Hope you all started well into the new week! Mine started well although still feeling the weekend 😜 I like those outfits that scream “I’m different”. I believe they make a feast to the eye, or the other way around... Here in one of my favorite color ways, military inspired. Finally received my pants by @luxire_com. In short... totally worth the wait 👌🏼🙏
I was recently told that #shantung was seasonally inappropriate outside of summer, and that to suggest otherwise meant I wasn't committed to #menswear . Almost certainly intended tongue in cheek, this quip does, unfortunately, illustrate the the elevation of sanctified "Rules," pronounced by some self-proclaimed authority, that for some becomes exaltation. For my part, I'd rather skip the doctrine and stick to substance. If that be heresy, then brand me a heretic.
Because I'd be hard pressed to say this tie, in the context of a textured chambray shirt and textured tweed jacket, is seasonally or texturally out of place. Sure, I could have chosen from among other textures for fall or winter (challis, wool, cashmere etc.). But the same is true in summer (knit, matka, boucle, linen). And well before #menswear , shantung was a year-round textile (not that the old "rules" are any more sanctified for me than the new). Style is not the slavish ability to draw a single prescribed arrow from a limited quiver. That's fashion. Style is the ability to draw ANY arrow from an UNLIMITED quiver and the skill to find your mark with ALL of them.
