These photographs aren’t mine: all credits go to the rightful owner!

A few advertisements from 1918 I couldn’t resist but to share: all kinds of menswear, both formal and informal.

Nothing left to be said, for the pictures speak for themselves: furthermore I’m quite speechless about how beautiful these adverts are. 

classic silhouettes never go out of style..

Jason Basmajian of Gieves & Hawkes:
“Art and fashion both reflect culture and the mood around us. They are powerful because they communicate ideas, demonstrate creativity, exhilarate, provoke thought, or allow you to just revel in their respective beauties. Both are extensions of personality, yet deeply individual and subjective. Sure, anyone can buy ‘good art’ but anyone can also buy into fashion, especially if they have the money. However, what is really important is an individual’s sense of style. This is what comes naturally, it informs our choices in both worlds and is a reflection of how we see ourselves and showcase this to others. Style is a code on how we lie our lives and want to be remembered.”

Abercrombie Moose Soon to Be Extinct
Abercrombie and Fitch, the 20th century sporting goods store turned controversial mallwear label, has seen sales decline significantly over the last few years, and the most recent dip is prompting a change: Abercrombie is dropping its moose logo from most of its clothing.
If you’re hoping a return to Abercrombie’s tweed-and-shotgun roots, you’ll be disappointed (and frankly you’re probably well outside of Abercrombie’s target demo). The chain attributes its loss of business to the rise of fast fashion retailers like H+M, and intends to steer its designs away from its dominant copy-of-a-copy-of-prep theme toward more of-the-moment designs. Safe to say the prep pastiche moment is over.
Teenagers’ taste can be more nuanced and sensitive than they often get credit for. This represents something of a sea change in tween/teen clothing tastes that’s been coming for awhile, as kids’ consume more, often cheaper and borderline disposable clothing and are arguably more familiar with trickle-down trends from runways and celebrities than ever. No longer is an embroidered pony or moose a signifier of cool.
