Journey To The South: packing for my Sydney visit 
With naught to do over the fleeting semester break, I shall journey to Sydney for something of a respite from Queensland over the next week. I begrudgingly admit that there are particulars within Brisbane’s cityscape that agree with me. However, for the most part I long to do some traveling around Australia’s truly great metropolises before my time studying in this strange (yet beautiful) country is at an end. 
While in NSW I shall endeavor to visit all the familiar #menswear temples - Incu, Capsule, and Inventory to name a few - but the main purpose of my pilgrimage is to finally stand within the sanguine halls of patrickjohnsontailors for a long overdue meeting with an esteemed establishment. Let the record show I shamelessly declared it “Australia’s best menswear store" not more than a year ago, an opinion that holds fast to this day. 
Here’s what yours truly is lugging all the way south in an effort to brave the cold:
Suitsupply ‘beater’ suit in navy herringbone (S110 VBC) 
LBM 1911 cotton blazer (3 patch pockets, surprisingly versatile even in the winter)
Drumohr flecked rollneck (42% cashmere/58% wool mix) 
Knit ties (Drakes wool/Knottery NYC silk) 
MP di Massimo Piombo shirt (semi-spread collar w/ medium stripe detail) 
Club Monaco 6 oz. foulard 
Club Monaco knit wool bomber 
Todd Snyder x CHAMPION sweatshirt (for running around museums & galleries in) 
Meermin MTO austerity brogue
NOT PICTURED:
Adidas Stan Smiths (the ROTM kind, nothing fancy)
Club Monaco sweatpants (for cosyboy feels) 
A large volume of content involving acquisitions made in Sydney will be forthcoming early next month but be sure to follow along on my Instagram if you’re interested in seeing aerial views of espresso cups. That sounded far less sardonic than I’d like.

OOTD 12-10-2013
As I edge toward the end of my initial brush with tertiary study its important to stay active in the blogosphere. Just as cramming and daily morning coffee have become a routinized part of my life, so too has musing on well made things and the intersection between fashion and style. I haven’t delivered an outfit post for over 3 months now, and it is with this imbalance in mind that me and master Jeffrey set out to get back into a healthy content making routine. 
I recently managed to extract from Yoox a - relatively - inexpensive Piombo sportcoat. I can’t believe its taken me this long to supplement my wardrobe with such an essential, but in the midst of all my seasonal outerwear fervor priorities fell by the wayside. The navy blazer, in its various iterations, has long been a part of every #menswear subset. Here in Australia, its doubly important to find such an essential in the appropriate material. Piombo makes this incredibly comfortable double breasted version, in washed cotton twill suited to the temperate climate that permeates our everyday lives. Its no surprise that their take embodies the relaxed aesthetic Southern Italians are now (in)famous for but it is exactly this casualness that make it suitable for just about any occasion (I even paired it with sweatpants on one occasion and was no worse for wear). In the interest of posterity, I will echo what has already been said by mypantalones regarding Piombo’s fit: SIZE UP. As a label with serious ‘fashion’ credentials Piombo can be quite slim and short. 
Thanks to Japanese menswear publications like Free & Easy, I also have an interest in white that has exploded into full on fetishism. I decided therefore to wear the Piombo DB with my white cotton trousers from Band of Outsiders. Again, these are incredibly slim and the bunching in my knee as the pants taper is evidence to that fact. But you could easily substitute these with something with a straight leg opening and flat front (Ambrosi anyone?). 
If the navy/mid gray color combination is affectionately termed ‘security guard’ then it stands to reason that navy/white could just as easily be dubbed ‘prep school mariner’. Regardless of its more traditionalist connotations, I’m always incredibly at ease wearing these two colors together. ‘Safe’ color combinations yield payoffs in other areas: say the ability to deploy a suitably rakish pocket square or go for the loudest madder tie. Far from disturbing how good your ensemble looks, such affectations add points of interest to the outfit. They add visual interest to the interplay between navy and white, also helping to offset the ‘preppy’ or ‘trad’ overtones that can often drown such an outfit. 
As for the umbrella: a thoughtful gift, borne of utilitarian necessity, begs appreciation. That and I owe it to my girlfriend to more often use the things she buys me in public, good taste loves (though it might not necessarily need) an audience.

