This time of yr we usually run our Everlasting Fashion Awards, the place readers vote for his or her favorite model or store in a handful of classes. I then profile the winners over the next month.
This yr I believed we’d do issues a bit otherwise. Slightly than manufacturers, I’d prefer to know what your favorite items of clothes are – as a way to advocate particular issues to readers, with particular causes that assist them resolve for themselves.
I feel this can helpful, because it offers explicit suggestions somewhat than simply outlets typically – virtually like an expanded ‘High 10’ peice. It additionally means we keep away from repeating earlier awards.
So, these are the classes. Please allow us to all know what single piece of clothes you’ll record in every one, and why:
- Your favorite merchandise of clothes to procure in 2021
- Your favorite merchandise of (ready-made) clothes ever
- Your favorite bespoke (customized, MTM) ever
- Your favorite piece of ‘luxurious’ clothes, and why it feels luxurious to you. (Not worth, however match, rarity, make, supplies.)
I’m notably to listen to what folks put for quantity 4. We speak so much about luxurious clothes, however it will probably imply fairly various things to completely different folks. To 1 particular person it could be a bespoke slot in jacket, to a different the sensation of 12-ply cashmere, and to a different the information that nobody else owns the identical piece of clothes (as with classic clothes).
I do hope you discover the train fascinating. I do know different readers will discover the suggestions precious.
I will do a follow-up piece in every week or two, summarising a number of the nominations and likewise giving my solutions.
