Drake's Sale. - Page 7

post #91 of 187

SF is bad on the wallet but great on your wardrobe.

I really want a couple of shantungs but they are all 7cm. If they were 8cm, I would have kopped, I think. Just wish the prices were a little better. $115 plus shipping to the US isn't that great of a sale for a tie I wish were slightly wider.

Pay an extra $35 and get EXACTLY what you want from Will at A Suitable Wardrobe.

You also avoid the lousy customer service of Drake's and the problematic British courie

Same here. I kopped a square but removed the ties at the last second. They're at an awkward size for me, too wide for my skinny-lapeled stuff but not as wide as I like for my more conservative coats. Shame, because there were some nice patterns in the sale.

Is this the first time that you've used the term, "kopped?"

Foo had assumed I was an old dude. I told him I just dress like that for kicks.

The mad steeze, I got it.

He won't be happy with you until you're in a low gorge 4x1 and fingerless gloves.

I'm still bewildered by the fingerless gloves. I think Foo needs to try out to be a Bond villain.

Many underestimate the dexterity and fingertip motor control needed to grasp an overhead strap in the subway.

(On second thought, that's probably not it.)

Yes: he would be diabolical as a Bond villain, although most of the movie might be Bond and he arguing.

MFF: Who is your tailor?

Bond: Villain that you are, you wouldn't know that a gentleman does not discuss his women, or his tailor.

MFF: Your lapels are too narrow. Have you considered a lower gorge?

Bond: Wut?

MFF: Guards! Fetch my red felt pen! I apologize, where are my manners? Would you like a bagel while we wait? I have them submarined in to my undersea lair fresh from Zabar's.

Bond: Are you wearing fingerless gloves?

MFF: Of course! Full fingered gloves within the protected environment of an undersea lair would be preposterous! Ah...here is the pen...let us begin...

Not for whnay.. He can just toss them out the corporate jet with unwanted pocket squares as parachutes.

I wear fingerless gloves at home in winter because I keep my thermostat so low. It's an eye-tie version of yankee thrift.

already had 2 of the squares. wonder if a 3rd would be overkill.
