You mean I can't get silk tighty-whities?

If you like to drink a lot of beer, you'll be very happy.

@The Noodles

Re: next suit. Frankly, i think the bigger problem with your suits to date have not been the shoulders but the trousers.

The drape at the seat is what I would try to address rather than more structured shoulders. That Lazio has light padding and looks good but you'll have a much better overall look if you remove the excess fabric at the back of seat and thighs.

Have you tried on the Lazio trousers? I believe they are fairly slim. Might be a good fit.

I've heard several people say very nice things about Louisville, and it's been compared to east coast cities in terms of having a real skyline and nightlife and such ... compared to Memphis which was described to me as closing by 7 PM and having no buildings over a dozen stories tall.

I don’t want to be responsible for moving this current thread beyond its actual remit, so I’d prefer not to discuss it here. Thumbs or PMs, please.

Cheers,

Friends, as promised, I've started the thread:

Milwaukee is not bad at all. Very mini Chicago is a decent summary. Memphis is a pit and quite dangerous. Cincy is a pit too, but not quite as bad. Columbus is a good fun college town. Detroit ' renaissance is over hyped but somewhat real.

To those hating on Memphis... Come on! Memphis was my home for ten years. Great professional basketball team, some awesome food, fun events (bbq fest, music fest etc.), tailgating at the grove, and fun night life if you know where to look.

Oh, and you have southern women, which is always a plus.

Where can I get a midnight blue, non-herringbone cashmere tie? Planning ahead for winter to go with the steel blue herringbone suit in process, I think that will be enough texture and color difference to look great together.

Drake's usually has a permanent midnight blue cashmere in their bespoke/trunk show collection.

This might be it.

I handled a bolt in person that was really dark and nice, kind of regret getting it.

Tommy John makes the best underpants. No need for bespoke.
