Another blog..

It's all about 'web presence' apparently, and as I'd like to try and shift the vast amount of clothes I've found in local charity stores and online, I decided to do a blog. It's just about the clothes, no lifestyle defining moments. Just a man, who goes into charity shops on his lunch hour and buys what he likes. English, American, Italian and Peruvian. Please feel free to follow, and I'll update it when I can.

LA PETITE BOURGEOISIE!

Thanks.

No color wheel? Your fans are clamoring for the color wheel!

Re: Another blog..

The emails keep coming SMF, ''what are going to deal next with the colour wheel'' they ask, ''shove it up my arse!'' I reply.. smile

Jim the shirt is at the tailors being peered at and prodded. I'd like to do a strictly Ivy blog, but is there any need for one. I just want a blog that reflects my clothing journey. From what I buy in the charity shops, to what I learn from selling and fitting. You know just a broad take on things. Hope people appricate its not trying to be a lifestyle blog, it is strictly clothes... good and bad, but always interesting I hope.

I'll read most any blog as long it is honest and genuine.

Good luck with it.

Re: Another blog..

So why the hosility & where's the imagined threat to him that motivates Chen's malice & bile if he's so secure in what he's doing?

Oo Bop's  is a personal blog by a real person. Not a scummy cash in by a here-today-gone-tomorrow opportunist.

I note he doesn't dare tangle with Big Joh Gall anymore... No insights on JG's blog, Chens?

- Out Classed, Out Sussed & Out Faced.

Or, to cut to the quick, simply out Ivied.

Oo Bop actaully cares about stuff. That's why his blog is better, Chens.

Same deal with JG.

JG has no visible competition; not even from the illustrious Weejun.  The simple reason for this is that John is always full of surprises.  From soul balladry to Mark Rothko, from Morandi to Hubert Swaine.  Clothes and shoes, too.

It's '87 at the absolute latest from JS.

Oddly, it's not that well worn. I don't wear White very well. Troy was aways as flimsy as that in the collar.

Re: Another blog..

The cloth is very supple, to be fair it is unmarked. It wasn't a dig, but unless things are kept in tupperware a bit of age is going to show through. I'm more than happy with it!

Re: Another blog..

Oh no - No offence taken. The last to see it was Phil Stedman who considered it worn out never having seen a brand new Troy & realising that they were always as limp as a vicar's handshake, even fresh out of the packet.

That one has been in a suitcase for most of its life.

Limp as it gets I don't see that collar resisting an Everest one bit.

Re: Another blog..

If Oo Bop is to blog, I guess we'll just have to get used to his, uh, idiosyncratic use of the English language.  He needs a guiding hand perhaps: someone to look over his shoulder.  The Samuels' Johnson and Pepys are, however, dead.  James, though, had a decent public school education; was probably familiarised with Cato, Horace et al. so we might have to look to him for proof-reading.  Or - I suppose - it might be a way for PP to earn some extra pocket money.

Better to have blogged and lost, than to have never blogged at all.

Or not. The position of proofreader is open though.

I can't believe Dr. Emmet Brown is giving him so much jip.

Did you find that video last time you went over to The Wardrobe?

I'm not playing with those lads anymore. They deleted my best comments.
