also I still can’t believe that person who said “Aristocracy thinks that Kirin Jindosh is one of them because he looks like them.” I mean have you even seen this guy?

What do these looks have in common except for high white collar? The nobles wear long-ish coats with big lapels and pantaloons to show off their ankles, everything is made of black or dark blue expensive cloth. Jindosh wears a scruffy brown leather jacket and the cheapest straight pants. We only ever see brown colors and leather jackets on low class people. And no noble would be caught dead in these worn-out laced shoes. Just because Jindosh put a gift-wrapping ribbon around his neck and manages to work this whole mess into a cohesive Look™ doesn’t mean that he would be read as aristocratic by any noble in their right mind. 

Like, the point of it is that Jindosh lowkey despises nobles, because he believes that intellect and capability should determine people’s worth and not the place of birth, but he is forced to interact with them bc he needs their money. So he passively-aggressively threatens that his robots will kill them if they are not here in precise time and then makes them wait for several HOURS for no real reason, knowing perfectly well that they’re here. And then he shows up, obnoxiously looking like a commoner mechanic and vapes out of his fucking thumb into their faces.

Best Dressed Men At The 2015 Golden Globes

The Best Best Dressed

Eddie Redmayne. He thought outside of the box with his ensemble. Don’t see too much velvet at these events. It was quite refreshing and not over the top.

Big Lapels

Jamie Dornan

Chris Pratt

Both of these gentlemen took to big lapels for the big night. And they looked great. Remember, big lapels call for an equally big bow tie. 

Shawl Lapels

Jake Gyllenhaal

John Legend

Matt Bomer

These three men kept it classy with shawl lapels, which are perfect for formal events. Additionally, Matt really stands…in a good way. In a sea of black, Matt opted for midnight blue, which definitely garners attention.

Her: Spray-tan, push-up bra, hair extensions, too much makeup, facebook, high heels, iphone, mini-skirt, crop top

Me: Hair not too long, black very tight tights, the old jelly mould on the crutch underneath in the shape of a spider, waisty jacket without lapels, very big built up shoulders, off-white cravat, flip horrorshow boots for kicking, dressed in the heighth of fashion

Lace Up

When we saw sneakers on the Chanel runway we heaved a huge sigh of relief and gladly packed away the heels that gave us blisters and instead turned to our trusty old sneakers to take us places. Now a season or two later we can’t let go of these unbelievably comfortable trend so today I am suggesting amazing ways to wear different sneakers for different occasions. They’re just like heels, only more comfortable - I feel like that should be my new motto.

Nobody puts Lewis in a corner

A rather… long overdue headcanon/prompt idea I got that I really wanted to work out and iron down. What if… Lewis was gender fluid? Big sweetheart like him, protecting his sisters, loving his family as he does, he’s the responsible big brother! I doubt he’d have much time to explore this kind of inner thinking until he’s living a freer life with his friends in their shared apartment. 

So it gave birth to this..! I hope you enjoy~

Quick drawings for my coworkers and friends on facebook

1) mashing up what my coworker Matt calls my weird visual go-tos. My favorites seem to be skinny dudes, sharp or big noses, smirks, big/messy/curly hair, lapels, and weird bow ties. 

So here is one of the many possible results of that combination. 

His name is Stephven. Both the ph and the v, thanks. His favorite thing to do is tell you how much of a piece of poop you are

2)Spongebob as Thor??? (one of the engineers requested this one)

3)A Christmas Tree on Vacation (QA manager…also the tree is dead)

4)Velociraptor Clown (UI Artist)

5)Mr. Peabody and Sherman, more like the cartoon than the movie

6)A horseshoe crab and a watermelon (???? freakin engineers) 

7) A strawberry the size of a cantaloupe riding an antelope (QA and bestie) 

8) Normal lookin dude with some batwings (Customer Service)

I like how I get a buncha fandom requests when I take doodle requests on tumblr, but when I ask my coworkers, the majority feels like they just tossed two random words together haha

