The DB Stare - Page 5

^ Mina made mine as well - ink-navy linen DB odd jacket with three-patch pockets just one-button on the cuff

I notice few buttons on the cuff to be an older thing, like around the late 50's early 60's.

Forgive me for forgetting that the interwebz is a place where igents go to express feelings and ask questions they already know the answer to. I do not, however, apologize for my earlier sentiment which, as it happens, holds true.

Keep wearing the DB if you'd like. If Andre3stacks can do it in a commercial you'd better start looking at other things. Just saying.

Having been a resolute 4-button cuff man (2 working, 2 sham) for ever, I confess that now that everyone has four, and some have five (ugh), the idea of just one or two (for some reason, not three) is increasingly intruiging.

I'm relieved to hear this since it gives us a way to tell you apart from David Brooks. *

i think you should get a 10, that'll allow you to display them in 6 more configurations than usual

The zip cuff will replace the button cuff for most men like the zip fly has replaced the button fly.

You should copyright this now.

To the original post, I have also noticed an uptick in the dress in NYC, albiet more recently. That said, since I just obtained my first bespoke DB, I dont care if its the new frock coat. I will happily endure the stares for as long as I can wear it.

I forgot to copyright double monks, to my recent financial regret. Also felt lapel flowers.

Oh: crazy socks.

My guess is that the stare is one of admiration. Of course, the DB is hard to get right but having accomplished this, the style is quite pleasing. This is especially true for one of slender form.

Other than that I have been to Chicago recently, which was quite "suity" at least on Friday (not on Saturday) and did not see any DB. In New York, where I am most every day, suits sightings are up from 2008 but DB sightings are way down. At least in my field of vision.

SF clearly needs something like this:

219

What can I say? It's a slow day.

But one thing I have noticed. DB seems to freak people out these days. I take it the DB's day is finally over and regular joes now see them as frock coats?

Interestingly, three piece SB does not generate the same astonished stare.[/quote]\

The difference is you have a younger audience that haven't been thru the style cycles and they don't know what to think.stirpot.gif

I only see old Chinese guys here rocking DBs. But then again, they're also the only people I see wearing suits out in Queens.
