Did Derek break Mikael while I slept? I'm surprised he doesn't have thicker skin given his career. For what it's worth, when he talked about music or being a musician in an interview, he seemed like a down to earth straight up guy.

Less so when started name dropping, but I guess who you know/who you can associate yourself with is an important part of his business

Hi Butch-  love the way you've matched the over check with the square -  great tie too.

Derek, it disturbs me that again we are of one mind: how much less interesting to be a douchey dresser who turns out to be a nice guy, than a better dressed guy who is surprisingly douchey.  Yeah baby.

If I'm picky then I don't really like the tie, but you can pull it off.  What I really wanted to say is that this looks great.  Non-horsebit loafers, with socks...definitely the right way to go!  And burgundy sings with that fit.  Nice.

And what, might I ask, is wrong with being in the Victorian age?  OK, I know you have that whole post-imperial thing going on, but that doesn't mean we should cease to dress a bit like imperialists...

 

In other news, I took the unusual step yesterday of giving my bank details to a Nigerian on the internet.  Be gentle.

Pfff....Derek would be so much more of a man if he'd met Coolio.

Pliny, I think the scale of the patterns of tie and jacket might be a bit close too one another, but it's not big of a problem, if at all.
I would only praise your recent outfits if it would not be for the fun socks, which for me ruin the otherwise very tasteful combinations.

??? Thanks i guess. Im guilty of a lot of sartorial faux pas, but fun socks is not one of them.

Well, wouldn't you agree your socks are the brightest piece of clothing you are wearing today? wink.gif
post #61227 of 78722

"Fun" implies frivolity, as if coloured socks were some trivial frippery unbecoming of a gentleman.  I find Pliny's socks both pleasing and appropriate. Everyone's allowed a little drop of dandiness somewhere. :nodding:

It's not my intention to call Pliny rude or his style tasteless, it's obviously quite the opposite of it.
Only I don't like his bright socks, which I think are referred to as "fun socks" in general at SF.
post #61230 of 78722

I wouldn't for a moment suggest you were rude; I generally find you erudite and pleasant.  I'm just an advocate of bold sock expression, and dislike the word "fun" in general.  But it's healthy to differ on occasion. :lol:
