Does a link cuff look better or worse? Is a link cuff less formal than the standard French style? Is she trying to make me look less fabulous?? It's more formal. I think it's a cool look. Do you like it, though? Why don't you try it for a while and see if you like...

All of my suits and pants are on hangers from hangerproject. I haven't tried any of their shirt hangers, though. The shoulders are definitely broad enough, and it's deep (front to back), too, so it fits the shoulders nicely. From the center to the tips, there's a curve, which I guess is supposed to simulate the concavity of the collar bone vs. the convexity of the back shoulder blades. The jacket hangers are designed for a standard shoulder slope, though; I have pretty...

Maybe I'm just strange, one dress shoe per day for me! I think you are kind of strange. I think most people wear two.

I think it depends if it was a tuxedo that you owned and wore before your first wedding, or if it was bought especially for the first wedding. I think the first is okay, but the second isn't.

For the most part, personal style should be developed personally, no? I feel bored, but not for the same reason. For me, it's that I've learned all I can for now and I'm just limited by money,...
J, How heavy are your Italian umbrellas compared to the Brigg ones you carry? Just curious; I just received one of your Italian brollies in black.
