Regarding Steed, I recall Despos has mentioned that Steed rotates the arm seam quite forward.You can see it on Andy57's suit here.You can also see it on my Steed coat here.This detail seems quite distinctive. The arm seam is not typically so forward that it is clearly visible from the front. I don't know if there is a technical reason or part of the house style. Just a tit bit to help identify Steed suits.
Sprout2's numerous failed attempts at humor were contributing lots of noise to otherwise great threads. Its one thing if they were remotely amusing but the jokes were so bad. It's about time he was pulled off stage.
Antonio, do you know washing recommendations for this cardigan? I got it at the Eidos samples sale but it has no labels of any sort. No country of origin label, not even an Eidos label. I assume it is cotton and should be hand washed only but wanted to confirm. Thanks.
You should visit Vienna during ball season because you get to wear white tie quite often. I was there for two weeks this year and wore tails 3 times. There are student tickets available if you are young enough.
Outside of balls, I've been wearing top hat and tails to Gatsby parties.
If you are looking for a day trip from Cannes, the Voiles des St. Tropez overlaps with your Cannes dates. It is a regatta for traditional sail ships and is quite an incredible sight if you like that sort of thing. I recall there is a ferry from Cannes that takes you directly to St. Tropez.
There is a Paris restaurant thread if you are looking for restaurant...
I would phrase the idea another way. IMO, heavier cloth hangs better than lighter cloth, so I try to wear the heaviest tolerable for the weather. It was low 70s yesterday and I broke out my 16 oz Lesser DB.
