I don't know how to respond to that.

I'm never that subtle with my crass humor, Greg. I'm just talking about the width of the tie. The current Drakes standard is too narrow for my taste.

Thanks. It seriously only needs the cuff buttons and trouser cuffs...couldn't be happier.

Now I have to envy you as well as Stitchy? Dammit.

Yup, deal with it....I'd still trade wardrobes with you.

Is this because you like grown ass sperm?

What last do you usually go for?

I believe this shade of brown is good with light colored suits?

 

 

Sorry for the late reply, I must have missed this one. Last preference is rather a personal thing, I think, but my favourite C&J's are my Audleys on the 337 last. They only come in the rather narrow E fitting, I believe. But I do feel they are a bit more elegant than the others. This is nitpicking of course, because they're all fine shoes, but I think C&J's can sometimes look a little bit clunky compared to e.g. E.G or G.G. :cool:

 

The shade of brown of those Barrington's looks perfect to me for combining with lighter suits, but then my personal preference is for lighter shoes than the SF 'rules' would deem acceptable...

At The Wing lounge, HK Chek Lap Kok airport, partaking of a martini (Gordon's, straight up, stirred, twist). Just involved in a near miss between our passenger ferry-bus and some random giant aircraft out on the tarmac. Very odd - our bus came to a full halt at the line, waited patiently, and then suddenly decided to launch an apparent reverse-Kamikazi manoeuvre on the Boeing's front wheel. Fortunately called off the exercise at the last moment.

 

Aircraft also came to an unscheduled halt. I wonder how much that costs in wasted jet fuel? I wouldn't want to be that bus driver right now.

 

OK, back on topic:

 

- I passed on the SuitSupply dove-egg-blue 3pc suit. (Dove eggs are blue, right? Or is it iguana eggs? I forget.)

- Booked my first consultation with Joe Ha (Aussie B&Tailor rep) for Monday week. Oh, I'm all weak at the knees now.

Are you going for the brown Drapers silk-wool-linen in a peak lapel, as planned?

post #6264 of 37405

I think so. It would really fill a gap in my wardrobe. And I'm leaning these days more and more towards suits as my personal style.

 

Clags, I will certainly one day post some photos of fits that demonstrate where I'd like to be, as you suggested. Just haven't got 'round to it yet.

B&Tailor would fill so many gaps in my wardrobe.

Pictures of street parties with flag bunting always remind me of the silver Jubilee...I won the fancy dress competition at ours wearing a guard's uniform with bearskin hat.

Unfortunately expressions of national pride and the union jack became synonymous with fascists and xenophobes for most of the following 20 years. I get a sense that this is no longer the case.
Odd how an innocuous photo can remind one of so much.
