I consider them in contemporary poor taste.
Both pairs, but the Boss pair in particular, incorporate many current fashion cliches. But then, not everyone favors classics.
Now that I think of it I believe that Jim Ockert, owner of Khaki's of Carmel was wearing Ring Jacket at the Meet-Up/Trunk Show.He's much bigger than me in both height and breadth, so unless I am wrong about his size, he's wearing MTM or bespoke.Ring Jacket. If that is available, I am surprised that Mr. Sasamoto didn't mention it. I'll look into it when I am in Carmel inAugust.
Not to rain on you parade, but IMHO Ring Jacket has their own size numbers.I attended a Style Forum Trunk Show Meet-Up earier this year sponsored by Style Forumwith the retailer Khakis of Carmel representing Ring Jacket. Ring jacket's repand fitter, one Mr Sasamoto was there. I wear 44 R in Isaia, Belvest, SartoriaPartenopea, Battistoni, Borrelii, and H, Freeman. The Ring Jacket 44 R that Itried on at the Trunk Show/ Meet-Up did not close.l They had no samplesin...
I hadn't been to the SoHo shop yet either. As I said, he used to have a selection of beautiful suits and sport coats, one of which I almost purchasedback in' 08. It was a purplish heather tweed, but had a ticket pocket, which I don't like. At the time Jay himself was in the shop and we had goodconversation about New York and the high schools we attended. This time I learned that they plan a store in LA in the next six months. So I guessweird sells.
This comment has probably been made before. I was in Italy for two weeks in Sept. 2014- Naples, Rome, Milan, and Venice and saw No One dressed this way. I've been to Italy more than a few times over the past 40 years. Overall, men are very well-dressed and seem to follow (like sheep) the latest fashion- e.g. side vents, no vents, etc unlike the US and Britain where several style- families co-exist among the well-dressed: Savile, Row, Ivy, Italian, etc.. For Italy, on the...
Presidents tend to dress like members of the Chamber of Commerce, or Rotary of a third tier Mid-Western City. Even candidate Romney, the recipient of two Harvard Degrees, and the son of a Fortune 500 CEO and governor of Michigan, dressed in a safe, boring "corporate bland" style, even though he was based in Boston, a center of at least ,Ivy style. The late Senator Daniel Patrick Moinyhan of New York. A man who should have been President, IMHO, typified an Ivy sprezz,...
Visited my hometown 6/8- 6/21. No longer used to the climate. I much preferred my stay during 1/14.The frigid temperatures and two snow storms reduced the crowds and imparted a special beauty toplaces like Central Park. The weather in no way inconvenienced me, although several get-togethershad to be cancelled with friends and family who were snow bound in Connecticut and Long Island.Hotel rates were less than half those of last week.
