Nevermind.

I don't think it's American Trad, because I don't think such a thing exists, and I was sort of alluding to the jokes that LA Guy was making about the obsession on AskAndy with "American Trad."  I think that because your look isn't "citified" in that picture (for example, the lines, colors, and fabrics are soft -- decidedly not "Armani"), someone might mistakenly refer to that as American Trad. I think when people talk about American Trad, they are sort of apologists for ill-fitting suits, button-down collars being worn inappropriately (patterned buttondown with suits = fine in my book; broadcloth white button down with suit = why?) and boring/nonexistent patterns/colors.
Well, you might not like it, but I don't think there's any question that such a thing exists. Full blown Trad isn't my daily look of choice, either, but there are elements that I like. And I did pick up a hardcore Trad Southwick sack suit so I can go full tilt when I want. I prefer the more fitted look of my "new" Hickey Freeman and Oxxford in general, however. A broadcloth button down really wouldn't be Trad; an oxford would. And I would say Trad embraces certain patterns and colors almost(?) to the point of gaudiness. I think you're confusing poor American business attire with what is being more narrowly defined as AmTrad. But I digress in this thread. Looking good, Bjorn.

Roy, I'm guessing you're hanging out at the Buddha Bar in Paris? NCT
Every once in a while.
Great bar, second only to the Bar Fly at night, at least I think so.
Next time when i'm in Paris I want to check out Club Pink or something. I've heard it is a great place. But Dubai is first on my to do list (february) and Rome 2nd (April).

I am not sure about Dubai, but Rome, I love...as long as it is not so hot as the last time I was there....but I will be in Paris late this summer, Athens and Berlin as well. Really am going to need a holiday after the new shippment of Grensons gets in, if they ever do.

Hiking Chic. For anyone in the Bay Area, this is a secret beer bar I found up a trail from Muir Woods.

Is that a Jantzen shirt? God I miss the Bay. And God dammit I hate work...
post #292 of 1879
Yep, the Bay Area can be mighty beautiful. The shirt is a Polo shirt called a "Lowell Sport". It's kind of heavy weight. I like it. -Tom

It's one of the first things you learn when visiting this forum, isn't it?

Your sister is hot, Dorian. [Sorry, trying to come up with a new Forum joke re: women accessories.]
