You guys should read this thread. http://forums.filmnoirbuff.com/viewtopic.php?id=778 The Duke of Windsor probably had Scholte invent this silhouette to be unique, very much the way the English like to have a shirt pattern no one else has. The English thought it was a quirky, vulgar style. Because the Americans liked his (Edward VIII's) style it became popular enough to open Anderson and Sheppard. It never caught on in the UK because the English cannot stand the...

That means it has to be word for a while to see releases in the chest and shoulder area. It really is only after years of wearing that the you notice the garment gets better. Of course one's weight and shape may have shifted. The jacket, being fitted, may not be...

Imagine him in an A&S suit with all it's negligently draping folds? I think also that because...

I have seen some small men need to use a windsor know to account fro the extra fabric length in their ties.

Obviously there is a line between style and fashion, where fashion comes and goes but something that is stylish is always stylish. The very mention of the word 'dated' implied we are talking about fashion though, since something that is timelessly stylish will never be 'dated', and the simple fact is that double-breasted suits and jackets are very much having a resurgence at...