A Special Thank You To All And Here’s To 2014

Over the last 2 days this blog has surpassed something of a small milestone, on a personal level it would be disingenuous of me if I did not admit I am honored by the number of people who voluntarily choose to follow this space.

While my writing on both the Pins and within Tumblr has come to a stop-start over the past weeks (travel is the death of productivity in my case) I will endeavor to remedy this and provide a little content until school starts again in the new year. 

Once again, much gratitude must be sent into the blogosphere for all the love people have shown me over the years.

On a related note, for those so inclined you can follow me through my food and travel lens at styleternity on Instagram. Sometimes - and often frequently - there are also posts about #menswear. 

Happy 2014.

And now for something completely different…

If you’re a long time glancer at this piece of poorly curated webspace devoted to all things #menswear, big blessings. My instagram handle is styleternity, so feel free to jump on there and check what’s going on if you’re sick of the blog. There’s little bits and pieces on there that you won’t find over here on Tumblr (all of them still awful).

OOTD 23-06-2013 ‘Half a suit/A Full Outfit’
Aside from the odd image thrown up, I haven’t really been putting  content on here for over 3 weeks. Sorry about it. With exams at a close, and 3 days of very excessive drinking in my system I was ready - read not at all - to ride around in the late afternoon light and take some photos. 
The ill wizard dude JJ was back on it, so we decided to head down to my city’s local botanical gardens (I thought we all had one of those) and do some v relaxed v wintery photos. I recently purchased a full DB suit from Suitsupply and after peeping a great outfit from Rose & Born was sufficiently inspired to do my own take on the ‘suit as a separate’ motif. 
Wearing a traditional suit jacket as a blazer is a very risky affair: the skirt is often too long, the colour difficult to pare with separates and the whole vibe can stink of a clothing item (unless unstructured) that is simply too ‘formal’. What got me about the Rose & Born image was the jacket’s softness, the length and shoulder of the navy DB made it perfect to wear as a separate and so I attempted to replicate this vibe with the joint I pulled from Suitsupply’s SS 2013 collection. 
The jacket is part of Suitsupply’s typical 6 x 2 Soho fit: the shoulders are softly constructed with a tapered waist, the fabric is a wool-mohair blend (from Vitale Barberis) and the shortened skirt and the curvature on the peak lapel make this an ideal piece to be worn without the matching trousers. While this would not be climate appropriate for the winters of Murica or Paris, it works perfectly as the external layer in the relatively warm Australian winter. Also note, pattern overlays like windowpanes and checks really take centre stage in casual outfits, and work with neutrals to become the focal point of attention. 
Throw some turtleneck action on and a pair of wide wale cords (which still need to go in for the alteration chop) and you have yourself a very louche outfit for most of Australia’s fall period, scarf optional.

I recently purchased a full DB suit from Suitsupply and after peeping a great outfit from Rose & Born was sufficiently inspired to do my own take on the ‘suit as a separate’ motif. 
Wearing a traditional suit jacket as a blazer is a very risky affair: the skirt is often too long, the colour difficult to pare with separates and the whole vibe can stink of a clothing item (unless unstructured) that is simply too ‘formal’. What got me about the Rose & Born image was the jacket’s softness, the length and shoulder of the navy DB made it perfect to wear as a separate and so I attempted to replicate this vibe with the joint I pulled from Suitsupply’s SS 2013 collection. 
The jacket is part of Suitsupply’s typical 6 x 2 Soho fit: the shoulders are softly constructed with a tapered waist, the fabric is a wool-mohair blend (from Vitale Barberis) and the shortened skirt and the curvature on the peak lapel make this an ideal piece to be worn without the matching trousers. While this would not be climate appropriate for the winters of Murica or Paris, it works perfectly as the external layer in the relatively warm Australian winter. Also note, pattern overlays like windowpanes and checks really take centre stage in casual outfits, and work with neutrals to become the focal point of attention. 
Throw some turtleneck action on and a pair of wide wale cords (which still need to go in for the alteration chop) and you have yourself a very louche outfit for most of Australia’s fall period, scarf optional.

