I think this sums it up nicely.

Parts of Boston are similar to this, too - namely, Cambridge and Somerville. But mostly Cambridge.

If your city doesn't have a significant Latin influence, I don't want to live there.

Agreed.

Also true, but most very large coastal American cities can say the same, I think.  It’s a combination of a number of factors, including sheer size of course and, importantly, being a major port-of-entry for immigrant populations.   New York is an obvious example.

 

What makes SF different in degree if not, perhaps, in kind is that for a very long time its self-identity has been for many residents bound up in its purportedly counter-cultural ethos:   the culture it’s always been  counter to, so to speak, being the American northeast.   To some extent that’s true all of the American west, of course, but SF has stronger credentials, being not only an entry point for foreign immigrants but also for other Americans from the east seeking, for whatever reasons, a change from their situation ‘back east’.  Think gold rush, and later the ‘beat’ generation and the ‘sixties counterculture.

 

Cheers,

Yes, I'm particularly sensitive to overly broad, nonsensical pronouncements from people with an ax to grind.

I feel like something should be said here regarding opinion and knowledge. Perhaps some sort of quote would capture my meaning. Unfortunately I can't think of any right now. Oh well, nothing to do about it.

Ah, yes. And some sort of pun about corrosive nature of expressing unsolicited opinion, especially those whose content is explicitly grounded in ignorance.

I know some find Caustic to be an asshole, but this seems much ado about nothing in my view.

I didn't really see anything silly or negative about his initial post.

San Francisco IS weird, in the sense that it is different...though I would argue that's one of its many charms. One of my favorite places to visit, but I could never live there...people of my political persuasions are not generally enjoyed there lol.

Ugh looking for a Lazio SuSu Navy SC, but come to find out they don't make a Lazio SC. Think I will have to trial a Havana instead. Thoughts on the two below?

I much prefer option one if you are looking for versatility and aren't adding to an already deep collection of navy SC's. For that matter, I think I prefer option one absolutely.

I, too, wish they made Lazio jackets.  I believe the Hudson is the odd jacket closest to the Lazio suit jacket in fit and structure (I own both Lazio and Hudson).  With it's lack of structure the Havana jacket is a very different animal.  Nothing wrong with that, but not much of a substitute for the Lazio if that's what you're looking for.

 

Cheers,

 I should add that despite similarities of fit and structure, the Hudson jacket differs from the Lazio in two important stylistic respects:  it's got a patch breast pocket and pleated shoulders, neither of which of course is to everyone's taste.

 

Cheers,

Do Lazio and Hudson have similar buttoning points?
