IMHO, Argyle looks best when one of the colors is the same as the pant, such as this.
Reminds me of the crazy, expressive tux's that very conservative guys would have made to wear to country club parties in the late 60's around NY. The FU look was to boldly show that they didn't have to follow the rules.
I wouldn't call the NYT piece "making fun" of SF, but it sure offers sobering facts about the realities of city life.
Now that you mention it, the newer, mainline leather does look good but a bit generic. It is missing something. Perhaps something in the weight and texture or the tanning process found in the older skins?I took a look at the "new" collections. Their combination of newer fabrics with certain older characteristics come across like a so-so Jack Spade bag. Looks like they need an all new design team stat!
Not surprised to hear that the SF Ghurka store is closing. That is very expensive real estate and the store was nicely done, but it didn't interest me enough to return after my initial visits a couple of years ago. I was impressed when John Reuter bought the company and salvaged it from the investment group that purchased it around 2004 and essentially destroyed it in their attempt to make it into a women's fashion handbag brand as well as moving all production to China....
See you this afternoon.
Tomorrow I will wear purple socks.
Those split toe derbies are especially nice.
I saw the sweats. Lots of authentic period details. The inside fleece is especially soft and fuzzy. The sweat pants really knocked me out with their tie ankles and waistband. Its no joke when they say the Real McCoys make it better than the real McCoy.
I would use Carlos at Oxxford. He did the same alterations on several of my jackets. One of the SA's from Wilkes Bashfird took his Kiton and Brioni suits there to be recut after he lost 30 lbs. I was so impressed by the work that I began using Carlos. He isn't cheap and don't expect rush service. But if you are specific about what you want, you should get positive results. He did an excellent job shortening length and shortening sleeve from shoulder.
