I will wear DB tomorrow because I have a dinner to go to.

I remember you saying a while back that you tend to wear DB's when you have to go out to something after work.

Did he call them that or is that just your reference to attendees at Pitti Uomo? I didn't realize they had become a class.

Ok, on 3rd Ave I just saw a guy in a brown DB with LOUD blue stripes. I stared.

We are all thinking it, but I'm gonna ask... Was he black?

I had the gray/brown Fox flannel with white/crimson stripe made up as DB (4 piece, in fact). Did you ever get yours made?

Last Wed I was in SF, SB blazer, OCBD, cotton pants, basically a California Tux with no tie, walking along the embarcadero to the Ferry building and a carful of people went by and several women shouted "NICE SUIT" at me. I really don't know if that was meant as hipster-ironic. I mean, it was a nice jacket, but hardly eye-catching. But a jacket of any kind is so rare there nowadays that who knows.

At least you weren't invited to an orgy.

SWD reference from a lol-worthy post.

Goddamn bloggers.

The fact that you practice law makes this even more horrendous.

You must mean Simon. He's a lawyer. Corbera doesn't work, that's so small timer.

I saw a cleric in a collar wearing a DB suit today. I had already passed him before I remembered to stare.

I stare at double breasted women.

I guess I'd be more likely to stare at a single breasted woman?

Unless there is a clear signal that your DBs are negatively impacting your career, wear them and enjoy them. From what I gather, you are inferring what you can from mere looks, which themselves are very easy to imagine.

I see you have come to terms with the public reaction to your infamous DB.
