    Your Favourite Style & Fashion Quotes

    I thought it might be nice to have a thread where we share inspirational quotes about fashion and style.

    One of my favourites is:

    'Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future' - Coco Chanel

    A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care, and then forgotten all about them,~Hardy Amies.

    My sources tell me the second quote is actually an attack on nudists, not about fashion.


    "From all of us here, I wish you a happy painting, and God Bless my friend.

    Oh and be sure you look sharp in front of the mirror you zit-faced moron." - Bob Ross.
    Sometimes I write my signature really fast when I have to sign for a parcel, because I feel like the delivery man is in a hurry to deliver the next one and I am keeping him waiting. But when I get to write my signature on paper, I take my time with it so the person will think "Wow that is a really great signature".

    It's not so much about fashion or style directly but a rather terse attack on the state of things here. I completely agree with the man. I absolutely abhor A&F, Jack Wills and the like.


    We have such a heritage in this country. People from other countries, all the R’n'B stars, they come to Savile Row and they’re in immaculate three-piece suits. Then you see British guys and they just can’t seem to dress. We have all these fashion agendas, punk and Vivienne Westwood and everything, but the queue seems to be at Abercrombie & Fitch down the road. That is just heartbreaking to me. Why does everyone want a polo shirt and three-quarter-length combat shorts?
