^ No panty line. Impressive.

Just googled those drawers. Look too much like the compression shorts I use on long runs. Swamp-ass city.

That's how I colloquially refer to Washington, D.C.

I'll be hitting up London, Naples, Sorrento and Florence in a few weeks. There are a few threads on SF discussing these cities, but most are outdated.

Any recommendations for places to eat or drink and, of course, places to shop? I know some places will closed due to the summer break and I won't have enough time to get any tailoring done, but keen for suggestions on good places for ties, shirts, shoes etc.

Thanks!

I was skeptical, but I live in a much hotter, more humid climate than you and they work pretty well for me. They're not perfect, and I still try out new brands once in a while, but I haven't found anything I like better yet.

Careful.  Google has a "This site may be hacked" warning on that site.  Just FYI.

CUNY's Center for LGTBQ Studies is abbreviated "CLAGS."

Can somebody give a list of shirting fabric weaves from most casual to formal?

Oxford is probably the most casual, but where does poplin come into play? Royal Oxford? Twill?

Someone else can fill in the spaces in between.

My absolute favourite restaurant is "Hafez" on Hereford Road, Bayswater. Take a cab/Uber, or it's a 10 minute walk from Bayswater, Queensway or Notting Hill Gate tube. Might seem odd to choose an Iranian place, but trust me, it's uniquely homely, arty and delicious.

London is a feast of menswear of course. Check out the brands on Bond Street, tailors (including RTW) on Savile Row, shirts and shoes on Jermyn Street.

Shoe highlights would be G&G while on Savile Row, Edward Green and Tricker's (under-mentioned on SF) on Jermyn St, and George Cleverly in Burlington Arcade off Bond Street. But one very specific recommendation: arrange to visit Justin Fitzpatrick (www.jfitzpatrickfootwear.com) in his personal dungeon off Carnaby Street. His collection just gets better and better and he's a great guy. I was just there. He also has a barely touched bottle of Glenmorangie waiting for you.

If you're into watches then best selections are Watches of Switzerland on Regent Street and Wempe on Bond Street, in that order.

You can walk to all the places I mentioned in one go, then take your cab to dinner. Enjoy.

This does sound like something you'd find in London. Sorry, what are we talking about here?

Yes.  Alas, he's American, so it's just his shoe business based in the lower floor of a central London building.  He'd have to be British to have the bondage set up.  It's all plain vanilla I'm afraid.

 

But the shoes are outstanding for the price point.  Really worth a visit to see them in person.
