Hey, rock the wrinkles. I'm just making a 100% well-intentioned grooming suggestion which a man with your obvious self-assurance can take or leave as you see fit. 
 
Besides, you may notice my very deliberate choice of wording: "stern", not "old". Direct sunlight makes everyone squint, but if you were walking around like that indoors all day, it might scare the children.
 
Trying to look younger than one's real age is lame. But looking good for one's age is the very essence of style.

I think your reaction is odder than my comment.

 

People are way too precious about stuff like this. It's just another med, people. Orders of magnitude safer than aspirin or paracetamol (go and look up the therapeutic-to-toxic ratios if you don't believe me.) Wears off after a few months. Just another weapon in the styling armamentarium of the modern male.

 

Besides, I would never recommend something I don't use myself. mwink[1].gif

Funny that you use the eyebrow-raising emoticon posting about botox. rimshot.gif

 

I'll be content to be wrinkled one day, but I wear linen pants now, so maybe that says something about me.

Had a forward fitting yesterday for the coat bellow (3 roll 2 in a donegal tweed that is not from Donegal). Requested a bit more of waist and just a tiny bit tighter skirt. Looking forward to another fitting scheduled for next saturday.

It's a limited edition piece from around the time of the Bejing Olympics.

Here's a couple of pictures of it:





Here's my only Seagull:

^ Really nice. (And I was wrong about the batons - they're clearly not gold.)

 

I imagine the little Gate Of Heavenly Peace logo is a feature of this LE, as it's not normally seen on this brand's watches IIRC.

 

Personally I would have preferred a cleaner, logo-free dial, but each to his own.

 

Anyway, sorry about this OT diversion folks. But I just had to pay the man a compliment on his timepiece.

I love the navy grenadine tie, and the spread on the collar.  May I ask who made the well-fitting suit?  I think this is a good example, by the way, of how jetted pockets have a slimming, streamlined look.

Kai - that is a fine suit - B&R really seems to be working for you. I have to agree with those who said that the PS just has to go, though, and the tie is also rather too satiny for my tastes.

You don't have one? Very high? Single digits? biggrin.gif

 

 

I meant "Single". Though I started this season with a 4,X I'm likely to end with a 5,X. The mental side of golf is much more important than the technical...

I think you'd greatly benefit from a smaller tie knot, like a 4ih.

Thanks. Suit was supplied. There are pocket flaps, I'm just generally not so fond of them.

Put on some weight shog[1].gif
Is this suit too tight to wear now or still (just) doable? Plan to loose approx. 5kg.
(This isn't an outfit, just want your opinion the suit's fit)

post #55826 of 78722
With 5 kg down you should be good to go. I presume the extra saddle bag is mostly around the midrift

Today is the debut of yet another MTM shirt from Brooks, which I've combined with a suit from Paul Stuart which I've not worn in a year - well overdue its airing.

I love it, crusty.

Summer in linen with a straw fino Borsalino bought in Berlin :)

Nice look Szarmant. The hat fits you very well and goes nicely with the linen jacket
