CBD WAYWRN: An Experiment - Page 468

post #7006 of 7015
I suspect the logic behind CBD, for some, is that anything extraneous to function and unnecessary for an item to look appropriate violates CBD.

I would say that, if one were to order a suit with CBD in mind, one would not get a ticket pocket. However, a ticket pocket is not the kiss of death for CBD. It's just that its absense is more CBD than its presense.

I stopped getting them a long time ago on any thing but tweed, and even then, it's been a while. I still wear the ones I have, though.

That's what I meant.  On a continuum, it is less CBD to have a ticket pocket.  However, it is not a binary factor like for example a contrasting buttonhole thread or even a knit tie.  

 

I don't have any ticket pocket on my suits either but I think that's because they're just at odds with the cuts and style that I prefer.

Been a long time since I posted here. Flame away on the earrings, Manton. smile.gif

Oh, and BTW, I took your advice about collar height on my latest shirt (not this one). Much better. Future orders will keep this revision.

I don't like those kind of stripes on suits.
post #7011 of 7015

You prefer them on underpants?

post #7012 of 7015
On nothing?
post #7013 of 7015

Oh well why didn't you say so. I agree

I knew this about you. I think Manton doesn't like them, either. I am generally not a fan, but this one struck my fancy.

As I recall, there was something similar in one of the LL flannels in a shade of brown. Maybe it had one stripe fewer. Yes, on second thought, I think this pattern could be improved by removing the pinstripe and leaving the double stripe. It's a vintage look, but not a bad one.
