  1. Show us your Uniqlo, Levi's, APC, Naked & Famous, or even Armoury denim boys. Interesting find - an article about locally made using Japanese Kaihara Mill denim http://www.rawrdenim.com/2012/08/cheese-denim-malaysian-raw-jeans/

    ^ Champagne at the JLC boutique, manhandling a 2 million dollar watch: Just a regular weekday for a Master Tailor. —————————————— Look at the unfused collar and cuffs on that striped shirt. Combined with the handrolled lightly lined Vanda tie. Sprez.

    Better a suit which fits than a suit with the fun features but with suboptimal fit.

    First fitting at the JT atelier for a new sportcoat in mini houndstooth pattern (although looks solid in the photo). Collar to be better fitted around the neck, body taken in slightly, and other magical tweaks to optimise fit. The feel of the Dugdale New Fine Worsted (NFW) cloth is slightly less rustic than I recall. Maybe I'm too used to touching the kerbau cloth. Close up pic of the cloth - previously shared on the cloth thread.

    Mark Cho , international man of menswear shares his “to buy” list (which includes pieces from the Armoury that he presumably already owns). Among them is a two tone Rolex. https://gearpatrol.com/2019/03/19/mark-cho-in-my-cart/ “I have recently been very interested in two-tone watches and stumbled on this particular reference. It looks strange on the website, but I was curious enough to check it out in real life. It is outstanding and absolutely on my shortlist. Compared with the photograph online, the Everose parts are subtler and less pink, and the grey dial is much richer in color. I highly suggest any watch nut check it out.”

    I was struck by how normal and charismatic Ming came across. I hold this notion that geniuses are not always as developed in the interpersonal / social space, clearly I am wrong. Although I loved the undertone of contempt he had for the person he shared the stage with (just my opinion). They occupy polar opposite spaces - one super niche, reliant on designing unique products which have not previously existed. The other a mass market juggernaught which entire company was setup based on market research into consumer trends/habits. I.e. one has to create demand, the other creates to cater for changing demand. Overall, I was hoping to hear more about fantastical next gen retail analytics or consumer experience tech, innovation, and insight. A hint of the next 5-10 years of retail and consumer markets space. By far the most impressive (and concerning) one was the story shared by the Facebook ad marketing lady where they track peoples offline spend patterns back tp online ad impressions. The insight which impressed me the least was by a retail consulting firm which shared these gems: Malaysian consumers prefer mall shopping as the weather is hot, and that malls are also used as social gathering spaces.

    Charlie Rose interviews Christoph Waltz in 2010, for his role in Inglorious Basterds. For a contemporary television interview, both were surprisingly well dressed.

    What are you wearing today?

    In the ‘glamourous’ surrounds of my office bathroom, evidently channelling Tom Cruise in risky business. I’ve owned this pair of Levis for about 15 years. This was during the heyday of the baggier fit jean. These were 2 inches in the waist too big for me at the time (but obvs they were worn slung low on the hips). Having grown sideways slightly compared to those days, I think they look relatively slim / straight now. The astonishing part is that the wash looks pretty much the same as the day I bought them. Although I cant seem to find pictures of me in them new. The smartphone is really a game changer when it comes to documenting our lives.

    Wing Wah also had one when I checked a few days ago. But price probably less attractive then the Kuantan seller, Im guessing.

    The design of the speedy is undeniable. But at 42mm its definitely a sizeable watch! The speedy “reduced” is more wearable for me, but the dial design isnt quite as clean as the moonwatch.

    Lips could do with some balm. Shea butter is good as it imparts a matte, rather than glossy finish that some lip balms do. Overall, I would say he still looks well groomed to my eye, albeit not polished to the nines. I suppose its a good thing as one should try to project an air of sprez in all things and not appear overly fastidious. Although I am not sure how representative the model is of the target or typical customer age group of Jeremy Tok tailors? A loosely related story on the topic of grooming. Oftentimes innocent and well intentioned grooming easily goes overboard. A friend of mine once had his brows professionally groomed by his barber when he had a haircut before a wedding dinner in the spirit of "cleaning up" for the event. During the night it was painfully evident to the whole table that he did indeed had his eyebrows groomed, and not in a good way.
