Pcock & CBD? Now that's a challenge I'd like to see happen.

No. Cashmere is the undercoat and good cashmere comes from breed/region-specific animals. The longest and finest fibers of the coat in most instances. Many "cashmere" products are spun with top coat, or worse synthetic materials, to imitate the strength or hand of true luxury-caliber cashmere. So to call cashmere "pure" only means that it hasn't been spun with other fibers. In this case 5% of the garment is made of 100% cashmere fibers.

But if pure cashmere is only 5% of the blend, how can it be pure?

As stated above, the "pure" only refers to the cashmere used in the jacket and not the jacket as a whole.

NORE, I think a more realistic challenge would be to post in the suggested threads, but change only one item when going from thread to thread. Start at P'cock, then maybe WAYWRN, Good Taste, and finally CBD. I can't see how one fit could find approval in both P'cock and CBD otherwise.

Wow, people you really know sarcasm.

I wonder if cashmere goats' deliciousness is commensurate with their softness... If so, I would like to eat one.

Did you mean to say "people like you"?



Also, I wasn't following the conversation at all, just saw your post and a bunch of half-ass explanations. So... you're welcome.

Well, if the softness spectrum parallels a deliciousness spectrum, goats cooked in China would taste better than goats cooked in Italy, which would taste better than goats cooked in Scotland.

Your fit would be significantly better if you enhanced the drape of your pants. I **think** you are slightly bowlegged, but do not account for this, or account for it appropriately in your trousers. Those creases in the inner part of the trousers are evident on almost every pair of pants you post.

Also, it would work better if you chose what direction you want to go with the taper/length of your pants. Sharp tapered pants can afford to be a tad shorter (ie the #menswear thing) ... but you have highwater pants without enough tapering at the leg opening, which compounds your drape issues.

No comments on the color/pattern combo ... i think your pants alone deserve a ton of work to start off. I didnt read the entire thread so apologize if beating a dead horse. It just bugged me so much i figured i'd respond with my 0.02.

** - stand corrected if this is not the case.

Nope, my submission:

I think that finding the intersection of peacock and good taste is already tough enough - but not impossible : a couple of TTO and Albert Hal outfits come to mind.

Peacockish and CBD are by definition pretty much mutually exclusive
