As for light this is what I am dealing with this time of the year musicboohoo[1].gif

 

I just taught my students about the mathematics of this last week.  :teach:  Science and math at it's best (or worst for you).

Thanks for the constructive criticism.  (I think?  or intentionally snarky?!?  can't tell!)

 

Yeah, I have no definition in my shoulders/arms.  need to get that somehow.  the suit and coat are both 52!  that's a large.  also 50 is tight in the shoulders/chest and very loose in the gut area.  bulking won't help that.  but will it help me fit better into 52?

 

not doing this though--which seems to be a very popular retort to the 'bulk up!' comment in the streetwear side of styleforum.

what do you wear in the winter?

Sorry if I came across as Snarky, I was shooting for 'tongue in cheek'. As for my winter wear in Toronto I just have a topcoat from London Fog that I got at The Bay for $200. I don't dress up all that often and when I do I'm downtown where I can be strategic and make use of the Path as much as possible so I'm not outside for more than the time it takes to get a cab or cross the street to wherever I'm going for a weekend dinner. But yeah, if you're going to be out much in the winter here you definitely need something warm, including head gear. Fashion wise it's very accepted that you'll see people in toques or heavy hats with ear flaps and such. January and February and even in to March can be painfully cold here.

hahaha.  no, didn't mean you :)

 

yes, i do a lot of walking, so i had a feeling that coat was going to be useless.  it's luciano barbera, but the line is called "samurai".  i don't know much about barbera, but i assume "samurai" was targetted for the japanese market?   aka mild tokyo winters?

 

oddly enough, yesterday i was freezing waiting to cross the street, and i see some guy in a nice long warm overcoat rush out of royal bank plaza and straight into a cab!  seems to be the way here.  

 

i lived in zurich and boston before here, so i'm used to the cold, though this may be the coldest.  have not lived in my native brazil since i was 18.

What do you guys think about this jacket.  Also, new shoes inspired by Cotton Dockers.  These are the tightest 10.5 D's I've ever tried on.  I'll try to get them stretched.  Otherwise, I'm selling them.

Another nice tweed, but surely you are a rare bird indeed in the city of Angels, and even more so as an entertainment attorney (I recall that correctly, right?), wearing tweed. What is it today, 65deg?

 

Um, it is currently 60 degrees in LA, thank you very much. And tomorrow it's going to be in the 50s, so there.  Might be time to pull out the overcoats...

 

As for the deer bone, my wife bought it from The Hanger Project. Excited to get to use it tonight on today's shells.

Honored, hope you can make them fit as they look great.

 

I dig the coat, but I like eccentric tweeds. As a teacher, I thought it was required to have a tweed jacket with elbow patches, no? Not sure how you got away with it for so long.

It looks nice, but the action back/half belt make it extremely rustic, so I'd try to wear it accordingly. It seems like you did a pretty good job here, but for future reference, just avoid any shiny or city looking items and you'll be fine. Ideally this jacket should be worn when you're going shooting, but I don't know whether you'll have many opportunities for that in New York!
