I┬┤m too puzzled about the fans.Ages ago women wore them,but not men. If the idea is to ┬┤hide┬┤yourself for some reason,this man should have chosen a huge fan.Why the fan-he looks just an ordinary,somewhat overweight guy?
I am a huge fan of the fan and of the tie bar (or is it a built in tab closure, I can’t tell from the photo). Recently, I made a shirt like this for myself. Funny, though, I think of the tie bar as being a more old school British thing, than an old school italian one. Where is this man from? This is not Lagerfeld AT ALL (save the tall collar).
I use Fans all the time My own personal HRT This is the first time I’ve seen a man on the street do the same We all know Karl does it with panache But this is an exceptional moment Rotund yet charming A hint of something else Flamboyant facial Hair Very confident poise This guy looks Sexy WITH a Fan!
That, is real style. He is an old guy with white beard and a bit over his goalweight, but still, I would stop to look at him, if he past me down the street. That is the apophthegm “Fashion fades, style is eternetal”, personalized.
does the ad have to flash? will take getting used to. Loved the clean look of your site. cant the ad be smaller? will there be more? GASP! I guess only the old loggers in will feel this way. if it were my first time, wouldnt even pay attention to the ad.. ignorance is bliss. didnt know where else to post this.
Gentlemen’s fans are the height of practical elegance, in my view, and as Kate said we’ve had them forever in Spain. In precious wood and plain cloth, and small enough for a gentleman to carry in the top pocket of his summer jacket. They can still be bought in good fan stores like de Diego in Madrid. Large and decorated fans have always been a symbol of female authority; for men they are as uncouth as air conditioning, although at least they can be avoided.
