Thank you, gentlemen. Mr. Butch, your sense of drollery is most impressive as well. Citan, my life is ordinary, for the island on which it is lived - it's just that there is always something going on here. FYI, for PatrickBooth - the new shows at the Whitney are worth seeing, particularly the Richard Artswchager - very fun and very tactile. I was at the members' preview Wednesday - a classic Whitney crowd (uptown, Tribeca, Williamsburg, all cheek to jowl), and a minor celebrity sighting - Jane Seymour - looked great for a woman in her early 60's without cosmetic surgery.

Among the things my mom would (and still does) tell me in the spirit of guilt-tripping: "When I was growing up in Korea, when a parent died, it was customary for a dutiful grieving child to build a hut next to the grave and live there for [some ungodly amount of time]."

I don't get it.

I realize the tie is silk but in that pallette, it might as well be madras. Just doesn't go with a dark 3-piece pinstripe and a brown square.

I feel like that's a theme with a lot of what you post. Cotton trousers rolled up with a wool tartan vest. I understand the peacock thing (even if I don't like it) but I think you run into trouble when you mix seasons like that.

Thank you, sir. The swelled edges certainly add a casual tone to the jacket. In all honesty it was purchased to be worn with jeans/chinos. However, as I said in the taste thread, I had a meeting in the country yesterday, so I felt a casual edge was necessary. Turns out I was right as my prospective clients were all in polo shirts and beat up boots.

 

You know you post on SF when swelled edges on a jacket are enough of an informal touch to feel like you've pitched your dress code to about the right level when amongst beat-up boots. ;)

 

Mind you, I too suffer from the same cognitive affliction... :D

As it's not someone you were personally close to, I feel no qualms about saying that I find funerals/death rites quite an interesting facet of human society. Mortality is such a traumatic concept, it's fascinating how we try to overcome it. I rather like some of the mechanisms illustrated in the Korean rites you describe.

 

 

 

 

Did a little teaching at a local school to a mixed audience of prospective med school applicants, so dressed (a bit) more soberly than usual:

one word "v-neck"

Also, I'm not sure I dig the broken-up herringbone on that jacket. Saw a similar one myself recently and was tempted, but put it back.

I'm excited about it was well.

Thanks!
Citan—I was just thinking this morning I need a nice pair of super dark jeans. These have broken in nicely since I bought them in 2008. I may be looking into Uniqlo's grand online sale for some cheap ones.
Dewj—it's a Brooks Brothers from last year. I couldn't believe that a Madison fit fit me so well and had double vents, no alterations necessary. Dream come true.
Now, who can recommend me an affordable pair of brown or possibly snuff suede longwings?

Floresheim haviland?

Tie is wool and has some brown in it, everything I'm wearing is wool except for the cotton shirt but I get what you're saying with some of my stuff.
