Looks like a deal to me. Columbo cashmere and Jort is full canvas.

The cashmere might not be very good, made from the shorter hairs (or something)

I would advise against SuSu in any form. See recent SuitSupply posts for rationale.

I've been following the SS thread and have seen recent posts regarding trouser issues.  So, proceeding with caution with trousers seems warranted based on the complaints. However, I've had SS odd jackets and waistcoats of all fabrics hold up quite well over many, many wears, with one jacket purchased more than 2 years ago.  Advising against ALL SS garments seems excessive, IMO.

What are the issues with pants? I have a suit from them, and the pants have held up fine after....two wears.

I thought the problem is limited to Havanas, and even then not all models.

 

Cheers,

We knew that just from the earrings.

 

Huh?

I dunno - "mulatto" just seems like such a weird word. I associate it with pirates. I had to go and look it up to realise it means mixed race.

 

You have a swashbuckling look about you SB, you have to admit. (I mean that in a good way of course.)

post #31464 of 37396

No offense taken, I was just confused. And I'll take swashbuckling any day of the week!

1. Racism definitely is everywhere. Los Angeles generally gets a pass in how it's viewed in popular culture, but an Angeleno would be a fool to pretend it doesn't exist.
2. Agreed about mulatto. Most people I know couldn't care less about it, other than that it sounds odd, for lack of a better word. On the other hand, I've had people lose their minds over the word...though those are what I would consider the social justice warrior type...South Park had a great episode on it recently.
3. I for one would love a 2 day seminar on tasteful dirty talk, hosted by Clags...obvi.

The first and most important step in combating racism is to accept that fact that we are all racists.

 

I am a racist.

 

Once I acknowledge this, I can (if I so choose) work to eliminate - or realistically, minimise - racism from my mindset and my behaviour.

 

The other important step is to remember that "race" is not a scientific term. It is not possible to determine a person's "race" from their DNA code. In any case, even if one could somehow come up with a scientific definition for "race", most people would be a mixture of races (i.e mulattos to varying extents).

 

I'm reminded of the fact that Hitler defined an "Aryan" race, in which he included most Western Europeans and British, but excluded Slavs. WTF? One man's Caucasian is another man's subhuman.

 

I haven't even started talking about cultural bigotry.

Commendable honesty, Cox. I fully agree, and I think the inability of most to recognize this does nothing to alleviate the issues.
post #31469 of 37396
We are all the oroducts of our environments. All we can do is make the best of it; getting defensive when our flaws are pointed out does not help.

Unfortunately that's the most common reaction when you try to talk about any issue. To be fair I used to be like that too.
