Isn't that a common occurrence around here?

Wait... what's the point of this thread anymore? Browsed through about 50 pages and I'm not sure I get it. 

 

Cleav's look above seems like exquisite taste for a wedding, cockails or board meeting. Does that mean everyone should go out and get a soporific tie and City suit?

I agree - he looks great. But isn't wanting to look like someone else who looks great - whether Cleav or Cary Grant - the reason behind 9/10 iGent abominations? As in, mightn't "good taste" be contextual, so a thread of random images rather loses the point...

^ The thread was better with Manton, Foo, and others around, when there was more discussion and criticism. That said, I do think Cleav is bringing a number of quality fits to the thread, pretty much all of which fit the "good taste" standard. I agree that deliberately emulating others is not necessarily a good thing, but I think when you emulate the basics and classic elegance, you're going to have a higher batting average than someone trying to emulate something from Pitti. It's better to learn from others and see why their choices work to build your own sense of style, though.

The trouble with having discussion is twofold: having people that are available to discuss, and having people that are sane enough to discuss.

^ Very true.

Well, I'm pleased to be not too far off the mark. Thanks for the compliments Gentlemen.

Discussion is good, so long as people don't take matters too personally. For me there's stuff I like that I just wouldn't wear and stuff I dislike that works on someone else; I learn regardless. A re-read of this thread reinforces that and is particularly enjoyable in seeing some sartorial journeys being taken. I always enjoyed this thread and it could be said I aspired to even consider posting in it, subsequently, I always tread carefully around these parts though it isn't as it once was!
