Yes. Really irritating. They're going to ruin this site.

What about wearing banker's stripe suits? Are they only appropriate for bankers? And any other fabric pattern inappropriate for a banker's suit?

Is it only beautiful, if it´s not vintage?

Random question to you gents, do you have pants with heavy fabric (tweed etc) hemmed to 1.5 as well?

I'm assuming that this is following the argument that cuffed trousers drape better and heavier fabrics won't need the help?

 

Not sure if that really makes a difference to those that cuff. For trousers that I don't have cuffed I still keep a substantial amount of fabric (usually around 2 inches) inside the leg when I have it hemmed. The whole drape thing always struck me as a bit of unnecessary post hoc rationalization.

Probably right, Clagster.  But I also find that it's the heavier cloths that actually look best with the cuffs anyway - flannel, tweed, etc.  That fat line over the shoe just sets them off a treat I think.

If you are Scottish (as half my family is), the Black Watch has, at the very least, a mixed reputation. It was for many years the colour of the oppression of free Scots, being the tartan of the regiment set up to control the Highlands. In this capacity it has a strong association with the Munro Clan (my mother's), which was notorious as being a Highland clan which sided with the English / Lowland government. The equivalent for Ireland would be to wear the colours of the Black and Tans...

 

However, it has to be said that it has a very satisfying look to it, and actually I think AAS's all-Black Watch fit is one of the best things I've seen him post - I think you either have to use tartan sparingly or go all the way. There's no halfway house.
