These are our excessities.  Brilliant word, well done.

Yeah, I felt like a dick as I wrote it, but I too enjoy the accidental word.

Ah, we all do it.  And it's great, isn't it?

 

I mean, I'm not saying that our blurring of what would be excessive to most into necessity for us, is actually wrong.  I think it's more a matter of knowing something, being unable to un-know it.  No matter what happens in life, I'm pretty confident I'll never buy a pair of glued-together shoes, or a jacket with massive armholes, or polyester trousers.  It's not snobbery...it's just progress, isn't it?

Just because we differ, doesn't mean we're different. :)

mimo, there's a difference between making fun of a word and having fun with the word. I was doing the latter. But I like your definition of it.

I never doubted you, Butch.

Clapey seems to have a better grasp on English than most native speakers. :teach:

 

Who knew Germans were capable of wit?

I can also confirm a) I do have a (neatly trimmed) beard and b) am not a hipster and c) don't live in New York. Just an average Aussie bloke from the country, who likes having a beard.

Have you lost some weight? I think you looked a tad more elegant when more robust, but that's just me. I also like your older suits more then the recent "skinny" Suit Supply ones, but just a matter of (personal) taste.
The cream, beige sportcoats I haven't seen you posting them in a while which always looked flattering. Nice casual outfit.

 

re: weight - I'm actually in the process of shedding a few extra pounds I put on over Christmas. Another week and I should be done. So maybe I'm in the middle of that unhealthy dieting look which will reverse once I'm back at a stable weight and the body readjusts. But overall, I'm happy with my current weight/look. It's a little less "robust" (I like your choice of word!) but it's healthier and I don't mind the changes in proportion.

 

I like having a range of silhouettes in my wardrobe; I feel there's a place for both the more fashionable and more traditional suits in a collection.

 

re: the lighter jackets - they'll be back once summer returns, rest assured!

I was thinking about that shirt fabric myself; what's it like? Beyond solids, what ties might go well with it? It seems a slightly awkward check size.

Cant say I'm a fan of the self-designed collar, DonC. Some odd creasing.
post #68834 of 78719

Don't know if I did this right. But I am all ears.

^Not bad. Tie would be nice with a plain light blue spread collar shirt also.
