Just where the Mr. Ken Polleck, Esquire, and other true believers are is not clear anymore--we can only assume they are out there caring on the one true faith in world of be-darted, be-pleated, Italian shoes wearing bunch of philistines who will soon be rotting in genhenna.

Thank you, someone who knows what it's all about.

PS, can I quote that last bit, the bit about the philistines rotting.

Why not go to Andover, I've only ordered from the catalogue. Is there something I should know?

I had an experience there that turned me off the shop and the owner.

Can they match them to your denim

Good for you - it is tradly to hold grudges.

Yes, but the wiskering is really fake-looking.

Yes, but nothing some sandpapering after sitting in the tub with the squares won't fix

I got a 3-pack of the white (Irish) linen on sale. Very good quality, but they're too friggin' big for my taste, and jackets - almost 18" sq.! Anyone want them? I think I paid $27 or so. Quite nice & very tradly...

Not quite. I respect the trad style. But when they, like Christians, want to force their beliefs on me, it's on.

I don't think your view is representative of the general view on trads on this forum.

Pardon me, but I've never noticed any of this hostility.

When have the Trads ever evangelized anyone? They're all very busy arguing about whether Trad is a lifestyle or just clothing and whether darts are the "secret handshake." They seem an insular bunch.

I've been evangelized one or two times by them. Not here, but in real life. I basically told them to fuck off in the nicest way possible.

There's a reason why trads don't post around here...or at least why they don't post about things that pertain strictly to trads. I'd say that most people swing closer to the indifference side of things, but hostility is not out of the question.

Besides, styleforum is not very trad and a true blue-blooded trad would not be caught dead here.
