I'm having such a bad day today that your picture frames are really bothering me now.

Since the BlazerSuit™ is all about versatility and innovation, the next generation of BlazerSuits™ could have specially-developed buttons, with faceplates that snap on and off. The could be donut-shaped, to make the buttonhole thread visible, or better, they could have fake buttonhole stitching at the center. The basic button could be a versatile smoky brown. They look great with khaki pants, for an American look. Or, with the quick snap-on patented BlazerSuit™ blue button cover, you can change to blue buttons, in a snap, for an Italian look that fetches admiring glances on the continent. BlazerSuits™ in lighter fabrics might come with a mother-of-pearl button cover, for that leisured, summery look. And no BlazerSuit™ could be complete without the brass snap-on button cover, for that traditional look that seals the deal. This sort of gimmick could take the BlazerSuit™ to the next level. I can hear the ad copy on late-night TV now.

Why? Do you think that devoting a whole, gigantic wall within a large (okay: palacial) office suite to framed and mounted photographs of exotic trips is a manifestly undemocratic snub to a world of cubicles, bank bailouts, and TGI Fridays?

It could be worse, you know.



I'm just a minor tyrant...so small as to be barely visible. Itsy bitsy. Like a speck, or mote.

Now there's a thought. I have one coming from Solito et al.

How about a suit that can be worn night and day, awake and asleep, like T4phage's Panicos?

Suit24â„¢?

I secretly have a Zegna that I BlazerSuited long ago. Horn buttons with dark edges and very light, almost white centers. I like it. I posted a pic once, way back, but the image was too shoddy to see the details.

I was hoping for neon lights and posters from liquor manufacturers instead. How did you convince crate & barrel to give you different stock photos for each frame though?

That bin holds recent publications that my staff and I have produced...saves me the time of hunting for them when I give visitors the boot.
