As someone pointed out earlier, there's the risk of an exclusion/limitation clause in the contract. I know the law in England/Australia is that such a clause won't operate unless specifically brought to your attention, for this very reason. Can't speak for the U.S. law however. The other thing is, how important is their reputation to them, and are there avenues for you to "go public" (other than on SF) if you're not given satisfaction? I hate to play hardball, but in...
Looks like a scan from some Japanese magazine with an unfortunately homoerotic name (Fineboys, Men's Non-No, etc...)
I enjoy being a well-dressed, ostensibly successful citizen, who is nonetheless a political leftist. This goes nicely with my own philosophy that those who are doing well can really afford to look after the rest of the community (even though I'm young and not particularly affluent). I have a real desire to attend an anti-nuclear protest or something like that with a group of my fellow young professionals, all neatly suited and well behaved amongst the hippies...
I'm frankly sick of hearing the word "artisan". Just like "bespoke" and indeed "luxury", it's overused advertising speak, redeployed by status-seeking wankers to try to justify the exorbitant prices they pay for logo-ed crap. To be honest, the belief that the quality of stitching etc is a national trait unique to countries like Italy is naive at best, and verging on racist at worst. I know that there's tradition, culture, etc...but these only get you so far. I'll...
I don't mind the boldness per se, but the fabric colour and check colour don't go real well together. The other thought I had was, he shouldn't have cuffed the pants, or should have cuffed them in such a way that the pattern matched rather than creating one row of smaller squares at the bottom...

I just bought myself this: Despite the understandable antipathy to a lot of branded stuff around these parts, I didn't buy it for that reason, I bought it because it's really beautiful. The colours are a little more subtle than the picture suggests, the dial is "champagne" coloured with a nice lustre to it, unlike a lot of stuff around the place which just appears to be a piece of white cardboard with black numbers printed on it. EA actually has a few nice...
If the tie is meant to be a phallic symbol, what in God's name do these say about the wearer?
I tried on an MTM Zegna the other day--it was an order never picked up, the shop thought it might fit me. It didn't quite, but I was really impressed with the cuffs and collar, and the fabric was excruciatingly nice, similar to Borrelli but better, if you like that sort of thing...
We don't make fun of SoCal cos he's gay. We make fun of him because it's entertaining, it just so happens that his sexuality is the stick we beat him with...(I searched for a different expression there, and it just wasn't coming) Anyway, preferences of the clothing kind. I never wear captoe shoes, plain toe just looks cleaner. I like plain swallowtail designs whether brogued into the leather or as a separate piece, but find brogued wingtips a bit much generally. I...
