On the other hand, there are things seen in Brazil that one never sees on styleforum:





etc.

No. The formula for cuffs is half your age plus five divided by 10. You will not be eligible for 2" cuffs for 10 years. Sorry.

And replica football shirts...Thousands of them ...

I had a student of mine point out my silk knot links and ask what they were. She had never seen a French cuff shirt before. I do see seersucker, linen suits, bowties, madras, etc on a fairly regular basis, living in the South.

A certain individual at my work lives by the SF bible when it comes to work clothes, I never seen him without a pocket square after 2 years...I can't compete!

In Chicago, we rarely see anything out of the ordinary in terms of the 9 to 5'ers since 80% of people downtown during the week commute via train and walking. Doesn't make much sense to wear $1k shoes slogging through slush, unless you have a nice pair of galoshers. Out and about on the weekends frequenting nice restaurants and lounges, now that is a different story - but also mostly confined to a handful of places.

c) banana last Vass shoes.
d) suede EGs.

In each case, I introduced myself, and in doing so met:

a) edmorel.
b) chorse123.
c) MAnton.
d) slewfoot.

Even in New York, there are SF things that allow unique identification of SFers.

If you've told any of these stories on SF, I would appreciate links. Too funny.

I have only seen 1 pair of leather soled shoes being worn by someone in my life.

I seldom see leather soled dress shoes with blue jeans in my neck of the woods. Except for some who wear Stacy Adams with their jeans.

Just because I can
