800. So maybe not.

    I thought I’d saved this before, but obviously not. Not that I’ve ever needed it, but still, interesting.

    Some good advice, but also for the interesting comments, especially from a couple of guys talking about do’s and dont’s in City firms.

  17. Loden top coat from Vergallo

    Nice coat (as you’d expect for €2000). I like the idea of lapels that button up like this, but this one looks somehow unfinished when done up.

    Links to previous posts on Permanent Style about the different aspects.

    On the difficulty, or pointlessness, of having casual clothes bespoke tailored.
