Another short film, shot by Andrew Yamamoto for The Museum at FIT. It’s for their new exhibit on 1930s fashion, titled “Elegance in an Age of Crisis.” For more, you can check out the second half to this video, which focuses on womenswear, as well as the special shot by putthison on the exhibit’s opening day.
For those, like me, unable to visit the museum, a book accompanying the exhibit is available for pre-order on Amazon.

Friday Challenge entry by StyleForum member Vaux le Vicomte aka LeGrimod
After last weeks Pattern-Frenzy, this week gentlemen, should you choose to accept, you are challenged to put together your most elegant combination of non-patterned items.
Take inspiration from the casual style of Mr Marzotto in his cotton DB, through to the timeless class of proper evening dress.
Any fabrics that resolve to a solid are permitted, be it herringbone or pick n’ pick, birdseye or donegal. Play with your textures, your tone and your colour.
Come & join the fun here.
Take heed of Beau Brummell, Only the elegant shall survive!
"To be noticed without striving to be noticed, this is what elegance is about."