The Proportions of Elegance: Collars & Lapels

Proportions of elegance: Collars & Lapels
The jacket lapel has an unsung charm. Tha fashion system, with some infrequent exception, wants it slim, narrow, almost invisible. The tailoring, fortunately, makes wide, masculine, beautiful lapels, that are suitable for the chest and the personality of the customer. A tailor once said: “The more the lapel is wide, the more the jacket will look slim”, meaning the optical effect of a big lapel covering the front of the jacket.  Normally, the width should be proportioned to the stature of the person, so ten, eleven or twelve centimeters are quite common in tailors’ shops; on the other hand, ready to wear jackets feature lapels eight, seven and sometimes even six centimeters wide. The peak lapel, typical of the double-breasted jacket, is more formal, but can also give a stylish flair to a serious single-breasted business suit. Apart from being notched, shawl or peak, the sartorial lapel is fascinating also because it is designed by hand on the papermodel. The result is a different “belly” and tip for every jacket. Some tailors make it more heavy, putting canvas, horse hair and camel hair inside, according to the tailoring tradition in Milan; some others, as the Neapolitans, make it lighter, with just a layer of a 150 gr canvas; finally, some others don’t even use canvas for their lapels, preferring the cotton. A tip: if you want to know whether a lapel is sartorial or not, look underneath it. You will find a cloud of stitches blocking the fabric on the canvas. Pure poetry! Moreover, another distinctive feature of the jacket is the collar. Neapolitan tailors make it very high, whereas nordic schools are more penchant to make it low. It is a very delicate area of the jacket: it is likely that an expert will look at it in order to see if the jacket fits well or not. In the first article we talked about rules of elegance. Well, a unanimously approved rule is that the collar of the jacket should always follow the shirt collar, when the jacket is buttoned, despite the movements. These and other details make the difference between a “just expensive” jacket and a “well done” one.


Le proporzioni dell’eleganza: Baveri e Colli Il bavero della giacca ha un fascino incompreso. La moda, con qualche rara eccezione, lo vuole piccolo, stretto, quasi infinitesimale. La sartoria, per fortuna, lo fa largo, bello, adeguato al torace e alla personalità di chi lo indossa. Una volta un sarto disse: “Più il bavero è largo, più la giacca sembrerà stretta in vita”. Si riferiva all’effetto ottico per cui un bavero grande copre di più il davanti della giacca, facendolo sembrare più piccolo. Di norma, la sua larghezza dovrebbe essere proporzionata alla statura della persona. Dieci, undici o dodici sono i centimetri preferiti in sartoria, contro gli otto, i sette e a volte anche sei centimentri delle giacche di confezione. Il bavero “a lancia”, tipico del doppiopetto, è più formale, ma può anche dare un tocco di stile ad un semplice abito mono petto. Tradizionale, “a lancia” o “a scialle” che sia, la magia del revers sartoriale sta nel suo disegno a mano sul cartamodello. Il risultato è una “pancia” o una punta ogni volta diverse. C’è chi lo fa più pesante, mettendo all’interno tela, crine di cavallo e pelo cammello, come da tradizione nella sartoria milanese; c’è chi lo fa leggero, come a Napoli, inserendo solo uno strato di tela da 150 grammi; c’è chi, infine, non mette nemeno la tela all’interno, preferendo il cotone. Un consiglio: per avere conferma che un bavero è sartoriale, bisogna guardare al di sotto. Si troverà una nuvola di punti con la funzione di fermare il tessuto sulla tela. Pura poesia! Tratto distintivo della giacca, inoltre, è il collo. La sartoria napoletana lo preferisce alto, mentre le scuole sartoriali nordiche sono più inclini a farlo basso. E’ una zona particolarmente delicata della giacca, perché è lì che l’occhio esperto cade per vedere se il capo ha una buona vestibilità. Nel primo articolo abbiamo parlato di regole non scritte dell’eleganza. Bene, una regola unanimemente approvata in questo campo è sicuramente quella per cui il collo della giacca non deve “scollare”: la giacca, quando è abbottonata, deve stare attaccata al colletto della camicia, specialmente sul dietro, nonostante i movimenti. Questi ed altri dettagli fanno la differenza tra un capo solo “costoso” e un capo “fatto bene”.
