Cross-post from the watch appreciation thread. Sorry for the bad quality, Baroque lighting, and close crop. Next time I wear this suit of armor, I'll be sure to get full and detailed shots.

More than 30, less than 50. I'm sad that I can't wear them all, feels like neglecting children.

I've been going through picking out ones that don't fit quite right, and giving them away to similar sized friends of mine.

My closest friends who are either slightly smaller or larger than I rarely have to shop.

Aside from maybe Brooks Brothers, the least expensive of the fully canvassed jackets that I know of up here in Canada is Samuelsohn which go for more than $1,100 full retail and after Canadian taxes. I really do like both of my Samuelsohn jackets but the idea of trying to fill out a wardrobe at $1,100 a pop is daunting (even though I know most wardrobes are accumulated over years). I'm starting to keep an eye on the 'Recent Purchases' thread to see what kinds of things people are getting from EBay and will probably, eventually, experiment with that route. I imagine that part of that process would necessitate access to a tailor but I'm sure there are some good ones in a city the size of Toronto.

I honestly don´t know. I have about 10 that I love and use. The rest gets limited airtime.

Liked it. But i'm a sucker for any Sci-Fi. n Clooney was a hoot.

I am actually looking forward to winter just to see your tweedage in full flow.  It is definitely your season.  Albeit a Californian winter, naturally...I've no interest in seeing you in a Goretex coat and wellingtons.

Me too, I think.  but I don't like it with the light grey flannels and loafers, each of which are lovely in their own right.  It's just too casual and rugged.  I can see it better with a solid shirt, maybe flannel, perhaps even layered with a sweater or cardigan, with cords or twills/chinos.  And perhaps...I don't know...some kind of brogued derby, maybe even in shell cordovan?  I don't know if you have anything like that...do you?

There's nothing wrong with being better dressed than folks around you.  Especially when you want the last table.

 

Sorry if we were at crossed purposes; I must have misread your post. :)

Me too, but a movie has to have a certain minimum standard of realism to be worth it to me. I'm no scientist, but science is a passionate hobby, and when I see things I know couldn't happen, it reminds me way too much that it's a movie, which takes away all suspense. Now, two caveats... I have NOT seen Gravity. I am basing this judgment on the long trailers I've seen. Also, Star Trek defies all these rules since warp drives are probably physically impossible, but I still love the show. So there. :slayer:

^^ Everything he said.

 

Realism rules; well-reasoned fantasy also has its place.  "Just for the movies" ruins every one of them for me.