Having An Old Friend For Dinner…

When I think of a fictitious character that embodies the Paul Stuart aesthetic I am inextricably drawn to serial killers. Patrick Bateman is the sure-fire choice (Brett Easton Ellis name drops the brand at length in his most controversial novel) however NBC’s version of Hannibal is another dark character who really embodies the Paul Stuart style. A wealthy aesthete and renowned medical scholar, Hannibal’s anatomical eye for tailoring is something often touched upon in literature. NBC’s version of the infamous cannibalistic serial killer has yet to find himself incarcerated and thus favours a more public display of dandyism.

Mainline Paul Stuart is consistent with the type of everyday attire favoured by Baltimore’s most sociopathic psychiatrist. Its construction is soft with a full canvas, horn butttons and Italian fabrics, while the plaid lends a sense of Hannibal’s more theatrical darker side. Its Anglo-centric (more so than RL) with a couple of old world details. The trousers are made flat fronted with a side tab: something seen less on ‘trendy’ pants. More than anything Hannibal is a great artist, and his dress should reflect his eye for subtlety in texture, mixing and colour. In keeping with Hannibal’s old world sensibility, two footwear options could pair well. Antiqued Edward Greens or hand burnished Paul Stuart Carnabys are appropriate for his office and are created in the English benchmade style: with a Goodyear welt, hand finishing and boar bristle.

Congrats NBC on season 2! It will be good to partake in another slice of veal tongue with the good doctor…

In between attempting to find a working DDL link for the Mad Men season 6 premier and furiously cramming for my intergovernmental immunities examination Jeffrey and I found time to head to the city. In the course of our other work he took some quickly staged snaps of me as we went about our business.
This part of Australia is finally laying off the whole 'Dante's Inferno' tip and is becoming pleasantly cool. So today I thought I’d share - for your amusement - a very casual lazyboy outfit I donned.
This cold weather kit can be improved with the addition of wide wale cords (my favourite in a forest green - Ovadia & Sons are doing great takes on the corduroy trouser), a large knitted scarf and a ribbed sweater. I really just wanted an excuse to throw on my CP chukkas and Club Monaco gloves to be real though.

OUR PICK OF THE WEEK - Saphir Renovateur

Here at Styleternity, I’m all about that long lasting sartorial quality. As somebody caught up in this whole #menswear thing I think we sometimes attach too much importance to the ‘next’ big purchase. The problem with this obsession is that your closet fills up with a whole bunch of stank product that you thought it was an appropriate idea to purchase ‘at the time’ while the things that are heavy in your day to day rotation get worn into the ground without proper maintenance/alteration.

Nowhere is the problem more apparent than footwear: the foundation of any solid kit, fresh footwear sets the scene for a correspondingly great outfit. Unfortunately many of us lack the time and patience to really care for our shoes the way we should, and while Saphir Renovateur will not make a regular and thorough cleaning of your favorite C & J unnecessary its a pretty good temporary fix when you don’t have the time to stomp out a proper shoe shine.

Made with mink oil, the Saphir renovateur is the very very next level version of an all points leather treatment. Throw that ratchet Zanolin Kiwi shit into your nearest incinerator because Saphir is the benchmark when it comes to footwear maintenance. This oil based cleaner re-hydrates and cleans leather while simultaneously giving it a low matte shine. Used alone its a great temporary fix or as part of a routine (with separate polish and buffing) will result in that glass like patina the lads at The Armoury have been on for some time already.

