How to fold a pocket square
The 25th post anniversary of Thrill.
I don’t drive fast; I drive young.
One can argue that living in the 21st century is difficult. However, we all battle different demons with different weapons. When we experience a first world problem, patience is not one of the qualities we possess.
Dear Palestinians, Israelis, Egyptians, Syrians, Americans, Iraqis, Afghans, Ukrainians, Central Africans, Somalis, Russians, Iranians and whoever kills in the name of religion, race, diamonds, gold, money, fame, resources or history,
I am sorry…
Sam Shipley & Jeff Halmos: Invest in a well-tailored suit. Although the ‘buy two suits, get three shirts, seven belts, 96 socks, and 34 ties FREE’ deals are tempting, go with something nice and get it tailored to fit you perfectly.
Gianluca Isaia: Get a suit you really like even if it’s not the safe choice. Buying another blue or gray suit makes you another sheep in the herd. I want to be the black sheep. In Neapolitan dialect, there’s an expression, fare una sciammeria, which means to have a wild, passionate, crazy night of sex. They don’t come easily—you need to make a bit of effort. To get one you need to invest money—take a woman out to the right restaurant, buy her flowers, do vacations. The money spent will bring you pleasure. It’s the same with a suit—you need to spend money to get the most from one.
Jeremy Hackett: Nothing spoils a good suit like a pair of cheap shoes. Properly made ones are a real investment. I’ve always been of the opinion that it’s better to own one item that’s beautifully made than three inferior products.
Mark Twain: Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.
Garrett Leight: Get yourself a nice tailored suit. Girls love a guy in a great suit, and it’s really obvious when it doesn’t fit you. Plus, every man needs at least one for weddings and special occasions. Dark navy or black are the most timeless.
Tom Ford: I don’t believe in playing around much with suit cuts. I like a fairly classic shape that gives a man strong shoulders, a fitted waist, and long legs. Classic simplicity always works.
Being male is a matter of birth, being a man is a matter of age, but being a gentleman is a matter of choice.
