Only 5, huh? Â I guess I'll lean more towards the basics: 1. Â Good watch (seems we're al in agreement; as recent ads in magazines will tell you, it's the most telling thing you wear-- even more than shoes) 2. Â A classic tan trenchcoat 3. Â Grey flannel trousers 4. Â A solidly constructed italian or english white shirt 5. Â Dark suit, preferably navy or grey and single breasted
Kitsune-san: Very well chosen. Some Kaga-isms: 1. "Good manners and handmade shoes" -- the mark of a gentleman according to Bryan Ferry 2. A well-cut suit. Whether your definition of a well-cut suit is a Dior Homme bumfreezer or a bespoke Darren Beaman sebiro
, this matters. Used, new, price, whatever. 3. Something from Hermes, be it a watch, a belt, a pen, cufflinks... and hopefully not a tie. 4. The perfect jeans and the perfect white T-shirt. You don't have to go to Zimmerli for this one. 5. A cashmere sweater 6. Gold-braided midnight-blue silk-lined cape, the better with which to shout, ALLEZ CUISINE.........
