A Guide To Chambray Shirts – Part Two: Modern Brands Share Share this post Subscribe 0 Comments Sunday, April 21st 2024Tags: Shirts ||- Begin Content -|| By Manish Puri In part one of this guide, I provided a brief history of chambray and why it became the de facto choice for work shirts, before turning my focus to casual shirts on the market that are reproductions of traditional US work shirt models. In this second part, I’m covering chambray shirts made by brands that tweak and update the historical templates - shortening them for modern sensibilities, removing a po ..read more

Collars are more flattering with tailoring – but do you care? Wednesday, April 17th 2024Tags: Suits Share Share this post Subscribe 90 Comments ||- Begin Content -|| I’ve regularly worn T-shirts or crewnecks under tailoring over the years. Not as frequently as a collared shirt, but when you’re always looking for more ways to wear suits and jackets, the more relaxed look of a T-shirt has perennial appeal.  I’ve written before about what kinds of T-shirts and sweaters work. Tips in that article include knitted tees over normal ones, the virtues of pattern, and wh ..read more

Are you a menswear snob? Share Share this post Subscribe 35 Comments Friday, April 12th 2024 ||- Begin Content -|| By Manish Puri Forgive me for starting with such a blunt question.  I know that, in common parlance, ‘snob’ is a pejorative term. However, when it comes to matters of dressing, it’s worth recalling the words of Yves Saint Laurent who said, “we must never confuse elegance with snobbery”. So, in this context, given there seems to be room for confusion, I don’t really consider ‘snob’ to be an insulting epithet - because surely my accusers meant I was 'ele ..read more

If you buy an item of clothing that sits in one of those rings you’re still doing better than half the landfill-peddled-as-fashion you’ll find on the average UK high street. If you buy something that lies in the union of two of them, you’ve made a ..read more

Marchesan ||- Begin Content -|| By Manish Puri There’s not exactly a shortage of quality secondhand and vintage stores in Stockholm. Take a stroll along Hornsgatan for example - a busy road running through the Södermalm neighbourhood - and within just a few hundred metres you’ll pass Broadway & Sons, Herr Judit and Ruth & Raoul (to name just a few). Interestingly, it was explained to me by local friends that Sweden ..read more

I’m going on holiday Saturday, April 6th 2024 Share Share this post Subscribe 16 Comments ||- Begin Content -|| For the past 16 years I’ve never taken a holiday from publishing and replying to comments on Permanent Style. I normally take a break on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but that’s about it.  You could call it dedication if you want, but I suspect it’s more just paranoia that if I don’t log in and keep everyone happy, the PS audience will sort of drift away, taking everything we’ve built with it. There’s a conversation there perhaps about running a business ..read more

Wearing black shoes with jeans Monday, April 1st 2024Tags: Style bryceland's Edward Green Permanent style Ralph Lauren Rubato Share Share this post Subscribe 51 Comments ||- Begin Content -|| This is something I’ve had questions about recently - I assume because fashion generally has taken a turn towards black and, combined with the general casualisation going, black shoes and jeans have become a more common styling choice. So the answer is yes, obviously you can wear the two together. But not as easily as something like brown suede, and not in as many ways.  O ..read more
