Kilgour recreates Fred Astaire’s tails - Permanent Style
Fred Astaire's white tie. The inverted pleats and high-trouser waist strike me as incredibly elegant; the way that the pleats flow out over the hips from the waist, reinforcing the suit's hourglass shape.
Okay everyone reading this, it's time to rant about this perfect man, Daniel Radcliffe. 1) He's HARRY POTTER. 2) the Woman in Black is one of my favorite movies of all time. 3) he's ATHEIST! me too! Yay! 4) he's really supportive of gay rights and equality and although he's straight, he actually is flattered when people think that he's gay. [How awesome is that of him!?!?] he's such a role model to me and he is just so perf everyone be like him! K done thx.
