You may be able to pick up some of Ford's work at Gucci on eBay or Bluefly which replicates the look you want...
Awesome thread. For me: * Suits - Borrelli * Sport coats - Borrelli * Trousers - Incotex * Dress shirts - Finamore * Wool/merino sweaters - Saba (Aussie brand, REALLY good fit) * Dress shoes - Santoni (though staring down the barrel of some C&Js) * Ties - Hardest one here, I tend to mix it up a lot. My faves are from Leonard, but I wouldn't want to wear twill every day for the rest of my life. So a little Italian company called D. Tortiola (spelling may be wrong...
Thinking of copping a pair of Westbournes in black, as my new court shoes. (Followed by some dark brown Tavistocks, if I can get them...but that's another story). To those august personages who own multiple C&Js: is there a significance difference in the leather (as opposed to the construction) in Hand- and Benchgrade? And if so, am I right in thinking this difference is minimised in relation to black shoes?
I know someone who has a few Kilgour Shanghai-suits. I was not tremendously impressed, I took them for Paul Smith London at first blush - machine-made buttonholes (keyhole on the lapel, no less!) were the biggest thing that astounded me.
If ever I get negative remarks, I'll just say that I get cold in the airconditioning and hence wear suit and tie. It's completely true, and is the reason I seldom take my coat off in the office...
Whether going from 3 to 5-6 meals makes a positive difference or not, there is no suggestion that it makes a negative difference. Ergo, it's worth a try, to err on the side of caution. My view on it, however, as well as anything else you do is, do it in a manner that you're confident you can stick with. I'd rather do a 90 min workout than my 45 minute workout. However, I know that if I tried to do that everyday, it would get difficult and start to piss me off. So I have...

Yes, in fact I suspect it did. Just when I thought I was losing the plot...I remember that there was a shot of one of those coats inside somewhere (Al Bazar?), with a comment on how much it cost. So even if I got the other remark from M. Fan, they were still definitely in the thread...
Right you are River, I must have conflated that remark in my mind with pictures of them elsewhere... Still not sure where that "elsewhere" is! Maybe I'm imagining this all...
Nope. It was quite specifically styled as an overview of current style in Naples - not centred on any one brand or maker. I've been through all the posts here for the last several weeks and can't find it, so I suspect it's an external source.
