No, it is only available on the Samsung Note 3 and it is not an app. It is part of the camera. while Apple kicks outs great innovations such as different coloured phones, Samsung actually has been working on adding innovative technology. Apple is done and it is rotting.

It is a 3 button jacket, I thought. Or am I completely misinterpreting what you said. Were you hoping for a 3 roll 2?

On that note, I destroyed my S2 this weekend while trying to fix it. Hoping to go pick up a nexus 4 off craigslist today. Hope I don't get knifed!


Also, this means I have to spare you guys with pictures for a week or so till I get my new phone!

Yeah, but I can't justify plopping that much cash down for a phone. I'm currently back on my S1...

 

The phone works fine for me. I only wanted to switch because the damn thing can't multi-task anymore even after rooting. I open a web browser and my music shuts down. Hahaha.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Thanks, gents. No weight loss, but some of my suits are slimmer than others. I could stand to get some altered, replace some, but some are a roomy that I like.

AAS, it could be. I don't disagree with you.

Received my late father's two sports jackets back from the tailor. Must be at least forty years old, but after some alterations and a thorough dry-cleaning, they look brand new.

 

Jackets were made in Melbourne (I think), fully bespoke, mostly hand-stitched. Check out the pick-stitching on the lapels (look inside the spoiler) - it's insane.

 

I fixed the PS a bit for the second photo. The other jacket is a brown hounds-tooth, will post separately.

SC - D.A. Manduca (tailor's label)

Linen shirt - Stel Lee Bespoke

Tie - Harrolds

PS - my father's

Belt - Paul Smith

Pants - Pal Zileri

Shoes - Carmina

I started with the pants and then added the pink shirt.  I next put on a camel knit wool tie.  I added the green cardigan next and then chose the sport coat.  I changed the tie to a dark green grenadine and went with a burgundy paisley pocket square.  I added the lapel flower because I thought the burgundy looked a bit out of place by itself.  I then picked out the light brown shoes that were similar to the leather buttons on the jacket and then khaki socks that were similar in color to the jacket.

I think the green tie/cardi combination looks a bit awkward, AAS. But in that last pic it's barely visible, and I like it otherwise.

Sweater looks like a good fit-- but definitely would have preferred a vneck version!

Crusty, welcome back!  Hope you had a good trip.  No shopping, or are you saving that?  Lovely pic in St James's park; makes me quite nostalgic.

Not much in the way of purchases, sad to say - a couple of shirts, today's scarf, a couple of flat caps, and some cufflinks from the British Museum. As for St. James Park, a delightful place.

Nice that we both got the ballsy striped suit memo on the same day - though your hair seems to have had an overdose of Cialis (if it stands up like that for more than four hours, do you need your hair to see a doctor?).

Stichie, you already know how much I hate "fun" socks. Anyway, the socks with today's fit were just fine....9uLlxh
