That's stylish? I'm grateful that equality has allowed men to be as seduced by overpriced vanity as women, I guess.

Don't cough so much, that suit dosen't come with a hanky.

Here in Texas I'd get beat up for wearing most of that stuff.

I do like the suit, though. I don't think I can do a leather hoodie, though.

Cool project. I just wish there was a little more overlap between "stylish" and "Things that don't make you look like a manga parody."

Not the dude's fault, I guess, but I just can't see the detailing in these dark photos of black clothes.

My problem with fashion blogs/sites for men is that so many lean heavily towards supertrendy luxury goods. For example: Kempt, NotCouture (more for women than men, but they manage 1 or 2 mens' posts a week), Style.com

I end up looking at Notcouture and The Sartorialist for ideas, if not for actual purchases. The forums I've seen are better, but the discussions eventually turn to the highest of high-end, limited-production artisans. Styleforum, SuperFuture (note the separate subforum for denim), Ask Andy.

Anyone have any good "ideas" blogs like Sartorialist or clothiers that follow the style of Freeman's Sporting Club or Old Town Clothing (especially at more affordable prices)?

Freeman's sporting club is wonderful, I get my Yearly Haircut there, but the lack of price tags ...intimates me. I want to wear everything they have, but I don't think I have enough credit.

(dear god even the buttons are hand and union made!)

I never visit projects, so thanks for posting this.

Thanks for the props and snark. I'm not a rabid fashionista, but it's one of my hobbies, and fun precisely because I don't take it super seriously. I do the blog with a friend, and he tends to post stuff that's a little more costly (I generally don't buy very expensive clothing - maybe one or two really nice pieces a year that i wear ALL THE TIME) - but even the stuff that is unrealistic to purchase can get your mental gears churning about putting outfits together.

(though really all you need to do is thoroughly dig through your local H&M once every few months)

You could also feature a "what are they thinking?" section, because some styles need questioning. Why draw the focus to the wearer's mid-chest?

I've never thought of porisitution as a carrer choice before, but if someone bought me this I'd have to seriously consider it.

prostitution. Porisiytion sounds like selling the favors of porridge.

I bookmarked this as soon as I saw it on Projects. I can definitely see this being a HUGE hit. It would be great to see a category listing, though.
