poppin NTB, I'm in much need of your most prestigious advice. I recently made the transition from having very short hair (i used to get a 1 on the reg.) to having a combover. The bitches are loving the hair bruh and its wavy as fuck but i need help finding a real proper comb. Any recommendations ?
Dear NTB, I'm about to order a MTM suit with all imaginable options available. Any advice on what to look out for and what to avoid (fabrics/patterns, contrast saddle stitching, half-canvas vs. full-canvas, etc)?
Answering this question without a price point is about as impossible as sneezing with your eyes open. Hit me on the e-mail tip (NTB@nicetrybro.com) with some specifics, and I’ll sit down and rap to you.
That critique of Goreski is fucking absurd. Committing two entire paragraphs on what you think is tasteless is beyond sanctimonious. You condone every sartorial decision Wooster's made? Or your homie Austin, which last I saw was rocking a ridiculously cropped sportcoat, but they get menswear passes by the gestapo. Italian silk scarves & rubbing elbows with menswear doesn't make you cool. The blog was trill but incessant belittling & bemoaning made you fall off. Yeah, I know you needed that, bro.
That’s funny, sanctimony is a very particular subject that not only touches on one’s self-perceived superiority, but moral superiority. Next time you are looking for a synonym for “smug” or “self-righteous,” I suggest that you open a real thesaurus instead of dimming the lights in your college dorm, ripping a shot of Captain Morgan, spinning around a baseball bat 20 times and relying on your outdated version of Microsoft Word to do your dirty work. Don’t be that guy.
With regards to Nick and Austin, it sounds like you believe it’s my social responsibility to put each and every questionable or controversial menswear photograph that has ever graced the Internet on blast. That’s about as ridiculous as saying that Tommy Ton, by virtue of being a street style photographer, has a social responsibility to perform the miracle of bilocation so that he can shoot both (capsule) New York and Milan Fashion Week in the same day.
And as per myself, I shouldn’t even indulge you, but I haven’t debated the merits of “cool” since the days when I hid my USCF trophies from my high school football teammates, my man. Simply put, I like silk scarves and the company of some of the menswear folk, so I wear silk scarves and hang out with some of the menswear folk.
bro what sunglasses should i fuck wit, i was gonna go moscot but super future also seem legit. Any suggestions?
Suggesting something as diverse and intimate as a pair of shades without having a face to which I can compare the frame is like suggesting what kind of mixers to stock for a party before deciding on the type of alcohol that will be served.
Seeing that I have some ink, and that I’m on the verge of more, it’s pretty clear that I’m a fan. Just like anything else, it all comes down to a crossroad of taste and personal preference—don’t go tattooing your face or pulling a Marquis Daniels and everything should be alright, young man.
i don't like to cary around those paper napkins, but i'd like to have something for personal hygiene. i was consider buying a small pile of silk handkerchiefs, white or cream. do you have any particular brand recommendations for soft, nose friendly silk?
While I understand your desire to pursue sprezzy nasal hygiene, blowing snot rockets into silk is more disrespectful, to me at least, than burning hundred dollar bills during a recession. In fact, I’d argue that shoving a sullied hanky back into your breast pocket is even more appalling than plebishly whipping out a pack of Kleenex.
What's your opinion on hook and/or harness belts? I'm looking to add a little diversity to my belt collection and was thinking about getting one.
You want diversity? Play with colors and textures before you get all city slicker. I’m not mad at harness belts as I find them quite appealing when executed properly, but hooks? Man, what’s next? Magnets?
Saw that outlier bag shit is nuts. I'm sure it would last me a life time but I can't be riding around my motorcycle with a trashbag on my back. Any other recommendations as far as backpacks go? Preferably some waterproof type joint. STAY UP.
I was recently introduced to Outlier, a brooklyn based brand. What you think? Would you place these pants parallel with Epaulet? What about the minimal backback, would u standby GQ's quote, "Sickest bag in the game" - A Bearded Bro.
After speaking with Abe and Roy from Outlier at (capsule) yesterday, and seeing the full collection, I gotta say these are some passionate dudes that make a really, really dope product. That being said, my allegiance to Epaulet trousers is unwavering, so you will not see me jump ship there; however, I would definitely rock a pair of Outliers. No question.
Hey, NTB. I Want your opinion on this one. It's that I live in a European country that isn't doing very good at economics an all that so I can't afford to put away some 400 $ for clothing every month. 80$ tops. Is it even possible to dress properly without spending BIG MONEY? What would you suggest? (Funny I always think "What would NTB say about this" when it comes down to fashion)
For those of y’all who care, NTB will be on hiatus through next week to attend the #menswear orgy that is Pitti Uomo. During that time, I will chronicle my travails—kidding, it’s gonna be dope sauce—through my supplemental Tumblog, Pitti the Fool. And of course, you’ll always be able to come see me on Twitter.
What is your opinion on the brand Del Toro and their slippers/ slippers in general?
While I can say without qualification that I find Del Toro slippers to be beautiful, nothing that effeminate—and at my most generous, androgynous—will ever find a place in my closet (never mind on my feet).
