Claghorn, can't you see we are trying to discuss foreskin at the moment?

We do not train to be cute here. Being cute is for the weak. When a styleforum poster confronts you, he is the enemy, and the enemy deserves no cuteness!

YES SENSEI!

I think @Claghorn's dislike of grey suits stems in large part from the fact that they make far inferior BlazerSuits compared with shades of blue and he likes his clothing to convey more of a hobbyist vibe than a man forced to wear a suit vibe.

Crusty on fire right now. Really hitting the spot.

3 inch ties make me so :(

Yeah, exactly =[ If it were wider I'd have bought it already.

I interviewed this afternoon. I removed my tie. This is what the world has come to. Dressing down for interviews.

Had you gone with a knit, it would not have been necessary to do so.

I haven't been all that thrilled with the quality of SuSu's ties. I do have a couple. Hardly wear them. Not quite wide enough, don't dimple well.

post #31271 of 37438
SuSu value proposition falls off a lot on all other items, IME - squares, ties, socks, shirts, sweaters. All those items are based in my experience. Other items just look cheap to me - bags, shoes. Ties are really bad, small, bad knots and not wide enough. Which is too bad b/c some look quite good.

Yeah, no. Any tie was too much tie. I even had second thoughts about the jacket, but I gotta be me, right?

Looks like I"m going to Madrid next month and was hoping to pick up some Carmina's while there.  It wasn't quite clear to me with the recent price increase...Does that raise the price at the store front thus putting it out of the $350USD range?    

post #31274 of 37438

Pity, they do look nice.

 

Thoughts on these?

I kinda want a camelhair jacket but made in DB so I probably won't get these. I really like that tweed but the last time I got a bold tweed it came out horrendous so..

If I were to get a checked Havana, it would definitely be this:
