Glenplaid = buzz? Isn't that one of the most common cloth patterns? I know you've been obsessed with it for the last couple months but it's been everywhere since forever.

backlash: the days of the commerce of the 1000+ dollar shoes. G&G, Lobbs, Kitons, Scafora, Dimitri Gomez, Corthay, et al when everyone and everyone was buying them, posting them, and flaunting them and they were all at full price.

I don't remember these days. Skeptical of the black, too.

yeah... full price? On SF? Maybe a pre-buzz phenomenon.

They have gotten a bit ridiculous, especially with the runs of Ralph stuff from Woodbury showing up so much.

Oh, Loake is in the backlash to the backlash.

i think barker black is prebuzz, will get much bigger on here soon
post #71 of 667
I'd have put Barker Black at least at saturation. Unless there's some huge clearance sale.

I don't know if the white shirt thing is true; I just said that because I'd like it to be true. But I'm glad to hear you're wearing them more.

My roped-shoulder sportcoat got a surprising amount of love last time I posted it. I imagine if someone came along with some really nice examples, he could win some converts.

I'm already on the white-shirt bandwagon. My stripes are getting ignored of late.
post #73 of 667
I wore one today with a sportcoat in today's WAYW and figured I might get called out for it. Such things are never done, I'm told.

Glad others are seeing the bright white light of the white shirt. Maybe we really can start a trend.

+1 on white shirts. I have six and laundering every weekend means lately its been plain white 3 or 4 days a week.

As an aside, I see this thread becoming a hall of famer.

i thought it was taboo on here to wear a white shirt with a sportcoat.


All things i'd never think of, and have never thought of, pre style forum.
