You know when you want to say something and someone else describes more eloquently than you ever could? That’s how I feel about Simon Crompton’s article on how fit is the most important factor in men’s style. If you haven’t read it for whatever reason, basically it states that too many male fashion followers put too much importance on brands and not enough on fit and design.
Having seen pictures on a fashion forum of someone squeezing their thighs into a pair of Nudie Thin Finns that were too short, this point can’t be overstated. It’s easy to get drawn to wearing a brand because of their prestige, but if you look like your borrowing clothes from somebody else it’s best to leave it on the shelf.
