See the poster behind this guy…’women are the new men.’ Glad to know I won’t need to pick up the tab any longer…
Street Style: NYC
It’s not even a contest as Mr. McQueen here knows. Belstaff by a wide margin….
I have worked with Sid and consider him one of the tasty cats out there doing it on the retail front. He has taken the cliche American look and made it real and right as rain. He certainly understands that style is an amalgamation of many things that come to bear on a man and his taste and on top of all that he is a real gentleman. As any well dressed well articulated man is…Keep up the good fight, Brother. Cody Hammond
Combining elements of sprezzatura, ivy league, prep, southern gentleman and modern tailoring, Sid Mashburn has become a fixture in the menswear retail scene, beloved by customers and editors alike. WeAreTheMarket caught up with Mashburn to talk a bit about his menswear business and extract a couple of style tips.
Style is the answer to everything.
Fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing.
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without style.
To do a dangerous that with style is what I call ART.
Bullfighting can be an art, boxing can be an art, loving can be an art.
Not many have style, not many can keep style.
I’ve seen dogs with more style than men, although not many dogs have style
Cats have it with abundance.
When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun, that was style.
For sometimes people give you style.
Joan of Arc had style,
John the Baptist,
I have met men in jail with style. I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail. Style is a difference, a way of doing, and a way of being done.
As always L.B.M 1911 has managed to create a beautiful new collection! The S/S 2012 collection is just like before completely deconstructed and the fabrics are washed to give the jackets that casual and unique feel. The double breasted blazer looks really nice and is currently my favorite, wearing an unlined DB jacket decreases the formality so you don’t look silly.
To summarize, they do what Italians do best, take something classic and update it so it fits a contemporary guy. And that the jackets range between approximately 350-500 euros doesn’t make them less attractive. Also it’s nice to see a jacket without the patch pockets, first one from L.B.M 1911 I’ve seen yet.
benedictfroggatt: Great winter trousers
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of these in the post. Ovadia & Sons lambswool flannel trousers in heathered blue, lambswool cargo trousers in light grey and a burgundy/deep green plaid wool tie.
These pictures don’t do them justice — the blue has a fantastic richness about it that pops out (in the best sense), the cargo’s texture is visually gorgeous and the colour combination on the tie is perfectly balanced. That’s just visually speaking — the trousers are remarkably comfortable and oh-so soft to the touch. Can’t wait to get these back from the tailors and start wearing them about town.
I have a lot of time for the Ovadia brothers. In my opinion they’ve been consistently bringing out superb, well considered products over the past year. My congratulations, keep up the great work and thank you!