RAPID REBLOGS
- (‘A series where we talk some more about what we decide to reblog’)

I’ve been posting alot of videos in the ‘Rapid Reblogs’ series for the last few weeks and this is because (chiefly):
a. My slothful herb ass finds itself kicking around on Youtube a significant amount more than usual these days (assessment time I see you homie). As a result, I’m inclined to share - fancy way for saying recycle - stuff that people more talented than I have created

b. The quality of the style/style aligned videos is on that silent OG rise-up. Whereas the majority of Youtube’s landscape is littered with ironic videos about tying some on that wack Eldritch knot shit, there are gems emerging here and there that are genuinely delightful to watch. 

The latest in this vein of videos is another of the ‘The Way I Cook’ videos from Mr Porter. On a side note, Mr Porter are doing the 'Food Issue' of their weekly journal, recommended reading with lots of useful information for the cuisine conscious gentleman. Style in food is no new concept, and I feel an appreciation for luxury in clothing translates readily to a palate for hearty and indulgent food on the table. Mimi Thorisson: author of the blog ‘Manger’ is front and centre in this latest episode, and schools us all on how to make an Apple & Calvados tart. Simply amazing; if you’re thinking about cooking something for that badass lady in your life consider Thorisson’s down to Earth and devilish as fuck approach. Creme Fraiche with apple tart? Church. 

Oh and let’s not pretend this is really about #mahnswear guys, I think today great dessert deserves its time to shine.

So long story short: I asked a college dorm mate if he’d like to help shoot some images for a couple articles I was supposed to write over at t.X (shameless plug initiated) and after a while it sort of morphed into me being a fucking herb and - all but - forcing him to take some images of me as I walked slowly up and down stone roads at my University.
Having said that the homie JJ Hamilton did his best to make me look 30 % smangable so shout out to him for having the patience to pull the Canon 5D strap on me and produce these lovely photos.
Hopefully this won’t be a regular sort of thing but we had so many outtakes left over from the article photos that we took that I couldn’t help but post them here. Now awaiting the inevitable torrent of impending hate mail. 
Bless bless.

So long story short: I asked a college dorm mate if he’d like to help shoot some images for a couple articles I was supposed to write over at t.X (shameless plug initiated) and after a while it sort of morphed into me being a fucking herb and - all but - forcing him to take some images of me as I walked slowly up and down stone roads at my University.
Having said that the homie JJ Hamilton did his best to make me look 30 % smangable so shout out to him for having the patience to pull the Canon 5D strap on me and produce these lovely photos.
Hopefully this won’t be a regular sort of thing but we had so many outtakes left over from the article photos that we took that I couldn’t help but post them here. Now awaiting the inevitable torrent of impending hate mail. 
Bless bless.

OUR PICK OF THE WEEK - Nanamica linen/navy cruiser jacket

Nanananananana-MICAAAAAAHH! Right, now that that Adam West fueled embarrassment is over let’s turn our attention to this jacket shall we? Nanamica makes some really nice outerwear: like steely-Japanese-dudes-with-half-French-half-Vietnamese-mistresses level nice.

Shout out to Tres Bien for being like the third and a half store in the West to stock this shit because let’s be honest: I am not navigating a metric fuck tonne of kanji just to holla at some technical polyester drawers. This jacket on the other hand, give me a dictionary, because I fuck’s with it something fierce.

Made of a 100 % navy linen with a nylon interlining this will keep you covered in those very specific climates that are both humid and windy. It also has snap fastened back and chest pockets: so you can keep your essentials on deck without carrying round that free tote you picked up at Capsule.

I honestly can’t even front about going to Capsule, living in Australia neutralizes all attempts to engage in relevant fronting because you’re not even in the same damn hemisphere as half the stuff you’re pretending to go to.

Still beats being an intern though, amiright?

Available at TRÈS BIEN SHOP
