I do love the way Style Forum members show off their clothes but wish to retain their privacy by putting themselves in non-descriptive surroundings like a patch of green grass and then putting a big black circle around their head. For those of you that read Style Forum you will know that it is populated by sartorial snobs the world over and many of them have a lack of tolerance for anybody that's either outside the realm of what they think is de rigeur for a man or else they mock those that haven't yet learned what the rules of engagement are. Perhaps this is the reason that so many of them put a black circle around their faces and run their profiles under pseudonyms rather than face the great shame of a sartorial forum bukake from the other members.....
This week I stepped outside the box twice. I was making suits for the window of our Studio but in fairness I always cut them for my frame because in essence I am my own best advertising despite the fact that I am possibly 30 kilos over weight according to some diagrams and charts that my doctor points to each time I go for a check up.
I post below my outfits for your consideration and in the vein of Style Forum I have blacked out my head... less about privacy concerns and more about the double chin.
